July 28th 2016, Knowledge is only potential power

   I know everyone says knowledge is power, but it is only potential power. Execution trumps knowledge any day of the week. Do you know who said this Tony Robbins, before you go knocking him just stick with me until the end of this post. So sit back and get ready to learn.

   Most of you reading this post might not know this but I am very knowledgeable when it comes to weight training, yet my physique tells a different story. I have all this knowledge on weight training but I'm doing nothing with it. If I were to apply the knowledge on myself then I can better my health. If i was to post the knowledge on this site or YouTube I can help may other people better their health. Just by having the knowledge does not grant me power it just gives me a little more leverage than the average person starting out. At the same time a person who starts a journey to get in shape with no knowledge on working out has power. The power to change their life.

   Another example of knowledge being only potential power and execution trumping knowledge can be seen in the financial world. Lets take a little look at financial advisers and economic professors/teachers. The advisers give you advice on where to invest yet they do not invest in the same funds. Isn't that weird they say how good it is based on their years of expertise but they do not invest in the same fund. Now look at economic teachers and professors, they teach students about the economic world but they are drowning in debt. How can they teach from a book when they have no real world experience in the subject. If a financial adviser is living from paycheck to paycheck and giving financial advise then something is definitely wrong.

   This is one of the main reason I started this blog was to practice expressing myself to my audience, while at the same time becoming a teacher.
