Dave Ramsey, Zig Ziglar, Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison; these are just a few names linked with the brilliant business minds that changed business and America forever. “If you want to change the way you think, study those who think differently than you,” said business expert Ralph Slaske. To add to Slaske’s quote, I’d like to add a few words of my own: If they are in life where you want to be.
Studying business geniuses is a great idea, but why would you? What can you learn from these people? For one thing, you’ll learn principles that aren’t taught in school (but why?!), and you’ll also learn how to look at failure and loss differently. The majority of people believe that if something doesn’t work, then we need to run away from it and find something else that will. Someone with a business has learned that if something doesn’t work, try again, then try again, then try again in a different way. Attack the problem in different angles. If your solution didn’t change the problem, change your thinking about the problem.
