You ever walk into a classroom, a meeting, a conference, or a professional development opportunity with the attitude “I don’t see why I have to know this?!?”
Lemme tell you something. That’s on you. There are opportunities to learn everywhere, every day. If you approach every situation with the question, “What can I learn here?”, you’ll be amazed at what an interesting world we live in.
Don’t shut yourself off from new knowledge and information. When you do, everything new becomes a threat. If you’re open to things, almost everything is just freaking fascinating.
Say these two things out loud, and pay attention to the way each makes you feel:
“Why do I have to know this?!?”
“What is here for me to learn?”
See what I mean? It’s easy to become cynical and jaded in this world but remember…you’re not required to be. You can be a learner, and you can be a learner everywhere, every day.
