“Education is the most important weapon, which can be used to change the world”. Such a wonderful quote by the famous personality Sir. Nelson Mandela, it says a lot even before trying to understand it completely. If we can focus more on to it, there won’t be any hatred and wars going around.
First let me clear the difference between knowledge and education, education is something that we learn from our schools, colleges, or any other teaching centre, where as knowledge can be learned and also earned throughout life. We can earn knowledge from various ways like learning, observing, experiencing, practising, and many more. To earn knowledge you don’t need a particular way, it has its own way to reach everyone. Some preach to spread knowledge where as some discuss. Most of the time knowledge is earned by a person through his own life experiences.
There is no particular age limit to learn something new, we can keep learning till end and keep earning the knowledge. We learn something to get the knowledge out of it and not to boost the ego to show superiority in front of others. Respect the knowledge, it will take you to a level ahead in your life. Never limit yourself with what you have, the more you discuss the more you earn. This will only help you to get more and more about different things. You are always surrounded by a group of people, friends or whatsoever, they may or may not be of same educational background or traditional or work as of you, they will be aware of something that you may not know or you may have something good to share which they think might help and this is possible is you start conversation and discuss amongst yourself. This will make everyone to share what they know and also learn new things at the same time.
Elderly are always treated as people of high knowledge or wise people even though they don’t acquire a degree and the reason is the experience and knowledge about most of the things they have come through their life, our own parents will have so much to share about different things which they used to see in a different way as compared to that of the world it sees now. Discussing with them will help us learn something new, it may be your own tradition or way of living, art of living and so on, start now.
Earlier days people used to keep discussing when they had time in the evening after their work which made them to keep everyone together and help others whenever required, they used to have knowledge of almost everything like work, medicine, life. Today’s generation is just on to the social media posting some stuff which may or may not be relevant to others. Social media is also a way to learn new things only if used in a proper way. You may know something good, share that in social media and make everyone aware of that, this will also help keep people in touch even in this pandemic which is keeping us apart.
Sharing knowledge will never make you poor instead it will make you wise, never be selfish to keep the things with you or greedy just to learn as much and not to share, sharing is caring. The process of learning never stops and that doesn’t mean you will put a limit to yourself. A person with different options of answering a question will have better way of living than just following one single rule. You may have one particular way of approach to problems, your friend may have some other way, never criticise others for doing it wrong if they choose to do differently, at least they are trying something new, may be it will lead to something better. Grab all the knowledge that is available at your footsteps and never leave anything behind.
If you are restricting yourself from learning ahead or not ready to know something new, there are very less chance that you may reach your goal in a short time. If you are open to what ever new things are coming to you, you will have a wide range of varieties to use and will excel in short period of time.
One important thing is to admire those who point out your mistakes and problems. These are not your enemies instead they are helping you to improve more the next time. The way of communicating may vary, but never let yourself down but over come those problems and shine brighter the next time. These people who point out your mistakes may have some other way of approaching or may have new ideas to share, go through it and feel free to use, this will make you better as you are gaining more and more.
The reason to discuss and learn more is to make yourself better and help others to improve themselves. It always come back to helping others as this will make you more selfless and be more interactive and open to everyone. The more you learn and share, the world will become more wise and people will behave well with others, the way of living may change to some, at last the world will become more peaceful. Learn more share more.
