A few years ago, my mum gave me the best advice I have ever received. ‘Learn the trade, not the tricks of the trade’. Learn success, not the tricks of success. Read biographies, not short articles. Short articles will give you the story of ‘overnight success’, biographies will tell you about the ‘dark’ years of struggle that lead to the overnight success.
Forget the media bias that wants to sell you on the idea of get rich quick and shortcuts. Speak to people who have lived through the ups and downs of life, not just the ones who have hit a home run. It takes time and effort to sculpt a brilliant life, you can’t do it in a day, or a week, or a month, but you can do it by consistently growing each day, each week and each month. Bill Gates got in to computers at the age of 12. He didn’t take a day off from the age of 20 to 30. That’s why he was a billionaire at age 31. Start today on your journey to really studying success. Start today on sculpting a brilliant life.
