Modelling, not the version by the man who successfully patented Blue Steel, provides proven steps to success.
“I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.” Derek Zoolander
Time is precious, so why not find a quicker route to achieving your goals?
By emulating the success of what has gone before, you can shortcut the longer road and accelerate the journey.
That is, model yourself on successful people. Copy their habits and daily rituals. Tap into their mindset, and change your thinking. Learn from their mistakes so that you can minimise your own.
The signposts to success leave clues.
You can save time and energy by studying the clues. No need to reinvent the wheel.
Anthony Robbins summarises this concept perfectly:
“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results.”
Two great modern day artists are also renowned for borrowing their inspiration. Pablo Picasso said that good artists copy, great artists steal. Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino said, "I steal from every movie ever made."
Study the past, find a mentor and learn from the best. If you want to accelerate the path to ridiculous success, try modelling.
