We are here with more good news! Everyday the first 50 entries we receive, here’s a special something for you!
The role models you talk about in your posts will receive a special #MyRoleModel Memento!Â
In the video, we see Rahul Dravid thanking his father for being his true role model. In this story, a young boy recalls how his father taught him the important lesson on taking every hit in his stride but still carrying on. He was a true role model and a man of #innersteel. We’re here to celebrate all the men of steel we’ve ever known!
Gillette defines inner steel as passion for winning & doing the right thing with integrity. It’s this unfailing courage to go further & to perform the best to one’s ability. We all have a ‘man of inner steel’ in our life. He is someone who teaches you so much about life without actually teaching you. A person who always inspires you to do right. A gentleman for sure but also someone who will fight for his right.
He may be shy, someone who talks less, an introvert even; but he is someone who won’t be afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what’s right. That’s the person we’re looking for. Â He is the one who you would want to be like. He is a Man of Honour.
We’re here to celebrate and recognize all the men in your life who’ve been your role models!
Write a blog post with at least 300 words about your ‘Role Model’. This is your chance to tell us aboutÂ someone who you can rely on and idolize him for his passion for winning or doing the right thing with integrity or something as trivial as helping someone in need, even if it means going out of his way to help a stranger.
He could be anyone, from someone who inspires you to someone who takes care of you at all times. Share the story of A Father figure, A Brother, A Colleague or someone completely unknown to you â€“ your watchman, a newspaper guy, a vegetable vendor? It could be a situation that you witnessed to believe that he is indeed a hero or just his clarity of thought that left you spellbound!
