You don’t know everything! Now I may be stating the obvious here, but it is amazing how many business owners, managers & executives I come across that have forgotten this fact. Is it because they are so use to doing everything on their own that their perceived sense of control is limiting their thinking and preventing them from even asking for help?
The most successful & influential people in the world; Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki, Richard Branson & Eckhart Tolle all have a key strategy in common; they have all enlisted the guidance and support of a coach or mentor – many in fact. They set out to learn as much as they could from each person and feverishly sought to continue to grow and learn even more. Their key to success; they simply mastered the art & discipline of personal growth.
I believe to truly reach our potential in business and life we need to adopt an attitude of curiosity. The willingness to seek to extract the juice from the resources we have available such as; books, seminars and conversations with those that are further ahead in their journey’s. To simply listen, challenge our own limited thinking and follow through by applying some of what we learn. It is this final step that the majority neglects. They are inspired to acquire the knowledge but then don’t actually put it into action. The reason; lack of accountability. This is where external support will make all the difference.
Consider that very few successful businesses operate exactly the same way they did five years ago. Why would people be any different?
