Who is that person that inspired you the most?

Recommended Posts

On a lighter note now: Who would you consider a mentor? A man or woman? Your girl? Close friend? Dad? A public figure prominently making moves today? Sports figure? Public figures in emtertainment and around the world? Teacher?

Never really liked the word mentor; it suggests to me that the person being influenced is some sort of charity case or something....

 

Inspiration is a better word - but to be frank, I don't look up to people....

What I will say is that my uncle taught me how to be a man when I was young.....

 

Athletes & Entertainers, hell nah... If they don't wanna be seen as role models, t'hell with 'em as far as that goes.....

(I never forgot that

back in the day)

As a sports nut in bit of a suprise i never idolized or worshipped anyone. Like all of us, sports stars are human and screw up like the rest of us.

 

Thus the only person (other than God-It's my thread you dont have to agree lol)i worship is my mom. The others are my late Dad and older sister. That it. Maybe if i get a wife in near future it will change lol.
