Everyone Wants To Gain, To Be, To Do, And To Save. You, Your Family Members, Your Friends, Your Customers -- Everyone.
We Want To Gain: Health, Time, Money, Popularity, Security, Praise, Comfort, Leisure, And Personal Prestige.
We Want To Be: Good Parents, Sociable And Hospitable, Up-To-Date, Creative, Influential, Efficient, Effective, “First” In As Many Things As Possible And Regarded As Authorities.
We Want To Do: Express Your Personality, Resist Domination And Addiction, Satisfy Your Curiosity, Acquire Or Collect Things, And Win The Affection Of Others.
We Want To Save: Time, Money, Effort, Discomfort, Worry, Risk, And Embarrassment.
What Do You Want?
Your Greatest Potential - Pushing Upon Your Limitations Is What Makes Your Life Become Larger
Are You All That You Can Be In Your Life, Or Is There Still Room For Growth, Improvement And Greater Achievements? How Do You Know Your True Range In Life Unless You Keep Reaching, Stretching, Learning, Growing And Pushing Beyond Your Limitations? Pushing Beyond Your Limitations -- Trying To Achieve More Difficult And More Meaningful Goals - Is What Makes Your Life Become Larger.
Every Person Is Really - Two People; The Person We Are Today And That More Dynamic, More Developed, More Organized And Focused And More Successful And Happier Person We Could Still Become – Tomorrow.
The Greatest Tragedy In Life Is That Millions Of People Come Into This World And Leave This World And Never Ever Realize Or Develop Their Full Powers And Potential. They Bargained In Life For A Penny And Life Would Pay No More, Not Realizing That Any Wage They Would Have Asked Of Life – Life Would Have Gladly Paid. Some Of Those People Never Even Tried, They Just Settled For Mediocrity. Others, Had A Dream, An Idea, A Desire Or Goal And Decided To Go For It, But Then Dropped Out When The Going Got Tough. There Are Many Starters In Life, But Very Few Finish. Too Many People Give Up On Their Dreams Too Soon In Life.
No Matter What The Level Of Our Ability, We Have More Potential Than We Can Ever Develop In A Lifetime. Deep Within Every Man And Woman Dwells Those Slumbering Powers; Powers That Would Astonish Them, Which They Never Dreamed Of Possessing; Forces That Would Revolutionize Their Life If Aroused And Put Into Action.
Potential Means: Unlimited - Undeveloped And – Unrealized Powers, Possibilities, And Capabilities -- That Can – But Have Not Yet Come Into Being. In Other Words, The Best Is Yet To Come!
You Have Powers And Talent You Haven’t Developed Or Used Yet. You Also Have Dreams And Fantasies You Haven’t Realized Yet. ---- Maybe You Will Some Day -- Maybe You Never Will -- Maybe You Have Given Up On Them
It’s Up To You! ---- If You Still Want To Achieve Them, -- Then You Have To Keep On Keeping On.
Your Unlimited Possibilities Are Still Alive, Just Waiting For You To Give Them Power.
There Are No Limits To Our Possibilities. At Any Moment, We Have More Possibilities That We Can Ever Act Upon.
There’s Far More Opportunity Than There Is Ability.
We Can Do Things We Never Thought We Could Do. There Are No Limitations To What We Can Do -- Except The Limitations Of Our Own Mind. Our Thoughts And Our Imaginations Are The Only Real Limits To Our Possibilities.
We Know What We Are, But We Know Not What We May Be.
First, We Have To Understand The Potential That We Have, Second, We Have To Learn How To Develop And Harness These Powers; Third, We Must Then Continuously Use These Powers At All Times. Just Like A Muscle – We Either Use It Or We Lose It. Self-Improvement – Means: Improving Of Our Condition, Mind And Abilities – Through Our Own Efforts. To Become Better Than We Already Are.
It’s Even Possible For You To Do Something In The Next Couple Of Years That Could Make You Rich And Famous. There’s Nothing You Can’t Do, Or Learn How To Do. You Didn’t Know How To Walk Or Talk When You Came Into This World, But You Eventually Learned How. With Time, Practice And Proper Instructions, You Could Learn Anything. There’s Nothing More Pitiful Or Ludicrous Than A Person Who Thinks That He Or She Already Knows Enough.
Maximizing Your Potential To The Fullest - To Be All That You Can Be - Will Guarantee You Greater Happiness, Freedom, Security And Peace Of Mind In Your Life. It Will Also Keep You Young And Filled With Vitality.
We Are Happy When We Are Using Our Potential – Striving Against Difficulties And Overcoming Them Reaching For Achievement And Finding It - This Is Happiness. True Happiness Involves The Full Use Of Our Powers And Talents.
Here’s An Example Of Our Untapped Powers; Scientists Say That The Average Human Being Has Enough Energy Within Them To Power A Highly Industrialized City For Over A Week. Keep That In Mind Next Time You Say You Are Tired.
“All Things Are Possible To Those Who Believe.” The Sad Truth Is That Only A Small Percentage Of People Believe That. They Think That Others Can Do What They Set Out To Do, But They Don’t Believe That They Too Have The Same Chance.
It’s A Matter Of Building Your Belief System.
Napoleon Hill Said, “Whatever The Mind Can Conceive And Believe It Can Achieve.” That Means - If You Get An Idea, Or Want Something Bad Enough And Have A Dream In Your Heart, You Must Work On Believing. Believing That It’s Ok To Want It, Believing That It Can Be Accomplished, And Believing That If You Want It Bad Enough That You Can Somehow Find The Way To Get It Or Do It. Seek And You Shall Find.
Every Day, Learning More, Doing More, Knowing More, Being More, Having More, And Developing More. There Will Always Be More To Develop. The Potential Is Endless.
“To Be What We Are, And To Become What We Are Capable Of Becoming, Is The Only End In Life.” -- Robert Louis Stevenson
“The Successful Man And Woman Is Prosperous, Because They Have Developed Ninety-Five Percent Of Their Ability. The Failures Are Poor, Because Only Five Percent Of Their Natural Talents Have Been Utilized.” -- Charles & Popplestone
“Man Is The Favorite Of Nature, Not In The Sense That Nature Has Done Everything For Him, But That She Has Given Him The Power Of Doing Everything For Himself.” -- Zacharias
What Exactly Is Success? Ask The Average Person That Question And You Will Get Many Answers. Success Means Many Wonderful And Positive Things: Great Health, Financial Security, Owning Your Own Home, Having Your Own Business, Vacations, Travel, New Things, Giving Your Children Maximum Advantages. Success Means Winning Admiration, Leadership, Being Looked Up To By People In Your Business And Social Life. Success Means Freedom; Freedom From Worries, Fears, Frustrations And Failure. Success Means Self-Respect, Continually Finding More Real Happiness And Satisfaction From Life And Being Able To Do More For Those Who Depend On You.
Here Is The Best Answer To That Question That I Have Ever Heard.
“Success -- Is The Development Of Your Powers To Get Whatever It Is That You Want From Life Without Violating The Rights Of Others In Any Way.” … Napoleon Hill

Rick’s talks, workshops, courses, articles, and books stimulate positive action in people who are ready to turn their dreams into realities. He brings forth the needed motivation, ideas, plans and success formula that have been responsible for a vast number of individuals defining and achieving their goals.
Rick spent three years in the Army Air Corp and another three years in the United States Merchant Marines and then from 1954 until 1960 he spent his time in professional selling, sales training and sales management.
From 1961 until 1970, he was in advertising, promotion and marketing.
In 1970, Rick represented Nightingale/Conant Corp (Earl Nightingale’s Company. Earl was heard daily on over 1,000 Radio Stations), The Napoleon Hill Academy and Success Unlimited magazine. He created, marketed and conducted Success Achievement workshops and courses.
In 1980, he started expanding his Master Mind Alliance Success Clubs International throughout the world.
In 2000, he retired to write motivational articles, books, screenplays, songs, and children’s books.
At the beginning of 2003, he decided to go back into the motivation business and put it all on the Internet.
In 1954, I started reading all of Napoleon Hill’s books and since then read each one over thirty-five times (I stopped counting): Law of Success, Think and Grow Rich, The Master Key to Riches, Grow Rich With Peace of Mind, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, You Can Work Your Own Miracles and Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion.
In 1970, I bought a distributorship to market Napoleon Hill’s “Philosophy of Success” program and started teaching his Success Course. I created The Master Mind Alliance Success Club to help my students follow through and put the principles into practice. In addition to teaching the course in hotels, meeting rooms and in-house in many large and small corporations, I also taught the course in San Quentin Prison and at the Delancy Street Foundation for ex-cons, pimps, prostitutes, drug and alcohol addicts.
In 1974, I received a phone call from a Mr. John Haid who was the president of the Napoleon Hill Academy. He said that he heard quite a bit about my classes and me and that he wanted to fly out to San Francisco to meet with me. When we got together, he told me he was going to set up a Napoleon Hill Academy Franchise in Northern California and wanted to find the most qualified person to run it. He was here for about a week and interviewed several eager people who wanted that privilege. Many of them were very successful and had lots of money to gladly pay for the franchise. After several meetings with each one of us, John decided that I was the most knowledgeable on Napoleon Hill’s Success principles and gave the franchise to me. I am still sharing these principles in my Science of Success Achievement Course that my students are studying today.
