In this episode of Right Your Own Story I give a book review on the classic ‘Outwitting The Devil’, by Napoleon Hill.
We have all had hopes, dreams, wishes and aspirations as children, but as we get older we perhaps lost our way with these, maybe even talked ourselves out of them as ‘just fantasies’, or even let the idea or wish go completely.
These can things be things like something we wanted to do or achieve as we got older, perhaps a career we would have liked, or maybe something else that we wanted to be, do, or have in our lives.
The sad fact is less than 5% of people go on to actually achieve their goals, their dreams or their desires.
In the book, Hill is having a dialogue with the Devil. He is specifically asking if the Devil has any part to play in this.
The Devils answer is chillingly clear – YES. ALWAYS, AND EVERY SINGLE TIME TOO!
Hill presses him to reveal (in detail) how, why, and more importantly, how to escape this trap.
As per the deal, the Devil reluctantly reveals his deepest darkest methods.
It is a truly fascinating read.
After writing the book, Hill had a genuine fear about releasing it, how it would be received, and its repercussions too, so he asked his wife to release it after his death. She agreed, but then she also had the same fear, so asked Hill’s son to release it after her own death.
The son agreed, and kept his promise.
So, seventy long years after it was written, It was finally published.
It was then immediately banned!
This made it incredibly popular, and later still when the ban was lifted, it became an international best seller.
It is packed with ‘life lessons’ that are as relevant today as when it was written, and I would highly recommend you add it to your library.
