Your Challenge Today:

Process of Learning …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

There is no end to education.

It is not that you read a book, pass an examination,

and finish with education. The whole of life,

from the moment you are born to the moment you die,

is a process of learning.

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

 


 

The process of learning is different for everyone. Some of us learn visually, some kinesthetically, and some are auditory learners. Our brains process information differently, we all have preferences when it comes to learning. And, when we learn, we change, we grow, we develop our perceptions, try new things and have fun!

 

Change is a process and the process of learning is a life long endeavor. We start small and learn new things everyday when we are little and as we grow the learning becomes more complex. We can learn from almost any experience ~ we can learn what we like and what we don’t like. Random experiences can teach us much about ourselves and our world. The act of keeping our eyes and ears open to what’s going on around us, being present in our lives can teach us much about ourselves and the world around us.

 

The most important thing I have to remind myself of is ~ change is a process ~ it takes time. Developing new habits takes time, learning new skills takes time, learning a new language takes time and practice. I have to practice to become proficient in my new skill, habit or hobby. I have to be consistent with my practice and patient with myself while I am practicing. Repetition, repetition,  repetition … practice, practice, practice … patience, patience, patience. And, I have to be gentle with myself while I am learning and practicing … I will not be an expert quickly, it will take time. The process of learning takes time, enjoy the journey.

 

No matter what’s on your SMART GOALS – rest assured that if it’s new to you, it will take time. Give yourself time to master your goals and give yourself time to practice. Practice patience, kindness and gentleness with yourself as you are learning. With a sincere desire to learn, practice, patience and ingenuity — you will prevail!
