If you’ve ever wanted your wealthiest, happiest, and most abundant life ever, then do we have the Secrets of Self-Mastery show for you.


Today I’ll be talking with Mitch Horowitz, a leader in the new thought movement, PEN Award-Winning historian, author of “The Miracle Club”, and the Napoleon Hill Success Course series which includes “The Miracle of a Definite Chief Aim”, “One Simple Idea”, and the latest, “Secrets of Self-Mastery”


That is just what I want to talk with him about today, about Napoleon Hills’ top ten rules for self-mastery and success. Plus we’ll talk about the miracle man of France, the importance of war in the world, the psychology of clothing, and what in the world bad brains and PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) have to do with anything.
