A popular saying goes, “knowledge is power”, but some school of thought even took it further and said, “application of knowledge is the ultimate power!” Whichever the case you might want to identify with, it is all on the clarity.
The key to seeking knowledge is to knowing things by asking about how & why things are the way they are. And singer & actress Korra Obidi is seeking to know why people don’t ask questions anymore. She says: “WHY? Not a lot of people ask this question. Growing up in Nigeria, it is considered rude to question your elders and subconsciously, we all stop asking. At least I did.
I started to go with what everyone was doing. Forgetting to ask WHY?”
“My husband askes WHY all the time, he needs to know the WHY to everything.
At first it was so annoying, answering him felt like he was always attacking my intelligence, always questioning my life.? Answering him was uncomfortable sometimes, but then he said to me, ‘if you are uncomfortable with my questions, it probably stems from an insecurity of not knowing as much as you should’ This shook me. Curiosity breeds knowledge and Knowledge is power. Know your why today.
It isn’t Rude, it is essential.
You might be surprised what answers you will receive. #knowyourwhy”
