A part of succeeding in our lives is having a good role model to look up to. Whether it’s Mom or Dad or a friend, a sibling, or even someone you don’t personally know like the President, or a celebrity, or a humanitarian, or a CEO, having a role model is very critical.
These role models help us shape how we want to live our own lives. They are admirable for what they do, what they believe in, and what they stand for. We want to achieve their goals one day and if we stick to that plan, we can do it! This effectively keeps us out of trouble and danger. And one day, you will be a role model to someone else and you in turn, will be keeping this person goal-oriented.
It does not matter how old your role model is, if you know them personally, etc. What matters is that you find good reason for yourself to aspire to be like them and you do not give up on yourself. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing you can achieve your goals, and even more wonderful when you do.
