The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live.

Where life leads

Life has a good number of hidden treasures for you today, and every day. Will you take the opportunity to discover them, or will you heedlessly pass them by?

People have plenty of interesting and useful things to say to you. Will you really listen, and learn, or just assume you already know what they’re going to tell you?

Sure, you’re clear about what you want. But maybe there are other options, better possibilities, that you don’t even know about yet.

Life’s best treasures are not always where you think they will be. You have to be open to finding them where you don’t expect to find them.

Sometimes a wrong turn can end up taking you to the best route forward. Sometimes a crushing disappointment can set you on the path to an amazing triumph.

Have the humility, the curiosity, the faith, wonder, and sense of adventure to follow where life leads. Open yourself to discover and experience richness you didn’t even know was there.
