Here is a summary of this Napoleon Hill Quotes video and a comment.

Hill relates how he got his first job. He wanted to work for an employer with whom he would gain valuable experience.

Hill wrote a letter to his perspective employer, General Rufus A. Ayers, offering to pay his prospective employer a salary for the first three months.

His employer asked him if he wrote the letter himself. Hill said he did.

He got the job at $50/month.

As a young reporter, Hill got the opportunity to interview Andrew Carnegie.

Here is the most important point:

Hill wrote a letter to his perspective employer, General Rufus A. Ayers, offering to pay his prospective employer a salary for the first three months.

This anecdote of Hill’s life indicates that he had confidence, initiative, and the determination to make something of himself. Does it become clear what Andrew Carnegie saw in the young reporter during that fateful first meeting?

And here is one more thing.

Napoleon Hill likely had a history of taking matters into his own hands and determining his own fate. Although I don’t know this for a fact, I’m guessing that the experience with General Ayers resonated when Andrew Carnegie offered him the commission that changed his life.

Quite likely, his experience with General Ayers became a reference experience with which the young man bolstered his self-image. Was this one of the impulses that prompted him to say “Yes!” when Carnegie offered him the opportunity to research and teach a philosophy of success to the world?

Perhaps. Most likely, we will never know for sure.

However, this certainly seems possible.
