The Purpose Driven Life

I’ve been reading some Napoleon Hill lately, specifically The Purpose Driven Life.  In case you’re not familiar with Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970), he was an American author who was one of the earliest writers of personal-success literature.  He is considered to be one of the best writers on success.  His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies).  Hill’s works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success.  “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is one of Hill’s best-known quotes.  How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach of the average person, were the focal points of Hill’s books.
The subtitle of The Purpose Driven Life is “The principle of definiteness of purpose, the starting point of all individual achievements”, and that really says it all.  The book is actually a collection of lectures he gave in Chicago.
I have found this actually fits perfectly with the whole idea of internet marketing without stress.  Mr. Hill says that “you have to have a purpose, you have to have a plan, and you have to start putting that plan into action”.  What could be more straightforward?  For today, work on defining your purpose, your “why”.
