1.The intellect is what shows when the skin of ignorance is painfully ripped off the ego. What remains is something new, more refined, and a person with a much more bounded ego.
2.If you try to become smarter or wiser overnight you will most likely fail. There is no way around it. What’s odd is that we have no trouble understanding that to become fit one must commit to fitness over time. To become wealthy one must commit to finance and improving its income over time. The way to become smart or wise is to commit to learning overtime, and this is of course after you shed yourself from the belief that only some selected few are born with the ability to know things.
3.To grow intellectually, it’s important to be aware of the fact that ignorance will be a lifetime companion no matter how much you learn. Ignorance just like the shadow will always be somewhere around the corner, and it will make itself visible if you only look for it. Just remember that just because the shadows is out of sight, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
4.As you grow intellectually it’s important not to get drunk on your knowledge, and the first sign of this drunkenness will not be in the form of slurred speech or aimless walk, but in the form of arrogance, and unbounded and thus unrealistic confidence on your own abilities. This is the exact moment when you stop growing intellectually.
It is all about knowledge and experience 😉
