Who is your inspiration?

31 replies
If you had to name one person to be your inspiration, who would it be?

My inspiration would have to be this girl I met in 11th grade, she was and has always been the most amazing person in my life. Out of everyone out there, she's the one person who has really been there for me and pushed me to become a better person. Without her, I wouldn't feel whole.

I can only hope that each and every one of you have someone like this girl. And if you don't, don't worry, that person will come into your life, it's all in time. I was lucky to have found my inspiration years ago. Some are lucky to have found theirs on the day they are born and some are just in limbo right now, but that doesn't mean that your inspiration isn't out there, you have to take this time to try and find that inspiration, heck if anything, make the time finding your inspiration, your inspiration to succeed

Now it's your turn.

    I actually don't have anyone specific who inspires me at the moment. Rather, I am working to be the best I can when the right people come into my life.

      My girlfriend.

      We both really want to take our relationship to the next level and feel it's there, but currently I'm in a position where I regularly need to at work until 4-4:30 AM.

      Working hard to leave my job soon and be able to go to bed TOGETHER in our bed every night. Gonna be awesome. Plus, it's easy for me to get into trouble where I'm at, so being able to work from home will be an amazingly welcome change for personal growth.

        Just remember, when you do get out of that situation, don't allow this business to eat away at you.

        I was once in the same boat, working for UPS overnight, 9pm to 11am, and had 2 other jobs, was never home and when I was, I was asleep.

        Now I work from home, but I had some struggles until recently, it's a great journey making money online, but never let the money get ahead of your relationship.

    Good advice for people who haven't yet met that special person is to write down
    everything you want that person to be. So everything that you can think of, physical
    appearance, character, what she likes, what she doesn't like, how she behaves etc.
    All the things you can think of. That way you will know what to actually look for in the
    girl (or guy), and, as Justin said, that person will come into your life.

    If you don't know what you are looking for how are you going to find it?

    It also doesn't have to be a specific person, female, or anything of that nature.

    Your inspiration could actually be a group of people.

    I'd say a second inspiration for the reason I want to be successful is to help those in need.

    Mine are my kids of course! Can't really think of better inspiration than that. I suppose my husband is also an inspiration, but at this point, his role is more all about motivation (i.e. kicking me in the butt when needed... lol).

    I would also be lying if I didn't include others like my parents -- I want to help my dad retire as he is far too old to be working as much as he does and both of my parents have always been a great inspiration to me on so many levels. And then of course, the ocean - one day I plan to own a place where the seagulls flock and the ocean waves crash right outside my window.

      Ya know, you're one of my other inspirations at pushing forward.

      You've really proven yourself in this industry and I love seeing where you go with everything that you do. To be a stay at home mom and still want to build a business is a huge thing.

      You rock Elizabeth and never give up on your dreams, you have what it takes to succeed in so many ways.

    I find W Mitchell's story very inspiring indeed.

    I mean this guy is burned over 65% of his body, then later survives a plane crash only to become paralyzed from the waist down and still manages to live a fulfilling life, motivate others and generate personal wealth.

    My mother is my inspiration.

    Through example, my mother has taught me the importance of truly caring about others. Many people often go through life, communicating in a way that is just waiting for others to stop talking, so that they can continue talking about themselves. My mother is someone who truly listens to people, genuinely cares, and takes a sincere interest in other people. I now make it a personal goal each day to truly take an interest in helping others and really listening to them. I can't think of too many other things that are more important than truly listening to people, genuinely understanding where they are coming from, and sincerely caring about the people in our lives. My mother is my inspiration because she has taught me this invaluable life lesson, not through preaching, but through living this way herself.

    I would have to say my husband, just like you have this girl from the 11th grade. I met my husband when we were 16 and have been married for 27 years now. He believes in me when no one else does, loves me eternity, and still makes me laugh after all these years.

    Tough question.... it took a while to answer. I don't think a physical person inspires me. What inspires me is the person I hope to become when all my goals (the main ones) manifest. That inspires me on a ridiculous level.

    For many years I liked Tony Robbins, but yesterday I watch this show with my 2 year old and now this guy is my inspiration.
    Always happy, pretty cool lifestyle, healthy diet, and has his own TV Show... (plus he didn't sell me a WSO after the end of the show, so that was refreshing)
