Third Time’s a Charm

As you read these words in a newspaper, magazine, or online publication somewhere around the world, I want you to know I owe you a great debt of gratitude. This weekly column began 20 years ago, and as we approach the 1,000th edition of Winners’ Wisdom, my publisher, in conjunction with The Napoleon Hill Foundation, is releasing a third compilation volume of these columns entitled Wisdom for Winners 3.

All the proceeds from this new book and the two previous volumes are being donated to The Napoleon Hill Foundation to support their ongoing work to extend the legacy and impact of Napoleon Hill and the message of Think and Grow Rich. Napoleon Hill was born in the 19th century, changed the world in the 20th century, and now his timeless message is the basis for many exciting new books, movies, and success tools. I will be releasing a new book and movie project later this year entitled Top of the Hill which is a part of my Homecoming Historical Series that focuses on great people from the past who lived their lives in such a manner that we can use their example as a way to build our own future.

We become what we think about all day, and unfortunately, we are bombarded constantly with negative, distracting, and even destructive messages. Technology has opened the whole world to us, but it has also created the need for everyone to control the input that goes into our minds. If you simply let the media, the Internet, and program producers have free rein in your environment, your likelihood of success will be virtually eliminated.

Our minds are the greatest creation we have to change the world and shape our own lives, but like any other vehicle, your mind is subject to the fuel you put into it. If you put contaminated gasoline in your car, it will begin to run poorly and eventually will stop running at all. If you allow contaminated thoughts to enter your mind, it will cease to function as a vehicle to reach your goals.

These columns each week are designed to give you some positive thoughts. They are not necessarily my thoughts, but hopefully they will become your thoughts. As a columnist, I have discovered that it is not my job to give you answers, but instead, it is my job to frame the questions for which you already have innate answers that will get you from where you are to where you want to be. I am very proud that these columns are now not only available around the world each week but are as close as your bookshelf or eReader where you can access Wisdom for Winners 1, 2, and 3.

Your mind will take you anywhere you want to go if you just keep your tank filled with powerful, positive, and impactful fuel.

As you go through your day today, eliminate contamination and fill up with Wisdom for Winners.

Today’s the day!
