if you don’t learn these things to put into practice, why learn them in the first place?
Why do you read or take that course, or watch those how to videos and not implement what you have studied.
To say I know that?
Studying on it’s own is useless, knowledge on it’s own won’t do anything.
If the purpose of study is to collect knowledge then you can instead focus your time on something more useful that will impact your life
Because study without implementing is a waste of time,
Learn, but make sure you do something with it afterwards
‘I know first hand that knowledge doesn’t take away the difficulties of life’
Knowledge alone doesn’t really do much, except maybe help you win a pub quiz or look a bit smart and smug in front of your friends or that person you’re trying to impress…
When it comes to facing difficulties in life once again having the knowledge to challenge them and actually implementing that knowledge are completely different.
The knowledge alone will not solve anything, Action with the stuff you know then you’re going to start making progress,
Knowledge helps only when you implement it.
But even the more knowledge you gather and the more action you take, there will always be another life difficulty waiting somewhere in the not so distant future.
Remind Yourself (Often) That You Are Your Most Important Asset.
You buy an investment property, The chances are you’re going to look after the property to increase the cash flow value and the capital appreciation (Unless you’re like my old landlord)
You invest in stocks, you’re going to watch the markets to make sure you can buy/sell at the right times for maximum profits,
Watches, Cars, Shoes, Comics… Whatever you class as your assets you will go out of your way to look after them,
So when the time comes and you want to sell up or increase cashflow You get the maximum return on Investment…
But then there’s our bodies, our health, our mindset…
We’re like Nah fuck that it’ll be alright…
Then we deteriorate because we’ve been neglected
And then we can’t look after our assets so they too deteriorate
Then they become worthless but we’re too sick and frail to do anything about it,
We spend the rest of our days wondering…
What if I look after myself like I did with my once prized collection…
You are the most important thing you will ever have,
Look after it.
