Sounds like you have an amazing wife my man! Synergy is a beautiful thing, especially when two loved ones bounce of one another and reinforce the good they do
People Who Have Inspired Me
- My dad because he created a successful business out of a dream and showed me that Hard work pays off.
- My mother because no matter what got in her way during her life, she always came out of top. Never give up in yourself.
- Orphan - found a happy family and came in 2nd in Miss W Virginia pageant
- Lack of education opportunity - put herself through nursing school at the community college
- Divorced with 2 children - always worked, in some cases two or more jobs, to make our life normal.
- My wife because she is a dedicated supporter of mine. Without her support I could never do what I do each day. Give to others and they will provide for you. That will give you the energy to give more.
- My children because they have shown me how to be a kid again. Never grow up!
- My 5th grade Geometry Teacher because she gave me a D, despite having a 98% average on tests. I never did my homework. She taught me Don’t take shortcuts and even if it is easy, do the work. It will be it even easier.
- My many mentors throughout the years. Believe in your capabilities and never stop learning!
My new crypto mentors! It doesn’t necessarily matter how you play the game, but just play it consistently and over time it will pay off! Focus on the end goal, not the day to day rumbles!
Thanks for taking the time to write man!
Such great inspiration!
Those wives tho. They make us better do they not?
Indeed they do. Without mine, I would be lost…oh yea…also hungry, bad clothes, dirty dishes, eating bad, etc. She is my ROCK!
I can’t say that any one person has inspired me. I’ve been able to find inspiration in many people, some more than others but no matter their success or whether they are friend, family or stranger, it always comes down to certain behaviors that inspire me. Things like discipline, determination, passion, kindness, empathy, patience, dedication and compassion. Some examples would be @peter’s discipline with uploading a B90X video daily, @Angela’s kindness throughout the Pub, the @moderators passion for the Pub community, my mother’s dedication to her 3 boys, my brother’s determination to advance his scuba diving career and so on. Seeing these quality behaviors in others reminds me that we as humans are capable of achieving amazing things, no matter how big or small… and that is what inspires me to keep self improving, keep working hard, keep moving forward and to not give up.
Boom. Great stuff! Let’s keep pushing to the moon!!!
I want to tattoo this on the inside of my eyeballs.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is probably my favorite book of all time. Treasure is found within, and I believe that love is the most important thing in life…to love oneself so that we are capable of giving that love to others.
Well said! There are people that have done great things and are inspiring ( @peter I’m looking at you!) , but in the end we are each responsible for our own success!
Oh I so love that book as well.
Sending the LOVE backatcha
My first boss Iain Rangeley at Grey Matter.
We used to sell more Microsoft Software than Microsoft UK. Around 1991.
We ended up with the smallest direct supply contract in the World and got product by pallets direct from Ireland. 1998
While there I introduced commercial Linux software into the UK in 1997
He made me unemployable.
I could work when I wanted, come and go when I wanted. Monthly profit share. Monthly increment of my salary.
He sold the company, I knew it wasn’t going to stay the same. So I knew that was my time.
Hedflux - A dance music producer that decided to take his production extremely seriously. From the position of working astrophysicist and unknown bedroom producer he made it to the big leagues within four years. Last year he moved his whole family to South America and is living his dream. I don’t care to play festivals, but he does inspire me to become a better producer and developer and to work towards my dreams.
His life view vibrates my groove molecules.
My mother inspires me - she moved over from the Philippines to Australia, no money, no job, no english & was able to create a life for herself from nothing.
Elon musk - his creativity is something else & willingness not to fail.
My first pastor, Bill Hybels, says that it is the leaders job to stay fresh and inspired.
Dallas Willard is tops.
Edward Santana Grace - Take responsibility, grow and give hope.
Jordan B Peterson - Take responsibility. Tell the truth (always). Be willing to sacrifice that which isn’t useful.
Sungshim Park Loppnow - Live life fully. Be diligent in all you do. Talk to Jesus about everything and actually LISTEN he guides us into love and freedom.
Jesus, I believe that he is the smartest person alive.
Ok, thats enough for now.
My inspirational person is someone I know. I’m not even sure if he knows… But here’s why. He goes non stop on his passion. I honestly don’t know how he finds the time for all his projects. He is incredibly driven. When I met my friend I had no idea what he did, he was just a friend of a friend - the nicest person with the kindest heart. He will help anyone. His answer is always YES (I’m a big fan of the YES) and has a high five for everyone. And then I heard his art. Chris is a musician and producer with his own label and successful talent and professor and touring DJ - recently adding video into the mix. I think he is an amazing talent. Over the past few years I’ve watched him expand his art and efforts in amazing ways. Whenever I need a pick me up I throw on one of his mixes and not only get energized from music - but also my friend behind the music who just gets shit done. I guess what I’ve learned from Chris is to surround yourself with people who are accomplishing similar goals and just keep at it no matter what. Oh and be nice while doing it. So thanks go out to Left/Right for keeping me enthused and inspired. #timetravelisreal
I LOVE “vibrates my groove molecules” I may have to use that one!
I missed posting this yesterday (But I totally still did my part to learn and study up on the Crypto market), but who inspires me? Hmm… It’s a tough one to answer without context. I’m a software developer, and I have a guy who is over me who is 24 years old and is one of the brightest guys I know. He’s self-taught, like myself, and there are a lot of things about him that makes me want to be a better developer. I’m not bad, by any means, but his level of knowledge and intellect in the subject matter is so far above my own that it’s easy to be enamored by him.
If I can take that passion and inspiration and use it here, in the Crypto market, I feel like I’ll be able to provide for the people I care for in the long run.
I’m inspired by my parents, my wife and daughters and friends. I’ve also been inspired the last few years by Tim Ferriss. The principles of lifestyle design shared in “The 4 Hour Workweek” caused me to reassess my entire approach to work and make significant changes that led to less hours at the office, a better relationship with my wife and kids and more joy overall. I’ve implemented principles from the “The 4 Hour Body” since June that have allowed me to lose 15 pounds and feel healthier than I have in the last 20 years. I’ve listened to almost every episode of his podcast and it’s exposed me to ideas and led me to take actions I never would have considered. I’m committed to constantly learning and growing from a variety of sources, now The Bitcoin Pub has risen to the top of my list!
There are many people, that have inspiring me. Known People like Elon Musk, Tim Ferriss, Gary Vaynerchuck, Casey Neistat, Richard Branson and @peter of course.
People around me, like a 75 year old friend running now a little company at his age. My wife.
But there are two guys that I’ve learnd so much and with their help I developed myself.
1. Raymond Hull
He wrote the book “How to get what you want” (1969). So inspiring. It was my start to get a better life more than 15 years ago.
2. Christian Bischoff
He’s a german motivational speaker. Heard so many of these “gurus”. He’s the one I stuck with. His mantra is "you don’t know where your limit is, you only know where it’s not"
And one of my favorite “one hit every day with an ax in the same spot cuts down the biggest tree”
