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

Dear Readers:

Each one of us has unlimited power in the choice of words we use. Words can harm or heal and our capacity to choose determines every time what direction we decide to take. Isn’t it amazing that simple enunciations can uplift or tear down people, communities, and nations? Truer words were never spoken!

In order to control our speech and vocabulary it is necessary to conceptualize what message we want to deliver before putting the thought into words. Tone of voice, body language and words all deliver part of the message when addressing someone in person. So, in order for a pleasing personality to take the lead role in our discourse, each one of us must condition our thought process first by holding a positive mental attitude and then considering our intention before verbalizing our thought. Words that spew forth without prior consideration are often not our best choice of communication. Words that flow in a calm fashion after considered thought are more of a blessing than a curse. .

Why is this important to know? Generally speaking a person’s choice of words determines the outcome or action that can or will be taken. If words incite rather than calm the outcome from the spoken message can be very different. Peacemakers and warmongers use different vocabulary based upon the intent. Once the purpose of the communication is determined with prior thought, then the correct message can be delivered. It has been stated that “thinking makes it so.” If correct, our thinking needs to precede our communication or else a wrong message could be delivered.

Today, begin to expand your vocabulary so that when you need the right word to convey your message it is ready and waiting. As you increase your vocabulary you are strengthening your communication style and adding additional resources to your pleasing personality. I can remember being told as a child that people who use profanity have very limited vocabularies. That served two purposes at the time: 1) to discourage the use of profanity, and 2) to enrich one’s vocabulary. Teachers can be creatively subversive in order to lure students into learning. But, the message is relevant yet today because I have read that the greater a person’s vocabulary, the higher the salary he or she is paid!

Now, that’s an outcome worth considering too.

In only minutes a day, you can enrich your vocabulary. Words are meant to be used, so find a word you have not previously spoken and speak it into existence today. Just make sure it is a positive one!

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


A Miracle Worker
by Napoleon Hill

I met Mr. Stone for the first time in 1953. It was then that I began to unravel the dramatic story of his rise to fame and fortune, starting in business for himself with only one hundred dollars in cash and a copy of my most popular book, Think and grow Rich. I was so intrigued by the effective application Stone had made of my success philosophy that I accepted his offer to help him take the Science of Personal Achievement to his entire insurance personnel.

The task covered ten years during which I devoted all of my time to helping Mr. Stone indoctrinate his entire organization with my success philosophy. It was a tremendous job but it paid off in terms which proved conclusively that my twenty years of research under the direction of Andrew Carnegie had uncovered a miraculous formula for helping people to get from where they were to where they wished to be in life.

When I first began my association with Mr. Stone, many of his top executives frowned upon the alliance as being a waste of time. They had never heard of a success philosophy based upon what five hundred outstanding men had learned from a lifetime of experience through the trial and error method, and they were naturally suspicious of it.

When I began my association with Mr. Stone the annual premium income from policy holders was around $24 million and Mr. Stone’s personal fortune was estimated to be more than $160 million.

How much did I get from the association? you may wish to ask. The cash I received was negligible in comparison with that which Mr. Stone received, but I was not working for monetary reward; I was after something far greater than that which could have been gained by any amount of money, for I had proved during those ten years of association with Mr. Stone that the Science of Personal Achievement could perform miracles for those who embraced it and made intelligent application of it.

Lyrics from Mary Poppins

This playful song talks about the miracle power of words. Words evoke emotions when spoken and heard. So the message is to use words with caution since the results can cause magical results to occur! Be certain that you mean exactly what you say and always say exactly what you mean. ~Judy Williamson


Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lad
My father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes:

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
So when the cat has got your tongue
There’s no need for dismay
Just summon up this word
And then you’ve got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it may change your life
One night I said it to me girl
And now me girl’s my wife!

She’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Think and Grow Rich for the 21st Century, (contains updated examples)

Napoleon Hill, maker of millionaires, adviser to the titans of business and industry, and confidant of presidents, started out a long way from the executive boardroom or the White House. He was born into poverty in a one-room log cabin in the mountains of southwest Virginia. Like most who achieve positions of power and influence, his rise to success was the result of many factors. However, unlike most, Napoleon Hill analyzed each key event, identified the lesson learned, reduced the lessons to basic principles, and organized the principles into a philosophy of personal achievement that could be used by anyone as a guide to creating their own success. The first significant influence on Hill was after his mother’s death when he was but eight years of age. Young Nap was fast becoming a gun-toting hell-raiser, when his father remarried and his new stepmother came into his life. Martha Ramey Banner was a woman of such clearly defined purpose and positive attitude that she altered the fortunes of the entire Hill family. Her influence on Napoleon would echo throughout his life.

Foundations for Success Patterns for InHABITing Success Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude The Little Book of Leadership


by Napoleon Hill and Judith Williamson

Foundations are essential for success in all walks of life. They provide the fundamental support that buildings, people, and organizations need in order to continue to grow. Without a firm footing at the beginning of any enterprise, few projects, people, or programs will succeed. Henry David Thoreau states: “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” Remember, it starts with a seed of thought, or in our case a coffee bean. We guarantee that when planted, nurtured and shared with good intention this seed will grow beyond your wildest imaginings. It all happens when you get the person – you – right. The rest of the process will fall into place almost upon command because a strong, permanent foundation has been laid. Success is within you, and the process required to achieve it is a simple one. It begins with your realization that you are here to provide for yourself now, care for yourself and your family in the future, and simultaneously make the world a better place in which to live now because you have contributed in an ongoing way to its beautification program through your intentional stewardship.

May you believe and achieve all your heart’s desires,

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!

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.
