Why is it important to take your brain back to school after you’ve retired?
Going Back to School for Adults to Stay a Younger-U is what keeps you younger longer and can help your health stay better longer. Here are a few thoughts about learning something new be it a craft, hobby, sport, card game, crossword puzzles, computer games, etc. The real message is learn how to play with Life situations easily by expanding what you know and what you share with others. We are the only society of species that the members of that group retire and stop being productive. Each of of us has something unique to contribute to benefit the whole of society regardless of our age.
We can always learn from others!
When my daughter was 9 years young, I used a strategy to help her find some of her talents at a very young age that would stay with her the rest of her life. When we tap into our talent base in our memory banks, we unleash on many levels, a whole collage of skill sets that can be used in multiple aspects of life. In one of the games I got her at that time was Nintendo. She had such an incredible attitude about learning new information and applying it to whatever problems life threw at her. In watching her play the game she would go way beyond what I had been able to do on the game, but one day she made an error in playing the game. “Out of the mouths of babes come much wisdom. Instead of following a path of being upset about making a mistake in the game and not completing the series of obstacles, my daughter said, “ Oh that alright daddy I get to do that game over and learn to work thru that obstacle. “ I was floored by her comment . And then I learned from my daughter something all of can benefit from. Life provides us with may opportunities to use our God given talents and experience the joy of tapping into our unlimited supply of help, knowledge and skills that are already resident inside each and everyone of us. It is there in the form of a little memory trick that most of us are familiar with. A-S-K!
When you ask the right question, you get the right answer!
ASK that question for there is always an immediate answer just waiting for us to be open to receive that answer instantaneously.
SEEK and ye shall find the answer you can use to solve any situation you involved in!
KNOCK and that door will always be opened. The answer is always there. Yet sometimes is not opened necessarily the way we may have wanted it to be opened. Nonetheless, the door is opened and leads us to the solution of any situation in life we ask about. We just have to be open to travel the maze to the completed results.
When we’re young, we learn so quickly!
My daughter was always open to look at the game with expectant eyes and knowing she was right close to solving any challenge the game threw her way. Well several days later I would check on her progress and here is what I heard . “Joy, have you solved the game problem.?” “Oh yes daddy! It was really simple. I’m working on a new game that is really much harder and has many more layers than the last one I worked on. This same scenario was repeated over and over as I challenged her with newer and more complex games to solve . Initially she would say this is really a hard game. Every few days later she would figure out how to solve the maze of the game no matter how complex and announce to me that “Oh, daddy that was really just easy once I got the hang of what the strategy of the game was.
Each of us can learn something very significant about our own latent abilities to solve any problem that life presents to us. Each of us have the hidden ability to ask the right question and know that the answer is always there waiting for us to receive it. . . Sometimes we just need to change our focus, our perception or the way we think or see or hear the small voice inside telling us the way to the solution.
