Napoleon Hill’s A Year of Growing Rich

I’m working my way through this book and I’ve just read the section on Sincerity.

I was inspired by this short anecdote.

A friend of Abraham Lincoln once told him that his enemies were saying terrible things about him behind his back.

“I don’t care what they say,” exclaimed Lincoln, “so long as they’re not telling the truth.” Sincerity of purpose made Lincoln immune to fear of criticism.

The book itself is in bite-size pieces, each section meant to be read multiple times per week before moving on to the next section.

I like the messages, so I’ll probably read it faster than over a year.

This next great quote is from the section titled “No One Drifts to Success”.

If you want to achieve success, make today the day you stop drifting. Decide upon a definite goal. Write it down. Commit it to memory. Decide exactly how you plan to achieve it. Then begin by putting the plan into action immediately.

– Napoleon Hill

All good advice.  I couldn’t phrase it better, so I’ll leave you with the last lines from Week 1 as a parting gift.

“Your future is what you make it. Decide now what it shall be.”

– Napoleon Hill
