The most momentous of occasions had their start in a single momentous decision. This is the course of our lessons from Napoleon Hill most recently.
When In The Course…
The document was drawn, and on June 28, the original draft was read before the Congress. For several days it was discussed, altered, and made ready. On July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson stood before the Assembly, and fearlessly read the most momentous decision ever placed on paper.
“When in the course of human events it is necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature, and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation…”
The Privilege To Decide
When Jefferson finished, the document was voted on, accepted, and signed by the fifty-six men, every one staking his own life upon his decision to write his name. By that decision came into existence a nation destined to bring to mankind forever, the privilege of making decisions.
By decisions made in a similar spirit of Faith, and only by such decisions, can men solve their personal problems, and win for themselves high estates of material and spiritual wealth. Let us not forget this!
Analyze the events which led to the Declaration of Independence, and be convinced that this nation, which now holds a position of commanding respect and power among all nations of the world, was born of a decision created by a Master Mind, consisting of fifty-six men. Note well, the fact that it was their decision which insured the success of Washington’s armies, because the spirit of that decision was in the heart of every soldier who fought with him, and served as a spiritual power which recognizes no such thing as failure.
Born Of Decision
We all have the right and privilege to decide our own future (and fortunes!) for ourselves. That is precisely the lesson that Napoleon Hill wants us to learn, so that we can take that decision and make a better future for ourselves and those we support.
