The Source of Riches

education | BIGG SuccessIn his great book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells us the root word of the term “educate”. It comes from the Latin word “educo”, which means…

…to develop from within.

School and learning

While we believe strongly in formal education, this reveals why “going to school” and “learning” aren’t the same.

You can go to school and never learn a thing about getting rich.

You don’t have to go to school to learn what you really need to know.

In fact, you won’t learn everything you need to know in school. And you won’t learn the most important things for reaching BIGG success.

Now let us reiterate – we strongly support higher learning. It’s just that you can’t delegate your own education.

You and you alone are responsible for it. Never stop learning.

So you don’t need four walls and a whiteboard. You do need an open mind and a willing spirit.

You need a thirst for knowledge. Knowledge that you can use.

The source of riches

It also shows why we often don’t learn. We don’t learn because we don’t internalize it.

Information has to be absorbed. Then you have to filter it so you understand its relevancy. You test it by taking action. You learn more.

Slowly the information turns to knowledge. In other words, learning is a process. You just can’t flip on a switch and start learning.

But Napoleon Hill promised us that we could think and grow rich. The source of those riches is knowledge that is directed, organized and applied.

How do you learn?
