Inspiration From Unlikely Places

December 8, 2014  |  Inspiration

Anderson Silva is on of the greatest fighters to ever live. He’s strong, tactical, and intimidating. In short, the man is a badass. Most professional athletes point to other athletes when it comes to where they get their motivation from, Mike Tyson or Muhammed Ali perhaps. Silva, however, looks to Peter Parker.

Silva has been known as “The Spider” for a while, and Spider Man has always been his favorite super hero. Silva uses Spider Man as part of his motivation to be better and recover from the broken leg he injured against Chris Weidman in UFC 168.

Inspiration can come from unlikely places. Hell, gravity was discovered because of an apple. That’s one of the things that I’ve been able to learn from this class. I’ve gone in to projects and shoots within projects thinking that things would go one way but then end up entirely different. I’ve learned to not be married to my initial ideas because I can be inspired to do something better during the process. Like with Anderson Silva, inspiration can come in any shape and size, and you have to be open to anything that comes your way.
