Day 11: To Inspire…Imbue

Inspiration Freeway SignAs children we try to instill good behaviors to our youth.  We want hem to lean what is right and learn what’s wrong.  We want them to represent us well as though we knew better.  As adults,  this is something that we have work hard to do.  We can’t beat ourselves up if things don’t go the right way, but we can only teach them what we know is right.  As a blogger, we can not tell or direct anyone to do anything, we can only inspire or influence others in what we are relaying…our message.  And in this process, our message must be clear.

In the twenty-three days of Healthy Lifestyle Vocabulary, the message is to imbue the readers with vocabulary that they can use to enhance their lifestyle.  Each post is created to give insight of how you interact with others and more importantly how you want to grow.

imbue v.

1.  to inspire or influence; to saturate

Synonyms:  instill; pervade

With today’s vocabulary word, I have two questions.  I am asking at you challenge yourself and answer the question that is most appropriate to you in the comment area below:

  1. As an entrepreneur, you imbue your clients to become greater and more significant to their audiences.  How do you do this?
  2. If you are a hard-working person, how do you imbue your work ethics to your children, co-workers, or church members?

Before you answer the questions, read this:

In 2007, there was a group of 20 people who began an author tour to share their books at a conference.  This book tour group did small events after the conference, but what the representative wanted to do was to help others become noticed for their self-publishing work.  Over time, the group’s circle had a fall in participants, because some of these authors realized that touring is a job within itself.  As the leader of the group continued with the tours, she realized in order to imbue the authors that there needed to be a change.  The change was radical.  The change was something that would take initiative and others would have to realize that this was not the place or time to begrudge anyone’s work.  As the years continued the group began to grow and grow and grow.  This was very exciting for many of the authors, and within those who first began with her have grown tremendously; her word and work began to saturate the author network.  In the mist of this, others within the group grew exponentially and started to help others do the same. (True experience!)

As you answer the question, your ultimate focus is to understand how you imbue others in your walk of faith.  I encourage you to share your thoughts!

  1. Great post – thank you, Jewel. As a Business Mentor & Internet Marketing Coach I am aware that I need to instill, embue, the importance of the right consistent actions so that my clients can get more new clients – Hope to see you over at my own blog – Big smiles, 🙂

  2. This is truly a beautiful message today as we all have something to give to the world with our individual gifts.

    I have dedicated my life to helping individuals around the globe achieve optimal health and well-being as a better way of life.

    Through my own personal life experiences be it; heartaches, failures, set backs, losses, achievements, joy’s, triumphs – you name it, I have come to understand and embrace the fact that the power to create your best self lies within our everyday choices and our everyday thoughts and perceptions. I have also come to the realization that we are shaped by what we believe.

    All that we become is a product of what we think and the greatest work that each of us can undertake each day is our own inner work and self-development by detecting our largest values and then defining how we wish to conduct our life by the choices we make in the light of love, faith, hope and well being.

    Healthy blessings,

    • Gena…you are touching many lives with your words of wisdom and healthy choices. It is inspiring to read your reflection of how you imbue your wisdom in your business and it is from being transparent and authentic yourself. Blessings!

  3. You’ve really challenged me to think about my influence on others.

    • Tami…I am glad that this post imbued your spirit to consider how you are influencing others. May your reflection bring to light many ways to challenge and grow for self and help others.
