Success Leaves Clues
Everybody is looking for silver bullet, the tablets, the arch, the answer to all of life’s tough questions. Sometimes the answer has been their all along. We all have our definition of what deem to be successful. Money, cars, houses, bling, life balance, business, titles, a warm fuzzy feeling, whatever it is your feeling of success is yours. Achieving your desired level of success will be challenging, full of hard work, determination, perseverance, and commitment. And you can do it all by yourself or you can learn from those around you.
One of the keys to accelerating your trip to success is to learn from those around you- both what to do and what no to do. I can tell you I learned more my first job about what NOT to do. I learned a lot from my next two jobs about what to do. However, I have learned even more about life from what others have already done. There is a world of books, articles, interviews, videos, and resources from people who have done ‘it’ and done it right. Read them. Learn from them. Emulate them.
Why? Because success leaves clues. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. You may have to add air or patch the wheel, but somebody else figured out that round works better than squate.
I would bet that at some point in your practice career, no matter you job or your experience somebody offered you some advice that you have NEVER forgotten and continue to use every day.
I would also bet that you have taken that advice and shared it with others. You have paid it forward.
Somebody helped you achieve what you have. Now, it’s your turn to do the same.
