If you ever find that you’re the most talented person in the room you need to find another room.
Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon, Page 104
Experience has convinced me that the key to becoming everything God wants us to be as Christian men is to put away our pride, suck in our internal display of fancy-colored feathers, risk squeezing out of our protective shells, admit to ourselves and others that we have a long way to go, and take the first small steps toward lifelong change. God will bless us if we will choose a teachable spirit as our basic disposition in the Lord.

Pro 22:17 Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your mind to my knowledge; Proverbs 22:17 NASB
You can read a book every day or memorize entire volumes of Scripture, but if you lack a teachable spirit, your efforts are futile.
