“Everything in life comes to you as a teacher. Pay attention. Learn quickly.” – Cherokee Saying
I am constantly amazed at the ability of life to serve as a teacher. Sadly, the lessons learned can be the hardest and most life changing.
The question of significance involves two thoughts expressed in the saying above. Are we paying attention and learning from what life is teaching?
I am sure you have heard, “If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.” The very idea expresses the need for us to pay attention and learn from life.
If we could only develop a method to help us remember the mistakes so we do not repeat them and use the success we experience to duplicate it.
Perhaps we find the answer in the thought for today. Every event, every person, every second of every day is a classroom to teach us and prepare us for greater leadership. Our job is to pay attention and learn quickly.
The better student we are in life, the more success we will see in leadership.
