If You Think You Already Know  

“Pretense of knowledge is our most dangerous vice, because it prevents us from getting any better.”  Ryan Holiday in Ego is the enemy


I have spent most of my adult life in schools, and when I obtained my third degree in acupuncture in 2007, I thought I was finally done with studying. It turned out I was very wrong.


After I opened my clinic in 2008, I was forced to realize in many occasions that I couldn’t help my patients because I simply didn’t know enough. It was a very difficult pill to swallow, but it was probably the best blessing in disguise.


We can’t fix what we don’t know, and we can’t learn what we think we already know. It is our ego that tells us we already know; therefore, we don’t need to learn. It is uncanny how true it is, how often I see this in my patients, and how it explains why some people never get better.


May I now convince you to start attending my nutrition seminars? :)


If you want to keep your physical and emotional health, please stay humble and continue to learn. I think it is the best and only way.


P.S. I highly recommend Ego is the enemy by Ryan Holiday.
