Life is a gift. How often do we tell this ourselves?
When we fail to remind ourselves of this simple yet powerful concept, the world and our possibilities become infinitely smaller. Often, this happens when a part of us looks at external results as the only way to define if what we are doing is meaningful or useful. Very limiting, don’t you think?
The best example in this regard is kids. Their innate sense of curiosity and desire to discover the world without worrying about not having all the answers or what other people may think always inspires me and reminds me that we can and must learn from everything and everyone.
Discovering and continuously renewing ourselves is a wonderful thing we can do when we can let go of our limiting beliefs and all those small fears that hold us back.
Learning thus inevitably becomes one of the main purposes of our life on this earth whether we look at it from a spiritual or more pragmatic perspective.
We live in the so-called VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) world where everything is in continuous change. To successfully live fully in this world, some of the key skills we must all develop as people and professionals is the ability to continuously learn and think creatively to overcome anything coming our way.
That’s great news for two reasons. The first is that it represents an opportunity to live a more empowering life, a life where we can meaningfully progress and explore new possibilities.
The second is that our brain is plastic and designed to learn. What does this mean? See it as a muscle. The more it learns from everything it experiences, the more connections it creates and the stronger and healthier it becomes. Here is a quick 5 min video where you can learn how this process works in more detail.
Equally, having a positive outlook where we focus on seeing every life event whether positive or negative as an opportunity to learn has been proven by neuroscience to be of the 4 pillars behind optimum wellbeing.
So to never stop learning, why not engage in activities that can boost your creativity and help you make the most of your time off work?

Looking beyond what we know and who we currently are is a powerful way to live our daily actions with more curiosity and make a bigger difference.
At 3SSENTIA, we try to live by this motto which is what inspired us to create “Power your curiosity”, a 2 min guided motivational experience to do in between tasks where you will be touched by quotes from influential figures who have put curiosity at the heart of who they are.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
