hi friends whom do u consider your ideal person? who is the person/personality that u try to follow? whose principles do u apply in your life?? Whose vision do u think is the greatest one?? I follow principles of Abraham Lincoln. He was a person who rised from the rags and went on to become the president of U.S. He was the person who changed the way people looked towards black people. He was the one who was not an eloquent speaker by inception but he went on to become one. In India I think Mahatma Gandhi was one such person who stood out from the crowd. He and his principles led to the freedom movement of such a force that led the British to leave India. His principles as commonly known as "Gandhigiri" after "lage raho munnabhai" has changed the face of indian youth. So what do u think? Who is your ideal person in life whom u would like to follow and adopt his principles as the guiding light of your life???

Gee, that's a tough one. I try to emulate my mom in many ways, mostly in being a good mother. And, as a Christian, Christ is my highest role-model. Other than that, I just try to be the best person I can be!

no its not a tough one we all follow some one or other for our different values and virtues we all learn from others the way they behave,the way they speak, the way they talk to someone, even walk, and of course the way they dance so u can have more than one ideal person it is perfectly ok

As you are from India, you must have heard about Brahma Kumaris.I find the personality of Brahma Baba the founder of the said organization ideal.He uplifted the status of women and was fair to all.Anyone who know him would say that indeed he was a great man.He surrendered everything to God for the service of humanity.You may log on to www.bkwsu.org to know more about this wonderful soul.

thats a good joke. keeping buddha half way and then giving bush the half credit will bring in the fight within. buddha will be silent and then bush will invade the other half and then this means that giving full to bush.lol thanx for replying.

thats good that u follow a person's good qualities. many of us see them but we hardly try to iplement in our lives. if we learn from other's mistakes then we will have to suffer very less as we will not repeat the same mistakes and we can be a very good person. so we should ideally implement the good qualities of various persons which can be imbibed in our lives and then we can be as good as the person himself.

My ideal person is my grandma. She is my role model. She has dedicated her life to all her relatives. Her lovelife was not good but she took care of us her grandkids from when we were small. My mom moved to the US and she became responsible for us. She taught us a lot of things especially house work. And up to this day she is taking care of my sister's kids. She helps me out and other relatives who are always in need. She is one of a kind because she rarely thought of herself first. I've always been much closer to my dad and only recently did I realize her worth. I hope she has a long life so I can show her how much I love her. I can't believe it took me 32 years to tell her I love her and thank her all the time.

that is a good thing to know that u realised her worth. this happens to all of us. we take things for granted and then we don't care for the other person's feelings. but when we r separated from that person then only we get the true meaning of being associated with that person. so u realized that being with ur grandma is very much appreciable. never let her hurt and always care for her. thanx for the response.

Your question is little bit dificult for me because I admire so many successful people. Those who came from adverse backgrounds and with great morrals. If I go on rating their personality I feel guilty because as such I am very very negligible creature to comment or dare to grade them. The list is so long that I can't even mention one because that makes a partiality with others. In short I like all of them who cared mankind, were social, sacrifised their life for the sake of people. You will be more successful if you push yourselves here as below.... http://www.payposter.com/index.php?refer=godbole

u r right. this is an ever increasing list. we have different ideals at different ages. the point u have stated that u r very negligible is not true. u can change the world if u wish to do the same as the gr8 persons have done. if u have the dream and desire to achieve to ur goal then no one can stop u. so u ideally should have an ideal whom u can follow and whose virtues u can implement in ur life and even u can be successful. actually the matter is that we can learn from their mistakes and we will not those mistakes in our life and follow their principles in life to achieve sucsess.
