While reading some inspirational reading material, I came across two quotes I'd like to share with you.
First from Robert Kiyosaki
"The only difference between a rich person and a poor person is how they use their time."
The second which goes right along with the first is from Mark Victor Hansen
"Read books, listen to audios, attend seminars - they are decades of wisdom reduced to invaluable hours."
These both caught my mind because this is something that I have noticed over the past couple of years. No matter what is going on in your life, you should constantly be learning new things. While some days offer more opportunities to learn than others, it's important to take advantage of them when they arise.
Last month while in Florida for a convention, a friend of mine made a choice of which I am not sure why. There was a convention about real estate with many reputable speakers presenting. It was a great wealth of information right at our finger tips. Even if someone wasn't really into real estate, they could still have learned a lot and been motivated in areas of their own lives.
There were success stories and motivation speakers. It was great! My friend however, chose to sit up in the hotel room and not join me for even one speaker! I think that she really wasted a valuable opportunity. Did she have to go all day? No, of course not, but would she have learned something if she would have had an open mind? Definitely!!!
Whatever opportunities arise for you, have an open mind. You can learn something new every day! Make the best of whatever situation you find yourself in.
And lastly I will leave you with this thought. How many minutes a day or a week do you spend in your car, walking, or at the gym? Instead of always listening to music, take time to listen to educational or motivational cds. They could change your life.
