It was the summer of 2010. One of my favorite summers ever. I had just gotten the keys to my rental property. Instead of renting it out right away, I decided to live there with a buddy that would pay me rent. We decided to make it the best summer ever. We were both done with college, making money, and interested in having a blast while we worked hard as well.

One hot morning we were having breakfast. I had the biggest smile on my face for this particular breakfast. Why was I smiling? Let’s just say I didn’t make it home the night before. After telling my friends all about my night before, one friend turns to me and says that I’m lucky that I work out because it makes it easier to meet women when you work out. Another friend at the table looked at me and winked.

The truth is that my goal in 2010 was to learn how to improve my dating skills. This is something that many will say is a topic that you can’t read about. Well guess what? I read about it and learned plenty. My friend forced me to read some pick up material. I was hesitant at first, but then he agreed to read some of my material on blogging and lifestyle design. What I learned that summer increased my confidence as a public speaker, young entrepreneur, and young adult.

Where am I going with this? I’m not trying to make myself look like an idiot. I wanted to prove a point with my brief story…

You can learn anything in this world.

You don’t believe me? Go to Google and um, Google it! Look around. Type in something new. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by all of the answers that you find. Within minutes you can learn all that you need to know on a certain topic.

The truth is that you can learn anything that you want. All you have to do is look for the plethora of answers available on the Internet and all around you. You then have to filter the information out, avoid information overload, and slowly learn about that new topic that’s been on your mind for the longest time.

Now that you know this information, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to attempt to learn something new?

What are some ways that you can waste time learning?

  1. Look up random facts.
  2. Check out history that doesn’t matter.
  3. Read trivial information.
  4. See what your friends are doing on Facebook.

What are some productive ways to learn something?

  • Learn a new language.
  • Find a way to improve your health.
  • Find a fitness plan that works for you.
  • Pick up some new skills.
  • Find a new way to make money.
  • Look into improving your negotiating skills.
  • Search for bargains.

You can learn anything that you want. The only thing stopping you is you. I just wanted to remind you that you can take 20 minutes a day or a few hours this weekend to sit down and put your mind to that project that has been on your mind. I decided to read a little bit in Polish online every single day so that I don’t lose my ability to read in my second language. What are you going to learn?

You are right in that anyone can learn anything if they TRULY want to learn. I find that a lot of people are just too lazy to even bother. Google is a great source of information. Sometimes too much as you find yourself trying to figure out truth from fiction.
