Becoming the best version of yourself

8.  Don’t be afraid to learn something new.

8.  Don’t be afraid to learn something new.

“As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.”  Life is a book and those who do not educate themselves read only a few pages.

When you know better, you live better.  Period.

And remember that all education is self-education.  It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop.  We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.  Those of us who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own time are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.  Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of.  Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.”

 

Whether you’re reading a new book on a subject you’re interested in, taking a continuing education class in a school or university, learning a new craft or skill, beginning a new job, or learning a new method in an old job – it’s learning.

Challenge your mind, challenge yourself.  Keep that brain working.  As easy as a crossword puzzle, or playing Words With Friends on your phone, your brain should never be at rest.  Like the Nike ads:  Just do it!
