*CHAR SHARES* To Inspire Others | Is It About You or Them?
"I WANT TO INSPIRE PEOPLE. I WANT SOMEONE TO LOOK AT ME AND SAY "BECAUSE OF YOU, I DIDN'T GIVE UP"
Many of my FB friends posted it and I don't fault them, at all. While I understand the intent of the photo, I did not post it.
I want to inspire people without strings attached
If I want or even need others to tell me I inspire them, then my goal to inspire becomes about me, not the other person.
For me - to inspire, cannot be about me, it's always about the other person. Whether it be working at an aid station, cheering on a fellow runner, running another runner into his/her goal or whatever else is needed.
My running nor racing is dependent on if I do or do not receive praise from someone else. I am honored to be a part of many other people's journey's. I don't need them to say a word to me. :)
