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.

This one thing can make you rich and prosperous

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’   I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…

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…

Simple act to be master in your chosen field

Take simple steps, unlearn things that are not necessary and learn things that are important to achieve goals and to make life simpler. There are many things which we have learnt. Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind. If such is the situation we must unlearn certain things. So, we can create space to learn new things that are essential for us to achieve a larger purpose. We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life. A few days ago I was watching a videotape. I heard a speaker saying interesting thing about Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and Bharat Ratna awardee. The speaker said t…
