Are You Willing to Learn From Others?

Sometimes people can make us feel "less than" when we are in their company, but truly wise and mature people never try to do that. If you don't stand near a ruler, you won't be able to measure your growth or monitor how much you have developed. Whatever successful people know, they have not always known it, they had to learn and grow also. Don't pretend you actually know what you don't know. It is best to speak honestly, asking questions when appropriate. Most successful people enjoy a chance to discuss and share what they know, so take advantage of this. Fear of rejection prevents us from going forward in life and in relationships. You would really be surprised how many people limit themselves to socializing only with those who are comparable to them. They feel uncomfortable the moment they are surrounded by people who are different from them.  The important part of our development occurs when you decide to cross the tracks and relate to people who are ahead of you in some way.  These relationships create a chance for you to grow. It is not wrong to lack knowledge; it is wrong to be unwilling to learn.In the Scriptures Joshua learned the principles of good leadership from Moses. Ruth learned how to find the correct relationship by listening to Naomi. Use this Scripture as a guiding principle of your life: "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding."(Proverbs 3:13)
