{ sunday's inspiration } How Do You Inspire Someone???

Throughout a few months, my father was able to work on his painting, with little help and lots of inspiration I was able to capture the process and end result!

I wanted to share some beginning pictures of my dad getting ready to start doing his first painting...well, maybe not his first EVER but his first in a loooooooong time! I was hoping to inspire my dad into getting back in touch with his creative side. My dad is very talented when it comes to art. He just never really continued on with his work. I know sometimes I get off track with doing things that I love to do...and once in a while someone or something will light that fire under my butt to finally do it.

I bought him an easel set last year that comes with a starter kit of acrylic paints, canvas, brushes and carrying case with a built in easel. I also bought him a separate kit of brushes in their own carrying case. I was hoping to spark that fire and give him some inspiration to start painting once again.

Here are a couple of lessons on how to inspire people.
Inspirational Tip # 1: Give Encouragement To Those Who Need It.
You might be surprised at how a few words of encouragement can give people inspiration. Simple words like "You can do it" or "I believe in you" have been known to spark a certain fire in others. Before every big battle, generals would always give their soldiers a pep talk of some sort. Don't be afraid of saying the wrong thing either. Follow your heart and try your best to uplift other people's spirits. There are other ways of giving encouragement as well. A smile, a nod of a head or even a thumbs-up sign can work wonders on a person who has lost their way.

Inspirational Tip # 2: Teach By Example.
Another effective way on how to inspire people is by becoming a good example. Leaders who want to motivate their people should represent the very values they want to bring out in the group. Coaches who want to inspire their team should be the very definition of hard work and discipline. Sometimes, you don't have to use words to get others inspired. The power of a good example is enough.

Inspirational Tip # 3: Be Sincere with Your Thoughts, Words and Actions.
You can't learn how to inspire people if you're not sincere about it. Otherwise, you're only fooling yourself. Think about your motives for wanting to inspire others. Whatever your reason behind wanting to inspire people will be your anchor when you lose your way. Always think about how much you want to help another individual or how much you want to motivate people, and you're all set.

Learning how to inspire people is a very noble mission indeed. You're not alone in that regard and you'll soon find out just how many people out there sincerely want to inspire others as well. There is no age limit or required gender to inspire others. You don't have to be a certain race or nationality to be able to evoke strong emotions too. All you have to do is be steadfast in your cause and never give up.

My Dad is the Most Creative Person I Know! (maybe that's where I get it?)

Throughout a few months, my father was able to work on his painting, with little help and lots of inspiration I was able to capture the process and end result!

It was such a cool experience watching him get back into his creative groove. Its definitely a challenge if you haven't painted in a while but there is also a great feeling of freedom and accomplishment when you finally finish your first piece and look at it on the wall.

It was definitely a memory being able to be a part of this with my dad. How lucky am I too actually paint with my dad???

I hope that he was inspired enough to continue with painting.  Bravo Senior William Dali Deutsch!
