This Problem Is Blocking Your Success

problem

What’s up ? This is THE stephane ANDRE !!! I watched an Olivier Roland’s video and I learned some good stuff.

In the last Leonardo da Vinci’s biography written by Walter Isaacson (who is also the author of the Steve Jobs biography, 2011), we can see that he was an extremely curious man. This curiosity allowed him to explore several different areas, boost his creativity and make a huge contribution to art. But the downside is that he kept changing projects.

Because of this, Leonardo da Vinci left a mind-blowing number of unfinished works of art. There are several scientific fields where he could have advanced the humanity of 2 centuries, if he worked more and published his results.

Attitude

This show us that we all have different attitudes to things that interest us, to our projects. We can explore something because we want to know how it works or master it to improve our lifestyle.

Attitude is very important in life. For example when you do something you like, you don’t have the same attitude as for something you like moderately or not at all. The last project you did, did you give the best of yourself to the end or not ? The question is whether you’re aware of the mission you want to accomplish through the project.

Mission

mission

In a project, the mission, the goal is essential. There are many people around me who say they want to be successful. They say things like : «  Yes, I want to be successful, if I find success around the corner, I would not say no. It would be cool ». But that doesn’t happen like that. To succeed in a mission, it’s necessary to give the best of oneself. And it can take many years, so don’t be naive. With internet, there is a myth that makes everyone believe that in 2-3 years we can be a millionaire, that’s wrong.

When I created my blog, I had friends who also had their blog or YouTube channel, but they all stopped. We didn’t have the same mission and the same attitude when we started. You can see in the top left of my blog this sentence : « I’m building my legacy ». This is my mission.

It’s really good to be curious, but once you’ve found something that interests you, focus on it. Work on this passion in « Guerrilla » mode to develop it, because it will become your main source of income. When I say « Guerrilla », it means that you give the best of yourself. You want to know what skill you have to learn, you want to learn from the best players in the field, you do tests to innovate, etc.

With a definite mission, a « Guerrilla » attitude and patience, you’ll have the success you deserve in your project.

Studying Success

study success

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

Here a quote from Jim Rohn : « Success leaves clues».

In all areas, you can study how others have succeeded.

To understand the concepts of studying success in a good way, I’ll take the magician’s exemple. A magicien make a show in front of thousands of people and what happens is that thousands of people see things that doesn’t exist and doesn’t see things that exists. Thinking about that, we’re always impressed by the magicien show because they do things we have never seen.

How learn

be interested in

Studying success is the opposite. You need to see the things that exist but are hidden and not let you blinded by illusions.

To be able to study success successfully, there are a few tricks :

  • Read biographies or autobiographies of successful people in your field. It‘s even more interesting to read the biography after the person is dead because the hidden elements are revealed.

  • You can meet successful people if they’re still alive to ask questions or participate in a seminar.

Collecting the knowledge of successful people will help you speed up your success.

Techniques subtleties

study success

It’s like when I learned a Pencak Silat’s technique (Indonesian martial art). My teacher showed me a technique and I said to myself : « Oh, it’s easy ! ». After 3 attempts, I realized that it was difficult. I couldn’t perform this technique and I didn’t understand how to do it.

After a few minutes, I asked my teacher how he did that. You have to know ask for help to unlock a situation and not take it as a weakness.

My teacher explained to me that brute force wasn’t the most important element in this technique. You have to know how to use gravity and angle. Click, I had the technique and even I was surprised by the result. But my technique is much less fluid and « aesthetic » than my teacher (it’s nice to see when my teacher does this). I still have a lot of work to do.

Focus on things that exist and stop being disturbed by illusions (newspapers, magazines, gossips, etc). Look for the source by being in direct contact with people who are successful in your field.

The Mistake Of Learning From Mistakes

mistake

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

It’s true that learn from your mistakes is a good method to improve yourself but you can do a huge mistake by doing this. Let me explain to you, the huge mistake is to only learn from your own mistakes. Look the world, we’re billions and there are billions of people who lives before us. As everyone makes mistakes, learning from mistakes of others is also a good strategy.

Mistakes of others

mistake others

Look mistakes from people who are in the domain where you want progress allow you to save time and money. I think we know it but we forget to do it quickly. It’s important to have a strategy to learn from mistakes of others to progress.

I tell you the truth, I also made this mistake several times. Sometimes I noticed that I had a talent and I was alone in solo thinking that I was smart enough to succeed. I thought I didn’t need professors, books, etc. It’s an ego trip, it’s the best method to waste time and almost guarantee failure. Yes, I know there are exceptions, some people happen to be successful in being solitary wolves but it’s clear that they lose a lot of time.

No matter where you want to succeed, there is a golden rule. You need master the basics ! Once you master the basics, you can be creative but not before.

You can try to be creative before master the basics and in 90 % of the cases you’ll fail, it’s true. Look at people who are successful, people who are creative, they were all newbies and they all learned the basics.

Example

Looks at the creative chefs who have restaurants with 3 stars in the Michelin guide. Do you think at the first day in kitchen, they said to themselves : « Go, I make a crazy recipe ? ». No, they learned to cook rice, pasta and they had to learn the basics like everyone else.

There is a company very creative that is Cirque Du Soleil  that reinvented the show. You notice that there is a lot of circus inspiration and other domains. It looks very similar to fusion restaurants. You know this concept where you take the best recipes from 2 countries and you make a mix of 2 to make a menu.

Learn form mistakes of others

biography

First

The simplest method is to read the biography from people who are successful in the field where you evolve. You’ll learn a lot of things, you’ll see that they strarted from nothing and sometimes they made incredible mistakes. Reading biographies helps you avoid making these mistakes.

Second

Be in touch with people who are successful in your field. Don’t absolutely look for people who are at the level where you would like to be, communicate with people who are better than you. Ask them what are the classic mistakes that beginners make.

Put in place a stratregy to know mistakes of others and solutions they used to move forward. You’ll see, this will save you from unnecessary stress.

Attention is a thing to do in addition to attend trainings, see tutorials in video,etc.

What I mean is not be a lone wolf. Connect you, inform you, be curious, attends trainings and find mistakes that you must not make before you make them.
