HOW AND WHY WE SUFFER LOSS.
Whenever you possess something, but lack the understanding of its value, there are some consequences you suffer:
4. YOU SUFFER LOSS
Whenever you own something without a corresponding knowledge of the possession, you eventually lose it. If you give a five thousand dollar diamond ring to a two year old child, sooner or later, that child is going to lose the treasure. Even though you could have meant well, yet the child would misplace the diamond.
It is obvious because, that child doesn’t know the value of a diamond ring. He might just be seeing it as another playing toy. Besides, the child does not know the value of money yet, which means five thousand dollars does not seem to be anything to him. That lack of value sense would deprive the child from a protective instinct which could have applied in this case.
Instinctively, we naturally want to guard or protect something we view as precious. But when we don’t see the value, we don’t put the protective edge. The same thing goes with life. On a daily basis, people lose their lives, they lose their health, they lose their families, and they lose their children, only because they refuse to have a corresponding knowledge to what they possess in hand. POSSESSION WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING LEADS TO LOSS.
“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” -Charles Darwin
