If it wasn't for his example, I'd never reached the point where I'm here today.

Does my sentence below have the same meaning?
If I hadn't seen him, I'd never reached the point where I'm here today.

Thanks

Yes, but I suspect you're missing a "have" in both sentences:

«If it wasn't for his example, I'd never have reached the point where I am (here?) today.»

Also I'd supppose not contracting the "am" in the second sentence because this word is more or less stressed, which is quite hard to do if there're no vowels.
Yes, "have" is req'd.

I agree with you.
Yes, I missed have.
Thanks, Ant and Marius.
1. If it wasn't for his example, I would never have got where I am today.
2. If I hadn't seen him, I would never have got where I am today.

(I've amended the second clause slightly, to make it more idiomatic.)

#1 does not mean the same as #2, unless the context supplies additional meaning. Thus a successful trapeze artist might say:

3. In my youth, I saw the celebrated MrP, performing on the high wire. After that, he was always my role model. If I hadn't seen him, I would never have got where I am today.

Here, the listener can infer the "example" aspect.

Thanks, MrP.
So, can I say,
If I hadn't seen him performing on the high wire, I would never have got(or gotten) where I am today.

Hello LJ,

Yes, that's fine – if your interlocutor knows that you're a high wire performer too!

Best wishes,

MrP
Thanks so much, MrP.
You're welcome!

(And take it easy up there. Don't forget to use a net.)
