Being right some of time, fuels all full-time skeptics

James Randi with some expensive art (Photo credit: Wikipedia) If you are skeptical all the time, you would be right at least once. Being skeptic doesn't means being against anythings nor does it forward another alternative. Being skeptic is creating doubt around something but not enough to dismiss is outright. You can even go ahead dismissing something, knowing that if the that thing fails just once, you are proven right. Your position is save even if that thing is just right only one time. The skeptic can be right once to be proven true, the target of the skepticism, on the other hand, cannot fail.
The position is non-committal. If you are wrong, then you can just shrug it off because you didn't say it was wrong in the first place. But you have gloating rights when your skepticism is proved justified, even though only in hindsight.

Blessed are, those who share their blessings in silence

In a world where vanity is a virtue, it can be hard to be sincere to oneself. Where the action of doing good clashes with the desire to be a visible example of good.
Being visible doing something means allowing others to join and do likewise. A kinship of common action creates community. In community, we find acceptance, affirmation and support.
While visible is the start to this path, the path is not without devious junctions. The hunger the first drives us can cloud good judgement. Being visible is becoming the example. And becoming the example does not require self-promotion but recognition. And while recognition should not be the goal, preparing to take advantage of recognition, is.
Be hungry still.

I'm don't share my knowledge because I know more, I know more because I share my knowldege

Nothing is an example of the mastery of a knowledge than the ability to teach it. Answering questions increases the knowledge of both person who asked the question and the person providing an answer.
Conversely, hoarding knowledge is a sign of little one knows, and hoarding the knowledge is a way to keep something for themselves as a way to show some things others know not of.
