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!
You know what’s funny? How the time on your hands isn’t mostly used on your purpose and your goals then when something threatens that time you panic and complain, “Now I won’t have time to … . ” You’re consistent at being inconsistent. Tyler Durden’s first rule of innovation is “No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.” What happen to being an anti-crastinator? Hmmm? You do not look like success. You do not smell like success. You do not taste like success. And, I know you do not feel like a success at this moment. You need to runny nose read Outwitting The Devil again to fight this drifting you’re doing. You part of that 98% until you master it.
You have not been a good father, to your 3 month young brainchild. The programmer thing, right? Well, I’ve got some news that really isn’t news because you think in possibilities, which means, you played with this thought before. Har-old, you do NOT need a partner to get this baby started! Instantaneous success. This is a low resistance level idea. A 180 from the Yeebizan. Now how are you going to use the last 2 days of 2011 to be the father of the year in 2012? Hmmm? Your hat is waiting on you!
Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit.
Hill went on further to say, “Despite the benefits with which we may get from adversities and unpleasant experiences of every nature no one desires to meet with these experiences.” Time to test Hill’s philosophy. What if you became the one who did desire to meet with such experiences? Har-old, what if you planned your “failures” as a way to gain wisdom? Hmmm? Plan to get caught. Start a fire. Of course!!! #MasterMind
In the October 22, 2011 letter, of the following fortune, I had this to say,
Har-old, I was gone wait until Saturday to letter you this one, but, how could I ignore the brightness of your “lucky” star? Really? Let’s live in the moment for a minute. Your mind yielded to you the Yeebizan’s successor; you found your “Mark Zuckerberg”; your first 100k isn’t bitchy; the world’s highest paid profession is calling you; you move into your first apartment on the 1st. I must ask you …
Do you really need 3 more days? Haha!
Look in the mirror, kid. You’re looking Har+new+ish.
Like BooBear said,
And just think it’s only the beginning!
P.S. To celebrate, I’m waving bye-bye to the iPhone notepad and changing FY’s theme to something more futuristic. But we gone keep it in the Apple family. Hint, hint. Effective tomorrow!

What do you see in the picture to the right?
If you see the doughnut, you see the solution.
If you see the hole only, you see the problem.
As Napoleon Hill said,
The failures see the hole in the doughnut but don’t see the doughnut around the hole.
The successes see the hole also but they see the doughnut around the hole.
If you’re only seeing the hole, it’s time to start buying the creme-filled, Har-old. However, don’t buy ’em if you’re just gone punch out the hole with fear, doubt and disbelief.
If you can’t see the forest for the trees, just look down at the creme-filled doughnut trail I left you. It will lead you to my neck of the woods. In hindsight, you will kick yourself with the back of your foot. But this is Futuristically Yours, we’re about foresight, so, I want you to think ahead. Here’s what I mean …
Think about all the things you regret and get mad at yourself over but still continue to do. Now the next time you’re in one of your “trying moments,” right before you give in, imagine you did it, then ask yourself: How do I feel? Obviously, you will not feel good. You don’t have to actually experience it to feel because your imagination is strong enough, kid.
Think first. Think ahead. Always. You’re already parts of me. When Har-old gets angry, it heightens Har+new’s resolve. Think about that!
