Ignorance can cost you a lot

Poverty and people with a low level of education are usually related in a stereotype that shows them wearing rags and walking lost-sighted on the streets. In some other cases, they are shown working in low-level trades like being waiters in a restaurant or dispatching gasoline in a station. Conversely, smart people are shown occupying beautiful desks in decorated offices, working with the latest technology available for their industry, winning all the games they are in to and earning a lot of money.

Nothing is furthest from the truth, however.

Ignorance can be at all levels, with all kinds of people. It moves you to do wrong things to correct your problems, dealing with your issues or achieving your goals, and many times the consequences of doing it are dangerous.

Would you like an example? Jessica bought the latest computer available in the store to use it at home to type documents and surf the Internet. She could have saved around three hundred bills if she held a minute to find out what she needed to buy. Another? Jacqueline bought pills for her stomach-ache and diarrhoea, when she only had six weeks of pregnancy.

Can you read within our lines? Ignoring things can mislead you to do things that costs you money, time and can even risk your health or safety. Would you like to avoid being being fooled by others and improve yourself as person to your maximum extent (which is what everybody wants to do to feel happy). There is one way to do it: try to learn new things often. Be curious, research, ask. Do not stay thinking that you know all you need to know.

If you make an effort, you will find out there are better ways to do even the things you say you are an expert in.
