Have you ever felt that you were just naturally good at something?
It didn’t matter whether you were a fresh beginner or a seasoned expert. You had practiced a skill, gotten the hang of it, and since then, kept doing things the same way. Maybe you were learning to swim, cook, or perform a task at work.
Then someone comes along and tries to help. They offer a suggestion, advice, or some insight. Being used to your way, you brush the person off.
But after awhile, you hit a roadblock. You start to realize that you don’t know everything. You try implementing the person’s advice. And it works!
You begin looking at things in a different light. Gradually, it dawns on you that there is a whole other level… one you had no idea existed.
