Each of us not only have the ability to inspire, but the obligation to inspire. We should use our words and actions to inspire those around us. We can inspire family, friends, co-workers and others. Sometimes, a simple smile exhibited for a job well done may inspire an individual to greatness. I remember my teacher smiling when I was able to tutor one of my classmates successfully. That smile inspired me to pursue a career in teaching.
There will be many times in your life when carefully crafted words will inspire someone to make a positive change in their life. Parents can provide positive guidance to their children through words and actions. In the workforce, words and actions from an employer can impact production positively.
Words do not need to be spoken to inspire. Think of how you have been inspired by the books you have read. I have sought to inspire a love of learning in general and mathematics in particular by the workbooks that I write. You do not need to write a book to be inspirational. A simple note may be as impactful as an entire book. Do not hesitate to use words and actions to inspire.
