If you are in need of some new role models .. if you are craving a real story with a lot of heart and meaning, these seriously inspiring people will remind you that anything is possible in this crazy beautiful life! A role model to me is someone who is chasing their own dream relentlessly, whilst also changing the world around them in a hugely positive way. It is often the case that these role models are quietly humble, crazy passionate and driven by much more than financial gain. I honestly believe that the more you give, the more you receive .. and if you look closely at these types of people, it is precisely this that underpins their success in all area of life.
I recommend putting a little time aside on your own, with a notebook and pen to wander through and capture some of the amazing quotes and learnings that you will find in each of the stories behind these amazing humans:
Lisa Messenger: Lisa is an advocate for shaking things up in life, finding what really lights you up and creating a life that you love! The Collective magazine is by far my favourite source of inspiration, as are Lisa’s recent books and pretty much everything that she does!
Daniel and Justine Flynn: I am in awe of the world changing social enterprise that this husband and wife have built, the Thank You movement. I always buy their hand wash for the bathroom, and if I ever need bottled water it is always theirs that I choose to purchase. It is amazing knowing that your everyday purchases are making such a huge difference where it is most needed.
Sarah Rosberg: Sarah is one of the most humble, kind and giving person I have connected with online. Sarah works tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for the Kenyan safe house Rafiki Mwema. This remarkable place cares for young girls who have been sexually abused, it is a heartbreaking necessity.
Jill Conley: Jill is simply an extraordinary soul, who whilst living with advanced breast cancer is also supporting others through her charity Jill’s Wish. If you have not seen this video, do yourself a beautiful favour and it will change you for the better.
Jono Fisher: The Wake Up Project is all about mindful living, leadership and abundant kindness. Wake Up is a truly magical community started by Jono, and his kindness cards are famous globally! Grab yourself a set for free here.
Melissa Ambrosini: Melissa is one of my favourite humans, I am yet to meet her in person however I know that it will be just as beautiful as it is knowing her and being inspired by her online. The commitment that Melissa has to sharing her own healing, wellbeing and spiritual goodness is truly generous and selfless.
Lori Deschene: Lori created Tiny Buddha, one of the most popular self help blogs and now thriving online community changing many, many lives. Lori regards this space as sacred, and I have been lucky enough to guest post for Lori here, which was a highlight of my life!
Sacha Grierson: Sacha is a fellow single Mamma, who I discovered through the beautiful Grace Tales blog. Sacha and her daughter run a bakery called Eat My Words, which gives back abundantly to the HIV/AIDS cause. What an amazing role model!
