I am not afraid to ask questions. I know I can't learn unless I admit what I don't know and seek the answers I need. 

I don’t assume I know all the answers, because that would close me off to learning. Even when dealing with a topic I know a lot about, there are always more tidbits of knowledge to learn.

I know there is always more to learn. Because I know there is more to learn, I keep my mind open to opportunities to learn. As a result I am constantly growing and getting wiser, not older.

Do you have an ever-learning mindset? Have you gone through a period of your life where you felt like you were stagnant and not growing? Post your comments below.
