As an adult, I embrace my responsibility as a role model. I believe there are key traits I should possess in order to be a good role model.
Maintaining positivity is one of those traits. When I am positive even in negative circumstances, I am looked upon as someone to emulate. I recognize this and endeavor to stay positive at all times.
Sometimes financial hardships can cause me to feel discouraged. But instead of giving in to those negative feelings, I think of creative ways to earn additional income. This approach encourages others to do the same. I am happy when I can help others make their lives better through my examples.
I share examples of my struggles with my kids and show them how maintaining a positive outlook always allows me to reap success in the end.
I encourage others to believe that persevering and tweaking their approach can eventually lead them to success.
My friends always turn to me for advice because it seems like I have all the right answers. But I remind them that it is more about the outlook. I explain that the outcome may not always be favorable for me, but I smile anyway.
Today, I live a stress-free life when I allow myself to be positive, so I maintain my positivity as much as possible. Another “plus” of this action is that it makes me a good role model.
- Do I think I have what it takes to counsel others?
- Am I always willing to be a positive role model for others?
- How do I get myself out the slump when a negative situation affects me?
