The Need to Study – Can Study Aid Your Growth?

Study can at times become stressful, and if you have a number of other commitments may be extremely difficult to find the time to do it at the level that is required to achieve your objectives. But with most things in life, you could improve it by careful planning. Indeed if you look at things which may tend to succeed in life, you could find that a good plan of action is being followed. At times you may find it hard to motivate yourself, but if you have a big reason this could give you the drive to continue when you might feel low. For example if your driving desire is to improve your mental growth, then you could remind yourself of this at the times you need self-encouragement.

Can mental Growth come via study?

If you consider that while you study you will need discipline in-order to do the work required to progress on the course, you could find that your self-discipline can improve while you are pursuing your course of study. So you will be gaining the valuable quality of self-discipline. The fact is you could find that you are developing many valuable skills and qualities while you work through your course. The fact is you could find you gain many benefits than just gaining a new body of knowledge. These skills and disciplines that you acquire could in-fact help you in many areas of your life. So you could find that by really making a very good effort, you could develop things that will give you great benefit.

Growth or decline

It could be an interesting idea that if a person is not growing mentally then they may be declining. If you consider that your body needs regular exercise for you to remain healthy and fit then you can see the need for doing things in a consistent regular way. But if a person stops regular exercise then their body would begin to become less healthy. So based on that idea you could say the same thing applies with the mind and study. For example if you are doing regular study your mind would be growing; you could say that you are becoming mentally healthy or fit. but if you were to stop studying, then you could find that your mind is not getting the challenges that lead to your mind developing. So this could be a good argument for the need of regular study, to ensure that your mind is remaining healthy. Indeed this gives rise to an interesting thought.

Growth by facing challenges

There are many times you could find challenging and difficult situations in your life, but these situations may in-fact be helping you to grow. If you think back to times when you went through mentally challenging times you may find that you have grown mentally due to the fact that you had to raise your skill level in-order to master the problem.

Indeed it could be said that by overcoming problems, you could be growing in mental strength. So these challenging times might actually be working for your benefit. So these could actually be a part of your continual learning. And this may be adding to your on-going mental growth.

But you may see that if a person was to receive knowledge in the wrong order may in-fact lead to problems. So what are the basics that need to be learnt first?

The Power of Happy Thoughts

The Idea of happy thoughts

Could it be suggested that power can be found in focusing on happy thoughts? In life we could find that everyday you may encounter various challenges during the course of the week. There could be a number of things that cause you to have feelings of unhappiness, but could situations change depending on how you view them? For example four people could view the same event in four different ways, so the outlook that you have on a situation may in-fact allow the situation to change from a problem into an opportunity. The idea of living in a freezing cold home might be seen as a challenging situation, but on the other hand going on a holiday attempting to climb an icy mountain may be seen as an adventure. In both situations you will be in cold conditions, but they may be viewed in different ways. So this could lead to the idea:

Can the way you view a situation make it happy?

Could it be a fact that you have the power to Change your situation based on the outlook you have towards the situation. How easy or difficult is it to change your outlook on a situation that you face, it could be said that some things may be easier to change than other things. And some challenges may require more effort than other challenges. It has been said by some people we are the creatures of habit, if it is the case that we do things according to habit, then to change your situation may require changing your habit. To break an old habit might require a great deal of effort over a period of time, it could be suggested that it may take 30 days to change some habits.

The Determined Mind

You may find that changing an old habit may change for a few days, but then you could find that you have reverted back to the old habit. So how can you change this pattern. The answer is there is no easy solution, you have to be determined and you need to keep trying. Even when you fail a number of times, but a key is to learn from the failure and make a new plan and try again. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he was able to eventually make the light bulb, so determination is a quality that is important to develop. Just because you have failed a number of times, does not mean you are a failure, it just means you have another opportunity to attempt to succeed.

Working Towards Your happiness

So keep working towards your desire to find happiness. You may even find that happiness may be found deep inside of yourself. An interesting thought is that real happiness may not be in gaining external things, but may be in the act of learning from life. It has been said that you should enjoy the journey and not just focus on the destination. So Could it be a useful idea to look at the things that make you happy and give you great joy? Maybe by deep concentrated thinking you might work out the key to what things make you feel the greatest happiness. What do you think – Thoughts to make you think
