“None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”

– Thurgood Marshall

“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”

– John F. Kennedy

Two weeks ago, Ordinary Girl wrote her Motivation piece on Role Models and I thought that this would be a great subject for a prompt.  It’s very hard to continue to expect perfection in a world where mass information gives everyone’s secrets away.   That being the case, who do you look to when you need some direction?

Suggested Prompts:

*What is it that you look for in a role model?  Do you hold politicians, teachers, and religious leaders to higher standards than others?  Who has changed the way that you look at, and interact with, the world?

*Write a short story, poem, or share a picture or song that talks about your feelings on role models.

*Any inspired offering that somehow relates to the idea of the molding of your personality.

Dungeon Prompts are meant to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit.  Explore the recesses of your mind and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering.  Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.

To participate, all you’ll need to do is:

1.            Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”

2.            Link back to this page in the body of your post *

3.            Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**


*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.

**If you don’t have a blog please feel free to join the discussion in the comment section.
