Who has influenced you the most in your life?

George Eliot once said: "Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another".
It seems to me that everyone has been influenced by someone to pursue a certain career or to follow a certain path in life.
Who is that person for you? And how did he/she influence you?

    Jun 1 2013: 'Everyone' , whom i came across in my life influenced me in some way or the other. Parents, my teachers , friends and so on..
    In school because my friends were good at studies i was influenced by them to study well, the leaders of my nation always influenced me to be bold, courageous and i was always determined by them to serve the nation. My father who was a big follower of the first women Prime minister of our country (India) named me with her name, thinking that i would one day become a great leader like her and she is the one who always influenced me in every aspect of my life.
