Chelsea here today with Chelsea’s Huggable Huddle. Our motivational quote of the day is, “The purpose of learning is growth. And our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live.” And you know, that’s so true. Like, Chelsea’s right. Our bodies stop growing, then … Well, they grow, they get older, our ears get bigger, our nose gets wider, our teeth fall out.
Not mine, yet. But our hair does fall out. But our minds need constant nourishment to grow. Like, your mind doesn’t stop. And even as you get … Like I’m 60, Chelsea you’re 33. And even at 60 I learned more this year than I last year, I learned more last year than the year before. And it’s that unstoppable need to learn, to learn more, to do more, to be more. And I think that’s why you get … Actually when you’re younger you need it, so you can get the better jobs. When you’re in the middle of your life cycle you need it so you can feed your family better. And as you get older and get in your pretty zone like me, you need it just to keep your mind going because so many of my friends, they stop their mind. And when their mind stops, funny thing but the rest of them stops. So continue to learn, never stop learning. I think, I mean, I have a lot of motivation as I get older to learn, learning from my dad. At 60 he knows how to do, you know, the iCloud. Most people don’t even. So I think it’s just, it’s always good to see as you get older, it’s so easy to say, “Oh, I don’t need to read a book.” I think there are, like people read one book in like 10 years after they leave university. But you gotta keep growing your mind to grow your future, to grow yourself. And if you stop reading, you stop learning, you’re gonna be caught dead in the water. And there’s gonna be people who are learning, and they’re gonna pass you in every aspect. Yes. And I think actually as you get older, reading is so important because you know, there are … Dementia and some disease set in. I think if you constantly challenge your mind and do those mind things and read and learn, and grow your mind, I think as you get on in life, it’s actually safer for you, and you’ll live a better life. I want to thank you for coming here to Chelsea’s Huggable Huddle. I hope we’ve motivated you today. Whether you’re younger or older, pick up a book, read, always be learning, always trying to get ahead. Have a huggable day.
