Today I wanted to talk about the importance of having an idol.
I occasionally mention in my articles how much I admire and idolize Seth Godin. He’s one of the earliest freelancers who’s been working as a freelancer for many decades.
Godin’s books, courses, and blogs have taught me so many invaluable lessons over the years. And, quite frankly, he’s one of the forces that drove me to take risks and be a better freelancer every day.
Even though I have never met or spoken to Seth Godin, he’s had a massive impact on my career.
I think everyone should have an idol that they look up to. Whether it’s an entrepreneur like Elon Musk or someone you love like your mother, you should have an idol that inspires you to achieve bigger things in your life and career.
Do you have an idol? I’d love to hear your opinion on this as well.
