Paul Rushin was one of the speakers for Napoleon Hill Day at the University of Virginia (UVA) Wise Campus on Monday, November 27th, 2014.
I interviewed Paul for my Journey To Success Radio show.

Paul Rushin was born December 25, 1958, in Jacksonville, Florida. He graduated Englewood High School in 1976, and enlisted in the Air Force 1978.
During his 28 years of military service, he’s led several thousand military and civilian personnel in the accomplishment of their Air Force mission, and their own personal goals.
He is highly trained, and experienced in Leadership, Mentorship, and government resource management. Chief Rushin has won many awards and decorations to include six Meritorious Service medals.
Paul has an Associates Degree in Ecological Controls and is a certified Leader in the PMA: Science of Success by the Napoleon Hill Foundation World Learning Center, Purdue University Calumet.
Paul Rushin is the author of a children’s book titled No More Bullies! (The Real Super-mind.) He wants to help make the world a better place in which to live.
No one should have to face a bully alone. This story is partly true and partly make-believe. Andy, the main character in the story, is based on a real person (Andrew Carnegie).
In this book we reveal a very powerful principle Andy learned and used to become one of the world’s richest, most powerful men. When you read this story, you too can discover the important principle for yourself, and one day, you also may become powerful!
Even if you have never encountered a bully, you will find it to be very valuable advice. This knowledge also will help you handle many other adversities in life.
This book was inspired by the teachings of Dr. Napoleon Hill, and Dr. Hill was inspired to research and write his philosophy of success by the hero of our story.
Taking the Napoleon Hill Leader Certification course was THE KEY TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE!
By taking the course I discovered the true God given Definite Purpose for my life. By being able to identify it so clearly and knowing that God himself would tell me this is why I am on this earth, I can focus my conscious mind and, even more important, my subconscious mind, with laser like precision.
Once your subconscious becomes saturated with your Purpose, it seeks out people and opportunities best suited to you. One of my affirmations is:
My Positive Mental Attitude attracts the people and opportunities best suited to me
I repeat that regularly when my brain is focused on something negative or is in idle.
First, you should take it for the person it will make you become and the credibility you will have with others. To be a Napoleon Hill Certified Leader requires that you model and use the 17 Principles of Success in your own life. That alone will make you a better person with a well thought out, clear, written Definite Purpose and a clear plan for how to achieve your Definite Chief Aim in life.
Secondly, you should take the course for the people you can influence with it. If you are a parent, you can model and teach the Success Principles with your kids.
If you are involved in helping other people in any way, these principles can assist you when you mentor or coach others.
Thirdly, take it for the amazing people you will meet. That is the part I love the most. Imagine spending a week with people who love Napoleon Hill and who attribute his book Think and Grow Rich with their success. You will not want to go back to the real world after spending a week with fellow Napoleon Hill followers.
Fourth, take it for the incredible travel experience it is. I have attended 3 trips and all were incredible travel experiences.
