As many walk in one direction , you must walk in the other. Becoming successful isn’t about playing follow the leader , it’s about being a individual with a passion and having the dedication to succeed. If you only follow your friends then you will forever and always be in there shadow.
All it takes is that one thought which can change everything , having one simple idea to move you onto a new path is the only way you are going to succeed. You follow you lose , it’s as simple as that. No-one will ever know your name and what you have accomplished if you follow someone else.
If you want to be know for the impact you have created then stand the same way as that person spin 180° and start walking. As soon as you do that , everyone will be in your shadow and you will be the one who comes out on top if you are determined enough to succeed.
It has nothing to do with how smart someone is , it’ all about how they use the information they have collected. A successful person takes there time and builds slowly using that information. The person who is going to fail , blows all that information instantly tries to build something and messes is up. Take your time absorb as much information as you can and use it bit by bit and build something up.
Never try throwing it all out there straight away because it will fail , it’s pretty much exactly like when they say it’s a marathon not a sprint , the time you take use to collect all the information and develop the best strategy you can possibly build.
