We all have seen that more knowledge and more education will help you broaden your thinking and perspective. Using your knowledge and education to solve things will help you with your emotions and it will keep you relaxed. It is not enough to have knowledge but you also have to apply this knowledge in your daily life to make this world a better place for you. It is said that a little knowledge that is applied is worth infinitely more than idle knowledge.
Have you ever listened to advice and applied it? It is a huge difference to just listen to advice compared to applying the knowledge you just acquired or listened to. This is the reason that most studies have a practical portion included with the lesson. Without the practical application of anything, it is useless.
If you are finding ways to apply the knowledge that will broaden your perspective and create opportunities for you, don’t worry!! You have arrived at the right place!
In this article, we will provide you with all the necessary guidelines which will help you apply your knowledge and to overcome the internal resistance for lasting positive change.
So let’s get started!!
Recognize the payoff:
We do the things in a way they always have been done before because they are the same type of payoff. We avoid something painful and we are attracted to things that benefit us and render pleasure. This may be obvious in many cases but sometimes we have got to dig very deep through the surface to understand what we are doing and why we are keeping ourselves stuck in the same place. Whenever we understand the payoff that we are seeking, and what are we trying to avoid, is the time when we will be better able to do the work and apply our knowledge to make it better. This will broaden your perspective in doing that very thing
Practice reduces Pressure:
Changing our behavior requires consistency. The more we do something, the more consistent and instinctive it becomes. And alternatively, through that consistency the more we will see improvement in the things we do. We become more efficient by continuing to do something as much as possible rather than doing it perfectly. The more we do, the better you will become. According to the study of two groups of students, which the 1st group of students had to make a perfect vase, and the other group was assigned to make as many vases as possible. The study concluded that the group which has made as many vases as possible produced superior results. The reason behind this was that they weren’t worried about perfection, rather they felt free to try new ways and employ creativity while having fun. They were not experiencing any type of pressure but the group who was assigned to make a perfect vase failed to do as well because of the pressure and lack of practice.
Apply your knowledge and practice as much as possible keeping pressure in your mind to a minimum.
Change your inner monologue:
This is special to me because we have internal conversations with our self all day every day. We all keep on telling ourselves the stories about the things which we can’t achieve and the things we can achieve. This may sometimes be paralyzing. Applying knowledge to recognize your limiting thoughts and believes will help replace them with empowering ones. For example, if you start thinking that you can’t go out and meet new people. Your limiting belief will paralyze you and fear sets in and before you know it this belief become your reality. But if you replaced the this thought with one that empowers you to improve you will certainly yield a different result. You simply have to replace the thought that you can meet new friends at any time. It may seem like lying to yourself but believe me it will help you a lot. So if you tell yourself positive or empowering affirmations with some evidence to back it up this can lead to life changing results. This is where knowledge will help you by providing that very evidence giving life and reality to your new belief system.
Lets wrap it all up!!
Applying knowledge is a part of learning and continuous growth, and knowledge alone will never help you unless you apply it in your daily life. So, try to apply your knowledge as often as possible and broaden your perspective to open more opportunities for you.
