Hi Guys,

Just wondered who people look up to, who give them strength when they are down. Ill start off.

The person I really look up to is Lewis Hamilton because of the way he always seems to put up a fight even when things go wrong, facing the public about the cheating @ the start of the season etc etc. I think if he saw me at the moment he would tell me to push on and keep pushing until where I want to be.

but i also really like neville brody.

just because he didnt give two ****s what other people thought.

he'd just take the criticism, and carry on doing what he was doing.

look where he is now!

I don't look up to anyone as that by definition means they're looking down on me which is to me disrespectful.

I don't see people as inspiration/motivation, part of my beliefs (my 3 'spirit' guides - yes I'm being serious) covers that aspect of my life :)

Sorry I couldn't help but laugh then, and not because you said Steve Jobs just the fact that I knew it was coming as soon as I'd seen the thread :D

Great video/speech seen that one a few times now. Tim have you read iCon? a biography about Steve Jobs, when I first noticed the title I thought there was going to be a message about prices at Apple! It's actually a very good read, all about Steve and his business inspiration.

I'm not sure if I personally agree with that definition Levi, I 'look upto' many people, but that doesn't make them better than me, I just gain inspiration and insight from their knowledge and experience.
