Have you ever heard the phrase, "life long learner"? Most have. A life long learner is one that strives to continue learning rather than becoming complacent with where he or she might me. It doesn't mean you are aiming to leave your current employment or make radical life changes, it simply means you want to learn, know, and be all you can be. This helps improve job performance, self-esteem, and keeps your brain active.
If you are on the flip side of the coin, you might find us constant learners to be boring and out-of-control because of the inner drive motivating us to learn more. This is okay BUT I want to challenge you. The quote above reads, "I consider this world to be like a school and our lives to be the classrooms." I believe Oprah Winfrey is recognizing we are ALL life-long learners, just in different capacities. EVERYONE with breath in their lungs, that's you, is a life long leaner.
To live in this world requires us to always be thinking, making choices, and learning how to survive in this fast-paced, ever-changing, and challenging world we live in. It's this reason I suggest WE ARE ALL LIFE-LONG LEARNERS! Some are doing it in the classroom or an office while others are in the trenches and experiencing life in a way some will never personally feel.
Regardless of where you are on the spectrum of life-long learning, will you share with us today? What is the greatest lesson you learned or taught to another? Is there a time you went to prayer first and then responded the way the Lord answered? How did that impact the lesson learned? What is your learning goal for the year? Or, are you praying to survive so you have a story to tell?
Share ONE lesson you learned...
