Step 4: Growing Your Knowledge
I wish we were born with every bit of knowledge that we need to be successful, but we are not. You need to continually grow your knowledge by learning from others who have achieved what you want to achieve. The powerful part about learning from others is that it saves you a ton of time and money – you do not have to make the same mistakes! There are many trainers and educators out there who can assist you; the critical part is to find the ones who have achieved success in the areas you are looking for advice. I personally have mentors assisting me to grow to the next level of success and I change them every now and again to bring on new mentors who have gone to even greater levels of success.
The challenging part I have both seen and experienced with people is that they ask for advice and attend seminars and trainings, yet they do not implement what they have learned. Implementation of what you have learned is vitally important. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time and money. I have a formula that I like to use; whatever the duration of the training, ensure you put the same amount of time aside after it to implement all the new knowledge, strategies and systems. For example, if you go on a three day course, put aside the three days immediately after the course to implement everything.
