Chapter 5 – Manifesting A Lifetime of Specialized Knowledge!
“It is He who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise And [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding!” Daniel 2:21 (AMP)
“And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him— The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and strength, The Spirit of knowledge and of the [reverential and obedient] fear of the Lord—” Isaiah 11:2 (AMP)
“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.” Napoleon Hill
Since starting this cycle of the Think and Grow Rich Lessons, the thinking process in my brain has accelerated my ability to earn more than income. The skill of learning has been a part of my life since the beginning. I have watched my skills make me some income, but not at the level to be comfortable, yet. By using the principles and self-disciple (and I’m still working on this one) my ability to attract those I seek is happening daily.
Mr. Hill is quick to let us know that having student loan debt is not necessary to acquire wealth. We learn all our lives. It is only when we start to apply it towards the benefit of humanity do we begin to access the manifestation of riches into our lives. My relationships are better. My leadership is better, thus making my life richer. The mastery of the application of all my skills will activate the money I seek.
Looking at the scriptures lets me know that God never intended for any of us to be poor. 3 John 2 tells us, "Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually]" As I continue to develop better thinking that lines up with my God-given purpose, the more abundance is manifesting. I will seek God and the abundance of His love to allow the physical manifestation of untold riches in every aspect of my life: physically, spiritually, and monetarily. It is up to me to continue to live and learn. Thank you, Linda and Michael, for all you do to help us to grow and think richer. Thank you, mastermind friends, for all the open thinking we do in our weekly discussion.
