High-performing people know that continued learning is essential--and employ unique approaches to get the maximum benefit from mastering a new concept or skill. Here are a few ways that successful people learn new things: Learn how you learn Maybe you are like Warren Buffett, who starts his morning by reading six newspapers. Perhaps you are a hands-on learner, or would rather listen to a podcast while working out. The important thing is to find out how you learn best, then start putting forth the effort. Consume challenging material Choose materials that introduce new concepts and challenge your old ideas. Make sure to have a pen and paper nearby--a study found that handwriting notes can give you a stronger grasp of the concepts than if you tapped away on a laptop. Go back to class Successful people enlist help from subject-matter experts to expand their knowledge. To maximize your own learning potential, sign up for a conference, take an online course, or finally pursue that advanced degree. Get uncomfortable If you want to strengthen your brain's connections, you need to challenge yourself with novel tasks. It may feel strange or even frustrating at times, but doing so can result in rich learning experiences. If you want to be more successful, embrace disciplines and topics that are outside the norm for you--and persevere even when mastery is a struggle....

Good timber does not grow with ease. The stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.   1. "Happiness is not something outside of me, but flows outward from me." 2. "I fully realize that my future is bright and powerful." 3. "I purposefully take on enormous risk and challenge, knowing this to be the only path to optimal growth." 4. "The economy is likely going to fall apart. And that doesn't really effect me." 5. "I have enough. External things can never bring me sustainable or lasting happiness." 6. "I don't care how I'm remembered. I care about what I do here and now to make the biggest impact in people's lives." 7. "I can never go back."  ...

Life.   It's a journey of twists and turns, peaks and valleys, mountains to climb and oceans to explore. Good times and bad times. Happy times and sad times. But always, life is a movement forward. No matter where you are on the journey, in some way, you are continuing on--and that's what makes it so magnificent. What nobody ever tells you, though, when you are a wide-eyed child, are all the little things that come along with "growing up." The things pull you down from your dreaming cloud and force you to plant your feet on the ground. Most people are scared of imagination. Your dream doesn't really matter to anyone else. Friends are relative to where you are in your life. Your potential increases with age. Spontaneity is the sister of creativity. You forget the value of "touch" later on. Most people don't do what they love. Many stop reading after college. People talk more than they listen. Creativity takes practice. "Success" is a relative term. You can't change your parents. The only person you have to face in the morning is yourself. Nothing feels as good as something you do from the heart. Your potential is directly correlated to how well you know yourself. Everyone who doubts you will always come back around. You are a reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Beliefs are relative to what you pursue. Anything can be a vice. Your purpose is to be YOU. What is the meaning of life? To be you, all of you, always, in everything you do--whatever that means to you. You are your own creator. You are your own evolving masterpiece. Growing up is the realization that you are both the sculpture and the sculptor, the painter and the portrait. Paint yourself however you wish....

Who are the people you absolutely need to keep in your life? These are the 5 kinds of people I always keep in my life.   The leader This is the person that always takes you to the edge of where you feel comfortable. They bring you to the brink of what you think you're capable of by simply pushing you to do more. They are unafraid to take charge, grab you by the hand, and go. You never feel less than perfectly capable. The storyteller This is the friend who colors your day with experiences from his or life. They inspire you to continue moving and trying for more adventure yourself. Although we all know that complacency is the way to boredom, the storyteller reminds of how much more there can always be. The listener A person who stays with you to hear you out when you need a sounding board for your emotions is incredibly important. This is the friend that makes us feel valued even when we are unsure whether or not our words matter. This isn't the person who will talk over you or just nod and text your through your conversation. It's the person who really hears you, not just the person who listens. The happy one There's always someone we have in our life who fills us with iridescent, inexplicable joy simply form his or her presence alone. It's something practically chemical--something we honestly can't explain. Some people just honestly bring happiness with them, no matter where they are or whom they are with. Find this positive energy and hold on tightly to it. The one who forces you to think Although it's never a pleasant process to reevaluate our own lives, it can be necessary to check-in from time to time. Self-reflection is necessary for any sort of improvement in our lives, no matter how trying it may feel in the moment. Sit down with the person who will ask you the right kind of questions to better who you are--and keep that person close....

3 Daily Habits of Remarkably Successful People Have you ever wondered what makes some people more successful than others? Do they, like Popeye, consume a can of spinach before fighting the day's battles? How many cups of coffee do they ingest a day? What exactly do successful people do that’s different from everyone else? Live a balanced life People who go far in life how to maintain a healthy balance of things. They spend time with their families, and pursue their passions, while also taking on a heavy workload. They make time for work as well as for play-without sacrificing time for themselves in between. Many times, when we take on responsibilities, we forgo something else in order to make time for our new commitment. Leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle, however, is undoubtedly the surest way to success. So, keep your friends, families, and small life joys in mind when increasing your workload. Otherwise, the success you may receive is not the kind that truly brings fulfillment. Look forward Successful people never look back excessively on their past mistakes. They learn from what they have done wrong before in order to create more efficient strides moving forward. If we get too caught up in our past, we end up stuck in a place of regret-a place that is very difficult to develop motivation in. Continually moving forward keeps us in the present, something that is a surefire way to better and brighter futures. Wake up early If you don't wake up early enoughwe begin each morning with a sense of lateness-something that can only contribute to a disorientation that continues throughout the day. The feeling of perpetually trying to catch up is one that is often a huge hindrance to effective future results. When we're not on top of what we're currently doing, how could we honestly do anything else we need to better? Improvement, as we know, is the unfailing key to success. Improvement, however, cannot be achieved if we don't know and maintain a stable sense of direction every single day. Wake up early, give yourself enough time to find your place in the world each morning, and have better days....
