People who are in tune with the times are usually people who keep an open mind. They are open to new ideas, information and discoveries. If you shut your mind from accessing new facts that would enable you to widen your horizon, you will keep recycling same old information that may not get you on the frontline. The world is revolving.

It is said that little knowledge is a dangerous thing. If you think you know much while it turns up that your knowledge does not make the grade or is probably nowhere near what could get you profiled for excellence, then you can’t afford to be resistant to new methods and approaches for achieving top notch results.

Soonest, you will become a mine of information and a resourceful person as you begin to keep an open mind in Jesus name.
