Knowledge is power.
But every successful person can't be a role model and following blindly to people is also problematic. Many people look successful but are involved in illegal activities. So we should follow a person who is not only successful but also morally strong and honest. Earning money alone can't be called a successful person, do consider the moral obligation of a successful person and there is nothing wrong in getting influenced by a person who is legally and morally strong.
Believe in the existence of God the super power.
