How Do You Learn?

Some good information from Dennis Waitley:

In a way, human beings behave like bees.  If you place several bees in an open-ended bottle and lay the bottle on its side with the base toward a light source, the bees will repeatedly fly to the bottle bottom toward the light.  It never occurs to them to reverse gears and try another direction.  This is a combination of genetic programming and learned behavior.

Put a bunch of flies in that bottle and turn the base toward a bright light.  Within a few minutes, all the flies will have found their way out.  They try all directions—up, down, toward the light, away from the light, often bumping into the glass—but sooner or later they flutter forth into the neck of the bottle and out the opening.

We often allow ourselves to become locked in our present circumstances, even if we are unhappy and really want to be reaching in a new direction.  What we’re doing may make us miserable, but at least it’s familiar.  One of the most important factors in achieving personal success is the willingness to try things out, to experiment, to test new ground.  In fact, this is the only way to learn and progress: trial, error, feedback, knowledge, trial and success.  It is a far better thing to try to succeed and fail than to do nothing and succeed.
