“Pay it forward” has become a popular term that means responding to someone’s random act of kindness by doing a random act of kindness for someone else. An example of this is when one person does a good deed, and the deed continues to multiply to others. Napoleon Hill would most likely categorize this idea under his success principle of Going the Extra Mile.
On September 19, 2017 Penguin will release a fantastic book by Napoleon Hill called How to Own Your Own Mind. This new book is available as a pre-order on Amazon. Napoleon Hill followers realize that he placed a large emphasis on Definiteness of Purpose and declared it to be the starting point of all achievement. However, if simply having a definite purpose was the only requirement to be successful, we could desire anything in life and it would appear. But it takes many more success principles to accomplish our burning desire.
Probably most of us have had an occasion when someone is attempting to teach others yet lack the knowledge and skills to be qualified to do so. For example, we should only seek medical advice, financial advice, or other skills we want to learn from those that have demonstrated they are capable of teaching what we want to learn.
For thousands of years, storytelling has been a way to pass history on to the next generation. Even today, many great speakers choose to tell a story in order to get their message across. Using a story to convey a particular message is an excellent tool for doing so. Great stories are easy to remember, and though little details of the story may be forgotten over time, the message of the story has a tendency to remain.
Becoming a millionaire is not too difficult and can simply be done by having a purpose, a plan, and persistence. If you have a purpose of why you want to reach a certain goal, then you most likely will have a passion for that goal as well.

However, President Dwight Eisenhower said that if all you want is food, clothing, and shelter, you can find all three of those items in prison.
Coming to Orlando, Florida, in September 2017. The decision to take up this course will truly be the turning point of your life.
The old Greek proverb explains to me what paying it forward means: “A society grows great when old men plant trees they know whose shade they shall never sit in.” Paying it forward simply means taking the time and effort to make a positive influence in someone’s life when you have been the recipient of a good deed.
Maintaining sound health not only allows us to live a longer life, but also increases our quality of life as well. When Napoleon Hill wrote Law of Success in 1928, he was forty five years old and was only fifty four years old when he wrote Think and Grow Rich in 1937. Then, he did not put as much emphasis on sound health, as he did in his later years. As he grew older, Napoleon Hill realized that maintaining sound health was essential to being truly successful.
We often know or hear about people who have lived in this life and left a legacy behind. I think this Greek proverb explains leaving a legacy best: “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” Sir Winston Churchill is credited with saying, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” It is easy to assume that helping or giving to others only involves monetary gifts. However, sometimes the help can come by giving away our talents or time, such as cleaning up the environment, or serving on a non-profit board.
