I’ve been thinking about success lately and what it takes to be successful. It dawned on me that one of the key steps is simply mimicking others. Yes we mimick and copy others that we want to be like, hoping that if we copy them, we can be like them.
Mimicking Others To be Successful
So many people write about making money online, but would you really want to take advice for someone who barely can make money themselves? It’s like trying to following advice to lose weight from someone who weights 500 lbs. Why do so many people follow the trends of the celebrities? Because they are successful, people like them, and they want to be successful and well liked also.
If you start mimicking someone who is successful, chances are, you will be successful too.
Surrounding Yourself With Successful People
When you wanted to be successful in speaking Spanish, wouldn’t you want to surround yourself with other people who speak Spanish successfully? They say you become who your friends are, so if you wanted to be successful in something wouldn’t you want to surround yourself with people who are already successful in what you want to achieve?
If your goal is to lose weight, it’s going to be pretty hard to successfully lose weight when everyone around you is gaining weight. Rather, if you surround yourself with skinnier more fit people, you are going to have more chances to become like them. You’ll learn from them, take after them, and see how they did it.
My Personal Successes
It’s helped me to have a few idols which I want to be like. I start to follow by their example and capture some of the successes they’ve accomplished. It’s been a great way to stay focused and keep in mind what I need to do to attain the successes I so desire.
*Keep in mind this works both ways. If you are negative and deemed unsuccessful, are people going to want to hang around you?
