In today’s troubled times it is more important than ever to have role models for others to look up to. A true role model is not only a source of inspiration; he is a template and guide on how to act for those that look up to him. But that leaves us with the question of how we can choose our role models; who are the people that can act as our guides as we move forward through our lives?
The most important trait that a role model must have is that he must have an inspiring personality. I don’t mean that he has to be charismatic, he must simply inspire people to live up to his example. Craig Effron is an instance of having such a trait.
He is the type of man that would save a kitten stuck at the top of a tree, go out of his way to help a friend in need, and lend a hand to a stranger without even needing to be asked. His selflessness has forced me to reevaluate the choices that I make on a daily basis, and I have become a better man because of his example. Because of his unique qualities there are a number of articles about Craig.
So when you choose your role model, ensure that your selection makes you want to be a better person than you already are. As long as you feel that by following their guidance you are encouraging your own self-growth, as I do by my association with Craig, than you will benefit.
