What is a Role Model?
In many interviews with sports stars, particularly if their behaviour is the result of poor choices, the word "role model" is often used to highlight their bad behaviour. For example, a football player got into a fight recently with a player from another team, it was said that his behaviour is a poor role model.
So what is a role model? Is it someone who posts lots of photos of themselves on Instagram? Is it someone who can do anything they want and are selfish in their behaviour?
A role model is someone who inspires another. How have you inspired others today? Are the choices that you making showing how others can achieve? Or is the example you are setting, leading others to make poor choices about behaviour and attitude?
Think about the qualities of what makes a good role model. What qualities or behaviour would lead you to become a better person? Which of those qualities do you have? Which ones do you need to work on?
