Who Are Your Trusted Advisors Episode 56

Michael Hyatt


“We all want to be successful. But when it comes to success, your advisors can make you or break you.” -Michael Hyatt


This episode emphasizes the fact that every decision we make in our lives may be guided by people who we can call as our advisors. These decisions may be either made successfully or a failure depending on who are our advisors.  This is because advisors help you maximize the opportunities that may come your way and be able to avoid the biggest mistakes you will inevitably encounter.

And what is really catchy about this episode is the fact that Michael had once experienced failure in choosing the right advisor to have. This ordeal had cost him a great deal but was able to help him learn four hard but important lessons.

  1. You can’t succeed alone.
  2. You need trusted advisors.
  3. You need multiple advisors.
  4. You need qualified advisors.

Michael also stressed out in his website that we need to, “Think of your advisors as your “personal board of directors.” They will give you the accountability and insight necessary to avoid a lot of pain and achieve more than you could on your own.


Additional Quotes:
