SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OR OBSERVATIONS

The Fourth Step toward Riches

 Mr. Hill states,” THERE are two kinds of knowledge. One is general, the other is specialized. General knowledge, no matter how great in quantity or variety it may be, is of but little use in the accumulation of money. The faculties of the great universities possess, in the aggregate, practically every form of general knowledge known to civilization. Most of the professors have but little or no money. They specialize on teaching knowledge, but they do not specialize on the organization, or the use of knowledge”.


Although probably very true when written, today, in a World were almost all General knowledge is just a key tap away and because of recent vast increases in University fees, market forces are bringing about significant changes within many of the Universities. Students are no longer prepared to rack up debts, often as high as £50.000 plus, to find they have been ill prepared for the real world of work, and are beginning to demand they be taught by tutors and professors who have demonstrated an ability to used their knowledge out in the real World to provide the education which will lead to the opportunities they feel they are entitled to be readied for.


In other words, they are now demanding not just the opportunity to gain knowledge but also to spend time learning to organize, use and apply that knowledge in a way that will help them make their own mark on the World.


Sadly though, in all this ‘customer led’ drive for change, speaking with my own children, who attend different Universities, there still seems to be no move towards encouraging the use and value of Mastermind Groups and the value of pooling talent and ideas to multiply the power of specialized knowledge seems not to be emphasized.  

The stories of Henry Ford, Napoleon Hill and Andrew Carnegie are used to bring home the incredible power of working with our own specially selected mastermind group, some live and some long past but still relevant. All three recognized ideas and imagination as the fuel of advancement and used their Mastermind members to help turn those ideas into well-formed plans and reality.


Our Mentoring for Free Mastermind Group has the huge advantage that anyone from any walk of life can tap into and learn from the practical experiences of a team of expert professionals in the knowledge they will be listened to, coached and guided without ever being made to look or feel in any way uncomfortable – a priceless gift, and all for the price of sharing your own brilliance and ideas when ready.
