With out a doubt, Ron Paul. Even though not directly, his writing on the Federal Reserve sent me to Bitcoin.
Who inspires you?
All the HODLers out there, they keep my going in crypto!
the person who has the biggest inspiration on me is my loving wife. she showed strength were most would quit. she had 2 kids and put her self through school to make a better life for her and her kids before i was there. she puts everyone before her self. she is a nurse who has the biggest hart. and no mater what bad decision I’ve made she always belied i could do more. more recently i decided to try to open my custom shop. and she has been saying about time lol. just having one person in my corner is all the inspiration i needed to see my dream was a step away from reality. so just remember that being in someones corner might just get them to be great and do even more for others.
A few people come to mind. from my personal life i look up to a mentor of mine here in indonesia named albert taylor. he has a repore with people and the ocean that is contagious. i look up to authors like Graham Hancock Who have reject the norm and really think outside the box and devote themselves to their ideals. maybe there is more to what we are told and how we are trained to think? the doge lord has inspired me to start this program and take a deeper look into myself and my lifestyle and my daily choices. whew here we go. Strong hands! dogecoin!
People that inspire me (that are currently alive) That I see as role models. These folks lead by example with dedication and passion. They are always trying to learn more and try to keep an open mind. They are successful but more importantly give back to society.
Neil Degrasse Tyson
Tony Robbins, his mindset of “Success is not how much money you have, but how many people are better off because you lived.”
Michael Corleone from the GF2 “Nothings impossible”
My biggest inspiration is my dad who came from nothing and build a successful business which allowed my family to live the life I live.
The characteristics of successful people who I hope to emulate are:
- The ability to communicate precisely and concisely.
- Strong-willed. Certain people have an ability to visualize their future and make that the reality.
- The ability to learn from failure and turn adversity into something greater.
- Treat other people with compassion and empathy.
My family inspires me, their love, goodness, experience and their fighting ability.
You, guys, Peter and John, because I learn very much with you, and many others like Andreas M. Antonoupolus, Jameson Lopp, Charlie Shrem or Max Keiser, but there are many more and all open source developers . Inspires me cause you have the wisdom, the knowledges and the ability to explain it to all types of audiences.
I think all of that is the most inspires me, nowadays.
PD: Sorry for my english, my level is student, I don’t know how many kicks did I give to the dictionary
I’ve taken a little from so many people. I don’t really have someone in particular that I am describing. I like to take the best from every person I meet, every book I read, and every circumstance I am put in.
I have found that many of the people I look up to have some similar traits.
Consistency seems to be key. Wether going to the gym every morning to having dinner with family every night. They stay focused on what they are pursuing. They remind themselves everyday why they are doing what they are doing and create tasks daily to achieve their goals. They take part in a support group that helps keep them accountable. This can mean a couple of friends they speak with regularly, or a big community such as The Bitcoin Pub. They are always looking to improve themselves. They never want to settle for mediocrity and strive for better everyday. They keep moving forward, even when they are burned out and wanting to quit, they push through.
These are some of the traits I am working to emulate in my everyday life.
I’m inspired by Knawledge every day.
Elon Musk,Bill Gates,Steve Jobs loving their style of grinding and keep pusching forward as you they said they were discipline but i can say also that they already know that they can succed so they felt in that away before achieved their goals
Well recently a couple people inspire me Donald Trump & Tigers Woods
I love the way Trump speaks his mind directly from his heart not from some script.
He says & does what he thinks is best for the country, He does not act like he is perfect or he always knows the best ways, but humbly brings all people into the conversation…
Since I’ve already written on Trump in my first Day 4 video & now that I’m going threw with a partner I will also at Tiger Woods to the most recent person who inspires me…
Tiger is a good example of perseverance ,determination,discipline. After suffering a devastating blow to his reputation having all his personal sexual affairs exposed & going threw 4 back surgeries then getting addicted to pain pills. Its one thing to have harms done to you but its way more embarrassing ,deflating to be the one who caused most of the problems in your own life. Either way We are all personally responsible for our own lifes & someone who has hit bottom the at age 42 comes back to greatness little by little is very inspiring.
I love how he talks about gradually getting better & better step by step or week by week. There is no such thing as idol time your either moving forward or backwards in life & I want to continue to move forward.
Stephen Hawking has inspired me for quite a while, and it saddens me that he recently passed away. Stephen Hawking was a theoretical physicist, author, and cosmologist. The inspiration comes from his physical abilities, which were none existing. However, his mind was very much alive. So we don’t have an excuse for being ignorant, do we?
America inspires me!
Although we have our flaws, at the end of the day, we stand tall and proud. We’ve had great leaders, heroes and adventurers to make this country great.
I wake up thinking, any one of us has the chance to become great and make an impact.
Lastly, my momma spires me as well. She raised me all by herself, provided everything I needed and continues to plow through life all while still supporting me through all my endeavors! <3
My aunt’s boyfriend recently retired in his mid 40s. Being frugal was a big part of that- so that means he was willing to consciously move against what most people his age were doing in order to build a nest egg. Now he’s retired, it’s pretty inspiring.
I find myself very inspired by guys like Tim Ferriss as well, his ability to excel in many different fields is really remarkable- but he also does it from a teacher’s perspective and looks to share things he’s learning.
One thing I’ve also noticed among people we count as successful- often times they are in peak physical health. It suggests that we should all be looking to find ways to prioritize our time for exercise and our time for personal health.
great word of wisdom thank you for sharing
My father has always been someone who truly inspires me. He is a true servant leader who has a tremendous work ethic. I have watched my dad step down from nice corporate jobs during layoffs to protect the jobs of the people who worked under him. My dad served as a Marine officer for 20 years and has dedicated his life to serving others. I went into the Marine Corps mainly because I watched how my father served and I attributed his character to him being a Marine. My dad is no perfect man but taught me how to love people well, even when they didn’t deserve it.
I have honestly been recently inspired by Peter Saddington because of the crypto craze. I jumped in with both feet to find out what was going on and found The Pub. I am all in on the future of crypto as both a financial investment but also the future of blockchain and how it is changing the world. My only regret is that I never learned a coding language…but I have been inspired by Peter to give it a try and shoot for the moon!
Those two men helped me learn to take responsibility more serious and that growing up leads to more freedom than staying in your little safe space.
I would like to add Nassim Taleb who is a brilliant observer of economics,finance,philosophy and life in general. His books are a rich resource for heuristics and critical thinking. One concept of his is antifragility. What do you guys think, is crypto antifragile?
Never really thought about it. I don’t think there is anyone in particular. I’d have to say anyone who enjoys life, is passionate and continually learns without bringing anyone else around them down.
My brother first told me about Ripple last Christmas. He definitely inspired me to check it out and that was the little snowball that has now rolled into a much bigger snowball and on and on we go. You Peter are another inspiration. Love all your vids and resources. Crypto is here to stay.
