When it comes to learning subjects and topics, we normally first think about subjects we learn in school like math, English, or history.
Or we think about subjects that can advance our careers like engineering, search engine optimization,
Or even fun new hobbies like acting, drawing, skiing or tennis.
But what if we can learn about subjects that will dramatically impact our lives and that we will actually use 10+ years down the road.
These three subjects are sometimes worked on and set goals for, but many of us don’t look at them as things to be learned.
There is a science to these three things which means that these things can be learned.
These are things that everyone should learn about. They are probably more important and useful to our lives than many of the stuff we learn in school.
Learning about these three things that everyone should learn about can allow us to live happier and more successful and fulfilling lives.
Psychology & Relationships
Success in relationships is essential to our wellbeing and happiness. In fact, according to new studies your relationships and circle of friends and people is a major indicator and predictor of your health and wellness.
Not only that, love and relationships is the biggest indicator of living a happy life. Even just being in search of love, attempting to have fulfilling relationships is essential to living a happy life according to a famed 80-year Harvard study.
This is the secret to happiness.
Most of us, though, will take a psychology 101 class or intro to psychology in high school or college, but not delve much deeper than that unless they’re planning on becoming a psychologist or something similar in that field.
Most people also rarely pick up a book on improving relationships, instead mostly going for the confidence or motivation or success books.
The reasons being are that…
- It’s hard to measure results in relationships
- People settle because they’re “good” with their relationships or social skills (but in reality, what’s toxic can seem normal to us if we don’t know better)
- People will ignore and turn a blind eye to their relationships
- They have tunnel vision on their career
Learning about relationships and psychology can not only improve personal relationships, but improve work, business and career relationships as well.
Not learning about psychology and relationships limits us in all areas of life.
Learning about psychology not only teaches you about others and improving the quality of your relationships, but it also help you learn about yourself and discover yourself. You improve the relationship with yourself as well, which is most important of all relationships.
It helps us understand better how the world works essentially.
Learning about relationships and psychology can include a wide range of skills and topics including communication skills, empathy, emotional intelligence, writing skills, speaking skills, listening skills, marketing and sales, conflict resolution, etc.
Money & Finance
Personal finance is a skill that everyone should learn. It’s something that should be taught in school.
Most people never learn how to manage their money even though money and finance are things that everyone uses quite often. It’s nearly impossible to live without in this day and age.
Essentially, this skill is necessary for our survival, success, and wellbeing.
Most people have money and finance goals especially if they relate to our careers and business. Not only that, most people prioritize these goals. Yet few people actually spend time learning and mastering their money and finances.
They just set the goal in their head or write it down, sometimes making a plan intending to work hard towards that and that’s usually pretty much it. There’s little plan or intention for education, growth and advancement.
A lot of finance also delves into money mindsets and beliefs. You can also learn about economics, marketing, and entrepreneurship within the topic of money which is extremely important for making money.
Learning about finance doesn’t just improve your life in the meantime. It sets you up for the future. When you learn about it, it sets you up for future you.
Money might not necessarily makes us happy, but it does give us the ability improve our lives and live better lives. And learning about money and finance might not solve not all your problems, but a lot of problems, especially money problems.
The better relationship we have with money, the less stress and money problems we have, the more opportunities we have, the better lives we live.
With the skill of personal finance, you learn how to budget, save, invest, spend, and manage your money. And of course, making money
Health & wellness
Learning how to take care of ourselves is essential to living a happy fulfilling longer life.
Why we should focus and work on our health and wellness is pretty self-explanatory.
One of the problems is that many people wait until they have health problems to start working on their health. Some people also have the impression that fitness and health is a waste of time if they think they look good, are already skinny. I used to think this way.
Even people who do focus on their health and wellness limit themselves by not learning about health and wellness.
Most people just start by buying a gym membership or buying weights and equipment for home fitness without any real intention, purpose, plan, or education.
Some people also set vague goals with no real clarity or vision. Or they won’t set any goals at all!
And then others will also buy into the next fad, whether it be exercise program or diet system. Any lose-weight quick scheme, which unsurprisingly can often be not very healthy.
Many people also often only listen to one opinion when it comes to their health.
Learning about health and wellness can help people make better decision for themselves and live better, happier, longer lives.
These are the three main foundations that contribute so someone’s overall wellness and happiness. It’s time to start intentionally and actively start learning and educating ourselves on these three topics rather than just blindly jumping into them or not working on them at all.
We don’t know what we don’t know. We don’t what information we don’t have that can make us richer, healthier, and happier. Mastering these three subjects and topics can help you lead happier and more fulfilling lives.
