In these uncertain times without knowledge you could exhaust all your energy being wound up, running in place like a mouse in a wheel, ruminating on the catastrophes that could happen—and some people do.
By pursuing increased knowledge you won’t be one of those people spinning. Rather than exhausting your energy spinning, you’ll be building a reserve to draw upon and keep you resilient. The right knowledge will liberate you. You will literally be smarter, stronger, resistant and resilient…wealthy in ways others just can’t understand.
Knowledge Every Day
Here’s three tips to help you take a new view of “everyday” and make knowledge your power source.
*Keep your eyes and your mind open. Remember the mantra…if you’re not growing you’re falling behind. The daily flood of information holds inspiration and ideas for you to decipher. From how the Cubs won the World Series by recruiting players with character to how Muhammad Ali, a kid who could have fallen through the cracks, made himself larger than life. If you’re looking for them you’ll find the nuggets in the everyday seeming banal world of information.
*Use each day to slowly but surely build and make education and self-improvement a life-long habit. A recent study of the habits of the wealthiest people found that 86% believe in life-long learning and daily improvement. An even higher percentage, 88% read at least 30 minutes each day.
*With new eyes develop your skill to stay open and broaden and develop new, alternate perspectives. I hear these leaps of assessment all the time….. They didn’t call back they must not like me. My presentation must not have been good enough. Our budget was cut; they must think we’re not important. These are inferences people use to operate by. They make further inferences and develop more perspectives on how the world is out to sink them and the whole thing becomes a solid basis for conclusion but in reality it’s completely flawed from the start.
Negativity, limitations, demoralization and fear voluntarily inhabit our psyche. Knowledge, inspiration, ideas, enthusiasm, hope, faith and desire—all positives have to be sought after and injected.
Make sure you are challenging and overriding the voluntary, the uncertainty, fear and anxiety of everyday by injecting new knowledge that you have chased down and uncovered.
