Looking back, I can now see that the number-one cause of my business and personal failures was an unwillingness to seek out wisdom and listen to the wise.
I just thought I knew better
Or, that you didn’t get it
Or, I could figure it out myself
Or, that I didn’t have time to listen
Or slow down long enough to consider
That you might see things from a better angle
Or there might be a way, proven and tried
Of my limitations
But, I kept my pride.
It only cost me
Lost opportunity, money, and time.
