Cruel summers seem to be a thing throughout history. There was a popular song called Cruel Summer by Banarama and recently a new thriller was released by the name of Cruel Summer. The reality is that, while these may be only songs or movies, summers can be cruel when you feel like you haven’t accomplished what you needed. It is a reminder that the year is nearing its halfway mark.
Before you know it, in a blink of an eye, a new year starts and you may feel like you’ve wasted a year. I’ve been there. I have friends who think the same way where you genuinely want to improve yourself, but you’re uncertain where to begin especially when you need a little push. If you need a little push, this is why I wrote this post. I wanted to share with you some things that may change your mind. It’s not as time-consuming as you may think. With a touch of a button and willpower, you can achieve anything you dream about.
Here are some reasons you should consider learning a new skill to avoid thinking you’ve wasted another summer. I promise that learning a new skill isn’t as hard as you may think.
New Skills Keep Your Mind Active
You avoid being stressed when you lose a job opportunity. This is because, with every new skill you learn, it’s easier for you to branch out to different areas. Not to mention, your mood can greatly improve with an active mind. When you learn a new skill, it stimulates your brain and releases serotonin which is the chemical responsible for feeling happy.
Your Confidence Builds
I noticed this happen to me. At first, when I didn’t have that many skills, I’d worry a lot. This has changed. I decided to take the initiative and go back to school where I learned that it wasn’t too late for me to continue improving. You don’t need to feel like you’re behind. Every person’s journey is different. While some may start strong, others may finish stronger.
You Attract Positivity
This is one hundred percent true. I realize that the more that I learn the positive and this positive attitude brings lighter people into my life. You learn to attract positivity. When you learn, people gravitate to you because they are attracted to knowledge and self improvement. I admire those around me who are always bettering themselves.
