Vintage Essays By Judy Williamson, Director of the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center at Purdue University Calumnet

Dear Readers:

Napoleon Hill states: “Self-discipline is the only sure means of developing and maintaining a positive mental attitude. It is the medium by which one learns from his mistakes and discovers the seed of an equivalent benefit in all of his failures and defeats.”

This principle of success is needed at certain critical times more than others in life. When one encounters failure it is the turning on of more willpower rather than quitting when the going gets tough that keeps one on the success beam. And then again, when a person achieves success, it is the continued practice of self-discipline that keeps the person who has already arrived at a level of success marching to the correct drummer.

Self-discipline is to the mind what exercise is to the body. By staying tuned up and in good working order both mentally and physically, a person is able to withstand the slings and arrows of misfortune more readily and soldier through them to arrive at a better day.

The signers of the Declaration of Independence had to exert extreme self-discipline in completing the task they took on for their constituents. They were reminded that either they hang together in getting the job done or surely they would hang separately for being rebels. By staying the course and aligning themselves with the vision of Freedom for one and all, they were risk-takers who challenged the ruling authority and secured a better place for themselves, their communities, their nation, and now the world. In retrospect, their mission exceeded their comprehension. But the world is now a better place because they started rather than stalled when their beliefs were challenged. Standing up for what one believes in is not easy, but it is the only way to engage discussion and conversation in creating a better world.

Today, when we consider the gift of our Nation’s Founding Fathers, it is evident that self-discipline played a major role in creating the country that is emulated by others around the globe and enjoyed by the citizens who honor freedom and have the courage to declare it is a God given right. The United States of America is blessed to have been gifted with free thinkers and individuals who choose to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others as well. May we stay the course for many years to come!

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success

 

The Magic Plan
by Napoleon Hill

“A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances.”

As surely as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, here is a plan that will transform your personality into whatever you wish it to be:

Place this page on the walls of your room. Each night before you retire, relax, shut out all other thoughts and repeat the following, with firm determination to build it into your character, keeping your eyes fixed upon the picture of each character as you repeat the words which indicate the qualities you wish to build by emulating that character:

LINCOLN: As I look upon your face I definitely pledge my earnest efforts to develop in my own character those qualities of patience, tolerance and love for all humanity, the weak and the strong, friend and foe, which were your distinguishing marks. I will emulate your example by looking for the good there is in others and by developing a love for justice.

EMERSON: As I look upon your face I resolve to develop in my own character those qualities which helped you to leave your footprints on the sands of time, namely, the ability to read the handwriting of Nature, as it is written in the faces of men, in flowing brooks, in the flowers, in growing trees, in the singing birds, in the faces of little children and in the rocks of prison walls.

ELBERT HUBBARD: As I look upon your face I resolve to develop in my own character that rare ability, that was your distinguishing mark, to state my conclusions in words that vibrate with life, action and enthusiasm.

WASHINGTON: As I look upon your face I resolve to develop courage and the persistence with which to complete all that I undertake.

NAPOLEON: As I look upon your face I resolve to develop the strategic ability to lay hold of the organized forces that are available for my use, and to develop the self-confidence to master all handicaps which come my way. You shall serve as a constant reminder that the quitter never wins; that eternal vigilance and the courage to carry on in spite of every obstacle are the price of success.

Notes

You’re A Grand Old Flag
lyrics from George M!

As a salute to the USA, please enjoy the lyrics by George M. Cohen.

Flags are symbolic of many things, but let’s remember that the flag memorialized in this show tune stands primarily for freedom, bravery and peace. May these qualities endure now and forever. Happy 4th of July! ~ Judy Williamson

 

There’s a feeling comes a-stealing,
And it sets my brain a-reeling,
When I’m listening to the music of a military band.

Any tune like “Yankee Doodle”
Simply sets me off my noodle,
It’s that patriotic something that no one can understand.

“Way down South, in the land of cotton”,
Melody untiring,
Ain’t that inspiring?
Hurrah! Hurrah! We’ll join the Jubilee!
And that’s going some,
For the Yankees, by gum!

Red, white and blue, I am for you!
Honest, you’re a grand old flag!

You’re a Grand Old Flag
You’re a High Flying Flag
And forever, in peace, may you wave!
You’re the emblem of the land I love,
The home of the free and the brave!

Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White, and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the Grand Old Flag!

I’m a cranky hanky panky,
I’m a dead square, honest Yankee,
And I’m mighty proud of that old flag
That flies for Uncle Sam.

Though I don’t believe in raving
Ev’ry time I see it waving,
There’s a chill runs up my back that makes me glad I’m what I am.

Here’s a land with a million soldiers,
That’s if we should need ‘em,
We’ll fight for freedom!

Hurrah! Hurrah! For every Yankee tar
And old G.A.R.
Ev’ry stripe, ev’ry star.
Red, white and blue,
Hats off to you
Honest, you’re a grand old flag!

You’re a Grand Old Flag
You’re a High Flying Flag
And forever, in peace, may you wave!
You’re the emblem of the land I love,
The home of the free and the brave!

Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White, and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the Grand Old Flag!

Dr. Fox is joined in authorship by his son, Barry Fox, and they make an amazing father and son team.

Patterns For InHABITing Success plus Affirmation Cards

Compilation by Dr. J.B. Hill and Judith Williamson

Success is best understood as a series of related habits which are deliberate actions taken over time that because of repetition become rote. Once these success habits become rote they perform right on schedule for us because they have become a downloaded pattern housed in our subconscious mind. Once entrenched in our subconscious mind, these routine habits have the determination and persistence of weeds, but conversely these now deliberatively cultivated habits are higher functioning and productive. They are the children of our thoughts, and they are intentionally placed inside our inner psyche to produce offspring that complement who we are and what we still intend to become. What more marvelous gift could anyone other than a benevolent God give to His children? Once the key is found to this Treasure Chest, all the goodness of the universe will be ours for the asking. The simple directive – Knock – Seek – Ask – has always been there for us!

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judith Williamson

This book comes with a set of 52 affirmation cards!

Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude

Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone

Your mind has a secret invisible talisman. On one side is emblazoned the letters PMA (positive mental attitude) and on the other the letters NMA (negative mental attitude). A positive attitude will naturally attract the good and the beautiful. The negative attitude will rob you of all that makes life worth living.

Your success, health, happiness, and wealth depend on how you make up your mind!

When motivational pioneer Napoleon Hill and millionaire CEO W. Clement Stone teamed up to form one of the most remarkable partnerships of all time, the result was Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, the phenomenon that proposed to the world that with the right attitude, anyone can achieve his or her dreams.

Now this remarkable book is available for the twenty-first century. You, too, can take advantage of the program that has brought success to generations of people seeking — and finding — a better way to live.

Hard cover, collector’s edition $40.00 (free shipping within continental USA.)
