Successful people are always on the lookout for ways to improve themselves and their businesses. Unfortunately, with the advent of Social Media, there are now an overwhelming number of so called experts promoting the latest and greatest way to take you and or your business to the next level.
Scream Loud Enough
I get the sense that they believe that if they scream loud enough or post frequently enough, people will automatically assume that they are experts.
Rarely however, have these denizens of success achieved the level of achievement they proclaim that you can attain. Just because they say so, doesn’t make it so.
I like to say “that most of the people making money on the internet are those individuals selling you courses on how to make money on the internet”. Buy their book, sign up for their course, and you too will become successful.
Granted, there are some individuals that have actually achieved success in their chosen field and are now sharing and yes, capitalizing on their knowledge they gained over a lifetime and you know what? That’s okay. Unfortunately, they’re in the minority.
Get Experts To Help
A simple and effective alternative, is to find someone in your community that you admire, that has done their time. and is successful. Offer to buy them a coffee or lunch to get some insight into their successes and failures.
It has been my experience that truly successful people are willing to help and share and most don’t care how many likes, followers or friends they have on social media.
Their strength and knowledge comes from experience. Or as an ancient proverb says “Age is the price of wisdom”
