Welcome to my blog.
This is the first page of your journey into my life.
Keep on Learning
I have never felt as alive as I do now.
No, it’s not just because I have survived 40 - its more to do with keeping my brain active by continually going on training courses.
I was so impressed with myself at gaining a Masters degree as a mature student. I realised that I could study, understand, and, learn things. It felt great!
I didnt want to give up the good feelings, so I enrolled on another course, which began later in the same year as my graduation ceremony.
Straight after that, I enrolled for the ‘Coach Practitioner, NLP’ - also with Frank. And, after that, I was tempted, and succumbed to that temptation, of ‘Master Practitioner, NLP’
Since then I have done 6 more courses, and I loved every one of them. I didn’t love every moment, however, that’s something else! There are some times, I find, during your learning journey, when tussling with a concept, or problem, that, well, quite frankly, your brain hurts. Not to mention when you want to watch ‘Dancing on Ice’ but your paper has to be completed by the next day.
Overall, though, I can honestly say that learning is a very enjoyable, worthwhile experience.
This Friday I start an ILM, NVQ level 3 course on ‘First Line Management’ and I am looking forward to the next few weeks and months. Who will I meet, I wonder? What will we read, discuss, learn? In what ways will I be challenged? How will my ways of looking at things be questioned? What will I discover? How will I be better than I was before? What doors will become open to me?
Being cognitively challenged and stretched stimulates the brain. And this stimulation has rippled through my entire life-energy, and made me more awake, energetic, vital, (and even vibrating) than I was before I got the learning bug.
I am so convinced on the benefits of lifelong learning that I decided to become a trainer myself.
Do consider a life of learning - If, for nothing else but to access great feelings. I recommend it!
