Some People Have So Much Personality, Presence And Magnetism That
They Brighten A Room When They Come In.

Others Have So Little, That
They Brighten The Room When They Leave.

All around the world, in every walk of life, there is a common desire most people have: To be - liked, loved, popular, attractive, admired, respected, recognized, listened to, and considered important. To achieve this goal, a person would have to develop many positive qualities.

Studying the “personal ads” in the newspapers, these were the most popular qualities we found that people are looking for in others. They want someone who has as many of these qualities as possible:

They want someone who is: active, adaptable, adventurous, affectionate, a good conversationalist, a good listener, ambitious, amusing, a sharp dresser, blissful, calm, caring, cheerful, classy, committed, compassionate, confident, considerate, courteous, creative, dedicated, dependable, down-to-earth, easygoing, emotionally available, energetic, ethical, even-tempered, firm, flexible, fun, gentle, honest, intelligent, lovable, loyal, mature, non-controlling, non-judgmental, non-manipulative, open-minded, optimistic, outgoing, patient, playful, positive, reliable, romantic, sensitive, sensual, serious minded, sharing, sincere, smart, sophisticated, spiritual, spontaneous, stable, strong, stylish, tactful, tender, tolerant, trim, unencumbered, unselfish, warm-hearted, well groomed, and witty. Someone who has a good sense of humor, a good vocabulary, a good imagination, a pleasing tone of voice, a warm smile, good facial expressions, hope, ambition and high expectations, good health, and someone who has and shows “class.” A person who has and projects: Charm, Presence, Charisma and Personal Magnetism.




This could be a lot of work for you to try and build all of these personality traits, but it would be very worthwhile in every area of your life.

You never see and ad where someone says: “Wanted—a super negative person for a real negative relationship.”

I saw a lot of ads that were, more or less, like the following one:

If you are financially independent, over 6 feet, muscular, trim and good looking, under 40, enjoy the good life, traveling to exotic places, dining in elegant restaurants, laying in the sun, cruise ships, theater, hot tubs, fine wines and a life of leisure and pleasure, you are in luck. Your perfect companion is eagerly waiting for your call. I’ve been dreaming about you for years. Make my dreams come true Prince Charming—your Cinderella.


Why don’t you look at the personal ads once in awhile and see what qualities you already have, or might be missing. When we’re looking for a new love, we seem to go all out to look and be at our best and then, after it’s in the bag, we start sliding backwards. We don’t put out our best effort anymore.

Achieving and then maintaining a pleasing personality is important. Being our best at all times. There are so many ways to improve and grow, if a person really wants to.

That’s why our important workshops were developed.

The principles and ideas we share in our Personal Magnetism course are all about how to more effectively attract - charm - influence - fascinate - inspire - interest - motivate - stimulate - magnetize - delight - please - arouse - win - enthuse - and lead others.

Your personality is the sum total of your mental, spiritual and physical traits, your habits and characteristics and your emotional tendencies and appearances – which distinguishes you -- from all others.

The way you carry yourself - the vitality of your body. Your behavior, actions and conduct. The clothes you wear - the lines in your face - the tone of your voice - the thoughts you think - and the character you have developed by those thoughts.

It’s the factor that, more than all others -- determines whether one is liked -- or disliked by others. To realize prosperity you need to build a powerful magnetic personality that attracts people to you.

There are many people who can look through your eyes - into your heart and soul - and see that which is written there - by the nature of your most secret thoughts.

Rick’s Comments

In 1954, I started reading all of Napoleon Hill’s books and since then read each one over thirty-five times (I stopped counting): Law of Success, Think and Grow Rich, The Master Key to Riches, Grow Rich With Peace of Mind, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, You Can Work Your Own Miracles and Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion.

In 1970, I bought a distributorship to market Napoleon Hill’s “Philosophy of Success” program and started teaching his Success Course. I created The Master Mind Alliance Success Club to help my students follow through and put the principles into practice. In addition to teaching the course in hotels, meeting rooms and in-house in many large and small corporations, I also taught the course in San Quentin Prison and at the Delancy Street Foundation for ex-cons, pimps, prostitutes, drug and alcohol addicts.

In 1974, I received a phone call from a Mr. John Haid who was the president of the Napoleon Hill Academy. He said that he heard quite a bit about my classes and me and that he wanted to fly out to San Francisco to meet with me. When we got together, he told me he was going to set up a Napoleon Hill Academy Franchise in Northern California and wanted to find the most qualified person to run it. He was here for about a week and interviewed several eager people who wanted that privilege. Many of them were very successful and had lots of money to gladly pay for the franchise. After several meetings with each one of us, John decided that I was the most knowledgeable on Napoleon Hill’s Success principles and gave the franchise to me. I am still sharing these principles in my Science of Success Achievement Course that my students are studying today.
