The Power is...
Knowing how things work...
My favorite saying is "Based on the knowledge that I had at the time I made my decision, I have no regrets."
Did you ever ask yourself after you made a decision if you would have been better off having more knowledge? Thinking about how the outcome would have been different or better? The following is a list of where to obtain information to become knowledgeable.
- Some of knowledge is knowing where to find it.
- Ask lots of questions
- Have an understanding of the subject so you can ask the right questions
- The Internet search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc. to read information which can also lead to other resources.
- The Library has plenty of reference materials and also computers you can utilize.
My philisophy is that the more you know the better you can make choices that resognate with you as an individual.
Making informed decisions will provide you with confidence.
Example: Buying a car. When purchasing a car you have an idea in your mind what you need to accomplish your day to day use of the vehicle. If you had a family of 6, you wouldn't necessarily buy a car that only sat 5 people, unless it was your second car or your children were older and not going to be accompanying you with every event, visiting or trip. Maybe you need a car with a big trunk, luggage racks, power windows, handicap accessible, etc. The more information you obtain the easier it is to make the right decision. Now lets look at the financing. Did you know you can negotiate not only the interest rate, but the number of payments you want to make? Did you know that you can negotiate the bottom line cost of the vehicle? Again, do your research to make car buying a good experience.
