Finding inspiration can be tough especially when you are an outlier. Living a lifestyle of fitness and freedom is not something that most people do. Where do you find inspiration? How do you stay motivated in your passion? The famous quote by Zig Ziglar, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” sums up one of the biggest keys to success. Finding a tribe you can surround yourself with can inspire you to push beyond your difficulties and truly find your inspiration. One person I find super inspiring is Tim Ferriss.
Tim is an amazing guy and if you don’t know about him already you really should. He has authored multiple books and is constantly experimenting with ways to live better in the way he wants. He has traveled all over the world and developed world class skills in anything from horseback archery to cooking. The way he goes through life is really an inspiration for me. Tim is never satisfied with just being good at something; he always works to be an expert in the most efficient way possible. I really like this approach because I think doing something efficiently is important and becoming world class sets you apart from others.
Inspiration and Passion from Independence
I also love Tim’s independence. He took a long time in his life to just travel and learn about himself. He also takes “mini retirements” for a few months where he will just go and travel. This is so important because traveling and living an independent lifestyle can teach you so much about yourself. I hold traveling and fitness as key objectives in life. Tim shows how to do them both in the right way. I am inspired by his actions and words every day.
If I could meet Tim in person there would be so many questions I would want to ask. If I had to ask one it would be how he maintains his fitness and nutrition on the road. This is something I struggle with and Tim is clearly very good at it. Reading all of Tim’s content and listening to his podcast has inspired me to take a different look at my life. It is so important to follow someone like Tim that inspires you so you can live the life you want to live. Surrounding yourself by like-minded people brings passion and drive to your life. Please let me know if I can help bring passion and inspiration into your life or if you have anyone you idolize.
