DETERMINATION, DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE, and the desire TO ATTAIN THE GOAL, and the PERSISTENT EFFORT OF TWENTY- FIVE YEARS? It was no ordinary desire that survived disappointment, discouragement, temporary defeat, criticism, and the constant reminding of “waste of time.” It was a BURNING desire! an OBSESSION! When the idea was fi rst planted in my mind by Mr. Carnegie, it was coaxed, nursed, and enticed to remain alive . Gradually, the idea became a giant under its own power, and it coaxed, nursed, and drove me. Ideas are like that. First you give life and action and guidance to ideas, then they take on power of their own and sweep aside all opposition. Ideas are intangible forces, but they have more power than the physical brains that give birth to them. They have the power to live on. Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill An Action Summary
