The Person Who Inspires Me
By Ann
Successful people in every field have certain characteristics in common. It is worth our time to analyze the characteristics of a person who is now where we would like to be in future. Some teens turn to pop singers or actors for inspiration but many find inspiration much closer to home. I'm one of them. My mum is my role model, a person who has made a major impact on my life.
My mum is a tall beautiful fair-haired woman of about 40. She has the kindest greenish-grey eyes and a nice smile. She is easy-going and friendly and we always have a great time together.
My mum works hard Monday to Friday to ensure that every day basic needs are met for our family. She is very successful because she's very determined and hard-working. Although she works really hard for our family, she manages to find time for me. She says that the family comes first and then a career.
My mum is a truly remarkable person. We often joke in our family that our house has a star in the window to signal a safe place for everyone. My Mum always offers a helping hand to others - a kind word, a joke or a listening ear. Ours is a house where there is always a big, delicious meal and plenty of extra seats for those who would stop by and for those who sometimes come and stay. My mum simply loves people and they love her.
We are very close and we often share secrets. We work together to solve our problems. My mum is very supportive, encouraging me to study well. She says I mustn't be so frustrated about my failures and cry so much. My mum's photo is on my desk and every time I have to take a serious decision I check as if it were her choice. It helps me in my walks of life
My mum is my inspiration because she never puts pressure on me. Her achievements make me work on my own personality. I try to do my best to be successful in my studies. I've got many friends and they can always rely on me.      .
It is impossible to become exactly like someone else and there is no need to. We have to remain ourselves but strive to acquire new traits of character to help us achieve our goals.
