Importance of thinking ability
We think as follows.
<Your decisions make your life>
Your life is succession of decisions, for example, which drink you buy, how you tell your boss, which college you take the entrance examination. You always decide and decide, and the each decision is making your life. If you decide well in a important situation, you can lead your life to a good direction. If you always make the best decision, you can lead your life to the best life.
If you want to make a good decision, it is important to think well by yourself. If you decide without thinking or if you can't think well or if you can't decide with your own sense of values, you will probably not decide well.
<Defects and limits of only knowledge>
In the world, most education mainly give knowledge like "Do this in this situation." and "Don't do that." and "This is right." and so on. But, you face innumerable occurrences in your life. Even if it is a similar situation, there is no completely the same situation. If you are given only knowledge, you will not be able to always act well.
For Example, even if you tell someone something in similar situation, according to a listener, it is different how a listener understand even if you tell as the same. If a listener's feelings is slightly different, it may be different how a listener understand even if you tell the same person as the same.
If you give a person only knowledge like "Do this in this situation.", can you teach the person about all situations of the person's life? If the person face a occurence that the person was not given knowlege, can the person act according to circumstances? Different persons have different senses of values. Can the person always decide with the person's own sense of values? Can the person make the person's life happy by itself?
Now, educational environmet is better than before. But there are a lot of people who can't do anything if the person is told something concretely, there are a lot of people who are poor in communication, there are a lot of people who are weak in leadership, there are a lot of people who are apt to be uneasy and depressed. They have a lot of knowlege. But they have not improved their thinking ability.
<If you bring out your potentiality>
If you can always think well and decide well, you can always act well according to circumstances, you can get a good result if you make an effort, you can improve your abilities efficiently if you train.
There are a lot of information in the world. If you can think well, you can select useful information efficiently by yourself.
There are persons who are called a genius. But their relatives are not necessarily a genius. Their abilities may not be hereditary. If you can think well and you can bring out full your potentiality, you may become like a genius by your own efforts.
<Happy life with stable mind>
If you can always think well by yourself, you can always depend on your own, you can decrease troubles and worry and so on, you can act by your own will and you can decrease regrets. You can live in happy with stable mind.
<Great influence on the world>
