Learn, Grow and Inspire. You may have noticed these three words plastered around this site or on my Youtube channel.. But why these three words? Well, I am going to tell you and hopefully, by the end of this article, I might even be able to convince you to do the same.
So why “Learn, Grow and Inspire?
Well, let’s look each word in more detail.
“I am still learning” – Michaelangelo (Age 82)
What is it to learn? It means learning from the experiences of life; the good and the bad, it means reading, watching videos, documentaries, listening to podcasts or audiobooks. Anything that we can get our hands on that will help us to develop ourselves into a better person. In an age of information, we really have no excuse for not finding ways to learn something new every single day.
By constantly learning we naturally begin to form new ideas, aspirations and ways of viewing the world. Which helps us begin to develop into a better person. Which leads us to our next word.
“True nobility isn’t about being better than anybody else, it is about being better than you used to be” – Wayne Dyer
Growth is a vital component of life. What happens to a stream of water when it stops flowing and moving? It becomes stagnant and dirty. It must, therefore, continue moving and flowing in order to keep it’s purity and strength. The same is true for us as human beings.
We are meant to be constantly moving ourselves forward, expanding and improving ourselves, taking risks, learning from our mistakes and pursuing our goals and dreams. Because all of these things work to better ourselves, not to be better than others but so that we can be of greater service to others and to the world. Which leads us to our final word.
“When you’re living the best version of yourself, you inspire others to live the best version of themselves” – Steve Maraboli.
I believe that this is the most important word of the three. You see the greatest of all humans needs is the need to contribute, the need to make a difference, to leave the world a little bit better than before we arrived. Whether that be for the environment, for people or for animals.
It is our duty as human beings to take this incredible gift that each of us has been given and use it to its full potential. As the famous motivational speaker, Les Brown says “Live full, die empty”.
This means following our gut, our dreams, our passions and ultimately our purpose. Whether that purpose is grand or humble. Both are as important as each other because they serve to better the world and the lives of others in some way.
You see each and every one of us has something that to give to this world, something that no one else can give, something that makes each of us unique. And it is to each of us to find it and give it away.
I believe that true success is stepping so much into our own innate greatness, that we inspire others to find theirs.
So why learn, grow and inspire?
Because when we learn we begin to grow and when we grow we start to improve ourselves and become a better person. And when we improve ourselves we then inspire others to do the same. And if enough of us do this then slowly, but surely, the world, will begin.. to change.
That’s my thoughts anyway.
