The Power of Learning Something New

I’m always learning something new! And I love that!
Learning is the process of acquiring new or modifying existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values or preferences.

If you think about it, learning does not stop when you finish school or university. Learning presents itself in everyday activities, in engaging with people at work, in reading an article online or in the newspaper, a good book, or having great conversations with friends & family. We hold the power of learning something new!
We can always learn something new from a situation or from someone’s point of view. 
It’s through learning that you get in touch with who you are, you discover what you are capable of and you realize how much potential you have to grow, expand your views, experience new things and help others along the way.
It’s an amazing feeling to learn something new, whatever that new thing might be and be able to share it with someone else.
Spend some time with yourself and learn from your own experience!
Perhaps you want to create new habits, get rid of the old ones that don’t serve you anymore!
Get rid of the fear of starting something new, invest in yourself, you deserve it!
Don’t let yourself live in “I don”t know”. If you really don’t know, create a plan to figure it out. When you live in “I don’t know”, you stay stuck. The cure to being stuck is taking action.

Learn something new! It’s an amazing experience!

Ulrich Boser says:
“Learning is a learned behaviour.”
“Many people mistakenly believe that the ability to learn is a matter of intelligence. ” 
“A growing body of research is making it clear that learners are made, not born. Through the deliberate use of practice and dedicated strategies to improve our ability to learn, we can all develop expertise faster and more effectively. In short, we can all get better at getting better.”
Today I want to share with you a few things that I’ve been learning from 3 amazing speakers I follow on social media.
Their stories are fascinating and their love for sharing their knowledge to help other people is captivating. They share the struggles, the tricks, what works, what doesn’t work, and the ways that we can live a better life, a more fulfilling life.
I follow these mentors on Instagram and YouTube and I can honestly say my views on a lot of topics have expanded tremendously since I started learning from these incredible human beings. They are truly an inspiration! 
Here they are;

We need to cultivate the desire to learn in ourselves and in our children. 
One of the best ways to gain knowledge is through self-education. Period.
