Act it Out

A bit of gathered knowledge is of no value until it would be applied correctly within your current circumstances. To know something and to apply this knowledge correctly and in a timely fashion produces value. It is how and when we act or behave that determines our attained level of success and growth.

Think of a coach. She prepares her team and they know what they need to do to win a contest or overcome a challenge. When the activity begins, the team is called upon to act from their knowledge. They can’t simply stand still and think. if no actions are taken or the wrong actions are taken, they will fail. If the knowledge offered and received is applied correctly, they have a great change to succeed and to learn from the experience.

Acting out our knowledge on the stages set for us is how we learn and prosper. Read the book for knowledge, observe and take in the information the coach shares with you, but know that you must act it out for yourself to succeed. Thinking alone takes us nowhere without application, just start.

“A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.” — Carlos Castaneda —
