Learning is naturally difficult. And to learn from others is even worse. Many things may work for and against one’s opportunity to learn from others.
Critical amongst them is PRIDE – the sense of “knowing it all”, the demonstrated lack of respect for the views of others and exhibited pomposity.
With PRIDE, one destroys the opportunity to learn and makes a mess of him/herself.
Instead of it, develop the sense of SERVICE – to be available, to participate and to work with others and on every doable task.
Others have developed competencies in your desired field of work. Activate the right attitude and learn from them.
