CHAPTER 5 SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OR OBSERVATIONS
The Fourth Step toward Riches
There are two types of knowledge, one is general. College professors are good examples of this type of knowledge. Most of them have little or no money. As I learned from my college education, they do not teach how to use the knowledge they teach.
Knowledge alone will not attract money. It must be organized and properly directed through a PLAN OF ACTION and to a DEFINITE END (Chapter 2). Most people think knowledge is power, but only when organized into definite plans of action and directed to a definite end (Chapter 2).
Henry Ford was a good example of knowledge being organized and directed to a definite end. He was educated, but not by college professors. He developed the ability to acquire anything he wanted. He developed Specialized Knowledge in how to build automobiles.
Andrew Carnegie developed specialized knowledge about the steel industry. He did it by using other people's minds.
Thomas Edison was another who learned how to use Specialized Knowledge.
I am learning Specialized Knowledge by following the 13 Steps in Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I started by completing the first 5 steps of Chapter 2 DESIRE, then reading those results twice daily. Then saying the 5 Steps in Chapter 3, FAITH twice daily. The results of these two chapters are woven together, so both are said together.
I am successful and will continue to become more successful because I have the DESIRE and FAITH my results of those two chapters will happen. They will happen because I am on almost all the 8 weekly Mentoring For Free calls. I get nuggets from EVERY call. I am teaching others which help me learn and grow as a leader. I am also training others to become leaders. And I post lessons weekly here in Think and Grow Rich Lessons to learn more and more of how to implement the 13 Steps of Think and Grow Rich.
I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for this opportunity Mentoring For Free presents to anyone willing to do the work and learn specialized knowledge. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy.
I am also grateful to each member of our 8 weekly calls because, on each call, they make up a master mind group as Napoleon Hill recommends and as Michael Dlouhy implemented when creating Mentoring For Free. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You.
