Great thoughts by Napoleon Hill

“If you serve an ungrateful master, serve him the more. Put God in your debt. Every stroke shall be repaid. The longer the payment is withholden, the better for you; for compound interest on compound interest is the rate and usage of this exchequer.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The habit brings the individual to the favorable attention of those who can and will provide opportunities for self-advancement.

It tends to make one indispensable, in many different human relationships, and it therefore enables him to command more than average compensation for personal services.

It leads to mental growth and to physical skill and perfection in many forms of endeavor, thereby adding to one’s earning capacity.

It protects one against the loss of employment when employment is scarce, and places him in a position to command the choicest of jobs.

It enables one to profit by the law of contrast, since the majority of people do not practice the habit.

It leads to the development of a positive, pleasing mental attitude, which is essential for enduring success.

It tends to develop a keen, alert imagination because it is a habit which inspires one continuously to seek new and better ways of rendering service.

It develops the important quality of personal initiative.

It develops self-reliance and courage.

It serves to build the confidence of others in one’s integrity.

It aids in the mastery of the destructive habit of procrastination.

It develops definiteness of purpose, insuring one against the common habit of aimlessness.
