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.

Imitate Before Innovate

imitate before innovate

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

A lot of beginners make the mistake to reinvente the wheel because they don’t want to follow an exemple of someone. They tink because human beings are unique, they must create something original. It’s not wrong in the principle but it’s wrong in the process

Here the story of 2 friends of Olivier Roland.

Study case

These 2 friends created a blog about personal development for men. This blog worked good and they made the first product 1 year after the blog’s creation. They each earn around EUR 1000.- per month. It was cool because they were students and the blog had more success.

The problem is that one of the two partners got big headed because of success. He wanted to create a product totally different, a different format and break the rules.They launched the second product and unfortunately it was a huge failure.

The partner who wanted brea the rules took this failure personally and he decided to abandon the blog. The 2 friends didn’t find a agreement and they stopped the blog.

Analysis

Here a sad exemple of a company that had a great potential. All because of arrogance. Sometimes we must understand we don’t know everything. There are things we don’t understand how they work but they are efficient. Be skeptical. Test and see if it work for you.

In our case, this guy tested a new model and he abandoned because he took it personally, too much ego ! It doesn’t matter, don’t feel guilty. It’s normal to have failures but at the beginning imitate instead innovate.

You can study how successful people you admire made. You can imitate some strategies, techniques and methods they used. Once after you reaching a certain point, you can add your personal touch, only at this moment

Do you know a case where the  arrogance destroyed the potential ?
