The Dark Side of Modeling Success

GLP Riffs PicWhat if one of the biggest pieces of “success advice” was wrong?

There’s a particular strategy that’s become hot in the world of success and personal development. It’s been hailed as the secret to accelerated results and success on a level and at a pace that’d be near impossible without it.

It’s called “modeling.” On the most basic level, the advice is to find someone who has done what you want to do, deconstruct everything they’ve done to get where they are, then do those same things yourself.

Problem is, that can be pretty dangerous advice. It can and often does lead not to success, not to a good life, but to a whole lot of angst, anxiety and failure.

Why that happens and what to do about is what we’re talking about on today’s short and sweet GLP Riff.
