The primary source of value today is knowledge. Since there is no limit to the amount of knowledge you can acquire, there is no limit to the amount of value that you can create.You can start from wher- ever you are, no matter what your background, and begin to in- crease your mental assets.You can start work today on improving your ability to perform and get results for which others will pay.
The wonderful thing about knowledge is that it can be repro- duced hundreds of thousands, even millions of times without losing its value. It is the one commodity that can actually be infinite in its application. If you or someone else comes up with a new idea to do something faster or better, that idea can be spread around the world in no time at all, and be in the hands of millions of other people who can also use it to improve their lives and work. And you have lost nothing. The idea still has its original value to you. This is ab- solutely incredible.
