Thoughts on: ”Outwitting the Devil” by Napoleon Hill

In an interview with the Devil himself, Napoleon Hill finds out how he keeps us from living extraordinarily lives and what it is that cause us to “drift”. 2 out of 100 are “non-drifters” and live lives of definiteness of purpose. These are the thinking men/women and the builders of the modern world.

The book was released in 2011 even though it was written in 1938, but was said to be too controversial to be published during that time.

It is a personal development gem. Even though many concepts are well known and have been written about elsewhere, there is a certain clarity to way the ideas are presented that really makes me think reevaluate my attitude towards life. One of many takeaways from this book, for me, will be to work on eliminating my fear of criticism, which is one of many obstacles for becoming a “non-drifter”.
