“Knowledge is being aware of what you can do. Wisdom is knowing when not to do it” – Anonymous
Do you understand the difference?
I know I see this often with many students of mine. Once they come to my Maverick Selling Business Builder Bootcamp and learn the lessons I teach, they feel like they need to share this information. Learning the training is the knowledge part of the equation. These students know new information which will help many of their family, friends and contacts in ways they never imagined were possible.
Can you guess where the challenge comes in? Most people I know go running home looking to share this information with everyone. It’s the excitement they have with the knowledge they have just learned which they want to share with everyone.
The challenging part is many of the people they are dumping this information on are in a different place and are unable or unwilling to do anything with it.
The wisdom part comes in knowing when to use this new information when their contact is in a more receptive place. This is the part which comes with experience.
Do I know most people could use my coaching to take their life and their business up to the next level – of course. I also know me running around letting everyone know the challenges they have which I could help them solve is an effort in futility. If these people are unaware of these needs themselves and not in a position to want to do something about it, the knowledge will fall on deaf ears.
Learning the knowledge and taking the action steps you need to move forward in your life is an awesome step. Having the wisdom of when to approach others about the same opportunity is priceless.
