I am sure there are those that might often wonder what my inspirations are, well I have quite a few actually, most of them (aside from people in my family and friends) are actually celebrity’s in some sense,or how about we just say ‘famous.’
From the title of this post I am sure it is very obvious that I want to tell everyone today about those people in this life that inspire me the most, the people outside of my friends and family that have helped me to see even more that if it is wanted bad enough, if it is desired long enough, and if it is beneficial to, God, you and society, then whatever that is it can be made a reality, no matter how hard any kind of enemy may come against you, no matter what odds you are facing no matter how strong the opposition and no matter how small of a chance you actually have at becoming what it is that you want to be and doing what it is that you want to do, you can make it happen.
For the first Actor inspiration in my life, I am going to have to mention one of the most known people all across the world and to think that long ago he was just some boy, living in Oklahoma, with a rough childhood, no actual dad to be a dad, and had made many mistakes before making it to a point of great success.
- 1. Chuck Norris
Every since i was a little boy, I have always looked up to Chuck Norris and I always loved him in his most known act as Walker Texas Ranger, a show where good always would conquer evil, though there were some violent scenes (not according to me but to some people) the morals of the stories was always greater than any kind of negativity which could have ever been throw at the show or Chuck Norris himself, the Martial Arts displayed in the show and input into the show always showed a manner of great respect, dignity and character.
I love stories of how people make it against all odds and that is actually the title of one of his books which is actually an autobiography that I have read most of before and I loved seeing all the good and bad that Mr. Norris has faced in his lifetime, it is exactly what has made him the person he is today and though there are still some people that don’t like him one bit, that is just fine. He is still kicking high and doesn’t look a day over 45, isn’t that something, seeing him today is funny especially when compared to an episode of Walker TX Ranger from 20 years ago.
I had the privilege and the honor of meeting Mr. Norris awhile back, last year on October during a campaign for our current Governor ‘Greg Abbott’ who I also had the honor and privilege of meeting, Chuck Norris was as real as it can get, he was kind and caring and considerate, and even though his ‘body guards’ (whatever HE needs those for) was continuously rushing him to leave, he was taking his time with the people and after waiting in line forever I almost didn’t get to see him because the guards was wanting them to get on the plane, but he was still taking his time and making sure that everyone got a chance. When it came time for me to meet and greet Mr. Norris, I gave him one of my business cards to which he put in his pocket and handed me an autographed card of him doing a martial arts stance.
We told him how I had always watched him on TV and how he was also like a Father figure and how he had made such an impact on all of our lives, we told him of some of what I did, things were really rushed but somehow slow at the same time. He hugged me and told me to never give up, that I could make it and that maybe we would meet again, which reminds me of him being Cherokee, at the end of Walker Texas Ranger’s Series, they did not say goodbye, I believe it was said “Until we meet again.
I will always cherish that moment and maybe we will meet again.
My next two top ‘Christian ‘ inspirations in life has got to be…
- 2. Kirk Cameron
- 3. Ray Comfort
I decided to combine these two because they go together like so, when I was littler I would always watch Ray and Kirk Cameron on ‘The Way Of The Master’ since Ray Comfort is more of an evangelist, even more than Kirk, I will have to say, that Ray is my evangelistic inspiration while Kirk is actually an Actor inspiration as well, but from a very strong Christian point of view, back in 2011 before I had ever went to KD college some might remember how I had mentioned that I was praying and asking God if acting was his will for me, more or less I was actually praying if KD was his will for me, I was watching Kirk on youtube explain how Hollywood can devour people, young Christians that only want to get famous.
I remember this key note from his speech, what he said was very encouraging, because he said if you just wanted to get into acting to be famous then he was pleading with you to stay out of the business, because people that want fame will sell out quickly, but if you went in there fearing no one but God, then you could make, as he said that I remember so clearly hearing the mail run, it turns out it was a KD information package that I had previously requested but I also remember not filling everything in correctly, so it’s amazing how it came.
I took that as a sign.
More recently I have been paying more and more attention to Ray Comfort and his life, and his ministry, I am really happy actually to say that once, no, twice he has responded me on his facebook page, he is constantly replying to people on there and his heart is filled with great love for the lost and God’s people.
Last but not least, I have to mention one of my latest most greatest inspirations, I actually wouldn’t do an online radio show had it not been for coming to find out ‘more’ about this man and his story, of overcoming so much such as alcoholism, and so much more while making it against all odds, when everyone else was dying and still are waiting so anxiously for him to fail miserably, but each time they mock, he just rises a littler higher.
- 4. Glenn Beck
My grandpa has always watched Mr. Beck, mostly way back when he was on Fox News, I remember walking into my grandparents room and my grandpa was watching Fox News and being younger I thought it was stupid to see all of those people just arguing their heads off and then there was the crazy man with bleached out spiked hair screaming about the end of the world, the crazy caliphate which is now a reality, what Obamacare would do to America which is now also a reality and so on and so on.
Turns out the ‘kook’ was actually right about more than people gave him credit for, seems to me that people always love to criticize and put down what their puny little minds just cannot seem to comprehend, however when it turns out that what some loon three years ago was saying, is now a reality, everyone want’s to get their hands on the gold story, because now it actually means something to them when it was 10 times more important to hear three years ago, but no. Nobody ever wants to take into consideration that maybe this isn’t some crazy scare tactic to panic everyone in America and to fuel the ‘Preppers’ to go out and buy more stock.
Maybe, just maybe, it’s a reality, after studying much about Mr. Beck, I found out that what he was saying three years ago is actually, exactly what we are living today, I watched all the videos of him and his critics mocking him to scorn oh how the liberal left loved and still loves to mock him, but I seen a lot of mockery from the right wing GOP as well well you can’t make everybody happy. After all of this research I quickly became fascinated more with his story and how he overcome and rose above all obstacles against all odds, as you read earlier I am a sucker for a good testimony – it turns out that only three years or less when Mr. Beck left Fox News (and everyone from all sides leaped for joy and the mockery continued) everyone was hoping that would be the very end of Mr. Beck.
However, I believe that was actually the beginning of something magnificent, it is incredible how in just three years alone he came back in a big way, in a huge way with ‘The Blaze Tv’ and ‘The Blaze Radio’ there were times when his quality wasn’t so great, and the sound was just terrible, I mean I have felt bad from time to time about not being able to get my sound right, but then I look back on where Mr. Beck came from, which brings me to the conclusion of this post.
Glenn Beck’s Radio program, and his triumphs over all the opposition and his motivation to continue on against all of the odds, is what most encouraged me to begin my radio online, though I have always had such a talent within me, it would have not come out as soon if I had not studied the fascinating Testimony of Beck, I still watch him from time to time when the Blaze is offered as a preview on Dish and I even got a free month subscription awhile back to watch him discuss ‘The Root’ of Jihad, that was incredible.
There are a lot of things I don’t necessarily agree with Mr. Beck on, however I believe that his news network is a very trusted and validated source, with legitimacy always backing up himself with facts and evidence when he speaks of such global events, that is why Mr. Beck is an inspiration to me.
If there was anyone in life that I had a chance to met for just one day, or if I was dying and could see one person, I would choose to see Glenn Beck for I do believe he is a very real, genuine, kindhearted and loving person.
Now I hope all of you little ones have learned something out of this today, and hopefully from me sharing their life stories and how their testimonies effect me personally, perhaps we can all become a little more inspired today may you all be blessed abundantly beyond your wildest imaginations, thank you for reading my blog post today it was very nice to write it finally and until we meet again.
