Avoid being an Information Junkie

Posted By Shanti Gowans

There is a difference between 'panning for gold' in your email inbox, Facebook or YouTube video, versus going out to the places where what you need is available, in abundance.

It's easy to get sucked into becoming an information junkie. Seminars, books, training courses... there are so many, and they all sound like they 'could' be what you need. So how do you know what's nothing more than a shiny object, as opposed to a resource that will genuinely help you grow to new heights?

Simply sitting through a webinar or training course might feel like you are taking action, but really you are in 'absorb' mode instead of 'act' mode. To benefit from this type of resource, you have to risk investing yourself in the process and working hard, despite the possibility of it not paying off.

 Before you make that investment, pay for those resources with your money or with your equally valuable time, ask yourself:

Does what this teaches align with my goals, my needs, my desires and purpose?

Do I have the time and energy to truly commit myself to this, not only to make a study of it, but to actively implement what I learn?

Do I trust the source? Do they feel real? Do they have real students I can talk to, whose success stories are genuine and realistic representations of the outcomes most hard-working students can expect to achieve?

If you can answer "yes" to each of those questions, then you've found a good investment. If the answer is "no" or "I'm not sure" then you'll serve your life better by looking elsewhere.

Don't become an addict forever seeking one more quick fix. Become the owner of your destiny by choosing well and working hard to achieve lasting success.
