I watched an Olivier Roland’s video and I learned good stuff.
This trick is one of the fundamental principles for success. If you want an exceptional result, you need to have an exceptional behavior.
Having an exceptional behavior means have a different behavior from the majority of people. Think about it, if you do the same thing as the others, you will have the same results as the others, it’s simple and logical.
Look at this example. Imagine that you’re doing karate and you want to become world champion :
Here are 2 choices :
You’re looking for a teacher who has already been world champion and you use a technique that is different from others.
You learn karate with people doing karate for fun. These people don’t have the ambition to become world champion.
Another example. Imagine that you want to have financial independence and that in your environment, there is no one who has financial independence.
Here are 2 choices :
You’re looking for a person (on internet) who is financially independent and you use a technique different from the others.
You listen to advice of people around you who don’t have financial independence.
We agree. In both cases, you’re more likely to succeed by looking for people who have already accomplished your goal. It’s interesting to see that the majority of people (my parents, for example) criticize people who are successful, but that shouldn’t stop you from listening to and using the techniques of people who are successful.
My opinion on
I think you noticed but everyone has an opinion on everything. Even a person who doesn’t know anything about a subject, likes to give his/her opinion. Is it in human nature ? I don’t know but to be successful, you need to learn how to sort out the good advice that will help you to reach your goal and the bad advice that will slow you down or block you.
I’m not going to lie to you, when you start, it’s really hard to sort out the good and bad advice. To get the best of luck from the start, I advise you to listen to people who have already accomplished your goal and not others.
There is a method that is cool, it’s good skepticism. You’ll see, it’s easier to understand the difference between good and bad skepticism than a good and bad hunter.
Bad skepticism is when you see something that is too good to be true and you say : « Pfff, it’ a scam » or « No, it’s not for me » and you’re not going to do anything.
Good skepticism is as astonished as the bad skeptic, but he/she wonders : « Is it going to work with me ? ». Good skeptic thinks like that because he/she knows that the only way to know if it’s true is to test it yourself. He/She tests it by doing a simple experiment to see if it’s true or if it’s a scam.
I know we can’t absolutely test everything because sometimes we don’t have the time or the material but, it’s this concept that I share with you. When you have a project that you like, see if you can test different techniques or methods. Test different techniques or methods that have the potential to give you a lot of result with simple experiences.
With this article I want to motivate you to connect with people who already accomplished your goal. With theses people, you can advance your project faster by avoiding making fatal mistakes. It’s true that it’s easier to connect with people around you but you may stagnate. Be persistent and patient to connect with people who have already reached your goal and who are still progressing.
It’s extremely motivating to be surrounded by people who are always progressing.
