Extraordinary people seek education and learning.” -Benjamin Hardy 1:18 - The Quality of Your Learning Determines the Quality of Your Success “Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” -Hal Elrod 2:59 - We Attract the Things That Reflect Who We Are “Every next level of your life will demand a different you.” -Leonardo DiCaprio 4:59 - Step Forward Into Growth or Backwards Into Security “It’s absurd that we would prioritize the hottest new device, the cool car, or trendy toy over owning that which makes us feel the most engaged and most alive.” -Neil Patel 6:43 - Most People Won’t Ever Experience True Success “The mediocre have a very narrow perception of reality, and in turn, their lives.

Focus On Learning and Creating Rather Than Entertainment and Distraction
“Ordinary people seek entertainment. Extraordinary people seek education and learning.” -Benjamin Hardy
"Most people are distracted right now.
They’re distracted while they’re at work. They’re distracted when they’re with family and friends.
They’re distracted at the gym, on their commute, and even in the shower.
The mediocre majority will continue going through life this way, never experiencing the fullness of a life filled with deep focus and purpose.
Most people don’t prioritize learning and creating. They don’t care enough about any efforts to invest in their personal development and growth.
Entertainment is more important. Most people have replaced achieving their life dreams and goals with TV, partying, and social media.
Their life is characterized by entertainment and distraction, not learning and creating.
As a result, they don’t have close relationships. They’re stuck in jobs they hate. Their life is on the fast-track to disappointment, and they don’t know what to do.
Benjamin Hardy once said, “Entertainment and distraction is the enemy of creation and learning. They will keep you in mediocrity.”
If you don’t want to end up living a life of mediocrity, focus on learning and education. It’s the fastest way to become extraordinary, wealthy, and successful.." from the article: Focus On Learning and Creating Rather Than Entertainment and Distraction
