To be quite honest, I can't really say I have one role model. I went through life without a father however, God put people in my life who I could look up to. Whether it be church leaders, community leaders, or even just friends of mine.
I haven't arrived as of yet but I am at a place in my life where I count everything I receive as a blessing. I look around and I am surrounded by greatness. Everyone whom I count as my circle is on their grind, their job and their purpose. When I see them, they inspire me to do better for myself.
Now, take a look at your situation, now look at your circle of friends, associates or people you network with. Are they inspiring you to do better? Do they make you crave more out of life? I've heard it said, "Show me your friends and I'll show you who you are!"
I think of Liam Neeson in Batman when he kept on saying to Bruce, "You never learned to mind your surroundings." If you lie down with dogs and get fleas then surely who you're surrounded by makes a difference. Watch who is in your circle and keep God as the center of it.
Live in Peace of Mind, Keep it JESUS and Much Love!
