Think and Grow Rich

Chapter 5

Specialized Knowledge

Basically, you gain Specialized Knowledge by doing. That is, as Napoleon writes, “Knowledge will not attach money, unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, through practical Plans of Action”.

Doctors go to school for years to gain knowledge, but you can bet that they learned how to do what they do, by doing it. Doctors gain a lot of Specialized Knowledge before they go into their residency programs. A student who wants to become a surgeon will be practicing on cadavers in order to hone their skills. Better to mess up a surgery on someone who is already dead.

Professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, and engineers, practice what they learn before they get that degree go out into the world. And after graduating, there is more learning and applying what they have learned with the help of professionals who know and have done more then they have: A Master mind group.

Henry Ford was one such professional. He didn't have the specialized knowledge for all aspects of running his business. He surrounded himself with people who had the specialized knowledge to run his business-a Master Mind group. He wouldn't have had accumulated the wealth he did, if he had tried to 'know it all' and do it all by himself.

I am so grateful that I found Mentoring for Free Master Mind group. I have surrounded myself with people, such as Michael & Linda, Nathan, Bob and everyone else in our group, who have shared their insights about different topics of Napoleon's book, shared their knowledge of the most effective 'how to's' of running a business, and are generous with their support and encouragement.

Thank you all
