I love the old adage, “learn from the mistakes of others, because life isn’t long enough to make them all yourself.”
If you are coachable and take advantage of the wisdom of others, you can avoid costly mistakes and unnecessary setbacks.
To learn from others, you must listen to them.
To be a winner, you’ve got to think like a winner.
Your thoughts determine your actions, your moods, your self-image, how you present yourself to others and even the words you speak.
The quickest and easiest way to change your situation in life is to change the way you think.
Your thoughts control your destiny!
Top performers set their minds for victory; they set their mind for success.
Setting your mind for success doesn’t happen automatically. You have to constantly tell yourself, “today is a great day, good things are happening and new and exciting doors are opening.” Go out each day with enthusiasm, expecting great things to come your way. You have the power to choose your thoughts and your attitude and, therefore, your success.
Listening is different than hearing. Hearing is the act of receiving sound vibrations by the ear.
Listening is something you consciously choose to do.
Of course, you need to listen to the right people and ask the right questions.
Seek out those individuals who are the highest performers in your area of interest.
Chances are, they are people in your life right now who can mentor you… if you will listen. And there are others that you may not know yet who can help coach you to the next level.
Simply put, if you ask the right people the right questions you will get the right answers. What you do with those answers is up to you.
