How to be successful, tip 5. In this tip 5, what I am going to share with you is that you have to understand that you do not know anything. You do not know everything. You may know something, but the fact is that you do not know all the things in the universe.
I was extremely confident that I knew everything in the world. But after being unsuccessful for a while, I failed, and apparently because of being a failure, I actually was down for a while in terms of finances, physically, and mentally. After that, I realized that I had to pick myself up, and when picking myself up, it was not an easy process. Because of that, I learned to be more open to more things. And because of being able to open up to more things, I realized that I already knew a lot of things that I had not known before. And because of that, I learned to be more accepting in terms of learning new things. So, I always adapt this particular approach so that I do not know what I do not know.
The fact is that there are so many interesting things around you if you open up your mind and just listen. You don’t have to accept it; just listen. From there, you process the information and see whether it makes sense. You see, if it makes sense, why not try it for at least a couple of months, a year, or half a year and see whether it helps you? Regardless of anything that you learned, you just try three months, six months, one year. If it does not work, change it and drop it. It’s okay. But one thing is for sure, if you have a closed mind, which means you don’t accept anything that is new, anything that is out of the world, anything that is innovative, you will not progress, and you will not be successful. Because of that, I used to be a person that was always networking with people. I meet with people. I talk to people face-to-face very frequently. But because of this COVID, everybody has to stay at home. And because of that, the Zoom came in, which I initially totally rejected. I do not like Zoom because I don’t find it very personal. I don’t feel that there’s a bond between two people, or even three people, depending on how many groups there are. And because of that, I feel that is totally not sincere, and the thing is that I have to accept the fact that it’s going to be continuously like this for the next few years. I do not know what I do not know, so I learned how to use Zoom. I learned how to use the function. And even today, I was actually giving training under Zoom about two years ago, I totally rejected Zoom, which means that I am adapting. I need to adapt to the environment to be better. Because I have an open mind and I believe that I do not know what I do not know, I always change. I always make sure that I accept certain information first. From there, I will change for the better. It’s not for the sake of changing for the sake of changing, but changing for the sake of being better. From there, we can be better and be successful. I would urge you and encourage you to have a more open mind and always remember that we do not know what we do not know. Because of that, there are many things in the world that are very interesting and very innovative. Just be open, have an open mind, and just take the information and process it. I wish you very much good luck and wish you good health every single day. Thank you very much.
