Napoleon Hill Resource Fest: Audio Review, Special Price for Wise Bread Readers and More
Are you a Napoleon Hill junkie? Just finding out about his powerful self help legacy? A new audio book has been released in conjunction with a hardcover edition detailing his previously lost works. There's also a 72-hour only special price on extra Napoleon Hill materials exclusively for Wise Bread readers and several resources featuring raw video and audio footage of Hill speaking on various topics. Read on.
He began his writing career at the tender age of thirteen, met and worked with some of the most powerful money men of his time, and wrote the all-time best selling personal success title of all time, Think and Grow Rich. This book still sells over a million copies a year. I'm speaking of course, of Napoleon Hill (1883 - 1970).
Reviewing every single work in a single article would be a bit much, in my opinion. So I'll be reviewing the audio version of his previously lost works by BBC Audiobooks America. This audio version was released simultaneously with John Wiley's hardcover edition of Napoleon Hill's Golden Rules: The Lost Writings. The lost writings in this case are a series of articles first first published in magazine form between 1919 and 1923. To hear a sample clip of this new audio book, click here. In this multiple CD set, Hill addresses the power of auto and self suggestion, and encourages us to allow only facts to impress themselves upon our mind. Other main points?
- Writing down your statement of personal life's work and repeating it daily.
- Controlling your thoughts is critical to attracting what you want.
- Form a mental round table of your “dream counselors” and consult them regularly.
- Organization of your life and thoughts is critical for turning your dreams and goals into reality. So are intense desire and rock solid self confidence.
- The enormous power of sheer will, persistence and general “stick-to-it-ness”.
- Work environment and even clothing make more of an impact than most people realize.
Mr. Hill also conducted a Carnegie interview that he found to be extremely informative. Carnegie's take on how great fortunes are made? Making sure you have other minds at your disposal, including both promoter and caretaker personalities into the mix and being able to manage those brains in your collective work group.
Something else that stood out to me in this audio book was Hill's discussion of how important it is to only focus on pertinent information, and his recommendation to not waste brain power to absorb frivolous details or details unimportant to what your life's focus is. This reminded me of a couple of Albert Einstein anecdotes I've heard over the years. The first was Einstein's response when once asked for his phone number. The person who asked for the information was shocked when the famous scientist asked him for a phone book so he could look up the information for him. After all, this was Albert Einstein. The fact that he didn't know his own phone number was mind blowing for the individual conducting the interview, and he mentioned this to his interview subject. Einstein's answer? He didn't bother to clutter his mind with information that could easily be referenced elsewhere.
The other anecdote I've heard numerous times relates to someone who knew the man well enough to be aware of his shaving habits. Upon noticing that Albert's main grooming and hygiene product was a simple bar of soap, the individual informed the scientist that there were other products he might enjoy for his shaving routine. Einstein apparently wasn't interested. Why? It would mean worrying about another product to purchase, use, store and keep stocked. Apparently, in his opinion, this was far too complicated and an invasion on his allotted time to spend thinking about scientific concepts and theories. I've also heard he frequently felt the same way about socks and neckties.
Extreme examples? Yes. But I feel they exemplify quite clearly the point Hill was trying to make. Maintaining proper focus on your life's work and goals can sometimes require intense and precise choices about the type and amount of extraneous information you allow into your life.
