Do not wait...

Do not wait; the time will never be just right. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. ~ Napoleon Hill

I enjoyed visiting your "peaceful" blog today, and I thought you just might be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill's classic book "Think and Grow Rich" has been published.

Its title is "Think and Grow Rich!" (subtitled) "The Original Version, Restored and Revised." I am the editor/annotator of this new 412-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of "Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.")

What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill's book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain "impediments" to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.

If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to will give you some details. The "Editor's Foreword" provides more complete information, and the “Testimonials” page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world. Here is the book’s page:

The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers, it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will start appearing in bookstores soon.

Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is 412 pages versus 230+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the "version of choice" among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Ross Cornwell, Editor

Hi Mr. Cornwell - Thank you for your kind words. :)

I went right over to Amazon after reading your comments, reviewed the book and ordered it on the spot. I look forward to reading it and probably should pay special attention to chapter 7. (If I remember correctly, it was on procrastination) I have been at an impasse in my life for awhile due to some health issues which I am expecting to be resolved one way or the other shortly and I look forward to the new insights I will gain with this book.

I will be striking out into the work force again and am believing for the perfect job and by that I mean a job where I will thrive and be a blessing to the corporation and where there will be mutual satisfaction in a job well done. Beyond that? Who knows? Life is full of wonderful possibilities. :)

Thank you for taking the time to inform me of this book. I just picked a random quote and was not familiar with the author of this quote and now...I soon shall be.

Ahhh..the wonders of the internet.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

I am glad you will be reading and studying TGR. It can be a life-altering experience for you of the most profound kind. This wonderful book for seventy years has changed more people's lives than any book except the Bible. All that is required is serious reading and study, and the most important thing is diligent and persistent application of the principles the book explains. I know that you will overcome your health issues, have a successful rentry into the work world, and will carve out a great success for yourself in life.

Mr. Cornwell - I must admit that my curiosity is peaked and I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of this book.

"I know that you will overcome your health issues, have a successful rentry into the work world, and will carve out a great success for yourself in life."

I am embracing your positive thoughts and do thank you for your well wishes. :)

Excellent quote. Thank you for today's inspiration.

Your welcome I.U. :)

You know that I find your posts to be inspirational - hearing about your office and other work experiences as a physician and I do share in your enthusiasm. Your blogs and some other medical blogs help me to still feel connected to the medical profession, even if only at a distance.

Some days I can't wait to get back to work and am anxious to see what my new job or jobs will be. Then on other days I feel so shy and a bit intimidated about going back to work because as of May16th I will have been off from work one year. I know its just a matter of getting back in the saddle again (which would only be a day or 2) and then I'd be back in the swing of things.

Anyway, reading about your office set-up and sharing ideas, etc. keeps everything fresh AND I am learning new things and gaining insights on what it is like to work in a doctor's office. :)

I also have a couple of hospitals that I am thinking of working in and that is also a good connection for meeting doctors and possibly opening doors that way. Never discount anything-we never know what doors will open from just one connection. :)
