Even a Schmuck Can Teach You Things

Here’s another one from Karen Salmansohn’s book, Ballsy: 99 Ways to Grow a Bigger Pair and Score Extreme Business Success. It’s tip number sixty…

“Even a schmuck can teach you things…Defocus your anger at enemies. Refocus the lessons they generously teach you. In the end, you can learn just as much from your tor-mentors as from your mentors…Don’t hold onto all your resentments. Instead hold onto all the lessons learned.”

Joe and Wanda?

Joe Kerr: I know you are, but what am I?

Wanda B. Goode: Excellent point. Learn to repeat the good things you observe and avoid the bad. No use getting all worked up and wasting energy over things you can’t control. Take the high road, learn, and move on. Be a mentor and not a tormentor!
