In today’s time, there are so many ways through which you can gain knowledge. I always believe in the concept of gaining different kinds of specialized wisdom. And if you are thinking that due to coronavirus it’s difficult to join any offline classes and it is impossible to learn any new skills then you are thinking absolutely wrong.
I am going to share at least six different ways through which you can gain knowledge. Out of these six methods, five platforms are those which you can access from home and learn as much as possible. You just need a laptop and internet connection. So, let’s get started.
Look For Mentors
First and the foremost way through which you can gain knowledge is by the help of a coach or mentor. Yes, if you really want to succeed in life then you need a guru in your life.
You have to understand that a guru can only transfer the knowledge. But to become successful you have to implement and take massive action. And if you look into the history of any individual they are successful because they got the right mentor in their life.
In the same way, you have to search, learn and implement but remember after theoretical class start taking action. Now you can learn almost everything online and I have even seen people teaching how to start farming from home through online. You just need to find out the right mentor and online or office it doesn’t matter.
The second best way to gain any knowledge is by reading books. Yes, books are considered as the best friends humans can have. They don’t cheat nor they lie but just share their wisdom.
Many successful people became wealthy because of their habits of reading books. Both Bill Gates and Warren Buffett even every day still read books. They consider reading as the best and most productive habit they have to build.
There are so many benefits of reading books which include gaining knowledge, spending quality time, increase vocabulary and reduces stress etc. So, read books related to different topics to gain maximum knowledge.
By Attending Webinar
Another best method is by attending a webinar. Webinars are simply a combination of the web (internet) + seminar, which means doing seminars by using the internet.
In the past, I have attended many webinars to gain different kinds of knowledge. In this, you simply have to sit in front of your laptop and join the webinar platforms like Zoom or Webinarninja or YouTube or Facebook Live etc.
There are many webinars which are free of cost. Many digital marketers use the webinar as a funnel to reach out to their prospective customers to sell their course online.
One of the best ways to gain systematic knowledge is through by taking some online course. And now due to pandemic, there has been a surge in the number of online courses.
If you look and select online course carefully then definitely you can learn many things. I have personally learned many things online with the help of such courses. And now almost any course is available at a very reasonable price. Another best part is you can learn by sitting at the comfort of your home and as per your time and schedule. So, if you want to learn and progress in life then definitely take some online course.
Blogs And YouTube Channels
Another the best way to gain knowledge is to subscribe to some related blogs or YouTube channels. Yes, there are millions of blogs and channels and unlimited contents online.
Now you are in a position to learn many things for free. I have learned how to design a blog, whiteboard animation, who to use audacity and many SEO techniques by reading blogs and by using YouTube channels.
If someone really wanted to learn any topic then first he should search on YouTube or read some related blogs. Of course, these are time-consuming ways but if you are serious then definitely you will going to read blogs and watch YouTube channels.
Now if you like to listen and gain some knowledge then definitely listening to the podcast is the best way to go with. A podcast is simply a blog in the audio format. In this, you can only hear the content. The podcast is widely popular in the USA, Canada and European countries.
They are slowly gaining popularity in India. And just like we have different blogs and YouTube channels on different niche, the same way we have different podcast channels catering to different niches and languages. One of the most important aspects of the podcast is a listener can do other works while listening to the podcast and right now they are free.
I personally use blogs, youtube channels, reading books and an online course as my main sources of gaining different knowledge. And after I learn those things I try to implement. I have taken many online courses and now have slowly started taking massive actions as I know learning is of no use without implementation.
