How To Be a Healthy Role Model

We want our daughters and granddaughters to grow into strong, beautiful and confident women – so, how are you helping?

Before we blame the media, friends or any other outside influences for their role in shaping our kids’ self-image, Amber Evans, owner of Stars Talent Studio, says a look in the mirror can’t hurt.

Healthy role models are those who possess the qualities that we would like to have and those who make us better people. It is important to understand that a healthy role model serves as a guide and a mentor. They are looked up to and admired. A role model inspires and motivates. Role models send messages about their beliefs by what they do and say. Follow these 6 keys concepts on how you can enhance others personal growth:

Value Your Personal Worth & Influence

How you view yourself is another important aspect of being a healthy role model and will impact how you value and view others. Carefully monitor the messages you send both verbally and with your body language. If you want to influence others to be confident, happy and optimistic about their lives, then emulate those same qualities.

Handle Stress Positively

Being human means having to constantly deal with stress and overcome obstacles. A role model sets a good example on how to handle pressure. Model effective problem-solving skills.

Be Trustworthy

Trustworthiness is an essential quality if you are a healthy role model. A role model is honest and doesn’t lie. A role model possesses integrity and does the right thing even if no one is looking or he does not receive acknowledgment for his act.

Respect for Others

How you treat others speaks volumes about who you are. A good role model listens to others and also considers opposing points of view. He treats others how he would want to be treated and is considerate of others. When making mistakes, a role model does not place the blame on others; he owns up to his own shortcomings.

A good role model also does what she says. A good role model delivers on her promises and can always be counted on even when she is overwhelmed and wants to quit. Perseverance is a key trait. Role models demonstrate that if they work hard to attain something, then others can, too. They give you dreams and goals to aspire to.

Healthy Behaviors

A good role model demonstrates positive qualities through service and helpful behaviors. Set an example of compassion and selflessness for those you come in contact with by engaging in compassionate service yourself.
