Are you a Millennial or parent of a Millennial? In today's show we talk, personal growth, with the author of the Millennial's Playbook to Adulting, Ms Arika Pierce

Show Transcript:

Today what we want to focus on is giving Millennial's some clarity on, personal growth, and development. We both know that learning should not stop when you leave school.

What advice would you give Millennials to keep growing? Millennials are in the growth stage of life, what advice would you give them? I know in your book you touch on quite a few, let me count them one two three four you know you've got a bit of a ten tips. We don't have time to talk about all the ten, but pick some of the top ones and share how you would advise Millennials to keep growing.

I think especially after you get out of school and Millennials, are sort of over trying to learn from textbooks, people are just exhausted from that textbook and learning from your professors and things like that; but I do encourage Millennials to become students of life. By that I mean opening your eyes to all the things that you can learn from different people, new experiences just being open to continuing to stretch your horizon and to be multifaceted and to be just a well-rounded person. In my book, for example, I suggest things such as reading biographies about people that you're curious about or maybe who you want to know. Learn more about their path. I also believe that you should do things like watch documentaries on Netflix about different types of topics that you might be interested in or just want to know more about. I also think listening to podcast that's huge for me and so that's why I love your podcast. I listen to podcast really throughout my day on various types of topics, it could be something around expanding your mindset, it could be something around the news, it could be anything. There's so much out there that you can really stretch your mind and learn. Going to different types of events. I always tell people if you get invited, go to something and especially if it's something that you probably would be interested in doing. Go to the Opera, go to a hockey game even though you don't know what's going on, go to a book talk, go to a wine tasting, whatever it is just expand your horizon. Learning does not stop once you walk across the stage. You should always every day be learning more about yourself, about life, about other people, just always be curious and be a student of the world and of life.

Awesome, that's some good advice I love the podcast one because that's a big one. I actually showed my mom just yesterday how to put podcasts on her phone.

That's the space that we're in right now. I will tell you I started listening to podcast just to learn what some of the successful podcasters are doing. If there's something you want to learn, you go to an event, you go to book signing. That's why people write books. You can take ten years to learn something or you can take ten minutes to read how someone else did it in a book, and that's the purpose of books. Because I want to learn how to be better at what I do, I start listening to podcast, you would not believe how my mind has been expanded. I subscribe to TuneIn radio, so that I can research how that works and what Hot Talk radio was all about. I happened to come across the Hay House World Summit podcast and you would not believe what I've been learning. I listen to podcasts every morning when I walk. I walk for an hour every day so I that's my learning time and I my eyes are wide open because this podcast have guest speakers all the top people in the spirituality and consciousness and health space.

I try to bring good content on this show so that people can plug in and hear something inspiring and mindset shifting. This podcast is not all about shooting the breeze...
