You hear it all the time: knowledge is power.
But I am going to change that notion and say that “knowledge is fuel.”
For as long as I can remember, I have seen college students that have lots of knowledge ending up working at places that do not require such. Such as fast-food joints and gas stations.
This is not because they were terrible students – I met one who was a 4.0 graduate. Nor is it because they are unable to do what they studied for. It is because they think being knowledgeable alone will get them where they want to be. And that is not the case.
I should know – I was one of those cases.
While I didn’t get my degree diploma, I managed to earn a lot of data from the classes I attended. And I thought that was going to be enough to face the world ahead.
Boy, Was I Wrong?
As you may know by now, I bounced around from job to job for about ten years before I opened my eyes and realized that the knowledge, I have is not just going to take me where I want to be – it had already become stale due to the quick progression of today’s society.
And that is why I decided to ACT. And that is where the true power lies. Knowledge is the fuel and action is the power.
When you decide to move forward and go after what you want in life, you can use the fuel of knowledge to make the right moves, display your abilities, and convert your community into believers.
Knowledge and Action Make You the Best Around
My advice to anyone reading: do not be afraid of taking a step forward. Will you fall if you do? Perhaps. But you will never know unless you try.
Plus, you get to learn when you fail – a bonus I which I realized long ago. That could’ve made me more proactive.
