Having someone to look up to during your childhood is an important factor in life. It’s important in many ways such as you have someone to help guide you through the tough times and you have trust in them. If you need someone to talk to about a problem, then you know you have a good responsible person for that. They set an example for you to follow and to even improve on that example. The role model in your life helps shape the person you will become in life. To be that someone for younger siblings or peers you need to know what to do to set that example for them. First you have to want to be a good person and not put yourself in positions that will tempt you to do bad or negative things. For example choose your friends wisely and don’t give in to peer pressure. If your friends suggest going out and getting drunk, don’t think you have to also. Choose to have higher standards for yourself and make your own decisions. The morals you choose to live by when you get older is often affected by how you grow up. Having younger siblings should help push you to be a better person which allows you to influence them in a positive way. Hopefully if you do good things then they will want to follow in your footsteps. Some families don’t always have parents to set rules so you should be the person your siblings can admire and respect. It’s also important to be a good role model for your peers. This can be accomplished by trying your hardest at school and having a positive attitude. Doing random acts of kindness will inspire others to do the same. Set high goals for yourself so the people you’re around will want to be better. Don’t waste your time being ignorant and going out to party. The things you do potentially could have an impact on someone’s future. An important factor in life is always having someone to trust, respect and guide you through life. Be a leader in life and the things you choose to do, don’t be a follower. Always stick to your values and never let anyone try to influence you in a negative way. How you choose to live your life could help change another’s for the better, so always be the best you can be.
