We hear it all the time. Knowledge is power but it is truly only power if it is applied. We live in a world where we are surrounded and inundated by information. All of our favorites on Social Media are now experts and conducting Masterclasses on just about any topic from cooking to bossing up. I too fall prey to overconsumption but it is best to take the knowledge that we obtain in small doses, Just likes medicine. Although the information may be great, it is nothing if it is not applied.
These are some steps that I picked up from Tony Robbins regarding applying knowledge.
Steps to Take in Order to Take Action:
Know Your Outcome
- What do you want (out of life)? Knowing this is important because clarity is powerful.
- Be clear mentally, physically, socially, spiritually and financially.
- Determine if your outcome is useful.
Use Your Power to Take Action
- Take action to move towards your goals.
- Get up and try to accomplish whatever it is that you want. Don’t wait for the infamous “someday.” There is power in the here and now.
- Decide to push yourself to the next level. Demand more of yourself.
- Fear keeps you from action. Deal with fear by facing it. Keep in mind that fear can service. It can be a counselor and show you what to do and what not to do.
- Start small and build everyday.
Notice If Your Action Is Working
- Successful people fail. You might fail when you take action. Embrace failure and learn from it.
- The ultimate failure is NOT taking action.
- Use role modeling to accelerate the rate of your success.
- Find someone who is getting the results you want and DO THE SAME THINGS. It’s law. It works.
Don’t Fear Failure
- Take 2 to 3 actions that will change the quality of your life. It can be small or big actions but act on at least 2 or 3 things that is life changing and keep on doing.
- Take action immediately. Make a call to someone you’ve been meaning to call, clean the house, read the book you’ve been meaning to read.
- Success is the result of good judgment but we get to good judgement by making bad judgements.
