Seven Ways Not to Break Learning From Everyday Life

Thursday, 10 July 2014 0 comments

Realize the power of your mind is limitless. Believe in that, and you will see that life is just one giant education, inspiring brilliance every single day.

Learning

1. Be confident and let go of self-limitations.

Before you can learn anything at all, you have to believe that you are able to do so. Let go of all the limits that you or other people have set for your own intelligence. If you don’t simply believe in your ability to keep learning, there is no way you will.

2. Find what interests you, and expand your knowledge of it in on a daily basis.

Simply seeking out interesting articles and videos can make a significant difference in your general knowledge of a variety of subjects. Listen to podcasts while you work, or keep up with a blog that really makes you think. Your brain is like a muscle that just needs a little exercise to keep moving and expanding in it’s strengths.

3. Participate in activities that inspire you to be creative.

There is a common misconception that humans need to fit into intellectual boxes. This isn’t true. Being well rounded is vital. Exercise your creativity in life. Music, art, crafts, and hobbies of all kinds inspire thoughts that are different from reading or memorization of facts. Innovative thinkers are the building blocks of this world, allow yourself to think outside of the box and be creative.

4. Realize that arrogance is just as much a thief of knowledge as insecurity is.

The moment you stop being able to learn from others is the moment you completely stunt your ability to grow. Listen to others; you may be immensely surprised by what they have to offer. Sometimes the most grave and remarkable knowledge is obtained from the least expected of people and places, so be open to it.

5. Talk to your friends and families about their careers, studies, and interests.

Friends and family prove to be an excellent source of knowledge that should not be wasted. The people that surround you have studied different subjects and work in occupational positions that give them an entirely different perspective than your own. You may be surprised how much you can learn from simply asking about their jobs and studies instead of asking how they spent their weekend.

6. Exercise and be healthy.

Try to think more when you exercise. The endorphins released during physical activity free up your mind of stress and waste. Exercising actually physically clears your mind and is a wonderful way to start thinking of new ideas or contemplating different topics you don’t usually have time to think about when they are mixed with everyday thoughts.

7. Be brave enough to enable controversial conversations and debates.

People tend to shy away from inciting conversations about politics, religion, or any topic that may inspire controversy. Debating is healthy; it doesn’t have to be harmful. Be respectful and understanding of the beliefs of others, and realize that you can learn from them, even if you do not agree. Sometimes you learn more if you do not agree because defending positions can be really eye-opening. Entirely comfortable conversation can restrain the quality of the conversation.
