Applied Knowledge is Power

Since my childhood I have been listening that knowledge is power. This may be true before information age. But I don’t think in today’s parlance it is true. Knowledge might be power when there were few privileged people, who had access to knowledge or information and other people used to look forward to them for any kind of information or guidance. But today it is application of knowledge which makes a person powerful. It is the application of knowledge which takes a person ahead in life. I will give a small example, everyone has knowledge or each one of us is well informed that to keep ourselves healthy, half an hour of physical activity is extremely helpful. Let us put this question to ourselves “how many of us are really doing this on daily basis? This half an hour activity can have profound impact on twenty three and a half hour of our daily life. This half an hour act can increase productivity and improve our quality of life. This half an hour act, can lower our blood pressure, can eliminate deposition of cholesterol in our body, enhances metabolic activities in our body, every cell of our body will be thankful to us for this precious half an hour.  But how many of us are giving this half an hour to keep ourselves healthy. You can find the answer by looking around. But the real question is whether I am giving myself half an hour to myself. All these can happen only when we apply the simple information or knowledge we have about physical activity and its impact on our health and quality of life
With this simple example I want to convey the message that it is application of knowledge that makes it powerful not mere having the knowledge. It is applicable for every aspect of our life.
Similarly, what new things we have learnt, may be from books, internet, training or at the workshop or from our colleagues at the work place or from elders in the park, application of what we have learnt will enable us to harness the benefits. Another example, suppose, we have leant that whatever plan we have made to achieve our goals, if executed will lead to our dream life, whether we are really executing the plan. Only knowing that execution of the plan will bring success in not power. Power is only if we apply those plans. If we have gained knowledge that by saying our loved ones that “I love you” can improve our relationship. We must apply it without any delay. There are several things if we apply can bring tremendous positive impact in our life.
So, Apply your knowledge and see the difference in your quality of life.

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Take action for your dream

There are several traits which take to be successful in life. You need to have dreams and goals. You need to have a plan to achieve those goals. There are people who have a positive attitude, positive thinking, a burning desire, clarity of goals, and the entire essential ingredients required to be successful in life. However, they are not where they want to be and doing what they should be doing.  Then what is that mission link? The missing link is the effort. The effort made on a consistent basis.
         Jim Rohn, a famous motivation speaker and author, says “Affirmation without discipline is an illusion.”
       If you have everything but you do not have self-discipline, your dreams and goals will go away from you. This lack of action will not produce the desired result, resulting in discouragement and depletion of self-confidence.
