Have you every looked at someone you admire- a friend, family member, acquaintance, someone in the news or on TV- and thought, “I wish I could just be like that”? If we’re honest, most of us have felt this way at one time or another, and what we’re feeling is admiration for that person’s success in some arena of life. We want their results.
The truth is, though, that successful people don’t get that way by simply wishing it to be so. The people we admire so much have become successful by building patterns of thought and behavior, patterns that influence the way they think and feel and that lead to concrete action. Becoming this kind of person means developing both a state of mind and habits that lend themselves to success.
In the business world, we often admire the person who earns a significant salary or who has been able to translate a business idea into something the general public understands, appreciates, and feels they need. Learning from these successful people by developing relationships with them and studying their patterns of thought and behavior can help us to discover our own path to success.
This is particularly true for entrepreneurs. Starting a business is difficult, and businesses built by those who have not prepared themselves to be successful are destined to fail. Creating the cash flow to have the freedom to make investments and improve one’s business is a key factor in this success. Having a fluid stream of cash allows you the freedom to make new investments, to retire, or to just enjoy life.
It’s important to understand that real change doesn’t happen in the daily routine of life except for two vitally important interactions: the books we read and the people we meet. Through reading, we interact with the author, changing our thought patterns and developing new ideas for our business or developing new habits. By meeting new people, we widen our network of connections and give ourselves opportunities to see success modeled in different ways all around us.
Through these interactions, we learn a number of things. We learn to develop new habits, such as the best business practices to create passive income and a positive cash flow. We learn to translate our new way of thinking into concrete actions that lead to success. Without these influences for positive change, it’s hard to break out of established patterns and to open our eyes to a new way of doing things.
