How to create the future you desire

Where you start from is not as important as the attitude you start with. You are made for the big stage, but don’t get it twisted, you need to start small and work yourself up the ladder. The bane of today's youths is the lure of overnight success. However, real success requires a process, just as every great building begins with a foundation before reaching the superstructure.

Cultivating your mind the right way

Napoleon Hill's quote - more gold had been mined from the mind of man than earth itself
The battles of life are primarily won and lost in the mind. Your mind is your greatest asset because it holds limitless possibilities when properly channeled. “Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life” is an admonition that shouldn’t be lightly esteemed. What the mind of man can conceive, it can produce. The tallest buildings we see today were first built in the mind before they were actually brought to life. The same goes for all the groundbreaking inventions made by man over the years.
