I know it’s not the best for our children’s health nor is it the highest quality for our own, but, I think we should all be aware of the self-sabotage that is the biggest loser secret that our generation has to face. With our increased dependence on technology, we have to be constantly on the lookout for new distractions (video games, social networking, etc.), and these distractions take over our life.
The biggest loser secret is that despite all our technological advancements, we are still not as smart as we think we are. Despite our advanced education, our ability to get jobs, and our ability to make ourselves more intelligent, all of these are just a fraction of the skills we have been taught. What we forget, most of the time, is that we have never really learned anything at all.
That’s why it’s so important to teach yourself. Learning from your mistakes, reading for understanding, and remembering are all ways to make yourself smarter. Unfortunately, for most of us, even the most basic learning skills take decades to develop. Learning and practicing are not simple skills to learn in a day, especially when we are dealing with the complexity of modern life.
Learning and practicing take more time and effort than most of the other skills that we learn. They also take a great deal of emotional energy. But they can be learned and practiced, and the key is to figure out why you want to learn this skill. It doesn’t matter how important a skill it is. What matters is that you WANT to learn it. Otherwise, you’ll never develop a skill that is worth it.
The most successful people I know who have been learning a skill of any sort for any length of time have learned to pay attention to how they feel. Their feelings are what drive their actions and what motivates them. In other words, they learn to pay attention to how they feel. It’s a different way of learning than just reading about it, or talking about it, or watching others do it.
As a former actor I know that when I read about the skills that are useful in doing something, I may be a little bit surprised. I’ve always been a bit skeptical (I think it’s a bit odd that I don’t think I can actually do any of the things that I do, like getting a job or doing that movie or whatever). I’ve always been a little bit more open about the concept (if not more so) of learning something.
It can be done, but it is a bit of a cliche. You can learn a lot more from someone who is willing to open up and talk about their skills, their talents, and why they can do things that are impossible for them.
You can certainly learn a lot from someone who wants to open up about what they’ve done and why they can do things like that. But you can’t learn a lot without being willing to talk about yourself. And for me I think that’s just a little bit more difficult to do than just reading about it online or watching the interviews. But I also think that to really “learn” from someone you need to be able to understand their perspective and experience.
I’m sure we will all need to read more about Colt Vahn’s story. But I think it’s good to know that you can learn a lot from someone who wants to open up about what theyve done and why they can do things like that. I think it’s easier to do that than just get out the old-school written interviews, so I’m sure we will all need to read more about Colt Vahn’s story.
