A powerful tip on achieving success from Anthony Robbins’ statement in Unlimited Power:
“Modelling is the pathway to excellence. It means that if I see anyone in this world producing a result I desire, I can produce the same results in I’m willing to pay the price of time and effort. If you want to achieve success, all you need to do is find a way to model those who have already succeeded.”
It helps if you know of someone who is successful, someone you admire and respect. Learn from him. A frequent mistake made by many just starting out in a salaried job or business, is the hesitation to ask for help. Most successful people will not turn away someone who sincerely seeks advice.
Finding the right people to ask is easier than you might perceive. Chances are you are only 4-5 contacts away from an experienced professional or veteran in business. It is very likely that these people, in turn, have a wide range of contacts. Perhaps your relative could arrange for you to meet with their employers, or a friend could introduce you to his client.
The objective is not to ask for a job, but to receive a friendly advice concerning your career. Very often, they would be more than happy to help. In fact, more often than not, they are committed to help you work towards achieving your goals.
Do you have role models? Make a list and begin your quest to connect with them.
