Why Learn New Skills?

There were so many things that used to interest me and so many new skills I’d have loved to learn. I used to jumped from one course to another, from one classroom to the next and changed my mind as soon as something else, a little more exciting, came along. I learned much, yes, but I never accomplished much after all or was just an average.


To learn new skills you need to have a WHY. And I didn’t have it. I was only interested, flirting with an idea, but I didn’t have a deep motive behind it to sustain and actually learn the skill properly. Often I was influenced by fashion, often by what my friends were doing too, or just by what I should have been doing conditioned by my family, work or environment. But none of them were strong enough reasons to stay committed until I successfully conquered it.

All that taught me that unless I really have a strong WHY I’ll be forever only interested to learn but never actually master anything or much of it. The reason WHY is the initial point of the journey. When you perfectly establish the “WHY” you will never derail.

My journey to become an entrepreneur and free myself from an employment started exactly with a strong desire. With the strongest WHY you could imagine. I was already so fed up being surrounded by “strange” people that were happily dumping their life’s disappointment, anger and frustrations onto their more vulnerable colleagues, distributing their negativity and forcing their egos, that I had no choice but to fully commit to my entrepreneurship and succeed in it. There was no turning back.


My beginnings were hard, I’d found myself looking at all the information and stuff to learn and absorb, frustrated and confused thinking “what the hell I got myself into? why didn’t I just remain in my old life and continue in it without major challenges and uncertain future?” Well, as soon as the little devilish voice started talking to me, I sobered up and reminded myself of the choices:

1) STAY IN your obsolete life and hate it, including yourself, forever, pretend you are happy, just because you are comfortable, fear the unknown just for the sake of it, or

2) GO FOR IT!! Give it all you have, all your energy and reasons, all your brains. A brain has more capacity than it shows. Fear the unknown, yes, but turn your fear into your fuel and a drive and don’t you ever, but ever, turn back!

At the end of the day, what have I got to lose than just a say: What the hell, at least I’ve tried, at least I will not hate myself for not have tried when I had a chance, when it comes to counting my days. In the end, we’ll all die…

And what have I got to gain?? Everything!!! My dream life, my FREEDOM, my desired lifestyle, my everything!!

So I really had no choice but to try to learn new skills. I had to do it for myself, for my children, but also for those that were skeptical and didn’t believe in me.

And there is no way back. My strong why WAS and still IS my drive, my charging energy, my daily reminder of how it could be… and when I can’t find a reason why to continue, I remember the reason why I have started!

To be able to change your life you need to have a big enough “why” to learn new skills. There is no other way…

And you can do it too, and even better!
