52 Proven Strategies That Will Position You to Excel as an Immigrant: # 4 Be a Student

"Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.” —C.S. Lewis

When you stop learning, you stop growing.

As an immigrant, you have been thrust into a new environment and have a lot of learning to do. If you do not keep learning, you will not grow and will not reach your full potential. Nobody captures this more than Henry Doherty, a successful American businessman who held close to 140 individual patents and founded the Cities Service Company in 1910, which later became CITGO in 1965, and eventually, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. in 1990.

Henry Doherty said, “Be a student as long as you still have something to learn and this will mean all your life.”

To be a student for the whole of your life will require you maintaining humility and an open mind, without which you will not be a good student.

Mahatma Gandhi states, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

The willingness to learn and to remain a student will not come naturally; you have to cultivate it if you have not already done so.

The most successful immigrants are those who have made learning daily a part of their lives. When you meet immigrants who are lifelong students, they are positive, appreciative, and fun to hang around with.
