Working at Home– Is Information Really Power?
Yes, information is power but only if you use the information to do something with it. Just having knowledge while good, does not really do much to help anyone. There are many people that never feel they know enough to actually do something with what they have learned. They just keep reading and learning and never get off the dime.
This can be referred to as paralysis by analysis for one thing. What is needed here is a great big dose of self-confidence to feel that you are worthy to take what you have learned and do something useful with it. One of the ways that I’ve found to do this effectively is by using a mentor or by subscribing to programs that have already proved themselves to be effective. This is just so you can believe that you have valuable information and that you do understand it well enough to share it in some way.
There may be other factors at play when someone just can’t get past the learning curve, other than lack of self-confidence. It may be a mechanism that you employ purposely (albeit perhaps subconsciously) to keep you from having to take the next step in your progression. Maybe you really don’t want a commitment like a home business?
You find it intriguing to think about but when you actually think it is time to get started developing your business, spending money and time, you will always find some other reason that you can’t move forward. In this way it remains a possibility, but you will never have to find out whether you would have succeeded or failed.
One thing that may be helpful in moving past your dilemma (after you admit you have a problem), would be to write things down. They say you are much more likely to actually do something if you write it down and read it periodically. Don’t just read it, actually meditate on it for a few minutes. What does this involve if I actually do something? What would it be like to have a business running at home? Who are some of the people that could benefit if I share what I have learned with them?
While you would think someone with a bank of information may make a great teacher and could start a team that would collaborate to build something, it would also be perfectly acceptable to just use the information to do your own thing. The point is to Just do it.
