Millions of people falsely believe that “Knowledge is Power.”

Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, it is organized into definite plans of action and directed to a definite end.

An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or it’s equivalent, without violating the rights of others.

Henry Ford once said, “Why I should clutter up my mind with general knowledge, for the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge I require?”

Through the assistance of his ‘Master Mind’ group, Henry Ford had at his command all the specialized knowledge he needed to enable him to become one of the wealthiest men in America. It was not essential that he have this knowledge in his own mind.

Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent, you will require specialized knowledge of service, merchandise, or profession which you intend to offer in return for fortune.

The self discipline one receives rom a definite programme of specialized study makes up to some extent, for the wasted opportunity when knowledge was available without cost. Correspondence schools insist upon prompt payments, whether the student makes good grades or poor, has the effect of causing one to follow through with the course when he would otherwise drop it, giving the greatest lesson on decision, promptness, action and the habit of finishing that which one begins.
