Reading Robert Shemin's Book titled "How come that idiot's rich and I'm not?", I quote from page 82:
It is not a new thing, you have been asked several times to identify your role model. I want to ask you to only go a step further, critically study your role model and copy what he or she does for a while. I guess the results you see from your efforts will determine if you should continue or not.
All I am asking you to do is to act as if you have made it in that field you wish to play, see yourself doing all the things you admire in your rolemodel/mentor till you eventually get there.
Afterall, if they have become successful, so can you!
