Have you ever stopped to think about the role models in your life?
The influences that helped shape who you are today.
You may be able to think about one particular person or influence or you may have several role models.
Or maybe you haven’t given it much thought just yet.
A role model can be anyone or it doesn’t even have to be a person.
It can be a book, an idea, something that provokes you to be the best you can be.
For example, I personally look up to Bruce Lee when it comes to philosophy,
Oprah Winfrey taught me about the importance of practicing gratitude
Tony Robbins inspires me to be a social worker and connect with others wholeheartedly.
Morihei Ueshiba helped me to realize that martial arts isn’t to fight your opponent on outside,
the opponent lies on the inside.
I’ve never met any of them but I studied them and they became my role models.
The purpose of having a role model is not to become them
but to emulate the good in them and create your own unique being
that is aligned with your heart and soul.
Role Models can affect and influence different areas of your life.
You may also find that your role models may change over time and that’s fine too.
Everyone has their purpose during different phases of your life.
It’s not about being right, either. Your interpretation is yours alone just like an art piece in an art museum.
No one has the right to judge. You’re a multi-dimensional human with so many wonderful facets,
so much untapped potential.
Every time you are faced with a setback or difficulty, think of your role models.
Look them in the eye and remember their essence.
Find Your Role Model.
I’d love to hear from you. Who are your role models and how do they inspire you?
