Why Can’t I Just Copy Someone Else’s Formula for Success?

Article provided by Zhang Xinyue of Create Abundance

You may know someone like this. They are completely successful and seem to be leading a happy life but they don’t act like they are truly satisfied. Instead, they seem to struggle and never really enjoy their success.

People like this usually have one thing in common: they aren’t doing what they love. Maybe they took over their dad’s business after he retired. They’re making a good living but still feel empty inside. There’s something missing but they just can’t put their finger on what it is.

Many times, we take up certain careers because a family member urged us to do so. Sometimes, we stumble into a career because it’s convenient. Once you get involved in a particular vocation, it’s hard to walk away. We all have bills to pay and a family to support. Though we must make sacrifices at times in order to pay the bills, there’s nothing worse than seeing someone spend their whole life in a job they dislike.

This is one of the major reasons why you should never follow someone’s formula for success or try to mimic their accomplishments. Walk your own path. Make your own discoveries. This is the way we build the character and the practical skills we will need to achieve our dreams.

Though you can learn so much from successful athletes and entrepreneurs, carve your own path in life. The art of being a successful, admired human being is a lifelong series of winning and losing, succeeding and failing. Each event has its own specific lesson to teach us so determine in your heart that you’ll be open to growing and becoming the best you can be.
