You’ve got to give it to Bert Newton.
Loathe him, love him, or you’re indifferent, it’s not important.
The guy’s like 142 years-old and he’s still on TV!
Saw him on TV the other night and I’ve got to be honest, every time I see him he looks less real, the make-up about an inch thick.
But in all seriousness, old Bert has some secrets up his sleeve worthy of study.
In fact, all of us should study those who have gone before us in our field; those who have sustained their success over a career.
They’re the people I admire; no matter what their industry or profession.
Because most people can achieve success albeit briefly if they try hard enough… especially these days when any fool with an iPhone can get on YouTube and get instant fame and recognition.
But to achieve sustained success over a lifetime is a more difficult task; one few achieve.
I wonder how many of the rising TV stars of today have asked Bert Newton for advice.
I suspect few.
It’s the same in ALL fields. Few people actively search out and study those that came before them. Their lack of curiosity amazes me and it borders on arrogance. Their ignorance of the past highlighted in the mistakes they make, the choices they make.
Question remains: How much do you know about the successful old-timers of your niche?
As I said in a recent newsletter: Folks come and go. True pros sustain their success over many years. The guy’s and girls I study are doing what they are teaching and they’ve been doing it for a lot of years.
That’s where I get my info; that’s who I spend my money on.
What about you?
Love to hear your thoughts.
Until next week, enjoy you ride.
