It’s been said the biggest disparity in human-kind is between that which we know and that which we do. I think that’s true. There is know one more guilty of this than me. If you could walk into my office you would be stunned at the amount of educational books, cd’s and dvd’s I have stuffing the shelves. In my dream-world I have read them all and applied all the wisdom from between their pages. In fact, that is my goal!
If you aspire to be a high achiever start by recognizing that “a position” cannot make the leader. The leader makes the position. It’s not what you have; it’s who you are. In order to truly succeed at the highest levels we must continually seek to increase our consciousness and improve our awareness.
Jim Rohn said: “Formal education gets you a job; self-education gets you rich! Profits are better than wages. Wages make you a living and that’s fine. But profits make you a fortune and that’s super-fine!”
These little gems of philosophy from the masters inspired me to become more in my own life. I hope they do the same for you. It’s really as simple as re-allocating your time and becoming intentional around implementing a personal education plan.
I have! I hope you will too!
Onward & Upward My Friends, Lisa
