What Are People Learning From You?

“Every man I meet is my superior in some way.  In that, I learn of him.”

That should probably be one of the Ten Commandments.  It’s true, everybody is good at something… some people are good at business, some people are good listeners, some people are good at seizing opportunities and some people are good at sitting on the couch wasting their life in front of a television.  The key is to recognize that you can learn from every one of these people.  First step is to change your mindset.  Don’t just think, “that person is a great listener”, instead think, “why is that person such a great listener?”  When you know the “why” it opens up the doors to possessing those qualities too.  If it’s a quality you want to have, aspire to learn more about how they got so good and then do more of it.  If it’s a quality you don’t want, you still have to recognize how they got so good at it, the only difference is instead of doing more of it, you have to do much, much less of it!

Recognize that if you want to be the best version of yourself, which I can envision no reason why you wouldn’t want to be, then you must constantly learn.  You can learn from everything in your life, it just depends on how you view your world.   See what people do well and see what people don’t do so well.   Why are they so good?  Why do they suck?  That knowledge, in and of itself, is probably worth more than the money you spent on your college degree.   And it’s FREE!  Everyone can do it!  You just have to change your perception of the world around you.   Ohh, and you have to ask lots of “why’s”!

So for every person you interact with today you have to ask yourself the question, “what can I learn from them?”

Happy Wednesday!
