― W.B. Yeats “Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning “Who am I? I'm just a writer. I write things down. I walk through your dreams and invent the future. Sure, I sink the boat of love, but that comes later. And yes, I swallow glass, but that comes later.”
― Richard Siken To me, lifelong learning is the idea that "learning" isn't just something you do in a classroom to get a grade, it's something that allows you to grow as a person. I was homeschooled until my sophomore year of high school, so I was able to direct a lot of my learning in life. Going to high school was my personal choice, and I think being able to choose a small arts school really helped me grow as a person and mature and come out of my shell and explore my passions. The fact that I was able to direct my education growing up really helped me to form this idea that I can learn something from anyone or any situation, and it made me really passionate about learning. It's something I want to continue doing for the rest of my life (as we all should). I think I've definitely grown through lifelong learning; I've gained new perspectives on life by always being willing to learn from others, and I think that's something that will continue throughout my life as I continue to put myself out there into new experiences. " " I believe that lifelong learning is the creation of self through everyday experiences, whether they are mundane or extraordinary. Since your birth, you are designed to be influenced by the world around you, both negatively and positively. You are a spinning wheel of pottery clay, and you are shaped and molded into who you will become at different intervals in your life by the forces around you. You learn through living, and it leads you to make your own choices and form your own opinions, which in turn influence the way you interact with those around you, and how you move through the world. Learning is a form of expression, and trial and error. Failure to succeed at something does not mean failure to learn, as the most powerful learning often comes from the most crippling failures. So I'm good at these things, so what? Being good at something doesn't mean you'll be good at everything, and that's where lifelong learning comes in - realizing that maybe you're terrible at something, and coming to terms with that, and not hating yourself for it. No one is or ever will be perfect, and continuing to become an independent person through that and through your failures is one of the bravest kinds of learning. Being bad at something makes you just as successful as being great at something, because you learn something new about yourself every time you fail.
