Do these following sentences have the same meaning?

1) His story is really one of going from rags to riches.

2) His story is really one of rags to riches.


Can I write this by following the same sentence pattern? "His story is really one of my inspirations"

Yes. 1) and 2) have the same meaning.

I think in the case of inspiration, though, we usually say something more like

His story really inspired me.


The use of 'one' is different.

His story is one of rags to riches.
Here 'one' means 'a story', and 'of' means 'about', more or less, so it means His story is a story about rags to riches.

But His story is one of my inspirations is not
His story is a story about my inspirations.
Here 'one of' is simply a count, a number.
