This page is made with the intention of spreading inspiration through public figures we find profoundly inspiring.
I sincerely hope that anyone who reads this will benefit from having been introduced to these people and these ideas.
If you have people you'd like to share with me, please do so below.
Simon Sinek is an insanely inspiring person. He's been instrumental in expanding my knowledge concerning business, leadership, optimism, and showing the benefits of starting with why. His podcast "A Bit of Optimism" started during the pandemic and is intellectually satisfying as well as spiritually. In addition, I highly recommend his books. "Leaders Eat Last" is especially meaningful and inspiring for me.
Gary Vaynerchuk takes the most hands on approach to motivating people imaginable. He makes tons and tons of content (most done by himself), he replies to your tweets/comments, he takes your calls, and the guy even sends out texts to you. This isn't his people making texts or all his posts for him (I'm sure it happens but I believe he said it's all his ideas and he approves everything). He writes his texts and sends you videos. I actually got a MFin happy birthday from this dude over text that was actually a video of him on a freakin plane. He was super groggy and tired but took the time to send it. I'm guessing he sent that to everyone with a birthday on that day, but after seeing what he's done... Maybe not. Either way, the commitment is real. He's much more abrupt, than others in his area but that's better for a lot of people.
Speaking of abruptness... Fair warning: he cusses. It's not just for the sake of being dirty but some would say that's all cussing is so this is your warning.
Anyway, he's got all the stuff: books, podcasts, youtube series, shoes, wine, NFTs a media company... I mean, the guy's "Get Sh** Done" meter would blow the roof off of Fort Knox.
I know we feel politics almost always divide us so I'd like to not actually get "political". I'd like to stick to talking about how this woman makes her decisions and not necessarily what they are.
I have a core belief that we need more of this type of person everywhere, but especially in politics. She looks to be consistently unifying and serving in opposition to what would be easiest or even best for just herself. In my view, she's not only putting partisanship aside but tribalism as well. Now, I don't know her personally (as with the others on this page), but I am nonetheless convinced of who she is. Watching what she says and how she says it, along with her actions makes me confident she is who she looks to be. By focusing on unity and leadership as service, we get things done more effectively and harmoniously. When we challenge ourselves to be compassionate for people even ( and especially) when we disagree, we find our best selves and inspire others to do the same.
When it comes to promoting togetherness, compassion, prosperity, productivity, and efficiency I can't think of many in the same realm and none in politics currently. I've been desperate to find people who I can believe in, support, and derive hope from on these grounds, and she is one of few I've found. My hope is that anyone who is reading might be able to benefit similarly.
