Building our personal development skills requires adding the elements of action and practice to our study program.

As we learn principles from educational materials related to our personal growth programs we will become frustrated by the lack of results unless we take action and practice those principles.

No matter which area of your self-improvement program you are working on, whether a practical skill such as learning a new discipline or making efforts in more abstract areas such as your emotions and attitudes, practice is essential.

Following are some quotes as thoughts for today on the relationship of skills and practice:

“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.” – Anton Chekhov

“We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same.” – Martha Graham

“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice.” – Ray Bradbury
