25 years ago, during a time of great personal adversity – financial, emotional, spiritual, and even physical – I was introduced to the Think and Grow Rich Philosophy. Imagine losing everything in a business venture, going through bankruptcy, having a huge debt with no income, and two young children and a wife to support. When you are in that state, you look anywhere you can for answers. You feel that the whole world is against you. I am sure some of you can relate to this. During this period in my life, I made a "foolish" decision to spend the last of my savings on a course called "The Science of Success". I was laughed at and called a fool for taking this course rather than finding a job to support my family.
Only one person trusted me and told me that the decision to take this course would the best decision I would ever make in my life. This person encouraged that I would know the value of the knowledge gained from the Science of Success when I became a successful, happy and prosperous person again. "You were always a winner and always will be," he told me, "and this bankruptcy might be the best thing that ever happened to you." He told me that when I became successful again, I should tell others not to listen to the naysayers who discourage them in difficult times. He also told me to make a promise to him that when this philosophy brought me peace of mind and happiness, I should teach the Science of Success to others so they too could learn to throw away the chains of limitations and harness the stupendous power of their own minds to direct to whatever end they choose. I stood by that promise and I acquired the rights from the Napoleon Hill Foundation to teach this philosophy to all who are haunted by fear of failure, poverty, criticism, who lack confidence, and who don't know what power lies dormant within them that needs only a stimulus to be ignited, so that they can live a life of purpose and happiness and achieve anything.
In conclusion, I want to introduce you to this great person who brought me where I am today. That person is my inner voice, my spirit, my hopes, my dreams, and my other-self. If your inner voice tells you that this philosophy of success will also make you prosperous, healthy, and bring you peace of mind and happiness – as it has brought to so many others around the world – then please, enroll yourself into this practical philosophy immediately.
I wish you a tremendous life full of peace, happiness, prosperity and purpose.
