Thinking Yourself Into Exponential Success: Turning Setbacks and Failures into Wins

By Amira Alvarez

This special episode is part of the Morning Mindset Club Series, in which we invite you to join me in my morning ritual that I use to set my day up for success. We’re kicking this series off by taking you into one of my favorite texts, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Today, we’ll be diving back into the story of Edwin C. Barnes, the man who thought himself into partnership with the great Thomas Edison. We’re also going to look at another interesting story, which is behind the common phrase “three feet from gold,” and talking about what we can learn from this tale of missed opportunity.

If you would like to join the Morning Mindset Club, and get a short audio lesson, a mastery check-in, and a quick daily implementation practice, please go to https://theunstoppablewoman.com/mindsetclub/. There is no monetary charge to join. There is, however, a cost. ;-) You must have the DESIRE to grow and become more, you must love to learn, have an open mind, give it your attention, and commit. Ready??? Let’s go!
