Those who inspire others often inspire, not because they are perfect, but because they are NOT. They have struggled and OVERcome against insufferable odds, refusing to give up and stay down, living testimony to others that there IS hope. Their stories inspire because they are REAL people who lead real lives and yet manage to achieve “the impossible” when most would make excuses.

No life is “perfect”, but things do not have to be “perfect” to be happy, successful, or blessed, and sometimes the way we “deal” with life and the things it throws at us “make” the inspiration others “draw” from. Even when they do not know your story, whether you want them to or not, are aware of it or not, the impression one might get can be powerfully influencing.

If one were perfect there would be NO inspiration, for there would be nothing “worthy” to admire. But when one is IMperfect and has no fear in admitting weakness, there is strength in that vulnerability, the risk to “expose” to scrutiny, for there is courage in such risk and willingness to let others see that “battle” and people relate to REAL.
