As we go through the various stages of life we look up to our parents, friends and others who cross our paths. When I was a child I looked up to my dad that most. As I have grown older I have crossed paths at various times with others with whom I have looked up to such as pastors, friends or even a boss or two. They have taught me integrity, honesty and how to show a good days work even when I didn't even want to be there. Who do you look up to most in life and why?

well, my dad too had a big effect on how i view life. to add to that, he told me to look up to other people, too. the great people who have changed the world for the better. i'm inclined toward the sciences and look up to the great scientists as people who have greatly changed my perspective on the world. for the early part of my life, i looked up to my mother, too, who introduced to the world of arts and music. i once looked up to religious figures like christ and mary. but those bible scholars with their recent findings have really destroyed the myths that we've attached to those religious figures.
