Listen To Your Inner Teacher

When my yoga teacher said these words I realized how learning is a lot about looking inward for guidance

If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, you are right either way.

Dr Maria Montessori said, “The real preparation for education is the study of one’s self.”

1. Figure out your strengths

So keep focussing inward, and know that your path is yours alone to learn and figure out.

2. Be open to surprises

Before you know it, one fine day, without any inkling, your body or your mind will help you experience that eureka or aha moment.

3. Tap into your innate curiosity

The more knowledge you have, the richer and more diverse will your range of experiences be in that area of learning.

4. Understand how to learn

5. Correct yourself, often

6. Define your “normal”

Learning, just like everything else nowadays, is all about customization.

7. Sometimes, just listen

If we can’t listen to another with our full being, can we then truly listen to ourselves, and the inner teacher guiding us in the direction of our true calling?

8. Commit to growth

The reasoning mind may want to quantify growth, but the learning mind knows that the results of learning will manifest themselves in different ways.
