The BEST way to change someone....

Passion is contagious! So often people make the mistake of trying to "change" others by convincing them they are wrong, shaming them, using guilt, blaming, or even with physical force. You can not "change" another person, but you can INSPIRE them! Just like the saying "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink." You can tell people what to believe, you can show people how to do things differently, but you can never make them take action to change if they don't want to.

I find "inspiration" is much more effective! People want to be part of things when they see it causing joy or excitement for other people. They want to learn about things when they see how far you have gone. They get excited when they see you smile, laugh, and show your enthusiasm for what you are passionate about. Change occurs naturally, you don't have to force it. Allow passion to inspire change. If you are truly living your passion, people will not only notice, but they will want to get involved too!

Today, forget about trying to change anyone, live your passion, share your total excitement and Live Inspired Now!
