becoming a relentless learner

The most successful people on this planet are relentless learners. They believe in the value of self-education and all the benefits it brings. They see learning as a continual journey, not a destination that is to be reached. 

As Ramit Sethi writes, “The very best people invest in themselves when they have no resources and when they have myriad resources. They’re relentless at getting access to opportunities, whether it means volunteering at conferences or reading every single piece of free material out there.”

He further adds, “Those are the people who become so successful they can spend tens of thousands of dollars investing in themselves, continuing exactly what they’ve already been doing for years. That’s abundance.”

A key insight that Darren Hardy once shared in his DarrenDaily mentoring session is: Training is always worth the price.

The superachievers and top performers amongst us know the importance of investing in themselves regardless of the outcomes. They are curious and enjoy the process of learning, not worrying about what they’re going to get out of it. They are confident that sooner or later they’ll figure out a way to apply that particular skill or knowledge in their life, or use it to build connections that’ll help them learn new insights and create breakthroughs.

On top of that, the winners know that it’s not always about the money that you invest in gathering resources and learning. It’s also about the time and attention — your most important resources — that you invest in them, especially in the current era where we are bombarded with information and distractions. 

Whatever stage of life you’re in right now, focus on self-education every single day, even if it’s just for ten minutes. You are your best asset, and investing in yourself and becoming a relentless learner is one of the best and smartest decisions you’ll ever make in your life.
