have the Knowledge
One thing that can never be taken away from you is what
you know. Knowledge is power. Knowledge gives us an internal
power. When we know that we know, we can do incredible things.
We simply have to acknowledge that we do have knowledge.
Once we embrace our knowledge, we step into our personal
One of the things we do is assume that everyone knows what
we know. Not true. Just because we know something doesn't
make it common knowledge. The key here is to value what
we know even if it seems to come naturally or easy to us.
This is a gift we were given and our gift is valuable.
Know that you know and don't be afraid to use your knowledge.
Knowledge is powerful. Don't be afraid of the power that
you have within. Use your knowledge and be the powerful
person you were meant to be.
It is amazing how much time we can spend pretending that
we don't know. One way that we negate our personal power
and deny our knowledge is by using disempowering language.
Starting sentences with "I think" or "I could
be wrong" diminish our power and negate our knowledge.
Do not be afraid to assert what you know. Be bold and step
into the power of knowing that you know.
Knowledge is power and there is nothing wrong with having
personal power. How we use personal power is what counts.
Don't worry that if you have power it will make someone
else powerless. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Your power does not diminish anyone else. In fact, just
the opposite happens. By modeling your power, others will
have a positive example to follow.
Where are you denying your knowledge and hiding your power?
Knowledge = Power
"It is important to use all knowledge ethically, humanely,
and lovingly." Carol Pearson
"Knowledge is power and enthusiasm pulls the switch."
"Not to know is bad, not to wish to know is worse."
