I feel that a good role model is someone who may influence you in a constructive way. However, a great role model is not only a person that another may feel they can relate to, but someone who has positive outlooks on life and allows for others to feel the same way. It may be someone who inspires as well as motivates you to do your best and always encourages you when you may not necessarily want to hear it. A good role model may inspire you, but a great role model pushes you to pursue things that you may not have been able to achieve on your own.
My role model is my mother as she has always been there and always will be there for me. She always pushes me to do my best and encourages me to continue on even when I don’t feel that I can. She also ALWAYS gives me constructive criticism to allow me to do my best in life even when I don’t necessarily want to hear it. Looking back, everything that she has pushed me to achieve in life may not have seemed important to me at the time, but proved to be greatly significant and allowed for me to be a better person. I feel that everyone has a role model in their life, but not all of them may be positive role models. It is important for everyone to have a role model that has a positive influence on their life as everyone needs a little extra encouragement and motivation sometime.
