[Music] uh [Music] [Music] at the turn of the 20th century a young reporter napoleon hill was given an assignment to interview steel magnate andrew carnegie a man who despite being an immigrant born into poverty had become one of the wealthiest people in history during the fabled encounter carnegie
00:55
asked hill if he would be willing to dedicate his life to unearthing and documenting the secrets of the most successful people to ever live than to share this formula with the world to give everyone the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and achieve anything they so desire the young reporter accepted carnegie's challenge and began a 25-year journey that would lead him to interview many extraordinary people in 1937 the results of this quest were
01:26
mortalized in think and grow rich in it he'll show that those who succeed do so irrespective of their circumstance that potential is not predicated on age race education gender finances or any other perceived disadvantage it ignited a flame of ambition and helped end the great depression 100 million copies in 80 years later this book continues to inspire ordinary
01:57
people to extraordinary achievement it is the playbook through which countless entrepreneurs innovators and cultural icons unlock their potential creating an alternate reality of abundance purpose and prosperity [Music] thomas why are you not in school
02:44
[Music] [Music] so [Music] your son is a genius this school is too small for him and doesn't have enough good teachers for training him please teach him
03:24
yourself [Music] [Music] i'm gonna have your read to me today so here you go remember where we left off i think we were here so start from there [Music]
04:29
miss edison your son is this adult is mentally slow and unable to think clearly we won't let him come to school anymore it's early headmaster venezuela [Music]
05:08
every life has more than one potential reality every life could it really be true that the only difference between an ordinary life and the life of extraordinary fulfillment is the way we think [Music] a lot of people relate riches just to money riches take in everything in our life it takes in our health our
06:03
relationships with ourself with other people as well as our ability to earn money money by itself is just an idea life should be a rich experience it should never be shallow most people live like minnows in the shallows they got to get out into the deep and that's what hill's material is designed to do [Music] the hardest thing to actually master is faith because faith is the peace that's going to give you the ability to continue
06:35
through the highs and lows and not just achieve one single vision but how to apply it to every aspect of your life because when you get to that level you feel like you're manipulating reality i don't think there was a point along the way of my career where i wasn't seeing myself in a movie of where i was going to be a year out two years out three years out and i saw it like it existed you have to not only picture it but picture it in living color and in great detail and then of course the book
07:06
teaches you if you could imagine it you can accomplish it and i found that to be entirely true if i could imagine it i always got it think and grow rich is relevant because we are always going to have to rely first and foremost in our thoughts to be able to move anything in our world so the concept itself is evergreen it will last the ages timeless principles will be with us in 10 000 years you've got to know them and you've got to practice them it's that simple every
07:35
one of us has inside of us it's innate it's in our dna the desire to do something big one thing i tell people is once you stay with it stay with it stay with it long enough when you break through and you finally make it there's a release of this unbelievable power and new levels of power you break into just by staying with it every adversity carries a seed of a greater good because as a blind person myself i realized okay i got me one big seed of adversity here and i need to find a
08:08
greater good a compensating balance success is how you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror has nothing to do with what the reflection is is are you contributing to society do you feel good about who you are and how you live your life so if you live the normal life what is a normal life 74 or 77 years on earth do the calculus that only equates to 30 000 days on earth time is not running out but your life is
08:39
you've been chosen place your fingerprints on life and make a difference right now that's what it means to be wealthy to me think and grow rich are three words think means the mind and that you need to use the mind to propel you on the path towards success grow means that you need to nourish it and constantly seek the growth and improvement of your mind so the growth and improvement of your mind is what ultimately delivers the payoff which is you become
09:09
rich so to be rich to me means control you're in control of your life being able to do the work that i want to do the way that i want to do it when i want to do it and to the level of excellence that i want to do it at living life by my own accord it's about having freedom freedom to choose where you want to be who you want to be with what you want to do for a living how hard you want to work who you want in your life who you want out of your life it's freedom
09:41
freedom to have your life exactly like you dreamt it to be and actually make it happen that's rich rich is not just synonymous with money rich is synonymous with living life is about an expression of spirit how can i be more artfully expressing who i am fully in a joyous way and accepting life as it comes to me without precondition the difference is night and day once you become successful once you live a rich life financially and every
10:12
other way you'll wonder why didn't i do this sooner this is not a closed club you can have all you want anytime you want and it's just a matter of changing your life by simply changing your mind so the question is never can we the question is will we your future hangs in the balance one of my favorite stories from the whole of think and grow rich is the story of edwin c barnes this is the guy that had absolutely nothing and was really in a desperate place i love his story because he just saw one thing like he had a vision for what he
10:43
wanted and he would not settle the story goes of how he approaches thomas edison after traveling across the country with nothing in his pocket literally nothing in his pocket to go to the greatest inventor probably in history and say i want to go into business with you the next 30 minutes [Music] mr edison mr edison mr edison i'm edwin c barnes
11:39
your new partner thank you very much thank you how do you do sir yes uh how much for a ticket to orange new jersey 16.47 all aboard from orange new jersey [Music] [Music] may i help you yes i'm here to meet with mr edison do you have an appointment no but tell him that mr edwin c barnes is
12:37
here to meet with him and that i said he'll be very glad to have met me [Music] thank you no tell them i don't care we are not buckling do whatever you have to do [Music] so you're the man i will be glad to have met are you yes mr edwin c bonds and what have you invented mr barnes nothing mr edison you're not an inventor no sir i'm a businessman and your aim is
13:21
to be your partner in business sir you're not looking for a job sir i will take whatever job you have to offer but my ultimate goal is to be in partnership with mr thomas a edison you seem pretty sure of yourself for a man who hasn't invented anything ah i have something far more powerful than what might that be i am not interested in anything other than this one goal and i will do whatever it takes to get it you know i turn away a hundred men every week i am not at all surprised and most of them have invented some all during
13:51
contraption or other electric chicken plucker automatic pen refiller that one cost me a shirt and you stand here with nothing oh sir desire's not nothing i guess not i have vision i believe it will come true one day and i will stick by that however long and hard the path i've learned over the years that when a man desires a thing so deeply that he's willing to sacrifice his entire future on a single turn of the wheel just to get it you should never bet against that
14:23
man so where should i start working my way up tell mr burroughs to start you in the stockroom thank you no demand no no market no it is not how much it costs gentlemen it's how much time and manpower is saved by this dictating machine i don't think my region's gonna go for it mr edison your region is new york besides it doesn't save manpower it
15:10
saves women's time and secretaries are 10 cents a dance [Music] [Music] i believe i can sell your dictating machine mr edison in new york every city in america one day every office every town's gonna have one of these time is money when you save one you make the other even women's time no such thing time's time what's this plans to sell your invention this is a
15:52
marketing plan barnes i'm giving you the job of head of sales of the edison dictating machine for the whole region for the country i'll have him draw up a contract you won't regret it and you won't be riding any more freight trains as he had envisioned edwin c barnes became the business partner of thomas edison under the slogan built by edison installed by barnes
16:34
their partnership lasted more than 30 years and made edwin c barnes a very rich man but more importantly he proved the power of desire [Music] patience is such an important commodity to have like most people don't have patience and that's because they don't have faith they don't believe that it's going to happen or happen soon enough and we're in a culture where we want things right now you gotta be careful with that because that will destroy you you end up
17:06
dabbling and you end up giving up and you end up missing out on so many amazing things that life has to offer if you give up too soon my eternal search is how do i live a half full life where every day i get up with energy and the only way to ultimately do that is to calibrate all aspects of your life and create a life plan from love to business to security you have to build that if you want to achieve that and what i would consider true wealth
17:36
is getting up every day and looking at the world half full a few years ago i was in my office it was around 9 30 in the evening and i was shuffling bits of paper and wondering who am i going to go and see for a bit of business to earn some fees to pay those bills and the office security guard came in the building to lock up and he just said to me now time to lock up and i said just give me 10 more minutes 10 more minutes and then he walked away and i just stood up and went to the filing cabinet and looked at a few files who could i call for a bit of business and he came back again and i said um
18:08
what just give me two more minutes and then in that moment he asked me a question and this one question changed the whole of my life it said to me what time do you get in this morning i just well eight o'clock and then he walked away but then i stood there by the by the filing cabinet i realized well i've been up since six on the road at seven in the office eight o'clock it was now ten in the evening almost by time i get home it's going to be something like quarter to 11 at night and i've done
18:40
that not just today but last week and the week before in fact for months in fact for years i've been doing that and being absent from my family working all these hours getting absolutely nowhere and in that moment i remember standing by the filing cabinets and i grabbed the filing draw and i just slammed it and i said i've had enough of this in that moment i had an idea and the idea came through me the idea said to me what you need to do to achieve your goals is you have to set daily standards and live by those standards set standards from who you are
19:11
authentically from yourself and be that person just one day at a time what i did next was i created a sheet that had all my new standards in you know how i would take my kids to school in the morning and pick them up from from school three nights a week and no more working weekends that's another rule another standard no more evening appointments for clients and any clients that i have from this point onwards they'd have to come and see me in the office from anywhere anywhere in the country and also i'd be i'd go home and i would have you know mills with my family and i would
19:42
exercise and train every single day i even make standards around my clients how much income they should have the wealth that they should have and they must be nice people i've got my goals but unless i'm involved and committed to my life on a daily basis the only unit of time we really have is today because we're here today i was one of the worst producers in the company although i did the most hours i was about 1200 in terms of new business results three years later after my moment the company's 1600 strong and i'm 28th
20:14
in the company working part-time i'd increase my income by 10 times working less than half the time that i used to stick into these standards and be my authentic self so my life changed we had lots of holidays we bought another home and we had all the trappings of life but my real riches came in my relationships with my wife my children i became a better son i became a better brother a better friend to all those around me and i grew rich in relationships and in love [Music]
20:44
well i've been rich and i've been poor rich is a lot better but rich means i don't have to change my time for someone else's money i can do anything i want because i think it's good and pure and powerful and honorable and significant i get to do what i want to do so whether it's feeding people in haiti or sending 500 kids to college or creating a nice lifestyle for myself and those people i care about being rich is living life the way you feel you should
21:14
be and having the wherewithal to do it the henry ford story totally blew me away and i was able to read it and immediately act on it i was great at certain things in my business which i knew what they were imagination i was great at marketing i was great at recruiting all the outside things but i wasn't any good at all at reading numbers or understanding finance when i read that henry ford story i immediately went out and i hired esther kaplan my opposite as my business partner she could do
21:47
financial statements get the money from the bank create the systems do personnel management all this stuff that i wasn't good at she was great at and if not for that story i don't think i would have seen the light that you can always hire the attributes and the next guy that you don't have yourself and build an empire on their know-how versus your know-how and that made me really not only smarter but set me free [Music] not merely an ignorant idealist but an
22:26
anarchistic enemy of the nation capable of thought cannot see the economy get me landers you see it it's liable i'm gonna sue the chicago tribune for a million dollars on this day in 1919 the whole world was watching to see if henry ford could prove that his success was not by chance the only question was would he succeed mr ford is today the day how does it feel to be the voices your honor
23:03
since the case for liable rests on the determination as to whether what the chicago tribune printed was true or not defense would like to call henry ford to the stand for a demonstration as to whether or not he is an ignorant man very well mr ford you will take the stand [Music] he's telling us where to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth i do mr ford i'm going to ask you a few simple questions to determine whether or not you're an ignorant man how much schooling do you have i went to grammar
23:38
school to the age of 16 when i quit to become a mechanic in a machine shop that turned out to be a considerably more useful education for the work i would become famous for can you tell me how many soldiers the british sent to america to put down the rebellion of 1776. well i don't know the exact amount but i heard it was considerably larger than ever went back who was secretary of state under james madison i myself was not alive in 1811. and even if i was i don't see how that particular tidbit would help me run my
24:12
business how many people in this courtroom know the answer your honorary question the witness is not permitted to question the public nobody doesn't surprise me and how many of you good people got a college education your honor i suggest you try to get your money back on that since the chicago tribune could write that you're ignorant on the front page of their newspaper and try to get away with proving it mr ford would you please confine yourself to answering the question well can you repeat the question who was secretary of state under james madison well i can answer
24:43
that at once the answer is i do not know off the record judge you know the answer that one off the record no and you got at least two college degrees i have three university degrees well it seems like a pretty silly way to measure intelligence i can maybe save us all little time here gentlemen as you know i am one of the most successful manufacturers in this country folks drive my cars in every city in america and they outnumber all the other types of cars by a big margin i raise the wages my workers to five dollars per day ever
25:15
heard of anybody else doing that if i don't choose to clutter up my brain with general facts and tidbits of historical knowledge well i don't have to as i have a row of electric buttons on my desk i can push anyone and have it my elbow an expert and every branch of knowledge were on my payroll does that sound ignorant to you the witness is trying to take over this trial again your honor i move that he be found in contempt of this court motion denied mr jensen i think we're about finished here i am
25:46
almost finished here judge i want to ask one last question do you think an ignorant hick tripped in a junkyard and accidentally invented the internal combustion engine-powered automobile if you think that i suggest you try making one at home from scratch then we'll compare it to my creation and see whose looks like it was made by an ignorant man incapable of thought through the assistance of his mastermind group henry ford had at his command all the specialized knowledge he needed to
26:17
enable him to become one of the most accomplished people in the world the court finds in favor of the plaintiff the honorable henry ford i drive one of your automobiles myself mr ford damn fine piece of machinery [Music] people think that you have to be brilliant in every aspect in business and life or whatever it is to be
26:58
successful i believe that we all have strengths and we all have weaknesses but you really need to foster your strengths whatever your weaknesses are that you surround yourself with those types of people henry ford created a mastermind alliance and that's what you have to do [Music] everything we see in the world that was created by man was first created in his mind it's like van gogh said i dream my
27:30
painting and then i paint my dream we have to understand that whatever rembrandt or van gogh used we have available to us this book changed my life it was august 18 2006. i had been practicing law and a friend invited me to a management seminar and i remember arriving on the friday night and i'm in the seminar room and it was such a transformative evening that i could tell you exactly where i was sitting i could tell you what i was wearing and i could tell you what the
28:01
speaker that came out on stage was wearing and what he was saying and well it was bob proctor and he had the book think and grow rich and he was talking about the lessons he had learned at that time i guess it was about over 45 years he's now been studying the book for 55 years he said most people tiptoe through life hoping to make it safely to death i thought wow what a concept because when we're born we're risk takers we're just naturally risk takers we want to get up there we want to walk around we
28:32
want to you know learn to run and learn to do things and then as we grow older we're taught to play it safe stay in the comfort zone and you quoted bill go saying if i want to be free i got to be me not the me i think you think i should be not the me i think my wife thinks i should be not the me i think my kids think i should be if i want to be free i got to be me and i better know who me is i remember it was like a bucket of ice poured over my head and i thought oh my god am i
29:03
living the life i meant to live and he kept saying what do you want what do you really want and something inside of me woke up and it was like there is a greater purpose for me i'm physically in the seminar room but my mind is flashing through the boardrooms and executive offices and i started to see this program i started to see the design of the program what it would be called thinking into results i could see it on a fortune 50 executive's bookshelf and i could see the executives coming up to me and saying what a big impact it
29:36
had on their life and and their family's life and their entire company and community and i remember walking out of the seminar room on the sunday evening turning around and literally talking to the seminar room and i said i don't know how but i'm gonna do this babe ruth everybody knows he had the record for most home runs but he also did well in the strikeouts one time he was asked by a sports reporter said babe what do you think about when that pitcher strikes it out he said i'm starting to
30:11
feel sorry for the next one i face because it's time for another home run so he didn't concentrate on the strikeouts because often he'd strike out several times in one game but he also a lot of games he had a home run with somebody on base and won the ball game so only to success what counts but we can lose focus by counting on where we didn't succeed and not enjoy and progress on what's been successful for us when i first saw the book think and grow rich it reminded me when i told my mom at 16 i'm gonna get rich
30:46
the mentality that really makes the difference is action it's not intelligence it's not connections it is action i've never thought i was limited to this the the cranium or 5 8 or a body he was really confronting the spiritual being not the the physical body thought is not a physical thing it's it's it's out here right i've just been lucky enough since the age of 25 to be interested in my personal development and getting rid of
31:18
limited thinking so i could have and create and move toward abundance and prosperity and freedom real freedom you're free if you create freedom for yourself and that first starts with the ability to think freely so people always ask me is there a way to change a negative thought to a positive thought and the answer is no you're out of luck you can't do that the only way you can change a negative thought is with a positive affirmation when you say your goals out
31:52
loud so that moment i have a negative thought i say my goals out loud and then the negative thought goes away mary kim titla who is the national executive director of united national indian tribal youth she and i have worked together with native youth now for 20 years and a few years ago she said would you come and speak to my son bear's 8th grade football team because they're getting killed they're getting demoralized they lost 48 to nothing yesterday they lost 38 to nothing last week 28 to 10 the week before it keeps getting worse i said sure and i drove down it's about
32:26
an hour and a half it's literally the land of geronimo that's where he's from and i simply said to them you know you're in eighth grade but i'm going to tell you something that will help you the rest of your lives that is just as important and just as true for you as it is for nfl players which is the only thing you have to do right now is to use all of your focus and bring all of your passion it may sound simple that's all you have to do for the next two hours because there's so many players that have more speed more talent more physical
32:56
ability that never make it in the nfl because they never learned that for the next two hours i challenge you to do that in the first 11 plays and i have witnesses to this they scored three touchdowns they won the rest of their games mary kim told me they didn't lose another game and then three months later she calls me up and she says 16 of those 22 young people are on the basketball team including my son bear the quarterback and they just finished the regular season undefeated
33:28
now i didn't that wasn't my power it was simply helping them see the power they had well my story starts as a young man at age 17 my biggest ambition was to be an all-american football player and then go into the nfl and hopefully play for the beloved dallas cowboys and the coaches and the scouts and the people that monitor those sorts of things kind of assured me i had the size and speed to do that and i thought my future was set then one day during a routine physical to go play another season of football i was
33:59
diagnosed with the condition that would cause me to lose my sight ten years later i was totally blind and i woke up that morning i instantly knew i'd lost the remainder of my sight and i knew i would live the rest of my life as a blind person and the thoughts and the doubts and the fears that came over me would be impossible to describe i was 29 years old i had never met a blind person i didn't have a clue what i was going to do with the rest of my life so the only plan i could come up with involved moving into this little nine by 12 foot room in the back of my house
34:32
and in my little room i had my radio and my telephone and my tape recorder and i really fully intended to never leave that room again the thought of traveling millions of miles and talking to millions of people or writing 30 books and having six of them made into movies or doing speeches or running a television network with over a thousand stations or or doing this movie project would have seemed as foreign to me as going to the moon so i sat in my little nine by 12 foot self-imposed prison and i never thought i would leave that
35:02
room again and i sat there broke and despondent and depressed and suicidal i thought of that i remember they brought me a white cane and they said jim this will never be away from your side you'll never have a job people won't like you women won't want to hang around with you men won't put up with you you're never going to make money you'll need to get on relief or welfare and this cane will never be more than a few feet away from you until you die and i sat that cane on one side of my chair
35:33
and on the other side of my chair were tapes that people had given me of think and grow rich and other great books and i realized there's not much i can do sitting in this little room broken scared i can't even get out of this little room but i can think and the whole world changed because i changed my life when i changed my mind sitting in that little room because on one side was the white king and on the other side was a voice telling me pure powerful positive possibility
36:04
and i realized somebody's lying to me and i figured i'd rather die believe in impossibility then live believing that we're all here to be poor [Music] well some people don't believe in the law of attraction but i've proven it i've seen it scientifically and therefore it exists [Music] some people ask me as a scientist can thoughts really change the world can they really create
36:47
things yes of course thoughts can really impact reality as we have shown in our water research you can even change your physical body we have believed for a long time that water is able to store information then we came across a method which is a simple dark field microscope and with this darkview microscope we take photographs from drops of water the drops are placed on a glass plate
37:19
then the water evaporates you expect probably on this glass plate a random picture but this isn't a random picture the structure in this picture depends on the information which has been in the water so basically it depends on what the water has experienced in the past and then we impact thoughts special thoughts for example please build a center you drop
37:53
the experimenter influences the pictures we see the person does not touch the water the water is in the syringe and if you are have your strong thoughts enough then we see after evaporating that the center is built in this drop this is a transition from the spiritual to the physical world and in this transition we pass the state of form thoughts are feelings you have good thoughts or you have bad thoughts
38:28
and for example if you if you have a shock if you have a bad emotion then you will see that afterwards all the drops you make are not the same as before these drops are totally changed these drops are really unstructured you realize that you are what you think and you create your surrounding as you are and i think this is the most important thought [Music]
39:08
the power of thought can be so strong and have such an impact that you don't even realize what your thoughts might do to you or to others it was sometime in the late 80s i was living in la jolla it was during a very severe drought in california i had heard on the radio that the reservoirs were so low that there was no drinking water for animals who would visit these reservoirs and animals were dying and i thought well this sounds like a good cause so we thought we'd buy t-shirts and bumper stickers because back then you didn't have social media and other ways to promote things it was very old school and we wanted to
39:39
have this name called think rain so think rain was this idea we had and we were going to use it to create awareness about raising money and also maybe even get people to think about the necessity to conserve water i called up sacramento from southern california and i said how long does it take to get a statewide trademark oh really and they basically said we'll send you the application that'll take probably two weeks you can fill it out send it back but i don't really have that much time you know in my mind it was an emergency i decided we were doing it and i wasn't gonna wait for paperwork
40:11
so we got in the car my friend drove and we had a pad of paper and i took a pen and i scribbled on it really thick think rain and as soon as we got on the freeway the first car i held the sign up to without even realizing it was a station wagon full of nuns and they were like you know bless you you know so we began to flash every single car we saw through the whole state of california on our way from southern to northern california to go to the state capitol to get this document we wanted to secure ownership of the name i don't know how many people we flashed it must have been i don't know it could have been a
40:41
thousand or more and every person was like yeah i think rain that's a great idea and so as we pulled into sacramento i remember going under this underpass and as we went under it there's like a drop of water that hit the windshield and i thought is that like just condensation what was that so we pull into the capital we go into the secretary of state's office look her schedule is really full up today i'm sorry it's really important that we get our trademark done today no you have to submit it and the secretary of state will review it and we'll send
41:12
it back to you is there anything you can do to just get five minutes i promise that's all it'll take we told her what it was about she goes well just a minute and she comes back about 10 minutes later and says the secretary of state of california march fong you will see you now and we're like really this is about bringing awareness about the terrible drought that's been going on in california we believe that think rain can be something that people can start thinking positively about and putting their energy towards to stop this terrible drought that's why we wanted to
41:43
see you directly and you believe this will make a difference my damn secretary you can see outside your window the drought is affecting everything [Music] emma can you bring the stamp in please [Music] go make history wow thank you so much thanks my pleasure and we left and we got in the car and we started driving home and as we drove home [Music]
42:28
it began to rain and it rained and it rained and that drought was over we never made a single bumper sticker we never made a single t-shirt because there was no reason to [Music] once you say yes i'm going to do that
42:59
and you make that definite decision the world starts to change because your mind the greatest gift we've ever been given will start looking for ways to make your dream come true instead of looking for excuses which is how you live until you have a definiteness of purpose for as long as i can remember i've been an athlete when i wasn't training i was reading about it when i wasn't reading about it i was thinking about it it was my life in fact my nickname was janine the
43:31
machine because that embodied the sort of person i was well i found myself as a member of the australian ski team and my goal was to represent my country at the olympics to really put australia on the map as a force to be reckoned with that was my dream and nothing was going to stop me then on one warm autumn day i set out on a training bike ride with my fellow teammates we'd been on our bikes for around five and a half hours when we got to the part of the ride that i loved and i got up
44:03
off the seat of my bike and i started pumping my legs and as i sucked in the cold mountain air i could feel it burning my lungs and i looked up to see the sun shining in my face and then everything went black my body was consumed with pain i'd been hit by a speeding truck i'd broken my neck and my back in six places five ribs on my left side my right collar bone my right arm my head was cut open across
44:35
the front lifted back exposing the skull underneath i had internal injuries and i had massive blood loss one part of me was in intensive care excruciating pain and the other part was detached and pain-free i spent 10 days between dimensions and i was given a choice to stay in this spiritual dimension or to return to my broken body
45:05
after ten days i opened my eyes to find myself back in my body and the journey had begun i spent six months flat on my back in the spinal ward and when i left it was a very different person from the one that had come in i had a body that didn't function i was in a wheelchair i couldn't move my legs i had no feeling from the waist down and they told me that if i did walk again it would be with calipers and a walking frame i can remember my doctor
45:37
saying to me what are you going to do when you get home and i said i'm going to the olympics and she looked at me and said in a matter-of-fact way janine you're never going to be able to do the things you did before and that was my rock bottom and the only way that i was going to move forward was to let go of the life that i thought i was supposed to have and when i made that decision
46:08
my whole life changed i realized that even with my broken body janine the machine was still alive sometime after that i was sitting outside in my wheelchair and my plaster body cast and an airplane flew overhead and i looked up and i thought to myself okay if i can't walk then maybe i can fly that moment
46:39
changed my life in my plaster body cast and a pair of baggy overalls that my mother bought me my friend and my mother drove me out to the local airport and they'd lifted me into a light aircraft for the first time everybody thought i was crazy and i remember sitting in the cockpit and wondering how on earth would i ever be able to do this but i had a dream and the instructor that was next to me took off and allowed me to fly that day with my
47:08
hands and i thought to myself i can do this i am going to learn how to fly there was something burning so strongly inside me that nothing could stop me a burning desire is an inner candle an inner flame that can never be extinguished and no matter what may go before you come hell or high water you are going to bet your existence on this burning desire
47:43
and if the cynics come and the doubters come and the negative toxic people come you will use their cynicism you will use their doubt to propel you forward arguably one of the most impactful and inspiring stories and profiles in my book think and grow rich of black choice centers on mary mcleod bethune when she started what is now bethune cookman college you go back to the mid to the late 1920s and here's a black woman who had never been president
48:15
of anything i mean she had never been executive director she had never been first in her class but what did she have she had a dream my [Music] hello are you here for school yes what's your name mary mcleod can i help you carry them books those books those books yes
49:10
thank you mary why are you so early it's five miles and i didn't know how long it would take to walk over here you walked five miles by yourself how old are you mary eleven i run most of the way why did you come by yourself don't you have brothers and sisters i have two younger brothers but they too small to come and 14 big brothers and sisters but they too busy with work and such but when you teaches me how to read i could
49:42
eat all them how to read too true miss mary mcleod you ran five miles before breakfast and you are the 15th of 17 children yes and this is your desk [Music] [Music] and this is your first book
50:21
but i can't read it i i don't even know its name you will read it this is the best day ever better than birthdays and christmas and other days in 1904 with only six students and desks made of discarded milk crates mary bethune started her own school for girls in 1931 she became president of bethune cookman college shortly after she was invited to the white house by
50:55
president roosevelt and first lady eleanor right this way ms bethune what an honor to meet you the honor is mine mrs roosevelt you know you were the president of a college when there was hardly a woman college president anywhere in the world well when you start a little school and grow it up to be a college no one can tell you no to being president your college is thriving now while others are failing and i know why
51:25
it is our pledge to make a lasting contribution to all that is finest and best in america to cherish and enrich her heritage of freedom by working to integrate all her people regardless of race creed or national origin i can't believe i'm sitting in the white house and the first lady is quoting me to me how is this fire born in you have you always had it well when i was a little girl
51:56
i went with mama to deliver laundry to a white lady's house and i picked a book up and the child snatched it away you can't read she said and i decided that that was the only difference between white and black folks was that white folks could read my whole life was based on that god bless that little brat wherever she may be she helped create a great woman who's brought the light into
52:29
thousands of lives i'm going to the national convention of women in florida i've asked to be seated next to you on the platform oh mrs roosevelt you know it's against the law in the state of florida for white and black folks to sit next to each other i know i'd like to see the officer with the gumption to try and arrest the two of us yeah that would be a whole heap of gumption at that
53:02
yes a holy president roosevelt is ready to meet mrs bethune now oh my oh my christmas and birthdays all rolled into one [Music] she started where she was and she wasn't going to be deterred now when you look at bethune cookman college they have close to 20 000 notable alumni across the country and it
53:36
all started because here is a woman who refused to let go of her dreams one of the standout things that i notice about all these successful people that i've interviewed is that they are willing to master whatever industry or whatever craft they are going into they don't dabble they don't just do a little bit here a little bit there they have that one thing and they focus and they go all in they're on a relentless pursuit to make their dreams happen the toughest thing
54:09
to understand is what do you want to master and the earlier you can decide that the better off you will ever be because that means you're only going to get better and better and better with time [Music] so i look back on my journey and i've received a lot of great advice but the best advice that i would give would be if you want to be do i love that piece of advice because it's simple it's direct it's to the point and it's why i'm a success
54:40
i wanted to be a podcaster so i had to do podcasting if you want to be a writer you have to write if you want to be in music you have to sing i mean it's just that simple people try to complicate things they try to put all these barriers and struggles in front of them that shouldn't really exist the reality is if you want to be something just wake up and do that thing put in those 10 000 hours now that i've interviewed over 1400 entrepreneurs i'm getting pretty close to my 10 000 hours but if i look back
55:13
at hour 10 i was really really bad if i looked back at hour 100 i was okay if i look back at hour of thousands i was getting good and that's the process so if you want to be x do x it's really that simple of a process [Music] dreams are the spark plugs of the spirit imagination enables you to really think imagine decide on what you'd like to do with your life you know napoleon hill said that everything begins as
55:45
a piece of energy everything around you right now in your life you've created so change what's up here and you'll change what's out there in the world [Music] if you want to inspire the world follow your dreams if you don't want to inspire people don't follow your dreams it's so valuable and important to chase those dreams whether you actually achieve them or not is irrelevant it's the pursuit of you going after what you were born to do
56:17
is what inspires other people and it inspires yourself more than anything else in that pursuit most people look at what success can give them and that's what they obsess over rather than obsessing over what it would actually take to get the success and i think that's probably the clearest line between those that actually achieve it and those that don't probably the biggest obstacle that any individual has to overcome is uh mindset
56:53
you know the words the pictures and images going through our mind at any given time there are two people that we find over the course of her life number one the individual who sees exactly what he or she wants and number two the individual who only sees the obstacle that blocks him or her from getting what they want when you're pursuing someone an attempt to win their perfection to become their significant other you try to think of all these ways all these creative things that you can do really just utilizing any way possible
57:26
to get their attention to get them to become yours you can do that with all areas of your life you can do that with anything that you have a desire for taking all your resources and putting it into that to make it yours being rich is being fulfilled in all areas of your life it's doing what you love it's growing it's affection when i focus on what i loved helping others and doing the things i was great at the rest came with money growth love and love is what
57:58
pushed you further i found out that love has influenced me to do things that i never thought are possible when you're in love you have power beyond belief to achieve great things and that could be love for a person or love for a creative endeavor or even having passion for a business that you yourself create napoleon hill talks about how we should always be open for opportunities looking for things that can help us to enhance and further our goals and one of the things that you could do to help boost that
58:29
is to start saying yes more it's one of my favorite topics saying yes more the australians call it a bias for yes the spanish call it sierto buddhists call it living in the current of life i call it saying yes more saying yes to invitations saying yes to parties saying yes to emotions saying yes to potential business opportunities say yes more in your life and you will naturally open yourself up to more of the opportunities that start coming see i
58:59
think every human being can live up to their fullest potential they don't live because of fears they don't believe that they can do this and my advice is if a kid like me living in slums can sit here and give this interview and they had a lot more to start than i ever had in my life why can't they do this it's easy just believe in yourself you can be and do and have anything in your life if you decide to do that
59:31
the one piece of advice that i share with everyone to change their life over 10 years of research of physics metaphysics quantum physics of all types of tremendous experience the easiest way to change your life is to say thank you or think thank you before you go to bed and to say or think thank you when you wake up now you need to do it 30 straight days so it becomes a part of your subconscious and your unconscious but that attitude of gratitude will attract everything you desire it'll change your entire perspective and your
01:00:01
entire reality each and every one of us are where we are today because of the choices we've made before today and if we want something different if we want to truly be rich we may need to make a few different choices from today going forward you cannot change anything in your life unless you change the way you think about life if you want to change what you're doing in five years you have to change what you're doing now and any change requires action and any action requires thinking
01:00:33
so you have to assess yourself and decide what you're going to do and what direction you're going to go and then you can take those thoughts and change them into action and eventually allow you to change your life there is a legend of an ancient commander he ordered his men ashore leaving only a single century aboard each of his ships his soldiers were about to face an army that far outnumbered his own but the commander knew that fear itself was the greater enemy
01:01:18
it was his belief and their courage that inspired him to act that inspired him to remove even the possibility of retreat my men have courage in their hearts victory lies within them how can i emission [Music] burn the ships [Music] bring them off [Music]
01:02:19
[Music] there is no retreat we will not leave these toys alive [Music] unless we win we either triumph or we perish [Music] oh [Music] and when they did each person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn their ships and remove any chance of retreat
01:03:25
this is essential to succeed when you read this book thinking grow rich it really hits you hard when you think about the story of burning the ships there is no other option there's no backup plan for this it's either do or die and that's exactly what my parents did imagine coming to a foreign country you don't even speak the language and then you come to this country with a suitcase with a few pairs of clothes and then you land right here somewhere in los angeles
01:03:59
california most people don't even understand the sacrifice they leave everything behind and we would sit there and ask our parents why they work so hard why they work two three jobs they're always on call you know they had pagers and some some of the the millennial this day and age don't even know what pagers are now i remember my mother always saying to me that we did not come to this country to screw up this opportunity when i first started in business
01:04:32
i needed money i couldn't help other people until i could help myself first right i mean i had to make sure that i put food on the table that i had a roof over my head that i actually had a vehicle that would be able to take me from point a to b and even that was a big deal because i had a car i had a 1967 volkswagen bug you know and and oftentimes i was just just can you just get me to point b and i would be sweating going from point a to point b because my car didn't even have an air conditioner in it
01:05:03
and and even to roll down the window it took two hands to do it i mean literally i put one hand on the window one would go on the little the the the the handle to roll down the window and i would roll down the window like this because if i just did this that window was slamming into the door panel and it would take two hands people on both sides of the window trying to push it back up and so i wanted a nice car you know and you see all these people that have nice cars and i always wanted to know what is it like to have a nice car maybe think and grow rich means to buy the nice cars well i got the nice cars and then i thought
01:05:34
well maybe think and grow rich means to have a beautiful home and so i went and got a nice house and it's it's a beautiful home and my family's there i've got so many people that i know that have a lot of money but they're not that happy and i've got a lot of people that they don't have a lot of money and they're also unhappy so what does it take is it is money going to make people happy i mean money can certainly make people you know make their lives somewhat easier but i'm not
01:06:05
quite sure if it'll make people happy and so thinking and growing rich i think what it means at the end of the day is to be happy you know in every aspect of your life i was 46 thinking i'm made for life and the universe said no you're not we're going to make you start again i was quite wealthy i'd been successful and i got mixed up in a shopping center development that went terribly wrong
01:06:35
and we borrowed a million dollars interest rates went to 22 and i'm faced with an interest bill of two thousand dollars a week i got their money i've got three young kids i got a house mortgage and i was facing bankruptcy napoleon hill says the defining moment can be the darkest day in your life and once you know that it's a bit easier you need to take the
01:07:06
focus off how bad it is for me to what can i do to change it i wrote a plan and i started doing something but i had this urge to share what i'd learned with other people and that led me to write a book called making money made simple i wrote the book and nobody wanted it i couldn't find a publisher but i kept going and eventually i found a little publisher who said he would publish it if i bought the risk
01:07:37
so i did that and that book became the biggest best seller in australia's history for me it was faith that pulled me through it is not a book that you read once you literally have to use it as a tool and read it every single year for the rest of your life because you have to master the principles not just know what they are because if they don't all holistically work together you actually won't achieve anything you'll be spinning your wheels
01:08:13
and in different principles and not fully understand what it actually means to achieve that sixth sense because when you get to that level you really believe that you are creating your entire existence because you have mastered all of the steps that allow you to not just achieve one single vision but how to apply it to every aspect of your life to create a reality you know and i would say very few people
01:08:44
ever get to that stage or fully even understand that that's even possible there's no secret to success if there is a secret to success it's just that there is no secret when it comes to wealth when it comes to prosperity when it comes to abundance it has nothing to do with race it has nothing to do with gender who your parents are your level of education but it has everything to do with the desire it has everything to do with faith and it has everything to do
01:09:14
with right mental attitude anything the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve i have people continually coming up and saying you know i just have a difficult time believing i can do this or that or whatever when i set a new goal i have difficulty believing i can do it you come to believe you don't start out with belief i don't start out with belief when i set a goal i don't believe i can do it intellectually i know i can do it but in my heart no
01:09:48
so you know what i do i just keep repeating it i keep repeating it over and over and over again i turn it into a song if i wasn't persistent in my goals of wanting to become an african-american quarterback i probably would have quit somewhere along the way african-americans weren't really thought of as quarterbacks as leaders as faces of franchises as guys who could think and make decisions and everywhere along the way where people told me i couldn't i just had to prove that i could i got to a level in college where i was
01:10:20
the pac-8 player of the year i was the most valuable player in the rose bowl a game that i had always dreamed of playing in as a young kid and then i felt like i was going to get my opportunity to maybe play in the national football league which was my dream but i was constantly told throughout the process of the draft that i was going to be changed and my position was going to be either a wide receiver or defensive back so that's where i had to make a huge decision in my life what am i going to do am i going to take this nfl opportunity at a position that i didn't love that i'd never played before
01:10:51
or do i want to go and play in canada a country i've never been to a style of play that i had never played before but they were going to give me the chance to play quarterback i'm having a great career up there you know we're winning championships i'm winning mvp awards but in the back of my mind is how good a player in could i play with the best so that's one of the things that motivated me to come back to the national football league was to see how i measured up against the best players in the world and i answered a lot of those questions and i answered a lot of that doubt by being able to come back and and play and play at a
01:11:23
high level the status that i was able to achieve as an african-american man at that position gave motivation to a generation of young players that could look to me look to some other guys that played during my era i helped make a difference at a position where there was a lot of stereotypes as i talked about in racism in certain areas and now that i've finished the game one of my big motivations is to help others by using the status that i've achieved and using the platform that i've been able to gain by doing that if your goals and desires are stronger
01:11:58
than the adversity that you will face and we're going to face adversities it'll pull you through and then you'll be successful i can't achieve my success without temporary defeat without getting kicked in the face every now and then [Music] but that's okay use it as education and that's where you can rely on the pillars of the 13 principles for
01:12:28
success that are within this book when the opportunity came and the napoleon hill foundation was looking for somebody to write the latino version and i heard about it i thought that's me i've got to do it one of my favorite stories is a story of jesse trevino he became one of the most famous and respected latino artists in the country his works hang at the smithsonian museum in washington dc but as a younger man few can imagine the fear he faced and the courage he
01:13:03
summoned the year was 1967. the vietnam war was raging the draft was on and jesse received a telegram reporting three days to your local draft office in san antonio and he decided to serve he said yeah i want to go and do my part for my country and all of a sudden he was right in the middle of battle dear mama i'm a foot soldier patrolling the mekong valley in vietnam
01:13:34
in just three months half of my unit has been either killed or wounded every day i imagined being home near to you [Music] so much pain in a place that is so beautiful his right arm was on fire and all but severed at the elbow the main artery in his leg was cut he couldn't move he was bleeding to death private first class jesse trevino survived
01:14:17
thanks to the quick action of his buddies who dragged him to a helicopter and flew him to a mashfield hospital they patched him up and saved his life he almost lost his leg he had stratton all over his body but he did lose his right hand now he was an artist and his painting hand was gone two years passed his wounds were healing but his heart
01:14:47
grew deep with despair he agonized over the idea of what he could paint or if he could then one day a thought like a spark of light out of the darkness if i learn to paint all over again with my left hand i'll paint the things that i love the most my family and my neighborhood [Music] he took classes with beginning artists he painted murals of the horrors of war
01:15:20
he even got his master's degree then he made the biggest discovery of all the talent and knowledge needed to paint was in his mind in his heart not in his hand and it had been there all along with his left hand he became one of the most successful artists in the united states and in the world today as he talks about that experience he feels that if that had not happened to him
01:15:51
he would not have been able to be the artist that he became because it gave him a stronger determination he said i am going to do it no matter what [Music] a lot of people set out with a great desire to accomplish what they want but they get tripped up along the way tripped up by obstacles so i think
01:16:33
every hugely successful person i've met has extreme desire but you know what they have that is so grossly underestimated more than anything else is an inability to feel sorry for themselves when they get hit they certainly feel the pain like everybody else but they're very good at getting back up fast without feeling sorry for themselves and i have found that to be my number one trait but it's the inability to feel sorry for yourself that explains an enormous amount of success in life
01:17:05
personal business whatever your goal is i've had a lot of people talk to me about my legacy and when i was growing up my dad would ask me each night have you added value to someone's life today and so i believe legacy is created each and every day as individuals if we add value to other people's lives then our legacy is there because they will remember us having added value to their lives it's never been on my bucket list to be a celebrity in the last few years i realized that by becoming more
01:17:36
of a celebrity and being out there i can impact more lives by sharing the information that i've learned through my many years of experience and so it's important for me so that at night i can say i truly have added value to someone's life today i was only 11 when my father died and i was the eldest of five children so i had to overcome it he never treated me like a regular girl he never stopped me from doing anything i remember that some of my friends would
01:18:11
say don't do that only boys can do that my father never stopped me from doing anything the legacy i wanted to leave behind is the continuation of what my father gave me the belief that there are no boundaries to what you want to achieve in life you see a seed was planted in my mind before my father passed away his encouragement and belief in me is like the water and the harvest is the legacy i'm leaving behind you set your mind into something you focus on it
01:18:43
you make it happen i believe it's extremely important to know our why and to know our purpose throughout every stage or season of life and it could change and evolve when i was a kid all i cared about was being a great athlete and being the best that i could be at the time i actually wanted to be better than everyone else my vision and my purpose my legacy was to be the best but i felt angry still i felt unfulfilled i felt like something was missing and i didn't understand until later in my 20s where i was like it's because i'm
01:19:15
selfish it's because i'm only thinking about me and i want me to be highlighted as the best and everyone else to be second place and as i started to realize that my life is about service it's about giving it's about serving others that's when i started to achieve my goals and not feel empty inside when our inner world evolves our outer world evolves and things start coming to us in a natural flow in life my current uh legacy is to inspire 100 million people to show them how to make a full-time living doing
01:19:46
what they love the marconi story to me was inspiring because oftentimes people thought i was crazy too hearing marconi's story was like maybe i'm not the one that didn't belong maybe i actually might be exceptional [Music] so [Music] mr marconi sir yes i'm busy at the moment mr marconi we respectfully request that you
01:20:28
come with us sir i couldn't possibly i'm right in the middle we have papers that give us the authority to take you papers are you from the government no we're in the military ministry of defense no sir thank god for that we're from the hospital what hospital saint albans must be a misunderstanding isn't that a mental asylum yes sir he would just come quietly i'm sure we can straighten this out later on whose authority the hospital is
01:21:00
called by your friends friends acquaintances perhaps concerned for you and on the gossip of idol ignorant troublemakers if you'll just come with us sir i'm sure be straightened out i will not come with you [Music] this is insane as you say sir we have a straight jacket in the carriage but we don't want to be forced to use it it's for your own good sir i'm sure
01:21:29
[Music] mr marconi i am dr fielding finally an intelligent person hopefully do you know why you were here i assumed i said too much at a dinner party after a glass or two of champagne talked about things people
01:22:22
don't understand your friends are concerned about you and i must say so am i friends you claim to be able to send and receive human voices through the air yes well you obviously don't realize it but this is the textbook definition of schizophrenia i don't hear disembodied voices in my head good i send voices through the air from one device to another by way of invisible waves and this is less delusional how exactly it's less devotional because
01:22:54
it's true that has not been my experience your experience is the thing it's a thing of the past and you i'm a thing of the future you interest me i'm happy for you that you have a a patient that interests you for my own part i have been forcibly removed from my home and my work i've been stripped of my clothes given a nice bath dressed in prison pajamas and my only crime was to be a little too smart for
01:23:26
the smart set in london if allowed to return to my workshop i can demonstrate these things preferably my own clothes [Music] come with me [Music]
01:24:09
13 years later guillermo marconi won the nobel prize in physics in 1909 at the age of 34. he is now universally recognized as the inventor of the radio marconi understood the power of a new idea so one of my biggest defeats came two months after i launched all of a sudden i saw that my statistics from my podcast were way way down like at first i thought it might be a mistake and i kind of
01:24:42
double checked the phone i refreshed my browser i actually even wrote an email to support of the media host company and i said your stats working and they said oh yeah we're working fine no problem and i said wow so this could be the beginning of the end and i was really down and i was thinking do i list my microphone on craigslist like am i going to pack it up am i really going to sell everything and try something different and emit defeats fired up my computer and saw an email from a listener and he started off by introducing himself as a military veteran so i had that connection with
01:25:13
him right away because we both served in iraq and he was telling me about his struggles coming back and about the struggles he had with ptsd and then he went on to say how that morning he was particularly down in the dumps he had recently broken up with his girlfriend and he just really felt by himself like nobody cared he went for a long walk really kind of considering what it would look like if he committed suicide like if he ended his own life kind of out of the blue had his phone with him plugged in his earbuds and turned on my
01:25:44
podcast my voice came on you know a little over enthusiastic which i i tend to do sometimes but he said he needed it like he needed that kind of positive outlook by the end of that episode which was 25 minutes in length his mindset had completely shifted he went from somebody who was only looking for the negatives in life and by the way finding the negatives because that's what he was looking for just saying it really can't get much worse so why not just hope that it starts to get better and that was essentially the theme and the message that that podcast episode was focused on you could just see that
01:26:15
by the end of the email he was really excited and fired up about what his next step was going to be like i remember finishing that email and saying wow like if my podcast can positively impact somebody in this way even if it's just one person why am i so concerned about not having the huge numbers that i had when i first launched and that was four years ago that was over 1400 episodes ago that was over 40 million listens ago so i'm really glad that i didn't pack it in one of my favorite all-time stories of think and grow rich is this charles schwab story it's about succeeding with
01:26:46
what you already have and it reminds me of an interview i had an opportunity to sit down with steve wozniak now you probably know him from apple computers with steve jobs and i asked him i says how did you and steve have so much success in your life and he looked at me and said we succeeded with what we already had what are you talking about he said when microchips came out they were so expensive we could only afford one chip he goes job sold his volkswagen i sold my calculator we pulled our money to buy one chip he goes but hewlett-packard was rich they had all the money of god they could go from
01:27:18
point a to point b using 20 chips where we simply couldn't afford it so i'd pull away five and configure it to work and then i'd pull away five and get it to work till finally i could go from point a to point b using our one chip he goes look we weren't trying to be cool or innovative or slick we could only afford one chip but by embracing that as an opportunity i found the shortest cleanest path and by doing so change the way people do personal computing for the rest of the world for the rest of their life what

are you sitting on right now that looks like the greatest challenge but it might just be the greatest blessing in disguise my mentor was a guy named dennis waitley when the speaking profession dennis wrote the forward to my very first book and i was on a speaking tour with he and dr robert schuller and they twisted my arm into writing my first book and i always had that cane folded up in my suitcase when i traveled i never used it but that white cane i kept it and then dennis waitley 40 years
01:28:20
later on his 80th birthday came to an event i was doing in san diego i brought him up on stage and i gave it to him and on his 80th birthday he was going to climb mount kilimanjaro and he said i'll accept your gift with your permission i'll leave this on top of mount kilimanjaro if you'll promise when you're 80 you'll go get it back and that's where my cane is three feet from gold and that story always reminded me that at all times i could just be three feet from gold it could be the next meeting the next turn
01:28:53
the next chance encounter that really propelled me and pushed me through some of those dark moments you're always potentially just three feet from gold there was a man named darby who was caught by gold fever in 1850 he staked a claim and went to work [Music] after weeks of labor he was rewarded [Music] there's a lot more where this one came
01:29:40
from now we just need the right equipment to get it out the ground now everybody who puts in will get an equal share out everybody the first door was shipped to a smelter the return show promised that they had one of the richest mines in colorado a few more cars of that aura would clear the debts then would come the big killing in profits down went to pickaxes up with the hopes of darby and his investors then
01:30:10
something happened the vein of goldor disappeared they persevered desperately trying to pick up the vein again but to know they'll had a good run i guess and then it ran clean out nothing but rocky it's been all we had in this equipment maybe somebody else could use it i reckon i can find a buyer i'll give you a hundred dollars for the lot
01:30:51
[Music] okay [Music] where was this did you mind out this particular junk man had an eye for opportunity he called in a geologist to do a little calculating but my reckoning this mod failed because that fellow darby was not familiar with fault lines when the earth shifts
01:31:26
the vein can jut over a few feet a few three maybe four five feet at the most [Music] that is exactly where it was found the junk man took millions of dollars an hour from the mine because he knew enough to seek expert advice when encountering an unexpected obstacle he struck gold just three feet from where darby gave up [Music]
01:32:06
when darby heard about the riches he might have earned had he not quit he made the most powerful decision of his life he promised himself to never quit again in his new line of work as an insurance provider he became one of a small group of fewer than 50 people who sold more than a million dollars in life insurance annually he recouped his losses and paid all his family and neighbors back the money they had invested he also discovered that desire
01:32:36
itself can be transmuted into gold [Music] surround yourself with people who are going to be there to bolster you while you build your self-confidence have people on your team who are strong where you are weak have people on your team who want to support you have been where you want to go mentors that will open the door for you that power of association is so strong everyone's still searching for that sense of power and the first and most powerful way
01:33:17
literally to do that is help someone else and napoleon hill's vision is that happiness is absolutely created not through witches even though it's in the title and it's confused a lot of people the richness is in giving happiness to other people giving that sense of power to them that they can influence others and by influencing others simply by making them feel valuable important unique now they've reaffirmed their own purpose and now they realize their power was
01:33:48
always there in the first place you are the defiant human spirit and when you connect with that you defy the things that hold you back from being all that you can be the biggest dream you ever had in your life is alive and well and we all have those big dreams goals passions callings things we want to do in this life and sometimes we haven't thought about them in five or 10 or 15 or 20 years and the only thing you have to do to activate it
01:34:20
is sit right where you're sitting right now and say yes i'm going to do that i don't know how to do it when to do it where to do it who to do it with but once you say yes i'm going to do that and you make that definite decision the world starts to change you've been born in original don't die a copy there's nobody else like you there's only one person that walks like you has your handprints nobody has eyes like you
01:34:52
don't be a discount version of yourself as you dig into napoleon hill's work what you're really digging into is who you are and who you are is so big i have studied it every day for 55 years and i think i'm just scratching the surface do yourself a favor and really begin to think that is napoleon hill's legacy that is your opportunity
01:35:29
[Music] cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul the blueprints of your ultimate achievements [Music] create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once whether you are ready or not to put this plan into action
01:36:04
[Music] every adversity every failure every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit [Music] do not wait the time will never be just right start where you stand and work with whatever tools you may have and better tools will be found as you go along
01:36:34
[Music] [Applause] [Music] desire is the starting point of all achievement not a hope not a wish but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything [Music] the oak sleeps in the acorn
01:37:16
the bird waits in the egg and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs dreams are the seedlings of reality [Music] through some strange and powerful principle of mental chemistry which she has never divulged nature wraps up in the impulse of strong desire that something which recognizes no such word as impossible
01:37:49
and accepts no such reality as failure whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve [Music] [Music]
01:40:05
focus in two things in life and the rest will come by itself it's on growing and everyday growing in any aspect of your life and the other is contributing every time that you contribute to another or you contribute to this world you will learn and you will grow and that is the best advice i can give life is what you make it and your thoughts make you so whatever you think about and the desires that you have in your heart if you believe it you can get it for anybody that's actually looking
01:40:36
to change themselves or their condition whatever it is that using the principles that napoleon has written out for us as this blueprint you can take these implement them within your lives and it's the you know it's it's personal achievement at its finest at its most basic element and these things if you just apply them to your lives just a little series of daily disciplines you'll have a dramatic impact over all aspects of your life for me i always felt like i could do anything after i read the book if i wanted it put
01:41:07
my mind to it desired it enough i could grow whatever i wanted i took the chances because i had faith and the faith that comes from the book that says if you believe it you can do it make your own choices it doesn't matter if they're good or bad let's just learn from them and that's how you're going to create yourself that's how you're going to mode your life that's uh that's going to be your life you purposely decide what you want the contents of your mind to be then you
01:41:39
program in those thoughts now your thoughts are still going to control you they are you are still going to habitually act and react and think and feel and conduct yourself because of your thoughts but you've put yourself in front of the process because now you have designed the contents of the thinking that will now automatically guide you these things become habitual and a person really can get to the point where 95 percent of the time they are actually
01:42:09
thinking positive and they're speaking positive and they are acting as if they really expect and believe what they think is going to come about is going to come about napoleon hill says that um you know conduct yourself as if that what you want you know is already you already have it well that's a very basic metaphysical principle and one of the most powerful act as if i started studying the subconscious mind and realized that it worked like an autopilot for example if you have a plane that's going from stockholm to l.a
01:42:40
and as soon as it has left the ground the pilot can switch on the autopilot as it goes a little bit out of course the autopilot sets it back to the normal intended course the same way our subconscious mind works and that was a defining moment realizing that i had an inner autopilot taking me places i didn't want to go and throughout the suggestion in thinking grew rich i got the tools to actually make a change follow your dreams put up some goals
01:43:13
what do you want in life what is your passion do whatever you want not what your friends want just feel the power of living your dream and you can do whatever you want in your life it's your dream step out of your comfort zone do something that you don't think you can do whether it's finishing a marathon making a million dollars getting the guy getting the girl making the team don't be afraid to do it because just once in your life you need to go out and try something that you just don't think you're able to do and
01:43:43
even if you don't make it happen you're never the same that the person you become when you push and actually try to do that it just changes your life forever it's it's worth it just do it get out there and try it [Music] [Music]
01:46:05
you
