PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OR OBSERVATIONS
The Fourth Step toward Riches
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 under-
standing 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.
This "missing link" in all systems of education known to
civilization today may be found in the failure of educational
institutions to teach their students HOW TO ORGANIZE, AND
USE KNOWLEDGE AFTER THEY ACQUIRED IT.
Andrew Carnegie stated that he, personally, knew nothing about
the technical end of the steel business; moreover, he did not particularly
care to know anything about it. "The specialized knowledge which he
required for the manufacture and marketing of steel, he found
available through the individual units of his MASTER MIND GROUP.
The accumulation of great fortunes calls for POWER, and power is
acquired through highly organized and intelligently directed specialized
knowledge, but that knowledge does not, necessarily, have to be in the
possession of the man who accumulates the fortune.
The preceding paragraph should give hope and encouragement
to the man with ambition to accumulate a fortune, who has not
possessed himself of the necessary "education" to supply such
specialized knowledge as he may require. Men sometimes go through
life suffering from "inferiority complexes" because they are not men of
"education" "The Man who can organize and direct a "Master Mind"
group of men, who possess knowledge useful in the accumullation of
money is just as much a man of education as any man in the group.
REMEMBER THIS, if you suffer from a feeling of inferiority because
your schooling has been limited.
Thomas A. Edison and Henry Ford, each had little formal schooling,
however, neither let that lack of formal schooling stop them
Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for
all of us to learn and grow into the people that we were meant to become.
Love to all
