Knowledge Is Only Potential Power



Whether you want to make a living online, or just want some extra spending money, you’ll need the resources that will give you the knowledge you need to be successful.

But, you’re not home free Although success requires knowledge, that by itself won’t get you much more than the envy of your friends at the Saturday night Trivial Pursuit game. Knowledge is only potential power. It must be pared with action and persistence. That is true power.

As an affiliate, learning “the ropes” is an exciting yet humbling experience. If only you knew what the “gurus” know. If only you had the “easy button.” If only you knew the “secrets to success.” But that’s the problem. There is no easy button and there are no secrets to success in spite of what some lead you to believe. It is up to you, and only you, to use the knowledge you have and that is available to you to produce lasting success.

Flash back to high school and all the math formulas, book reports, history facts and events and more that you “learned.” Be honest, how much of it do you actually remember? If you’re like most of us, you remember very little. I like to call this my “temporary learning cache.” Now, fast forward to the present. Remember your first click to surf the Internet? Probably not, because surfing the Net has now become second nature to you. Throughout the years you have built upon your knowledge of how to surf by putting it to use on a daily basis. In fact, any knowledge followed by action and persistence, stores that knowledge in your subconscious mind. This allows you to use that information without consciously thinking about it.

As an example, when you’re driving to work, you do not think about shifting, steering or braking. This has become automatic. It is knowledge that you have paired with action and persistence. You have committed it to your subconscious memory. And, here’s the kicker . . . once there, you will never have to “relearn” that information again.

So, as an affiliate, your task is to not only “learn,” but to put into practice what you learn. All your reading and researching without action and persistence will be forgotten.

Success starts by determining what knowledge you need. Is it an affiliate program that matches your interests? Perhaps, a product that excites you? Or, a skill you need to learn? Passionately seek out information and turn it into powerful knowledge through action and persistence. Once mastered, you will never lose it
