I believe that a good role model most of all should have a positive attitude. I think that one thing that really deters people is believing that they can not do something. I sometimes feel that way and I find that my greatest motivators are my role models; the people I look up to everyday. I also think that a good role model needs to be determined and a bit fearless. When I say fearless I do not mean jumping off a bridge I mean that they cannot fear success because once you begin to fear success the fear will not let you prevail. Being the best you can be is not something you fear, it is something you admire.
I learned these qualities from my role models, which include my biggest role model, my mother. She has endured so many obstacles but she does not let those obstacles control her life; she lets those challenges lead her to success. She has a very positive outlook on life and no matter what she is faced , she is determined. I hope to have her ability to prevail no matter the challenge. I also think that I surround myself by many role models everyday which include my peers, co-workers and bosses. I feel that this university is full of such hardworking people and many students have three and four jobs and still maintain their school work. Many students have been through so much but still seem to have the drive to succeed. Those people inspire me to do more, because when you believe you are doing a lot you can always do so much more.
