No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals. says Brian Tracy.
We learn from our mistakes even as a child.Nature sure has this way of imparting knowledge on us. But as we progress into adulthood we start running out of time, we cannot afford to learn everything from analysing our own mistakes. It takes ages that way and sometimes somemistakes take ages to recover.
This age in which we live is moving in an absolutely fast pace. As the saying goes, to survive the tiger has to run faster than the slowest gazalle and the slowest gazalle cannot afford to survive if it cannot run faster than the tiger.Its run or perish.Keeping up with the best has become the order of the day.We just cannot afford to make costly mistakes.
But learning from the mistakes,or knowing about the pitfalls and how to avoid them goes a long way in determining one's sucess in life. From what Brian tracy says we can clearly understand we have a tresure trove of knowledge from learning the lives of the great achievers. It is the easiest and the fastest way to achieve sucess. Whatever u decide to become seek out the pioneers in that field who have outlived everybodyelse and follow their life carefully. It would be appropriate to stress here that i dont mean duplicating their lives, what i mean here is take in the essence of their sucess and make it ur own. God makes every human being unique. Inside everyone there is unique greatness, it sparkles out when we just be ourselves.
As Ralph.w.emerson says "Insist on yourself; never imitate... Every great man is unique."
So be true to urselves but never hesitate to learn from great achievers.
