Discovery is important for people that are on the road to intentional growth. It is accepting constructive criticism and applying a different perception that may help your condition. The world is changing so fast nowadays. There are a lot of discoveries in many aspects of life during a short time. The one who wants to gain more control over his life needs to be updated always.
The greatest among you must be like a child.
The key to learning is finding out more about what you don’t know and making a commitment daily to learn, grow, meet people and keep learning. Jesus Christ one day heard His disciples arguing among themselves about who was the greatest among them. Upon hearing them, he called them and said this to them, “The greatest among you must be like a child.”
By saying this, what He meant was not for one to possess the spirit of a child but gave us one of the key principles and advice you do not have to forget from today. To become a person of discovery, one must have the mindset of a child.
When you were a child, you honestly thought your dad was the richest man on earth. You believed that whatever you wanted, he would buy for you. Today I am a dad and I see the same thing in the eyes and mind of my children. Sometimes I do not have the means but when I see their level of confidence and belief in me, I try hard never to disappoint them.
The more that you know, the more that you know that you don’t know and the more that you know that you don’t know, the more that you know that you want to know.
This is the mindset we ought to have; to see opportunities and think without limits. One that seeks to discover and agrees that I don’t know it all but willing to learn and improve. It was John Maxwell that said, “The more that you know, the more that you know that you don’t know and the more that you know that you don’t know, the more that you know that you want to know.”
In other words, to influence others, you must become a person of discovery. Everything that makes or will make mankind great is covered. For anyone to ever dream of becoming great requires you to uncover what is covered. Greatness is not hidden from you but for you and it is only people of discovery who find it and move forward to maximise it.
Greatness is not hidden from you but for you and it is only people of discovery who find it and move forward to maximise it.
Make a choice today to become a person of discovery. Drink from good books, learn from others but don’t become them. Become who you are created to be because you are unique and special. No matter who you want to become today or in the future, it begins with this simple yet powerful principle; become a person of discovery.
