Don't you just wish you could coast for a while on your success what you already know? You want to get everything done and handled successfully and then just lay back and relax for a while.
Well, you know how success happened in the tortoise and hare fable. The tortoise kept plugging along consistently moving forward while the hare figured he was far enough ahead in the race to success he could take a break and nap a little. The tortoise attitude wins in life.
Maybe ten years ago you heard all the hoopla, you thought, about internet marketing. The gurus were saying if you don't have a website you don't have a business. They encouraged us to go around to businesses and get them started with a web presence.
Maybe you believed the information and maybe you didn't do anything about it.
But look around you. Almost every business you find today will have a website. Many have a full web presence with automated systems and products to buy online. Do you ever wish you had taken action on the internet information you heard?
What else are you hearing right now that you may not be taking advantage of? What are the boomers' concerns? What changes need to happen and are in fact happening?
Continuing education and success coaching are essential no matter what your field of expertise. Maybe continuing education is required of you in certain professions like medicine, insurance, financial planning, real estate and education. Even where the law does not require your continuing education, it is still an absolute must.
Parenting styles are changing, business development is changing, internet marketing is changing. If you don't step up to the plate for continuing education and success coaching, you will surely be left behind.
Change is inevitable. Would you want things to stay the same? Imagine what life would be like if people had not continually educated themselves so ideas could evolve. How would you be washing your clothes or obtaining your food right now? How would you get to work or other places of interest, by horse?
Continuing education is exciting. It keeps you alive and vibrant. It allows for people to stay in the game of life instead of retiring from work only to find they have retired from life itself. Continuing education is like an exercise program for the mind, keeping you in mental shape.
Find a topic you are passionate about and continue to learn about it. In fact, if you do continue your education on a topic of your passion, you may eventually create the next innovative change that others will have to learn to keep up the pace with you. It's inevitable.
Keep up the pace, or fall out of the race...
