Dave Liniger is the Co-Founder of Re/Max and a huge fan of Napoleon Hill's book Think and Grow Rich.
I shared the stage with Dave at the Think and Grow Rich Summit in Del Mar, CA at the end of April 2013.
Dave is making a miraculous and EXTREMELY determined recovery from a staph infection that nearly killed him and which should have left him paralyzed.
He spoke after me at the Think and Grow Rich Summit and made reference to my talk a few times during his. Like me, he has learned to let other people help him when he needs it, and it has been a VERY difficult lesson for him to learn. Like me, he needs a device to help him put on socks, at least for the moment.
I purchased and read Dave's book about his illness and recovery, My Next Step. I admire how tough and stubborn he is because I am like that also.
Here is what Dave Liniger wrote about Think and Grow Rich in his book:
"As I lay in bed, I likened my recovery to two of the greatest lessons I learned very early in life after reading the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I was an impressionable sixteen year-old kid who didn't want to spend the rest of his life milking cows on our farm in Indiana. That book, which I have read more than forty times, has been a tremendous inspiration and influence in everything I have accomplished in business and in life. If you haven't read it, I strongly encourage you to. And if you have, go back and read it again, because its lessons have held up over time and are as relevant today as they were when the book was first published in 1937. Fifty years after reading that book, forty years of having actively exercised its principles, and thirty years of teaching from it brought me to two very simple lessons that have ruled my world. The first lesson is simple: Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. The second lesson is to write down any goals that is worth achieving, make it an obsession and convince your brain that can accomplish it. be sure that the goal is realistic, then decide what your step-by-step plan will be to achieve it.
The lessons are really about being persistent, setting realistic goals and finding the right people to encourage you to attain them. As you start working toward your goal, you may have to stop, recalibrate, make adjustments and then get back to working toward that goal. But NEVER, ever give up until you reach it."
Please purchase Dave Liniger's book. The profits all go to charity. I was deeply touched while reading it.
