This is not really a missing link it’s just a very misused one. For most people, lack of knowledge can be overcome. They buy a book, buy an e-book, read articles, listen to audios. Then they put them away, never for use again. They rely on their already overcrowded brain to remember everything they have just read or heard. And that’s the biggest problem with knowledge most people never really remember it.
So let’s say you’ve bought the latest e-book by one of the Internet superstars. You print it out and actually read it all the way through (which is probably more than most people do with e-books!). You finish it. Then you put it in a drawer, or maybe even dispose of it. You have just made the mistake that all people who fail to be successful make: You don’t translate the information into a format that you completely understand.
Every book ever written is just somebody’s opinion put on paper their own personal view around the globe, or of Internet marketing, or of multilevel marketing.
They, and they alone, are the only ones who know exactly what they mean by what they write. We all view the world differently from any other person. We do this due to the unique experiences and influences we have had up until this very moment. They all act together as a filter that sits in front of everything we view. These are our conditioning influences.
So in order for us to personalize the knowledge that we are trying to take on board, we have to translate the information presented to us into our own language. This may sound a little technical, but all I am really trying to say is this: Never, ever just read a book. Use it!
Make notes in the margin. Use a highlighter pen to remind you of the parts most important to you. Unfortunately, this already sounds like too much hard work to numerous people. They’re the poor ones. I am asking that you then do even more work. Go through the book and write out (preferably in some type of permanent notebook or journal) the highlighted passages and this is the key part in your words! Be it an e-book on Internet marketing, an audiotape on personal development, or a how-to e-zine on writing, translate what you read and hear into your own words! If you do that with every book that you read or tape that you hear, I guarantee that within six months you will have left your peers in the dust.
