“Life is a never-ending process of learning, understanding, and growing.” This philosophy has been instilled in me since my early years, thanks to my father, who used to say, “If you don’t know how to do something, figure it out.”
Growing up, I had an insatiable curiosity. I found immense joy in dismantling electronics, peering into their inner mechanisms, and piecing them back together. It was like solving an intricate puzzle that held the secret workings of our daily life.
Libraries were my sanctuaries before the advent of Google. I would spend countless hours immersing myself in a variety of how-to books. From drawing and painting to crafts and model building, every new knowledge was a treasure.
My thirst for learning didn’t stop there. As I grew older, it only expanded. Today, I still indulge in my passion for reading, complemented with an array of podcasts that feed my curious mind. From creating websites and apps to illustrating children’s books and even learning the art of makeup application, my quest for knowledge is ceaseless.
The martial arts legend, Bruce Lee, once said, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” This quote resonates deeply with me as it encapsulates my philosophy towards learning. Knowledge is not a trophy to be admired from a distance, but a tool to be wielded, applied, and shared.
Being the son of a teacher, I suppose this incessant desire to learn—and to teach—is in my DNA. I find fulfillment in sharing what I know and inspiring others through knowledge. To me, learning is not just an act of self-improvement; it is a form of service, a way of contributing to the world.
Never halt your learning journey, for it is intertwined with the journey of life itself. The moment we stop learning, we stop growing. Continually inspire and share, for knowledge has a ripple effect that reaches far beyond our perception. Each bit of knowledge you impart can potentially touch and transform countless lives.
So, go forth and learn. And remember, knowledge is not just to be kept; it’s to be applied and shared. In the grand tapestry of life, we are all learners and teachers in our own right. Always be learning.
