The desire to keep knowledge from circulating is the essence of any secret. In the case of the secret of success, entrepreneurs and forward thinkers have come around to recognizing that success is NOT to be kept a secret, but rather, shared for the good of the community, the world, and themselves. We recall the famous words of Napoleon Hill:
It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.
Therefore, among the secrets to success, mentoring those who wish to learn more about the process is paramount. Other vital factors in success include the need for specific knowledge, saving time by avoiding mistakes, having the passion needed, as well as the will to pursue your dreams and to take action to achieve this success. Dreams without action were once called “pipe dreams” – just smoke screens where nothing tangible was ever accomplished.
While we need to beware of charlatans and cheats, more and more of us wish to succeed personally and help others along the way do the same. The electronic age has ably assisted this cause. Our CelebrityExperts in this book can now share The BIG Secret with their clients and, in fact, all around the world, showing and helping those who desire to accomplish great deeds and influence the world positively, how to go about this task.
One of the finest reminders we have had on the secret of success is from Thomas Edison:
I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
