CHAPTER 5 SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OR OBSERVATIONS

The Fourth Step toward Riches

There are two kinds of knowledge; general and specialized.  General knowledge is the kind learned in universities. A good percentage of students entering universities do not finish with a degree. Many of those who do get degrees, do not work in that field. In most all cases, a graduate must be further trained by their employer.

A good example of the kind of training received in universities is demonstrated by the fact that most professors have little or no money.

Some mistakenly believe that "knowledge is power."  

Napoleon Hill states, the "missing link" between general and specialized knowledge ", "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."

Mentoring For Free has solved the "missing link."

We have an excellent system here in Mentoring For Free that will teach a person the specialized knowledge needed and help them put what they learn into practice by getting the tool mentioned in Chapter 7 of Success In 10 Steps.

Here in Mentoring For Free each of us has as Henry Ford had, people around us who can help us with the knowledge we need, be it general or specialized.

Andrew Carnegie also stated he had people who could help him with specialized knowledge. He had a Mastermind group.

As we see here in Mentoring For Free these 8 weekly calls that are free and the tool mentioned above is so inexpensive anyone can afford it. As Napoleon Hill says, specialized knowledge is among the most plentiful and the cheapest forms of knowledge. Compare that to the university costs.

We should be sharing this system with anyone who wishes to improve their personal life as well as their business life.

We must develop a "WHY" that brings us to tears, a DESIRE that creates a passion so great nobody can stop us. These Think and Grow Rich Lessons should have 10 times the number of lessons posted. Why are there not that many? Michael has a list of 100 excuses. Give him a number 1 to 100. He'll give You the excuse. Any excuse will do. How You do anything, is how You do everything.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their foresight, persistence and their awareness of how to create a proven, team system anyone can use to learn specialized knowledge. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy.

I am grateful to each member who comes to the weekly calls and helps to create a Mastermind group per Napoleon Hill's recommendation. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You.
