Other’s Successes – Ways to Leverage Yourself
The fourth form of leverage is Other People’s Successes. You can dramatically improve the quality of your results by studying the successes enjoyed by other people and other businesses. Successful people have usually paid a high price in money, effort, emotions, difficulties and disappointment to achieve a particular goal. By studying their successes, and learning from their experiences, you can often save yourself an enormous amount of time and trouble.
Read biographies of successful people. Study the careers of those who have achieved great success in your field. Seek them out and ask their counsel. You will find that many successful people take great pleasure in helping younger individuals who are sincere about making something of their lives. Their advice can prove priceless. As you become successful yourself, remember the gifts received from those who have blazed the trail before you. Make an effort to give back to those who follow. This will bring you its own store of riches.
