With involvement comes relevance. With relevance comes interest. With interest comes learning. With learning comes knowledge. With knowledge comes positive change.

Think about the importance of the progression of the thoughts in the previous paragraph as they relate to you, personally. Let’s take each on its own and dig a little deeper to see how the ultimate point can benefit you.

It seems most of us seek a lot of things throughout our lives not the least of which is a sense of relevance to the world around us. We want to feel that we are impacting that world in a positive way. There is only one way to be impactful on people and the world, in general. You have to be willing to participate in the world around you in every way you can. In short, your admission price to achieving relevance is involvement.

With the personal relevance generated through involvement, comes a greater interest in the world around you. The light bulbs start popping on for you. You are able to understand people and the ways of the world on a whole new level. The popping on of the light bulbs in your mind is a metaphor for learning.

As you learn, your depth and breadth of knowledge grows. It’s an over used cliché but absolutely true…”Knowledge is power.” If you want to be more powerfully interested and interesting, then work on your level of knowledge about anything of passionate interest to you.

Frankly, that is one of the overriding benefits of access to the worldwide web. I don’t think there is anything that cannot be researched, learned and integrated into one’s knowledge base through the intelligent use of the internet.

Last but by no means least, you are able to positively change your life through the acquisition and use of greater knowledge. Drive yourself to get “in the know” and the impact you can have will make the world a better place for all of us.
