New Year’s Morning Gift

This morning after getting out of the bed I went to check my email, expecting to have something interesting—and guessed right. I opened the Networking Times email [“A New Year’s Message from the CEO: Moral Compensation,” an interview with Bob Proctor] and received confirmation of all my beliefs and love for this great business called network marketing.

I love the interview, I love the interviewer, I love the interviewee. John Milton Fogg is one of my favorite authors and Bob Proctor became one of my masters, one of my teachers, one of my leaders, one of my uplines in this new and misunderstood and wonderful win/win industry.

This business is the most valuable opportunity I could find in my life and it will be for the rest of my existence. It is the only light in the dark to recover, help and improve the human condition in every area. Bob Proctor, through his educational material and strong desire to help people, is transforming the world, changing people’s minds for the better and forever, including mine. Thank you very much Mr. Bob!

Mr. Napoleon Hill, I am reading and re-re-re-reading your book. I am sure you are in a very good place because God loves you for your great work for the whole of humanity. I am making copies of this interview and giving it to people who still cannot understand the philosophy of this new way of cooperation, help, sharing, shining the light or whatever we can call the network marketing business. Thanks again and God bless you forever.

100 Quotes from The Secret

We just received your “100 Quotes from The Secret.” We are very excited to have them all, yet we are concerned about the way they are worded. Many of them are not direct quotes but paraphrases of what the speakers said, such as Esther Hicks.

We believe it is important to use the exact words so as to convey the exact meaning and not change the message. For example: Esther’s quote that was paraphrased in quote 16. It says there are good feelings and bad feelings. In the film, Esther is clear that there are thoughts that feel good and thoughts that feel bad.

We believe the first step into personal power is realizing that there is no Good or Bad. There is only our experience, which we label based on how it makes us feel, which in turn allows us to know if we are in alignment with what we really desire.

This is being the creator of your reality and a deeper understanding of the Law of Attraction.

Children’s “Success” Reading List

Has anyone ever written an article or can someone recommend a source that would outline books parents or, in my case, grandparents should have their children or grandchildren read? Also, at what age should we begin the process?

Dr. John C. Maxwell and Charlie “Tremendous” Jones have stated that their parents had them read Dale Carnegie’s book How to Win Friends and Influence People at an early age and then each month read other positive thinking and important non-fiction works. In reading Mark Yarnell’s article “Follow the Reader” [see Free Resources at], the comments I had heard from Maxwell and Jones came back to me.

Does such a list exist? Has a writer ever addressed this issue?
