Success is not finite. There is not a limited amount of spots at the summit. Just because multiple people are at the top of the area you wish to be successful does not mean there isn’t any room for you too. Sometimes we can fool ourselves into this false belief, when in reality, it actually makes our climb to the top easier.
Their success is your case study. Ask them for advice, learn their patterns, and study their disciplines. Use their journey and words of wisdom as a guide to help you overcome similar mistakes or avoid making them in the first place. Doing these things can allow your march to the top to not only be smoother, but quicker and easier.
Every successful person was once where you are now, not only does this make their advice valuable, but it proves that your success is possible too. Become a student of other people’s success, and you just might find yourself one day at the top of the mountain standing shoulder to shoulder with them. Work hard, work smart, work consistent, and everything is possible.
