We all want to become interesting and have a lot of talents but what we don’t want to feel like a tumbling fool. But you have to know something that in order to succeed in life you have failed. Because failure prepare you for the success.
So if you try to learn new things you will stay humble at the things that you know that you can do. And you will remember the frustrations that you have to get through to achieve the level that you are today. So it has two advantages you will learn something new and you will become a better person.
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
Learning new things makes you more confident. Now you know that you should learn new things every day. It became necessary if you are in your 30’s or above to learn. Because learning new things keep your mind sharp by doing that you will able to navigate through life which much more ease.
Your brain is muscle like every other muscle in your body the same principle apply to it use it or loss it. For example if you do not use your legs for a long time like when you go to space or long bed rest due to some medical condition you start to loss the strength in legs.
If it is going for a long time you can even loss the strength to walk. That is why astronauts who had spent a long time in space are carried in arm when they land on earth because they have lost the strength in there muscle to even stand up.
So think about your brain when you do not work it for 5 to 10 years what will happen to it. But some of you may be thinking that I do my daily activity which use brain. But the amount of brain power to do those things is reduced because your mind had formed a habit of it.
Our mind is a great machine it tries to use as little energy to do anything as possible. In past it was important for our survival because the food was scares and we do not know when then we will get the next meal.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
So when you learn new thing a lot of your brain power is used because there are no habits to make it easy. That is the reason when you try to learn new things in the start it is difficult but as time passes your mind make habits so that the activity become easy for us. That is why if you keep learning new things then your mind is always working on new challenges in return always in peak condition.
Learning new things can be fun if you want a proof look at the children. They really enjoy learning new things finding out things that they do not know. The main reason we are so against learning because when we were small kids we enter school where we have to sit and listen to a person blab about stuff for 45 minutes which is not the best way to learn at all. We humans need connection and a sense an achievement which is not there.
So stop and think about what are the things that you want to learn and start learning them now. You do not have to wait for the perfect time to start because there is no perfect time. So start small like 15 min every day for 30 days just do that and you will see improvement in yourself and you will keep going.
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
