Quote of the day: Role Models

If you don’t want to be considered a role model then don’t do anything worthwhile or significant in your life!

Kids model what they see. If you’re successful or perceived to be successful then they will try to replicate what you are doing in order to achieve that same level of success, or greater.

Just as we (adults) did the same thing growing up. We modeled people that we believed made it to the top, or made it to a level that we wanted to achieve.

That my friends is a role model. There’s no getting around it except to not excel in any area of your life that brings any significant attention to yourself.
How many of you truly have been aiming that low throughout your life?

So stop saying, “I’m not a role model,” and instead start living your life knowing that everything you say and do is being closely watched by an impressionable young person, who one day will want to be just like you—good, bad, ugly, or indifferent!
