Something is said to be inspiring if it leaves you inspired. Inspiring things are stimulating and exalting for the human spirit. When you come across something inspiring or inspirational, you feel that you should even change yourself and try to aim at something which left you awe-inspired. Very few people can inspire others and leave an indelible impression on someone's mind with their performance.
It is difficult to inspire someone. One needs to do something out of the box in order to inspire someone. Inspiring acts always trigger praise and adulation from people. If someone achieves a feat under pressure or in difficult circumstances, then the act becomes more inspiring or inspirational. Some people never cease to inspire with their personality, the gift of the gab, their display of courage and the way they show up fully when the going gets tough without considering quitting as an option. Learn to inspire and take inspiration from others as well.
