“Real knowledge‚ like everything else of value‚ is not to be obtained easily It must be worked for‚ studied for‚ thought for and more than all‚ must be prayed for”
The Native American Saying goes that “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me‚ and I may not remember‚ Involve me‚ and I’ll understand”. This is more relevant in the present day academic and professional world, where the student should not be a mere blind receiver of lessons‚ but also have the power and ability to critically examine them in the light of facts and situation‚ leading to creativity‚ success and a sense of fulfillment. Plutarch had rightly remarked long ago “A mind is a fire to be kindled‚ not a vessel to be filled”.
Over the years, I have learned this: You can’t hit a target you can’t see. You can’t accomplish wonderful things with your life if you have no idea of what they are. You must first become absolutely clear about what you want if you are serious about the unlocking the extraordinary power that lies within you. Every success comes after you have taken the time to think through what your goal would look like when it is accomplished.
