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

Dear Readers:

Teamwork is critical when we need the power of combined effort to get a difficult job accomplished in record time. From corporate relations to health concerns, only teamwork can afford us the means of multiplying our resources and achieving exponential growth in time that has been condensed to give us an added advantage.

Last week I was in Houston at MDAnderson with my husband, Bob. Recently he became a patient there after being diagnosed with lung cancer. Upon diagnosis we decided to take an immediate, aggressive treatment stance. MDAnderson has been in lockstep with us every step of the way since my first call. At home it can takes weeks to get scheduled for tests and then even longer to get the results, but at this Houston facility, the team controls the outcome. Immediate attention and dedication is extended to each person as one walks in the door. I have to admit, I have never seen anything quite like it. Both my sister and my parents died from lung related illnesses, and at no time did I witness this type of medical teamwork.

With that said, I now know why MDAnderson ranks at the very top just being hedged out by Sloan Kettering in New York City. Teamwork does make a difference in the setting, rapport, and processing that is required for intake and determining diagnosis and initial scheduling. What comes next is the mastermind alliance principle wherein we now have a team of doctors looking at the problem from their professional vantage points and then conferring as a unit on the best treatment approach possible for the patient right now. Amazing to actually see this process in action.

So, I am counting on excellent results for my husband as he begins his treatment, and also for each of you as you experience the growing benefits of teamwork that can and does grow into dedicated mastermind alliances that save us from having to figure out all the intricacies and details of every single problem presented to us in Earth school. We can all be grateful for this advantage as we follow the advice of Dr. Hill and use teamwork to our personal advantage..

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


Let Others Help You Achieve Success
by Napoleon Hill

Success will come more quickly and surely if you learn how to make use of the education, experience, ability and influence of others.

Captain Eddie Rickenbacker thinks his greatest personal asset is his “ability to get other people to lend me the use of their brains in a friendly spirit of cooperation.”

“If I exchange the dollar I have for the dollar you have, we both end up no better off than when we started. But, if I exchange an idea for the idea you have, then we both end up twice as rich as we were. And teamwork is the means of multiplying our spiritual wealth to infinity,” says Capt. Rickenbacker.

Remember that two or more persons, working closely in an alliance by which they complement and supplement each other’s abilities, can always achieve far more than one.

Thomas A. Edison’s greatness as an inventor resulted from his genius for organizing teams of individuals, each with far more knowledge in their specialties than he possessed, for a common goal.

The greatest achievements of our free enterprise system come from group—rather than individual—enterprise. But the group will always require a leader. In seeking the help of others, you must be prepared to make an even trade. You can’t come empty-handed.

Lloyd Weeks of Salem, Ill., is a mechanical engineer who conceived a unique idea for constructing oil tanks. But the idea would take money to put into development. Dr. Everett O. Hancock, a neighbor, didn’t have Weeks’ engineering know-how—but he had some money, saved from his practice as a dentist.

Each contributed his resources into a business alliance that is netting them $5,000 profit each month.

It is absolutely essential that all members of an alliance share in its benefits. Otherwise the team will soon fall apart.

One evening Henry Ford was walking through his plant and stopped to talk with a floor sweeper.

“Like your job?” Ford asked.

“Yep,” the janitor said, “But I’d like it better if you sold these metal filings, instead of throwing them away, and gave me part of the money.”

Ford put the idea into operation the next day. It saved the Ford Company a worthwhile sum and gave a promotion to the janitor.

J. Edgar Hoover’s success as the greatest crime-fighter in history relies entirely upon his ability to fuse the abilities and knowledge of hundreds into a hard-hitting closely coordinated team.

What do you need to achieve success? Who has it? What can you offer in return? Maybe it’s exactly what someone else is seeking.

If so, you can pool your resources and make the fight for success much easier.

From Beaches – Upcoming Broadway Musical
Lyrics to The Wind Beneath My Wings

This song speaks of the relationship between two people who in many instances may have functioned as a team. Its sentiment is best analyzed by considering the descriptive word HERO. Heroes are not only leaders on a large scale but also those individuals who impact lives in a positive way however quietly it may happen. In everyone’s life there are heroes who receive no acclaim, reward, recognition, or fame. What they do they do because their actions reflect their system of values and beliefs. Let’s be grateful for everything that our personal heroes have contributed to our lives. If it is not too late to say “thank you,” please do so. If it is, still pass on your gratitude for your benefactor by becoming one for someone else. Play it forward as the saying goes. ~ Judy Williamson


It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way
You always walked a step behind

So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
A beautiful face without a name for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you’re my hero
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I’ve got it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth, of course
I know it
I would be nothing without you

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
You’re everything I wish I could be
I could fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings

Did I ever tell you you’re my hero?
You’re everything, everything I wish I could be
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings

‘Cause you are the wind beneath my wings
Oh, the wind beneath my wings
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings
Fly, fly, fly away, you let me fly so high
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings

Fly, fly, so high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings

Conceive It! Believe It! Achieve It!
Your Keys to Personal Achievement

It’s as simple as ABC but only in reverse! Napoleon Hill states, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” This simple statement reminds us that the power of the Universe is within each and every one of us. By directing our mind in the path we wish it to go, we determine our ultimate destiny. Simple truths hold profound wisdom. But, just because the truths are simple, does not mean that they are easy. It is my greatest hope that this little book of 52 essays will inspire you weekly to take appropriate action towards your dreams. Dreams come and go, but those that come true are the ones that you believe in without a doubt. When you believe in the power of your dreams you are compelled to take immediate action to make them a reality. May all your dreams come true! Be Your Very Best Always, Judith
