- Successful People Are Not Shy of Admitting Ignorance
There is this common misconception that successful people are conceited of their knowledge and wisdom. Which isn’t true at all. If you go into depth studying the world famous business leaders, you will find that most genuinely successful, self-made entrepreneurs are not anywhere near vanity. Most successful entrepreneurs are the first to admit, without any apprehension that they do not know it all. Because simple fact is that the more they admit what they don’t know, the more they learn what they want to, the more they succeed in the direction. With an open mind and an acceptance towards criticism, success opens its doors. I take the liberty to quote Richard Branson here, because he actually is my favorite one among the lot, “Learning and leadership go together. Too much credit goes to me for what we have achieved at Virgin, but the successes happen from working and learning with some of the world’s most inspiring and inspired people.” Get it?
