There are critical areas of learning that you must master if you are going to survive, continue, triumph, flourish and fulfil your God-given destiny. They are as follows:
1. Learning to learn
The first critical learning you must acquire is learning to learn; that is, applying yourself to learn. To learn itself requires learning and it is one of the most difficult things for many people to do. Now, there are five personalities that we can learn from.
(a) Learning from a senior: The senior is the person that everybody obviously wants to learn from, somebody obviously superior to you. Many times, God will place a man ahead of you and demand that you learn from that person. You will do yourself a lot of good if you pay attention to the things that God wants you to learn from such people. When you learn from experience, you are learning from your own accidents, pains and losses but when you learn from instruction, you are learning from the wisdom of others. When you have a senior ahead of you in whatever field of life you are functioning, it is wisdom for you to learn from them and tap from their wealth of experience which they will be communicating to you through instructions.
Paul wrote to the Philippian church in Philippians 4:9, He says, “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you”. This shows that the Philippian church learnt from Paul the Apostle. Make good use of the opportunity you have and learn from any senior that is ahead of you in any area where God has placed you.
