Success and Something Greater: Your Magic Key

Sharon L. Lechter and Greg Reid. Sound Wisdom, $27.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-64095-073-3
Financial literacy advocate Lechter and motivational speaker Reid, who previously coauthored Three Feet from Gold, once again build on the ideas of success guru Napoleon Hill (1883–1970), devoting this insightful work to exploring the impact of mindset on success and failure. The authors discuss the challenges of overcoming negative thinking, claiming that three to five positive thoughts are required to counteract just a single negative one, and that, per Hill, “the more emotion we give that [negative] thought, the greater the probability that the thought will come to fruition.” They also explore, among other topics, living purposefully, goal-setting, overcoming impediments to one’s goals, and modeling oneself on visionary leaders, offering case studies to illustrate the different lessons they share and relating each piece of wisdom to Hill’s philosophy. Additional areas include “changing your world,” setting milestones, and possessing the determination to win. Offering an inspirational plan for seeking success, this work will no doubt please Hill’s legions of followers and bring new admirers into the fold. (Sept.)
