It's obvious that Robbins has gotten a lot of his ideas and thoughts from Napoleon Hill. He even mentioned Hill on Larry King one week. I admire Hill more because of who he studied and the conditions he was under. Keep in mind that Hill worked before the Industrial Revoltion, which made travel and communication much more difficult than today. Yet, he studied men who flourished during those times and he himself flourished. Hill studied Thomas Edison who had so much drive and desire in his life that he worked 20 hours a day for decades at a time. He patented an average of one invention per day for 30 years. I don't care what people say about Edison, he was brilliant.
