Learning /ˈləːnɪŋ/, [noun] – the acquisition of knowledge or skills through study, experience, or being taught. Oxford dictionary
They say that you learn while you live. That saying couldn’t be more accurate. From year one, you absorb every little detail, every sound, every image, and you combine it into a story. The whole world becomes your playground. Every breath you take comes with a thought; a thought that glorifies your existence. Through years all that you’ve learnt becomes the meaning of your life and it all starts with the first light you see when you open your eyes and with the first word you hear or read. A book becomes your companion.
“You live and learn. At any rate, you live.”
― Douglas Adams
Learning can be formal and informal. Formal learning is acquired through formal education in schools and is taught to you by your teachers and your professors. You gain knowledge that is written in the books and is considered as a foundation you build your life on. Informal learning is consisted of what you learn by observing your environment, people around you and from you own experience. Dividing the process of learning into those two categories means you never truly stop learning.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Your acquisition of knowledge never ends. You keep progressing! You keep running towards new experiences! You seek new information every day and you feel more powerful when you know that the world lies in the palm of your hand. New realizations and information are only a book away, only a conversation away.
The question is: “What will you do with it?”
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
You are supposed to take everything you’ve learned and put it to work. Engage yourself in new experiences, new people and new places. Grab hold onto every information, small or big. Take every opportunity you get and invest in yourself because that’s the only thing that holds permanent value. You are a being that grows, evolves and becomes even greater! So, LEAP into today and LEAP into the future because what you learn becomes you.
We expect great things from you and we know that with everything you already have and will learn, you can move the world!
