Why I chose to start this blog……

One of the most important things we can do to improve our lives is to learn from the people, places, and things around us.  In order to do this you have to focus your attention on what’s going on around you.  It’s important to explore new things and idea’s to enrich our lives.  This is how we grow and develop.

This is how we live better today than yesterday.  We should be learning something new every single day.  This is how we keep from making the same mistakes over and over again.

We are what we feed our minds but to live a successful life, here are some of the things we should focus on:

  • Information on technology
  • Information about the field of work we are in
  • Information about things that interest us most
  • Learning how to live a better life
  • Information about how to find and live out your purpose
  • Learn how to best live out your challenges
  • How to carry out your desires

Life is not just about completing everything on our “to do”  list.  It is about living and learning.  It is about retaining the most important information and lessons then using the information to make today better than yesterday.

Want to make a difference in your life?

Don’t you agree?


Quote For The Day

“Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study.  Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.”
