The most famous King Midas is popularly remembered in Greek mythology for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold.
Have you ever met someone or read about someone who every time they put their hands to something it turns to Gold. It seems as if they have not failed at anything.
Well, I have learned that if you want to be successful at a particular thing, spend some time with someone who has already done it. You really can't learn about success and then become successful. You have to spend time with someone who has been down the road you plan to walk and ask him about the ups, downs and sideways.
Everything in life is not free. Call up this person, schedule a coffee meeting or even better offer to meet them and treat them to lunch or dinner. Pick their brain, ask them about the their failures, their fears and most importantly their success. I don't believe there is a seminar in the world that would provide the information you could get in spending time with this person over coffee.
Don't be afraid and certainly do not be proud. Most successful people enjoy paying their success forward. They would love to share how they introduced and idea or thought that turned into Gold.
I have spent time with people who can help me excel and learn a few things about my passion. You would be surprise what people will tell you if they know you are serious about your dreams.
I say find an opportunity to sit with someone who has "The Midas Touch" and I promise you it will be the best $7.50 coffee you have ever purchased.
Meditate on that!
