I am looking for a word to describe a person who has high achievements in a particular field. High achievements can be subjective so this word should have personal meanings. For example, I really like an artist, although he may not be the best artist in the world, I just personally like his work so much that he has the power to motivate me to study art and set up a goal for myself to become someone like him. so he is my . Any ideas?
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I'm not sure there's a panacaea here for you. As you said, this is a "personal meaning" question. Here are some ideas though:
Hope this helps!
