Qualities of an Inspirational Person
When it comes to labeling a person as inspirational, it’s quite a very subjective matter, and truth be told, there’s really no single fitting definition for it. What we’re saying is one person’s standards to become inspirational will most likely differ to another individual’s criteria. So, based on your own standards, do you believe the qualities below are sufficient to label someone as inspirational?
1 – Feeling of Empathy Towards Other People
The world is a violent place and no one can argue with that. It’s really painful to see when people suffer at the hands of other people. But what is more bothering is the fact that more and more people don’t care anymore. This is why if you meet someone who goes the extra mile to care, it’s kind of inspiring. Empathy is no longer a common human attribute these days.
2 – Inspirational People Stand Up for Others
While there is some truth to the notion that many inspirational people are wealthy, privileged, or rich, but the thing is unlike other members of the elite, they don’t exploit people just to be on top of everyone else. Instead, they become an inspiration to the underprivileged by simply standing up for their rights. What really makes them remarkable is that they still do it even if it appears they get nothing out of it. People like Dr. Moshe Kantor are even more remarkable because they make it their lives’ story to champion a specific cause, benefiting other people than themselves.
3 – They Possess Courage
This is a no brainer right here. In other words, there’s no way you can call someone inspirational without courage. Yes, it’s true that standing up for others can be done based on human instinct alone, but it definitely will take courage to face adversities, challenges, and even threats with the simple objective of inspiring others. For this person, the threat to his or her life does not really matter, so long as he or she is successful in sending his or her message, which in this case is believed to inspire others to fight for a certain cause. No other man could best exemplify this than former South African president Nelson Mandela.
4 – Strong Believer in Collective Power
Inspirational people are those who lead others in organizations and groups which serve to support particular causes, not cause conflict or violence in society. While there are so many people who appear to inspire others by leading groups and organizations, some of them don’t deserve to be called inspirational because of the cause or reason for the establishment of their group or organization, which can either cause chaos or lead to the spread of negative information.
