Most everyone desires the capacity to learn faster and the ability to act in accordance with the learning they have acquired. And it’s consistently seen that, in this respect, the highly successful are advocates of this type of continuous growth. It’s said that in today’s day and age those who learn fastest will lead the market. But it’s more than that, because effective learning also has the capacity to shift the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Effective learning has the ability to influence not only the decisions we make relating to our roles and careers but every interaction we have in every relationship and opportunity that surrounds us. So what separates those who struggle with learning and those who seemingly have the ability to learn faster, retain information and build on their awareness?
It’s simpler than most would think and in this entry Britta Kallevang shares how people who learn faster have these 2 characteristics.
There are many types of intelligence, from emotional to bodily-kinesthetic, linguistics, and beyond. There are also just as many learning techniques. Anyone who turns to the internet for tips on tricks on how to learn faster will find a staggering number of views on the subject.

Most everyone wishes there lives were more resourceful, more successful, full of more cheer, etc. Few and far between are those who actually put the effort in to make it a reality.
But wait, what if we’re going about it the wrong way and our approach has been keeping us from where we want to be? What if all it took were some incremental changes to make habits stick? What if the information available could accelerate the pace at which we began experiencing success? Check out the following article, it’s an interesting read.
We all want to get to the gym, be more productive, be kinder to our loved ones… and then we don’t do it. Why? Well, building solid personal habits can be hard. In fact, research shows it takes an average of 66 days to build a new good habit.

Just for a moment, imagine that the world was responding to the cues we we’re giving it. Imagine that the very experiences we we’re having were of our own design and that the outcomes were dependent solely on our input. And if this was the case, how would the present experience change?
Now, before we get to esoteric, here’s the thing, all that exists was first conceived in thought. Understanding this principle provides us with the realisation that thought is the creative force within each of us. And if we are wise, and have developed self mastery, we can choose to consistently direct our thoughts inline with our chosen objectives to experience greater levels of personal success.
It all begins with thought.
When did you first notice that little voice in your head? We all have one, but why is it there? What is it? Perhaps most importantly, are you in control of it, or is it in control of you? Naturally, we all feel like we have control over our bodies.

We all have a spark within that flickers in the still of the night. When we are quietly alone, it calls to us, from time to time whispering to us that there is more. Yet despite this we fail to take action. And as time goes by we wonder why we are immobilised, kept from progressing, kept from beginning the journey, kept from making the decision to step outside the comfort zone.
So what’s the antidote? Well it may be a surprise to some but it’s actually quite simple. The answer is to consistently take imperfect action in the direction of our dream. Perfectionism is a strategy that keeps far to many people from even attempting to progress. That’s why abandoning that fallacy is so important if we are to break free and reignite the spark within.
“Follow the excitement. The rest takes care of itself.” – Unknown There’s one habit I’ve noticed has lead to more possibility for me than any other. It has connected the dots in ways I could have never imagined, and it seems to be a practice that people making an impact on the world has in common…

We’re all going to face challenges along the way. We’re all going to be confronted with setbacks as we venture forth in the pursuit of our goals and desired outcomes. None of us are immune to the hurdles, we must move beyond them in order to learn what it takes to become the kind of person who can hold their ground in times of uncertainty. And because that’s the case we owe it to ourselves to develop the skills that will assist us to consistently go from strength to strength.
And we needn’t wait for hardship for us to begin building those skills. We can learn from those who have come before us, who have conquered the unknown and willingly share their experiences. Just as athletes train in the preseason, so to should we be consistently training our hearts and minds to navigate that which we are yet to confront and is still to come.
“No matter how much falls on us, we keep plowing ahead. That’s the only way to keep the roads clear” ~Greg Kincaid How is it that some people can breeze through physical and emotional pain, whereas others wince at the mere thought of it? Is it their genes? Their individual circumstances?

In this day and age, with so many competing priorities, time is a luxury most of us wish we had more of. Unfortunately we can’t wind back the clock and once the moment is gone, it’s gone. And when it comes to achieving goals, the lack of time ranks right up there for reasons people give for why they don’t. So is it possible to accomplish more with the same amount of time?
The answer is both yes and no. No in the sense that we might not be able to accomplish more physically. Yes in the sense that we can accomplish far more beneficial outcomes when we use our time well. That’s why understanding certain principles can be a real game changer for most.
One such principle is the 80/20 rule also known as the Pareto Principle. Brian Tracy recently wrote a blog entry outlining its benefits. It’s worth taking the time to read. Trust it adds value to your day.
The 80/20 rule is one of the most helpful concepts for life and time management. According to this principle: 20 percent of your activities will account for 80 percent of your results. It can change the way you set goals forever.
