“THERE are two kinds of knowledge. One is general, the other is specialized. General knowledge, no matter how great
in quantity or variety it may be, is of but little use in the accumulation of money... 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.” - Hill
Knowledge in general is not useful. It may be entertaining, or interesting or even impressive. But what is the point, if it
doesn't move You toward Your goals.
For example: I am a Professional Network Marketer. Now, for years I have been an avid reader, especially of Western
novels. I, also, like guns. As a result, I know the difference between a Sharp's “Big 50”, a Springfield, and a Spencer
rifle. I can, also, tell You the difference between a carbine, a rifle, and a musket. I even know the difference between a
Sharps and a Sharps-Borschadt. Now, granted, this may help me gain the confidence of a gun enthusiast, but really,
what does this have to do with my business.
But, I can learn the best opening sentences to gain “know like and trust”. Or, I could learn the color personalities (so
I understand people and know how to talk to them). Maybe I study and learn how to properly give a presentation, or
learn some stories, about myself or someone I know, so I can help my customers understand the benefits of my products.
And the list goes on. These are SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE.
As a mentor, I can help others understand and learn how to use this plus much more SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
taught here at MFF.
We have to decide what it is we want. Is it an encyclopedic knowledge of guns, characters in novels, movie stars, etc.
Or, do we want to be the best mentor, network marketer, or _____________ we can be. YOU DECIDE.
Thanks to everyone in this mastermind, especially Linda & Michael Dlouhy and Bob Shoaf, for the contributions you
make to my growth and for allowing me to contribute to Yours.
