We all have a role model/s – someone we aspire, the ones we look forward to and want to be like him/her/them. A person can have multiple role models depending upon one’s aspirations and relating to different aspects of life. A role model can be anyone, someone we know personally, for instance, our parents, friends, family members or it could be any successful or ideal person. Usually, these are the people who have a huge fan base and people idealize them with respect to their career or arena of work, for example, Sachin Tendulkar or Steve Jobs.
While having role models is good as it guides an individual in learning about one’s career track and how to reach there but at the same time, it may mislead as well. Often, there are chances of building the stereotype around oneself and one’s life. As a result, an individual may stop thinking out of the box and only start looking at the predefined lifepath of the role model.
In such instances, it is important that one learns from the career or life path of the role models especially the important lessons dealing with life’s difficulties. But it is of equal significance to appreciate and remember the fact that one should only take guidance from them and build one’s own life and career depending upon one’s life circumstances.
The focus should not be on repeat the history, rather one must work towards building a new history. We should not be known by the names of others, but give ourselves a new identity based on our determination and work. We should strive towards making our own footprints.
There is no doubt in it that everyone can build a new future for themselves and one’s fundamental thinking is directed towards the same. To direct one’s future in the right direction, one’s determination is one’s biggest power and a big change can be brought in life through this. The scriptures mention three powers – willpower, determination, and focus. Every individual has these powers in large or small quantities. No one is powerless with respect to these three powers. But the real power lies in awakening these three powers. The one who has awakened one’s determination is invincible. Some people are afraid of making resolutions or being determined as they are not aware that one’s growth or progress cannot happen without determination.
The ones who cannot imagine, cannot be determined, and can’t reach their goals. There is a positive correlation between hard work, determination, and success. If one is determined and working hard towards achieving one’s goals than he/she would surely succeed. If one is prudent than one’s determination is bound to pay off. It is noteworthy that to make life unique and eccentric, one needs determination and not weapons. This would lead to the bridging of gaps in the process of thinking, decision making and implementation, therefore paving the way forward to be successful.
