Those who become successful and wealthy know what to do and what not to do.
Knowing what to do will only get you half way down the field. To score and become successful/wealthy, you must also know what not to do.
Success Mentors fast track the process, cutting the number of years for success in half.
Most successful people, however, are not blessed with having a Success Mentor to tell them what to do and what not to do. Most have to attend the School of Hard Knocks to learn what works and what doesn’t work. And it takes many years to graduate from the School of Hard Knocks.
Manage your expectations. Focus on learning everything you can about what you do and the industry within which you do it. Focus on growing into the individual you need to become in order to be successful.
