In nature "Nothing is constant but change".
The one that brings positive changes in humans is learning.
Learning is a change in behaviour on the basis of past experience. If you have positively changed yourself, you have learnt, otherwise you have learnt nothing. So be in accordance with the nature and go on changing yourself by continuous learning.
