Why We Should All Be More Teachable

by | Dec 30, 2020 | Everykind, Podcast | 0 comments

Vernon Howard is quoted as saying… “Be teachable. That is the whole secret.” And that, our friends, is like the creamer to our coffee: It makes beautiful, perfect sense! There is a lot that 2020 has taught us about ourselves, our relationships, our passions, our values, our goals, and possibly even what’s missing from our lives that’d we’d like to change/fix or find. As we head into 2021, we should all have a much better understanding that it is what it is, but it becomes what we make it. The best life experiences only teach the teachable. Tune in to this episode and learn why we should all be more teachable!

2020 Vision

2020 really DID help to sharpen our vision, even though it felt pretty blurry most of the time. Now that it’s coming to an end, we can look back and see the rainbow of lessons we might not have even known we were learning that we can take with us into the new year to be prepared for whatever life is going to throw our way. If what it throws is a lesson, let’s learn!

Time for Transitions

There is no doubt that 2020 was both valuable and hard, but one thing is for certain: it allowed us to assess our lives and make room for transitions! And we will all be better for the changes we make because we are prepared to be unprepared. It might sound backwards, but it’s true! When we open our eyes to the world around us and take the time to slow down, things become more clear. 

So Much Has Been Revealed

Politically and otherwise, we have all been (hopefully) faced with eye opening things and events. At the end of the day, we are all humans, and we need to treat each other with love and kindness. Look around. Here we are! We made it through a really hard year, we have assessed what is important to us, and now it’s go time. We learned a lot more than we bargained for this year, so let’s take what we learned to make changes for the better and be willing to learn more!

A Place of Privilege

It is not lost on us that we both come from a place of privilege. It is much easier to talk about all that 2020 has taught us when we have a roof over our heads, a warm home to love our families in, technology and electronics to help us work and our children to learn, etc. But knowing that we are privileged is so important. Being well aware that we are blessed with all that we have enables us to help others. We can use our awareness inside the walls of our own homes, too. And that’s a great way to start.

“By learning you will teach, and by teaching you will learn”

Understanding IS Learning

Although it isn’t always easy or our instinct to want to understand someone you are having a hard time agreeing with, it’s essential. It is also a way to learn how to deal with conflict in our lives! If we wish to be seen, heard, and understood, why shouldn’t we offer others the same grace?

Put In The Effort

To learn, to love, and to be happy. We never know what life has in store for us or for those we love, and because of that, we should all go the extra smile in every aspect of our lives. We get to choose how we spend our lives, so let’s remember that the more we learn, the better our lives will be.
