Lifelong Learning Helps You Stay Sharp And Relevant

Today, I’d like you to reflect on the intentions you set for yourself at the beginning of this year. What has been easy? What has been challenging? Do you need to make changes in your intentions or your approach?

Reinvention Includes Continuous Learning

In order to remain vibrant, we must keep our mental faculties actively engaged. One way to do this is to commit to lifelong learning.

When was the last time you took a really good class? Many people are looking to build skills they already have — professional or personal — but many are looking to learn something completely new. Perhaps you’re ready to explore a subject you’ve always been interested in but have never had the time to pursue. And remember, learning something fun is still learning!

When I was teaching in the public school system, we were required to submit documentation of our ongoing learning. Seminars, workshops and courses had to be related to our certification. That same approach may work to your advantage.

If you’re in the process of identifying your purpose, taking classes can inspire you. Rather than selecting random courses, consider searching for classes or programs related to a particular field of interest. That way, you’re gaining knowledge and experience that could help you home in on your purpose. One seminar could be the spark to ignite your inner light.

A Few Advantages of Lifelong Learning

• Helps your mind stay sharp
• Builds self-confidence
• Introduces you to new people
• Keeps you current in your field
• Introduces you to new skills or subjects
• Provides fodder for conversation

Recognizing the benefits can motivate you to dive in. And from that point, there’ll be no turning back! Personally, I’m in a perpetual learning mode. As an Inspired Aging™ Motivational Speaker and Holistic Wellness coach, it’s important that I remain current in my area of expertise.

Continuous learning improves your quality of life and enables you to view yourself as relevant!

While there are advantages to traditional onsite learning, this is the golden time for online education. It’s convenient and interactive, all from the comforts of your home. Due to the pandemic, more people are looking to virtual courses and much more is being offered online. Whether you’re interested in tap dancing, creative writing, cake decorating, graphic design, figure drawing, or photography, the possibilities are endless.

Consider This  
There’s no better time than now to prepare for the second half of your life. You know that college degree you’ve been thinking about since you were 21? Or that certificate you’ve been considering that will advance your career? Go get it! But be mindful of how you’re going to use your new credentials to make the world a better place.
