I have made a point of learning from everyone at any time. An area where I have learned more than I could have imagine are from kids. They are like walking, talking mirrors providing real time feedback. From evaluating my driving skills to mimicking my communication style they are a non stop source of feedback. What would you pay to have 24/7 coaching? No one needs that kind of coaching time, but what if you needed it at a time when most coaches are not available? Take advantage of those around you willing to teach you, willing to mentor you, willing to coach you. There are more than you might think…they might even be living in your own house now. Remember, its all about awareness…no one is an expert based on age; expertise is what someone does well. My kids can negotiate with the best of them, they can control their emotions in many (not all) situations, and they are fearless.
What if adults grew their emotional control, negotiation skills and fearlessness from where it was as kids?
I submit to you….we would each be far advanced from our current state.
Grow your awareness, take note of daily lessons…they are all around you. Prepare for that next choice.
See you next time….
