Master the Art of Learning, Earning and Serving

Master the Art of Learning, Earning and Serving

If I had to pick one piece of advice to give you about making money and being fulfilled, this brand new week it would be. “Master the Art of Learning, Earning and Serving”

You see…

…Chasing the money will never make you rich.

…Working 60, 70, even 80 hours a week alone will never make you rich.

…Sitting around and manifesting success will never make you rich.

However, taking deliberate, purposeful, goal-directed action is what makes you rich: rich with inner fulfillment, rich with joy and happiness.

Not to mention, it makes you rich monetarily as well.

Today, we are going to discuss three easy steps that you can follow to finally obtain the health, wealth and happiness you have been searching for.


We have all heard the old adage that bad things happen in three’s.

We have all known that one person, who lost their job, got a divorce and had a car accident within a short period of time…

Or the friend who failed her law exam, found out she contracted Lyme disease, and also had a flat tire all in the same day.

Today, I am here to tell you that GREAT things happen in three’s all the time, as well.

Perhaps we are just too busy to notice…

But, the bottom-line is, when you live your life with purpose and intent, you will notice because the results are too profound to miss.

And, what will help you achieve all your dreams, goals and desires is dividing your life (and your time) into the “The Perfect Three.” Which I like to call The Art of Learning, Earning and Serving!

Like all great concepts, this one is very easy to understand and simple to execute.

The concept of “Learning, Earning and Serving” is simply dividing your time into those three categories.

This means that 33 percent of your time is spent learning, 33 percent of your time is spent earning and 33 percent of your time is spent serving.


When was the last time you learned something new?

I mean brand new.

So many of us are consumed with our businesses and family that we stop the learning process.

The lack of learning is so bad for our business, our families and our mental health.

It has been proven over and over again.

When you stop learning you make less money, you become less interesting & your health suffers.

Think back to the last time that you learned something brand new. How did you feel?

You most likely had a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment, pretty darn close to euphoric.

And, you shared that pride with your colleagues, friends, kids, and spouse.

When we talk about learning, I am referring to learning anything.


We have all been there. Thinking that working like a dog will make us rich and happy.

Well, how’s that working out for you?

The reason working countless hours doesn’t work is because you burn out; plain and simple.

And, once you burn out, you become resentful.

Once you become resentful, no one wants to be around you and you end up hating what you are doing.

And if you hate what you do, your customers will notice it, not to mention your colleagues and employees. At this point you can never be successful and happy.

But, if you limited your work to 33 percent instead of 50, 75 or even 100 percent of your time, you work smarter and more efficiently.

This also leaves you the time for the two other important categories mentioned, learning and serving.

And, because you are learning and serving, your endorphins are flowing; making it easier to get the job done.


Call this category whatever you want – serving, giving, volunteering, it does not matter as long as this is the selfless you.

Once you make this a CONSCIOUS part of your being, your entire attitude would be changed.

Gary Ryan Blair once said this

The things I used to get upset about seemed silly. The materialist items in my life became less important in my life and my family’s life.

Once I went far beyond the Thanksgiving food drive and the Christmas clothes drive and really started giving and sharing my time, talents, resources and contacts, I became a much happier self; a person I am proud to be.

Plus, study after study has shown that random acts of kindness have an intense effect on your well-being.

This includes everything from your productivity to limiting your stress levels.

At first, it may be hard to divide your time equally among the three and that’s ok.

But, I promise you, the sooner you get to the 33/33/33 you will see a difference in your life and your family’s life for the better!

Question of the Day ?

I would love to know how you can implement this Learning, Earning and Serving philosophy to your life.

Thanks for your attention and please enjoy your day
