Quarantine. Pandemic. Vaccines. Polio. Family.

Think and Grow Rich: The Story of Napoleon Hill

In 1937 Napoleon Hill published “Think and Grow Rich.” Arguably one the most influential personal development and self-improvement books ever written. Most of what has been written since 1937, in my opinion, is derivative of this remarkable book. And Napoleon Hill himself stands on the shoulders of James Allen in “As a Man Thinketh” as well as Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus and the stoics, Socrates and so many more. His 17 Principles of Personal Achievement have been the guidepost and...

The great Zig Ziglar said, “You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough people get what they want in life.” Something that has been said quite a lot lately is “We’re all in this together.” It’s a bit overused these days, but it just may be one of the great truths in life and maybe another key to prosperity.
