Transcript of Moving Forward - Lifelong Learning

If our lives could be made into a legend, then how will we place ourselves as the hero of that legend?
Lifelong Learning
Rising to the Occasion
Applying our Knowledge
How will you be the hero of your own life?
We can be a hero of our lives by taking our time and examining every detail to learn and gain as much as we can and also applying what we have learned for the betterment of others or for the sake of goodness.
We are not as perfect as the gods and goddesses. All heroes start brash, weak, and inexperienced.
We would come across challenges, trials and mistakes and our effort will help us learn from them.
When it is time for the hero to rise to the occasion, he or she risks their life to do something for the sake of others or for the sake of goodness.
In order to learn and strengthen ourselves, we have to go on a voyage for a certain ambition which teaches us the proper traits a hero should have.
Lifelong learning is a key factor in becoming a hero since we all start off weak, brash, and inexperienced.
Even after we have climbed to our highest peaks...
... or have fallen into the greatest depths of valleys ...
... we will still have to learn from the mistakes we have made through the challenges we have experienced.
We will never go over the peaks or through the valleys of our voyage as perfectly as we will hope.
A hero then takes the knowledge that they attained and applies it to daily life.
We change as we learn on our voyage.
We change mentally and physically as we learn.
As we change, our bodies get stronger and begin to learn to endure more physical stress for longer periods of time.
Our minds change by creating new perspectives and by learning to think in a different way. We can look at situations differently and solve them differently.
In order to learn properly, we have to keep an open mind to new opportunities for challenges and adventure.
When we meet new people, we shall open up ourselves and try to make new friends.
It is always better to have another friend than an extra enemy.
The longer our voyage, the longer we will learn.
But patience is required for us to make this voyage long. We need to learn to control this voyage and make this voyage ours.
We have to observe every nuance in the environment around us. We will search for new interests and for new opportunities. Some opportunities come only once in a life time.
Everyone is expected to fulfill certain responsibilities in different ways.
Because of this, there is a difference between doing something extraordinary, and doing your job and being responsible.
When we rise to the occasion as a hero, we need to perform an extraordinary deed, a deed beyond expectations the public has on us.
... is an example of a hero who uses lifelong learning as he has made many mistakes in his life and he learns from his mistakes and moves on, admitting he is wrong.
The Doctor from:
An example would be a fireman:
A fireman is expected to safe as many people as possible who is with in the safe range and put out the fire as fast as he can.
But in Chicago Fire, a fireman decided to go beyond the safe zone, into the collapsing building to save several children.
This fireman went beyond what people expected him to do and risked his own life to save others.
As heroes, we cannot just dream of an event, we have to make it come true.
The knowledge that we will gain should be applied to help us rise to the occasion.
When we rise to the occasion, we will face a conflict and we will be the ones to resolve it.
What we will learn will help us resolve the conflict properly and fairly. The way we resolve this conflict will have an effect on us in the future.
In the Hunger Games:
Katniss Everdeen has applied her knowledge properly for the sake of her country's future. She used the tactics she learned from training to defeat the dictator of her country and the leader of the rebellions. She learned that both leaders would bring the same amount of horror to her country, so she decided to kill them both.
This shows that Katniss made the right decision after using all of what she knows of the conflict within the country.
Knowledge is not only applied while resolving the conflict, but after it as well. The knowledge we learn should be shared with others and passed on so that the future would be better.
In order for others to keep learning what we have learned, we have to create a legacy. Although it may not be a lasting one, but at least the echoes of our past may have a chance to ring in the distant future.
An example of a legacy would be children working hard at a young age to strive to become a professional hockey player.
The professional hockey players are like heroes in their eyes and they leave a legacy for people to look up to. This inspires the next generation to try harder and achieve their goals.
Our Voyage Still Hasn't Ended
We may rise to the occasion one day, but we may fall the next.
After we have finished one goal, we have another to pursue.
There will be moments when life can throw us any obstacle or pleasure.
But there will be moments where we just can't get out of bed.
During those moments, we should push our selves to keep striving for our goals.
Every hero must have a dream of goodness or the betterment of people.
We will have to learn to pursue those dreams and bring them to life ...
... while also applying our knowledge properly to the actions we take ...
... because these actions will affect everyone and everything else in the present and the future.
The hobbits left their peaceful lives to fight Mordor's army. This was an extraordinary task since no one expected them to join Frodo on his quest to the every end.
"When you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives, and that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all people that you used to be."
