PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OR OBSERVATIONS

The Fourth Step toward Riches

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.  The faculties of the great universities 

possess, in the aggregate, practically every form of general

knowledge known to civilization.  Most of the professors have

but little or no money.  They specialize in teaching knowledge,

but they do not specialize in the organization, or the use, of

knowledge.

 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.

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.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform

for all of us to grow into the people that we were meant to become.

Love to all
