This week I’ve been focusing on the virtue of specialized knowledge, the fourth step toward riches in Think and Grow Rich. Specialized knowledge, according to Openknowledge.net, is “a type of knowledge that only few people possess, and which is characterized by an understanding of a highly complex field of expertise.” People who have specialized knowledge in a certain field are generally called specialists. In contrast, an example for general knowledge would be knowing who is president of your country at the moment, while an example for specialized knowledge would be knowing how to create a titanium alloy.
To be of benefit, specialized knowledge must be organized and intelligently directed, through practical plans of action, to the definite end of accumulating that which one desires. A lack of specialized knowledge may be overcome by use of a Mastermind Group…two or more people working in perfect harmony. The Master Key Master Mind Alliance is one such group.
This week we have been focusing on acts of kindness. Wikipedia defines kindness as “a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions. Research has shown that acts of kindness do[es] not only benefit receivers of the kind act, but also the giver, as a result of the release of neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of contentment and relaxation when such acts are committed.”
It’s very easy to spot acts of kindness if one merely looks and sees. I found this video which shows many acts of kindness and wanted to share with you. How many acts of kindness can you spot? Please leave a comment.
Door To Door is one on the most inspirational movies I’ve ever seen. Persistent and determined, Bill Porter sets out to become a salesman, despite having cerebral palsy. I have compiled all 7 parts here for convenience in viewing.

In Week 13 we continue our study of the importance of thought in our daily lives. A comparison of physical thought and spiritual thought was illustrated. As we learned in prior weeks that we must give more to get more, this may be done with the simple process of thought. Thinking good thoughts of happiness and harmony for others will naturally manifest themselves in our own lives. This also supports the law of attraction which reveals itself by returning to us the things we think about; the feelings, the situations, the outcomes.
May your week be filled with greatness and abundance. As 2013 comes to a close, may you be blessed with the Master Key that will lead to a happy and prosperous new year.
Week 12 of the Master Key reminded me that…
We must keep a clear and sharp focus on whatever “success” is for us. Regardless of how much action we take, unless we keep the ultimate goal in view, we will not attain that goal. This is much like a carpenter building a house. Unless he keeps the design of the house in clear view, it makes no difference how many nails, boards and shingles he assembles, he’ll end up with nothing more than a huge disarray of materials.
Three keys to success:
1. Knowledge of your power
2. The courage to dare
3. The faith to do
Persistence is defined as the quality of continuing to do something in spite of difficulty or opposition.
In week 11 we learn that there are only four habits leading to the realization of a goal:
- A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment.
- A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.
- A mind closed tightly against negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
- A mastermind alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.
By utilizing the techniques in the MKMMA course, we are able to dramatically make a change in our lives. Everyone is experiencing awesome results with these methods. Personally, I am getting more done; taking care of things that I’ve put off. Doing things now just comes as a natural action.
It doesn’t matter whether a task is simple or complex, it’s the completion that matters. This creates habits and helps us overcome the fears and barriers that we “think” are there when we desire to do something.
