I love personal development material; after all, I founded an entire site and community around the subject. It is a fantastic way to share life lessons, avoid the mistakes that others have made, and fast track success.

But there's a mistake that I have made myself in the past and see new members of the community making on a regular basis.

Many people who start working on personal growth and development find themselves gobbling up the material like you would if you binge-watched the new season of your favorite show on Netflix. They devote many hours to learning incredible new things, changing their mindsets, figuring out their personality type, and reading about other successful people.

Then they eventually start to wonder why nothing has changed in their lives.

The problem is that knowledge and application are NOT the same thing.

If you never take ACTION on what you've learned, you might as well have spent your days watching Netflix.

Knowledge Without Action Leads Nowhere Fast

A dream without a plan will remain a dream. A dream with a plan but no action will remain a dream. Only when you create a plan and take action, do you have a real chance for your dreams to become a reality.

What do you need to take action on today?

I went for three whole years without a single friend. Yes, you heard that right. Three years. No exaggeration or joke about it. Throughout middle school and high school, I had a decent amount of friends and TONS of acquaintances. I assume people would have described me as outgoing and the “life of the party.”
