"I think I'll try it their way."

We should set our own courses and follow our own paths...most of the time. But sometimes the best move is to eliminate all the trial and error, eliminate all the angst, and simply adopt what made someone else successful.
Try it. Pick someone who has accomplished what you would like to accomplish and follow that path.
Confident people are able to recognize excellence in others, because it does take self-confidence to admit someone else is smarter, better, faster, etc. than we are. Don't feel the need to reinvent perfectly good wheels.
