This is a simple but powerful phrase that I learn today – ‘Ignorance of Ability Brings Disability’. The deeper I think about the meaning behind, the more I find its truth.
If we think that we are unable to do certain thing, it is not because we have no talent, instead it is because we are ignorant of our ability to learn it. No talent, or difficult, is just an excuse.
I can’t use chopstick correctly until I saw a crippled man doing chinese calligraphy with his upper arm. I am now learning the correct way of using chopstick and I am confident that I will learn this graceful and delicate skill eventually.
Also I no longer have excuse for not acquiring any knowledge or skill simply because I think that I have no ability to learn it.
