No quite. Not so fast.
Just to correct you, because you admitted to your score, 90% or 10 over the passing requirement, you did not know everything. You took short cuts. By taking short cuts you admittedly cheated yourself of the full educational process that will limit your knowledge in the real world that tests applicants.
As for knowledge is power. I disagree. Knowledge is the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. You learned from practical experience as did I.
Power In physics is the amount of energy transferred or converted per unit time. In business, power is the ability to influence others. Your peers in the industry and prospective clients in the real world.
That is a caveat for too many home inspectors to which around 80% of will not maintain a successful business model yet still retain the title CPI.
I am not trying to put you down. I am trying to make you realize short cuts have consequences as does self boastfulness. It might impress you, but its your colleagues and peers that measure your real worth. As well you must impress business and prospective clients in the real business world were you will be ultimately measured.
Personally, I am just a cog in a big rotating real world wheel call the home inspection industry. As for power. To me, it is an overall inner energy that I consume daily to sustains ‘my need’ to move myself deeper into my business. As for measuring the power I was able to archive and emit. I read how it effects others. No more, no less.
Thank you for your openness.
I wish you much success in all your endeavors.
