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

Dear Readers:

Meister Eckhart, a 13th century theologian, said: “Thoughts are our inner senses. When the inner senses are dull and blurred, you can see nothing in or of yourself; you become a respectable prisoner of received images.”

I am certain that throughout our lifetimes each of us has been a prisoner of prejudices and the opinions of others. At times, this approach seems very natural and acceptable, but once we examine our preconceived notions, we realize that we have allowed others to dictate our thinking and thereby control our lives. Creative visioning is a way of accessing new and worthy ideas that allow us to break out of the pattern of past practices.

Dr. Hill teaches us that we can control the outcomes in our lives by controlling our behaviors. When we decide to follow a certain approach to creating the life we choose to live, we are enabling creative vision to move to the forefront. Just by making the decision to approach life from a neutral stance, we give ourselves the gift of opportunity rather than the curse of living by a worn out model of behavior. “What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve,” is the mantra of Dr. Hill’s philosophy of personal achievement, and when a student discovers that thinking makes it so, the results are limitless. If you decide to practice creative visioning, you will awaken to an enriched life, and discover that you can and do control your destiny. This gift of free will is a remarkable gift that allows each of us to choose the direction we will go in life. It is a priceless gift that delivers our ultimate result.

Consider what you might like to do tomorrow, next week, or next year. Now begin to step into your future by doing what it is you dream about. The dream has magic within it, and only you can hold the magic wand of free will and allow your dreams to be fulfilled.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


Examples of Creative Vision
by Napoleon Hill

Dr. Elmer Gates, a contemporary of Thomas A. Edison, lived in Chevy Case, Maryland. While Mr. Edison had but little formal schooling, Dr. Gates was skilled in many of the sciences and had the benefit of an extensive formal education.

He was recognized throughout the world of science as a scientist of the highest caliber, and his scientific inventions, as disclosed by the records of the U. S. Patent Office, outnumbered those of Mr. Edison two to one. He began his career, as did Mr. Edison, by depending at first upon this imagination, and then developed it into creative vision through constant application and use.

During the latter portion of Dr. Gates’ life he earned his living entirely by the application of his highly developed power of creative vision. His method of application is worthy of consideration by the most profound thinkers, because it proves that one may develop the faculty of imagination until it leads to the power of creative vision.

Your mind may create some good ideas if you don’t keep it too busy with poor ones.

Let us call Dr. Gates’ method of applying creative vision “the habit of sitting for ideas,” for that is precisely what he did. For this purpose he had a soundproof room in which he did the “sitting.” When he wanted a solution to a problem, he went into this room, closed the door, seated himself at a table supplied with pencil and paper, and turned off the lights. He then concentrated his thoughts upon the nature of his problem, and waited for the reception of ideas that he needed for its solution.

Sometimes the ideas would immediately begin to flow into his mind. At other times he waited for an hour or more before they began to make their appearance. And on some occasions no ideas came through.

Dr. Gates refined and perfected more than two hundred and fifty patents by this method. These patents covered ideas which inventors, who had less creative vision than he, had undertaken to perfect, but on which the other inventors had fallen short of success. He added to their ideas the finishing touches that were needed to give them mechanical perfection.

His method of sitting for ideas was simple. He began by examining the application for the patent until he found its weakness, using his own testing laboratory or, when necessary, that of the U.S. Bureau of Standards. Then he went into his soundproof room, with the patent application and the drawings explaining the application, placed them before him on the table, and waited for the unknown quantity to appear. When it did appear, it came in the form of an idea which provided the information he was seeking.

Dr. Gates’ skill in the use of creative vision was so well known, and so trustworthy, that he was retained by many large industrial corporations for the purpose of helping them solve some of their mechanical, economic, and industrial problems. He was paid a handsome fee for his time.

When Dr. Gates was asked to explain the source from which he received his results while sitting for ideas, he gave the following explanation:

(a) The knowledge acquired from individual experience, observation, education. The storehouse of the memory.

(b) The store of knowledge accumulated by others through the same media, which may be contacted through mental telepathy.

(c) The universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence, wherein is stored all knowledge and all facts, which may be contacted through the subconscious mind.

“When I sit for ideas, I may tune in to one or all of these sources. If other sources of ideas are available, I do not know what they are.”

When You Wish Upon a Star
Lyrics from Pinocchio the Musical

As children we all listened to this song and practiced wishing upon a star to make our dreams come true. Remember when you fully believed in your dreams and just knew they would come true? Well, it’s not too late to begin again. Go outdoors tonight and tell the Universe about your innermost dreams. They will come true. Believe. ~ Judy Williamson


When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
