The Oxford Dictionary defines learning as "To acquire or attempt to acquire knowledge or an ability to do something." Learning also is defined as "Accumulated knowledge." This means a collection of knowledge.

A child's stages of development and growth start with learning. He or she learned how to crawl, stand, and then walk. Their first words or speech are born out of learning.
Learning is the most important aspect of growth. Learning can be produced from anything, and it has no end. A writer put it this way: "We are a totality of what we have learned from all who taught us, both great and small."

The reason we have those who have gone before us in that field (that is, career, skills, or study) is for us to learn from them.
For example, a writer must first learn from other writers by reading their content. Before he or she finds a niche, there is an opportunity to explore every style of writing.

In the process of exploring, the learning mode is activated. You learn and unlearn. You learn from their experiences, mistakes, and successes. Every success story has a process, and you can enter into this process by learning.

A gospel musician's success will not just depend on his or her ability. With prayers and learning from other gospel musicians, he or she can be better at singing.
It's good to be able to write your own songs, but it's also good to learn songs from other gospel musicians. Study those things that make people love them. Find out the things that make them stand out.

In addition to this, when you learn from their good parts, you also get to see where they got it wrong. The things they've done wrong and the actions they took that had a negative impact on what they represent.
You learn from their mistakes so as not to have a repeat from your end, and you learn from the part that makes them stand out so that you can be exceptional.

The change you desire can only begin when you finally decide to embrace learning. You don't have to struggle to stand when you have the opportunity to watch others get up.
Sometimes, when we remember the mistakes we've made in the past, we tend to become embarrassed by them. But if we look away from the side of embarrassment and focus on the things we've learned from those experiences, we would be grateful for the process of learning.

As youths, there are mistakes that we will make, and there are lessons to learn from each mistake.  If we are determined to learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others, it will lessen our ability to make more mistakes and increase our ability to be better.

There is a reason why we have the Bible, and there is a reason why stories were written. There is a reason why both sides of the story were written for us to read. It's for us to learn from them and also apply them.

Solomon's story would have ended when he became king. However, the Bible went further to disclose what happened when he did not have to fight battles like his father. He had rest on all sides. But the rest became his undoing; he gathered many wives that led him astray because he did not have to fight battles.

Emphasis would have been placed only on Samson's status as a strong man with the spirit of God. But the Bible also shows us how a strong man can be defeated. Stories like these and lots more were written for us to learn from them.

The reason why the Bible reveals the good and bad sides of each story is for us to learn from them. If we do our part to gain knowledge, the Holy Ghost will enlighten our minds, give us directions, and add light to our learning.

"If you stop learning, you will forget what you already know." Proverbs 19:27 CEV

"A wise man will hear and increase in learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel," Proverbs 1:5 NKJV.

"Take learning in your hands; do not let her go; keep her, for she is your life." Proverbs 4:13 BBE

"For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we, through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures, might have hope." Romans 15:4 NKJV

"The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:9 NKJV
