You can overcome!
Confusing opinions with learning and confusing awareness with competence. An opinion is not the same as a thought. Human beings endlessly churn out opinions about every aspect of their lives. This is natural and normal, but it’s not the same thing as thinking and has no connection to learning. Thinking is the process of generating an original idea or distinction. Thinking requires energy and attention; having an opinion requires neither. Learning is the process of developing new competence and requires consistent practice. Under the sway of our opinions, we wall ourselves off from learning as we think that because we have an opinion about something, we must “know” it. A related enemy appears when we confuse awareness with learning; we mistakenly assume that a new awareness automatically equates to a new competence. The attainment of awareness and the development of competence are two entirely different processes. The main failing of most personal or professional development work is that it settles for providing you with awareness as opposed to building new competence.
