Have you ever come across the word “knowledge is power” and what are your thoughts…?
Being good at anything requires knowledge, and knowledge is the information acquired through education or experiences.
Having to know anything is very important but doesn’t mean you have the right knowledge. Right knowledge for me: is the action you apply to information or education you have acquired. This is known as experience, making the right use of that information by putting it in practice and see yourself produce/develop out of that which you’ve acquired.
Acquiring knowledge can be very simple to do with the help of reading books, doing researches or even getting information from newscast etc. There is a difference of just knowing without putting it in actions and “knowing” by doing.
It’s like you studying something on the internet/at school and saying you have the knowledge but in practice you find it difficult, because you haven’t done it before. Such knowledge can easily be forgotten.
“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.”
― Albert Einstein
Knowledge can be worthless if you don’t put it in actions or have the motivation to create something with it.
Whatever you do with that experience matters a lot because you have to be able to challenge yourself , so you can grow and learn. Sometimes you don’t succeed with that knowledge of what you know but all you have to do is start over. The more you learn to experience the easier it becomes.
“Knowledge is power. Power to do evil…or power to do good. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
For me i believe that “motivation” is powerful than the word “Knowledge is Power”.
As noted earlier: it is easy to acquire knowledge through different means but how motivated are you to do something with it, that’s a We could see someone doing something wrong or mistreating others and we know such is wrong , we have the knowledge of what is right or wrong but we still don’t do the right thing. All because we not really motivated to take that right step, instead we allow fear to take over our action & knowledge.
