Ceasing learning means ceasing living the life
Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher, teacher and political guru, once had said, “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher, teacher and political guru, once had said, "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." There is no gainsaying the fact that life is essentially a bundle of mistakes which, in turn, teach us a lot. No mistake obviously means no learning. The continua of mistakes and timeless lessons of life are eternal, they are ubiquitous. Human beings keep learning ceaselessly till their last breath. However, a question arises here: "Why do we tend to learn?" Follows yet another question: How do we get inspired to learn something in our life?
In fact, the insight to learn anything springs from our burning desire to realize the dreams of our life, emanates from our ambition to reach out to the pinnacle of historical achievements the renowned people from across the world have succeeded to attain. Thomas Alva Edison learnt from nearly one thousand failures he had to concede in the effort of inventing an electric bulb. At last, his efforts bore the fruit. The world would not have been brightly lit today if he had succumbed to the early failures befalling during the process of inventing the bulb. So miracle of learning lies hidden in making mistakes, accepting failures. What it implies is the fact that as many mistakes and failures, so many are lessons and successes in life.
Staying conscientious is sine qua non of great learning. Also staying curious about phenomena occurring in our surroundings makes us learned. By keeping one's eyes, ears and heart open, we may have the learning beyond our imagination. So, cease getting afraid of committing mistakes and staying inert to finally enlighten and enrich yourself with knowledge because learning is never perfect.
