If someone were to ask, ‘”what is your greatest strength?” How would you reply?  John F. Kennedy, said “My curiosity.”  Now, that’s an answer most wouldn’t expect.  Then there’s Albert Einstein, who claimed, “I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious.”

Eleanor Roosevelt replied,  “I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow him/her with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.” 
    
What’s so great about curiosity? Actually, it’s one of the few traits that we, as humans, share with the entire animal kingdom.  It’s that primal, necessary urge to find out everything we can about our environment and oursurroundings.

 It was curiosity that compelled Christopher Columbus to sail the oceans blue. Curiosity guided the first settlers to seek out their food sources and shelter. Just as curiosity remains our guide, today. 
To put it simply, curiosity is the catalyst of survival for all creatures, great and small.  But for humans, it’s so much more.  

Curiosity remains our main reason and our  guide when exploring new ways of doing things.  Its curiosity that has led us to find the solutions to a myriad of problems. It also allows us to investigate many new possibilities.  Its curiosity that keeps our child-like sense of  wonder alive, in all of us.  

When your curiosity is keen, you can grow, and expand your mind and life, to fulfill even your wildest dreams.   

This is a fun trick to try, to demonstrate what I mean.

e of the6 rsll l’proverbial’ box. You just might surprise yourself by what you  come up with!

Now, to add a few more words to your ‘curiosity arsenal’, here’s a poetic reminder from Rudyard Kipling:   

“I had six honest serving men.  
They taught me all I knew.  I call them Why and When and Where  And How and What and Who.”

Oh! And don’t worry that “curiosity killed the cat.”  Remember the rest of that proverb?- “but satisfaction brought him back”
Stay curious!
