Tony Robbins teaches “CANI” which is Constant and Neverending Improvement.
I truly believe that learning and trying new things at any age is what keeps us youthful, energetic, vibrant, and sleeping well at night! If we are learning and growing we are excited about life and looking forward to each new day.
The opposite is a less rosy scenario. Feeling stuck in a rut, same old routines, feeling old, feeling like we are less mentally sharp, feeling bored, no energy, dreading getting up in the morning, lack of purpose, etc… this state breeds depression, apathy, and anxiety (not the stuff of happy well lived days and restful nights of sleep).
Today I invite you to think about what you would like to learn how to do. Perhaps this is something you already know a bit about but would like to deepen your understanding. Maybe there is something completely different (some kind of class perhaps) being offered in your community that would be fun to try?
Fall is a great time to try some new things. The air is cooler and change is in the air!
Ready to try this? Let’s see… my journal entry this beautiful morning may look something like…
This Fall, I want to learn:
1. more about the history of the South. I live in Florida now and this area is rich with history that I would like to know more about. I am especially enchanted with Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina…
2. more about wines! I enjoy my evening glass but don’t know a whole lot about it. What is the difference between a $50.00 bottle of wine and a $10.00 one? I would like to go to wine tastings and do some reading about it. When we can afford to, it is a dream of mine to visit Tuscany, Italy and Napa Valley, California.
3. I want to go to a dance class and learn some moves!
4. How to get published in this increasingly changing technological world.
I have many more ideas for myself but wish to stop here so that you may start your entry.
Have a blessed day!
Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. ~Chinese Proverb
As you move into your weekend, here are five journal writing prompts for your quiet YOU time:
Have a beautiful day and weekend,
If we are not learning, we are not growing. For a journal writing exercise tonight, list some things that you would like to learn more about. Don’t edit yourself. Write down anything you have an interest in. Don’t worry about what it would take to educate yourself about these topics. What are you interested in? What have you always been curious about? What do you feel like you never really got as a youth in school and would now like to understand it better?
Here would be a few things on my list- I want to learn more about:
That’s my list. Your turn…..
