Mindset Mastery 46 – Timeless Advice

Mindset Mastery eBookThis post concludes the Congressman’s letter. What I find interesting here is how he talks about people needing a book like this because so many are faced with starting anew after years in economic turmoil. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Historical Repetitions

If there is any possible way that you can afford to render so great a service, may I offer the suggestion that you include with every book, one of your Personal Analysis Charts, in order that the purchaser of the book may have the benefit of a complete self-inventory, indicating, as you indicated to me years ago, exactly what is standing in the way of success.

Such a service as this, providing the readers of your book with a complete, unbiased picture of their faults and their virtues, would mean to them the difference between success and failure. The service would be priceless.

Millions of people are now facing the problem of staging a come-back, because of the depression, and I speak from personal experience when I say, I know these earnest people would welcome the opportunity to tell you their problems, and to receive your suggestions for the solution.

Perpetual Wishes

You know the problems of those who face the necessity of beginning all over again. There are thousands of people in America today who would like to know how they can convert ideas into money, people who must start at scratch, without finances, and recoup their losses. If anyone can help them, you can.

If you publish the book, I would like to own the first copy that comes from the press, personally autographed by you.

With best wishes, believe me,
Cordially yours,

Principles Worth Repeating

Thousands of people in America, and thousands more across the world, are still in need of such resources. And this timeless classic is one of them. It’s been said many times and is worth repeating again—the principles of success are timeless, ageless, and work as well today as they did back then. Only thankfully now the resource is at the ready, and we do not need to wait for it!

  1. Yeah, I do agree with you that the principles of success are timeless and these principles will maximize your real potential to lead a balanced and fulfilled life.

    thanks for my morning get up and go Sean, see you hear again.

  3. Hi Sean,

    Just dropping in after learning about your diving exploits.

    Tidy site you have here – good to see the LOA message posted in such a clean n crisp way,

    You’re always welcome to smell the flowers with us, Sean.


    GO! Smell the flowerss last blog post..Announcing 4 guest writers at GO! Smell the flowers…

  4. Thanks Jim. I often call in for a read as you have an interesting group of writers there. I actually know Doc Nicole well. We reviewed her blog a while back on DoYouDiggit.com

    Hi Sean,
    I think we should all be so grateful that Napoleon Hill was willing to write ‘Think and Grow Rich’ and share his knowledge with the world. Also, I am grateful to you Sean for making Hill’s book free for anyone who wants a copy. You obviously care deeply about making the world a better place.
    Clearly the Congressman also cared deeply about making the world a better place. It can be tough starting over and ‘Think and Grow Rich’ gives us that glimmer of hope that we can create a new financial destiny for ourselves.

  6. Its fascinating how this letter could have just been written – how do we manage to repeat history to such a degree? It seems like we haven’t learned the message yet.

    On the other hand that makes it much easier for us this time around – we have solutions shown to us that have proven over time that they actually work. Like the principals in “Think and Grow Rich”. Now we just have to make sure that more and more people know them, understand them and use them.

    Well done Sean – you are contributing to humanity not repeating that sad part of history (again).

  7. If there’s an opportunity missed by one person, that’s an opportunity there to be picked up by someone else. Question is, who will it be?

  8. Hi Sean,
    To “render so great a service” still has as much importance today as it did back then and, as indicated Sean, nothing much has changed. People are still looking towards the same values today that motivated people back then.

    In Jennings Randolph’s conclusion to his letter he talks of a “priceless service” and of converting ideas into money. I see you are the one helping people to do that here today.

  9. Some information is so timeless though we often don’t realize it.

    It has to be considered new for some people to value it.

  10. The message that shouts out to me from today’s post is; ” …The message is worth repeating over and over and over and over….the principles of success are timeless, ageless, and work as well today as they did back then. ” These princeples work – the only thing missing is our application.

  12. Hi Sean,
    The principles of success are timeless and so Napoleon Hills book is a classic.

    The principles of Common Law work in the same way and are very closely related to the works of Andrew Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. Common Law is the law of the community. Every member wants to follow the principles of the law because it is beneficial and is a necessary law for the community to function and thrive.

    Bad statute laws can only be implimented by using fear as a weapon.

  13. Hi Sean

    It is always beneficial to be reminded that the principles of Mr Hills’ book are timeless and ageless.

    You have done a great service by freely giving this book via the internet.
    Even though I read this book many years ago and it helped me in a considerable way, through your articles I am prompted to study it again as I strive for a much higher level of existence.

    I am now relearning the principles of TAGR, taking massive action and will prove that they work.
    Thankyou for your kindness.

    Hi, Sean;

    History continues to repeat itself and Napoleon Hill’s message is still needed just as badly as it was then. And we are still recovering from the economic turmoil that was prevalent 2 years ago when you posted this. Progress is being made, however slowly it seems to be happening. Part of the proof of the message is that we can Think and Grow Rich even during times such as these.

    • Perhaps, more so in times like these Elizabeth. A read of Napoleon Hill’s thoughts and wisdom are the perfect pick-me-up for times when we feel like despairing about the future.

      • Hi Peter,

        I completely agree with you. Napoleon Hill shows us that when we change out thinking we can change our physical world. At any moment we can start over and begin to apply the principles of Think and Grow Rich.

        The principles of success will work today as well as at any other time in history. It all comes down to whether or not we’re willing to do the work.

        • Well, Jazz, you have given an excellent example of being willing to work – so I hope you stay on top here and win as you have shared a lot of helpful ideas and tips in your comments. It all contributes to our learning. Thanks

      • Elizabeth says:

        That is very true, Peter. It definitely picks me up when I get into a worrying state of mind. That book and The Secret Law of Attraction both are great for picking me up and reminding me that I really have nothing to worry about.
