Knowledge = Power
It’s an old saying that will always hold true. You hold power over people by keeping them out of the loop and not allowing them to get educated.
Well my financial freedom seeker, you are educated and you have more knowledge than you think you do.
You may not be a genius about spaceships, but if a spaceship builder tried to paint, write a poem, run a business, clean or paint a house, cut hair, invest in the stock market, or even sell something on eBay, or whatever your passion is; They couldn’t do it as well as you. Why? Because they haven’t done it as long as you or care about it enough to try and be as good as you. Just like you don’t care enough or have the passion to build spaceships.
That’s what it’s all about…passion. If you have passion about something you will soak up as much knowledge as you can and become the best at it, because you love it.
Spaceship builders love building spaceships, you love your passion, therefore you 2 are equally geniuses.
Damn right it’s true.
This is a fake image….but it still helps my point
Her passion isn’t large things so obviously this isn’t her forte. So if you have a passion for elephants, the moon, or large things, then you could help teach her a thing or 2.
The point is that you know something she doesn’t and I’m sure she knows something that you don’t.
You can help each other if you decide that you want to know what the other person know.
So let’s find out what power that gives you:
- You can charge her for your knowledge
- You can give your knowledge to her
- You can keep her from knowing
All of the options are possible but the first 2 are going to allow you to Live Your Passion.
Giving away some knowledge and making money off of more detailed knowledge will allow you to Do What You Want and have a lot of power.
Everyone knows something that other people don’t.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
You do. And it may be as simple as how to make a baby quite, or how to juice an orange.
There are people out there that don’t know how and are beginning to learn those things.
So who’s going to teach them?
The world needs to know what you know. So leverage it for your benefit as well. That way everyone wins.
They get knowledge and power and you can Do What You Want and make a living, but you will always have more power because you started before them. So in fact you have more power than you did keeping it for yourself because now they look to you for help instead of someone else.
So, like I said, you have more power than you think.
Use it wisely.
What do you have power in? Let me know in the comments and then maybe someone will want some of your power.
Tweet this post or Facebook share it to let others know that they have the power!!
