The Power of Knowledge: Why Is it Worth Studying?

When we talk about studying, most of us recall their school memories, when they had to study so many “stupid things” and do many tests.
I find it such a disappointing fact, that most of us lost inspiration and only had bad memories in connection with studying.

If we think it over, we can easily realize that we study in our entire life and what is more, it helps us to become the best versions of ourselves.
The main problem is when we lose motivation too early, and later it won’t be easy to continue studying.
If we can achieve this, a brand-new, wonderful world will open with full of opportunities.

I remember, as a child, I adored studying, I was interested in almost everything and I wanted to understand how the things work in the world, but after a while I became lazy, and had no goals.
I simply vanished in the tasks, exercises and textbooks.
Now I see, it was too much for a child.
I felt horrible when I figured out how many years I spent this way.

A few years ago I discovered again not just the essence and benefits of studying, but also the happiness it can provide as well. I could create a positive way of thinking, which gives me energy every single day to study and be open-minded.

I believe, studying is a kind of a happiness, because it is able to bring so many opportunities and possibilities:
thanks to our knowledge, we have a bigger chance to reach our goals and our dreams.

The base of having a conscious life is:
studying, being educated,
getting and understanding information.
It’s important to find ourselves and what we are interested in, so our efforts won’t be pointless.

We should never underestimate studying, because having a real knowledge is impossible without hard work, persistence, time and of course a little bit of brain.

This complex process makes studying so valuable and uniqe.
It is a kind of an investment, that probably won’t carry an interest immediately, but it will definitely bring us closer to our goals.
The way I see,
knowledge is power.

And what is the best part of it?
In a normal case, nobody never can take your knowledge, it belongs to you forever.

Last but not least, it is also good to keep in mind, that studying shouldn’t be suffering, because it means the simplest way to have a better life and a better world.

Studying is cool,
what are you waiting for?

A tudás hatalom: miért érdemes tanulni?

Mikor a tanulásról van szó, sokan a kínkeserves, hosszú iskolaéveket idézik fel önmagukban, mikor mindenféle értelmetlennek tűnő dolgot kellett megtanulni, bemagolni, majd erről a ”tudásról” számot adni.
Sajnálatos tény, hogy sokunknak azonnal elment a kedve az egésztől, motiválatlanná vált, és szinte csak rossz emlékek jutnak az eszébe a tanulással eltöltött idővel kapcsolatban.

Pedig ennek nem így kellene lennie…

Ha belegondolunk, a tanulás valójában egy klassz dolog, amely az egész életünkön át elkísér minket és segít, hogy a lehető legtöbbet hozzuk ki magunkból.
A probléma forrását legtöbb esetben az adja, hogy túlságosan korán veszítjük el a tudás iránti vágyat, és utána már nem könnyű újra rávenni magunkat a tanulásra.
Viszont ha sikerül, akkor egy új, csodálatos világ tárul elénk, amely számtalan lehetőséget rejteget.

Emlékszem, gyerekként mennyire szerettem tanulni:
lenyűgözött a világ működése, próbáltam összefüggéseket, magyarázatot találni minél több dologra, aztán egyszer csak azt vettem észre,
hogy lusta, céltalan lettem.
Egyszerűen belefulladtam a hatalmas mennyiségű tananyagba,
és már egyre kevesebb dolog érdekelt.
Fájdalmas volt rádöbbennem, hogy mennyi évet töltöttem el így…

Azóta, hogy pár éve ismét felfedeztem a tanulás jelentőségét, illetve a benne rejlő örömet,
sikerült kialakítanom egy olyan pozitív szemléletmódot,
amely nap mint nap motivál,
hogy tanuljak, mindig nyitott szemmel járjak, és minél többet megértsek a világ történéseiből.

Hiszem, hogy a tanulás egyfajta boldogság,
ugyanis lehetőségek sorát hordozza:
a tudásunknak köszönhetően nagyobb esélyünk lesz arra, hogy közelebb kerüljünk céljainkhoz, álmainkhoz.

A tudatos élet alapja
a tanulás, az információszerzés,
a felismerés és a megértés.
Fontos, hogy mindezek mellett ismerjük önmagunkat, megtaláljuk azt, ami minket érdekel, képesek legyünk hatékonyan tanulni, különben erőfeszítéseink hiábavalóak.

Sosem szabad alábecsülni a tanulást, hiszen a valódi tudás megszerzéséhez kitartás, szorgalom, kemény munka, idő és olykor még egy kis ész is szükséges.
A tanulást ez az összetett folyamat teszi igazán értékessé.
Egy befektetés, amely ugyan nem mindig kamatozik azonnal, viszont az életben előrevisz minket, sőt
egyfajta hatalommal ruház fel.

És mi a legjobb az egészben?
Az, hogy a tudást
-optimális esetben-
soha senki nem veheti el tőlünk,
a miénk marad örökre.

Végül,
nem árt észben tartani azt sem,
hogy a tanulás nem feltétlenül jelent szenvedést, hanem sokkal inkább jelenti a járható utat egy boldogabb élet felé.

Tanulni élmény,
ne hagyd ki!

  1. Lovely post on the importance to improve yourself and stay curious and alert throughout. I used to say to my students (when /if they complained about some courses) ,that if not motivated now, they would find out later why this was important…and what would you use in a conversation at a big, important dinner? Old and diverse knowledge might always come in handy…!

  2. Thank you for sharing! It is true that a person has to approach studying with an open mind. Especially as a liberal arts college student, I see a lot of people complaining about coursework outside of their major, but in so many ways the classes outside of my major have informed how I move through my chosen topics!

  3. You know it’s funny. I’m prepping for my GRE exam, and I’m currently doing the math bit. I find that I’m able to understand the math now so much better than I did when I was first being taught in school! It’s amazing how studying the same concepts but at different ages in life, opens your eyes to your own learning process and how it has grown along with you over the years!

  4. From my point of view, studying means training our brain the same way we train muscles elsewhere in our bodies. I am a keen learner and always was. Having said that, I find the informal learning in life (through books, rich conversations, travel, work, an open mind etc.) as important as the formal learning at schools, universities, and the like.

  5. It makes me rethink how come I hate study so much. I sometimes really annoyed by myself how I not treasuring the opportunity of learning and studying. The whole life of learning in education sectors makes me losing interest in most of the things. I can’t control the way that I think it is boring and useless as I always learn for exams and the knowledge faded by time after 2 weeks of exam. Also, sometimes the peers make you feel like you will be a nerd if you enjoying study too much. I know learning will be a good investment if you want to achieve something but I feel like I already don’t know what I want to achieve. Nevertheless, “real” learning can help people equip themselves to face unknown challenge and hold tight on opportunity. I always remind myself about this when I want to be lazy and lose motivation in studying.

  6. Great post! I wish I had studied more, but I did learn later in life to study more. With the internet available, studying should never end. I didn’t know about the birds I write about until later. They are fascinating.
    Your quote, “Last but not least, it is also good to keep in mind, that studying shouldn’t be suffering, because it means the simplest way to have a better life and a better world.” Is so true.
    It is enjoyable to learn new things, and even re-study “old things.” [At 75, I have forgotten a few things. 🙂 ]

  7. Written wonderfully,
    I guess I would say “knowledge” is person specific, what each person consider as worthy of learning. Since one can argue that knowledge is really about acquiring new information, but is every “new information” considered as acquiring knowledge?

  8. While school was long ago, I love learning new things and improving my French. Due to where I live, I hope to add Spanish and perhaps, Italian to the list… I enjoy learning about holistic treatments, the re-greening projects in Africa and the Gobi desert in China. Honestly, the list is endless. 🙂
