Walk your talk!
It’s all too easy to give advice, and much harder to live by it. We have all seen or heard about the out of shape personal trainers, broke financial planners or the struggling life coaches who just happen to be at the end of their rope. Tony Robbins says that “repetition is the mother of all skill”, and Malcolm Gladwell in his great book “Outliers” says that it takes roughly 10K hours to truly master a skill or profession. I find that if I read it, then I hear it, I teach it, then I know it.
I am not the best mortgage broker out there, but I have learned a thing or two over the past 7 years. Writing and researching these blog posts has allowed me to hone my skills and to pay closer attention to my own financial decisions. Some say ” those who can do, and those who can’t teach”, well I would like to add something to that by saying that the truly great do and teach or at least share their knowledge. Where would we be as a society if we had to learn it all over again with each successive generation. We would probably still be living in caves, and hitting each other over the head with rocks and sticks.
Knowledge is meant to be shared. I find that with each idea that is shared, 10 more great ones come back to me. if you have found any of my articles helpful then I would be extremely pleased, if you have anything to add or to share please feel free to comment. I look forward to hearing from you.
