Chapter 5 - Specialized Knowledge
Hill writes “There is no fixed price for sound IDEAS! Back of all IDEAS is
specialized knowledge. Unfortunately, for those who do not find
riches in abundance, specialized knowledge is more abundant and
more easily acquired than IDEAS. The IDEA is the main thing.
Specialized knowledge may be found just around the corner—any corner!”
George and I are in the process of renovating our home. We are taking out
carpets, painting, laying down flooring, repairing windows, etc.
George had been able to do all this before, but now that his memory
is seriously failing, he only knows to do what is shown him. With that
I had to figure out some things for myself. So where does one go
to find that specialized knowledge? YouTube of course. They have
videos on just about anything you need to know.
We picked up paint and the saleslady had specialized knowledgeable about what
kind we needed. We layed the flooring and we then needed help with the
windows as some were leaking. Where did I find specialized knowledge
to get that done? My brother-in-law came to visit and he does repairs
as his job. Our windows do not leak anymore.
As Hill stated "Specialized knowledge may be found just around the
corner—any corner! It doesn't matter if it is YouTube, a brother-in-law
or a lady at a paint store.
Adam Grant stated "The mark of higher education isn't the knowledge you
accumulate in your head. It's the skills you gain about how to learn."
This is true in building our business.
Mentoring for Free teaches us skills. Skills we need in building our
Business. Finding and knowing is not enough, action must follow.
Vince Lombardi said "The difference between a successful person and
others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather
a lack of will."
Do we have the will to do what it takes to be successful in any area of our lives?
Albert Einstein said "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."
Specialized knowledge can be found anywhere, and the knowledge, ideas, and imagination
only bring results if we have the will to do.
Are you ready to USE this network marketing truth or are you going to continue buying book after book hoping something will work for you? Also the late Sarah Thompson mentioned the difference between a wish and a decision. A wish is something that you say that you will do but never do it, but a decision is to say that you will do it and then do it. Then you cut all other options out!
