"To laugh often and
much; to win the respect
of intelligent people and
the affection of children;

to earn the appreciation of
honest critics and endure
the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty, to
find the best in others;

to leave the world a bit
better, whether by a healthy
child, a garden patch or a
redeemed social condition;

to know even one life has
breathed easier because
you have lived. This is
to have succeeded."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

"You will never reach your full potential without tapping into the wisdom of others.
You just won’t. You know what you know. That’s all you know.
You’ve experienced what you’ve experienced. That is the sum total of your experience.

Those are two limitations that set you up for poor decision making in areas outside the realm of your knowledge and experience.
But learning to learn from those who are ahead of you removes both of those limitations.

Your knowledge, insight, and experience may put you miles ahead of the average person.
But even then, you won’t reach your full potential apart from tapping into the knowledge, insight, and experience of those who are a step ahead of you."

~ Andy Andrews : The Principle of the Path ~
