Who famous has ever inspired you to do things that you knew you could but have not yet done them?

Famous athletes or composers. Possibly an artist that sells art work?

Same, I love how he talks and he's hilarious.

Aside from him, Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first prime minister who was often drunk in the Commons and while campaigning, yet got the job done and has earned his place onto the 10$ bill.

Travis Barker. I admire every aspect of his technically talented drumming. It's not the fastest in the world, but the rhythms and syncopations are top-notch.

call me cheesey, but mine is Bruce Lee. I find him very inspirational; he overcame diversity, won world championships in martial arts, brought about the craze of martial arts to America, wanted to share his love of philosophy and martials arts in a more artistical form than a violent act, graduated as a philosophy major at college, created a revolutionary form of martial arts that is/was highly successful, kept his body pure and free of drugs, booze, cigarettes etc., was truly a family man and wanted the best for his family, very outgoing, and his skills as a martial artist were beyond all compare; he was so fast the camera film speeds and shutter speeds couldn't keep up and it could get blurred so he had to slow down! His intellectualism was extraordinary but he still strived to communicate with everyone on all levels. He truly sets a pinnacle on what a person can strive to achieve.

Herman Li and Kerry King. They are two of the best guitarists I have ever heard. I had always wanted to play guitar and be in a band. I always wanted the glory, that feeling of power as you shred in front of thousands of screaming fans. Raining blood was the first heavy metal song I ever heard. It changed my life. Set me on the path I am on now, made me persue music. Once I saw dragonforce live, with Herman Li five feet away from me, knew I wanted to start. I have never had any musical talent, I feel that just makes it more of a challenge. they are my heros

Bear Grylls. He's inspired me to do a ton of crazy stuff thus far, and I seriously considered starting being a mountain climber. I only stopped when I realized that I AM AFRAID OF HEIGHTS.
