It will help you understand how your thoughts or paradigms affect your daily life and results. This one piece of information has been and continues to be, the number one reason for failure.

Generate your wealth by reading Napoleon Hill and focusing on this one program.

Accurate Analysis

The following quote is right out of Napoleon’s book. I want to quote him for you to get the full impact of his words and how indecision causes failure.

He said. “Accurate analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure disclosed the fact that lack of decision was near the head of the 30 major causes of failure.” Indecision was at the top he says, not near the end of the top 30 causes.

He also said. “This isn’t any mere statement of theory it’s a fact. Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million-dollar mark disclosed this fact.” Everyone in the study had the habit of reaching decisions promptly.  And, they changed their minds slowly if and when they changed them at all.

A Side Note

A side note for you to keep in mind in reading his words. This text transpired back in 1930. A million dollars back then was a significant amount of money. It’s not such a big chunk today, but back then it would have been considered a fortune to many.

Napoleon continued. “People failed to accumulate money without exception. When they had the habit of reaching decisions if at all very slowly and in changing those decisions quickly and often.”

This is what he says about leaders in society. “Those who reach decisions promptly and definitely know what they want, and they generally get it. The leaders in every walk of life decide quickly and firmly. That’s the major reason why they’re leaders.” Again, indecision is an indication of followers, not leaders.

The takeaway you need to understand from this post is to trust your gut and trust your judgment. Make sound decisions, make them quickly and with laser focus then move forward to implement steps of action.

Don’t allow the nay-sayers or your fear to delay you in your progress. Move forward on the sound decision you make. The answers and ideas to succeed will begin to come to you.

To Your Success,
