A Year of Growing Rich:  Showmanship

Book Cover


This is the 14th week of a 52 week motivational journey and I want to invite you along.  Each week, I will touch on one of the chapters from Napoleon Hill's book titled  A Year of Growing Rich and subtitled "52 Steps to Achieving Life's Rewards."  

If you would like you can pick up a new or used copy from Amazon for as low as a few cents  -- a great investment in your future.  Previous posts in this series can be accessed by clicking here.



Sometimes a person who really deserves more doesn't get the recognition because they are just overlooked. Showmanship can make a huge difference.

Hill says, "...develop showmanship and watch how much easier it is to climb the ladder of success".

"There is a distinct difference between true showmanship and less honest ways of attracting attention to yourself", cautions Hill.

Boastfulness and apple polishing are seen as negative and extremes can sometimes backfire. Hill says, "True showmanship is creative. It has, as the name implies, a certain entertainment value. It demands ingenuity and a good sense of timing".

Explaining that true showmanship can be simple, he says, "Sometimes attention to the niceties of courtesy and politeness can achieve the same purposes".

By letting others know that you care and appreciate them, you will see that they start to care and appreciate you.

Hill concludes with, "But don't wait. Start now to use showmanship as a tool to build your success"!

Dear Gary -

Hope you are well.  May have to get the book soon!

Good to hear from Lottie (#3) about her technique - sincerity - and hear the story of Anna's (#5) dad and her admiration for him.

Have a happy day -
Lynn

Dale Carnegie said it very well.  "Show a genuine interest in others and you will be successful."  (or something like that)   I'll be looking forward to your upcoming chapters.

Anna, It sounds like your Dad really understood showmanship. That is a perfect example of what Hill is talking about.

Judi,  The sincere interest is so important.  And I'm glad that you are enjoying this series.  

Lynn,  The book is definitely worth having so that you can read it over and over. 

Doug, Thanks for stopping by.  Dale Carnegie also has a lot of great quotes.
