Inspire people with your imperfection

"Let's inspire each other!" That's what I always tell to myself, and that's what I encourage people around me to do. I believe this world can be a better place if we can inspire each other.

Most people think the only people who can inspire others are people who are perfect, or at least well-experienced. They think it's job for motivators and leaders. No. Everyone can be an inspiration. That's one thing I believe for sure.

No one is perfect. Some people are good in one thing, but not in another thing. In fact, there's no one can be good in everything. That's why you can share what you have to others who don't, and in return, let others do the same for you.

When we inspire each other, life is much more interesting. You might think like "I'm an imperfect person. I don't have something good to share to others. How can I inspire people?"

You don't need to be a motivator or a leader to inspire others. Let's inspire each other.

To be honest, I personally think that professional people like motivators are too mainstream. It doesn't mean they're fake or not good. I still love to learn from them, but people like them are more likely to give advices and motivation about what we should do, yet we can't directly see what they've experienced in their lives. In the end, it's not really that inspiring because we may think it's easy for them, but not for us. It will be more inspiring to see it from what we see everyday, from people around us.

Well, just for sharing, I had a friend who just lost her mom. She ws very close with her mom. She was still young, and her mom was even younger than my mom. It must be very hard for her to face this, but I saw she tried to be strong, and she still smiled although her life was very challenging at that time. For me, that's much more inspiring than a motivator who uses the most beautiful words to tell you what to do.

One of my followers on Twitter once wrote to me, "Can I have your brain? You're really good in managing your life. Your life must be full of happiness." Maybe not. Ok, I'm grateful and happy with my life, but it's not always the case. I'm a person who is very easy to worry. I worry too much actually. Once a problem comes into my life, it can drive me crazy. This is my imperfection. But, I learn from this. I reflect about my life. I reflect from my problems. That's why it turns into some quotes you read on my Twitter. If you read them, those quotes aren't about things I've already done well in my life. They're what I learned and what I reflected from what happened in my life. If I don't think too much, maybe I won't learn. And if I don't learn, I can't make some quotes and share what I've learned to people. So, I can say this is the way I inspire people. With my imperfection.

Last, I believe that God can use our weaknesses for something really good, and I believe that our weaknesses are actually the biggest thing we have to inspire to others. It's hard for people to get inspired from perfect people, but it's very easy to get inspired from imperfect people who can still be strong, never give up, and live their lives though problems keep coming. And the best thing is, you can be one of them.

So, be an inspiration. Let's inspire each other. Make this world a better place! :)

Change the Perspective

One of people who inspire me the most is Nick Vujicic . I believe many of you know about this man. If you don't, well, he's a man with no arms and no legs. Although he has this disability, he still lives his life to the fullest. He swims. He surfs. He married. He does whatever he wants. Even he inspires many people around the world with great stories about his amazing life. Isn't he really a huge inspiration? I'm sure you know what I'm gonna write here. Many things we can learn from him, like being thankful, enjoying life, creating your happiness, or living the life you want no matter what the circumstance is. But I want to talk about his great life from a little bit different thing. He inspired me in one thing when I read his book. If there's one thing I can learn from him, it's that you can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it . You can't always change your problems, but you can always chang

Look to God, not Yourself

Few days ago, suddenly I was moved to post this topic on this blog, and a perfect title came to me. Look to God, not yourself. This title really represents what I want to share with you right now. Some friends of mine, who are also following my Twitter, told me that I tweet a lot about God. Yeah, maybe it's true. I told them my reason, " Because God has the biggest role in my life. I can talk about my life, my problems, myself, but all of them are nothing if there's no God behind it. There are many things in my life that I really can't do alone. Even when I've done my best, I still can't. I need God. Only God can help me and make it work. " God is the key of everything in my life. Without God, I'm just an imperfect and weak man. Life is too challenging, I can't even handle it with my own strength and ability. I am not able. That's why I really need to look to God. The only reason I stand still now is because I look to God. There are
