          1. stage presence

          4. sound

b) Decide what is the good thing that comes about because of those words “Every chain is broken, we dec... and declare”.

Napoleon Hill on Time: Time is “his greatest asset”. His philosophy was to work on improving self as long as day is long as night. When sleep comes it's okay to take time off. Using time wrong will require a reassessment of future endeavors.

On sowing seeds: By improving self, others will benefit from the seeds sown, and the law of getting compensation is a benefit as well as peace of mind.

On habits: By concentrating on my endeavors, goals, and circumstances, all fear and frustration not desired, will be low-key, and my mind will not be attracted to it.

On limits: My pursuit of talents and endeavors, and the people with me, know they can be diligently inspired.

On influence: It is my belief self-discipline inspires, influences, and gives us character.
