Knowledge is Power
I have said this simple statement “Knowledge is Power” since I was a young person.
I heard it at home from both of my parents.
I heard it from my teachers at pretty much every school I attended.
I never questioned it. And, I don’t question it today because…
Knowledge gives you choices.
Knowledge gives you access.
Knowledge gives you information that you previously didn’t know.
Knowledge gives you … yes, YOU… the ability to improve yourself.
Knowledge gives you … yes, YOU … the ability to improve the lives of others.
Knowledge gives you … yes, YOU … the ability to make better decisions.
Knowledge becomes a part of you and cannot be taken from you.
Yes, I’m talking to YOU.
Yes, I’m talking about YOU.
I often hear – Knowledge isn’t power … Action is! And it’s simply not true.
Without Knowledge how do you know what action to take?
I have a challenge for you:
Learn something new.
See the world in a new way.
See yourself in a new way.
Teach it to someone so that they, too, can see the world and themselves in a new way.
Do this and then tell me that you don’t believe Knowledge is Power.
