Eagles don’t take advice from vultures on how to catch prey. A cat won’t take advice from a pig on how to keep clean.
Asking a neighbour or your parents about what they think of your new business idea, network marketing, or career choice when they’ve never done anything similar can be compared to a young doctor asking an old lawyer his opinion on how best to conduct a successful heart surgery. Age is not a prerequisite for wisdom.
To be great, you model the best and ignore the others. Success leaves a track record, and truly successful people are all too happy to share from their wealth of knowledge, if you’re willing to swallow your pride, shelve your ego and just ask.
Truly wealthy people are willing to share of their fortune. And the happiest people are the most generous people. It’s no coincidence.
Merry Christmas everyone.
