It’s important to have someone you look up to, but don’t forget the other side of the coin. Wherever you are, you have a sphere of influence–a group of people who are influenced by the things you say and do. How does your life hold up? The core of an admirable life is respect. When you respect yourself and others, you behave in a way that sets a high standard. You’ll do things you can be proud of and inspire others to do the same.
