Being part of this responsibility pact is not about sitting back and being quiet about what you believe. You need to step out there and deliver your points, and hopefully inspire some like-minded souls to travel down a similar path of social responsibility. I am still on my journey of working towards being inspirational in terms of the responsibility pledge. However, I am glad to have found inspiration to blog about it from one fellow colleague of mine, a blogger named Caterina Solang.
We speak different languages, we have different backgrounds, we don't even write about the same topics. The only similarity between us is that we are both inspired by HER passion for blogging. Yes, you read correctly - she has the ability to inspire herself through passion as well.
After talking with her for a few hours I was starting to feel more and more enthusiasm for blogging - even though I had never even tried before. Just the way she goes about her blogging and talks about it to different people sparks intense interest in each of us willing to lend an ear. I was so interested into why she was tremendously excited all the time about the blogging world that I even decided it was a good idea to join myself - and I am very thankful for that. She has inspired me and I am sure many others while she was simply just being herself and doing what she loves.
We need more people to inspire in the world, and more people who we can look up to. That is why I have compiled a list of how to be inspirational - especially when spreading the message of being socially responsible and green. The more people who have this spark ignited within them will cause a greater trend of positive change. So, without further adieu:
How to Be Inspirational
|Follow your own path.|
- Be yourself - the thing that truly inspires people is the fact that we notice that you are actually a real person. The fact that "it" really can be done! Its very motivating to know that others who have gone before you have succeeded.
- Speak up - Although you might be doing everything right, you aren't being heard. Unless you speak up about what you are doing and why it is worthwhile no one will have the opportunity to be inspired by your story.
- Do the right thing - This doesn't mean do what people tell you is right, but instead do what you know is right. Change is almost always greeted with opposition - so don't be afraid to face the critics.
Overall, although the main aim is to inspire others to follow your new responsible lead - the main thing I want from this small list is that you all learn to be inspired by yourself. Just as Caterina has been able to keep up her amazing blog not for others nor for praise, but for her true love of literature; I hope that you can inspire yourself to keep on being green and socially responsible no matter the criticism or difficulty. Take your own path - and see how far it goes, and if all else fails you can still look back and inspire yourself to continue and who knows who will want to tag along on the way.
