Life and success take growth. If you have always lived a basic life and always "just made it" through then it's important that you see and understand that it takes change to be successful.
If you have always had a certain mentality then you must shift your mind to think in a different way, to see that you must grow by changing what you do and how you react and how you handle certain things.
If you want to be successful in life you must be teachable. Why? Well someone did it before you, there is someone who has done it before you. You have to be able to learn from their successes and failures. In my business (ItWorks) I just started within the year and yes I learned a lot in the year I have been with the company BUT I do not know everything. So each week when it is time for training I make sure that I am on to learn from the leaders who went ahead of me. Many of these leaders are you her than me and I still learn from them because they hVe done this before me and they know what works and what doesn't and as leaders they teach newbies how to avoid the things that they have already learned do not work and they also guide you into the path of the things that Do work. If you are not teachable and you get set in the ways that.... Oh I can do whatever I like the way that I want to and it doesn't matter.... WRONG.
We can ALL learn from each other. The way that God made us we all have different talents and abilities we can share with the world, with others, and we are to learn and then teach others ourselves. Each one teach one and we must always live this way. Never get to a point where you foolishly think that you know it all and do not need to learn anymore. Humble yourself and decide that you want to understand what you can do to make life better for yourself and for those that come behind you. Be a leader and lead by example.
In order to be one the person we want we MUST shed the person that we are and this is what builds the new you... Each day we learn more and apply it..... The new things we learn that work we pass on and life is teamwork.
Decide it's time for you to REALLY change, no more excuses
