Every decent job, today, demands more skill and LIFELONG LEARNING. Stop LEARNING and you could find yourself not able to hold a job. The work world today is where we can analyze, prophesize and optimize with a precision unknown in human history.
The notion that we can go to college for four years and then spend that knowledge for the next thirty years is over. If you want to be a lifelong employee anywhere today, YOU HAVE TO BE A LIFELONG LEARNER. And that means: MORE IS ON YOU. And that means SELF-MOTIVATION TO LEARN AND KEEP LEARNING BECOMES THE MOST IMPORTANT LIFE SKILL.
Having an agile LEARNING mind-set is the new skill set of the 21st century. Practice enables anyone to accelerate learning for the AGE OF ACCELERATION. This calls for DELIBERATE PRACTICE, a process that takes 10,000 hours to MASTER A SKILL. Making the effort every day to practice and continue to LEARN will enable you to OWN YOUR OWN FUTURE.
The EFFORT, the TIME, the DETERMINATION, the WILLING TO MAKE MISTAKES, the RESILIENCE, the PATIENCE, the BELIEF IN THE PROCESS, the CONFIDENCE, the ENTHUSIASM, the GRATITUDE that you HONESTLY put into the PROCESS will definitely have YOU OWNING YOUR FUTURE.
So, why are you hesitating, why are you saying tomorrow? Today is here, start NOW, start OWNING YOUR FUTURE. Everybody else is doing it.
OWN YOUR FUTURE, LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY. BE BETTER TODAY THAN YESTERDAY
