DailyQ #26: What is the best advice you've ever been given?
What is the best advice you've ever been given? Troy Hoffman advocates reading, listening and exposing yourself to knowledge. We can become great in any area of life by surrounding ourselves with would class minds.
Back in the day when I was flooded with all these questions:
- How do you grow in life?
- Where do you go?
- What do I do with my life?
- Where is my life going?
- What's the meaning of life?
- Why should I be on this earth?
- What business should I build?
- What love life should I have?
- What should my life look like?
I was listening to tapes, attending conferences and reading as much as I could devour. One of the best pieces of advice I've ever heard way back in the early 90's was "Books, tapes, and functions." It took 25 years realize the true value of this. What you read will impact your life. Listening to tapes and attending learning events will grow your mind.
BOOKS, TAPES AND FUNCTIONS!
Transforming the 6 inches between your ears will have the greatest impact on your life. What we're listening to, what we're reading, and the events we're around is what we'll become. Surround yourself with world class entrepreneurs, athletes, or people in whatever area you're trying to excel in. Observe how they live, examine their thought patterns, track their actions, and hear their language. It is key that we get this knowledge from somewhere. We may not have access to the worlds greatest leaders, but we have their books, writings, and podcasts.
Listening, reading and experiencing conferences will transform our life. It will change the way we see the world around us and the possibilities before us. It will change the way we treat ourselves and others. It will change the way we take action to move our life forward. Everything we read, sooner or later, will become a belief.
We have to be, before we can do, before we can have.
We have to create a thought-life in our minds. See the journey and see the path.
What book do you need to buy? What podcast do you need to download? Who do you need to learn and grow from? What conference do you need to register for to truly start transforming your life in a much greater way?
Now go and live your destiny!
