Student of Life

Student of Life

Student of life is the goal that all of us  should all be aiming for. Life is all about having as many varied experiences as possible.

When we have challenges or make mistakes, we should choose to become better as a result. Personal improvement is what being a student of life is all about.

Based upon the principle of “free will”, a person could choose to abstain from being a student of life and ignore any possible lessons that are present, in spite of the fact this would be foolish.

We may never be perfect or reach mastery at everything we pursue, yet we will create vastly more meaningful memories and quality experiences when we are a student of life.

People who have an attitude that they are “too cool for school” miss out on the benefits of being a student of life. Learning is neither age restricted nor something only geeks do.

The most successful people throughout the world are observant individuals who learn through the experiences of others as well as their own. They are masters at being a student of life.

Lessons are around us in all we encounter, regardless if it is perceived as good or bad. Pain is a very special teacher as it always carries with it specific knowledge.

What we do with this new knowledge demonstrates how astute we are as as a student of life. I encourage everyone to become the very best student they can be and live incredible lives.

All the best,

Learning from Failure

Learning from failure is a habit that highly successful people do. They know that repeating the same mistakes again in the future with equally lead to further failure and waste time, money and other precious resources.

Learning from failure is not difficult to do, yet it does take self discipline as well as the willingness to accept that there is a better choice to make when faced with similar circumstances in the future.

There may be some folks who are hesitant toward and resistant to learning from failure. These people will doom themselves to keep repeating the same painful mistakes time after time again.

Learning from failure is the natural progression of maturing with age. Part of becoming older is acquiring wisdom, which many times may come as the consequence of pain and/or failure.

Once we start consistently learning from failure, life does seem to be more under our control. This is the advantageous place for us to be since it enables more happiness and life becomes less stressful.

I encourage everyone to adopt the wise habit of learning from failure. Make it a regular part of all you do. Grow healthier, wealthier and wiser as you proceed onward with your life.

All the best,
