I'm back in good old NY. I must say it was very hard to leave Aruba. Quite frankly, we were sad to come home. What can I say? Aruba is a beautiful island with a nice mix of people living together in harmony. It's definitely now one of my top 3 islands. If you haven't visited Aruba, you should check it out. I'm confident you'll love it. But I must warn you. You may not want to come back.
Here are some pictures of my trip:
Hope you enjoyed the pics. Time to move on to my weekly babbling words of wisdom.
A lot of times people ask me how did I become so successful? Most of my loyal subscribers know that a great deal of it is because of mind set, education, taking action, hard work and persistence. It's a formula I'm constantly shoving down your throat because I know it works. However there is another little secret to my success I rarely mention but is just as vital. I'm a big copy cat.
Here's what I mean. There are always people who have far more knowledge and success than you in certain areas. A lot of time you find people who are envious of others in these situations. You and I know them as haters. They get angry when others are doing well around them.
Not me, when someone is doing better than I in a given area, my ears perk up. I want to listen to what they have to say. My goal is to learn as much as I can so I can try my best to achieve the same results if not better. I have no problems copying folks that are successful provided it's nothing shady.
That's why when I wanted to learn how to become a super affiliate marketer, I purchased courses, ebooks and learning material from folks that were doing better than me. Right now I'm in the process of trying to purchase a home. I'm heavily relying on my uncle-in-law for advice because he's a contractor that has purchased many homes. When I was growing up and played basketball, I always tried to play the guys better than me because I knew that was the only way my game would improve. These are all examples of me being a copy cat in a good way.
My logic is why re-invent the wheel? If someone has found the formula to success then it only makes sense to model my behavior after them or learn from them. Now with that said, you should always add your own flavor to anyone you may model yourself after. For instance Coke and Pepsi are pretty much the same drink. But they both have variations to their drinks. You try to pass off a Coke to an avid Pepsi lover like my wife and she may spit that coke right in your face. (Oh yes her Pepsi senses are that serious. lol) That slight difference can be huge to certain people.
So always keep that in mind when trying to mimic the success of others. Part of their success is based on their unique attribute. Be sure to bring yours to the equation.
Well now you know another one of the keys to my success. Hopefully you'll run with it instead of hate on it. lol
With that in mind, you may want to check out AOL's Meet the New Young Millionaire article. I read it and felt very inspired to push myself. Don't let the age of these millionaires deter you if you're older. See past that minor detail. Instead focus on the fact that these are just regular people that had simple ideas. But unlike most of us, they had the balls to back them up with action. As a result they've become very successful while others just dream or yammer about it.
Even if your aspirations aren't as grand as becoming a millionaire, identify something that you would like to achieve. Then find the people who have achieved this goal and try to mimic them. After all you already know the results you've been getting doing it your way. What do you have to lose trying it another way? Your results may actually vary, for the better.
Let it marinate.
In any event, enjoy this week's lead recap.
