The more I know about things the less I know.
The more I know about things the less I know. When you dig deeper into any complex system such as the human body you realised that infinite possibilities of understanding exist.
There is way too much ego in so many professions particularly in health, the human condition, nutrition, personal training, movement etc… Practitioners want to describe themselves as ‘Masters,’ ‘Guru’s,’ and ‘Specialists.’ The problem I have with these titles isn’t so much the way they are held on a pedestal by others but more about the practitioners own belief system.
When a practitioner describes themselves in such terms …be it Osteopath, doctor, personal trainer, business coach etc… it means that they think they know it all. They have stopped learning. They have stopped questioning their own knowledge and stopped looking for answers. I will never be a master of what I do because I always have the mindset of a student.
This year I will have attended three weeks of courses to broaden my knowledge on all things relating to movement, these courses serve to open my mind to more possibilities, that learning is the journey ceased only by death.
Be wary of anyone who describes themselves as anything else other than a student!
