The Habit Of Learning | My Experience + Lessons

Hello my readers! 

Learning something new has been a game changer for me and here is why. 

[A little back story]

I started my journey during the Covid-19 lockdown because I didn’t have anything to do that was important except doing the dishes. I scrolled YouTube and subscribed to channels that shared interesting content. I remember being interested in femininity videos because some of the things that were shared I could do at home. I became so addicted to watching videos on YouTube and most would say that it’s an unhealthy relationship, but I wanted to know more and get some tips and tricks for living your best life. I started coming across channels that were more educational, I could learn about finance, social media and  side hustles you can hop on. And I would look for books that were recommended in some of the videos (pdfs mostly). It helped me a lot with how I viewed life in that period of time and I believed that I am capable of doing more with my life.

Here are some of the things I have learnt from investing in learning something new:

Mindset Shift – Whenever you learn new things, you are eager to do more for yourself, whether its building your self-confidence or investing in the craft that you were laying aside for a while.

You become more interesting. – Remember those intelligent conversations? Learning something new will help you engage in those conversations. Even if it’s about business or anything, when you share interesting points, people will be like, wow, he/she knows stuff and they want to engage with you more and opportunities will come knocking at your door.

You become more diverse –  James Clear stated in his book, Atomic Habits, that the more you let a single belief define you, the less capable you are of adapting when life challenges you. So, when you invest in learning something new, you are creating room to adapt to changes that may come into your life.

Another thing to note, when you are investing in learning, you need to put it in motion. For example, YouTube is a great learning platform, but sometimes you get stuck on watching videos and spend less time on taking action. So, just make sure that what you learn translates to improving your life for the better.

Feel free to share some of the things you have gained from learning something new in the comment section.

    YouTube is really great for learning. The little I learnt on copy writing has helped me to sell products and events better than I would have a few years ago

    I love how you shared your personal story and how learning something new has positively impacted your life. It’s inspiring to see how you took advantage of a difficult situation and turned it into a growth opportunity. Your insights on the benefits of learning, such as a mindset shift, becoming more interesting, and diverse are spot on.

    I also appreciate the reminder to take action on what we learn, not just consume it passively. This is a valuable post. Keep sharing your journey and knowledge with others!
