Can you remember the last time you were really inspired? Maybe it was because of a quote, a person, or an awe-inspiring trip. But, I know one thing: Inspiration doesn't last. We need it daily.

I am a firm believer that one of the best things you can do for yourself in 2017 is to find five people who inspire you and to follow their journey.

Here are five blogs that inspire me. I hope that they would be helpful for you in 2017.

1. Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee)

Gary is on a mission to "day trade attention and build businesses." He may be a little intense for some people, but I love his passion and his work ethic.

I would highly recommend subscribing to his blog, follow him on Twitter, and check out his YouTube channel. Below is one of my favorite videos that he had done.

2. Eric Thomas (@EricThomasBTC)

Overcoming homelessness, poverty, and a tough childhood are only three of the many things that make Eric one of the most inspiring and encouraging motivational speakers. Eric is now traveling the world sharing his message of hope and hustle.

You can follow Eric on Twitter, subscribe to his podcasts, or follow his YouTube channel.

3. Michael Hyatt (@MichaelHyatt)

Did you know that Michael is your virtual mentor? At least he is according to his Twitter bio. In all seriousness, he is an incredibly helpful guy who helps "overwhelmed, high achievers to get the clarity, confidence, and tools [we] need to win at work and succeed in life." 

You can read some of Michael's most popular posts here, follow him on Twitter, or check out his Youtube channel here.


Two of the people who inspire me got together for an interview this year. I would highly recommend it!
