To apply the
principles of How to Think Better & Grow Richer you
need to choose a sport. Sport originally meant to (des) carry
(porto) away. Loosely, it meant to carry away from work.
Often, work is considered what one has to do, such as earn a living.
Play or sport, on the other hand, is what you want to do for its
intrinsic value and joy. Outstanding results often occur when
a person considers his or her business venture, occupation, mission,
goal, work, or challenge to be a sport.

understand what a sport involves:
system - score
principles - points - profit

value true health (living longer without degenerative disease) and
true wealth (having the resources to do what you yearn to do) then
USANA might be your ideal sport. Because you will be part of a team,
you will be able to concentrate on playing your strengths while
other team members with their strengths make a complete whole.
Principles are cause and effect
relationships. Knowing and applying principles gives you the power
to achieve what you want. The history of the world and the
biographies of successful people are full of examples of how the
discovery and use of principles resulted in great accomplishments.
That was the basis of Napoleon Hill's book on How to Think &
Grow Rich. He interviewed the top self-made millionaires of
his time and discovered the principles they used to become wealthy.

What is intelligence? I believe the best, most useful,
definition of true intelligence is:
the ability to learn and apply true principles to reach desired
goals/purpose. Unless you know a person’s priority purposes,
how could you determine what his or her intelligence was or how
to increase that intelligence? What if you purpose was to become
a great pianist? What would be the best intelligence to have?
What about a great hunter or engineer or distance runner? Now
you can see why the above definition of intelligence is so
useful: the ability to learn and apply true principles to
reach your goals/purpose.
