It isn’t what the book costs; it’s what it will cost you if you don’t read it. (Jim Rohn)

Brian Tracy: “Your life is never the same after you discover continuous learning, leaders are readers. If you want to be more successful on the outside you have to become more on the inside. You must be all the time continue upgrading your knowledge and skills. You can change all things for the better when you change yourself for the better. You may just be one idea away from transforming your life and you have to reaffirm the profound idea of learning and learning…. Continuous learning is your key to unlocking unlimited success and growth. That alone is life transforming.”

“It isn’t what the book costs; it’s what it will cost you if you don’t read it.” (Jim Rohn)

John Maxwell: “Learning never stops. Yesterday’s learning will keep me where I am. Today learning is only to be enough for today. Today is for today only. It got me on a path of growth which created an appetite to grow that has never stopped.I just see the benefits of it in so many ways. I can’t imagine going one day without learning something, experiencing something new, and then passing it on to others.”

“You must take on responsibility for your own education.” (Jim Rohn)

Zig Ziglar said: “When you finish school you don’t finish your education; it is a lifetime matter.’ Education goes on and on….. Education gets you a job. Self education gets you rich; formal education makes you a living; self education makes you a fortune. Never seize your quest for knowledge and development; thirst for ideas that can be life changing; and then learn to pass it on, and pass it on to your children.”

Where would you start if you wanted to improve your life? For things to change for you, you have to change! It’s about a mindset and attitude that will lead to actions!

Learning is earning

learning-is-earning

Learning Equals Earning. True or False?

The answer is True.

It might surprise you how many people think the answer is false. And they use the examples of well-known people who are extraordinarily wealthy but did not finish school. The most frequently used example is Bill Gates, who famously dropped out of Harvard and went on to become the wealthiest person on the planet.

But very few of us will be like Bill Gates. Rather, most of us earn income the old fashioned way – by getting jobs that pay well.

Learning is part of economic survival for most of us. If we don’t stay current, up to date, and continuously re-skilled in our professions (regardless of what they are), we fall behind. Thomas Picketty, the economist who wrote Capital in the 21st Century, stated it clearly in the quote below:

Over more than 300 years of history, the only predictable factor that drives individual earnings potential is “skills and knowledge.”

Learn and grow, or go obsolete.
