I recently started reading a new book called Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success. An interesting thing about the book is that it was written in 1938 by one of the world’s most influential minds on personal achievement. That is Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich fame. The book was never published because it was considered too controversial by his family and advisors. It was finally published by Sharon Lechter, a Rich Dad Advisor, at the request of the Napoleon Hill Foundation as very fitting for the times.

I wanted to further that discussion a little because that might lead you to believe that your dreams never change and that if you had dreams as a child (or any earlier stage in your life) is doesn’t mean that you still need to maintain those same dreams today.
