In some odd ways we try to lead by example… what example exactly is another question!

Who inspires you?
Give us some context. Why do they inspire you? Who are they? What have they achieved?
But even more, WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THEM?
This might sound like a cliché but my greatest inspiration is my 아버지 which means Dad in Korean. To be honest, he is the wisest, unchangeable, 부지런에(diligent), hard working person that I know until this day.
He had to support his 2 younger sisters and my grandma since he was 6 years old because my grandpa had passed away the year before and when he turned 20, he left Korea to go to Chile with nothing but a suitcase and hopes to find a job to support his family.
The reason why he inspires me till this day is because since I can remember, he hasn’t changed his ways. He eats the same things, he still bargains for the littlest amounts and he dresses the same even though he can afford it. I’m not saying he dresses with rags or ripped cloth but one look at him and you would think that he works at any electronic store lol.
In reality though, he is pretty wealthy now. He owns couple of different real estate properties in Peru, NY, SF, Korea and other places. He also, has 2 other businesses that do pretty good.
He is the rags to riches story that we sometimes hear around. Started from the bottom, now he here. I also think because he is my dad, it impacts me even more. Its different when you watch a documentary about someone or when you hear it from someone else that knew that person. When you are right there to see it all happening, you really believe it and believe me, it motivates the fu*k out of you to be better because you want to be better, not the same. That’s why at the same time is a double edge sword because, the bigger the shadow, the harder it is to get out.
Finishing with the rant, I apologize, I think what I can learn from my dad is his ethics.
Something that he always used to tell me was that even if you are the best at something, that doesn’t mean you should stop trying and get comfortable. Once you are the best, others want to take your spot so that’s when the real battle begins. Never stop trying.
Also, 피터 you are my crypto inspiration!! before I found DCTV, I was investing blindly and wasn’t keeping track of anything. Thank you Sir!!
Hope everyone is having a great day!!
i gotta say peter has been a big inspiration to me and the crypto community in general always willing to teach and give back even tho the wealth and knowledge surpasses mine you all embrace newcomers and are eager for them to learn to be independent and successful in this space, it has shown me that i must enrich myself with knowledge and depart it on those willing to hear as this is for everyone and with dedication and determination i will inspire someone else on their journey
My late Dad is my inspiration.
He worked hard his whole life to make sure me, my brother did not do without anything. He sacrificed all his time and money to make sure we were taken care of. Having 2 children makes me appreciate all he did and I want to be that same role model for my family.
And of course Peter! How can he not inspire you with his energy!
No Dad around to inspire me so that job goes to one of the most charismatic people I have had the pleasure to meet & be associated with.
His name was Bill Shankly he was the manager of my beloved Liverpool Football Club.
The club were languishing in the Second division of English Football when Shanks came along in early 1960 & took us from obscurity to the become multiple champions of England & Europe.
He laid the foundations for LFC to become the most successful club in English football, but there was more to Shanks than that, he was a great man manager, a great motivator, he made people believe that they could achieve what they thought impossible.
Here is a bit more background for anyone who is interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Shankly
I have picked up that belief which is partly why I am here & I believe that I can achieve great things, by doing things the right way, the honest way & with hard work.
Hard work is the key to success & I am here to work as hard as I can.

Who inspires me is anyone who has what I want usually a characteristic or discipline. I’ve been listening to 17 Laws of Success by Napoleon Hill every week this year. Most of the content are stories of successful people during that time period. In all the stories millionaires would use their imagination by taking two or more old ideas and making a new one. Very big on the basic success principle of who do you listen to and it’s not journalists making success articles or billionaires that don’t read or write their own books.
Who inspires me are all the people out there that chase and live their dreams.
People that stay through to their self show perseverance and determination and follow through.
Peter you are an inspiration too and I am sure you will be successful with our endeavors even if I thought at the start what a crazy guy. You bring positivity and a lot of knowledge!
Yen.io and all your project make the Crypto world better.
Everybody else let’s follow through be determined to ride the Crypto Lifestyle and give us the financial independence that we deserve.
Perseverance, determination, daily schedules, habits.
Without a doubt, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is my favorite author. Not very actual i’ll give you that. Nevertheless, his words and his way to think is timeless. He gave me a vison to follow,
As a marathon runner and a pivate pilot i already have the dicipline and compatible “crypto lifestyle”.
FREE SECRET I CAN SHARE:
My most difficult challenge in flying, was landing the plane in crosswind and fighting the wind.
I realized i had to “erase my brain” and see the wind as my frien, not as my ennemy.
Use the wind to land, not fight against it.
- since then i make great landings in sny crosswind situation.
- inow have fun with it ! cool !
saw your tiny comment at datadash “long video” :0
Who inspires me? My dad, for his ability to let go and dissolve the obstacles we sometime place on ourselves. No matter life’s little travails, he continues to learn, love, and give -he’s truly resilient.
There are so many people who inspire me, but my wife is number one. She is supportive and kind about whatever venture I want to pursue, crypto and otherwise. She’s a successful engineer at a pharmaceutical company. We can learn that patiance and kindness always go further than their counterparts.
Stephen Covey also inspires me with his book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Everything I listen to it or read from it, it gives me perspective on an ideal I am constantly striving for: how to use my time in the most effective way. We can all learn to be more effective.
Some people that inspire me include Jai Dev Singh, Richard Branson, Tim Draper, Patti Smith, Pema Chodren, Arcane Bear, SIA and Peter Saddington.
All are creative, entrepreneurial, prolific, articulate, disciplined, pioneering, relentless. They articulate their craft with visionary purpose beyond the self-serving into an almost altruistic realm of revolution that serves the entire species.
They are highly motivated. Driven by a higher calling or purpose. Disciplined and consistent in their daily duties, practice and routine. They exhibit an inexhaustible lust for life and a positivity which is infectious and inspiring
Efficient and pointed in their action and time management. Articulate and inspiring in speech.
Perhaps they have overcome obstacles and challenges in life and continue to thrive and better themselves.
I am inspired by those that can share that lust for life, who put family at the fore, look after their physicality and finances, while elevating themselves to create and produce and inspire. Wholistically enhanced in every way.
I am awed at how all these things can be managed seemingly so effortlessly. This is what I strive for.
My wife also inspires me, as she’s up at 4:30am every morning doing yoga and getting our son ready for school. She is so grounded and commited and patient with my particular ways and mood swings
Whoa, is this guy for real? Radiates positive energy from my phone… Nice!
After watching day 4, I started thinking about the authors of self help books and programs who have made impact on me.
Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, Robert T Kyosaki, Carnegie and such started to open my eyes some ten years ago that my live is for me to design.
Besides that there have been a few ppl in sports which are really motivating, Jeff Cavaliere is just one of many who set solid examples for motivation. Every athlete has a positive influence for me. I guess it is because of the focus and relentlesslness towards their goals.
I am realizing that a lot of ppl in my life have had a positive impact on several big or small aspects of my way of handeling things or conceptualizing thing, situations or ppl in my life. Those are probably the best examples! The all day everyday down to earth kind of ppl who make great changes with relatively small acts, sometimes without even knowing it. Awesome!
In my personal life there have been few who inspire me. I’ve been blessed to have been surrounded by doubters FUDders and sarcastic finger pointers most of my life. Normally I have let it get to me emotionally and let it drag me down… Until last year when I said to myself NO MORE.
So, in my life I have had to be my own inspiration against it all!! And today, my inspiration is coming from the one and only Charles Hoskinson, who is following HIS own moral compass even when he no longer needs to earn $$ he left Etherium, which he co-founded, and now heads up Cardano ADA. He did this over morality issues and creative and development differences.
I have now also been inspired by Peter… Finding decentralized TV has been a real boost to my energy and determination within the crypto space!! Thanks guys!!
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.
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.
