If You Want To Be A Winner, Change Your Online Education Philosophy Now!
Are you sick and tired of reading about how to become a winner online? If so, then read on. If not, then skip ahead to the bottom. The choice is entirely yours.
Online education has become the industry standard for training people to become successful. Millions of people choose it to become successful online. It’s not bad. In fact, it’s great. It’s just not a successful education philosophy. Here’s why.
Online education’s biggest advantage is convenience. It’s available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It’s accessible anywhere there is a connection, such as your dorm room or your desktop. Not everyone likes or can work with 24/7 availability. Some prefer to study at their own pace. Some prefer to study when they’re on their own time. Some like to travel for business or pleasure.
Others prefer to stay in the same place for business and study when they’re not. Some are family-oriented and others are not. Some travel for pleasure and prefer to have close family around and others like staying isolated. Some prefer to study at the business office and others prefer to study on their own time in their home office. It’s totally up to you and what you prefer.
Online education has a huge disadvantage, however. It’s not a successful education option if you don’t like learning by reading. To be successful, you have to read well. You have to choose high-quality books that are appropriate for your interests and topics. You have to read them diligently. It’s not good if you read only books written for other people. You have to be your own book reader. If you’re not invested in the books, if you don’t enjoy the process of reading them, if they’re not stimulating and motivating, you are not going to be successful.
So here’s what you can do now.
1. Read more. Don’t be satisfied with what you’ve read or what you’ve been given. Do something with it. Don’t just sit and read. Be involved. Be engaged. Be part of the discussion.
2. Learn to read at your own pace. Some people read at a lightning-fast pace. Some people take longer. It’s up to you. It’s your book. Find out what’s appropriate for you. Then go ahead and read it.
3. Be aware of what you’re reading. Make notes. Analyze what you’ve read. Don’t just read it blindly. If you take notes on what you’ve read, write short explanations of the ideas you’re learning. Read the explanations later. Then you have a better memory. You can reflect on what you’ve learned and your whole process becomes more effective.
4. Be your own book reader. Choose high-quality books that are appropriate for you and your interests and topics. When you’re interested in certain books, buy them. Don’t just browse through. Find a publisher that you feel suits you and that has your interests in their catalog. Next, seek them out and buy them.
The next time you read a book that you like, check out the publisher’s website and check out what their books have to offer. Later, research other publishers and read their books. Keep this process going and the publishers will gladly be your partner in publishing the best books for you.
5. Be your own editor. Choose the best sources of information. When you want to know something, ask someone else. Don’t just take dictation or ask your wife. If you have any objections about any information you’re getting, seek the information somewhere else. Don’t just follow the phone call from your neighbor or your friend. If you have any questions, seek the information somewhere else. Don’t just type the answer into your computer. Select the best sources. Make your own decisions. Then take the information and pass it on or tell the person to ask for the same information from someone else.
It takes much less time and effort to be your own manager and have a greater effect on your life and your business than to just take someone else’s information and have little or no impact. Learn to make decisions and learn to edit your own sources. The effect this will have on your life and your business is immeasurable.
