When it comes to Grammy nominees, movie box office sales, S&P numbers, and CEO rankings, there’s no end to the amount of lists that can materialize in the media. But, what if you’re looking for a list that compiles people who are the most inspiring? That can take some work.
Luckily, the folks at Beliefnet.com have taken the hassle out of such an endeavor.
According to their website, Beliefnet.com works, “to help people like you find, and walk, a spiritual path that will bring comfort, hope, clarity, strength, and happiness.”
The site recently compiled a list of nominees for their most inspiring person award. The list is pretty stacked with some extraordinary individuals whose heart and character make them stand-out stars of service and dedication.
Included on their list are Katie Davis, the 20-something woman who went to Uganda as a teen and found her calling; Jordan Cullbreath, a stellar athlete whose personal experiences can teach one how to overcome some of life’s most pressing obstacles when the odds are stacked against you; and Brryan Jackson, a young man whose amazing story will make you think twice before complaining about the challenges in your own life. Many of the nominees credit their faith as being one of the hallmarks of their inspirational stories.
Each one of these individuals has a unique story to share, along with the ability to encourage and inspire. As you look to start off the new year off empowered, be sure to take a look at the list and learn about those who can truly inspire you in 2012 to even greater heights.
