Apply Your Knowledge

Training gives me abundant opportunities to apply newly acquired knowledge quickly. There have been many times when I’ve seen a YouTube video or read an article and learned about a new lifting technique or other ideas to broaden my repertoire of exercises. Once my curiosity is piqued, I’m always eager to get in the gym and try it for myself.

Personally, I don’t feel that I’ve truly learned anything until I try it and see if it works for me. I can read books and watch hours of videos about working out, but until I actually move, lift, and create some muscle tension, I won’t create any value from my knowledge. After all, my muscles won’t miraculously grow if I put in no effort to make them do so.

Yet, people often casually say they’ve "learned" something without ever having done it. Just as training doesn’t work that way, neither does much else in life.

So, what are you doing with your knowledge? It doesn't matter how much information you’ve absorbed, how much you’ve read, or how many courses you’ve taken. Until you apply it, your knowledge is untested. It may make you a walking encyclopedia, but it produces no tangible accomplishments for you.

If you get clear instructions and all the detailed blueprints to accomplish something and still don’t do it despite wanting to, it’s time to ask yourself some frank questions. Is it that you don’t believe you can do it? Are you afraid of what you might lose? Are you unwilling to struggle through the learning curve? Might you be deprived of ambition?

It’s your application of knowledge that contributes to you being the total package. When you want to find out what you’re made of, just go for it. Approach it as though you’re training at the gym. Make mistakes, take your lumps, and keep getting better.

Sayonara until next time.
