Becoming a student of life

One of the habits that has served me well throughout my life is to keep the mindset of a student. I always had a insatiable curiosity about a wide variety of topics, and I'm usually reading several books during the same period of time. I read about some really fascinating as quantum physics, and some really cheesy, like romance novels. In fact, I enjoyed them all!

It occurred to me the other day that no matter what I'm learning, I am always constantly learning. I'm like a sponge that dries and withers if it does not absorb anything on a regular basis. My life becomes boring and stagnant, and I feel weak and uninspired.

If this describes your life right now, you can turn it around very easily. Adopt the attitude of a student and see how it inspires joy, excitement and motivation.

Being a student of life is not just to read books and learn as much as possible about various issues. That certainly can be part of it, but more on how to see the world around you and the way they handle their everyday experiences.

Here are five tips to help you become a student of life

1) Develop awareness. – Most of us spend our days rushing blindly an activity to another without realizing what surrounds us. If instead you can slow down a bit and just look around us, we would see much more in life. Take time to realize what a beautiful sunset on the drive home. Step outside during the day and feel the sun on your face, and enjoy some deep breaths, debugging. Be aware of his own spiritual being, and their connection to all living beings. Give the gift of being fair, watching, and breathing.

2) Keep an open mind. – Instead assume that you know everything about something and the approach each situation with an attitude of curiosity. Question everything. Explore new ideas, thoughts and issues that have always wanted learn. This goes for the people around you. Not supposed to know what they are all based on his appearance or a preconceived idea. Ask questions, get to know them better. Be willing to release any trial that may have, and instead seek the truth.

3) keep an open heart. – Express their profound gratitude for his life, and all experiences you have – even the not so pleasant. Be willing to be vulnerable in their connections with others, and allow yourself to feel. Too often we are afraid of our emotions and try to numb themselves or escape from them. Instead, let your emotions be your teachers. Listen to them, and honor. They will teach you a lot about yourself.

4) Find the lesson. – In each experience, ask yourself: "What I can learn from this?" Sometimes the lesson is obvious, and sometimes have to look. With each lesson, allow it to become a part of you and make you a better, stronger, happier. Although we all make mistakes and stumble, the goal is to new mistakes instead of repeating them over and over again. As we progress, we are doing great! Use your own conscience to overcome challenges and move forward.

5) Enjoy the journey. – Most of us take life so seriously! Yes, it has its serious moments. But overall this is supposed to be a pleasant experience, and we do it that way, simply by choosing. Do not worry either if you are making as much progress as it should, and not get frustrated when things do not always go as planned. Instead take a more light and understand that everything is just a journey and the point is to relax and enjoy.

Imagine that you are a bright white sponge, and you through these pools of brightly colored liquid. There is a red pool of passion, a pink pool of love, a yellow pool of knowledge, green pool of gratitude, and a purple pool of fun. Go ahead and dip your toe sponge in each of these pools, and start your color to change. Instead of plain white sponge, a sponge that is now beautiful, multicolored, full of passion, love, knowledge, gratitude, and fun.

Unfortunately, there are a few pool of black, salty things as negative self-talk, fear, regrets, etc. If you accidentally absorb some this and starts to smear the colors, do not worry too much. Just focus on reviewing the pools beautiful, colorful and absorbing more good things. Negative dilute things, and finally get rid of it all together. 🙂
