Obstacle 51: Ignorance

Ignorance ignores intelligence.  It jades success. Those who stagnate and refuse to learn or adapt to progress do not succeed.

“Not to know is bad, not to wish to know is worse.”

~Nigerian Proverb

Disraeli says, ” Ignorance never settles a question.” Ignorance is distinct from being uneducated. Throughout history uneducated (in the formal sense) people have commanded armies, led slaves to freedom, written classical works of art or designed complex projects or even written obtuse mathematical formulas.

Thus, a lack of  formal education is not an excuse to stalemate, thinking you have little to offer.  If you want to increase your learning, enroll in distance learning classes or night school, read voraciously, think creatively, paint through your soul.

Do what you need to do to increase your exposure and intelligence.  Find a mentor. Ask questions and study. Illumine your mind.

Ignorance is not a virtue.

Opportunity Step:  Study new topics on the internet today.
