How would it feel to live a life you love. Think about it for a second.
Would you wake up energised and vibrant, eagerly anticipating the dawn of this, a new day to share your greatness with the world and strive for success?
Would you actually look forward to the alarm ringing, waking you up to complete your morning routine and squeeze every moment out of the glorious day ahead?
Yes. Yes you would.
I can say that with certainty, because that's where I find myself today - teaching, coaching, and inspiring my tribe of fellow Cause Crusaders to aim high, travel wide, and unlock their true potential which has been trapped, waiting to be revealed. It's been an interesting journey though, one with ups, downs, and merry-go-rounds. And in so many ways, that's the best part. After all, how dull would this life be if we weren't testing, trying, building new habits to increase our willpower and drive to achieve, meeting new people, and having fun along the way.
You see, that's the key that I've discovered after years spent travelling my unique path, and I want to share it with you. Living a life you love is only possible if you get out there and find it. But how do you 'find' something?
You learn what it is.
That's the key. To find what lights your fire and live a life you love, you must spend time learning. Then, once you find what fills your soul with passion, love, and joy, you'll have created the life you've dreamed of as part of the process.
Learning: The key that opens any door
If you’re a follower of Tony Robbins like I am, you’ll know that one of his popular philosophies referenced in the incredible book Awaken the Giant Within is:
’When you stop learning, you die’.
(If you haven’t read the book, I recommend you get your copy here. It’ll be the best $10 you spend on yourself this week)
It’s a powerful statement that Tony lives and breathes, and so do I. Learning is part of life, and it’s a key part of the journey to create the life you were born to live.
Because when you learn, the impossible becomes possible.
3 easy ways to kickstart your learning today
Yes, learning takes time and yes, you may be required to invest money at some point as well. This is your future though, so think twice about spending your precious resources on things that don't serve your personal development (cafe Latte's, 5pm beers, and fancy sports cars as examples) and invest it in your growth instead. Give yourself the self education and respect you deserve..
Take small steps. Create the life you were born to live by building a habit of learning every single day. Here are some ways you can do it.
1. Read books
Simple, and effective beyond explanation. Centuries gone have seen great men and women who have achieved incredible feats, discovered unimaginable wonders, and recorded a wealth of knowledge in the pages of their books. Reading is the cheapest, easiest, and one of the most effective ways of learning from greats both past and present. If you're not reading, then I encourage you to start tomorrow. Check out the KAC Book Club for the reads that I've found valuable.
2. Do an online course
In this, the digital age, it's never been easier or more affordable to access high quality education at any time of any day. It's what makes the many other wonderful causes such as mine possible, and I fully support the work of other inspiring 'Cause Crusaders' who I feel provide the quality and thoroughness that I seek. One such course is the Time Management Mastery course offered on Udemy. However, if you've got your time under control and want to learn other skills that will accelerate your journey, then I recommend you check out the huge range of courses available on Udemy first.
3. Try a new activity
Sometimes sitting at home with a book or your computer learning all on your own isn't much fun. It's at these times when having someone to share your journey can be most rewarding. Whether it be a loved one, or best friend, you need like-minded people you can 'pitch and catch' ideas with, and fill the human need of connection in the process. Find these new people through activities that align with your values and beliefs, and which you genuinely enjoy participating in. Check out Meetup to find groups in your area that align with your interests, and just go to one! It's not as scary as you think.
Open books, open minds
A book unopened is a story untold. Open your mind to as many books as you can and receive learnings of all the wisdom of the ages with open eyes, ears, and an open heart.
One day in the not too distant future, you will have an equally great story to tell. Who knows, maybe you will stand next to greats such as Anthony Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, the Dalai Lama, and many others. Endless possibilities await when you learn how to attain them.
Don't wait. Start learning today, and unlock your true potential to be great.
