I love giving commencement speeches at graduations. But most young people look shell-shocked when they hear me say that their learning has only just begun.

I tell them that to be successful, they have to follow a two-word rule. The two words? “Teach me.”

Learning doesn’t stop because we’ve graduated. In fact, “teach me” is a critical key for success for anyone.

I’ve got some examples here that show you what I mean:

  • Teach Me Mr. Client how I can help you better use our product or service.
  • Teach Me friend how to laugh at myself.
  • Teach Me mentor how to do this effectively and efficiently.
  • Teach Me honey how to be your ideal partner.
  • Teach Me kids how to play with abandon.

Action – If you think you know everything, you’re living a life of disappointment already. But if you follow the “Teach Me” rule, you can reach any goal you set.

      Love it! Leaving room for learning from others (teachers) keeps us young – and keeps us open to possibility!

      Always a student and teachers show up when needed.

      My first mentor had a very simple set of rules; a daily checklist, kind of.
      Everyday, make sure you:
      – Learn something new,
      – Solve one problem,
      – Make money for you and your company, and
      – Have fun while doing it.
      I’m always willing to learn!
