Learning shouldn’t stop with the diploma.



Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. – Henry Ford

Besides being put on this earth to accomplish our purpose and enjoy our passions, we are here to continually learn and grow. Taking time out of your day to learn about your passions is a good thing. We all need balance in our life, so remember to include this time in your day as well.

Learning to increase our knowledge of something positive that will help us or those around us should be considered constructive selfishness. Learning and growing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually are the absolute greatest gifts you can give to yourself and your loved ones. Why? Because as you grow and become more mature in each of these areas you will find who you really are. This allows us to become our best self. Being our best self creates happiness within that will then overflow into our relationships.

Life is about relationships. We do not show love to others if we are not happy ourselves. When we are happy with who we are, we help others see that it’s okay to be who they are. So spend some time being constructively selfish. As you become your best through new knowledge and wisdom, you will reflect that in all of your interactions with others.

Action step: Give yourself permission to be selfish today, so you can be your best tomorrow. Not sure where to start? Shoot me an email and we can discuss a plan: jenny@jenniferhester.com



Why increase your knowledge?

Knowledge changes things. When you begin to learn and open your mind to new ideas you will never be able to go back to the way you use to think. The new knowledge will change old perceptions. As your perceptions begin to change, you change with them. This is a good thing. We are meant to grow and learn. Life was never meant for us to get into one mindset and stay there, although some people do.



This week I listened to Jim Rohn, who is a very successful entrepreneur. Mr. Rohn shared his message with thousands of people over the years about how he became so successful. One of the key strategies he shares is to increase your knowledge. Read, listen to audiobooks, and learn from others who are doing what you want to do. Increase your knowledge every way you can.

It’s not about increasing you knowledge in just one area, but all areas. Those areas are mind, body, spirit, finances, and relationships. As you increase your knowledge in these areas, you will make positive changes in your life. As you learn about finances you will begin to make wise decisions about spending and investing. As you increase your knowledge about your body, you will want to know what you’re putting into your body. You will want to know what’s in those processed foods and you will begin to skip them and choose healthy food alternatives. The same will go with every aspect of your life.

If you don’t like to read then search the internet for podcasts. There are podcasts on anything you want to learn about these days. One way to start the habit is to commit to listening to one podcast a day or even start with one a week. Start small and increase your listening time a little every month. You are going to love what this does for your mindset. Start this week and don’t put it off. This is an easy way to begin to Invite Excellence into your Life. Go out and share your AWESOME with the world.
