Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
I did not have role models when I grew up but as a young adult, I was impacted by Thich Nhat Hahn and many other spiritual teachers after that! They have all taught me about gratefulness and compassion, about the value of authenticity and persistence towards a high goal beneficial for all concerned.
