What Two People in Your Life Have Influenced You the Most?
We have had a few questions in relation to what things have influenced us and shaped us as we have grown up and there are always stand out people in our lives.
For me the top 2 have to be
- My Mum – she has taught me love, compassion, the fact its ok to ask for help when I’m struggling, to never give up even when things get really tough and live life to the fullest because nobody lives forever!
- My old Uni Lecturer – apart for helping me obtain my degree, he always took the time to talk about his life experiences – what he did, what went well, what didn’t, what he wished he’d done. He was a real teacher of life. The biggest lesson he taught me is to simply ask and try. If you don’t ask you’ll never get and if you don’t try you will never know if you can!
What 2 people(or more if you want), alive or dead have influenced you the most?
I have lot of people that influence me in my life but those who influenced me the most are my Mother and my Father. I did everything for me to be a good person ,well educated and graduated. Without their support I don’t believe if I could be a the place that I’m right now. My God bless them and give them long life.
My mother and my school teachers influenced me the most. One kind and loving teacher left a lasting impression on my life. Doing things the way she used to do them, gives me the satisfaction that I’m doing the right thing. Their legacy is alive and strong.
I would have to say my mother and father. Dad taught me a lot of things growing up from how to work with timber and how to do things in the garden.
Professionally, a couple of ex managers taught me so much as to how to deal with people and how to progress with my career. I owe these people a lot.
As I move into the next phase I am now on the lookout for some new inspiration to progress in the online world.
Actually, it is more than two people who has significant influence in my life. But I would say two of them with the most influence. First is my father, I regard Him as my teacher. He teach me a lot of things without even teach me directly. The second is my Ph.D. supervisor, the way he teaches me is similar to what my father did. He opens up my mind to new possibilities and way of thinking that are way bigger than my previous way of thinking. And he did this with a very minimum instruction. And I think that’s what makes him a great teacher.
my mother and father did a great job to influence me in my life.school fees they paid for me cannot be counted .
Fantastic responses as always – shows how important family is to everyone and how much we have to be thankful for having those people in our lives.
My mother was first and great teacher, whenever I went wrong, she beat me and showed me the right way, then, my father took on from where my mother left.
They’re my 2 greatest people oi my life.
I don’t know for those who didn’t see their parents or their parents died earlier, for most people the Mother and Father role in their life is great and unrewarded. They are the most influential people in their life.
My adopted Father and my girl friend who was my wife to be had played an important role in my life specially during my education and life difficulties .
I guess the more we think about it the more we realise how many people have influenced and shaped who we are today. We are thankful to all these people and the others to come in the future.
Hi Gareth White, I think your very right because the question is limits us to 2 people but sencerely speaking, when I look at my life journey, they are many.
Hi Jackso, yes when I asked the original question I said two people but as everyone’s answers have come in I to have realised how many people have been influential in my life. This is the great part about asking questions on the luckscout forum. You learn something new every day!!
My Pastor and my wife have really impacted my life so much. These 2 are wonderful people my life.
