Think is a free source of important information. Learn about issues that are likely to impact your future. Learn about other sources of valuable information that are available to you. Your brain is a tool. By reading and learning, you can sharpen and improve that tool. Knowledge is power. You need to know what’s happening in the world around you. It makes you more prepared for the challenges ahead. It makes you more formidable, more interesting and hopefully more employable and/or able to attract investment for your ideas. The more you improve your mind, the more capable and confident you will become. As your confidence grows your fears will diminish. Increased knowledge will expose you to new opportunities and give you the courage required to seize those opportunities.
