Applied Knowledge

Most people who want to create the life they desire go about it in a half-assed way, excuse my French. They read a book once, don’t absorb it, won’t apply any of the techniques or principles and then, doing nothing, expect a miracle to happen. When nothing happens and their life is the same, instead of looking inward, they blame the book and say that all self-improvement writers are just out for money.

We’ll of course they want to make money, I’m no different, but most have a legitimately deep desire to help others. If an individual who buys success philosophy material and doesn’t do anything with it, then who’s fault is it?

Knowledge is not power applied knowledge is power. If you don’t do anything with what you read, watch or listen to, then there’s no one to blame but yourself. A book, video or audio is just a tool, a guide to help you along the path to your desired life. If you don’t apply the advice that’s in the material, then no success philosophy advice in the world will help you.

The article you’re reading now is to motivate you to get on the right track and apply what you learn. In the end, you’re the one who has to take the knowledge, principles and skills and apply them to your unique situation. The desire must be there to want to learn and apply the knowledge you gain.

Life is a series of choices. Every decision made leads one in a certain direction. Depending on the type of choice, it can be the road to success or the highway to failure. The choice is always in our own hands.

The same can be said when learning something new. If the advice is uplifting, powerful and full of helpful knowledge, you have the choice to use it and make it your own. On the other hand, you also have the choice to ignore it and miss out on some potentially great opportunities in your life.

Applied knowledge is power. Make the most of what you’ve been given. Study, learn and apply should be your motto whenever you come across information that could be very valuable to you. If it’s something that will move you along the path to your ideal life, seize that opportunity and take full advantage what the knowledge has to offer. You won’t regret it.
