Beyond mentors, I believe the best way to learn anything is to get stuck into doing it. Do it until you get good. Fake it until you make it - in Amy Cuddy's own words.
Four-leaf clovers, wishbones, horseshoes, a rabbit’s foot – all symbols of luck, something we’ve been taught to believe some have while others don’t. The truth is, ‘luck’ has a whole lot more to do with being open to the opportunities that come your way. The real challenge lies in being able to recognize exactly which opportunities will get you to where you want to be. Most of the time, it’s a person that will show you which chances to take. Not someone who will tell you what to do, but someone who will guide you, who will keep you on track. In walk the mentor.
