If you are wondering where I have been the last few days, well let me tell you...I have been buried in Napoleon's Hill book "The Magic Ladder to Success". I am in the process of reading every book that I can find that Napoleon Hill has written.
So far, I have read "Think and Grow Rich". The thing about Napoleon Hill is that you have to do more than just read his books you have to put what you have read in to action.
Truthfully, I am definitely seeing a difference in my mental state as to how I view things. I am more positive, focused and goal oriented.
The great thing about "The Magic Ladder to Success" is that it gives you a great outline as to how to improve yourself as it relates to improving your personality, building self-confidence, gaining self control and so much more.

- I ask nothing of any person without having a right to that for which I ask.
- I enter into no arguments with people over trivial matters.
- I spread the sunshine of optimism and good cheer wherever and whenever I can.
