Napoleon Hill believed that few people truly understand or appreciate the true impact of freedom, money, and wealth in the capitalist money system. It seems a timeless topic (as Hill’s lessons are) that many still do not understand all these years after the publication of Think and Grow Rich.
The Whole Truth
You should know the full truth concerning freedom of which so many people boast, and so few understand. As great as it is, as far as it reaches, as many privileges as it provides, it does not, and cannot bring wealth without effort.
There is only one dependable method of accumulating, and legally holding riches, and that is by rendering some service of use. No system has ever been created by which men can legally acquire wealth through mere force of numbers, or without giving in return an equivalent value of one form or another.
Unbeatable Laws Of Wealth
There is a principle known as the law of economics! This is more than a theory. It is a law no man can beat.
Mark the name of the principle, and remember it, because it is far more powerful than all the politicians and political machines. It is above and beyond the control of all the labor unions. It cannot be swayed, nor influenced nor bribed or self-appointed leaders in any calling. Moreover, it has an all-seeing eye and a perfect system of bookkeeping, in which it keeps an accurate account of the transactions of every human being engaged in the business of trying to get without giving. Sooner or later its auditors come around, look over the records of individuals both great and small, and demand an accounting.
“Wall Street, Big Business, Capital Predatory Interests,” or whatever name you choose to give the system which has given us American freedom represents a group of people who understand, respect, and abide by this powerful Law of Economics! Their financial continuation depends upon their respecting the law.
What Your Wealth Depends On
Your wealth, just as Napoleon Hill says here, depends on a basic understanding and implementation of the Law of Economics. And that law is simple—give so that you can receive. Give value in service in some form, and you, too, can build wealth upon it. Put the effort into accumulating wealth and it can be yours; but it will never be yours without your active participation.
