How to Apply Your New Knowledge

Have you ever attended a class or training and left with a great sense of knowledge and enthusiasm to apply what you just learned? But then as you go to apply your new knowledge you\’ve forgotten everything you learned and can\’t seem to apply it? Maybe it has something to do with fundamental beliefs or knowledge that has been built in to us as normal and real. Since our beliefs control our behaviors, if we can\’t change our beliefs then how can we change our behavior and apply our new knowledge or belief?

As humans what we believe as truth is without question truth to us and will determine how we respond to situations that occur around us. These truths create feelings in us that cause us to swing into action, and our actions support our belief of what is true. However there may be times when what we believe as truth may not actually be realistic. So when we learn something new it may not jive with what we think is truth and therefore we can\’t act on the new reality because we\’re stuck in our own belief.

The only way we can accept a new truth is if we realize that perhaps our belief isn\’t realistic. For example let\’s say that we learn that to teach others to become leaders we need to allow them to make their own choices and stop doing everything for them. But the problem is we grew up learning that a good leader did everything for their students so that the students could follow their example. The hardest part is realizing that our belief needs to be revisited. We may not even realize that this is why we have trouble applying our new knowledge.

Our behavior is normal to us. Our actions are based on what we believe to be normal. If we learn something new and can\’t seem to apply it, perhaps it\’s because it doesn\’t work with what we believe to be normal. We want to surround ourselves with people who have our same beliefs so we feel normal. And as a result we are making a costly error in not realizing that what we believe to be normal isn\’t realistic with what we just learned and are trying to apply to our lives.

To make a change try surrounding yourself with people who are applying the knowledge you desire. It may be very uncomfortable at first since their beliefs may not completely work with yours. But if you truly want to have new knowledge and be able to apply it, surround yourself with people who will be able to help you change your fundamental beliefs of what is real so that you will be able to change your actions.

The reason it\’s so difficult to realize we need to take a look at our core \”truths\” is that we\’ve known them to be real for so long. Much of what we believe comes from our childhood before we knew the difference between true and false. We trusted people around us to give us the information we needed without question.

Not to say everything we learned is wrong, just saying that if you want to make a change and apply new knowledge but find it difficult, take a close look at your core beliefs and see if there needs to be an adjustment made in your core truths. Then surround yourself with other people who are applying the knowledge you seek and applying it will soon seem normal and real.

Become the leader you\’re looking for by being willing to make any necessary changes you have to in order to apply new knowledge and teach others what you\’ve learned. Best wishes to you and your business.
