I’m one of the lucky ones. Growing up, I had an amazing, loving, and motivated mother as someone to look up to. She was my role model, and there’s not a day that goes by when I’m not thankful for everything she did for me.
Today on the Fit is Freedom Podcast, join me as I celebrate my mother’s birthday by sharing fond memories and discussing the importance of finding a role model in your life.

Why Do We Need Role Models?
You see, my mother was years ahead of her time. She exercised regularly, became a 5th-degree black belt in Taekwondo, and was still teaching yoga well into her 80s. She was the perfect example of how you can care for your mind and body, live a full and happy life, and find fun no matter your age.
As we move through life, finding someone with the life you aspire to lead is important. Seeing yourself in someone a little more accomplished or leading a life you want to lead will motivate you to continue toward your goals.
How Can I Find a Role Model?
For some, it may be a close relative, but for others, it may be a coach, mentor, or inspirational leader. It doesn’t matter who it is, just as long as they represent where you want to be headed.
If you don’t have an immediate family member who is living the life you want to lead in the future, look outwardly for inspiration. You could find people locally who teach or coach fitness classes you enjoy, but thanks to the World Wide Web, you can also search online.
Find authors or podcasters who align with your dreams and aspirations or peruse social media for women or men who inspire you.
