I am going to let you go into 2019 with the same perspectives that you have been holding on to for years. I have identified 10 things for you to unlearn in 2019 and by doing so you will take your career, your business, and your life to the next level.
1. Six Degrees of Separation
For years you have heard the saying that you are just six degrees from the President, or Michael Jordan, or Elon Musk. That isn’t true anymore. You are more like two degrees away from anyone. You can get in contact with anyone you want because of all the forms of digital communication available. You need to unlearn this limiting belief you need to go through all these channels to get to who you want to speak to at the top. You can reach out to anyone in 2019.
2. Being a Celebrity
Celebrity no longer a big deal like it was in the 80s and 90s. Back then there was no YouTube star or social media influencer. The world can know who you are without having to star in a blockbuster movie. The word celebrity is being replaced with influence. But remember, influence alone doesn’t mean anything. It’s the right kind of influence that makes the difference. Being a positive influencer can get you much further than being a celebrity.
3. The Meaning of Money
If there is one thing to learn in 2019 is how money works and your relationship to it. It is a tool that you need to put to work and lead or else it will push you around and use you. Money loves to be lead. You need to unlearn the idea that you need to always chase Money. If you don’t put money to work, it will go out there and find someone who will put it to work.
4. Political Beliefs
Don’t let any of the media outlets emotionally confuse you in 2019. When hearing different points of view, listen for the logic and the emotion. Don’t be swayed by just one in 2019. The political games are only going to get worse as 2019 and 2020 unfold. Check your blind spots and be open to hearing the whole story.'
5. Meaning of Friendship
Just because you partied hard with someone, doesn’t make them your best friend. Friends support you and back you up as you try to build your vision. When you set out as an entrepreneur, you will see who your real friends are. In 2019 you need to unlearn this idea that just because you spend a lot of time with someone having fun, it doesn’t mean they will stick around when you need them the most. Find those people that raise your principles and values in 2019.
6. Having a Family Doesn’t Necessarily Mean They Will Support You
2019 is the best time to unlearn the myth that your parents are going to support your dreams. It is your job to make them know and see if your dreams are real or not. If you do make your dreams a reality, your family will be proud and impressed. There are countless examples of people in the business world who made it without their family’s support. Now that they achieved success their family is behind them. Your family will respect your choices more if they see you committed to your dreams despite what even they think.
