Without mentors and consultants …
Without education and the experiences of others …
Repeating past mistakes and taking nose-dives in personal and business relationships keep you in a defeated and hopeless state of mind. Understanding that there isn’t a person on the planet who has it “all together” is a nice reality check.
Every individual has unique gifts, talents, and skillsets that are very easy to them, but difficult to another. Accepting that what you do easily is a wonderful thing is loving yourself and honoring the strengths that are resident in you. Your strengths are your storehouse and what you share with others.
Obviously, you can’t have it all. Those areas where you are weaker, are areas that someone else is stronger in. Ask questions, read books, got to classes, or just listen better to those around you. Find someone who is doing something really well that you’d like help with, and pay attention. Ask questions. Listen closely.
Be what you wish someone else had been for you if you feel that you’ve not had a mentor in your life. Be the first that you know!
There’s an old saying, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” When you are teachable – the answer comes. Be teachable and be willing to reframe your perceptions on a few things – you’ll be amazed at what you can learn, and will wonder why all these mentors and teachers have suddenly “come out of the woodwork” to answer your questions!
Doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results is the definition of insanity. If what you are doing right now, isn’t working for you – STOP DOING IT. Ask a question. Ask another question and then ask a better question! The answer is right in front of you – or beside you, or behind you, or next door. Move throughout your day expectantly. Expect the answer to come! Not only will it come, but it will also reveal an abundance of solutions and possibilities which will stretch you into abundant thinking. Take action … and be willing to share your journey with another.
