You Don’t Need To Master Any Skill To Succeed (With This Mix And Match Approach)

With the digital entrepreneurship allowing everyone to achieve worldwide success, stories and myths on how to achieve it have been the most popular reads. The formula seems simple – you find your driving passion and you put enough hours of hard work into it, and success is inevitable. This sounds like a good plan, until you actually start implementing it. You can soon discover that you cannot always find that one passion, or skill, that makes you superior, and better than most people. You can easily get discouraged once you start your research and find that whatever it is you are good at, there are so many people that are at least ten times better than you. That’s where the plan tends to fall apart.

Why the “traditional” approach doesn’t work

The reason many people give up or never sum up enough courage to start working towards their idea of success, is because the “traditional” approach is flawed from the start. Firstly, so many people buy into the idea of one true purpose or passion they need to fulfill and therefore, they give it too much significance. So many times they are reluctant to even try, because their initial idea doesn’t seem great enough. This results in them not being aware of the many amazing opportunities that can eventually lead them there, since they are blindly chasing the one big dream. Additionally, the pressure of dedicating all of our time to developing and nurturing that one skill that separates us from the rest of the world, becomes too big of a burden for many of us, leading us to doubt whether we have any skill or passion at all.

The Mix and Match Approach

Yet, the success game can be quite easily achieved only if we take a different perspective. As it was brilliantly presented in an article by a successful entrepreneur Oliver Emberton, there is a different, much more effective approach that guarantees success. Guarantees, yes, since it has been derived by analyzing the road to success of some of today’s most successful people. The approach suggests not being focused on having the one skill that can set you apart from everybody else, but the trick is to combine a couple of complementary skills that don’t need to be perfected, in order to achieve great things in any field that you choose.

The author suggests taking an objective analysis of the work of some of the most successful people in any area, and you will be able to realize that for most of them, their extraordinary talent is not the sole reason of their mega success. Almost always there is a combination of a few key skills needed for success in the niche.

If we take a look at the music industry, so rarely can we see the best singers to be the most successful ones. More often, the truly successful ones are those who have optimal singing potential, combined with great self-confidence, attractive personality, good looks, great sense for business, and so on.

How you can implement the approach

The same goes for any field you may want to try your luck in. For example, if you want to achieve great academic success, skills that you need to possess don’t need to include having a particularly high IQ, instead, you would want to test yourself for organizational skills, time management, hard work, motivation, and perseverance.

Therefore, no matter if you are just starting out as an entrepreneur, or a new face at a large corporation, or you have been looking for your great business breakthrough for quite some time, you might want to try the mix and match approach before you start your journey to success. Make sure to analyze the field of your choice and come up with the mix of skills needed to be developed in order to achieve great success. Once you are confident enough about your abilities, it is time to go for your dreams.
