The power of emulation.
Today we are going to discuss how other people can boost your motivation and take you to new heights. Why is it important to surround yourself with the right crowed and the immediate impact it has on your productivity.
Today I am pumped up. It's crazy. I am absolutely pumped up.
Yesterday I got to see my friends Connor and Ellen and that's what I want to talk to you about because you know when I told you that your environment is important right. And if you hang out with the right crowd then it's going to catapult you to what you want to do.
When you hang around that kind of people then you get all that motivation and stuff. So I hadn't seen them in two years because they were here two years ago and then they left and they were traveling.
It's really cool because these people didn't know anything about online like two years ago when they started and now they're doing really well. And it motivates me to do all my stuff and focus on what I want to do because right now they're focusing on something which is the hardest thing to do right. Focusing on one thing.
Because you have a shiny object syndrome and you're pulled in for from every possible direction and are trying to stay on course. They just stay in their lane and don’t move. And I admire that with them.
I was waiting for them because there are things that I can learn from them that they were way better way better than me at doing because they specialize in this thing and I was very happy to see them and it turns out that they live like two minutes away from my house. So it's pretty cool.
The power of emulation
So I wanted to tell you that if you have jealousy and the competition and the bitterness and the envy and stuff like that. You know that people have when they see someone making it and having success. Right. But it's really not like this. I want you to be in an environment where you have people you can talk to and they're doing something cool and it's not competition, is just motivation.
This is a very healthy motivation that you get from people around you who are putting in the effort and getting out there and getting shit done right. So that's the environment I like. That's why I love meeting entrepreneurs and stuff because they give me that fire. And don't be the one to extinguish other people's fires.
So it's more about putting the effort in and basically sticking to their guns. So that's the right motivation that I need when I see someone like this. So they set up a really huge target for themselves and they're going to do everything to achieve this goal and they stay on that lane. And these are the examples you want in your life.
So you know again it doesn't mean that you have to ditch all your friends and be like do you're a loser. There is a certain part of the motivation that comes from your outside environment as well. If everybody around you is you know is putting in the effort and being like super happy, super pumped up and stuff then you're going to be like dude yeah I need to start something you know not out of jealousy or anything but just by emulation.
That's the term that I was looking for emulation right. So everybody is inspiring one another to do greater things.
So what I got from them yesterday was you know focus. Focus on one thing, one goal you want to achieve and use other people’s efforts and success as your motivation.
