“Convince yourself every day that you are limitless in order to learn something new on a daily basis!”
Why do we restrict ourselves to the things we know?
Why do we take an interest only in the things which are a part of our studies or job?
Why do we keep on improving our efficiency only where our area of knowledge is strong?
People limit themselves to the things in which they pursue their careers and not the things in which they can gain boundless knowledge. Most of the people just keep one hobby as their side-by-side activity and do not even try to explore new things. Many people even think that their age is gone where they could learn different activities but they don’t know that leaning demands no age barrier. With strong will power, a person can learn new things every day at any age. This is the best way to utilize your spare time in a positive and effective manner. To become an all-rounder, this is the best way!
As it is rightly said, “A learning curve is an essence to grow and further teach.” Therefore one must boost his knowledge whenever and wherever he gets a chance. You probably find yourself in such situations where you can learn something new or such people by whom you may learn something productive.

Rediscover: We always have some childhood wishes which we are unable to fulfill may be due to family issues or career misguidance. Regret always remains in some corner of our mind that “Alas! I wish I could have done that!” For example, a girl wanted to become a dancer and she could not pursue dancing because of family restrictions, she can in her later life learn it and rediscover the joy of what she does not know.
Reduce Stress: The same activities which we continue in our day to day life, make us stressed and depressed at times. We want something which can reduce our workload for which shifting to something new is always the best option. It is the best stress reliever.
Makes you Confident: When a person knows different things, he automatically becomes confident in the corporate and competitive world. Confidence is always gained by putting your leg into the boundary you do not know about. When you start walking in it, you learn new things and you can finally run there.
Discussion topics: Sometimes people who talk frequently are out of topics. One cannot always talk about his daily doings. He needs to have new topics in which he is experienced too. Therefore learning new things will also give you plenty of new topics to talk upon with people.
