Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Knowledge Opens Doors, But You Have to Step Through

Knowledge Opens Doors, But You Have to Step Through


Motivational Power Quote


Knowledge Opens Doors, But You Have to Step Through


"Teachers open doors.

You enter by yourself."

Chinese Proverb


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Knowledge opens doors, but you have to step through . . . . Ourselves. 

Knowledge alone will not create success as knowledge alone is information.  It becomes how our knowledge and information is applied that determines our success or failure. 

As we increase our knowledge we have the opportunity to new open doors and increase our possibilities of success as a result of our new knowledge.  

Proper application of our knowledge allows us to unlock the door and to step through the door of opportunity.   

When the doors open for us; we are the only one that can take step through the open door of opportunity.

Very true Lou, we cannot control the things that happen in our lives, but we can control how we react and interact to these things. knowledge alone will not guarantee success, applying our knowledge and choosing our path ... that where we will find success.

No matter the advisers you have in life, the books you read, or the people you talk to, it always seems that the best learning experiences are just that, experiences.

We have to use that knowledge don't we?  Great quote.

Hi Lou:

This is a good point.

The bottom line is that we choose whether we educate ourselves.

Hi Lou, It's always important to grow and gain new knowledge.  It is up to us to take the initiative and open up new doors for ourselves.

Isn't that the truth? We hear that knowledge is power - but not until you use it. :)
