Being A Positive Role Model Is Easier Than You Think
The gifts that you've been given are for your blessings, but they can also impact others in a significant way and there's no better feeling than impacting someones life. You'd be surprised to know how little effort you have to put out to make a difference. Even this blog that I write, i often get messages from people thanking me for enriching their knowledge and bringing different philosophies into their fitness routines. I've never looked for any recognition for it, but I know that people value it. Something as simple as doing an exercise properly at the gym when someone else is watching, once you leave the area they try to do the same exercise, so something for yourself has an impact on others. Listening to people, taking the time to respond to the best of your ability, and just going that extra mile to lead a hand is so worth it.
The biggest thing to remember is that others gave you the time and dedication to believe in you, now it's your time to give back, to stay positive, keeping their dreams alive as others did for you. Life is too short to only worry about yourself and it's a dark place alone. Open your eyes, open your hearts to others and you'll be surprised how rewarding it is.
