People find that when it comes to getting the boost of motivation that they need to achieve their personal or professional goals, they look to older mentors for advice, or the people who have done it before.
This is a great place to look if you want someone to model yourself after. However, when it comes to finding some motivational life tips, many people do not realize that the best sources for inspiration are often right in front of them, they just need to look down.
Kids can be some of the best people to look to for motivation and can offer lessons that any adult can benefit from. Many times, it is because kids are still operating with a clean slate, and have not been influenced by their experiences or the world around them.
While there is no way to go back and have the same world view that children do, there are some important life lessons that we can learn from children, if we just take the time to look at the way they view the world.
Here are 4 life lessons to learn from kids;
1. Never stop exploring
When you stop exploring, asking questions and having a general curiosity about the world, you have started to limit yourself and the type of opportunities that can be put in front of you. Kids have this uncanny ability to ask strings of questions in order to find out everything from “why does a bird fly?” to “where do babies come from?”
This mentality of exploring and asking questions cannot only help you learn more, but it may open up new opportunities, passions or pathways that you never considered before.
