This lesson boils down to major categories. The first being that it is always good to surround yourself with successful people if you want to be successful. Take the football player who worked under the legendary Notre Dame football coach and the lengths that prepared him to grow in his professional career.
The second being specialized knowledge. A lot of times especially in school we are filled with useless facts. So much to the point are kids are trained to think this way in aquring knowledge. I have been coaching my son to focus more on personal development. Before he found his passion in film he began to study history and wars. I told him that is we good to learn these things but how is that getting you closer to your goal!! On the note Jim Rohn said formal education will make you a living but self education will make you a fortune. So set high goals and surround yourself with successful!!!
