When you come, be sure to bring the coat I left with Carpus at Troas. Also bring my books, and especially my papers. - 2 Tim. 4:13

John Maxwell shared this perspective, "We all begin our lives as empty notebooks. Every day we have an opportunity to record new experiences on our pages. With the turning of each page, we gain more knowledge and understanding". Appropriating every opportunity to grow your knowledge base helps to erode your ignorance and takes you a cut above average. One of the reasons why some people are below the curve is because they fail to abandon themselves to personal development. Hence, if you want to get ahead and stay ahead, you need to make a practice of broadening your perspective. When you cultivate an appetite for knowledge, you undercut your vulnerability to failure, confusion and deception.

If your appetite for knowledge is often at the mercy of fluctuations of your emotion, you are unlikely to make a practice of building a strong knowledge base. A student who chooses to cram for an examination at the eleventh hour is merely treating failure as a welcome guest. When your feeling doesn't always harmonise with opportunities to broaden your horizon, your feeling will certainly upset your chance of success.

It bears mentioning that those who cultivate a taste for knowledge do not allow their feelings to dictate their appetite. Being addicted to a life of study, they play down circumstances which may stifle their commitment to learning. Apostle Paul didn't allow his imprisonment by the Roman government to chill his appetite for study. His persistent commitment to enrich his knowledge of God illuminated his spirit man with the divine secrets and revelation that cannot be accessed by those without a hunger for God. If you aren't cultivating a strong appetite for knowledge, your conquest of ignorance is certainly unattainable. Today, identify what may be deflecting you away from enriching yourself mentally while you resolve to keep them at bay.
