The only thing which makes a difference between human beings other species are sense of curiosity. Human beings are the only species in this world which have innate ability of knowing, learning, discovering, searching and analyzing. All the progress in human history in based on his quality to be curious. Imagine human beings have discovered 1200 different types of scorpions. They also know where they are found which one is beneficed and which one is harmful. No other species in the world know much about own existence. Human race has all the answers.

Why I am not successful? How can I progress in my life? Are three golden questions which can change anyone forever? Major developments in the world occur through curiosity of individuals about the affairs of life. For example if Alexander Fleming did not work on finding the causes of deaths of individuals due to germs, how vaccines would came into existence. If right brothers don’t focus on the process of birds flying in the Sky; how come ideas of making a plane flourish? Make a list of all the inventions and discovers of the world, all of them is a product of curiosity and deliberate practice. Sense of knowing about things is in our genes.

Make a list of food for thought by yourself. These foods are lecturer’s seminars, and books you read or attend this year. Like a small success attracts big success similarly knowledge attracts more knowledge. Try to figure out in which areas of knowledge you need to work on. Einstein was the most prominent figure of last century. Somebody asks him how come he became more talented? He took a pause and answers it by saying “merely curiosity”. How impressive that such an eminent personality weights curiosity on such a high node.
To conclude the topic a beautiful quote of Walt Disney is worth mentioning “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we are curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
