Based on a series of booklets written by bestselling motivational writer Napoleon Hill, Andrew Carnegie’s Gift outlines the importance of three essential principles of success: self-discipline, learning from defeat, and the Golden Rule. In 1908, Napoleon Hill met industrialist Andrew Carnegie for what he believed would be a short interview for an article. Instead, Carnegie spent hours detailing his principles of success to the young magazine reporter–and challenged Hill to devote 20 years to expanding that philosophy. Hill accepted the challenge, which resulted in his bestselling book, Think and Grow Rich, as well as a series of pamphlets he called Mental Dynamite. Now, the Napoleon Hill Foundation has retrieved those long-forgotten booklets and selected three major principles for elaboration: Self-Discipline, which includes a 13-point psychological formula to use as a daily mantra and to overcome past difficulties, both personal and professional; Learning from Defeat, which helps you find happiness with others, become self-determining, and turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones; and the Golden Rule, for developing a strong character and leading a selfless life. Each chapter draws upon Carnegie’s words and advice as inspiration, with annotations by author James Whittaker explaining why they are essential–not just helpful–for reaching your goals and prospering.
