People have seen me as a loser, and I wasn’t making progress in any aspect of my life. After years of trial and error, I’ve distilled it down to a formula, and I want to share the secrets with you. What does it take to surpass 99% of others just by being yourself, and how can you do it in the next 1 to 2 years? Hi there, I’m your host, Sachin Sharma, a seasoned product manager with over 10 years of product management experience. I’ve had the pleasure of guiding over 1,000 aspiring product managers on their journey towards success. With this podcast, I aim to share even more valuable insights on product management to help you excel in your career. If you’re looking to level up your skills and stand out from the crowd, you’re in the right place. Let’s dive into today’s episode without any further delay.

Step 1: Follow Your Heart:
The first step to getting ahead of 99% of others is to follow your heart. Many people live their lives for others and neglect themselves. Just like on an airplane, where you’re advised to put on your oxygen mask before helping others, in life, you must prioritize your own passions and desires. If you don’t find joy in what you’re doing, you won’t get ahead. Learning to say “no” is essential to align your life with your highest values. Ask yourself: Do you love your current lifestyle, your work, your home, and your routine? Aligning with your values reduces stress and leads to fulfillment.

Step 2: Set Goals:
The second step is goal-setting. Goals act as your life’s GPS, providing clarity on the path you want to take. Writing down your goals daily is a powerful tool for success. Few people actually do it consistently. Commit to writing your goals every day for a year, and you’ll automatically surpass 99% of others who don’t.

Step 3: Take Guided Action:
Writing goals daily is important, but action is crucial. Learning every day and applying that knowledge is key to success. The “Golden Triangle of Success” involves learning, doing, and teaching simultaneously. Teaching others what you’ve learned reinforces your knowledge and accelerates your progress.

Step 4: Get a Mentor:
The fourth secret is to find a mentor. Riding on someone else’s success is more efficient than figuring things out on your own. A mentor should be an implementer of knowledge, not just a teacher. Choose a mentor whose values align with yours and surrender to their proven process.

Step 5: Create a Strong Environment:
Imagine a glass jar where you must place rocks of various sizes, from big to small, along with sand. To maximize space, you must place the big rocks first. This jar represents your environment, and setting boundaries and priorities in your environment is crucial. Protect your environment, set boundaries, prioritize your actions, and align them with your goals.

Step 6: Build Skills:
To get ahead of 99% of others, you must create value in the marketplace. This value is derived from your skills. Identify in-demand skills, make a list, and start learning and developing them. Investing in your learning and career growth yields the best returns.
