Since you are already here, reading this, it means that you are searching for ways to improve yourself and become who you truly feel you can be.
You are not alone. You are part of the millions of people looking for their purpose in life.
While this is different for each one of us, the purpose and the process, we all have one thing in common: learning.
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” – Albert Einstein
Learning is the never-ending process of improving oneself.
The more you start learning about the things you are interested in, the more you realise that an array of new things to be learned opens up in front of you and you are never truly finished.
At least know this one thing.
After all, Socrates did say
“I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”
Well, he knew one thing, at least.
The process of learning is quite simple, and it comes down to incorporating several habits into your day–to–day life.
These will help you look at things differently, and changing the way you do them will change you for the better.
“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo
Your first step towards your personal growth is going through this list of advice thoroughly.
Make a plan for each, and think when and how you are going to implement these into your daily life.
You see, without a well-thought-out plan, personal growth is impossible.
However, if you have a plan without any action, personal growth is nothing but theory and no practice.
This being said, here’s the list of the most useful tips to boost your learning process successfully:
Spend more time with people you look up to.
There is a certain vibration we all vibrate on. Some vibrate on a higher level, some on a lower – it’s the simple physics of the universe.
The higher you are, the closer you will be to your better self, to fulfilling your purpose and being happy.
Good news is that you can consciously alter vibrations.
They can be increased or lowered by changing the way you look at things happening around you.
For instance, if you are seeking to grow personally surround yourself with people that are already what you strive towards.
Successful people will always inspire you to work on yourself and never stop learning at any point in your life.
If at the moment, you don’t have those people around you, there are still things you can do.
Read biographies, listen to motivational speakers, and real-life success stories of people who achieved their better self already.
Let the change of environment be the first step towards hacking your learning process.
Think BIG but start small.
Set a goal so big that it makes you jump from bed every morning to reach it.
When you find something so ‘outside the box’, it gives you energy and gets you going every day.
This way, you will be motivated to learn and improve yourself – gain the skills you need to reach your goal.
Inevitably, in the process, you will reach potential growth as well.
However, don’t forget the part where you need to start small and split the goal into small chunks.
This is because by not doing so, you might feel overwhelmed and quit the entire process beforehand.
Exercise your brain every day.
Unlike robots and machines that grow weary, the more we use them, our brains are quite the opposite – the more we use them, the better they become.
A healthy brain is your way to more effective learning and personal growth.
Numerous studies have proven that learning a new language, reading or even searching the internet can be favourable to you.
“Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people.” – Tena Desae
These activities slow down the cognitive ageing of the brain, improve its functionality to serve you better throughout your life.
With the help of technology, there are many ways to gain new skills nowadays.
Refuse to settle.
Don’t settle for what you already know how to use. Step out of your comfort zone instead, and use new tools and platforms for learning.
Subscribe to email newsletters from blogs that offer valuable information in return. You can sign up for online courses, virtual seminars or conferences, or even try new phone applications.
There are a million possibilities if only you have the will to do it.
Truth is, the more active you are, the lower your risk of diseases like dementia is.
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele
Include physical exercise and a healthy diet.
In addition to ‘brain exercises’, exercising your body puts your brain in shape too.
It reduces the chances of short-term memory loss and improves your overall lifestyle quality.
The hormones of happiness are being released, and besides feeling better, you are protecting your brain against certain diseases.
A few of which include the risk of neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline.
Cognitive decline affects processing speed, executive function, and visuospatial skills.
Too much slouching at home or sitting at work can literally kill you.
Additionally, food is critical when it comes to brain health.
If you don’t have healthy eating habits, you need to learn how to get back on track with food too.
This is return allows you efficient learning, memorising easier, taking you a step closer to your personal growth.
Demand and expect a lot from yourself.
Growing as a process stands for accomplishing something far more, far higher than where you stand right now.
To put yourself in a position for personal growth, you need to demand more from yourself.
Keep on setting higher goals and as you reach them, set even higher ones.
This way, you are continuously expanding your consciousness and skills.
Once you start doing this, you are unable to stop because you see the rewarding fruit of your growth.
Stay curious, no matter what.
Lastly, no matter how much education and wisdom you acquire over the years, you can’t afford to stop.
It would be best if you continued looking for the next big thing to avoid being overrun by innovation.
The world is moving forward rapidly, and it’s hard to keep up unless you use your 24 hours smartly.
This is why you need to adapt and move forward with it.
By striving to know more and incorporating these strategies, you are automatically learning how to consume knowledge.
This knowledge, therefore, will serve you as a fundamental part of your personal growth.
I commend you if you’ve already started to hack your learning process and improve yourself.
