The Power Of Shared Knowledge!

So what have you learned and shared with others? please comment and share with us.
About 7 years ago I started on a personal growth journey.
When I look back, I think I was always on a journey of growth, however I wasn’t aware and 7 years ago I became very conscious of my journey and it was at this point it was more directed and purposeful.
I had this hunger and desire to learn more and then as I learned more I wanted to learn faster. The more I learned the more I wanted to learn. I was like a kid in a candy shop, I was excited and passionate, It was like I lifted the lid on something but didn’t know what it was.
My mentor at the time Dale was such a patient teacher, hard on me, but patient and only too willing to share all she had learned. This was a clear demonstration on how the power of sharing knowledge can change peoples lives. It changed mine!
Early on in the journey I wanted to tell every one everything, as I learn't it. I didn’t share what I didn’t understand as I was afraid of looking stupid. When I got it, and the lights went on, I wanted to tell the world. Even those that didn’t want to hear.
I learned about Jim Rohn and Anthony Robbins and then I started to understand Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and attended a Christopher Howard Seminar and I continued University in the car (also known as learning on the go) and found more great speakers, I borrowed books and tapes and then when I could I invested in programs, then I started meeting more like minded people who shared a similar journey to me. It was amazing to me how all this stuff was in the world and I had never experienced this before the age of 33.
Then I met another mentor Caron, who has taught me so much in such a short period of time. Not only did Caron teach me how to learn more about myself and my journey, she also showed me the art of patients, gratitude, and more importantly tapping into my inner resources. One of the many lessons that were reinforced is the Power of Sharing Knowledge.
Sharing knowledge is one of the most priceless gifts you could ever give. Someone’s life can change with just that one gift alone. I also believe that giving starts the receiving process.
I have recently experienced this with two of my students, where I shared a bit of knowledge and it has had an incredible impact on this life and how they look at future possibilities. This truly inspires me to continue on my journey and to keep sharing knowledge.
Till next time, keep sharing. Donna
