Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill . . . Free Digital Download Edition
I wish I had read this book years ago, not months or weeks ago . . . But years ago!!! I understand that this book, published first in 1937, is the primer for all success and self-improvement manuals that came after it. I’ve just finished reading an audio book of this book offered through Brian Johnson’s Philosopher’s Notes website.
After listening to the audio content and reading the ebook brief, I thought to go through the entire book, as Mr. Napoleon Hill had originally intended. So I found the Think-and-Grow-Rich website, and downloaded the completed digital edition.
I recently started to re-read my copy of Wallace D. Wattles’ book, The Science of Getting Rich.
I have been working with this online marketing thing for so long with only residual results, that I decided to start with my foundation, and that, according to Mr. Wattles, would to change the foundation of my thinking. So I’ve focused on just that, to re-orient my thinking toward success and getting rich, not to continue to focus on my woes and problems.
I will keep you updated about my progress, from real terms, not just the fluff. Suffice it to say right now that changing our thinking and thinking habits might just be the most difficult thing any of us could do in our lives, but if successful in this, the potential for other success in circumstances will be phenomenal!
You can order the book in PDF format, or in a 2-CD Audiobook. I found the audiobook even more beneficial as I downloaded it to my smartphone to listen.

So . . . you all now know my experience in learning how to swim . . . the pool . . . the ice cold water . . . and the bees!
And what exactly does swimming have to do with doing an online business?
Well . . . let’s look at the whole swimming mindset . . . and the online business mindset. And keep in mind, this is from my personal experience . . . in both swimming and doing business online.
As you’ve probably concluded, I’ve pretty much known how to swim since I was about nine years old . . . Now I’m on the declining side of 60, and still swimming, probably better now than I ever have. But that’s another story. Suffice it to say that swimming might be one of the best exercises – besides walking – for senior fitness . . . of course if you know how to swim. Even water exercises and water aerobics are wonderful options.
Now what does swimming have to do with an online business?

The online business landscape is much like an ocean . . . sometimes calm and mostly stormy. Many of us are not really sharks or whales in this ocean of online business and marketing. Most of us are guppies or at best minnows just barely swimming in a huge current of SEOs, leads, emails, spams, safelists, and a world of other cyber entities that consume our energy, time, attention and learning skills. We try our best to learn all the secrets, techniques, special strategies to help improve our online presence only to see a marked deficiency in our time, and in many cases our monthly income, which though there is an increase output, the input is about the same or even less.
A simple phrase that unfortunately we don’t seem to hear much these days . . . anywhere. The simple act of behaving in a way that other people see or perceive where there is no sense of fear, dread, suspicion, paranoia or doubt about your actions, intentions or next steps.

Editor’s Note: The following post is a reprint of a post I shared several months ago. I have chosen to share it again on my on blog site. I hope you enjoy the read and feel free to add comments.
We are all here for one primary goal, and that is to develop, improve or start a home based business in some way.
Some of us might have products that we make or produce, and we want to expand to a wider market than we already have. Others may be on some level of personal development toward building an online business presence. While still others are working with various MLM programs to help meet their dreams.
Editor’s Note: The video in the post was produced several months ago. While I still have the same point of view regarding the need to do a self=assessment as an aspiring entrepreneur, I have, as a result of one self-assessment, chosen to end my participation with one of the links in the video. – – – Thanks . . .

Businesses and organizations perform audits to assess their current progress and productivity.
