There are 3 major ways in which we learn.
Audibly, Visually, and Kinaesthetically.
The sum of all these methods of learning at play is what we’ll refer to as learning through Osmosis.
Osmosis is the dominant factor that contributes to effective learning and is prevalent throughout nature.
When humans grow up they are constantly learning from fellow surrounding humans without even recognizing it.
When it comes to success, the same form of osmosis is at play for better or worse.
Learning through mentors moulds you through simply the act of being around them.
You pick up all those little details of what ultimately makes them so successful.
You ‘steal’ their secrets.
as Picasso said: “Good artists copy, Great artists steal.”
So who are you spending your time around?
As a general rule, you obviously can’t spend all your time with mentors.
Life needs balance.
A split of 33% is ideal.
33% with mentors, to learn from and grow into the success of where you want to be.
33% of the time with peers, the people on your level/journey who can be a good friend.
33% with people below you, to humble you, provide confidence, and to mentor yourself.
Half of success is just showing up.
Make sure you're showing up around the right people.
