Philosopher Thomas Carlyle wrote "Even in the meanest sorts of Labor, the whole soul of a man is composed into a kind of real harmony the instant he sets himself to work." Manual labor and mental labor can be fulfilling, but they are not the same thing. Physical work opens a pathway to our creative thinking and imagination via our subconscious mind. When we are engaged in a physical work activity, our mind is free to roam and explore ideas and opportunities that may be pushed to the back of our thoughts because other thoughts have priority.

Kinja Dixon describes his experience with Napoleon Hill Leader Certification after the recent event in Indiana.
Stepping outside of our everyday activities causes us to access what is important in our lives. More often than not, I find myself missing home. Home to me is where I go to be in my own space within my own time frame, and comfortable with my own thoughts. I do not want to be on someone else’s schedule, do someone else’s tasks, or be beholden in any way to another. Home has a special ambience that encompasses memories from the past, hopes for the future, while living in the timeframe of the ever present now. Time can and does stand still at home, and transcends whatever is the concern or diversion for the moment. Both my ancestors and descendants form an embracing circle of caring that is comprehensive and only understood in the moment. I call that moment home.
As I was sitting in my barber’s chair today, he confided in me that his business was in financial trouble and that he couldn’t seem to shake the funk that he is in. So I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce him to Dr. Napoleon Hill’s Science of Success....
Dr. Wayne Dyer states: "Your life must be open to Spirit's guidance in order for you to feel inspired. So whatever it takes to feel joy, you simply must act upon it." In other words, what brings us joy makes us feel enthusiastic, and enthusiasm is the fuel we need in order to start our engines. Ask yourself what makes you joyful, and you will find a direct path to enthusiasm. Pay attention to what inspires you and causes your heart to leap. This is the first step in the direction of your life's purpose.

Action is what determines our level of leadership in the world today. Sitting back, noticing and not responding, waiting and hoping, and looking for a sure thing all contribute to a dormant attitude followed by non-action. If we wait for just the perfect moment to respond, we are not on the cusp of leadership, we are usually on the tail end.
