Become a student, no matter what area of work or interest you should always be looking at ways to improve on your skills.
The moment we get complacent in thinking that we have made it or that we are at the top is the moment someone over takes you.
You cannot get better if you’re convinced you are the best.
In the world we live in we have access to endless amounts of information from books, podcasts, online courses etc. A true student is like a sponge soaking up information left, right and centre.
Who you surround yourself with is just as important. You need someone better then you that you can learn from, someone lesser then you that you can teach and someone equal that you can challenge yourself against.
Ego can drive the student mindset away but there is a great quote
“when student is ready, the teacher appears”
