When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. – Walt Disney
What do you think is the biggest skill one must have? One skill to succeed in life? One skill to gain happiness in life?
That one skill, you may have known by now, is curiosity. A sense of exploration. To skim through and to deep dive on anything that may interest you. You can have just a brief knowledge of a broad range of subjects by skimming through. Or you could go all out in a particular topics, making you an expert in the process.
If you would show interest, people would be willing to teach you. They feel appreciated. They feel valued.
If you would be curious, you would put in effort. You are focused. And your learning will be a more enjoyable journey.
If you are curious, you would learn more than other people. You will know much more things than you would be settling for. You could be a walking encyclopedia.
Curiosity is a skill. A skill that can be learnt. If only you would pay more attention to your surrounding. If you would just ask one more question. If you would just smile and look at it objectively. Nothing would stop you from being curious.
Curiosity kills the cat. That’s one popular sayings. All it meant is that we don’t delve into matters that are dangerous, like taking drugs. But we should be curious on other things that are wonderful, that would promote our growth, that is essential in our journey to become a useful person.
Stay curious and let your learning journey begins.
