Correct Power Is Knowledge

It’s essential that as we grow, we keep learning. The more we know, the better we can react to everything else around us. If we don’t have the knowledge to act correctly, we are forced to go with the flow of whatever is happening. This can often leave us in a precarious position.

Just because we knew something 20 or 30 years ago does not mean that we know what we need to know today. We keep learning more about various subjects, and therefore the knowledge and the actions required constantly change. We actually double the understanding of our world at a much higher rate than any time in history. Now, what we knew last year or the year before may be outdated. If it’s important enough, you want to check it out before making a statement that some may consider foolish.

Next time someone tells you about something, and you really believe they’re wrong, you may want to check a few sources before saying anything. You want to do this before you disagree with something; it could have just come out last year and the other person has the correct change.

Have you ever disagreed with somebody over a subject and then found out the other person was correct?

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
