Looking At Life Like It's One Big Classroom

2 Apr

Hello all.
Life is one big classroom, filled with many lessons. When you look at life like a classroom, events and things that come along will make more sense to you. For example when something upsets you during the day, you can take it as a learning lesson. When you start looking at life like you are supposed to learn lessons, life actually becomes more exciting. The reason it becomes more exciting, is because you look at things with a healthy curiosity. Those that are curious, usually seek answers to questions they were never aware of. Those that are rigid with one way of doing things, never allow the curiosity to come out of them and don’t learn much.

“Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

-Ghandi

The great thing that I’ve personally taken on was to be enthusiastic about learning new things. The more enthusiastic I got by wanting to learn, the more exciting life became. The world is changing fast, the more enthusiastic you and I get about learning new things, allows us to experience life like it was one big classroom, filled with exciting lessons. Some lessons are harder to learn than others, but just the fact that you acknowledge the fact that you are learning, gives you the opportunity to live a more beyond successful life.

Many people that are stuck and confused in life, are generally people that say they know it all. There is no way to know it all, if we knew it all we wouldn’t be here (earth). If life is one big classroom, it would be a good idea to be enthusiastic about each new learning experience.
Everyday presents new lessons, just the idea of that excites me.

    Awesome post. I was wondering, because I am a person who has such a level of curiosity, do you ever feel tired? Like, do you ever have a day when you feel like you have brain overload?

    @Trysh No not really. I choose what I want to accept in my “brain.” Through experience you learn how much you can handle, and when you are about to enter brain overload, and how to guard against it. There is this an effective principle I use called the 80/20 principle. Google it, it might be helpful for you if you experience brain overload.
