Some helpful advice to lead a great life

I want to share with you some helpful advice to help you lead a great life. They are simple and effective. They ensure you have a great relationship and become the best version of yourself.

Be a Learning Machine

Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger are two great delights to watch and learn from. They have not only built successful companies that few can only dream to dare. They have also both taught us and me in particular some of the most enduring life lessons.

Here’s one that Charlie Munger teaches:

“I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest, but they are LEARNING MACHINES.

They go to bed every night a little wiser than when they woke up.”

Be a learning machine.

That’s the prerequisite. You don’t have to be the best or first. Just go to bed smarter than you woke up.

How to respond to someone who have acknowledge their fault

When people have recognised their faults, the best thing for you to do at that point is to make them feel not alone. Make them realise it is not an uncommon fault and if you have made a similar fault before, it presents you with a unique opportunity to share it and how you are dealing with it or dealt with it.

You are making them see that they are not alone, not because it’s a nice thing to say. No. Rather, it’s because it is a complete truth. We are all humans with many faults. And no fault is unique to any one person.

What you must not do is gloat. What you must not do is make them feel worse than they have already admitted. What you must not do is shame them.

One success nullifies 99 failures

When you have faced rejection for far too many times, the next thing is that you begin to doubt yourself and your capabilities.

Unfortunately, there’s no antidote to this feeling than for you to persist because all you need is ONE success and the shadows of doubt that surrounds you will disappear.
