If you’re questioning whether you’re an effective role model or not, what are you looking at? How many admirers do you have to be their role model? How many people are mimicking their lifestyle after you? Or how many people have failed to meet your expectations?
It doesn’t matter so much as to how many people are succeeding in “being you” and how many are not. What you need to focus on is to know what qualities it takes to be a good role model first.
- Have passion and ability to inspire
- Maintain a clear set of values
- Accept and embrace obstacles while overcoming them with dignity
- Don’t worry about perfection
- Take opportunities
- Have a role model for yourself
Once you embrace these qualities, you can and will soon see how you are positively making an impact on others. These other people will set goals to achieve on their own and one day, they too will be a role model unto another.
