When I look around my office, I see success literature everywhere.

One of my favorites, especially in my early years, was Napoleon Hill’s classic, Think and Grow Rich.

You know that one. But I wonder if you know about another, smaller book he wrote 40 years later, when he was nearly 85 years old, called Grow Rich with Peace of Mind.

Reveals Real Secret

Reveals Real Secret

He said he wrote it because he wanted to demonstrate more fully not only that “there is more to life than making money” but also “that peace of mind in itself is a mighty force in helping you make money.”

He’s right on both counts.

But here’s something else he wrote – something intriguing you might easily overlook:

“I have said this book has been nearly 70 years in the planning. Quite true, but until recently I did not know it. I believe we are all guided by invisible sources of inspiration, and recently there came to me inspiration from a strange and very real source, revealing how much of my life has been spent in preparing me to write these pages, urging me to uncover my typewriter and get to work.”

Just reading that gives me chills — especially in light of my newest audio program with Nightingale-Conant – The Zero Point: How to Enter the Realm of Limitless Possibilities.

What is this invisible source of inspiration that Napoleon Hill describes?

The Zero Point.

The White Board.




All that is.

Zero is not something “out there.”

It’s something within you, intrinsic and innate, that whispers to your heart, “Be this…Do this…”

It includes your mind, but goes beyond your mind.

It’s how you can think bigger than ever before.

Zero is alive – and you can make a request of it that is so magnificent that you’re constantly able to live a life of consistent expectancy.

This is not the same as intending something.

Intentions are from your ego, based on your past.

They’re based on what your mind thinks is possible, which means that intentions are based on current data.

They have built-in limitations.

Inspiration, on the other hand, can blow your mind.

How do you receive this kind of inspiration?

As I wrote in my recently released book, At Zero: The Quest for Miracles through Ho’oponopono

Sequel to "Zero Limits"

Sequel to "Zero Limits"

“The key to modern day Ho’oponopono is letting go of any and all programs, so you can be one with Divinity, otherwise called at Zero. The secret is to delete the programming as you become aware of it. When you do, Divinity will come to you and through you.”

I believe when Napoleon Hill talked about peace of mind and inspiration, he was referring to the Zero Point. I believe he was quite familiar with it.

How else could he have written a book that reached around the world as many times as Think and Grow Rich?

Just as I said in my new audio program, the promise of Zero, of awakening to your Divinity, is such that it will “help you create limitless possibilities for yourself, your family, your friends, and the world at large – from this day forward, a new level of peace, joy, and confidence.”

Napoleon Hill – he was my kind of guy.

Inspiration was his secret, too.

    This sounds like what I’ve learned to call the Void.

    To quote from a fantasy novel I’m writing:


    “The Void is the source of all existence. It is the emptiness from which all Worlds have come and to which they will one day return, the source energy of all life, and the core of all existence. It contains all opposites and paradoxes, the energy of all that is, while containing nothing itself. It is full of the potential for everything we have and are and might become. It is Creation, the Chaos at the centre of all ordered reality.”

    Mark blinked at the almost poetic description.

    “But where is it, Master?”

    “Where? There is no ‘where’ for the Void; it is everywhere and nowhere. We exist within it and it exists within us, but we cannot touch it or see it. … once you enter the Void, you will never leave.”

    “Is it a trap which you cannot escape?”

    “Not at all, you do not leave because all opposites and stresses within you are balanced, and you have no desire to leave. It is perfect peace, the Nirvana for which some philosophers of your World yearn.”


    Is this what you call “Zero”? I believe it may be.

    Hey Joe!
    Great blog post! My wife and I got trendies value from your last event in Austin (she was about to pop out twins at the time!)
    Twin girls – Jayleigh and Eliza are perfectly healthy and awesome!

    Curious if you’ve read and what your thoughts are on Napoleon Hill’s “Outwitting the Devil”. I’ve found myself giving several books away and coming back to it often!

    Best to You,

    I am obsessed with Think and Grow Rich. I read it a year or two ago and wrote inside the front cover all my goals. I just retread it and it’s amazing how many of those goals manifested in the last year. I wrote about it and my in going journey manifesting, it’s life changing.

    Greetings Dr. Joe,

    Something had brought me here, and I read this article. I do really enjoy most of your posts, you know?

    I lost contact with Margeaux from your office and tried hard to message you and receive some of love-fulfilled words from you.

    Still very happy that I found your book that day (magic story, do you remember?) that opened my mind and gave me an opportunity to finally reach ho’oponopono level, which I even couldn’t imagine years ago.

    As always, I would love to thank you for all Sir.

    At know I am working on a little problem, but this word doesn’t mean conventionial problem to me.
    My mom is sick from migraine, like millions of people in the world and I am trying to find something that can help them, from about a week. And because i study Bio-science i believe in the effect much more than ever.

    When i have a problem/issue I usually sit down on a little session of Ho’oponopono.
    I ALWAYS receive an answer, and it happened too on todays ‘session’. I was brought here by divinity I think, feeling it in my heart very strongly.

    I am just curious to hear your opinion about migraine, maybe you can show me some clues, maybe you can show me what can I do next to help all of people suffering from it.

    It would be awesome to hear some of your opinion again, like when I corresponded with Margeaux.

    Much more love that we could imagine,

    Yours, Maciek
