Who is a Role Model ?
A role model is someone you look up to. Traits that you would like for yourself. It may also be the case where there is this person and you have nothing in common with him but he has these one or two traits that you would like to possess.
But are there only good role models that we should follow?
No, not at all. I believe, we must also pay attention to those role models that we do not agree with and the traits that we don’t want in our lives.
I think it is also very important to look at other people and learn from them, the bad traits that they have. These people may not know what they are doing wrong, but it is clear to you, that they possess a few bad trait that bring them misfortune.
So observe people, don’t judge them instead learn from them. There may be something that happened to them because of which they became that way and its not working anymore. They may totally not be aware of it. And from your position you can clearly see what is going wrong.
So learn from them. If a person did not take any risks in life and because of that they are where they were 20–30 years ago. That doesn't seem like a good thing. If you notice something like that, learn from them and don’t make the same mistake they did in your life.
If your parents did not take care of their health in past nor in the present. You don’t make the same mistake. You have to take care of yourself and also your parents.
If your friends don’t have any aim or goals in life. Don’t follow them aimlessly. If they spend a lot of money that they shouldn’t be spending. Don’t do the same with your own money.
Conclusion — Learn from people around you. Don’t just look at people that have made, it’s also equally important to pay attention to those who didn’t make it. They have equal amount of knowledge or more amount of knowledge that you don’t want to apply in your life.
