THREE IN FIVE (59%) AMERICANS CREDIT A CELEBRITY WITH HELPING THEM PUSH THROUGH A LIMIT IN THEIR LIVES.

A RECENT POLL OF 2,000 U.S. ADULTS OVER THE AGE OF 30 FOUND PEOPLE HAVE PUSHED ON THROUGH A TOUGH TIME (44%), TAKEN ON A CHALLENGE (44%) AND IMPROVED THEIR PHYSICAL HEALTH AND NUTRITION (41%) THANKS TO A CELEBRITY ROLE MODEL.

OPRAH WINFREY, DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON, REBEL WILSON AND TYLER PERRY ARE AMONG THE ROLE MODELS WHO HAVE INSPIRED PEOPLE TO PUSH PAST OBSTACLES LIKE FEAR AND SELF-DOUBT. 

HOWEVER, MORE THAN HALF (52%) POINTED TO PARENTS AND IMMEDIATE FAMILY, MORE SO THAN A CLOSE FRIEND (44%) OR FAVORITE CELEBRITY (41%).

CONDUCTED BY ONEPOLL ON BEHALF OF CELL HEALTH BRAND MITOQ, THE SURVEY ALSO FOUND THE BIGGEST BARRIERS TO SUCCESS ARE LACK OF ENERGY (44%), TIME (39%) AND WILLPOWER (38%).

REGARDLESS OF THEIR ROLE MODEL OF CHOICE, PEOPLE’S HEROES HAVE INSPIRED THEM TO STAY OPTIMISTIC IN CHALLENGING TIMES (35%) AND DO THINGS TO HELP OTHERS (34%).
