Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that knowing really is half of the battle. I do not know about you, but I have noticed that many people in the world today appear to be content with solely relying on the knowledge of others rather than taking the time to educate themselves. This lack of desire to educate themselves leaves them at a severe disadvantage as they attempt to navigate the challenges of life. And not only is this disturbing trend affecting their lives, but it is also creating a devastating and disabling legacy that is being passed on to successive generations, generations who do not seem to realize that in order to thrive in this life one must be educated.
Now, that’s not to say that everyone has to go to college and attend Ivy League schools. We all have our own paths to take in life. But whichever path we choose, we need to actively pursue education, so that we do not find ourselves relegated to relying on the opinions and extrapolations of others, which are often biased and ever-changing, as are the often misguided whims of human beings. We need to learn and discover things for ourselves so that when we are faced with opportunities to better this world our preparation will usher us through to success. #lovebythedrop
