BIG step in achieving success!




What are you trying to accomplish? What do you dream about? What do you study, like we talked about in my study your passion post.

I have a thought I'd like you to ponder today as you are sitting down with your daily goals and trying to accomplish. Are you ready? Knowledge is not power.

Hold on...wait did I just say that? Yes, yes I did. Knowledge is endless. It can even teeter on the side of overwhelming thanks to the age of the internet. Before I explain my above statement answer this: Have you ever wanted something so bad you spend countless hours researching, studying, implementing strategies that before you know it you have a creak in your neck from stress. That my friends is being overwhelmed with knowledge...but you haven't acted upon your knowledge.

There it is. That is the key. Knowledge itself isn't the power, it is how we implement that knowledge that gives us power. As I've said before, I have spent years researching SEO (I still feel like I don't get it) Self-publishing, how to write, how to make passive income, how to traditionally publish novels etc. Yet, what have I done? I've written a book true, but it's sitting on my hard drive. So, one day I finally realized I could spend my life learning the proper way to do things, or I could actually publish my work for others to read and build my own success instead of reading others.

So that is what I'm going to do. I'm going to implement my knowledge I've gained and use it to build the life I want. In many areas. Now, I'm in no way saying to stop learning...I love learning. We must keep learning, but be careful to not waste your life just gaining knowledge on how to do something and never actually doing it.

Happy Writing!
Knowledge + action = power!
