Napoleon Hill’s Carnegie Secret Revealed!

Napoleon Hill's Carnegie Secret

People are searching for the Carnegie Secret so intensely that they're willing to pay good money for it.  But, before they do... they should know something about the secret:  it cannot be purchased for money... and, anyone who tries to sell it for a monetary price is a fraud.  Let me explain.  If Napoleon Hill wanted you to know what the secret was, don't you think he would have told you in Think & Grow Rich?  If he wanted to make money off of the secret don't you think he would have done so in his lifetime?  Or, perhaps his foundation might have done so in the years after his death?

I thought so.

Will the Purell Hand Sanitizer Market Ever Be the Same After the Coronavirus Disease of 2019-2020?

Coronavirus Disease 2019-2020 Purell Hand Sanitizer

By now you know that Purell hand sanitizer has become as good as gold.  Liquid Gold, that is... but no longer Texas Tea.  This time it's of the 70% ethyl variety and an insane "black" market has sprung up to capitalize on the opportunity to make some money.  What has now become so prolific that online retailers such as Amazon and eBay have prohibited KN-95 masks, hand sanitizer, and hand sanitizing wipes listings, here we examine how this market formed.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease has spread globally since 2019, resulting in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. Common symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. Muscle pain, sputum production and sore throat are some of the less common symptoms. While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some progress to pneumonia and multi-organ failure. The case fatality rate is estimated at between 1% and 5% but varies by age and other health conditions.

Now, back to the original article...

A while back, YouTuber John Mollusk posted a “death metal” version of Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg’s passionate UN speech. Now, with the clip approaching 4 million views, record label Despotz Records has turned the track into a charity single.

Mollusk, also known as John Meredith, dubbed his vocals over Greta Thunberg’s speech, giving it an extreme-metal makeover, and earning the attention of Thunberg herself. The 16-year-old climate crusader shared the video on Twitter, writing, “From now on I’ll be doing death metal only.”

The song went viral!  And, if you haven't heard the sound clip of her saying, "How dare you!" just know now that it's epic.  Here it is...

South Park: Eric Cartman as Hitler Speaking German is Now a FREE Ringtone for iPhone/Android!

"The Passion of the Jew" is the third episode of the eighth season and the 114th overall episode of the American animated series South Park, originally broadcast on Comedy Central on March 31, 2004. It was written and directed by Trey Parker, who, along with fellow series co-creator Matt Stone, voiced most of the characters in the episode. "The Passion of the Jew" is a satirical critique of the media discourse and controversy surrounding Mel Gibson's 2004 film, The Passion of the Christ.

In the episode, Kyle finally sees the blockbuster movie The Passion of the Christ and admits that Cartman has been right about the Jewish people all along. After Stan and Kenny see and hate the film, they angrily pursue Mel Gibson to get their money back.  Meanwhile Cartman dresses in a brown Hitler-esque uniform and hosts a fan club meeting in his backyard.  But, just beforehand, he gives himself a pep-talk in German while looking into his bedroom mirror.  Here is a clip of what he says:

The Joker's Laugh

By now we've all seen the trailer for the new Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix and heard the clip of his maniacal laughter.  Rumors have it that Joaquin studied people diagnosed with pathological laughter, or PBA, pseudobulbar affect.  It's also been documented that he wouldn't have accepted the role as Joker unless he could find the perfect laugh for his rendition of the character.  Here's a clip of the laugh below:

The Single-Best Bit of Self-Improvement Advice I Can Give…

The Willpower Equation

I get asked a lot of questions on Twitter (@jdbloodstone), but I received one the other day that really stopped me in my tracks.  Normally, I get questions that can be answered quickly without much thought, but this one made me reflect on my past and the path I took to get to where I am today.  The question was simple... too simple, perhaps.  The questions was this:

The Circle is Complete – Two New Books by J.D. Bloodstone Now Available!

Awaken the Balls Within

I had always planned on writing a follow-up to Think & Grow Balls!, but I didn't know that it would be six years before I wrote it.  To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure when I was going to write it... I just knew that there was more to say on the topic... much more.  But, as with a lot of people, the last six years have been rough and I was too busy "righting the ship" to collect my thoughts long enough to sit down and compose a book.  The positive side of this experience has been twofold.  First, I was able to test out a lot of my own theory to prove to myself, once again, that my philosophy works, and with it, I was able to accomplish what I set out to do while facing several significant obstacles.  Second, I was able to come up with enough new information that what was supposed to become one book became two.  Napoleon Hill once said that with all temporary failure comes the seed of success.  It's amazing how right he was...
