This chapter shows us the power of an Idea launched into action using definite plans backed by organized knowledge.
Hill States, First of all, decide the sort of specialized knowledge you require, and The Purpose for which it is needed. To a large extent your major purpose in life, the goal toward which you are working, will help determine what knowledge you need. I call this our "God given Destiny" and it's so much more than one person or one family. It's where we find our place in life, like one piece of a Billion Piece Puzzle being put into place. Before we were just another piece scattered with all the others, But now we are in place and add to the bigger picture. I believe without this first foundational truth it's difficult to make progress with the rest of Hill's steps toward riches / our destiny.
In chapter one we learned that thoughts or Ideas are things that have not taken a physical form yet. In chapter two Hill tell's us that we must have a burning desire to transmute them into the world we see and he gives us a clear plan to start this process. Then faith is discussed and how faith can be created and strengthened by auto-suggestion or saying something with emotion (really Believing it) over and over.
Now we come to specialized knowledge and I ask myself why are we talking about this only 5 chapters into the book. The answer jumped right out in front of me, the reason this is so important is because the Thoughts and Ideas that we receive form the ether can be so much bigger than what we've prepared yourselves for. This topic is perfectly placed in the correct order because when we receive an Idea that's much larger than we expected or prepared for we'll need to start gathering some specialized knowledge if we choose to accept the challenge.
