It would be a great feeling if you can serve as a model for others. Kids will look up to you by taking a picture of you and putting it at their room. Imagine that one day a complete stranger would thank you for being who he is today. That would feel awesome, right? Here are some ways to serve as an inspiration to today’s millennials:
Excel at Something
You need to be good at something, right? It would be impossible if you some kind of talentless hack who does nothing but sleep all day. You can find whatever it is you are good at by attending a bunch of seminars. The topics can range from any topic you can think of. Yes, why not learn a new skill and be good at it? How about something you would love to be good at? The possibilities are endless. How about a sport since most athletes earn well into the eight figures? If you get lucky, you can afford everything you have ever dreamed of. Of course, you should never forget to show appreciation for the people who helped you along the way. It would be a shame if you end up forgetting what they did for you. When you finally become good at something, don’t forget to teach it to your loved ones. They will also appreciate learning a new skill. Besides, life is short so it would be a shame if you don’t know much. If you know a lot then you have a better chance of getting accepted for jobs you apply for. These days, companies would welcome people who are pretty knowledgeable. They don’t really like people who hate learning new things.
Take the Lead
When you are a member of a random group and nobody wants to take leadership, you can do that yourself. It will definitely be plus points for the opposite gender when they see you have some leadership skills. For example, you are in a religious group and you get tasked to lead a newspaper drive. You can take the lead and tell others where they can collect the newspaper for your group. In the end, it is going to be one gigantic mess but at least you did your best in leading by example. You can even challenge your groupmates to do their best. For example, if you see one of your groupmates is a little shy then you can tell that person to live his dreams and step out of his comfort zone for one day only. After that day, he can go back to his own world as a shy person. There is nothing wrong with that but it is not exactly good for your future if you don’t like talking to people.
Join Charity Events
Believe it or not, not everyone is born rich. There are some less fortunate people who have no choice but to just eat once a day if they are lucky. They don’t live in a big house as you do so better be thankful that you are in a better place. Besides, these things only happen once a week or even once a month. Imagine the smiles you will put in these kids’ faces when you go to their homes and help them. They won’t see that each day so it would be great for them. If you don’t think you can join the charity event, you can always make your presence felt by giving a donation. For example, a strong typhoon recently hit the area. Unfortunately, it resulted in some families losing everything they have. Thus, you can offer to donate old clothes, canned goods, and bathroom utilities. You can only imagine the smiles on their faces once they see all those items. You may have a lot of extra stuff at home and you can get rid of those things taking up space. Yes, you are definitely hitting two birds in one stone.
Everyone has haters. There will come a time when some people will bash you on social media for no apparent reason. The best way to deal with these insecure people is to ignore them completely. If you do that, a lot of people will praise you. You can’t just charge right at them when you see them. The police may look at you as a bad person. Thus, it would be better to just ignore the person altogether. It may be easier said than done though because the bad memories will come back to haunt you all the time. It would be better if you block those people from social media so you will never hear from them again. Besides, it won’t be your loss if you block them.
Praise Other People
Speaking of negativity, it would be great to do it the other way around. How about praising people for something they are good at? They would definitely be motivated to do better the next day. For example, you see a mailman who is having a hard time doing his job. You can tell him that he is doing a great job and that will definitely put a smile on his face. Even if you are at a bar, you can tell a girl that she is pretty even if you are not trying to seduce her. That will definitely enlighten her and it will lead to a great night to both of you.
Now that you know what you need to do in order to become a great inspiration for young people, better get to it starting today. After all, there is no time to waste because you can do what you can today rather than putting it off for tomorrow. Also, better make sure that you are really enjoying what you are doing. You can’t look like you are just being forced into doing it. Nobody would like you for doing that. They won’t get inspired if they see that you are not into what you are doing.
