    Q1. Write a paragraph of about 100 words on any ONE of the given topics. (10)

    Learning is the acquisition of knowledge or skill through education and experience. Our ability to learn and our intellectual capacity are intangibles. However, these intangibles are your greatest assets because everything you do to reinvent and update your knowledge allows you to grow from where you are today to where you want to go. Learning is a prerequisite to growth.
    Recognize that lifelong learning is a journey with no end in sight and that no one can ever have all the answers. We must have the humility or willingness to learn from others. In other words, learn from the experts. We will never live long enough to learn it all on our own.



    (OR)

    Failure is success if we learn from it.



    it is a material principle that failure is the pillar of success, but it can also be applied to our spiritual lives. One very famous speaker has said, "Success is going from failure to failure to failure, without losing enthusiasm." We really never fail until we give up trying - trying with determination and with enthusiasm. Vision means to see the invisible, to feel the intangible and to achieve the impossible.
    Actually, challenges or failures can either be stepping stones or stumbling blocks on the road to success. It is all a matter of how we look at it. You can see a glass as half empty, or you can see the same glass as half full. One will bring you enthusiasm while the other will bring you discouragement. We can apply that principle to every aspect of our life. But it is always important to be sure that we are doing the right thing.
    We learn from our mistakes. A mistake is only a mistake if we fail to learn from it. Real leaders make many, many mistakes, but they do not repeat them. They learn from them, they remain enthusiastic, and they remain determined for the goal. Actual champions in every situation are always focused on their goals.
