Have you met your “Other Self”?

Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill – Inspirational!

I came across this powerful extract in Napoleon Hill’s inspirational book, “Think and Grow Rich” published in 1937, and written with a backdrop of the Great Depression.

You have been disappointed, you have undergone defeat during the depression, you have felt the great heart within you crushed until it bled. Take courage, for those experiences have tempered the spiritual metal of which you are made – they are assets of incomparable value.

Remember, too, that all who succeed in life get off to a bad start, and pass through many heartbreaking struggles before they “arrive”. The turning point in the lives of those who succeed, usually comes at the moment of some crisis, through which they are introduced to their “other selves”.”

Have you met your “other self”?

I know it is a terrible time for so many people but I would really urge them to dig deep (or even deeper as the case may be), try to look for the positives or the “unique” opportunities and eventually you will find a new and possible very rewarding and fulfilling path.

    It’s also mentioned at great length in Hill’s most recently published work, “Outwitting The Devil”.

    As great as “Think and Grow Rich” is, it merely provides us the principles whereas “Outwitting The Devil” explains how to actively apply those principles in the now and persistently so.

    Your article would be more beneficial if you defined what the “Other Self” is. e.g. the faith-based entity whose every thought is blended with faith whereby all contrary thoughts of the fear-based entity are rejected, ignored, cancelled out etc.

    Thank you for sharing a powerful excerpt. It resonates with any bedfellow of hardship.
