Today I was reminded of the old saying, “knowledge is power”.
It reminded me of what I have stated before. Knowledge isn’t power… Execution is Power!!!
Many of us start tasks with saying… “I’ll try”.
This is the wrong approach when wanting to accomplish something.
Think of Karate Kid (the original one) where Myagi is telling Daniel-san that if he is “yes”, then he is on one side of the road. If he is “no” he is on the other side of the road. However if he is “guess so” then he is in the middle of the road.
To “try” is the exact same thing. If we “try”… then we get stuck in the middle of the road on our journey towards goal achieving. We never cross it and get to our goal. However, if we “apply” and say “I will do it” or “I am doing it” the percentage drops and we stand a chance of achieving great things. If we start every task with the term “try”… we will always be able to use that as a “reason” (excuse) for failing… “well I tried.” Honestly, I have never heard someone who just achieved something major say… “well… I just tried”.
Change your vocabulary before you start your next task or goal. “Try”… ooops… Take the knowledge that you are getting and “apply” it. Put it to use. Help yourself and when you see success… share that with others this Power. Help them see the benefit and pay it forward.
