There are countless online courses nowadays that offer great tutorials and endless perspective and coaching on countless professions, subject matters, and sports. Many offer online degrees and certificates which deliver wisdom and knowledge that, unfortunately at course’s end, are not applicable or transferable in execution or real-world situations.
The world’s most elite business people, entrepreneurial mentors, motivational speakers, world champion athletes, Pulitzer Prize winning writers, Academy Award winners and so on, now all have a presence in online courses and tutorials. However, that does not necessarily mean that after you have been exposed to hours of this mentoring and exposure to such elite perspectives of the rich, famous and successful, that you are any step closer to achieving your goals.
For example, I have observed several popular mainstream professional athletes promoting their online courses and workshops to explain what makes them tick and to “make them into a champion”. The sober reality is that once an athlete takes these online courses, they are not enhanced in any way or closer to achieving their dreams and goals, apart from having a heightened sense of perspective and imagination.
