I have actually taken a few days to consider this. I have never really focused on or felt overly inspired by people in the sense of feeling “oh yeah” that is someone that I want to emulate. Honestly I have come to realize that I am a self centered fool for the most part. So in the past few days I identified a few people. First in my life right now I am inspired daily by my wife. She gets up every day and grinds it out. She faces things that she doesn’t feel confident head on and isn’t afraid to ask questions and get to the root of what she needs to know, I am more reserved and often lack the desire to question things out ahead of time. I figure that I can pick things up through out the process.
When she faces a set back she reviews the situation and develops a plan, I usually need prompting to plan. From my childhood I was inspired by my father he was a real hard worker and willing to do whatever he felt needed to be done to provide for his family, I try to do this.
From history there are many great thinkers and individuals that deserve admiration but right at this point in time I am most inspired by the founding fathers, say what you will, they came together and put forth a new concept that revolutionized the world many times over.
I believe that this best summarizes who I could say are my current inspirations. The underlying theme as to why I draw inspiration from them is family and helping raise up individuals that can help others while taking responsibility for their ideas and aspirations.
