ALERT: 7 Lessons To Learn From Children
I was reading answers to a question on Quora when I discovered this. considering it to be useful to all I felt like sharing Big Grin

Ashwani JP Singh on Quora Wrote:
Lessons you can learn from kids that
will make you a more successful adult
If you arrived at your office
tomorrow wearing "Frozen"-themed
footie pajamas, you'd likely get some
bewildered stares, and might even
get sent home to change.
But there are certain times when it's
OK - even wise - to act like a child.
Kids often know better than grown-
ups how to learn quickly and form
meaningful relationships.
To learn how to embrace our inner
child, we checked out the Quora
thread, " What can adults learn from
children? " and highlighted the most
insightful responses. Read on to find
out what your past self can teach
your present one.
1. It's OK to ask for help.
"When you're a kid, your entire life
depends on the support and the help
of your parents. Without them we
would be nothing," saysQuora user
Yann Girard. "Unfortunately, along
the way of growing up we somehow
lose the capability of being able to
accept any sort of help."
That's unfortunate, because
research suggests that asking for
advice can make you seem more
competent and can flatter the person
whose counsel you're seeking.
2. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable
will help you make friends.
Eva Glasrud cites a blog post she
wrote about why kids make friends
more easily than adults.
Scientists say one of the things that
facilitates the formation of
friendships is an environment that
encourages people to open up to each
other. Because kids are generally
more willing to self-disclose than
adults (in any environment), they
form close relationships quickly.
3. It's important to acknowledge your
"We bottle up our emotions because
we don't want others to think badly
of us," says Simranjeett Singh.
"However, children don't act that
way. They acknowledge and let out
their emotions. Children will let you
know when they are hurt, confused,
angry, sad, or happy."
It isn't always easy to come to terms
with - or even identify - what you're
feeling, especially if it's intense or
painful. But accepting your emotions
is just as important as accepting
other people's emotions, psychologist
Karyn Hall, Ph.D., writes on
Psychology Today.
4. You don't know everything.
Preeti Pillai advocates being curious
and asking simple questions, just like
kids do.
"With the accumulation of
educational degrees and more
passing time we often get the feeling
that we have the answer to
everything," Pillai says. "We are so,
so wrong!"
Beyond seeming humble, curiosity
has myriad benefits . For example,
it strengthens your personal
relationships because you spend time
listening, and it boosts your
performance at work because you
always want to learn and improve.
5. You can try new experiences before
you're fully prepared.
Kids don't wait until science suggests
they're ready to remove the training
wheels on their bike - they just hop
on and see what happens.
Writes Sunanda Guha:
Despite the fact that they are
cognitively, developmentally and even
physically unprepared for most of what
the world has to offer, children are the
masters of jumping feet-first into
unknown waters. They aren't worried
about meeting the pre-requisites for
new activities. They say 'yes' first and
then figure the rest out as they go. It's
a strategy us security-obsessed adults
could learn a little something from.
Kids are living proof that we don't
always have to be fully prepared in
order to move forwards.
6. There's a whole world out there to
Kids are keen observers of
everything around them, writes
Sharmistha Das:
"Go for a walk with a kid and do the
same with [an] adult ... use the same
route. You will be surprised at the
different things you end up noticing
and explaining about when you are
with [a] kid. Age tends to make us
oblivious to nature."
Observing is a key skill of
innovators , according to the
authors of " The Innovator's DNA ."
Watching people's everyday behavior
can help you figure out the solutions
to problems you or your organization
are facing.
7. Unfamiliar people and ideas aren't
Amigo Oak notes that kids often
demonstrate acceptance without
As we grow we let our experiences
cloud our innermost desire to explore
and be curious of things that are
totally alien to our minds. We are
scared of change and our mind is
suspicious of anything that is new or
against what we believe. Having
beliefs is a part of growing up and it
is a good thing, however, completely
losing the ability to boldly embrace a
new idea or something we do not
know, without being prejudiced is a
huge price to pay.
