LIFE'S PUSH IS A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY.



Life pushes all of us around. Some people give up and others fight.

In his book,"Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Robert Kiyosaki wrote that,"Most of the time, life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying,"Wake up. There's something I want you to learn. If you learn life's lessons, you will do well. If not, life will just continue to push you around.

Learning from the Push

Some people just let life push them around and they open up to learn new things. It might be losing a job, heart break from a relationship or a lost opportunity. These things may look like misfortunes but they also carry fortunes within them. Change is inevitable and things are changing rapidly.

We need to develop a mindset of flexibility and growth. We need to look at what we can learn from every situation we find ourselves in. The quicker we learn the quicker we can move. The more time we dwell on thinking of our loss, the more we get pushed by life.

Getting angry and Pushing back

Some people get angry and push back. They push back the wrong things and people, not realizing that its life that is trying to teach them something. They might fight hard to regain their lost job, or former partner or even start to beg for lost opportunities.

We can fight as hard as we want but when its time for progress, there is nothing else we can do but accept the outcome and move on. Humans are created for growth and if we are not growing we are dying. Real learning takes energy, passion and a burning desire.

We can use an analogy of a flowing river. A river that flows will always have fresh water, but a swamp which harbors its water will be filthy and a breeding place for insects and diseases. In the same way,  a mind that is always growing will be fresh with ideas and plans for progress.

We Need to Learn as Much as We Can.

When life pushes us around a few learn the lessons and move on. They welcome the experience but most quit and a few like to fight. What we need to understand is that life is trying to awaken our minds and help us learn so that we can do better. 

Change is happening everywhere and we need to be flexible and keep our options open. Each day is a learning opportunity, every outcome is also a learning opportunity. We cannot stop learning.

Jim Rohn taught that a tree will grow as tall as it can and stretch its shoots as far as it can. Human beings are better than trees. We too need to grow and stretch as much as we can.
