Darren Hardy, the publisher of Success Magazine recently offered a great tip that will help you be more successful in 2014. I began reading Success Magazine when I first started practicing law. I still read it to get ideas like this one.

If you want to multiply your business, concentrate on and strategize about WHO you need to be influenced by, associate with and learn from, in order to accomplish your big business goals for 2014.

I am also reading Sir Ken Robinson’s book: Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life  One great quote from award winning composer, Hans Zimmer:

At the end of the day, what you really want is the guy who inspires you, not the guy who influences you.

WHO are those people for you? Who do you need to learn from? Who inspires you to build your practice?

I was asked who inspired me  a few years ago in: 5 Minute Interview: Cordell Parvin. I will let you read my answer. If I coach you, and I am doing a good job, hopefully I inspire you.

What are you doing to develop and nurture your relationship with those who might inspire you? I bet they want to hear from you. I know that I love to hear from the lawyers I have coached. I enjoy hearing about their successes, and enjoy helping them overcome challenges. Whoever inspires you is likely to feel the same way that I do.
