It still amazes me that people will spend thousands of dollars on a degree or diploma to specialize in a field of study because they will graduate from a certain school, with no guaranty of success, but they will not spend a fraction of that on a seminar or a webinar for fear of getting scammed!?!?!?
If you limit where you get your knowledge from you are limiting your chances for success. The younger generation knows this. They are exploring everything, learning in non-traditional ways, using non-traditional tools to grow their knowledge on any subject of interest.
Why is that?
Are they smarter than their predecessors? Do they have access to information that is not available to the rest of us? Or are they not afraid to explore and learn from many different avenues.
You see, we live in the information age whether you like it or not. People who are focused on success are looking for the advantage so they can achieve a head start. They go to the internet and research a subject and watch videos, take webinars, read articles all for one reason. They want to get a head of you. But wait, you are reading this so you are getting a head start on those that are watching TMZ right now.
Growth only stops when you decide you no longer need to grow.
Your ambition doesn’t need to have a limit. You can keep reaching. I work out at the gym and realized that I had stopped challenging myself. I was lifting the same weight for a few months so I decided to become stronger and lift more weight each week.
The same holds true for knowledge. You can decide to learn more about a subject. The more you know the better advantage you have. You should never be satisfied with what you know about a certain subject. You should constantly try to discover more and become better at what you do and know. One way to achieve this is to surround yourself with people that know more than you about certain things even if those things are not the subject at hand.
Because learning about other things will often spark something in your brain and allow it to make a connection with the subject at hand.
I call it, creating the conditions to bring success into your life. Successful people know how to succeed and you can learn and grow just by being around them. You can inspire them to grow while at the same time become inspired.
Are you focused on success?
To create the conditions for success you first have to focus on it. You have to think about success all the time and make no apologies for your ambitions. Your ambition is your fuel for your success, whenever anyone tells you that you can’t do something, they are (Usually unknowingly) taking away your ambition. Don’t let them. Stay focused on what you believe you can accomplish. When someone decides to take a seminar or webinar, often people make comments that are discouraging about it. Negativity is like a pass time for some people. If you feel that you can gain some knowledge and further your growth then forge forward. Actively seek success and draw it to you.
At the end of the day what you are really looking for is happiness and a feeling of accomplishment. Your ambition will bring this to you as long as you don’t let someone kill it. You must guard it and protect it. Grow it and nurture it. Groom it until it is ready to blossom.
Understand there is a cost to learning.
Whether you learn in a class room at night school, on the job, or at a seminar or on-line course, everything cost time and money. But what is more expensive is the cost of not learning.
- Missed opportunities because you didn’t set the conditions for success.
- Missed opportunities because you were not prepared when the chance to succeed came your way.
- Missed opportunities because you let someone kill you ambition.
What price can you put on that?
Can you afford to stop learning?
