    Outwitting the Devil is a book that was written by Napoleon Hill and annotated by Sharon Lechter.
    It was originally written in 1938 by Hill, but was said to be too controversial to be published during that time period.

    It was released by Sterling Publishing in June, 2011.

    The book is an interview between Hill (Mr. Earthbound) and The Devil (Your Majesty).

    Hill uncovers the secrets to freedom and success by evaluating the greatest obstacles that humans face
    in order to attain their personal goals in life.

    During the book, (Mr. Earthbound) interrogates The Devil, Your Majesty, to find out how people limit their success and how The Devil achieves his manipulation.
    Some of the topics that are discussed are:
    • The difference between drifters and non-drifters
    • Maintaining a definiteness of purpose
    • Finding one’s other self
    • Hill’s seven principles
    • The law of hypnotic rhythm
    Just after the release of Think and Grow Rich in 1937, Hill began writing Outwitting the Devil as an explanation
    of why some were still seeing failure after following all of the steps in Think and Grow Rich.

    His wife, Annie Lou, did not want the book published because of the role the Devil played in it.

    When Hill died in 1970, the manuscript went in the possession of Annie Lou, who died in 1984.

    After her death, the manuscript went into the hands of Dr. Charles Johnson,
    who was Annie Lou’s nephew and president of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.

    While Dr. Johnson believed the book’s message to be powerful, his wife, Frankie Johnson, shared Annie Lou’s feelings
    and told Dr. Johnson that she did not want the manuscript published while she was alive.

    After Frankie’s death, Dr. Johnson passed the manuscript to Don Green, CEO of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.

    Sharon Lechter was then asked to edit the manuscript, and after several years of annotations and reviews,
    it was released in June, 2011.

    I’m guilty of beginning Outwitting The Devil without knowing much about the author, Napoleon Hill.

    In the first few pages, it was apparent that he’s some sort of “important” historical figure.

    As I paused my reading to Google him, I quickly learned that he has had a profound affect on the business
    of personal success writing.

    Okay, so he’s kind of a big deal. He’s the guy that said, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,”
    a quote that’s coincidentally a favorite of mine.

    Hill dedicated most of his life to interviewing business leaders and prominent thinkers of the day,
    seeking out the secrets to success. His twenty years of writing and interviewing people like Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller
    and Thomas Edison were a result of introductions by Andrew Carnegie, who inspired Hill to organize
    the philosophy of personal achievement through these interviews.

    Hill has penned many previous bestsellers, including the well-known Think and Grow Rich,
    which has sold millions of copies since its first publishing in 1937.

    What’s immediately interesting about Outwitting The Devil is that Hill wrote the book in 1938,
    but it went unpublished until 2011. Why the delay?
    Probably the groundbreaking content that, in the ’30s, would have seemed absurd
    (and may still seem that way today).

    Hill shares opinions on education, finance, health, alcohol, sex and drugs in this book
    – many of which are relevant and eerily accurate today, some 70 years later.
    BUY it here:

    The book is set up as a conversation between Hill and “the Devil,” as Hill explores how to overcome fear,
    obstacles and barriers – all “Devil-related,” according to Hill – on the road to personal achievement and success.

    The book-long conversation tackles various barriers every individual faces in forging their own path in life
    and discusses the role of the individual versus external forces that may overtake an individual’s ability
    to independently reach success.

    The conversation format initially took me by surprise, but Hill uses this cheeky framework to convey his argument
    and points through the analogy of the Devil very well.

    The material is relatable to anyone looking to reach beyond themselves for a life that is both fulfilling and rewarding,
    something to which all Millennials naturally aspire. And, surprisingly or not, the obstacles that Hill faced in the 1930s
    aren’t any different than the challenges that individuals, particularly Millennials, face today
    – where to live, what to do for a living and how to find overall happiness.

    What I enjoyed most about the book is Hill creates the analogy of the Devil to explain his ultimate message:
    Each individual is ultimately responsible for his or her own success. According to Hill,
    “Your only limitation is the one which you set up in your own mind.”

    It was lines like those that struck home for me. Again and again, the text points out that
    “The worst of all human ailments is indecision,” something that many readers will be able to personally relate to very well.

    Overall, it took me some time to warm up to this book, particularly to the religious undertones that are omnipresent
    throughout the text. However, I would encourage anyone who reads this book to make special note that Hill points out
    that the “Devil” controls negative thought and wants to germinate negative thoughts in every individual.

    Each and every reader must decide for themselves what roles the Devil – either external or internal
    – plays in his or her own life.

    Will you let negative thought and indecision get the better of you?

    This book makes every reader reevaluate their own choices, attitudes and decisions, and their outcomes,
    hopefully for sake of personal satisfaction, achievement and happiness.

    Think and Grow Rich for Women:

    Using Your Power to Create Success

    and Significance

    Paperback – June 16, 2015

    by Sharon Lechter (Author)

    Think and Grow Rich for Women: Using Your Power to Create Success and Significance

    Editorial Reviews

    From Booklist

    Lechter, coauthor of the best-selling Rich Dad, Poor Dad (2007), revisits Napoleon Hill’s 1937 self-help book from the perspective of modern women, who stand to inherit nearly $30 trillion in global wealth. Mindful that advice on wealth accumulation can be much the same for men and women, Lechter argues that the difference in women’s values calls for a different perspective. But she takes issue with the notion that women need to seek a balance between home life and career, instead counseling women to replace guilt with power to make choices to create “one big life filled with love, family, satisfaction, success, and significance.” She begins each chapter with a contemporary review of Hill’s book, then offers lessons on how women have applied his philosophy, drawing on interviews with successful women, from the founder of Mary Kay cosmetics to Condoleezza Rice to Sandra Day O’Connor. Following Hill’s example, she offers a sisterhood MasterMind compendium of inspirational quotes from women and ends each chapter with prompts for formulating an action plan to further career goals. --Vanessa Bush --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


    “Sharon Lechter has taken the best of Napoleon Hill to inspire women of all ages to Think and Grow Rich. Can you improve on a masterpiece? Yes, and this book is proof.”
    —Harvey Mackay, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

    “You have in your hands the book that can change your life and make it infinitely better NOW! Women are the best teachers and mentors of other women to be all you desire to be, do all you desire to do, and have all you want to have and inspire others to do the same or more. Drink deeply of this wisdom shared by some of the most brilliant women on the planet. Use the principle of sharing by giving this book to all the women that you love and care about.”
    —Mark Victor Hansen, Chicken Soup for the Soul and One Minute Millionaire

    “Sharon Lechter goes about her work with passion. Think and Grow Rich for Women is simply a book that needed to be written for today’s woman to help her grow and serve others.”
    —Don Green, CEO of the Napoleon Hill Foundation

    “For anyone with a daughter, niece, granddaughter, sister or friend who needs a primer on how to work hard, dream big and lead a life filled with adventure, possibility and financial responsibility, this is the book for you. I loved it.”
    —Adriana Trigiani

    "Ideal for anyone beginning a career or needing a jump start."
    —Library Journal

    “As a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and catalyst Sharon Lechter mixes wisdom from women through the ages with her own powerful experiences to map a road to success. Keys to success identified by Napoleon Hill over 75 years ago enjoy a make-over; this time for women!”
    — Barbara Barrett, Former United States Ambassador to Finland

    “This wonderful, uplifting and highly practical book gives you the most famous and successful formula for personal achievement ever discovered.”
    — Brian Tracy

    "The book’s focus on women and a plethora of inspirational quotes from successful women (the only man Lechter quotes directly is Hill) makes a wonderful change from the male-dominated voice in similar titles. In addition to worksheets helping readers form their own strategies, Lechter guides readers through the program, focusing on faith (religious and otherwise), the acquisition of knowledge, and the importance of imagination and persistence. Female Hill fans will be glad to see a book that acknowledges their ambitions.”

    “As a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and an international change-maker Sharon Lechter combines the wisdom and insights of women throughout the ages with her own powerful experiences to shed light on the road to success identified by Napoleon Hill over 75 years ago- but this time for women! I can only imagine Napoleon Hill doing the “happy dance” in Heaven when he reads what my dear friend has written to not only carry on his powerful work but revealing the undeniable importance of all women!”
    —Rita Davenport, MakingTime, Making Money

    “In this book, Sharon hits the nail on the head and shatters the old myth that men are supposed to be more successful than women and shatters the "financial glass ceiling” stigma that has held women back from financial and total life success.
    —John Assaraf, The Answer and Having It All

    “Move over Gent's, Sharon has become the new voice of modern inspiration.”
    —Greg Reid, Think and Grow Rich Stickability

    “If you are looking for a book to read that will inspire your being and move you to achieve your biggest goals Think & Grow Rich for Women is the answer! The world of business is a much better place as even more women have become wildly successful entrepreneurs & business owners. The Napoleon Hill Foundation and one of the most brilliant individuals on the planet Sharon Lechter have created the perfect book for the next generation of global entrepreneurs. Sharon has a gift to bring out the best in everyone around her through her words, thoughts and actions. The insight and wisdom that is shared in this book is exactly what every aspiring entrepreneur needs to read to understand specifically what it takes to succeed in life and business! Thank you for the brilliant gift!
    —Bill Walsh, America's Small Business Expert

    “I believe that Think and Grow Rich for Women is the right book and written at the right time to bring Napoleon Hill’s science of personal achievement to millions of women. It is destined to become a classic for all women with desire to realize their potential.”

    There is no single, widely-agreed definition of spirituality.

    Social scientists have defined spirituality as the search for the sacred, for that which is set apart
    from the ordinary and worthy of veneration, "a transcendent dimension within human experience...discovered in moments in which the individual questions the meaning of
    personal existence and attempts to place the self within a broader ontological context."

    According to Waaijman, the traditional meaning of spirituality is a process of re-formation
    which "aims to recover the original shape of man, the image of God.

    To accomplish this, the re-formation is oriented at a mold, which represents the original shape: in Judaism the Torah, in Christianity Christ, in Buddhism Buddha, in the Islam Muhammad."

    In modern times spirituality has come to mean the internal experience of the individual.

    It still denotes a process of transformation, but in a context separate from organized religious institutions: "spiritual but not religious." Houtman and Aupers suggest that modern spirituality
    is a blend of humanistic psychology, mystical and esoteric traditions and eastern religions.

    Waaijman points out that "spirituality" is only one term of a range of words
    which denote the praxis of spirituality.

    Some other terms are "Hasidism, contemplation, kabbala, asceticism, mysticism, perfection, devotion and piety".

    Spirituality can be sought not only through traditional organized religions, but also through movements such as liberalism, feminist theology, and green politics.

    Spirituality is also now associated with mental health, managing substance abuse, marital functioning, parenting, and coping.

    It has been suggested that spirituality also leads to finding purpose andmeaning in life.

    Spireality is spiritual reality.
