In this episode, you can listen to Think and Grow Rich Chapter 5 called “Specialized Knowledge.” This is Napoleon Hill’s fourth step toward riches. In it, Hill explains there are two kinds of knowledge: general and specialized.
One thing I’d like to point out about this chapter 5 is this…
If you feel inferior because you don’t have a a lot of schooling, this is a must-read chapter!
There are a lot of gems in this section, but Hill really drives home the point that an “educated” person is not necessarily one who has an abundance of knowledge. Instead, Hill writes:
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.
Napoleon Hill goes on to describe stories of notable people that illustrate this point. For example, Thomas A. Edison only had three months of “schooling,” Henry Ford once went to trial to prove he was not ignorant, and Andrew Carnegie didn’t know about the technical end of the steel business (despite leading the steel industry in the 19th century).
It’s an inspiring chapter! Enjoy!!
