Stop worshiping at the feet of idols and superstars.
The path they took to get to where they are won’t be your path. Too much has changed in the meantime and you are too different.
Don’t try to follow the path of those that are 1000 steps ahead of you.
They are good for inspiration and you can surely learn from their wisdom, but they tend to gloss over the early steps that propelled them forward.
Instead, look for the people who are only a dozen steps ahead.
Connect with them, Dissect their approach, ask them 1 million questions and learn from them.
You’ll quickly learn the parts of the strategy that work for you, the ones that don’t, and the opportunities that will help you grow together.
Don’t just fill your feed with gods and goddesses.
Find big brothers and sisters and then race to catch up to them.
