Surround Yourself With Brilliant People

Brilliance isn’t born,

it’s something we create and learn.

The best way to be remarkable at something — anything — is to learn from someone who already knows it and has mastered it.

That’s why ‘they’ tell you you’re the accumulation of the people you surround yourself with.

If you want to be brilliant, Surround yourself with brilliant people.

We can also learn from masters remotely.

Who’s great at X and what can I learn from them?

The best photographers, musicians, writers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, designers, creators, athletes, …?

What can I learn from their work, strategies, way of thinking, talks, videos, courses, art, habits, clients, character traits, goals & dreams ..?

Our own brilliance is a combination of all the remarkable people we spend time with and those that have come before us who made waves in the status quo.

And from that combination we find our own style. Our own take.

Our uniqueness.
