"The person who stops studying merely because he or she has finished school is forever hopelessly doomed to mediocrity, no matter what the person's calling. The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge." Napoleon Hill

There is no other more powerful way of achieving success than that of self-directed learning. Self education has been and always will be the number one ingredient that has led many a man or woman to live a successful life,--and to maintain it.

Yes! Every person who has achieved significant goals is a lifelong self-directed learner. These people have the habit of engaging in educating themselves continually. They don't only know it's the key to their success, they also love doing it.

To love learning? Absolutely! Once you discover the power of self-directed learning you will start experiencing how it can catapult you forward in your life. Suddenly goals are achieved and things start happening.

The huge difference between self-directed learning and any other form of education is that it is pursued with passion by the student himself. Therefore it is an individual process that satisfies the specific needs of one person as he or she pursues knowledge in a given field of their interest.

Since the knowledge is acquired with a distinctive purpose in mind, it will be successfully applied and therefore lead to a victorious outcome, because knowledge in itself is really not powerful enough to help us to succeed. It is the right application of that knowledge that will make all the difference.

That is why the specific knowledge persistently pursued with a passionate dream in our heart will always lead to the abundant fruit all of us desire for our lives.

If you are struggling to make changes in your life, I want to invite you to become a self-directed learner by learning what your passion is and how to acquire the knowledge to further it. Visit for tips and learn how to teach yourself in my FREE e-book: "The Power of Self-Directed Learning", and my FREE e-course: "Seven Steps to Consistently Change Your Life."

From Bettina Langerfeldt, who teaches people how to pursue their God-given gifts and talents by designing their own education with self-directed learning.
