If you want to inspire other women, there are a few things you can do. However, this needs to come from a place of wanting to genuinely help others, rather than to simply be admired by others.
Those concepts come from different places. Admiration from others will not always fulfill and satisfy you, and can be a bad way to go about life. Wanting to authentically help others, on the other hand, will always fulfill you when you manage to do it. And, even if you’re not getting the deserved attention, you’ll continue doing it anyway because it’s what you really love.
Read on for how to become inspirational now.
Top ways to inspire other women:
Unapologetically love yourself
Start by loving yourself without apologies. Women who do this can be frowned upon by society – after all, the media has taught us to hate ourselves! Why aren’t we self-conscious about our weight, size, shape of our breasts, hair style…
The media really will try to make us question and hate everything.
Overcoming this obstacle is key. Love yourself no matter your size, weight, shape, and anything else about yourself.
Don’t try to shrink yourself, be quieter, or take up less space. This is your time to shine.
You’re the only one who has to spend every single day with yourself, so make sure you love yourself. It’ll be a far more enjoyable experience.
Support other women
Openly supporting other women is going to be a huge help when you want to inspire others. Champion women from all backgrounds, of all ages, and let people know why.
Who do you admire? How have they inspired you?
This will show women that we are not competition for one another the way we may have been raised. We need to build and lift one another up.
Share your stories to inspire other women
Talk about your experiences with other people to inspire them and show them that anything is possible. Be honest and authentic, and speak nothing but your truth.
Whether you spent time in a womens addiction rehab center or got out of an abusive relationship, sharing your stories lets other women know that not only is it possible, it’s ok to talk about too.
Go against the status quo
Do what is unexpected – as long as you want to. Cut your hair short.
Avoid wearing makeup. Grow your leg hair.
Do whatever makes you happy and helps you to disrupt the norm a little bit. What feels right to you? Figure it out and do it, so long as no one is intentially hurt by doing so.
Network with anybody and everybody.
You never know who you might meet and who you may be able to team up with! You could be inspiring them, just as they do for you.
Continue to grow as a person
Always aim to grow as a person. Read books and listen to podcasts. Take courses.
Improve your skills.
Never stop learning and growing and encourage other women to do the same. Lastly, follow your heart, always – even if you don’t know where it might lead you!
