A lot of times people ask me what my regrets are.
I really only have one.
I wish I had been willing to open up and seek out people who knew more than me.
I never wanted people to know I needed help.
That cost me years of my life in terms of progress.
Here is what I can tell you:
You will never be at a stage where you never need anyone’s help.
I have learned it the hard way.
Obviously, it was my ego getting in my own way.
In the early years of my business I was too proud to ask anyone for help.
I used to think: “I can do it … I don’t need anyone. I’ll figure it out.”
I was wrong.
I drastically underestimated how much progress I could make with the right information through the experiences of others.
Had I kept my ego aside for one moment to ask for help…
I would have learned the answers I needed in 3 minutes instead of 3 years ... and that happened a lot.
Now don’t get me wrong … I am in no way suggesting for you to be dependent on others … I strongly support the idea of handling your shit by yourself.
My point is that you can’t DO IT ALL by yourself.
A circle of like-minded individuals … who are driven and supportive & experienced is extremely powerful and can greatly accelerate your success.
Talk to people.
Network with people.
People who have done the things you wish to do.
Listen to them.
...and most of all...
Contribute to them and help them win when you can.
...and when you have a problem, ask questions.
Trust me on this...
...your ego costs way too much to keep.
