"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire." William Butler Yeats
Life is the ultimate classroom.
Each day is an invaluable self improvement seminar. It's an opportunity to learn. It's an opportunity to improve. It's an opportunity to immeasurably enhance every facet of your life.
An opportunity most people take far too lightly.
Day after day way too many people just go through the motions. They get up. They go to work. And then come home. They do not try to get better or try to improve. Nor do they try to build on the lessons learned that day. They just want to do whatever they have to do to get by. And get back on the couch.
These people stopped growing long ago. They stopped improving. They stopped moving in the direction of their dreams. Stuck in place, barely making a dent in their goals, these folks could do so much better. In fact, they could have, be and do all of the wonderful things they have forever dreamed of having, being and doing. But they don't. They never learned this simple lesson: you never stop learning.
You don't stop learning when you finish school.
You don't stop learning when you land a job.
You don't stop learning when you retire.
You never stop learning - ever!
"When I learn something new - and it happens every day - I feel a little more at home in this universe, a little more comfortable in the nest." Bill Moyers
What about you? What have you learned today... from your kids, from your parents, from the people you know and work with? What have they taught you about life, living and yourself?
What kind of lessons have you gleaned from the good you experienced today?
What have you learned from your wins?
And what have you learned from your losses?
Have you taken these lessons to heart? Have you used them as a stepping stone to better future?
Or have you frittered the lessons away?
"Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence." Abigail Smith Adams
Every day is filled with limitless chances to gain insight, knowledge and experience; chances to make yourself smarter, better and more efficient.
There are chances to bounce back from adversity.
There are chances to overcome hardship.
There are chances to triumph over defeat.
There are chances to get better.
There are chances to improve.
There are chances to grow, prosper and flourish.
As matter of fact, there are more chances than you could ever hope to handle.
Are you learning? Are you living? Are you taking your chances?
"If I am through learning, I am through." John Wooden
Learning is a daily experience, a daily excursion, a daily exploration into the unknown.
Learning is living.
Learning is doing.
Learning is what you're all about.
Learning makes you better.
Learning makes you stronger.
Learning forges you into the person you are destined to become.
Make it your lifetime mission to learn - and keep learning. Keep thinking. Keep probing. Keep asking questions. Keep looking for ways to get better each day, every day, for the rest of your life.
Eartha Kitt once said, "I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma." What an incredible outlook on life!
Why not make it yours as well? Live all you can. Love all you can. Learn all you can. And graduate with honors.
Power Pointer: Learning is living. Start living today.
