Specialized Knowledge is knowledge Applied. There is an old saying to know and not to do is NOT to know. Think about this, you go to the dealership and purchase a Rangerover and its sitting in your garage. You do not become a better driver if you do not drive. If a car sits in the garage and you do not use it then it deteriorates. Cars were meant for driving and like Zig Ziglar said in his CD How to Get What You Want "Man Was Built For Purpose."
Same here with skills. Without skills you are toast. Hustle beats talent every single time. Eric Thomas a hop hop preacher mentioned that he does NOT care how much talent a person brings to the table. The people who get ahead in life are the ones who are learning new skills & teaching it to others and OUTWORKING you by productivity NOT activity. Remember amateurs join but PROFESSIONALS LAUNCH.
Those are the ones who acquired the skills just like a surgeon or a pilot has. And they are productive like the Suregon is on the operating table and the Pilot is when he is flying. However they do NOT take forever and ever to get educated. They learn as they go and they do not wait for every single question to be answered. Bob Shoaf has said back in February on a Coaches Corner Call that your mentor can teach you 15% of the knowledge and 85% of the knowledge comes from training. You will NOT understand a skill, like blogging, doing videos, Instagram or FB from a one on one conversation alone with your mentor. If you are comfortable then you can't be successful. You must give up the good so tommorow you can have the great. What do you want most in life? Is it to travel, is it to go back to college for a passion NOT because you have to pay the bills?
Bottom line-Do toteday what others what others wont so tommorow you can have what others can't.
Last but not least be coachable which means FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS!
Those who do so get ahead and those who do not have their Rangerover sitting in their garages forever!
PS: Do today what others won't so tommorow you can have what others can't.
