Continuous learning is the key to success because the only way to get to the next level in life is by learning something new. You see the problem with most people is that they don’t know what they don’t know. They’re in a state of unconscious incompetence.
I am really blown away by the success of some people. I have seen them soar. Some people have gone from average to above average in a seemingly short period of time. Not just because they were good at what they did, but it was because they paid people good money to help them with the things that they were not good at. These people weren’t unconsciously incompetent. They knew what they didn’t know and they were smart enough to pay someone to handle those things that they were not good at. Please pay close attention to this statement. (they were smart enough to pay someone to handle those things that they were not good at) You see this is the difference between those who are successful and those who are not.
It’s not easy. As a matter of fact, it’s hard. It’s damn hard. I noticed that people really engage a lot of times when I conduct a lot of my trainings. As a matter of fact, one gentleman came up to me and he said that he was blown away by my training because he felt as if I really new what I was doing. I wasn’t one of those people that said SEO and didn’t even know that SEO stood for Search Engine Optimization. I came across as knowledgeable because I am self taught.
I believe in continuous learning as the model for success
I know that applied knowledge is power, which is the reason why I will never stop learning. Not only will I not stop learning, but I also will not stop applying the things that I have learned. I am excited about the future because I know that if I keep learning and improving that I will continue to grow. I read a statistic that most people stop learning by the time they turn 25. I believe that it’s a tragedy. I am committed to growing old with continuous learning as a part of my life plan because most problems in life can be cured with some good training. A good friend once told me that. And I believe him.
