Specialized Knowledge

Personal Update:

So, I haven’t posted in a while, for good reason! I’ve been busy closing on a house and learning new forms of real estate investing.  One of the people I’m working with happened by chance, but I feel so lucky that it did. Talk about a positive and grateful person! What a refreshing partnership compared to the last investment project.

Now for some Napoleon Hill wisdom in Think & Grow Rich:

The Fourth Step Toward Riches: Specialized 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.”


Basically he goes into detail about general knowledge versus specialized knowledge.  That knowledge is not power, but it is potential power.

People who succeed, specialize their knowledge and educated themselves as much as possible.  What they don’t know, they rely on their “master mind” groups as a resource.  Meaning, if you don’t know it- know people who do.


First of all, decide the sort of specialized knowledge you require, and the purpose for which it is needed…your next move requires that you have accurate information concerning dependable sources of knowledge.

Successful men, in all callings, never stop acquiring specialized knowledge related to their major purpose, business, or profession.  Those who are not successful usually make the mistake of believing that the knowledge-acquiring period ends when one finishes school.  The truth is that schooling does but little more than to put one in the way of learning how to acquire practical knowledge.

And on that note… Let’s all vow to be life long learners!

Cheers and Love Life
