“Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge. Let your learning lead to action.” ~Jim Rohn
A friend of mine recently asked me if she could pay me to help her rewrite her resume. Another asked me if he could pay me to help him craft a cover letter. I turned them both down. I offered to do it for nothing. I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have so many people who have helped me along my path, especially when I was down and out. I could spend my entire life paying forward those favors and it won’t ever be enough. I’ve been blessed by a lot of angels.
The knowledge I’ve gained from my many experience has given me a rich life. However, the true value of that knowledge isn’t in my ownership of it. The real value is revealed when I share it and use it to make my corner of the world a better place in the best way I know how. Take what you know and give it away. Let it be a light for others. In time it will come back to you in ways you never thought possible.
