Sometimes it takes a personal experience to bring what should be an obvious problem into focus. For Rick Goodman, that came as he evaluated his wife’s experience navigating the complex world of cancer treatment and helping him develop a better understanding of how the people that surrounded her care made a difference in helping her get better. In the video, “Prescription for Success in the Healthcare Industry, Dr. Rick focuses on the human side of healthcare and discusses how he challenges healthcare organizations to inspire and train their people. He strives to help leaders in healthcare organizations recognize that everyone in the organization, not just the clinical professionals, can contribute to the positive outcome of their patients. According to Dr. Rick, all healthcare professionals “have the power to help the patient or the power to make the patient feel helpless”. Dr. Rick brings focused training programs targeted at the healthcare industry that help organizations create a strong patient-focused culture.

In his final lesson in Law of Success, Napolean Hill discusses “the Golden Rule”, and how he believes it to be the driving force in gaining success. “The Golden Rule” is defined as “the guiding star that will enable you to profitably and constructively use the knowledge assembled in the previous lessons".
To put it simply, following this law is the only way to apply the power that the preceding lessons provide. The universal definition of “The Golden Rule” is to do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you if your positions were reversed. This must be taken very seriously, as Hill stresses the fact that all of your actions and thoughts will come back to you, for better or worse. It is not enough to merely believe in the philosophy of the Golden Rule, but rather one must apply it.
The primary key to this lesson is that the Golden Rule, when understood and applied, makes dishonesty, selfishness, greed, envy, hatred and malice impossible to maintain. One must be blatantly honest, and realize you are only punishing yourself by every wrong you commit, and rewarding yourself by every act of constructive conduct.
