How the Success of Others Inspires and Motivates

Research from John Hopkins Carey Business School shows that people can be inspired and motivated by the success of others. Ryan W. Quinn et.al. explored motivation trends based on other people’s exceptional success.
The researchers wanted to discover if the perceived exceptional success of others motivated people to learn and work harder on their own success.
The study revealed that if you perceive another person’s success to be exceptional, this can boost your motivation for your own goals, increase your curiosity about how they did it, and inspire you to learn more about how you can achieve something similar.
Inspiration awakens you to discover new possibilities about yourself. According to psychologists Todd M. Thrash and Andrew I. Elliot, inspiration involves being inspired by something or someone, and acting on this inspiration.
