Tribe: a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognised leader
Day 6: Find 1 or 2 people who inspire you and say why you find them inspiring and the one question you would ask them if you met in real life.
I know it may sound a bit weird and irrelevant but my New Year’s resolution for the last couple of years was these five words “just take it and make it”. In my head it sounds like just take this year and make it the best year you can.
Why am I saying all these? Because the people who inspire me are those who just take whatever happens to them and make the best out of it. I love listening to stories where people just changed their lives by following their gut feeling, that they took their failures and turned them into successes, people who took a deep breath and said yes to that opportunity.
Thirty of these people are part of this 30DaysOfGenius series that I mentioned in a previous post (here). And, to be honest, I would choose any of these people as my mentor any day. And, in a kind of weird way they are, right? Just by listening to them.
Today though I will choose Elle Luna, because I love how she followed her dream, because her book ‘The crossroads of should and must’ is a little gem worth reading any time, and because from the moment she said Joseph Campbell’s words “Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be” something shifted inside me.
The second person I would like to mention is MrToledano. Phil Toledano is a conceptual artist and it was one of the guest speakers at the workshop I attended. I found his work beautiful, vulnerable, extraordinary, emotional, scary, crazy, funny and real. Qualities that I would like any of my work to have. Also, I think he is also one of those people who just took the things that happened to him and made the best out of them.
And these are two of the people I would like to have in my tribe.
What would I ask them?
1. Where do you get inspiration from and how do you generate new ideas for your projects?
2. What advice would you give You when you started?
Feel free to share and comment.
