- Be hungry for knowledge
Why is Having an Open Mind So Important?
It’s a form of freedom.
When you open your mind, you free yourself from having to be in complete control of your thoughts. You allow yourself to experience new ideas and thoughts and you challenge the beliefs you currently have. As Alex says, You could have an opportunity right under your nose and miss it if you are not open minded.
Opening up your mind to new ideas allows you the opportunity to change what you think and how you view the world. It gives you the option of creating positive change and stronger results. It allows you to live a more authentic life. With an open mind, you are not restricted by the confines of your own thinking.
Why Should We Follow Successful People?
Sometimes our egos can get in the way. And were too proud to ask other people for help, but it’s critical to your success to learn from people who have already achieved the success you are aiming for. You might be tempted to judge people as not worth listening to for one reason or another, but that can be a critical mistake.
You want to be in proximity to people who are more successful than you on a daily basis. Even if they don’t completely resonate with you now. It’s good to step outside your comfort zone and surround yourself with the unfamiliar.
That’s the beauty of the internet, you can connect with them without always being with them physically. You can listen to calls and hangouts, follow them on social media, start a conversation and get on their mailing lists, and then every few months connect with a mastermind.
Model their habits, listen to their success stories and learn from their failures as well as their success.
Continue to learn and grow, and never assume that you know everything. There is no room for arrogance on the road to success. A successful person is always learning from others who have paved the way.
It’s a continual process. When you feel you have gained as much knowledge from your circle of successful people, expand your social network by inviting even more successful people into it.
Be Hungry for Knowledge
“I’m hungry for Knowledge. The whole thing is to learn every day, to get brighter and brighter. That’s what this world is about. You look at someone like Gandhi, and he glowed. Martin Luther King glowed. Muhammad Ali glows. I think that’s from being bright all the time, and trying to be brighter.” – Jay Z
