Every computer software needs an update now and then so that it can perform better, and so are you! There are many ways to update or upgrade yourself, read and learn, observe and learn get feedback and also learn, by so doing you will be prepared for any new opportunities and adventures. Learning is the most important part of the upgrade, don’t just read but read and observe to learn, there is no point on reading or observing without having an open mind to learn.
Most successful people in whatever area you may think of, are great learners. If you are not ready to learn then you are not ready to grow. Learn from your mistakes and do better than you did last time. Learn from other people’s mistakes and avoid them for yourself. The best way to learn is through experience and studying.
Study and show thyself approved… 2 Timothy 2:15
Knowledge is power, it transforms your mind and enlightens your thoughts. There is a reason why a degree holder gets a better job than a high school certificate holder; it is for the simple reason that a degree holder is more knowledgeable than a high school certificate holder. Embrace knowledge and make your life to be in a quest to know more than you did yesterday.
When I finished my degree at the university I told myself that I do not want to go back to school again! I declared it with my mouth and indeed every time I decided to pursue more on my studies I just couldn’t do it. It is not because of anything else but because acquiring more knowledge was going to be painful for me so I dreaded it and would stop every time after I made the application. My peers did professional courses and have finished, right now there are eligible for more salaries and a better lifestyle because there were able to sacrifice the comfort at that time. If I were to go back to the workplace again, I would earn less than they do because there are more knowledgeable than me. Knowledge and rewards go hand in hand, the less you know the less your reward. You are rewarded for your knowledge and skills not for anything else!
Knowledge places you in a pedestal for you to be able to reach your goals. You need to know your industry, you need to know every process of your industry or any area that which you are interested in. Know the terms used on that industry and know every level in which you could possibly go through. Know that which others say would be a waste of time and know that which they believe is the right thing to know. Research on the internet and read books about your area of interest and in 4 years’ time you will have knowledge equivalent to a degree.
For instance learn how you can be the best personal assistant or secretary, learn every accounting process if you are an accountant or interested in accounting, learn and be the best at it. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes because that is the best way to learn. Strive to be better than yesterday and want to be the best at it. If somebody can do it, then you can also do it and maybe better.
Learn new things every day and the task for you this week is to learn and note one new thing that you have learnt during the week. This should be your weekly task and observe how much you would have learned by end of year and how that knowledge will add value to your life. Every little good thing that you learn is valuable and may bring a major change in your entire life! Never be lazy to learn.
