YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR WORLDLY SUCCESS...

“You are solely responsible

for your worldly success and happiness.

Have a lofty ambition and a right attitude…

You can achieve anything

That you conceive and believe in your mind.”



The early you accept this truth, the better for you:

Your success in this world is your own business... So is your happiness.

All arguments end with this acceptance… All excuses… All self-pity… All blame-games!

May there be a lofty ambition in your heart… and may there be a right attitude…

Ambition is the wind in your heart… Attitude is the mast of your mind… You need both for the voyage called ‘success in life’…

The more you trust in your abilities, the more you rely on your intuitions, the more you learn to trust in your decisions… the more proactive you become in life…



In responsibility – your ability to respond to 
situations and challenges in your life - 
you will feel the power of your freedom…


With this kind of ambition and attitude, dear, you can achieve, in life, anything…

Yes, anything that our mind is able to conceive and believe… you are able to achieve.

P.S.:

In the early 80’s, as a stranger and a struggling young-man in this big city of Mumbai (then Bombay), I was filled with self-doubts and fears. My self-confidence level was at its lowest pit, and I was gripped with anxiety about my future. It was during these harrowing times, I had found on the roadside an old copy of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s inspirational classic – ‘Think & Grow Rich’… 

My life was destined to change, immediately!

I have been so influenced by Dr. Napoleon Hill’s ‘Success philosophy’ - particularly his famous line: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” - that it would be impossible for me to shed off this influence all my life.

So, as a young-teacher in his twenties, when I had scribbled those passages in the little booklet ‘THE DAWN’, they loudly – and proudly - echoed the core tenets of Dr. Hill’s life-lessons. What he had assimilated from the lives of scores of successful people and passed on to us, I was now trying to do, in my own way, to my students…

With my deepest humility and reverence, I dedicate this book ‘THE ECHOES OF THE DAWN’ - to the one who made me ‘Stand up’ in life…Dr. Napoleon Hill.
