That makes me laugh! Of course it isn’t a crock of hooey. I have made Napoleon Hill’s “Think And Grow Rich” a focus of study over the past several weeks. I am sure you are aware that I am seriously pro “law-of-attraction.” The information in this book sets very comfortably with my way of thinking.
If you like coming away from a good book feeling edified and changed forever for the better I recommend reading this book that is the effort of a brilliant man who dedicated his life to gathering and compiling information about applying your mind to your actions to the benefit of not only your business but your life.
He is an excellent illustrator of the laws of thought and generating relationships.
I have to say that it is the beginning of “Think and Grow Rich” that grabs me and keeps me reading…every time I read it.
I just love the story about the man who decided that he wanted to mine gold. He staked a claim and got busy and FAILED! The story isn’t ABOUT the failure though, it is about what he learned from that failure and how he applied what he learned to his life and how that facilitated his great success in the insurance industry.
The fact that he figured out how to learn from his big mistakes is huge enough, but the most inspiring part to me was the ultimate advice of: “Go to an expert if you don’t know what you’re doing.”
It just isn’t a really great idea to go into a project when you are an amateur and expect to be successful on your own. Ask and expert. Observe a Master. Apprentice under someone who has already been through the learning curve and come out on top.
