Most adult men (and women) feel as though they know all there is to know about life and simply stop learning. This is completely the wrong mindset to have and will only be your downfall the older you get.
The mindset you should is this…
I am open and willing to give anything a try if it can help me further my career, personal happiness and the wellbeing of others.
Here are 5 things you can do that will make you a better person.
Oh and when I say “better” I don’t mean having an edge over someone, I mean being a well rounded person who is confident, capable and intelligent. The more you work on your self, the better your life will be.
1. Go to an improv class
Improv is one of the best things you can do to open your mind up for conversing with others. The better your improv skills are, the deeper conversations you will have, meaning you will be able to build trust quicker, make friends quicker and have meaningful and fun interactions.
2. Learn something to do with computers
Computers are never going to stop evolving, thus more and more jobs will become available in the future that require software engineers, programmers and designers to be at the helm of a company or in the trenches. Pick something that is in demand and learn it, you won’t regret it.
3. Express your creative side
Creativity is key for enriching the mind and feeling a sense of freedom. This can be anything from learning how to paint, design a website or doing yoga in the park. Exercising the right side of your mind has shown to alleviate stress and give you a sense of fulfilment.
4. Learn another language
Learning another language gives you the chance to open up a whole new world of opportunities. From meeting new people to, learning a new culture and more. Language learning is not only fun, it’s a great way to exercise the brain and create new neural pathways.
5. Give back
Giving back will make you feel as though you’re actually contributing to the planet, instead of just taking all the time. Do some volunteer work in an animal shelter, make donations to the homeless, go to Thailand and save enslaved elephants, become a vegan… anything you can think of to actually give back.
