When What You Know Isn’t Enough.

What you know might not be enough to make you successful. Your experience. Your education.

Where you have been. Who you know.

All of that might not be enough to make you successful.

Who you are right now — where you are right now — might not be the right formula for you to achieve the results that you want.

That’s something to think about. To really consider.

A big part of the obstacles you encounter has a lot to do with you.)

(That’s true for what’s good and the bad stuff too.)

Your life experience is an asset to you.

You can learn from your mistakes and improve over time.

But your life experience can also leave you jaded, biased by unfortunate experiences and negative people.

The truth is that you might only know half of the story. Maybe not even that much. You might know nothing at all.

So it’s important to move out of your comfort zone purposely.

To learn new things. Perfect new skills.

To push yourself even harder.

That’s important because what you know right now probably isn’t enough all by itself.

What you learn, what you can know, though is enough to help you achieve any goal you ever set for yourself

Maybe the best thing to know is that you don’t know it all.
