Without role models how much >inspiration would there be? My philosophy of building effective leadership character in people is to refrain them from looking up to anybody as a role model. Looking up to a role model will limit your aspiration to getting as close as possible to your role model..... but not surpassing him/her. I spoke to a Daytona Beach basketball player who wanted to be like Michael Jordan. I told him: "why not work on being a much better player than Michael Jordan." +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= The state badge comes with criteria that *need* to be met and maintained. If one can not meet and or maintain those criteria, one needs not to carry the state badge. Of course, this is not the case in most of us :-) Many state referees want the 04 badge for reasons other than working the professional game. This approach gave the national badge a lesser and lesser glamour and prestige... which is disappointing young and aspire-to-be-professional referees. DA
