Keep Learning to Reach Your Goals

"To get profit without risk, experience without danger, and reward without work, is as impossible as it is to live without being born", wrote A. P. Gouthey. Every person who has attained something worth-while has worked for that goal.

Cary Grant said, "I do believe that people can do practically anything they set out to do if they apply themselves diligently and learn."

Which path is the right way towards your goal...

Do you need more education?

Do you need a few years experience in your field of business?

Maybe you need a teacher or Mentor.

"I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached, as by the obstacles which are overcome while trying to succeed", wrote Booker T. Washington.

What obstacles are in your way?

Consider them as easy to pass through as hurdles are to a champion runner. Take each obstacle as a special challenge placed especially for you. Approach it with intelligence and courage, then learn what it has to teach.

"Success is a journey," said Ben Sweetland, "not a destination." For some, the process of attainment is the attainment itself. They move on, keep growing and expanding. There is no still water at the top.

"The message from the moon is that no problem need any longer be considered insoluble", wrote Norman Cousins. And you can attain anything that seems impossible.

If you have a problem that needs to be solved, sit calmly and consider it with a clear mind. Observe all the consequences of the actions- both good and bad.

Gently ponder the paths and actions and contemplate the core of the problem.

The solution will appear.

"Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you for everyone who asketh, receiveth. He that seeketh, findeth and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened." - Jesus of Nazareth

Tap the inner self and encourage positive actions.

With each outgoing breath, release the impossible; at each incoming breath, inhale the attainable. Command the best of yourself, but don't despair from an overused sense of perfection.

What can you learn?

And who can teach you?

Can you attend classes and seminars from universities near home? Check out books from the libraries and absorb the material. Find a master and become an apprentice.

"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.

Never stop learning; never stop growing and expanding as a person and in your personal endeavor.
