Learn to Invest in yourself
What is your teachability index? For instance, how trainable are you and are you easily taught new concepts and are you coachable in succeeding! On a scale of 1 through 10 where would you score? If someone started to tell you how to go about doing something and you had an idea how to do it, if you would say I already know and stop your lesson then you have a low score.
If what you have been doing so far is working for you and you are not in need of a breakthrough, then don’t read this blog post. But everyone to include myself usually hit a plateau that seems had to breakthrough, that is when we need to change our playbook and that is a result of a change of thinking. The only constant in life is change.
If you are not opened to change and new ideas, again, you will score low on the trainability index. Having a higher trainable index doesn’t mean you stop thinking or asking questions. Rather it means you have decided to use your brain and start thinking correctly. He or she who wants to appear to know everything is really holding back his or her progress.
If you were telling me how to do something I have done before, I would do my best to listen all the way through. There might be that one thing that I did not know and will make all the difference! We must allow ourselves to be teachable. We must have a willingness to learn from any and every one regardless of preconceive notions.
For example, if you are to succeed at a particular type of business, you must be willing to learn all aspects of that business. So who you will listen to is the person who either has what you want, who has the knowledge due to experience, and clearly can show you how to get to your goal. Don’t be like those people who like to talk and won’t listen when someone is try to direct them to success.
So what is your willingness to learn the life skills that will shorten your journey to success? Learn to invest in yourself with the right knowledge! I think it was Einstein who said, to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result is insane.
Most people want some kind of success, but they are not willing to give up the non-productive activities that are really helping to hold them back. I am here to tell you that you are going to have to give up something; you never get something for nothing, there is always a sacrifice!
It may be a matter of giving up your time now so you can have more time on the back end, or it could be some form of entertainment or even money. But you will have to give up something; are you paying attention; how teachable are you? Then you must go out and do what it takes to achieve you goal. Start by raising your teachability index.
The fact is, you don’t know what you don’t know. Thus, you must be willing to learn and willing to change.

Greetings to all my new readers, Tony Williams here…
Project Your Mind: where science meets spirituality!
What if I told you most truths are hidden in plain sight!!!
What I am bringing to you are scientific, and physiological truths. These truths I have researched in-depth and, most, personally put into practice. So, I know they work.
What I present to you are missing pieces. Many of who I call giants have left us clues for us to follow, yet with missing elements from each. What I did and am still doing, is researching all the missing ingredients and putting them all together. Some of which came out of my very own mind in meditation. And, now I am bringing it to you, read my book “Inspiration Corner” and refer back to this blog.
It will start coming together, and now all you have to do is put it into action. I even show you how and why this science works. Now it is all up to you!
