Book How To Be A Good Dad

napoleon hill says you can “think and growrich.” but if you’ve been brought up like most people with “work and you won’t starve,”this will make you uncomfortable. you might think, “that’s just stupid! it can’tbe that easy!” and even though the only way you’ll ever be rich is by thinking,it’s the hardest work there is. let’s take a look at my videos. everythingi do can be outsourced. i can pay a dollar to a guy across the world to animate my video.i can pay a few dollars for a ten times more pleasing voice-over. i could even outsourcelittle things like uploading my videos for a few cents to people who will gladly do it.the only thing i cannot outsource is my thoughts. i cannot outsource my mindset for what needsto be animated and what needs to be said.

again, if i were to outsource it, the animationcan be valued at a single dollar, a voice-over can be valued at a few dollars, all the littlelogistics can be valued at a few cents, but the value my thoughts can generate is literallyonly limited by my imagination. there are millions of people around the worldwho work 12-hour-days at horrible jobs and make less money than if i were to sit back,do nothing, and let my tiny youtube channel i created a couple of months ago make moneyon its own, and all because i was willing to think. there’s no way you can read andget paid for it, right? right. if you look for a job that will pay you for reading yourfavorite books, you probably won’t find one. if you think however, turns out the amountof opportunities is only limited by your imagination.

again, the only advantage i have over theguy willing to animate my video for a dollar is my thoughts. it’s kind of crazy whenyou think about it that way. if he knew what to animate instead of how to animate, he wouldn’tbe making a dollar for every hundred dollars he makes for someone else.however, thinking has no value to most people. in fact, it’s associated with laziness.when i graduated, every time i talked to my mom, she would ask me, “have you startedworking at a good job?” and i would say, “no, i’m actually thinking about whati’m going to do.” and she would say, “okay, but you need to work.” and the reason sheis acting that way is because next time she sees her friends, she wants to say, “myson works at a bank,” not “my son has

been thinking a lot.” the latter has novalue to her friends. but let’s not ask my mom’s friends about growing rich; let’sask a man who personified growing rich. henry ford said, “thinking is the hardestwork there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” if you think fordis just being poetic, let me give you a little challenge. next time you have a day off fromyour 9 to 5, spend the 8 hours thinking in your room instead. no phone, no facebook,no bullshit. just sit in your room quietly and think. in about 5 minutes, most peoplewill start wishing they were back at their 9 to 5.
