Beaming smiles, excited chatter, synchronized photo sessions and a spirit of celebration have filled the air. Let us not forget about the most awaited moment in this entire ceremony, the ‘tossing of caps’ – a tradition that has been followed worldwide, ever since the US Naval Academy initiated it in 1912.
The very significance of this gesture symbolizes the end of graduation or method-education. It is indeed alright to feel liberated from an institutionalized form of education, but it is not okay to slip away into a no-learning attitude. Here are five reasons that will prove to you that Learning Never Stops.
1. Life Never Stops Teaching
There are two ways to tackle whatever life offers you – accept things with a positive attitude or struggle to accept reality. Having an open mind, heart, and soul to whatever comes your way makes the journey easier. And the best way to have a positive outlook towards life is to have a zeal for learning. Let us constantly remind ourselves to be humble at every stage of life and be ever ready to accept the insightful lessons that life unfolds.
2. Being Updated Gives You An Edge
Finding yourself lost during a board meet conversation is a sticky situation to put up with. Imagine holding this up with a fake nod and an affirmative tone, when in reality you have no clue about what is being discussed about. Make sure to install applications that provide quick news and what’s trending in your phone or laptop and stay updated with the latest buzz in your neighborhood.
3. Stay Young At Heart Forever
Turning older can be challenging at times when we come across younger folks who easily adapt to the latest technologies, gadgets, and trends that keep changing every day. One of the best ways to feel young at heart is to be like one of them. Travel around, observe, interact, get active in social media, read, write, comprehend – basically take a moment and do things you love to do. The best way of learning is when you enjoy it!
4. Own The Ticket To Success
Longing for that promotion? Grab it for sure by getting equipped with an additional skill set. Whether it is a technical or a theoretical certification, this will surely give you an edge over your teammates at work. If not for a promotion, simply add value to your resume that will build an excellent professional profile. Now, who wouldn’t like a raise in their paycheck?
5. The World Is A University
It is not just from schools or colleges one can learn and gain knowledge. Mother Earth is the greatest teacher of all. Broaden your perspective and look out for windows instead of mirrors. Have a yearning to learn and the world will open up countless opportunities for you. Remember that nothing remains constant in this world and the only way for a blissful co-existence is to adapt and adopt.
Hence, never cease to grow in this beautiful world as Learning Never Stops!
