Life at some point will always throw you a curveball. You think you have it all figured out and then BAM! There is a new lesson to be learned. Even though I am still “young” I think that without a doubt education is the most important thing an individual can seek and accumulate. I’m not necessarily referring to going to college and getting a degree(s), but I’m referring more along the lines of eduction in having experiences, learning from mentors, having the test first and the lesson afterwards. We spend such little time developing and creating ourselves anymore that who knows what our society and world is being robbed of. Life sucks sometimes, but those are the moments we should all pray for. Because that os when we grow, develop and mature the most. It takes years of sacrifice, dedication and patience to master something and become the expert at something. Once you have it down, that’s when life says you like that? Let me teach you this. It’s such a journey for those of us who have been enlightened to the real meaning about life. It’s not just about getting from point A to point B, it’s about the learning process and journey in between point A to point B. We worry so much about the future and the end, that we forget about the present. We forget about the moment we are in right here, right now. Daily we overlook the “journey” from point A to point B. It doesn’t matter what obstacle or terrible situation you are going through, we all have terrible days, what matters is your outlook and the lesson you learn. It’s all about learning and having experiences. The more you learn, the more you can grow, and that’s what it is all about. It’s about growing into maturity, it’s about growing into wealth, it’s about growing into leadership, it’s about growing into love, everything about us is about learning and growing in to it. As adults, just because we have physically stopped growing and reached a career “high point” doesn’t mean we should stop growing. That’s what this life journey is all about. It’s about growing all the way up until your last day and last breath. It doesn’t matter how old, how young, how ignorant, how intellectual, how poor or how wealthy you are. Life is about rolling with the punches and continually LEARNING. The biggest impacts and advantages I have had in my life is being able to stop, listen and learn from other people. OPM stands for “Other People’s Money” and if you can learn how to leverage that principle you can become wealthy, however, OPE stands for “Other People’s Education” and that is even more powerful and valuable than OPM. Because through it you can become wise. At some point the experiences and challenges we go through, someone else out there has already experienced it. Which means you can be coached, directed and encouraged towards the direction of successful results. I have so many people in my life that I will never be able to repay for the knowledge, wisdom and insight they have blessed me with. Always always always continue to learn and grow. Always listen. And no matter what, no matter how tough life gets never ever give up on the journey, education and experiences of life. Peace be unto you, blessings abound and may you live a full, happy, successful and most importantly an educated life that is full of learning. Thank you for taking the time to read this. #Jmeek #winning #success #life
