Napoleon Hill stated that
“KNOWLEDGE has no value except that which can be gained from its application toward some worthy end.

”Have you ever learned something that you felt was important but you just weren’t sure what to do with the information? Or perhaps you personally have sought out new information, in hopes it would add value to your skill set or to your business success.

The current economic turmoil, much like the Great Depression that was raging when Napoleon Hill originally published Think and Grow Rich, has forced thousands if not millions of people to find additional or new sources of income.
Many have sought new education that would qualify them for a new position or new business venture.
Hill further discusses KNOWLEDGE by saying, “There are two types of KNOWLEDGE.

1.One is general,
2. the other is specialized.


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.

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.”We continue to hear today the phrase
“KNOWLEDGE is power.”
Each time you hear it, rephrase it to Hill’s accurate version,

“KNOWLEDGE is potential power.
”People must learn, in Hill’s words,
”This is the critical step, which is the ability not only to acquire the KNOWLEDGE but to also learn the critical thinking skills needed to apply that KNOWLEDGE.

The most successful businesses generally do one of two things:
1. Solve a problem;
2. Serve a need.

You can probably think of someone you know who is highly successful. More than likely they sought out and learned SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE in the area of her success, but more important, they then applied it to solve a problem or provide a service for which they was richly rewarded
In today’s environment, it has never been easier to acquire SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE.
Just about anything you want to learn can be found on the Internet, and access to formal education through online platforms and flexible scheduling has made working toward advanced degrees extremely manageable as well.
After validating the source of the information, the question is whether you will dedicate yourself to apply that KNOWLEDGE by taking action to solve a problem or serve a need.

In the process of Covid-19 I have learned something about Taquittee and Had to gain SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE of Myself!

Michael has always Identified me as an Blue Personality. 

I have racing thoughts I tend to want to stay stimulated  always hyper not sitting down long enough to gain complete understanding of anything. I learned to gain any kind of KNOWLEDGE of anything one has to gain KNOWLEDGE of Self is essential. I had to learn about my emotions and how they affect me. My family life and How it affects Taquittee. I had to learn was Taquittee a people pleaser. Why do I feel the way I do. Being in Chicago one must get to know themselves to Make it. We have different communities here each set by race and status. Some are Mixed. But all in all Chicago and the Suburbs are great. Its really Hot with racism on both sides here. So you may ask why write about this in the specialized knowledge part of this Lesson. Well it takes SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE to understand a specialized Person like Taquittee. I'm not one im many and very confused at times. I'm going through a worldwind and many time I want to quit, but My Mother said There is no such word as can't. My lesson may seem babbling because it hard learning all this. But now I know what I know I must begin and continue to grow. Because there are more Taquittees out there and I need the specialized knowledge to help people like me. The woman who keeps fighting even when you've been broken by everything around you even in your own home.  


  I believe I am all the Colors because I Have all the characteristics of them all. I have a tendency to start and Stop when trails become overwhelming. 

Learning yourself is takes a new kind of understanding and Patience in Gaining SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
