Have you ever learnt anything from others?

If not, it is high time you did.

Learning from others is one of the short cuts to personal development, because the more you observe others, how they achieved their success or learnt what caused their failure, it will give you the necessary insight to know your own predilections and correct them.

It was Carl Jung who said “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” Even though this quote may elicit a laugh first, when you understand what exactly he means you will understand why you need to learn from others.

So, go ahead, stop being inward focused and start observing others, it is certain to lead to personal development.
