Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Knowledge is nothing unless organized in an imagined finalized plan then put into action. The key is that nothing happens with knowledge unless there is action behind it.  Steps to action is thinking of a idea, using imagination and visualization, then devising a plan and putting that plan into action.

We go to school to acquire knowledge, but the failure of our school systems is that they don't teach us how to utilize that knowledge or apply that knowledge to get a gainful result.  Case in point, I went to school for Counseling, then Computer Science, then Business, then Behavioral Science and whatever eles in formal education I threw into the pot. But without an objective it was just Junk Knowledge. If you look at through Mr. Hill's eyes that knowledge could have been integrated together to inspire a financially rewarding end.  If I had the information and don't know what to do with it then it leads to obscurity. Without guidance, imagination and a plan to a desired end of what to do with all those years of study, resulted into a flip flop pile of nothing to show for it. By changing majors over and over again and not having a plan to put my knowledge into a gainful end, left me wondering how I fit into the scheme of productive progression and years of confusion. There are classes for finances, but even those fall short without direction and a plan as to how to apply the financial knowledge to benefit a person to financial independance.

Thankfully, I had enough knowledge to gain employment in a related field of Human Study, but it was not a planned outcome.  I wonder what would have happened if I had specialized knowledge in just one of those fields. I fear say the outcome would have been more productive and rewarding then lived.

Say for instance I took the Counseling, Behavior Science and combined it with the Computer Science and applied my knowledge of  Business using imagination and creative thinking and a business plan, I could have become a Independent Business Consultant, that would of changed my life. I could of charged a good fee for services rendered. I would have been far ahead of the old tired game of starting at the bottom in a state institution. Be it as it may, I can't say that the work I did wasn't rewarding, in the fact I helped dozens of youth through trying times as a Child Counselor. The point here is that I didn't become finacially well off doing it.

Through this lesson I learned that I not only need the knowledge to become a successful network marketer, but I have to know How to Apply what I leaned and put to action of the proven plan provided, and follow the plan without deviation. I must use my imagination to see what lies at the end of those actions necessary for success.  

At long last I'm on the right track and feeling better about my future than I have felt in a long time. This is not to say that knowledge has not been a tremendous effect on my life, on the contrary it got me as far as I am today, but the added formula of what to do with it would have given me a much better outcome.
