Do You Consider Yourself A Learner?

16 replies
This subject is directed specifically at the procrastination community. But whether you are a procrastinator or not, if you truly consider yourself a 'learner' of new things in this procession of life, then being productive is also your natural right.

I have seen that like everything else in life, IM is a giant puzzle that can be pieced together no matter the player's choice of selling strategy.

The authentic 'learner of the new' could easily apply his thirst for learning by compartmentalizing what is learned in such a way as to sort of "follow the dots" until a desired specific end result is achieved: a successful online business of some sort for instance: piece by piece, action by action, recognition and self-encouragement all along the way.

Now, apply that model to any strategy of IM selling and have at it. All you have to do, no matter how small or stress free the task seems to be for the day, it remains a task completed and the expansion of learning has been achieved for the moment. This is mentally and physically stackable. Simply rinse and repeat your thirst for learning by applying it in the linear way that secures you the end result of dollars flowing into your accounts and paychecks stacking up in the mail.

And don't get freaked out about your "lack of progress" as long as you are making some progress you are golden. The mind wants to talk you out of your daily, incremental increases in knowledge and action.

Whereas time is going to pass by no matter what you do or don't do, so choose some small action every day. Ultimately it will be like having put money in the bank all along the way. Once you are on to the mind's tricks you can ignore its promptings and get on with what you want to learn today!

    The more you learn, the more you realise how much there is still to learn. Only a fool would claim to not be a learner.

      Even 11 years after starting online, I am still learning new things all the time.

      The sad part about some people in that they don't want to learn from someone who is already successful and think they know it all.

    Definitely a learner. As someone said:

    “Knowledge is knowing that you know nothing.”

    There's so much to learn (professionally, personally, etc.) and it's a shame because many people stop learning because they think they've figured everything out.

    Learner, absolutely! Otherwise, I wouldn't be a true Warrior scrolling through threads to see what's new in the IM.
