Less Is More

August 10, 2017

Most of us are being bombarded with way too much information. I get about 200 e-mails a day. I make at least 10 phone calls a day and receive 10 or more daily. Then there is the information coming to me from many other sources as well. I avoid watching the news, however I do read articles in the NY Times and other sources that interest me.  I am always studying and learning something new ever day.Taking a webinar or going to a class. My mind can go into overload if I do not sift through what’s relevant and valuable to me.

Information is useless until all that data is processed down, and made simple. Until I can take it and apply it as knowledge and then reduces to further into wisdom, it has no relevance in my life.

Knowledge is the the accumulation of facts and date that you have learned about or experienced.

Wisdom is the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.

Knowledge is gained through learning facts.

Wisdom comes from observing experiences and learning from them in a way that affects future decisions and behaviors.

Knowledge is measuring that a desert path is 3.6 miles long.

Wisdom is bringing enough water for the duration of that hike.

Knowledge allows for change in response to new information or analyzes.

Wisdom is time less.

Wisdom is “Who we are” vs. “What we do.”

Wisdom governs choices, is the pursuit of knowledge, better communication and relationships.

I believe for the human race to survive and thrive we must surpass the information age and learn to be wise, which has no age, it is time less.

Here is a short video to help your quest for wisdom.

If you are looking for help sifting through all the overload of  information in your head and gaining clearly, I’m a phone call away.


Learn To Earn

3 Tips to Learning

1. Know why you are learning.

Your brain always needs a motive to learn something before it will actually do it. Learning actually has so many possible benefits that everyone should make it a top priority. You can learn how to be successful, you can learn from the mistakes of others, you can learn new useful skills, and you can learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. Don’t just take my word for it, many great men and women throughout history endorsed learning.

Albert Einstein said “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”

Henry Ford said “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”

Earl Nightingale said “The minute a man stops learning, our world will begin to pass him by. He will be left a lonely and disconsolate figure in its wake.”

Abraham Lincoln said “All I have learned, I learned from books.”

John Adams said “I read my eyes out and can’t read half enough…the more one reads the more one sees we have to read”.                                                                                                                                         Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Winston Churchill, Bruce Lee, Mahatma Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci, Confucius, Socrates, and more.  All of these people had something positive to say about learning. Learning is how you move up in life, and expand your awareness to new ideas.

  1. Form a habit of learning.

This is crucial. True life-long learners know they have a lot to learn, and that the more time spent learning the better. They cut down on distractions like television, radio, video games, and social media to free up more time for learning. They listen to audio books during commute. They read everyday. You don’t have to go to the extreme with this.

However imagine if you just made a habit of spending an hour a day reading. Over the course of a year that would add up to 365 hours spent reading! Don’t fall into the pessimistic trap of thinking you have to give up your life or spend hours every day reading for it to have any effect. Just make small changes, slightly adjust your habits in favor of learning, and watch how your life will start to change with all the new knowledge being poured into your brain.

As Mahatma Gandhi put it “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

3. Surround yourself with like minded people who support you.

Meet up with people who are experts in your topic of study. Go to classes, seminars, courses, live events, and network with the people there. Keep friends around who understand and see the benefit of life-long learning. Tell your friends and family what you plan to learn and get them to run accountability checks on you.

Life-long learners learn from a multitude of sources, especially when they really want to master a subject. Books, audio books, courses, seminars, other people, and mentors. These are all fair game for self-education and a life-long learner. Expect success and be confident that you will learn whatever it is you are trying to learn as this will make it easier for you to learn it! All of this will motivate you to stay focused on your goals and learn. Learning truly is a lifestyle.

Learning should be fun! If you want to explore how I can teach you to be a better learner to be a better earner, let’s talk. Always a free consultation.

Take the Jump

May 17, 2016

jumpThis past weekend I was at a two day seminar were we fully engaged in learning, growing and expanding our minds. It was amazing!!! There is always more to know if you jump in the game of life and give it your all. You just never know where you can go if you jump and trust that your parachute will open.  I’ve always been one to go for things and take a risk if I really wanted something, and I did it again this weekend.  How about you? Do you believe in yourself enough to invest in yourself, or are you playing it safe? You must let go of the familiar to allow for new things in your life to come in. It will never happen if you do not jump and experience the free fall of the unknown. It’s like playing in the minor leagues and now stepping up, and playing in the major league. I took a huge leap of faith and trust that I will strike a home run . Life is all about expression and expansion, and I want to always go to a higher level. What is it that is holding you back from jumping into life? If you want more, than you have to give more! Just jump and the world will give you more!!!

Need help with taking a risk? Call Monica today and find your faith and courage to take the jump!!! Invest in yourself!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


From Every Failure is the Seed to Success

December 2, 2014

I have had many failures in my life. Some were harder to endure than others. However, I always got up and tried again. For every failure holds the seed to success. The oak tree sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dream, imagine, and take action every day toward your vision. The idea is planted in your mind for a reason. It must be cultivated, before you harvest the reward. Every failure brings you one step closer to success. So never give up on your worthy idea. Fail forward. A baby learns to walk by falling down many times. A young child learns to ride a bicycle by getting back up on it. So don’t stop now, keep on learning, growing, giving your best, and before you know it you will have cracked open the seed to success.
