Better and Best
Now that you've realized that you are "using it" in your life right now, ask yourself the question, "How can I use it better in my life?" Let me give you an example.
Let's say you come across someone giving a talk on how to become financially free. As you listen, you may find yourself saying, "I know that, I've heard people say this stuff before."
Before going any further you would ask yourself, "Do I really know that?"
If you find yourself continuing to say and think that you know that, ask yourself, "If I know and have already heard that, where have I applied or am using in my life what this person is saying about becoming financially free?"
Then after you answer that question ask, "How can I use the information this person is saying about becoming financially free...how can I use it better in my life?" By answering this question, you'll be able to expand on what you're learning and come up with your own unique way of applying the information.
