When it comes to being a blogger and full-time freelancer, surrounding myself with inspiring people is incredibly important. Often, I find that I am discouraged and my motivation is at a low. When this happens, spending time listening to inspiring podcasts, watching incredible videos and seeing all of the achievements I could achieve if I was motivated is the best possible way to get me back on track.
To help you feel inspired too, Sunlife have asked me to share how I find inspirational people to follow:
Follow Inspirational People On Social Media
One of the best ways to make sure you’re always connected to inspirational people is to follow them on social media. For most, this will be where they share their wisdom and inspirational quotes. You never know when you may be scrolling and you see or hear exactly what you need to help you get through the day. Whether it’s following them on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook – filling your feed with people you aspire to be like is one of the best things you can do.
Attend Events And Conferences To Listen To Talks
Another way I have discovered people that I know I want to connect with is through the events I have attended. Whether it’s blogging events, events centred around being a freelancer or travel conferences – I have listened to so many different inspirational talks. My favourite events are those that last a couple of days, leaving you feeling as though you’re ready to get started on all of your incredible ideas.
Join Local Groups And Communities
If you want to attend regular get-togethers with incredible people, try joining some local groups and communities. One of the best ways to connect with amazing people is to throw yourself into the deep and attend networking events. Whether it’s Women in business events, local networking events or even a course or class that you’ve joined – you will definitely meet some incredible people.
Keep Up To Date With The News
Whilst this may seem as though it can deter your mood, it’s is a really good way to keep up with what some of the most inspiring people in the world are doing. The best type of things to keep up with is actually day-time TV shows, as they will showcase all of the incredible stories the news doesn’t.
Follow Online Communities
There are lots of different online communities you can join in order to meet inspiring people. Whether you choose to join Facebook groups, follow hashtags or join someone’s membership – there are so many incredible chances to join communities that can change your life for the better. If you can’t find the perfect community for you, why not make your own and encourage other people to join?
