In our day teachers and solutions are abundant, but desire is sometimes misdirected.
We lack focused desire, not the abundant resources to solve our own problems.
When we really want to learn something we can find a ready teacher and a multiplicity of solutions.
A number of years ago I suffered a torn ACL in my left knee. I couldn't jump or guard opponents on the basketball court. I even had trouble climbing stairs without pain.
After the Orthopedic Surgeon removed 90% of my meniscus I, as a hungry student, asked him how I could prevent further pain and surgeries. He suggested maintaining an optimal weight and increasing my quadriceps strength.
I followed his advice and even asked many people what else I could do. The result? Pain in my knee completely ceased, my quads increased in size by 3 inches, and I actually jumped higher after my surgery than before my surgery.
We are all motivated, ready students in given areas.
A man may say he is not good or has no desire to manage his income, but he can recite statistics of his favorite athletes for several seasons. Or another person may memorize and meticulously manage 50-70 fly fishing lures but find it challenging to track expenses or remember to pay creditors.
When we really need and must have something, then we will find many solutions. Connections, knowledge, action and confidence readily inflow to ready students.
The question isn't where is the teacher? But rather are you really ready to learn?
