Learn From Role Models
First you have to do research.
So you shouldn't be interested in people who have been successful because they've been lucky, like people who have been born into great wealth or married into it.
Leave that to the supermarket tabloids. You should be looking for the people over who have become successful through their own achievements and hard work.
Role models don't have to be celebrities. In fact, it's probably better if they're not. I hope that your old models are people you know, people whom you know up to daily for specific traits, not just because you admire their talents.
These are the ones who can provide constant inspiration and wisdom as you work toward your goals.
You should also look at role models who are at the same stage you are so that you can better measure yourself against what they're doing.
For instance, who are the people in your age group who are more successful than you and why? Yet role models can change by the month. You always have to study people, studying what works and what doesn't, always looking for ways to make yourself and your team more successful.
There is no overestimating the value of this. Because it's very simple: If we are not getting better, we are getting worse. There's no staying the same. So you should be constantly looking for new role models who might teach me new lessons.
So when you go looking for role models you are not looking for people who do things the easy way. You're not looking for people who take shortcuts. You are looking for people who inspire you to seek new heights.
