When we were young and growing up, there is always an elder person whom we admire and dote on for many reasons. Usually, it is a parent, teacher, sibling, cousin, or uncle/aunt, who is someone we look up to and copy. Some of us may do it intentionally, while some of us will do it without realizing how much influence they have on our actions.
Fashion Model Georgina Gentle believes anyone who impacts her life positively is a role model. Today she will be sharing with us reasons why we all need a role model in our lives.
WHO IS A ROLE MODEL
Any person whose behavior, example, or success is or can be emulated by others, is a role model.
“Role models for me aren’t necessarily people in my line of work or field. A good role model can come from any different field or relationship; it could be my Mum, Dad, brother, an influencer I come across on a social media platform, a random inspirational video I come across online. It’s anybody that has worked their way up and has had to deal with obstacles in their lives.” Georgina says.
Reaching your full potential in life requires you to have the right role models. Without them, it will be hard for you to turn out to be all that you can be. With the right role models, you will be on your way to reaching your full potential.
WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE ROLE MODELS
They inspire you to keep going
We all go through difficult times at some point in life and having a role model that has overcome their obstacles and made a success out of their lives is inspiring. Someone like that can change your outlook on certain issues.
They can motivate you to overcome challenges.
There are always challenges along the way that could discourage you. Having role models will motivate you to overcome them. Why? Because they have proved that it can be done! They have gone through them themselves. It’s now your chance to follow in their footsteps.
To Georgina watching recordings of Individuals who have uplifting points of view gives her motivation and inspiration to progress admirably and be effective.
They encourage you to achieve your goals
Knowing that there is someone out there who made their dreams come true no matter what they faced could very well inspire you to do the same. Looking at their success could make you want to work hard to make sure that you also accomplish the things you want to accomplish.
FINDING THE RIGHT ROLE MODEL
“Of course your role model doesn’t have to be someone close to you and you don’t have to admire everything about them”. Georgina shares.
Your role model could be your dad because he is kind, your mom because she is tough and your grandmother because she is confident. The most important thing is to choose a person that has a positive influence on your life.
