Is That A $20 Bill You’re Using As A Bookmark?

Yeah, sure is! I also use a Lord Of The Rings bookmark for my bible.

From your grandma saying, “just because you can save money doesn’t mean you will be rich” to your dad suggesting you let Smith & Nephew kill your entrepreneurial spirit, Napoleon would like to remind you of something,

Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.

I know you wanted to stick a fork in their tongue after they said such a strange combination of words, but, like Hill said, they’re well-meaning, however, IGNORANT. It’s like what Will Smith said to his son in The Pursuit of Happyness,

Christopher Gardner: Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. All right?

Christopher: All right.

Christopher Gardner: You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.

Then, you cried. Wouldn’t it have been so encouraging had they said something like that instead of giving you a 100 reasons why it can’t be done?

They can’t do it themselves(well, they can but they don’t have faith), don’t know anyone who did it(outside the famous), so when you DO IT, you will educate the ignorant. The lesson is simple: YOU CAN WILL DO ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO. All actions are first clothed in a thought. Even the smallest of baby steps. And things you don’t have to think about no more are second nature, which means habit, so make sure your thought patterns continue to be power, success and opulence.

Here’s to superior minds! Cheers.



P.S. I want you to read Meet the tireless entrepreneur who squatted at AOL , think of an opinion about Eric Simons, then read the comments. See the difference between you and THEM? How can you not have anything other than praise for this kid? How? How is it possible? Well, congratulations, Har-old, you found a soul mate. Enjoy your 9 to 5, suckas!

  1. Haha! I like it and it is so timely. I’ve been TV stalking Iyanla Vanzant for about 10 years. I don’t watch TV but I always find her when she’s on. She was talking about how no one will encourage you when you want to do something different, but you still have to go after your dreams. I am in the same place. I think that you can’t hear enough times to keep going despite what others tell you. To me this is why a supportive community is so important because outside of your inner circle, almost everyone else is too afraid to believe and sometimes even too afraid to NOT criticize…sounds strange doesn’t it, but from what I’ve seen it really seems to be true. Anyway, I’ll root for anyone with a dream! Go for it!
