Would you like to become the best version of yourself in 2024, achieve your goals, realize your fullest income potential, and maximize your sense of fulfillment?
If so, gaining and applying the power of knowledge is your ticket. So, let’s review the 5 simple ways to gain and apply the power of knowledge.
You may recognize this quote from Charlie “Tremendous” Jones:
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today, except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read.”
How can new knowledge change you in 5 years from now, and even in 2024? Knowledge will empower you to overcome challenges and setbacks, break through previously impenetrable barriers, see new horizons, rethink the world around you, reimagine your possibilities, and it will change your mindset and skillset. It can drive personal growth, enhance leadership capacity, improve relationships, and improve health.
Acquire Knowledge, Then Apply It
So, harness this limitless and life-changing power by first acquiring new knowledge, and then applying it. Here are five ways to start your journey (as found in the book Becoming Your Best: The 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders):
- Read a book a month and keep a journal of key points
- Invest 3 percent of your income in yourself
- Start or join a mastermind group
- Regularly assess the external environment
- Search for feedback and willingly accept it
Where will you start? What would be most impactful? If reading is a new habit, and you’d like to make it a habit, then follow the advice in this article on creating new habits.
And, if you’re looking for actionable feedback, simply ask those around you and those you work with (anonymously if needed) what they think you should (1) continue, (2) start, and (3) stop doing. You’ll get some good insights and knowledge!
So, make this an incredible year for growth by gaining and applying the power of knowledge. Read, invest, learn from others, assess your external environment, and get regular feedback. That’s becoming your best!
“The fact is that your actions and your behavior follow your thoughts. Learn, learn, learn, and apply what you’ve learned to reach new heights.” – Steve Shallenberger
