MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“No man is so foolish but he may sometimes give another good counsel, and no man is so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other counsel than his own.  He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.”  -Hunter S. Thompson

SELF TAUGHT HELICOPTER PILOT CRASH  *******I’m still shaking my head at this one.  Really?!  This guy lost his mind as well as his money.  Don’t be a Bob!!!  LOL  Seriously, pride has been the downfall of many.  I didn’t really realize how much my pride was holding me back until I started reading The Law of Success by Napoleon Hill http://www.amazon.com/Success-Sixteen-Napoleon-Complete-Unabridged/dp/9562915921/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223671170&sr=1-1.  This book shows how the richest men gained their wealth by creating a “mastermind”.  In order to achieve success, one must form an alliance with a person of like mind.  This does not mean you have to be in business together, but you must be on the same wavelength when discussing your plans and ideas for your business.  You can’t do it alone.  It doesn’t matter who you are or what talents you’ve been blessed with.  Don’t believe me?  Name one person that has achieved greatness without the help of another.  Remember–you are taught by influence also.*******
