It’s been SUPER long since I’ve posted, but I’m planning to get back at it and post more frequently now.
So as the exams get closer and all the stress starts to heighten, I’ve been thinking of ways of how to cope ‘mentally’ through all of it, like how to be determined in achieving my goals even when I am feeling completely down about it.
And this is what I’ll be sharing with you all today: the importance of having a role model. It sounds a bit odd at first, but having people to look up to could actually re-dictate your mental state and encourage you to work harder. It is not just about admiring the person, but it is the desire to become like them, and to take their life philosophies and achievements as a motivation. Because at the end of the day, this is how human life flourishes best: through cooperation and inspiration, rather than envy or jealousy.
You can have more than one role model. For instance, my love for politics and leadership has helped me pick Lee Kuan Yew (former prime minister of Singapore) as one to look up to, for his strict discipline and determination in his life philosophy inspires me to become more organised and conscious in my work life.
Writers and thinkers have always inspired me, like Fyodor Dostoyevsky, who helps me remember the magic of literature and to put more effort in my own writing.
Famous ballerinas like Olga Smirnova and Marienala Nunez have also inspired me in my own life, not just because of their success, but because of their strong personalities as women, their elegance and their tremendous passion for art, which encourages me to dedicate more time and love for art in my own life!
Of course, as life continues to pass by, we can often forget these influential people and their impact in our lives, but this is why it is always important to remember them during the dark times, and to continue to take inspiration as a guide for success.
Merci, and wish you all happiness! ❤
