Knowledge of living a better life comes from practical life instead of books and schools. In day-to-day life, we go through many experiences, meet different people from different backgrounds and acquaintances. Learning from people around you is increasingly valuable.
Smart people around the world learn not only from books but from reason, experience. Commonly, most illiterate people are billionaires and literates are doing their job. This is just because they have learned from their daily encounters.
Amateurs learn from everyone and everything but overlook these simple things.
Broadening your canvas of thinking
To live a successful life, you should not stop learning from others. You should broader the canvas of your thinking and never think that you know everything. The human brain and education are specific and there is always a need for learning (Not courses obviously but people).
If you want to learn something, you should be open to criticism. Successful people always positively take criticism and improve themselves on daily basis. One who is not open to criticism never learns how to improve their work. If you are willing to “accept and consider others views with broadmindedness” you will be successful at the end
Do not close yourself from new opportunities
Smart people open themselves to new opportunities and software. They always try to improve their perception of the world. They are always interested to upgrade their existing knowledge. They understand that intelligence remains always in process. They keep on challenging their existing wisdom. 80% of the unsuccessful people are those who live under their strong bias, beliefs, values, and curiosities. Unsuccessful people see life with only fitted patterns of existing knowledge.
Ask, Ask and Ask
Intelligent people, keep on asking when it comes to new trends or innovations in the market. They tolerate their mistakes and move to learn more.
Analyze every movement positively. If you are passing through some critical circumstances, start learning from the situation. If something bad happens to you, it means something good is waiting ahead: all you need is to keep on working.
