The-Role-Model-Guidebook Role modeling is paradoxical. If you surround yourself with positive role models, you’ll likely become an effective role model for your kids, co- workers, or someone else.
“When a young person, even a gifted one, grows up without proximate living examples of what she may aspire to become–whether lawyer, scientist, artist, or leader in any realm–her goal remains abstract. Such models as appear in books or on the news, however inspiring or revered, are ultimately too remote to be real,let alone influential. But a role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; his orher very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, ‘Yes, someone like me can do this.’”
