Teach yourself, To Then Teach Your Kids

I am re-reading a wonderful book for probably the third time called
Outwitting The Devil  by Napoleon Hill, famous author of Think Grow Rich

It a book describing the experience Mr. Hill had explaining his contact with the devil. This book was originally written in 1938, but was not published until 2011

Whether you believe the content of the this interview styled book to be true or not.
You cannot deny the extreme truth soundness of the content.

I do want to quote a sections that explains things to better children to become achievers and not be swindling by the workings of the “Devil” which its just everything negative down to the negative particle of an atom so to speak.

-Teach the students how to budget and use time, and above all teach the truth that time is the greatest asset available to human beings and the cheapest.
-Teach children what to eat, how much to eat, and what is the relationship between proper eating and sound health.
-Teach children to be definite in all things, beginning with the choice of a definite major purpose in life!
– Teach children the nature and the value of self-control.
– Teach children not to have opinions unless they are formed from facts or beliefs which may reasonable be accepted as facts. Teach children that cigarettes, liquor, narcotics, and overindulgence in sex destroy the power of will and lead to the habit of drifting. Do not forbid these evils-just explain them.
– Teach children the danger of believing anything merely because their, parents, religious instructors, or someone else says it is so.
– Teach children to be true to themselves at all times and, since they cannot please everybody, therefore to do a good job of pleasing themselves.

This book has way more inquisitive meaning life learned lesson to take with you. I love this book, pretty much my bible!

I really recommend it!
