i-TFTD #80

i-TFTD #80

#80-1. Whatever the mind of a person can conceive and believe - IT CAN ACHIEVE.
-Napoleon Hill

#80-2. People who consider themselves victims of their circumstances will always remain victims unless they develop a greater vision for their lives.

-Stedman Graham

#80-3. A certain amount of opposition is a great help to man. Kites rise against, not with, the wind.
-John Neal

The second one is so true. In fact a bestseller book called "The Road Less Travelled" by Scott Peck, starts by saying that this "Why me/us?" is a very common feeling of individuals, communities and even countries.

I like to remember the third one.

Napolean Hill was one of the first authors who brought the power of positive thinking into prominence with his books. The first time I read about this idea was in a book called, "Bring Out the Magic of Your Mind" by Al Koran. Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon, explained why this works in his book, "Psycho-cybernetics". This powerful concept is now accepted wisdom amongst top achievers in sports and business. Apparently this same concept is elaborated in a recent bestseller by Rhonda Byrnes called "The Secret" where she calls it The Law of Attraction.
