Evolving Your Thinking = Growth!
De-schooling yourself every so often is a necessity if we are to not only grow but also find success in life.
“It is among the common-places of education that we often first cut off the living root and then try to replace its natural functions by artificial means. Thus we suppress the child’s curiosity and then when he lacks a natural interest in learning he is offered special coaching for his scholastic difficulties.” –Alice Duer
This is one of my favourite quotes because i’m constantly reminded to question where my thoughts and actions stem from. Did you know that in the U.K alone an individual spends roughly eight thousand, two hundred and fifty-five hours (8,255 hours) in school, from foundation to year 12.
I believe this amount of hours leave quite the impression on our habits, thoughts, goals, relationships, and worldly views. We have all been influenced by our education. Most of us have been schooled into a way of life, but have you de-schooled yet?
Have you ever asked yourself why you see the world the way you do and how that factor into your success?
Life is an ever evolving journey. When we stop questioning and being curious, it means we have come to the end of the line, a dead end. Many of us have hit that wall before because of the way we were conditioned form a young age.
I have a little girl and she is the most curious person ever. She asks questions for a thousand people and sometimes i get tired. However, the one thing i never do is stop her curious mind. When I am tired, I still allow her to push onward, so she never limits her mental capacity and lose all motivation.
I want her to know that it is part of growing intellectually and that is perfectly fine.
Curiosity should be the driving force of your life. It is a gas that fuels work ethic which in turn fuels the fire to your success.
Never stop thinking and never stop asking.
Remember, a curious mind inquires to know.
