“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.” Brian Herbert
Brian Herbert encourages us to want to expand our trough of knowledge if at all possible. There is so much that is available to be learned in regards to a brain injury. Many strides are being made and people who have the capacity to learn should always try and expand their knowledge base. As he has stated, the capacity to learn is a gift and I choose to utilize my gift by choosing to learn as much as possible. I attend seminars frequently to learn what is at the forefront of brain injury recovery. I think that knowledge is the key and that everyone should choose to be as well versed as possible in his/her life. Injured or not there are many facets that an individual can decide to focus on. I am a huge advocate for mentorship and I believe that people who have experience in any outlet of life hold the key as to what is important.
When I was in school there was a phenomenal mentorship program that I was able to utilize. I learned the value of learning from people who have experience. I choose to absorb as much information as possible from the mentors. Next week I will attend a seminar where there will be an informational lecture regarding proactive brain injury recovery. I am choosing to attend this seminar to absorb as much information as I can in regards to the knowledge of brain injury research. I have become friendly with many families where there is an injured member of their nucleus. The common trait among them is that there is always a desire to learn more in regards to cutting edge brain injury recovery. I would love to hear from any survivors or family members who have attended seminars in relation to brain injury. We can all learn from each other. The largest piece of advice that a survivor can give is how he/she was able to stay busy and remain engaged. A sound mind is an engaged mind. I will always do my part to learn more in regards to my injury and what is being attempted as the newest ventures in brain injury recovery. I will report as to what I learn at the seminar and I thank you very much for reading.
