(Exit Complacency) The next level
I have learned from some of the best minds within my industry. I hold the highest level of respect for those that have shared their knowledge and time with me.
How does one get to the next level? I read numerous publications that feature business men and woman that seem to be doing business on a whole-other level. Their success is phenomenal.
I understand that comparing yourself to others is not a good thing to do, but as a competitor, sometimes I just can’t help it.
Some people consider me to be relatively successful however, occasionally I feel as if I’m in the minors watching the Majors.
My question is: How does one find the true next level players/thinkers? We could all hire another business coach or join another civic group or country club etc. but I have a suspicion that we won’t necessarily find them there. Someone once told me that Warren Buffet was a salt-of-the-earth guy. They had the opportunity to meet him once at a business function. I was surprised by that statement. They went on to describe him as ‘what you see is what you get’ there are no overwhelming expectations placed upon you, just be you, that is why you are here.
The ‘next levelers’ seem to be more than willing to share their knowledge and views. They give without any expectation of gaining. They will kick your ass and tell you why afterward. They walk their talk. They are truly a rare breed and that is why they seem so elusive. Successes probably find`s them!
I suppose that acknowledging that there is a next level is one of the first steps in your journey to reaching it.
