Many people inspire me.
friends, family, athletes, teachers,
different traits - leadership, experts in their perspective field, conviction to stay the course, weather the bad times, inspire others, they educate, hardworking and they not afraid to get in the trenches with everyone else
All have achieved excellence in some form whether awards, personal growth happy with what they do, $, reward of passing on the baton to the next person paying it forward.
For me- personally staying focused and moving on task would be greatest obstacle for me. So seeing the measure of focus and dedication to achieve what they have is what i need to follow suit with.
Many people inspire me.
First one would be my father he was very hard working and got me involved into what ever he was doing at an early age he used to take me to work every now and then or help fix the car stuff like that as a kid and i loved it and i always wanted to be like him.
Second is Steve Wozniak even though i don’t know him personally and only read his book iwoz he also reminded me a bit like my father hard working a bit of a joker and loves to teach and he really thinks outside the box and the black and white. Plus he gave us the PC!
Third is now you Peter you’re keeping me focus to be in this for the long haul and to have a better judgment on the crazyness that’s out there.
An uncle of mine who was born under a tin roof in Guatemala and near the end of his life received that country’s highest civilian honor, “La Orden del Quetzal”, and left a fortune behind for his children WITH a strong sense of family loyalty, which sometimes it’s hard to do both. He came to the point in his struggles where he determined to NEVER see poverty again and by sheer discipline and relationship-building grew from a “trucker” to bringing Hyundai & Korean steel imports, besides Peugeot and other large-name brands into the country. I learned from him that you do not need to be the smartest man in the room, and you can hire staff to fill in the knowledge-gaps you have… no one ever makes it alone. Peter, I see this community you’ve built with your family and friends into a knowledge powerhouse with similar-minded and similar-driven members. Thank you. Let the learning continue!
It is hard to name just one person that inspires me. I am inspired by people who work hard and are not afraid of failing. The person who gets knocked down but will consistently get back up . They admit to failures and mistakes and know when it is time to quit and move on to another idea or path that will lead to success.
Jim Carrey is one of my biggest inspirations. Everybody thinks he became mentally ill, but for me he is the one who sees it all clearly. I love his message from a long time ago: “You can fail in what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love”…
His emotional journey in life helps mine as well. I already failed lots of times and was emotionally drained. Everytime thoes emotions come up again, I remember what he said after his mental “breakdown”. That we are all just playing a role in life and that’s the part that can hurt you. The role playing is an ilusion, thus the emotions that come with that too. That makes it all a lot lighter for me.
For me, inspiration comes from my bosses at work. They both love what they do, and push constantly to be better at what they do. A couple of things I think I can learn from them:
- Don’t give up if something doesn’t work. Figure out why it doesn’t work and use that as a learning experience.
- If something isn’t broken, don’t fix it. I am so tempted all the time to try to make something “better” by changing it, but that (most of the time) isn’t the right thing to do. On the flip side, it is important to know when to move on when something isn’t working. Getting stuck in a rut of normality isn’t good either.
i must say not only a person inspires me, but this time ill make one person is visible to you.
Recently i met this person and we haven`t met in quite time, in the middle of conversation my brain pops and idea to make this person as my inspiration for this time, why not?
His name is TheJagat (not the real name) and he is a computer progammer, all i know is web development and apps development.
He is a funny guy, quite a legitimate logic thinking, consistent person, kind and fairplay, really up to a challange and conquer. In my opinion theres a lot i see in one person but i cannot show it all to you through a writings nor speaking, the fast connection i had couldn`t described in saying nor writings.
thanks for making this day by day B90X looks like a diary xP
Keep those close. They are good for the long term hodl
I am inspired by Mike Monday, a former dance music producer and DJ who is now coaching musicians. I am a music producer and performer, currently trying to turn my hobby (more like mission) into a profession. Mike has made a great life for himself by exploring new opportunities and constantly jumping into ‘the gap’, the unknown and often scary road we have to take towards our goals.
Mike is a great coach in many ways. Perhaps the most important thing that we can learn from him is his practical optimism: when I see obstacles he sees opportunities. When I am afraid to make a fool of myself, he reminds me that you can only learn by doing and making mistakes. No matter what the obstacle is, he sees an opportunity to do great things! My outlook on life is slowly changing for the better because of this.
Like a lot of folks in here, parents come to mind first. We’re all here learning from each other today thanks somewhat in part to our parents for setting the foundation of our lives.
In many ways, I draw inspiration from the disenfranchised. That sounds depressing lol, but I was heavily drawn into crypto for it’s liberating properties and ability to free individuals disenfranchised by the traditional monetary system. I know we’re all bitcoin faithful here, but I love how DASH is rapidly creating new opportunities for disenfranchised individuals in countries such as Venezuela. I got tired of simply sharing an article here or there with friends/family about my beliefs, and have realized their are so many opportunities with crypto to actually DO something to spread my beliefs. Much more powerful to DO, than to say.
My wife inspires me. I’ve done some crazy things in my life and she’s always believed in me. We’ve found much success in our lives and I’m determined to find success in the crypto space. She knows it will be a bumpy road and is ready to stand by me through the hard times.
