Not Knowing: uncertainty is your opportunity

We all like knowing things! That feeling we get when we know the most about a subject in a room full of people. This temptation is enticing, it makes you feel good. There is nothing wrong with a desire to know and control your environment.

That temptation is hurting you, it’s at least holding you back. It gets in the way of trying new things, and growing as a person. This is more about ego than an honest sincere respect for knowledge.

Being able to embrace not knowing is important. The more we can admit we don’t know, the easier to learn from it. Being comfortable feeling uncomfortable, content with feeling discontent. This is the surest way to keep growing.
