Tammy’s one-minute tip

 Are You Fat?

1) Faithful:  to your spouse, family and commitments. We must learn to follow through with the things we have said we will do.

2) Available: when God shows you a need. Be ready and will to meet the needs around you.  We can’t plan life. All we can do is be available for it.

3) Teachable: never stop learning. I tell my clients, when we stop learning, we die.

 

Ask yourself, “Am I really teachable?”

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: all the good advice in the world won’t help if you don’t have a teachable spirit. To know whether you are really open to new ideas and new ways of doing things, ask yourself the following questions:

Am I open to other people’s ideas?

Do I listen more than I talk?

Am I open to changing my opinion based on new information?

Do I readily admit when I am wrong?

Do I observe before acting on a situation?

Do I ask questions?

Am I willing to ask a question that will expose my ignorance?

Am I open to doing things in a way I haven’t done before?

Am I willing to ask for directions?

Do I act defensive when criticized, or do I listen openly for truth?

John Maxwell
