At present, and in the coming future being a self-learner will be the most competitive advantage that an individual ( man or woman) can acquire to progress.
I will suggest that you view this video which will urge you to shun the approach and attitude of the majority of merely entertaining themselves, and strive to be among the upper levels of achievers and successful people and focus on learning and being creative : https://youtu.be/wlCz8nkDNqo
Once you develop this attitude of being creative and a having a desire to learn, you will find this ~ 5 minute video of the former US President, who wants to learn particle Physics at the age of 70 very inspirational: Bill Clinton on lifelong learning: https://youtu.be/L_nUOfaWEC4
You might now be excited to start your self-improvement through self-learning journey, but feel that you need some hand holding. Well, here is a ~10 minute video by the motivational speaker Jim Rohn listing three steps for a brand new life: https://youtu.be/ORIjy0WLPPs
By this time, you would be beginning to appreciate the importance of good habits. So here is a ~ 7 minute video about the power of discipline as an essential ingredient of success by another great motivational guru, Brian Stracy : https://youtu.be/pyNfB24Eo4A
Failing to plan is planning to fail, is a nice way of remembering the key takeaway from this.
As you watch these videos, the AI recommendation engines will be doing their work and you will be flooded with information on more videos about self-improvement, not only of Jim Rohn, but of others such as Brian Tracy, Seth Godin, Robin Sharma, Dale Carnegie, Steven Covey, Shiv Khera, Zig Ziegler……and soon you will have the problem of not having enough time to learn all that you want.
At this point of time, a video about managing your time efficiently is a useful one. So here is a ~ 20 minute video on how to multiply your time : https://youtu.be/y2X7c9TUQJ8
