Most people do not seek feedback. And coincidentally, most people are not wealthy. It is the fear of criticism that prevents you from seeking feedback. Most of the self-made millionaires in my study were fanatics when it came to obtaining feedback. Somehow, they were able to overcome this fear. Feedback is necessary in order to learn what works and what doesn’t work. The military is expert in training their troops to seek feedback. Feedback tells them where the enemy is, how many there are and what they are doing. In pursuing success you need to take a page out of the military’s feedback book. You need to learn everything about what you’re doing to find out if you are on the right path or if you need to change what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. It is much less costly to seek feedback than to lose time and money learning what not to do via the School of Hard Knocks. Learning via the School of Hard Knocks is the hard, expensive way; seeking feedback is the easier, less costly path towards success. Feedback guarantees success or guarantees that you will not fail.
