Being teachable seems obvious but it is very difficult. The older you get, the more you experience and learn in life. Hopefully, as you grow in knowledge you increase in wisdom as well.

As a result, there is a tendency to rely on yourself, your experience, and your wisdom. Now, that’s not all bad or even ill advised, but it can be a problem.

>When no one can speak into your life, it is a problem.

When we rely only rely on our own wisdom and experience it is dangerous. It is a disgusting trait when someone has no curiosity or desire to learn about new things. This is called complacency and be sure to drive it far from your character.

That’s not to say you don’t have a unique perspective that is valuable. Or that you don’t have a singular vision in certain situations. You do. It just means that you need to be sure to glean wisdom from others as well.

>Gather what you know, ask others what they know, and move forward. And do this for the rest of your life.

So be teachable. Please be teachable.
