Booster Shot: A thirst for knowledge and the magic of mentorship

Skills. From our early years we are taught how to learn and acquire skills. The skills we develop, whatever they might be, are a critical factor in what we do in our lives and what level of passion we develop for the utilisation of those skills. One of the keys to success is the continual development and fine tuning of these skills so that they become eminently useful to those around you. We see this in the people we use to assist us in our lives and in our businesses. These people can help us to make the greatest use of our skills and to grow our businesses and ourselves. To make this happen you must have the will to improve your skills and to develop every opportunity to make yourself one of those that can help others. So create the will to develop your skills!

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.” — Jim Rohn
