Napoleon's Greatest Speech
  by: Neil Eskelin, Daily Jump Start

"Why are some days great and others terrible? Is it because of chance or luck?" -- Danielle F.

Good days can actually be created.

In my book, "Yes Yes Living In A No No World," I tell about attending an awards banquet of the Chase National Life Insurance Company. The speaker was the famed author of Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill.

When Hill was introduced it was obvious his age had caught up with him. We all wondered if the octogenarian would be physically be able to give the speech. (He passed away not long after this event).

Napoleon Hill slowly walked to the podium, placed both of his hands on the sides of it, looked out at the audience and announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, I have given this speech hundreds and hundreds of times in my life. But tonight am going to deliver it the best it has ever been given. This is going to be the best speech of my life!"

Wow! It was like a bolt of lightning. I watched 300 adults move to the edge of their chairs and absorb every word like a sponge.

He set a course of action that did not allow for failure. You can do it too!
