Who is an example for you? Your mother? Your father? Margaret Mead, Meryl Streep, your French teacher, the woman who lives next door? This could be a celebrity or someone you know who you admire and want to be like.
“If you have a person who is an example for you, it can have a strong and positive impact on your life,” says Michel Paludi, Ph.D., coordinator of the program for studying attitudes of women to mentors, conducted by Hunter College in New York.
The influence of such people extends to your whole life, even if they leave your life.
“When I was a little more than twenty and I felt insecure in life, at work I met a woman older than myself, who alone raised three children and was, like me, a reporter, recalls 39-year-old Mary Cameron. She not only knew a lot of things about which I had no idea, she was absolutely confident in herself. I learned from her what it means to be a good reporter and a man. Over the years I have learned many traits of her character. Sometimes, when I say something, it seems to me that I hear her voice as if it is she who speaks. ”
