We’re going Back-to-School! Well actually, we’re talking about lifelong learning. We’re in the middle of a ten-post series.
Today we’ll talk about four great places to learn how to reach BIGG success.
I’m sure the first one is right where you’re at: BIGG Success! What better place to learn how to reach BIGG success?
But Mary-Lynn, by definition, if they’re on our site, they’ve already reached BIGG success. Why would they need to learn how to reach BIGG success? They already know!
Whoa! If you’re going to hit me with logic, I don’t want to chit chat!
Hey, now I know we’ve been hanging out too much. You’re starting to throw my Dean Martin lines back at me!
Okay, enough chit chat. Here are the four great places to learn how to reach BIGG success:
Learn from the success of others
I love learning this way. There’s nothing better than hearing or reading someone’s success story. I always come away informed and inspired.
I always find it amazing how everyone – everyone – goes over speed bumps on the way. I just love hearing how they got over them.
We should probably put out a warning here, though, It’s almost certain that your path to BIGG success won’t be exactly the same as anyone else’s.
Sure there will be common challenges, but people often fall flat on their face because they think the exact same tactics will work for them.
Your situation isn’t the same as their situation. You’re not in the same period of time they were in. There are a lot of differences but still, important lessons can be taken away.
Learn from your success
Whenever you reach a new plateau or a goal, take time to reflect upon what went right. What were the driving factors behind reaching your goal?
Just like before, we have a caveat. The same tactics you used to reach this level of success may not take you to the next one. In fact, they may impede your progress. So keep that in mind as you’re discovering lessons learned.
Learn from your mistakes.
Let’s be clearer: Learn from your mistakes the first time you make it! If you make the same mistake twice, you obviously didn’t learn enough the first time around.
Mistakes are an opportunity to learn but the opportunity can be wasted. So just like your successes, stop and reflect upon your mistakes.
Ask yourself some questions. Only unlike reflecting on your successes, ask these questions in the future tense to make it more palatable and, therefore, more productive.
For example, don’t ask, “What did I do wrong?” Instead ask, “What would I do differently next time?”
It’s also important to take away the right lessons. Maybe you gave something a try and it didn’t work out the way you wanted. A lot of people will never try again. That’s usually the wrong lesson.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can reach BIGG success faster if you don’t have to make all of the mistakes yourself! It’s much better to avoid a mistake by learning the lesson vicariously.
Most people don’t like to talk about their mistakes. If you find someone who will, listen with all ears! You may also observe others making mistakes. Soak it in!
BONUS: The best place to learn how to reach BIGG success
It is any place that gets you where you want to be. It may be from a casual conversation. It may be something you saw on TV or something you read. It may come from inside you.
And yes, it may come from BIGG Success! We just had to get in one more shameless plug!
Our point is that there are opportunities to learn hitting all of us all day, every day. All we have to do is stay tuned in. That leads to BIGG success.
