Who do you look up to? Finding a role model

We all need role models in our lives. These are people who will inspire us to achieve your ambitions. That’s why it’s important to choose a positive role model – someone you like, and someone you can look up to as you grow up. Maybe it’s a community leader, business person, teacher, or health worker...maybe it’s a family member or friend. You can pick a role model you know personally, or even a famous person. Follow these easy tips and find the best role model for you:

  • Pick a positive and motivated person, who has values that you admire. Your role model should be someone who inspires you to become the person you want to be.
  • Make a list of things you want to achieve. This will help you find a role model who has achieved what you want to achieve, so you can learn from them how to follow your goals.
  • Choose someone who makes you feel better about yourself, not worse.
  • Your role model should be real and genuine – they should be comfortable being themselves, and be OK with their successes and flaws.

Remember, it is important to be YOURSELF at all times. Role models are there to help guide you, not change you. We are all different, so don’t lose yourself trying to be someone else. Read our article on “7 ways to love yourself”, and give yourself some love!
