Chapter 5 - Specialized Knowledge

Hill tells us "KNOWLEDGE will not attract money, unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, 
through practical PLANS OF ACTION, to the DEFINITE END of accumulation of money. Lack
of understanding of this fact has been the source of confusion to millions of people 
who falsely believe that “knowledge is power.” It is nothing of the sort! Knowledge 
is only potential power. It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into 
definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end."

A lot of people belive if they get a lot of education they will have the power
to make a lot of money.  

Hill also tells us "This “missing link” in all systems of education known to civilization today, 
may be found in the failure of educational institutions 
to teach their students HOW TO ORGANIZE AND USE KNOWLEDGE AFTER THEY ACQUIRE IT.

That word educated is derived from the Latin word “educo,” meaning to educe, 
to draw out, to DEVELOP FROM WITHIN. An educated man is not, necessarily, 
one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man 
is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, 
or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others."

Sometimes the more education someone gets the more "common sense" seems to go
"out the window" as they say.  

We have a perfect example of getting the right knowledge and using 
this knowledge to acquire anything in our mentor, Michael Dlouhy.  He did not
aquire a lot of formal education but he has educated himself and 
"developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, 
or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others."

We have heard the many stories of his success in all areas of his life and
we can use his eduation to help ourselves in acquiring anything we want into
our lives, as long as we stay within the right bounds of not violating the 
rights of others.  

He has also given us a blueprint, which if we are coachable, and implement 
into what we are doing, we can have success not only in our business but with
all the training available at Mentoring For Free we are able to have that success in all
the areas of our life as well. 

But there is  "catch". 

We have to be here. participating to enable us to acquire that knowledge!
