Three of the most important things I learned from Napoleon Hill are his writings on The Law Of Compensation, Adversity, and The Mastermind Alliance.
The second richest man in the world at the time, Andrew Carnegie, commissioned Napoleon Hill with a personal letter of introduction so he could interview 500 of the most successful people in the world and ask them what they did to achieve their success. He compiled all that they told him into a Philosophy of Success and wrote the book, “Think And Grow Rich.”
I agree with many things in the book, but what he missed was Destiny.
These people were destined to do what they did and all they created for the benefit of the world. Doing everything the book says and picking a goal that is not your destiny leads to the loss of Peace Of Mind and Disappointment. Napoleon Hill said that we are the masters of our destinies, but that has not proven completely true in my life.
Many people have tried to become President of the United States; made it a passionate goal, did everything they could to achieve it, but still failed because it was not their destiny. This happens in many ways.
A Force greater than us has a plan for us even when we make other plans.
If you read Andrew Carnegie’s Autobiography, you will find he never planned all that he accomplished as a goal when he was a young man. He just did his very best at every job he had no matter what it paid him and he was always promoted, starting from shoveling coal at age of 16, until he was a Billionaire in today’s standards and then most likely promoted as an Angel when he passed. He was blessed to have very good parents and he was a very good and pure person. It was his nature to always do good things and he benefited from The Law of Compensation.
Napoleon Hill said that if you do more than you are paid to do, eventually you will receive more than you do. The Law of Compensation makes sure that we are always compensated for what we do. When we do more than we are paid to do our extra efforts are like a Savings Account drawing interest and LIFE sends it back multiplied when it is time.
The people that do just enough, or less than they are paid to do, or do bad things, only end up stealing from themselves.
No one can cheat The Law of Compensation. Everyone benefits from it, or suffers from it, depending on who they are and what they do.
The people who do not seem to suffer from the bad things they do here will do so when they pass to the next dimension. Every bad deed has to be paid back with interest, as every good deed is returned with interest, and the only way to pay back the bad deeds are with good deeds until the debt is paid.
Some people will take a long time, and some might never pay them back, but that is up to them.

The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie.
He was very angelic and his wife said he died of a broken heart when he saw all the lives lost and the devastation caused by WWI.
Unfortunately, that was was just the beginning of the insane wars of that century.
Napoleon Hill also wrote something profound about adversity:
“Every adversity carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit and you will find it with a positive mental attitude.”
This has proven true in my life many times and it is very important to remember when you are going through hard times.
I would put a copy by your computer, in your home, at work, and in your car, to remind you every day.
The Mastermind Alliance is the joining of two or more positive minded people working together for the creation of the group’s goals. Their individual minds blend into a Master Mind each member can tap into for inspiration and guidance. Many fortunes have been made using this.
Currently my Mastermind Alliance is with Heaven. Maybe one day I will find another.
