There has been much attention paid to “The Secret” book and movie in the past couple of years. It has wonderful, inspiring information. But the information is not new. As they state in the movie, this “secret” has been known by successful people throughout history.
Napoleon Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich” talks about the importance of what you think and how it it creates your reality. He doesn’t call it the Law of Attraction, but it is the same thing. He says our greatest riches are given to us at birth in the form of the power to control our mind in order to manifest what we want.
W. Clement Stone’s “The Success System that Never Fails” is available in 12 parts. Jack Canfield credits Stone with teaching him the Law of Attraction and starting him on the path to success. Stone lived to be 100. He passed away in 2002. When he talks about selling papers a age 6, he is talking about 1908 in Chicago. He started out in poverty. His father gambled away the family money before he died when little Clement was only 3 years old. Stone became a very successful man.
Here are Parts 1, 2 and 3 so you can follow on from there.
