The answer of the above question must be affirmative because one’s learning starts at his birth and stops at his death, so is life a continuous process of learning. One should therefore regard himself to be a learner rather than a teacher. As he grows older, he needs to know things that are newer and that’s how the process remains for one to be regarded as a learner. This continues for so long as one is alive providing him new ways and new dimensions of life. As it goes in the words of Douglas Adam who says, “You live andlearn, at any rate, you live”.
There are various ways through which you learn new things and new ways. The sources, such as, circumstances and environmental settings teach you many things and many lessons. You also learn by observation in your everyday life and as such there is no end of learning. Wise is the person who is always ready to seek learning, new knowledge, new things and new dimensions of life to increase awareness, to benefit and educate himself and others accordingly.
In all the areas of life there is a need of learning and bringing improvements so as to live a fulfilling life. The ideology that one must try to develop oneself in terms of wisdom and education and experience and awareness, regardless of age or any other factor that can hinder the process of learning, is always admirable, for not only it causes one to enhance his knowledge and awareness but also achieve his own goals, while it enables him to be an ideal for others to be followed.
No one is perfect in the world and everyone lacks something or another or in one wayor another that he needs to learn, understand and develop throughout his life. If one is to claim that he knows everything, the moment he says can change and shows him new aspects of life in that he begins to feel and realize that he lacks it and he must have known it before. So is the moment of one’s life brings new ideas and causes one to realize that he is not perfect and he is to still learn more. It can thus be said that one must love learning and treasure the quality of being inquisitive of new knowledge, information, awareness, ideas and facts that can stand to benefit himself and others. Life is a learning process, you learn and develop throughout your life. So, keep learning and enhance your knowledge. Your intellectual property that has been gained through learning will always be yours as it goes in this saying, “The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.”
