  • Notas minhas:
    • "Who said it could not be done? And what great victories has he to his credit which qualify him to judge others accurately?" (Napoleon Hill)
    •  The Master Mind:
      • Co-operate >> Perfect Harmony >> Master Mind
        • Example of formation of a Master Mind: Mr. Ford, Mr. Firestone e Mr. Thomas Edison together
      • "Education - let us not forget this - consists of the power with which to get everything one needs when he needs it, without violating the rights of his fellow men." (Napoleon Hill)

        • Mind in the Making - Robinson
    • Lesson one: A definite chief aim
      • "You can do it if you believe you can!"
      • "The best rose bush, after all, is not that which has the fewest thorns, but that which bears the finest roses." (Henry van Dyke)
      • "Humility is a forerunner of success." (Napoleon Hill)
      • "The best place to study the man-animal is in your own mind, by taking as accurate an inventory as possible of YOURSELF. When you know yourself thoroughly (if you ever do) you will also know much about others." (Napoleon Hill)
      • An old farmer up in Vermont always used to wind up his prayers with this plea: "Oh, God, give me an open mind!" If more people followed his example they might escape being harmstrung by prejudices. And what a pleasant place to live in the world would be. (Napoleon Hill)
      • "Success is the development of the power with which to get whatever one wants in life without interfering with the rights of others." (Napoleon Hill)
      • "Power is organized energy or effort." (Napoleon Hill)
      • Definite purpose in life.
      • "Like attracts like, and you may see evidence of this law in every blade of grass and every growing tree." (Napoleon Hill)
      • "Do not 'tell' the world what you can do - 'show' it!" (Napoleon Hill)
      • "No undesirable environment is strong enough to hold the man or woman who understands how to apply the principle of Auto-suggestion in the creation of a definite chief aim." (Napoleon Hill)
      • "If success depends upon power, and if power is organized effort, and if the first step in the direction of organization is a definite purpose, then one may easily see why such a purpose is essential." (Napoleon Hill)
      • Burning desire >> definite purpose >> action
      • "You cannot succeed when surrounded by disloyal and unfriendly associates, no matter what may be the object of your definite chief aim. Success is built upon loyalty, faith, sincerity, co-operation and the other positive forces with which one must surcharge his environment." (Napoleon Hill)

Que a estrada se abra à sua frente,
Que o vento sopre levemente em suas costas,
Que o sol brilhe morno e suave em sua face,
Que a chuva caia de mansinho em seus campos,
E, até que nos encontremos, de novo, que Deus lhe guarde nas palmas de suas mãos!
