Specialized Knowledge,learning from Napoleon Hill lesson One.

Starting today and for who knows how long, I am going to take a piece of work from Napoleon Hill and explain it here everyday. Each day will start off with a quote as well :).

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."
Henry David Thoreau

In this world there is only two kinds of knowledge, one is General Knowledge and the other is specialized. General Knowledge no matter how great in quantity is of little use in the accumulation of money. Knowledge does not attract money, unless organized and intelligently directed through plans of action with a definite end of accumulation of money. Many people believe knowledge is power, it is nothing of the sort. Knowledge is only potential power, it becomes power when organized into definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end. Schools should teach students how to organize and use knowledge instead of just teaching information. A educated man is one that does not know everything about something, an educated man is a man who has developed his mind to work in a way where he can use his knowledge to gain what he seeks.

Learn as much as you can, but also learn how to direct that knowledge to gain what you desire. Follow this and your on your way of mastering the keys to success.
