For students school has now begun for a new year. Those of us who are not students any longer are not impacted by the school year. We are not required to attend classes and do homework. Though we may no longer be students we must always be learners.

Are you open to learning throughout your life? If you are ever going to reach your God given potential, if you are ever going to have the happiness, success and fulfillment you seek, it will be because you kept learning and growing your entire life. You should examine yourself to see if you are growing, developing, and expanding in knowledge. Just because you graduated, got a diploma or a degree does not mean you are done learning. Coach John Wooden famously said for many years, "When you are through with learning, you are through." You must commit to being a lifelong learner.

You can learn from experience. Experience is a great teacher if you learn from it. Past experiences can help us to see and understand patterns in our lives that may be counterproductive. Learners don't repeat the same mistakes over and over again. You can learn from reading. What is the last book you read? You can never separate reading and a lifelong learner. What is the last class or study you attended? What is the last seminar you went to?

High Impact Living is devoted to helping you learn and grow in your life. We will do whatever we can to help you become the person God created you to be. But you must commit yourself to learning so that God can work in and through you.
