Wishing for what you want is not going to help you get it.
To get what you want in life you need a proper strategy and that’s more than having a good intention and willpower.
So how do you find the right strategy?
Well, you don’t have to try too hard. There’s enough history for whatever it is that you’re after. You just have to look around you and see who’s done it before.
One of the simplest ways to do that is finding a role model. You need to find an individual who TODAY is living the life you want to live TOMORROW.
Ideally, this person is a few years ahead of you and has already been through most of the ups and downs of the same journey as you.
This person doesn’t not always have to do the same work as you do but both of you tend to work for the same powerful purpose.
You could both have goals like having more free time, making more money, getting a healthier body or a more creative mind.
Most successful people share their stories by leveraging their personal brands which makes it easier to learn more about them.
By following their steps you get to notice a few patterns in how they talk or how they do things. There’s a reason behind everything they do.
For example, if you want more free time in your life, you need to find a role model who lives that life. Someone whose life is full of systems and automation.
The good news is, most of the job is done once you know who exactly that person is.
The rest is analyzing and experimenting. But your chance of success is much higher because of the track record of your role model.
You should read their books, watch their videos, listen to their interviews, do whatever you can to learn the most you can.
And when the time’s right and you have something to offer, you should look for opportunities to create value for them.
By being helpful and creating value for your role model you get to learn even deeper. You become a part of their lives and the learning becomes second nature.
Their success rubs off of you and that’s the best way to get everything you want in life. Because no matter what you are after someone has it now and is willing to share it with you.
What could hold you back may be your ego who wants to figure everything out on its own. But you know what?
Don’t let that happen. Accept some people may know more about something you want in life. They have tips and strategies you can follow.
They’ve learned the hard way so you don’t have to.
Don’t be stubborn. Nail down what you want. Find yourself a role model and take action while following.
While it’s important to follow some basic rules, you don’t always have to do everything the way they do, you can add your own spices.
I hope this has helped you realize how much power you have in your hands to get everything you want in life.
