I think we can learn from a great entrepreur, but never imitate a people. Becasue the ability and opptunity of people are not the same. Imiatting a people may also birng you some trouble . No success can be imiated. What's your opinion?
I always promote people doing what they love and getting paid for it. I have found my passion in my blog and it looks like you have found your passion too. Great for everyone!
Yes martin, i fully agree you that we should not do copy of any people because every person has unique personality, unique skills and no one can become "Warren buffett" and no one can become "Silvestor". The way of success is in yours, so do what your soul says. Success will be yours surely.....
Succeeding to one's goal or achievement is not that easy to achieve. Just do your best and give your 100% percent in everything. Don't ever give up even if you encounter failures and mistakes. Stay strong and continue to fight for what you believe and success will be achieved.
I think success is imitatable (Which is a word I'm making up right now).
Yes you can learn from people but if you emulate the people you learn from, you get the results they get. I don't just mean their financial strategies. I mean their thinking habits and character traits.
Of course you will be your own version. But you can "imitate"success.
Sam Walton is one of the best examples...
He used to fly over cities and if parking lots were full, he would land the plane and go and see what it was that brought in so many customers.
He imitated the bits and pieces from everyone else that worked and created the largest fortune in the world. If his children pooled their money, they would CRUSH Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
I think the problem with imitation is that the skills that others use and possess, may not and usually are not the same skills and strengths that you, as an entrepreneur, may be willing to bring to the table.
It's better to seek inspiration from business greats versus walking in their shadow - really, we should focus on building up our own strengths rather than building up theirs.
