The importance of having role models.

"Example is the school of mankind, and they will learn at no other."
- Edmund Burke

I know, for a fact, I am the person that I am today due to the influence of people, whom I had admired and emulated. They made me who I am today. My morals, character, philosophy, religion have all been influence in one way or another by these people.

I believe that it is extremely important for anyone to have at least one role model. I had multiple throughout my years growing up and continue to look up to people.

Please share your thoughts on the matter.
