Be curious. A curious mind seeks to be educated. Being curious means you look forward to learning new things and are troubled by gaps in your understanding of the world. New words and new ideas are received as challenges and the work of understanding them is embraced. People who lack curiosity see learning new things as a routine task. Read, watch and see things that you don't know anything about. Try to expand your mind by learning beyond your comfort zone and see how other people think, perceive and understand things.
Curiosity is about pushing yourself beyond what you're. Sometimes you feel really uncomfortable, out of your depth and even upset when trying to learn new things. This happens when you feel dumb, unlearned or when your beliefs and values are challenged. Keep pushing yourself to learn and to become wiser.
