STAYING MOTIVATED 3

CONTINUOUS LEARNING
Learning promotes growth.  It is healthy for the brain and you are never too old to learn something new.  Everyday you should try to learn something new.  The best ways to do this is through reading and listening.

If you are often not motivated to begin new projects or to take on new things you should increase your learning.  You don’t have to be an avid reader and take on novels but you should read.  Reading is good for the brain and it is stimulating for the mind.  Continuously learning new things will help you become open to take on things you didn’t think you could do before.

A morning newspaper is a common way some people like to stimulate their brain.  They might like to cuddle up with the paper and their coffee before they begin their long day or even read the newspaper every night before you go to bed.  This is an excellent habit to get into.

Reading the newspaper can be difficult for some people.  You might not like the newspaper because of the ink or you believe in recycling and you are against the abundance of newspapers being printed.  You don’t have to read the newspaper.  You can read the news online everyday at your computer.  You don’t have to be on a news site but you can read anything that interests you.  Maybe you would like to learn a new skill.  You can go to a site that focuses on this skill and read a little bit every day.

Reading is not the only thing you can do to continuously be learning.  If you don’t have time to read or if you don’t like to read there are other ways you can learn.  Many people who have long commutes often listen to audio CD’s.  Some people learn a different language or listen to a novel.  There are many different things you can listen to any time of day.


Listening can also extend to your television while you are getting ready for work.  You might choose to turn on the news and listen to the news every morning.  You can listen to a cooking channel or public radio.  You don’t have to read if you are not a big reader.

Listening to your friends, family and other people is another important aspect you need to focus on to remain motivated.  When you listen to others they will want to be around you because they will know what they say means something to you and you will learn.  You will feel good about yourself as you respect others which will build motivation.

Continuous learning is extremely important to motivation.  Every day you should maintain a routine of learning something.  You might want to read the newspaper on a daily basis, listen to tapes or the radio, or even just listen to people.
