Oct 18, 2017, will always be remembered by Canadians.

That was the day that Gord Downie, leader of The Tragically Hip and Canadian icon passed away.

The Tragically Hip have been called a Canadian treasure and the national band of Canada.

Gord Downie was (and will continue to be) a role model and an influence. He inspired many in Canada, his vision reached much wider than music, and he had a lot to say.

Role models are a real and powerful force in your life. If you have good ones you can overcome the worst that life can throw at you and still be successful. If, on the other hand, you (either consciously or unconsciously) have selected poor role models your life might never reach its full potential.

The purpose of this episode it to help you understand why having and worshiping heroes is a key to success; and how to choose a proper role model.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Issac Newton said, "The reason I can see so far is that I've stood on the shoulders of giants." Role models are an excellent shortcut to help you become the person you want to be in order to achieve the things you want to achieve.
  • Choose your role models carefully and you can even be selective in that process. It's OK to look up to and admire someone, that's human nature, but you don't have to accept all of them. You can pick and choose which parts you like and which parts you don't like. Tiger Woods would have been an excellent golf role model; not so much in the relationship department.
  • Role models are art in motion. As a human being you need art to survive. Your role model - in a very real example - embodies that. Be very careful who you choose.
