My Favorite Napoleon Hill Poem

http://www.amazon.com/Master-Key-Riches-Napoleon-Hill/dp/0449213501
The Master Key to Riches, by Napoleon Hill
The following quoted poem is taken from pages 91-92 of the Napoleon Hill book, The Master Key to Riches.

"I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

"For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

"I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid."

Remember that successful men and women do not bargain with Life for poverty. They bargain for riches! When you feel discouraged as entrepreneurs, refer to this poem for additional motivation.
