A successful person is a coachable person

June 10, 2016

Be Coachable. Always be ready for advice – even if you think you have it all together. Always keep an open mind and a receptive ear to constructive criticism. Sometimes you become so comfortable with what you’re doing, you can’t believe that you’re doing things incorrectly. Never become set in your ways; conquer your resistance to change. A successful person is a coachable person.
