Be A Leader: Finding Your Role Model

Afghanistan boy Murtaza Ahmadi, dubbed ‘Little Messi’, shot to global stardom in early 2016 after his photos of him dressed in blue-and-white-striped plastic jersey with Lionel Messi’s name inscribed in marker were posted on Facebook.

On his role model, Murtaza reportedly told CNN:

“I want to meet Messi, spend time with him, I love the way he plays football. I love him very, very much.”

Behind every successful person stands a very strong role model. He or she can be a person whose behaviour, example or success is or can be emulated by others, especially by younger people.

Having someone to look up to while growing up can play a huge role in inspiring us to achieve the best we can for ourselves. After all, leadership lessons learnt during childhood help establish first seeds of leadership ambition.

Perhaps one day, we get to see Little Messi growing up to be a professional football player too.
