So I’m on a plane to California to the Real Savvy Success conference.  Next month I’ll be at Art Jonak’s Mastermind event.  I’ll be speaking at both of them, but that’s not really why I go.

I go to sharpen my own saw.

I go early and stay late to catch as many other speakers as I can.  Then each year I find two or three other conferences where I can just attend completely as a student.  Because if I’m not growing, I’m moving backward.

And the same is true for you…

Are you reading books this week?  Listening to audios?  Watching some personal growth videos?  Do you invest in yourself and your future by attending events to learn?

It may be the most important thing you do.

    I just attended a seminar yesterday on “The Law of Atrraction” and am reading Tony Robbins material as well. Always growing and learning!

  2. So true, I have spent this last year going to as many seminars and personal growth trainings as I can. Also reading and video is amazing out there! Networking and getting to know, like, and trust is one of the best things that I learned, of course I knew that but just using these practices has helped me grow in my business and personally!

    Hi Randy

    Just back from Manila attending a World HCFI (Healthcare Christian Fellowship International), with delegates from 87 countries. So, have been out of action in terms of reading and watching videos but networking, yes. Great time and it is so good to be back to work and sharpen saw at the same time.

    Actively learning is an important component in attaining success. I hope no one is spending money they don’t have to attend seminars and conferences. That’s a good way to put yourself in the red.

    • Jack,

      Sometimes in the beginning some may have to scrape together money to get trained or attend an event. Hopefully they then apply what they learn, profit, then invest some of that profit into their future education.

      When people fall into the trap of spending themselves into destitution on training over & over, not taking action & not profiting that’s usually a deeper issue based in fear.

  5. Learning thru various forms of media & spending time with my mentors has made a great impact on my life & career. Very appreciative of those who have taken time over the years to write down & record what they’ve learned to help others.

    Great inspirational words Randy! I have four books I’m reading. I attended a boot camp last week. I feel like I’m growing and gaining knowledge every day! I hope I never feel like I know enough.

    An amazing post Randy! One of the greatest things MLM has given me is amazing growth as a person. I suggest everyone to read “The richest man in babylon”. It has some great truths and I made a little addition. It says that you should save 10% of what you earn. I am doing that + investing another 10% of what I earn into my self-development/business. I’m quite sure that the latter 10% are much more critical to my success than the savings. That would be a dream come true to attend the October Gothenburg event, but I guess I’m gonna have to catch you some other time…

    Always learning Randy! The biggest challenge is passing it all on quickly enough, because if you are not teaching others or applying what you learn…..it aint worth a dime!

  12. One Idea.

    I agree 100% with the attitude of this blog post.

    I picked up an attitude many years back in my creative real estate days. One idea. The people who were successful would go to several training events every year with the mindset that if they walk away with just one new idea it makes both the time and financial investment more than worth it.

    And more than just getting a new idea but also hearing again something you already “know” but maybe hearing it a different way and something just clicks.

    Or hearing it again, for the umpteenth time, and finally deciding to go home and USE it. Because we all know that the power isn’t in the knowing but in the implementation of what we know.
