The way of a fool seems right to him but a wise man listens to advice Prov 12:15
Often we’re too close to our problems to get the proper perspective.
Unfortunately, most of us come from family backgrounds where we were taught to keep our personal business to ourselves. Some of us fear that asking for help will expose our weakness and thus find it hard to trust others with our issues; so we maintain the façade that everything is ok.
Others are so busy that there’s just no one around who can keep up with your schedule and be able to reveal your blind spots. This could leave you vulnerable to the fact that you could be endangering yourself, your family & even your mission.
We need people to speak into our lives with LOVE. Developing this mastermind alliance – as I like to call it (thanks to Robin Sharma) will create the opportunity to cut your learning curve in the game of life. Its important that you pick people you know you can trust to tell you what you NEED, not want to hear.
We may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter – Confucius
