W.I.N. Wednesday: The beautiful thing about learning.
"The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you."
Learning is something you control. A teacher, trainer or coach can help you to learn, they can create great learning environments, they can inspire you to want to learn, but they cannot make you learn. Once you make the choice to learn however, it opens up tremendous opportunities for you to continue to learn and grow. Learning opens the door to a whole new world of possibilities.
Learning is not restricted to the classroom. In fact, the majority of learning takes place outside of the formal educational settings. It comes from reading, listening, doing, reflecting, engaging, discussing, debating, doing, questioning, listening, connecting, imagining, doing, succeeding, failing, reflecting, repeating.
Learning is fluid. The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know and how much you still get to learn. Learning can help to shape beliefs and change beliefs.
As legendary Blues artist B.B. King pointed outs, once you learn something nobody can take it away from you. That does not mean that you should hold on tightly to it. The other beautiful about learning is that you can choose to give it away, to share it.
The real power from learning comes from sharing what you are learning, how it connects to what you already knew, and how it helps to solve problems (yours and others). Sharing what you are learning will initiate conversations, discussions, dialogues and debates. These will result in deeper learning, begin to connect the dots, reveal other topics you can choose to learn about and other sources of learning you may not have been familiar with.
What’s Important Now? Learning is a choice. Choose to learn. Choose to share what you are learning and choose to inquire of others what they are learning.
