Capitalism is one of the foundational elements that makes America great. The “American Dream” is not based on a socialist “see how much we can get without working” philosophy. The American Dream is based on the fact that through capitalism America is the land of opportunity. America is the land among all lands where a great idea combined with hard work can elevate any man or woman from the lowest economic levels to the highest.
Napoleon Hill wrote Think and Grow Rich in 1937, after spending 20 years studying, interviewing, and analyzing the most successful capitalists of his time. Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, and Henry Ford are just three of the many immensely successful business people Hill interviewed before writing his instruction manual for success.
Some folks who do not understand capitalism would have you believe capitalists are cold-blooded, unfeeling beings whose only God is the “Almighty Dollar.” Those folks might wish to read Hill’s writings and may be shocked to find his guidance includes instructions to (1) turn to a higher power (some call this power God), (2) grow in faith, and (3) pray every day. In a radio broadcast in 1952, Hill said:
“You must believe in prayer. If you will take your prayers and place them definitely behind your major objective in life and enter into those prayers each day with the belief that they will be fulfilled, you will find that changes will take place in your attitude. Those changes will attract to you the necessary things and circumstances to carry out the object of those prayers.”
Whatever your major objective in life, daily prayer must be seen as a critical element on your road to success.
Please allow us to serve you and those you love.
P.S. God wants nothing less than a rich and abundant life for you. Take the time to get really clear on what a rich and abundant life would look like for you. Have faith in God and pray every day for his guidance on your journey.
