Gain new knowledge, open YOUR mind and embracing change. The key that unlocks the door, shapes our behavior and personality - Dan Trepanier

 

Question Everything for NEW Knowledge

If nobody had ever questioned anything, the world wouldn't have progressed much. And we would probably still think the Earth is flat.

 

Knowledge is the key that unlocks the door to a new, better world. It's the key to evolution. Those are big words, I know, but I'm not using them lightly. You see, to gain new knowledge means to ask questions. It means keeping an open mind and embracing change. Just because something has been done a certain way for a long time doesn't make it right. Just think about it for a second. We make crucial decisions based on the information that comes before us. We let it shape our behavior, our personality, and ultimately our lives. You can see why it is paramount to question everything.

 

  1. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
  2. New Knowledge, New You
  3. There's Always a Way to Gain New Knowledge

 

The Bottom Line

At the end of the day, the only sure way to get the right answers is to ask the RIGHT questions for new knowledge.

1. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Sure, it's always easier and more comfortable to take things as they are. Doing nothing requires no effort, but it also has no impact.

Stepping out of your comfort zone, on the other hand, means overcoming your limits. Remember that, more often than not, limits are inflicted by fear.

  • Fear of being ridiculed for your beliefs
  • Fear of change
  • Fear of  being wrong

Anxiety is what causes many people to stay in their safe bubble with their mouths shut. You shouldn't accept others interpretation of the truth as your own out of fear.

There are always two sides of the same story, so it's important to look at the whole picture before accepting something as being true.

I don't have to tell you the LGBTQ community is still affected by individuals who are trying to inflict their personal beliefs upon others.

2. New Knowledge, New You

Questioning everything is not only a way to expand your view of the world and acquire new skills. It is also a form of self-expression. It's a way of making your voice heard while staying true to who you are.

Knowledge is what fuels your growth. It's what shapes you as an individual, which is why you should consistently look for answers.

Make "How?" and "Why?" a part of your day-to-day vocabulary and you'll be able to see improvements in all areas of your life.

3. There's Always a Way to Gain New Knowledge

Learning opportunities are everywhere. You may find them in places you never expected.  Search for them, seize them and then try to pass that knowledge further. It's how you inspire others to be better as well.

Once you get into the habit of learning and developing healthy rituals, it will be much easier to gain new knowledge and overcome your problems.

You can start by setting some time aside each morning to expand your knowledge base on a topic that interests you.

I also encourage you to spend some time during the early hours of the day thinking about important aspects of your life. Assessing your life on a regular basis can offer you a fresh perspective and help you make the best decisions to support your goals for the future.

My advice is to use doubt in your journey to gain new knowledge. Have the confidence to question convention, and know there's always a better way.
