    Anyone can succeed at Internet Marketing given the right desire and the right drive. Many people will quit before success actually happens. I've been reading a book by Napoleon Hill called "Think & Grow Rich" which touches on the mental barriers we face as we try to attain that ultimate goal of financial freedom.

    Anyways, As I was reading it I came across a short story in the book that I feel would be a very good example for you guys to use as future reference when you feel like giving up. The reason I feel it would make a good example, is because I see a very similar story every time I log in to this Forum. People start getting close to making the breakthrough they need to start cashing in, and they simply give up and don't realize how close they actually were. Anyways, On with the quote.

    (Once again, this is not my own writing, this is 100% Napoleon Hill's work)

    The moral of the story is, Don't ever give up. You never truly know when you may only be just 3 feet away from the gold. I highly recommend this book to anyone on this forum, it's very eye opening.

    Link to the amazon page for the book.

    Yep the story is very motivational thanks for sharing it here , it may help some people.
    Like I've said in a previous post of mine , I recommand people reading "Think and Grow Rich " . I've bought mine from a bookstore and It's well worth the price :) If you want to have success then look at the book first. It may be easier to get success after.

    By the way , if you want to know what were the most famous failures of all time then go at youtube and search " Famous Failures" ( Can't post a link
    :( )

    Regards,

    TonyS

    Very good book I started reading it a few weeks ago.
    Btw for those of you who wish to read it for free online, you can find a copy on google books.
    Alternatively you can download the pdf here:

    Brilliant. Just brilliant, obviously i repped and thanked you for that post. Because I have the mentality mentioned in Captainwtf's post I now have 2 employees and am building relationships with the most influencial people in my industry. In fact this morning i got an email from one of those people asking for my help... this is why you dont quit.

    Dont just follow your dream of making the big bucks and having financial freedom, enjoy the journey... If you aren't enjoying the journey then you need to change your chosen industry... Ask yourself, what am I PASSIONATE about? and... how can I start a business whilst utilizing this passion?

    Very informative post! I could sit here, try to encourage people to take action, reference different people and their work until my fingers are numb, and it still wouldn't be as effective as when a member can actually attribute parts of their success to the material I've posted.

    I won't go as far as saying that everything a person needs to succeed is in the book, because there is one thing no book can teach. Your passion. Your drive. Your motivation. Mastering yourself is just as crucial, if not more so, than mastering the various subjects in general business affairs.

    Thanks for the link! I actually started reading this book online before purchasing it, and found it good enough that I wanted a hard copy. I think i spent like 7 bucks total at Barnes and Noble the other day for it, hard to beat that price huh? :p

    The Price is very low considering the Value and Riches in that book. I'm actually reading it and it helps me be LASER Focused. I can't explain why but it really does man.

    Great Book, I first read in in early 2005 and it has been one of my favorite ever since, next only to another masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich".

    BTW, how many of you guys who have read the book actually managed to find out the "secret' mentioned through-out the book as the "secret to riches"?

    For those who would like to know the secret easy way, here is my gift to you. A book called "The hidden secret in think & grow rich". I have also added a PDF version of Think and grow rich with it, so enjoy all you book-lovers!

    Glad to hear it! I felt the same way, and with that in mind I suggest you take a look at a book called "Cashflow Quadrant" by Robert Kiyosaki when you're done with this one. Very top notch and inspiring material in there as well.

    My view on what "the secret" is, is the law of attraction. there seems to be many variations on what exactly that means, but my basic take on it is the key to success is in remaining possitive. Thomas Edision serves as a great example and is even referenced in that book. One of the best definitions I've seen of it is, Your mind doesn't interpet if your thoughts are possitive or negative, it simply notices you are spending much time thinking about it, so you must want it. Its actually very interesting when you get into how your mind works and all that. I'm actually in the middle of writing a book on marketing, but covering the mind set part more than anything else. With of course, Think and Grow Rich as my motivation.

    The secret is, more or less, persistence but anyone just telling someone that won't instill it in them...they have to really dive into Hill's material until the light flips on for themselves.

    Good thread :) Lots of positive vibes in it.

    I have "heard" tons and tons of similar books on audio from torrents on the internet.

    One of THE biggest hurdle we have to overcome is the one in our mind!

    Parts of this book is on youtube just search for napoleon hill on there.

    Also worth checking out a book 4 hour work week, rich dad poor dad.

    I think you will find a common truth from all the books you read. Find that, believe it and live it. Its all in the mind :)

    Rich dad poor dad is an excellent book as well, and to anyone that is planning on reading Cashflow Quadrant I suggest reading Rich Dad Poor Dad first. Both should definately be read at some point however, they are highly motivational and inspiring pieces of literature.

    Another must. I can't post URL here, so google "The Strangest Secret" by Earl Nightingale. There are some Youtube videos you can listen to this on.
    In essence it boils down to this: "we become what we think about"

    Thanks for the story, I have read Think and Grow Rich couple of times and every time
    i read it there is something new for me.

    I agree with beazt "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles is also a must to
    read, if you want to understand "how things come in your life" -

    As far as the riches is concern - It will definitely show up. (Ask - Believe - Receive)

    thanks again.
