I’m almost certain you’ve heard the phrase “the more you learn the more you earn”.
It’s very true, and as the new year is in full swing…
I thought it would be a good idea to give you actionable steps and strategies for learning and getting good at anything fast, so you can increase your income faster than you ever imagined.
Before we begin, it’s important you’re patient with yourself.
Everyone learns at different rates, and in different ways.
Learning takes time and effort, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can fast-track your absorption of concepts and skills.
How to Uncover Your Favorite Learning Style
Some people are more visual and learn best with pictures and videos…
Some are more auditory and learn best with sounds and Mp3s…
Some are kinesthetic and learn best by doing, and some learn best by reading.
What do you think your favorite way of learning is?
That’s one of the biggest problems with the school system, it’s passive learning, and they make everyone learn the same way.
So, now you know your best learning style, don’t deviate from it.
3 Ways To Set Yourself Up For Success
1. Set specific learning goals
You must clearly define what you want to learn and why.
When you know the reason why you’re learning something, it gives you the motivation you need to continue when you run into roadblocks.
2. Environment is KEY
Your environment is always more powerful than your willpower.
If your environment doesn’t support your learning goals, you’ll make things more difficult than they have to be.
Find a quiet and comfortable place free of distractions.
3. Retain What You Learn
Find the best method of retaining what you learn.
Be sure to test yourself on the material by using flashcards or quizzing yourself, or asking someone else to test you.
How To Become A Fast Learner
Not only does the school system make everyone learn the same way.
They don’t actually teach you HOW to learn.
They just give you the information and it’s your job to work out how you learn best.
That’s why so many students get discouraged and think they’re stupid.
Because they’re not understanding the concepts they’re being tested on.
Having a solid blueprint to follow that ensures you’ll pick things up faster is KEY…
Why WHO You Learn From Is MORE IMPORTANT Than What You Learn
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I believe WHO you learn from is more important than what you learn.
It’s something the content creator in the previous video alluded to as well.
I highly suggest you watch the video above, as it outlines 3 ways you could learn and which I believe is the best way to give you the best chance of success…
And why other ways of learning are a waste of your time.
How To Get Good At Anything FAST
When learning any skill there are 6 things you must do to ensure you get the information and feedback you need to progress at a steady and fast pace.
One of the biggest things you can do to fast-track your learning is by figuring out what the key points of leverage are.
For example, if you learned the top 100 Spanish words, you could be around 50% fluent.
Why I Don’t Read Books
What I’m about to share with you is VERY counter-intuitive.
If you’re someone who likes reading but doesn’t get the results you desire from books, then pay close attention to what I say next.
I read 2-3 books per week, but I rarely read a book cover to cover.
Because I’m not reading for pleasure.
I’m reading for action steps.
Every book I read, I look for action steps I can implement right away.
This cuts down my reading time significantly and allows me to implement FAST.
How To Improve Your Reading Speed
Even though I don’t often read entire books, reading at a faster pace allows me to read and implement even faster.
Now you don’t have to go crazy and read multiple books per week.
You must pick your books wisely and only implement what makes sense to you.
That’s where self-awareness comes in, and that’s a newsletter topic for another week.
I hope you’ve found this newsletter valuable.
If you implement just a handful of these tips, you’ll look back one year from now and you’ll be amazed at what you’ve achieved.
Till next time,
P.S. – With all this in mind, now you’re in a great position to develop a high-income skill faster than you would have before.
