People confuse the real meaning of role models these days. Someone once asked me if I thought role models could be singers, movies stars or well known people? I replied, “Yeah they could be.” That person later explained that role models are the people that you can observe to make sure they are living to the standards they portray. People that are right in front of you.
Of course people can and will look up to celebrities, however that person made a legit point. True role models are sometimes those everyday people that we observe and spend time with. The definition of a role model is simply “a person who serves as an example.” Anybody can be a role model. Question is are you a good or bad one? Does your lifestyle match up with what you are proclaiming?
What if you don’t have someone to look up to? Well I recommend Jesus Christ. His example is in the greatest book of all time–the Bible. Check out His lifestyle and how consistent He was in every aspect. I’m just here to remind you that someone is always watching you. Be the reason they choose to make a good decision. Be the light or change you wish to see.
Be the role model you wish you had.
