What makes few people constantly progress in their professional lives?
Do you know why a group of people seems to make constant progress in their professional lives while other doesn’t? I’ve noticed an interesting mindset difference between these two groups. The group that makes constant progress approaches obstacles and challenges differently than the one that doesn’t. The progressive group approaches life with an open mind—an eagerness to learn and a willingness to fail. The second group, on the other hand, gets uncomfortable at the first sign of disagreement and would rather fight than being wrong. The way each group approaches obstacles, it turns out, defines much of what separates them.
Further, I figured out that intelligence plays a role in the growth of an individual only in the first few years. Later, it’s the attitude that has a bigger contribution. In GreyB, I came across a lot of highly intelligent people those were faster learners. Their attitude, however, made a lot of their teammates refused to work with them which became a roadblock in their path to excellence.
