“The Eighth Step toward Riches”
“PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL.”
“Will-power and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair. Men who accumulate great fortunes are generally known as cold-blooded, and sometimes ruthless. Often they are misunderstood. What they have is willpower, which they mix with persistence, and place back of their desires to insure the attainment of their objectives.”
I am amazed at the thoroughness and the length of in-depthness that Napolian Hill went in studying the Lives of all these Successful People. The reader in Audio Lesson grossly mispronounces Prophet's Muhammad's Wife's name, I believe mainly because of the translation of the source he had at his availability, but her name was Khadijah, may Allah be pleased with her and she passed away in the 10th year of his Prophethood while Prophet Muhammad, may the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him, and his Companions were banished into the Desert for two years, no one were allowed to trade with them, nor marry anyone of them, nor bring them food. Some relatives sneaked food out of mercy to them every now and then. Also his Uncle Abu Mu-Talib, who raised him and protected him from being killed by the other Tribes of Mecca passed away that same year also.
I personally in the 1970's, was on my way to becoming a racist from what I was seeing and experiencing as a young non-white male until someone gave me a copy of "the Autobiography of Malcolm X", by Alex Hayley, that book got me interested in studying Islam so I went to the Library and found a English meaning of the Qur'an the translation wasn't that good but it gave me a general understanding of the Words of Allah, or as Napolian Hill calls Him, the Infinite Intelligence, but Who's known by billions in the World as Allah. I developed a desire of wanting understand that Qur'an in the Language it was revealed 1551 years ago to the Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad, may the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him, who could not read nor write and was known by his Tribesmen as, Al-Amin, the Trustworthy. He left two Sources revealed to him, that spark the Renaissance, the Qur'an, which is the Speech of Allah and the Sunnah, when is the words, actions, and approval of Prophet Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, who didn't speak of his on accord except what was revealed to him from the Infinite Intelligence by the medium of the Angel Gabriel. Before Prophet Muhammad there were many Prophets and Messengers every Nation received a Prophet and or Messenger some are known and some not known. Some were denied and some were killed and they all brought the Same Message, even though they had different Laws and different Languages,
لا إله إلّا ألله
La ilaha illa Allah, which means, None has the right to be worship in truth except Allah.
I like to thank Linda and Michael Dlouhy, and all of the mastermind partners for
