Learning for Life

“You must see every setback, failure, or hardship as a trial along the way, as seeds that are being planted for further cultivation, if you know how to grow them.  No moment is wasted if you pay attention and learn the lessons contained in every experience.  By constantly applying yourself to the subject that suits your inclinations and attacking it from many different angles, you are simply enriching the ground for these seeds to take root.  You may not see this process in the present, but it is happening.  Never losing your connection to your Life’s Task, you will unconsciously hit upon the right choices in your life.  Over time, mastery will come to you.” ~ Robert Greene, Mastery

  1.  Bill Bradley—How He Went From Slow and Gawky to the New York Knicks

 

“People who do not practice and learn new skills never gain a proper sense of proportion or self-criticism.  They think they can achieve anything without effort and have little contact with reality.  Trying something over and over again grounds you in reality, making you deeply aware of your inadequacies and of what you can accomplish with more work and effort.” ~ Robert Greene, Mastery

“In moving toward mastery, you are bringing your mind closer to reality and to life itself.  Anything that is alive is in a continual state of change and movement.  The moment that you rest, thinking that you have attained the level you desire, a part of your mind enters a phase of decay.  You lose your hard-earned creativity and others begin to sense it.  This is a power and intelligence that must be continually renewed or it will die.” ~ Robert Greene, Mastery

“Growth is an endlessly iterative process.  When we learn something new, we don’t go from ‘wrong’ to ‘right.’  Rather, we go from wrong to slightly less wrong.  And when we learn something additional, we go from slightly less wrong to slightly less wrong than that, and then to even less wrong than that, and so on.  We are always in the process of approaching truth and perfection without actually ever reaching truth or perfection.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“We all love to take responsibility for success and happiness.  Hell, we often fight over who gets to be responsible for success and happiness.  But taking responsibility for our problems is far more important, because that’s where the real learning comes from.  That’s where the real-life improvement comes from.  To simply blame others is only to hurt yourself.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“You don’t have to believe me, but think, and make choices.  Believe what you want to believe according to what I say, but only if it makes sense for you, if it makes you happy.  If it guides you into your awakening, then make the choice to believe it.  I am responsible for what I say, but I am not responsible for what you understand.  We live in a completely different dream.  What I say, even if it is absolutely true for me, is not necessarily true for you.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love
