โChoose someone whose way of life as well as words, and whose very face as mirroring the character that lies behind it, have won your approval. Be always pointing him out to yourself either as your guardian or as your model. There is a need, in my view, for someone as a standard against which our characters can measure themselves. Without a ruler to do it against you wonโt make crooked straight.โ SENECA - Powerful. I love this quote. It's so important to have a role model. Mentorship is critical to personal growth & development. But, it can be hard to find the right mentor. Due to some of the stresses of running a family business, I started to look outside of my environment for additional mentorship & guideance. Along the way, I found role models in my books. Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, @ryanholiday @timferriss to name a few. Yes, I have never actually met them & may never have the chance to. But, these men have lived their lives & shared words of meaning that have really shaped my life, inspired me to be a better person, pursue the life I want & help me love the fact that I am different. Who is your mentor? Who is your role model?
