Power is a driving force – it influences and shapes everything.
In our competitive world, to be powerful is to have the ability to settle benefits in one’s favor and burden others.
However, our idea of power has largely been that of political power – yes, that’s good power too.
But one key form of power you need to consistently shape opinions, drive acceptance and lead is “KNOWLEDGE” (expertise).
Yes, we underestimate the power of know-how. We think it is normal to know and to become an expertise.
But, inherent in knowledge is the most powerful tool of control, leadership and favor.
So pursue KNOWLEDGE and be sound, so that when next you are at the table, you will feel and express power (influence).
You need power and let it be knowledge base – and know how to use it.
