As a Mentor, I’ve come across a large number of people in a huge variety of fields who have been very successful.
My fascination with the topic of success has led me to study countless more peak performers.
One thing I know for sure.
Almost every man or woman who rose to power, attained success or wealth certainly didn’t start out looking like they would achieve brilliance in a single leap.
In fact, many were surprisingly short of ‘ability’
They discovered they could rent it or outsource it.
They found out they could turn to people who had already achieved in order to shortcut their own journey.
You don’t have to do it all, and know it all to have it all.
You can find people who can guide you, cajole you, and prod you in the right direction. It will shave decades off your learning curve, and line your bank account with cash.
The people singing “I did it my way” take too long to work it all out.
Seek out people who can help you excel, and who offer you support while you learn.
“There is an unfortunate myth that success is mainly determined by ‘ability’. But what really matters… is ‘grit’ – an abiding commitment to work hard toward long-range goals and to persevere through the setbacks that come along the way” Janet Yellen – chairperson of the Federal Reserve
