The book that you have purchased was conceived and compiled by the Invictus Mastermind Group, a body formed by its members to harness the collective power of the “master alliance” principle discussed in Napoleon Hill’s renowned work, Think and Grow Rich. The group’s members became acquainted with each other on the unitedplayersofamerica.com’s forum, an internet message board created by Tariq “King Flex” Nasheed for the readers of his bestselling books. While posting on various topics on the message board, many members routinely included inspirational quotations from a myriad of sources within their individual posts. Over time, many new members to the board requested quotes and inspirational words to aid them in efforts to “upgrade” their “game”. This text is the answer to that call. The quotations contained within have affected many of us individually, so we decided to compile a list of relevant quotes that relate to the “mackish” lifestyle that we live and to which many aspire. An extensive search was conducted for quotations that relate to the following topics: Attitude, Leadership, Money, and Relationships & Marriage. As there are fifty-two (52) weeks in a year, each section contains a minimum of fifty-two (52) quotations. This format offers the reader at least one quote per section for each week of the year. Some sections contain a bit more as these areas are the foundation upon which one’s “swagger” is built. First, the reader is presented with quotations relating to Attitude, as a positive attitude toward one’s endeavors is essential to being successful in those matters. Next, quotations dealing with Leadership appear, as a true “Mack” must thoroughly understand this concept if he expects others to follow him. Quotations regarding Money appear in the subsequent section, as every man of means should have an intimate knowledge of how to acquire wealth and maintain it once it is within his grasp; accordingly, the quotes contained herein are meant to inspire and guide the reader in the pursuit of these goals. Last, as today’s urban, renaissance man ultimately strives to find a suitable mate with whom to share his success, the Relationships & Marriage section was included to give the reader some direction in this regard; it contains wisdom for those who desire to marry, as well as those seeking to maintain a marriage. This text is not meant to be a one-time read. Instead, it is meant to be reviewed on a continual basis, as one’s experiences will give new meaning and relevance to the quotes found in each section. We trust that by reading and internalizing the timeless wisdom distilled within the pages to follow, this volume will prove to be an invaluable, motivational resource as you seek to master your fate, and make your dreams become reality.

Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard. People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choices words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech. ~ Edwin H. Friedman 49) The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen. ~ Frank Lloyd Wright 50) When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. ~ Helen Keller 51) Good fortune shies away from gloom. Keep your spirits up. Good things will come to you and you will come to good things. ~Glorie Abelhas 52) The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes. ~ Charles R. Swindoll
