It doesn't matter who inspires you, what matter is how does he/she inspire you. How do you let them inspire you in the right way. They should be like the fuel to push you forward. Whoever your icon is, make sure that they help you and make the best of him. It doesn't stop at an artist,. Your icon could be an ordinary good man who has got manners and has principles. It doesn't matter how famous he is. What matter is "what does he do" and "why does he inspire you"
For me, Queen really inspires me their words are like a field of gas that always feel my courage and optimism tank. Whenever I'm up or down, I always find in their words the description of the situation I am in. Happiness, sadness, depression and excitement. Actually they were legend.
Do you have that "someone" who really inspires you?!
