Keep this in mind when it comes to the lessons that life want to teach you.

Every day is a new day filled with lessons for us to learn. Whether we want the lesson or not, life is going to teach us the lesson.

Let’s get into some questions and answers!

What is learning?

Merriam-Webster defines learning as:

  • The activity or process of gaining knowledge or skill by studying, practicing, being taught, or experiencing something : the activity of someone who learns.

  • Knowledge or skill gained from learning.

As you can see, learning has a lot for you to gain as long as you are willing to do what it takes to gain the knowledge.


What goes wrong with not learning?

This can vary from person to person depending on the situation. Here are few things that goes wrong with not learning.

  • Lesson too long or complex. The information may be too much for a person to comprehend and process.
  • Lesson too short. The information may not be enough for a person to fully understand.
  • Person may know it already. A person may already know the information from a previous lesson.
  • Person has no interest in learning. A person simply does not care to learn anything that is not interesting or not important to his or her life.
  • Person does not feel certain people or things can teach him or her something. A person may have already determined in their mind that someone or something can teach them something based on their own determination or observations.

Whatever the reason may be, the danger of not learning is that people miss out valuable lessons that can change their life for the better.

What can life teach you?

Life can teach you a variety of things as long as you are open to being taught. The lessons you can learn can be good and bad in nature. They can heal you and they can hurt you. They can take you up to new highs and bring you down to new lows. Whatever life teaches you, it is for your own good because without it, you do not become the person you are today.

Here is a statement from Joe Carlozo that I personally use, and I will explain below.


I personally live by this because I feel that every day, I am learning something new from my family, co-workers, strangers, life in general, and you. With every new lesson, I try to apply it in my life and use it overcome and better with each day. Whenever I learn something new, I always give thanks back to whomever taught me the lesson because without the lesson, I cannot grow and evolve into the person I am today.

I encourage you to take the time to let life teach you something new. No matter who or where you learn your lesson from, be open to the teaching. You truly never know who or what may hold the lesson you need to become the best that you can be. Let’s remember that life is always teaching you something new, but the ones who ace life’s lessons are the ones who study and apply the lessons to become successful.


I want to ask you a few questions and I want you to give them some thought. Feel free to answer and comment below.

  • What was the most important lesson you learned in your life?
  • Who or what taught you that lesson?
  • Did that lesson come unexpectedly or were you looking for the lesson?
  • How did that life lesson affect you?

Your answers and comments can help yourself or someone else attempt to look at today and answer the main question:

  • What are you learning today from life’s classroom?
