They say imitation is the highest form of flattery.
Now, I don’t know many people who actually enjoy being “copied”, but why not?
It shows that someone admires you so much that they actually want to change their life to become more like you.
So if you admire someone and want to reach a certain goal or just do something like a role model of yours it would make sense that you would mimic them in some way, whether on purpose or not.
The people who inspire others are usually successful in some way or another, and most successful people have many of the same traits or habits.
They set goals.
They have a plan.
They are dedicated.
They work hard.
They stay focused on the end goal.
They continue to work hard.
To be like someone you will probably have to adopt some of their habits.
ACT LIKE THEM.
Do what they do
Just sitting there, wishing you were them or being jealous of the results they’ve achieved through their own hard work will not get you any closer to being more like them. In fact, it will probably push you further and further away because while you are either complaining or sitting in envy they aren’t even paying attention to the negative energy, they’re just putting in work. Most admirable people are so busy working towards their own goals that they don’t have time or notice what other people are doing, unless it will help them reach their goals.
The reason why most people don’t achieve their goals is because they are too busy wishing they were someone else and that these things would just happen to them, the way they just “happened” to the successful people. But, people who achieve true success are not lucky, they are driven and earn that success. The reason it may seem like luck to outsiders is because they don’t highlight the hard times and all of the blood, sweat and tears that got them to their end goal, probably because they were too busy putting in said blood, sweat and tears to tell everyone about it all. But just because you don’t see their struggle doesn’t mean that it wasn’t there.
Stop being jealous of other people’s success if you aren’t wiling to put in the same effort as them.
So when I say “be a copy cat”, I’m not telling you to go out and copy what they wear, or find out their favourite place to eat and die your hair their colour. No no no. I still want you to be your own person.
I’m telling you to copy their habits.
Put in the work and dedication that they do.
It may take some time but your hard work will pay off, as long as you stay focused and stop talking about other people and start focusing on yourself.
Trust the process and you will reap the rewards.
