Your job is to keep on learning!
Learning isn’t limited to reading and studying. Learning is EVERYTHING! Taking care of your health, deepening your relationships with love, managing your time, building a company, giving more to charity!
The smartest, most successful people on the planet are always learning.
They thrive on it. They know if they stop learning they will not live the full life they are blessed with.
In fact the more successful people become the more they invest their time and energy in learning because they realize more and more how valuable it is to their success.
They love it.
They are voracious readers – Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Warren Buffett all read over 3+ hours per day!
They choose to make every situation a learning experience.
The cool thing is that you can too! It is simply a choice to make life a study vs. a reaction to things that ‘happen’ to you and don’t go your way.
You can see the above as a sad face or a smiley face.
Same thing if you are in a social situation you don’t want to be in, in a job you don’t want to be in or in a class you don’t enjoy. You can be unhappy about it and resist it or you can embrace it and filter for the learning opportunities.
One great way to do this is not think about whether the circumstance is useful to you but how you can use it to teach others!
When you become a teacher you learn better for a few reasons.
- You aren’t self absorbed and not thinking whether it’s worth your investment of time, right/wrong etc.
- Your brain is thinking about how to share it with others in a digestible way for them to apply.
- When you teach others you learn better.
Everything in life is learning. Some may seem like a stretch but the truth is they all require a neural connection between your brain and your nervous system.
- Getting your body fit
- Playing guitar
- Building a company
- Earning $1,000,000
- Listening to your intuition
- Getting out of bed in the morning
All of these require you to deepen your skill set more and more. If you want to learn more about the levels of learning you watch this video.
Learning is one of the best forms of entertainment.
The more you are able to create associations with a multidisciplinary approach the richer your life will be.
