YOU HAVE A UNIQUE PERSONALITY AND AN UNBELIEVABLE POTENTIALITY IN YOU...



















Pic.: Fr. Reginald Pinto




“You have a unique personality

and an unbelievable potentiality in you.

Success lies in exploring this hidden wealth in you…

In unleashing the hidden power of your personality.”




No one can explain the mystery of your uniqueness. Billions of people have come on this earth and gone and they will come and go… But, God will produce each one of us, here, in a special mould. There is no duplication in His factory… He sends each one of us with a unique stamp on us…

He gives you a unique finger-print…

He gives you a unique voice…

He gives you your own unique gifts and talents…

He gives you your own special feelings and sensitivities… Your own very special aspirations and dreams…

Yes, He sends you fully-loaded with wealth and power…

But, dear, it is like you inheriting those proverbial ‘acres of diamond’… Imagine, spending your lifetime without knowing the value of your inheritance… without being aware of the colossal wealth that lay right bellow your feet… and lay there all your life!

Your talents and gifts are pre-loaded in you by the benevolent God… call Him Universe or Existence, whatever you wish… But, it is there right inside you… and, it is there in abundance… Loads and loads of it.

So, dear, become aware of it, now… Become aware of your wealth… Feel the acres of diamonds, right beneath your feat... 


The day you set out to explore this wealth… 
is the day you resolve to succeed in life…
 

Yes, your success in life lies, essentially, in exploring your hidden wealth in you… in realizing your God-given talents and gifts…

Yes, in unleashing the hidden power of your personality.

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.
