I have had so many events over the last week that continues to remind me that everybody is my teacher. I think at some level often we look for someone who has had the results or an expert to tell us what to do next or where to go, but that is closing ourselves off to learning from anywhere.
If we really want to aspire to great things we can look around and learn everything we need as part of who we are is in everything we see. When someone annoys us it is best to ask what it is in me that I am being annoyed at, is there a part of me with that behavior. That way someone who annoys you has become your teacher.
I like to walk around with my ears open. We have two ears and one mouth. If you are truly curious about people the next lesson you need to learn in life is right in front of you.
I have enjoyed living by the concept so much of late and my rate of learning and growth has escalated. Give it a go and let me know what you find.
