It is tough to say “I don’t know”.
Because it implies weakness.
But saying “I don’t know” is the only way to navigate the ever-changing world.
Because by saying this you accept what you don’t know. That’s the first step to opening yourself up to solutions.
Once you embrace uncertainty by realizing it’s the default in the world, you stop trying to predict the future and instead accept whatever comes your way.
By doing it you become a stronger version of yourself.
And, if you don’t want to appear weak when someone asks you what you don’t know, like when someone asks you something during an interview, tell them – “I don’t know the answer to that but what I do know isâ€¦.”
If it is a friend or someone close asking you such questions, tell them that you don’t know, but you’d love to explore together and find out.
