A fresh, modern look at the core theme of Napoleon Hill’s revolutionary best seller. In this inspiring contemporary fable, a young writer sets out to interview business leaders and other influential figures about the importance of persistence in attaining your goals. Through motivational real-life stories,Three Feet from Gold offers advice about having passion for what you do, finding your own Success Formula, choosing good counsel, and above all: never giving up.
Based on the principles outlined in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, authors and veteran financial officers Lechter and Reid craft an engaging allegory to illustrate Hill’s principals of success. Readers follow everyman Greg as he pursues happiness and success with the help of fictional guru Jonathan Buckland, who arranges a series of meetings and experiences which ultimately guide readers to better understand the mindset which leads to success. Like Hill, Lechter and Reid believe that, though “there are many things you cannot control,” the factors critical to success are within an individuals’ control: namely, “your mind and your attitude.” As such, each short, story-driven chapter includes quotes from Hill and other luminous successes, while taking Greg point-by-point through acquiring knowledge (about vision, opportunity, taking action, following through and more), and applying it. Readers won’t ever get bored with Lechter and Reid’s brisk text, and it’s ameliorated by plenty of review. Big ideas are developed artfully by revisiting and building upon previously introduced concepts. This volume should interest both sophisticated and novice followers of Napoleon Hill, or anyone looking for a practical take on the power of a positive outlook. ~ Publisher Weekly
