The ‘Successful’ Myth

How often do you see someone who is successful and wonder how they got there?

Have you fallen for the Successful Myth? The Myth that everyone, can be as successful as everyone else, at any given task given; Time, Skills, ‘Motivation’, ‘Perseverance’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Willpower’? The Myth that the reason you aren’t ‘Successful’ is that you just aren’t following the rules, the guides?

  • Do you think that emulating the steps of someone successful will make you successful?
  • Do you listen to people tell the story about their success and how you just need to do X,Y and Z and you will be successful and think they are right?
  • Do you read biographies of successful people for tips on how to make it big time?
  • Do you think you just need to grind through what you are doing because that’s what a ‘Successful’ person would do?

If you say yes to any of these, then you have fallen for the Successful Myth. Yes seeking out these people for guidance is correct, but using them as the only way is a mistake and you may not realise that until it is too late.
