When you are curious you naturally have a strong desire to learn. Inquisitive people are constantly interested in new ideas, experiences, and probing other peoples thoughts; they are continually asking why? Being inquisitive is a trait of self-motivated learners. The way you approach learning has nothing to do with your age and everything to do with your attitude. We need to be more like children, who are constantly asking why questions with no concern about how foolish the question may appear. Asking more why questions means curbing your ego and opening yourself up to being more vulnerable. It also means adopting a beginner’s attitude.
The single greatest difference between inquisitive, growing people and those who are not is simply the belief that they can change and grow through learning. To live a learners life means taking risks – failing as well as succeeding. People who grow the fastest see failure as opportunities to learn; they don’t delay by constantly searching for the perfect answers; they break through their wall of fears and just do it, learning as they go.
Adopt an inquisitive learners attitude to grow faster and higher. Open your mind to accept new realities of the truth; search for multiple options to solutions. Take pleasure in the journey and explore the learning opportunities at every turn.
