A Work In Progress
"When you were a kid it was easy. You were not afraid to try... to dare" (Link) >>
I've come to realize that there are two main types of people. Those who are in constant pursuit of inspiration, and those who inspire. Granted, there is always some sort of balance between the two but in general there are only two kinds. As much as I would like to be the latter, in this instance, I am the former and I'm completely ok with it. I believe that one must be open to inspiration in order to live a life that inspires.
I know that there are amazingly talented people around us. Some are known well by their peers and others, whether it be modesty or some other phenomenon, are relatively unknown. Regardless, I've come to realize that these people are inspiring because they haven't given up on two of the most important aspects of living a happy life. Lifelong Trying and Daring. Most of them don't realize that they've managed to maintain the child-like mindset of untamed ambition, the ability to suppress embarrassment when learning something new and the skill of channeling that into motivation.
Below are a few athletes that I see to be very inspiring. They are passionate about their sport and find genuine joy doing what they love. This project will eventually also include an action shot and a mini-bio and hopefully someone reading or looking will let themselves be inspired.
