As 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.
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:
- As an entrepreneur, you imbue your clients to become greater and more significant to their audiences. How do you do this?
- 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!
