Knowledge Before It’s Too Late

before it's too late

One of the greatest challenges for most of us is our hesitation to share knowledge with others – before it’s too late.

In my lifetime, I’ve seen many people come in and out of my life, and there have been some incredible occasions where I’ve been able to learn so much from others by sharing knowledge. Many of these people I’ll probably never see again and never get the chance to tell them how much the knowledge they shared with me has helped me in developing my own knowledge, and to share this knowledge even further with others.

There are other people I still see regularly, and I try not to miss opportunities to share knowledge. We all have unique life experiences and we all have knowledge to share. I also try not to miss opportunities to tell others how grateful I am that they have shared their life experiences of knowledge with me. If it means a lot to me to hear this from others, then I hope it means a lot to others to hear it from me.

One of my major problems early in my life was that I spent much of my time thinking that others weren’t really interested in the knowledge I had to share with them. I use to think that my knowledge was useless, stupid, and not good enough. In short, I use to think that any knowledge I had to share couldn’t possibly make a difference in making the world a better place. As a boy and a young man, I shied away from sharing my knowledge because I was sure that it just didn’t matter.  As a young adult, that thought was so deeply ingrained in me, I could hear a voice saying “you’re stupid” in my head, guiding my actions and guarding my interactions with others. I use to have a hard time fighting my way past it – and sometimes I still do. But I’ve learned some valuable lessons when I’ve been brave enough to open up and share my knowledge with others. And from sharing my own knowledge, others have shared their knowledge with me from their own life experiences, and we have created new knowledge together.

It’s really unfortunate that we don’t spend more time sharing our knowledge with others.  While I’m sure there are some people who feel as awkward as I use to feel, as long we are sincere and tell others we value what they have to say, no matter how “limited” they may think their own knowledge is, most people will appreciate the opportunity to share their own knowledge from their own life experiences. As these are the moments when we can learn to make the world a better place.

Sharing knowledge with others with this intention in mind people can help us all to contribute in a very real and very positive way to the world in which we live, for the more people there are in the world who feel their knowledge is valued, the more people there will be in the world who are able to share their knowledge with others – before it’s too late!

Growing Kinder Through Knowledge

knowledge kindness

As we share knowledge for social benefit we grow wiser. As we grow wiser, we grow kinder.  Knowledge inspires knowledge. Kindness inspires kindness. All go together. This doesn’t mean that all knowledge sharing leads to kindness, or that as we grow older we grow kinder. Sharing knowledge to make the world a better place and growing kinder can happen at any age.

Sharing Knowledge As The Greatest Value Of All

I believe that the sign of a truly great person is his or her use of knowledge – no matter how extensive or limited – to make the world a better place.  I don’t mean knowledge that is necessarily from an academic degree. But rather, people who have a feeling that the knowledge they have through life experience – techniques, ideas, inspirations, how-to’s, thoughts, skills and points of view – can be used for good and not harm for making the world a better place.  And they see this knowledge in every other person – and the possibility of sharing such knowledge with every other person for social benefit.

One of my great goals in life is to bring greater awareness to knowledge mobilization (KMb) – sharing knowledge and creating new knowledge for social benefit.  I feel that if I’m able to share my knowledge and learn from the knowledge of others to make the world a better place, my life will become much easier, and such knowledge sharing can begin to contribute to greater understanding worldwide. If I truly value knowledge, I will see the incredible value of knowledge in every single person that I meet, no matter what their current state, position or academic standing in life.  If I’m able to see this, I can be a much more effective knowledge mobilizer, and I can help people see the value of their own knowledge – believing in it and sharing it to make the world a better place.

Since I find sharing knowledge and receiving knowledge to be so important, I try to remind myself constantly that every moment is an opportunity for knowledge sharing to make the world a better place.

If I don’t take opportunities to seek out the knowledge of others and only take credit for the knowledge I share in my life, then I really have no chance at making the world a better place.  I also have little chance of being able to help other people see the value of sharing their own knowledge and understand the importance of sharing this knowledge for greater benefit.  One of the most important aspects of our collective humanity is that we all have some knowledge to share – it’s how we share it for good or harm that makes the difference. Knowledge sharing or knowledge mobilization (KMb) is a key that opens up greater opportunities for this world on an extremely valuable level – for sharing knowledge to make the world a better place is the greatest value of all.

Knowledge: As If You Were To Die Tomorrow

If you were to die tomorrow, what is the knowledge you want to pass on to someone else?

Today’s Knowledge Inspiration: Finding The Link Between Knowledge & Happiness

Is there a link between being happy and having knowledge? Yes.

But it’s up to us to recognize that each person’s knowledge – no matter how lacking in knowledge one thinks one is – can contribute to our understanding of the world around us. Each experience and each of our abilities is a moment of knowledge. All we have to do is share what we know – no matter how insignificant we might think it is. It’s still knowledge that can be contributed.

When we connect that understanding of personal knowledge – personally developed from individual life experience and ability – to the overall knowledge of the world we live in, we can find happiness. We can find that connection between being happy and having knowledge – by acknowledging our own connection of individual knowledge to overall knowledge.

This attitude allows each person to recognize their own worth and contribution to knowledge for the benefit of society, and find fulfillment. Every life has meaning. Out of meaning comes knowledge. From individual knowledge comes overall human knowledge – and connects us to the world around us.
