Our capacity to learn from birth, until around eighteen is dramatic; this accelerated learning curve equips us to learn a staggering amount in a very short space of time. We learn language, culture, manners, social skills, history, science, and mathematics-everything that makes us human. For some people this accelerated learning curve continues long after their eighteenth birthday and continues for most of their lives, but unfortunately for most people, it levels off as soon as soon as they get their first job. People are just inherently lazy, if there are no more exams to take, why waste time reading books or trying to grow your knowledge.
Look at a new born baby and then look at an eighteen year old adult. Can you see the dramatic growth that has occurred in a mere eighteen years? Can you imagine if you continue that accelerated growth curve, for the rest of your life and every eighteen years, you get to see the same dramatic growth in yourself? Can you imagine how you can accelerate your personal growth and how you will stand out from the herd? Imagine what you could become, the skills you could learn, the capacities you could develop, it is just too staggering to imagine.
Amazingly, even if you are in your late fifties or even sixties, it is not too late to rekindle that hunger for knowledge, which you had until you were eighteen. You can rekindle your appetite for learning at any time in your life. Begin feeding your mind and educating your philosophy, starting right now, by following the writings of people that have recorded their thoughts and shared their ideas with us through, books, magazines, video and audio recordings.
Amazing, influential people that have gone before us have left a trail of knowledge behind them. Winston Churchill may no longer be here, but we still have his books filled with untold wisdom. Aristotle has been gone for centuries, yet we still have access to his amazing ideas and philosophies. There are so many opportunities and a myriad of different ways to feed your mind and indulge in a feast of intellectual feeding.
There are also so many opportunities for us to do some talking and sharing with people around us. People that can help you to answer the important life questions, people that can help you to refine your own philosophy, assist you to weigh your values and help you to ponder all the questions you have about success and lifestyle.
Take all the wisdom that you gather from books, videos, audio programs and through discussion with mentors and use them all, as the building blocks for the success and on-going growth you desire. Commit to constantly improve and keep making the small daily adjustments to your philosophy and activities, this will keep you growing and ensure that you are constantly becoming more. These small almost imperceptible changes, over time add up to become very significant.
Commit to re-fire yor accelerated learning curve and continue to feed your mind with great information and new ideas. Continue to grow and develop, it is never too late to commit to learning and growth. As you grow and become more, you will most certainly continue to attract more. Each new idea will keep refining your philosophy, which will better guide your life and the rest of your life will unfold in the most magical of ways.
