The Various Role Models you can have in Life

By Heather Protz Subscribe to RSS | February 23rd 2012 | Views:

What importance do role models have in our life? Who are the role models in our life? These questions are quite intriguing and also to an extent tough to answer. You may feel that the concept of having a role model is suitable for a child. As we grow up and become an adult, the need for a role model remains useless. Seriously, it is wrong. Even though many of us have a role model or idolize some people since our childhood, still it can and will continue in our adulthood. The question that apprehends us is who to choose as a role model. Not which person, but the kind of person. The person whom we chose as our role model should be a good one. It will make our life meaningful.

No one wants to choose a bad role model in life. You just cannot think on how it would affect our personality if we chose a bad one. Nowadays, the fashion or you can say that many people like to have celebrities as role model. People get so hooked up in following the way the celebrity dress, speak and even copy their sense of fashion. It is awkward and funny, but it is true. Some of the common celebrities who are considered as role models are David Beckham, Keira Knightley, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Kelly Homes, and the list can go on and on. Frankly, there is no harm in taking celebrities as role model, but you must make sure that they have a good influence over you. Many celebrities are known for their unwanted and irritating tantrums.

Another most common role model that people choose are our parents and grandparents. At a small age, our parents and grandparents are the ones who influence us. We spent most of the time with them that we just idolize them. The way they behave, react in a particular situation, etc just hooks us so much that we just want to be like them when we grow up. Trust me, there is no person who has looked up to their parents especially fathers as role models. If people have their parents as their role model, they do things that please them.

For them parents is their life. What golden rules parents follow, these people follow that in their life. It is somewhat good, but parents need to have a good character. If you are a parent you need to make sure you are setting up a good example for your child. Your children do need to be good people of the society. The next kinds of role models are historical figures. People worship and take these historical people as their role models because of the things they did in their life. The way they lived, the principals they followed, just captivate you. You try to follow the ways they lived and learn the principles they preached. Not only you learn the principles, but also try to enact them in your day to day life.

It could be interesting and good if you have a historical and national hero as your role model. These people are the ones that people respect and cherish. Being like them will do well for you as it could make you a good citizen and an asset to the society. Needless to say, we need to know a lot about the historical characters before being one. Many of them had a great public life, but their private life was not successful and filled with happiness. Frankly, there is no hard and fast rule that says you need to have a role model. Some people feel it’s better not to have one as it makes them lose their originality. Coping and following the principles of the role model will make them like a carbon copy of one. In case you have one, you can idolize that role model, but make sure that the role model is or was a respectable figure in the society.
