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

Dear Readers:

The 12th Principle in the Science of Success is Teamwork. Napoleon Hill defines it as follows:

Teamwork is harmonious cooperation that is willing, voluntary and free. Whenever the spirit of Teamwork is the dominating influence in business or industry, success is inevitable. Harmonious cooperation is a priceless asset that you can acquire in proportion to your giving. Teamwork, in a spirit of friendliness, costs little in the way of time and effort. Generosity, fair treatment, courtesy, and a willingness to serve are qualities that pay high dividends whenever they are applied in human relations.

In everyday life Teamwork takes the burden off of one individual and disperses it among the many. Treating tasks proportionately in relation to the number on the team eases everyone’s duties and strengthens the overall outcome. This seems contradictory, but it is true. When the work load is spread around, the phrase “many hands make light work” becomes a reality. Also, group participation in a project not only causes everyone to share in the work, but also allows everyone to participate in the glory of a good outcome.

In class, I share the story “Stone Soup.” This little tale demonstrates what beneficial outcomes can come from a community of people who share what they have with one another. At first, people are reluctant to contribute due to feeling that there must be a catch to the process, but after getting involved the same people develop more enthusiasm for the joint cooking effort and decide for themselves what else can be done. Once the soup is ready, townspeople have set the banquet table, decorated it, and made room for anyone wanting a serving of the soup. In the process people open their hearts and minds to the idea of giving freely and giving in the spirit of gratitude for the gifts that they have received. The reciprocal nature of Teamwork is what makes this story such a classic example of Teamwork.

As people share in their bounty, they also receive in return. When working as a team, any group can gain from the team generated outcome. Praise, recognition, growth, enhancement of self-esteem, and the knowledge of a job well-done, all enable team members to celebrate the group accomplishment that together they have achieved. From cleaning a house, to publishing a book, to supporting a common cause, each team member supports the idea that “teamwork makes the dream work!”

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


Work With Your Team
Golden Rule Key to Cooperation
by Napoleon Hill

There are two kinds of cooperation. One is based on the motive of fear or need. The other is based upon voluntary willingness. Cooperation is indispensable in your home, in your job, in your social life. It is an absolute necessity in our form of government and system of free enterprise.

Teamwork can be acquired only by establishing the proper motive to induce friendly coordination of effort.

Andrew Carnegie’s method of inspiring teamwork has never been improved upon.

First, he established a monetary motive through promotions and bonuses to suit each individual’s job, designed so that a part of the individual’s income depended on the sort of service he rendered.

Second, he never reprimanded any employee openly. But he caused the employee tor reprimand himself, by asking carefully directed questions.

Third, he never made decisions for his executives. He encouraged them to make their own and to be responsible for the results.

Upper Level Success

Success on the upper levels of achievement is attained only by teamwork. This means giving cooperation as well as receiving it. Selfish leaders will get little cooperation from their subordinates because cooperation is something like love in that one must give it in order to get it.

Lyrics for Teamwork from
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

This song is the perfect teamwork song that organizational cheerleaders can use to motivate teams to success. Having the will to win is the one prerequisite to accomplishing any dream – large or small. By wanting to achieve the intended outcome, teams unify and accomplish many a difficult goal or job in no time. Still, it makes one wonder if this is all it takes to produce a good outcome why do so many problems remain unsolved in our world today? Perhaps by focusing more on teamwork and not focusing on who ultimately gets the credit, more problems would be peacefully resolved and indeed the world would be a better place in which to live. ~ Judy Williamson


One way, I know of one way, Lets unite and right this wrong.
One way, there’s only one way, we must form a fighting throng.
If the same great dream is beating in each heart,
there’s no stopping what a fighting team can start.
For all together, a team can weather, any storm they may go through.
Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work,
can make the greatest dreams come true.

Maybe, with some surprises, we could even fight a plight.
Right. Maybe, despite our sizes, we could win the day, tonight. Right!
If our hearts and hands, team up and fight as one,
we won’t stop until the victory is won!

When you’re united, a torch is lighted, the golden flame of liberty.

Yes teamwork can make a dream work and we’ll stand tall, and proud, and free.

There’s that spark of a dream in every one of you.
It’s the dream of freedom that your heart’s desire.
Though one tiny little spark, can barely make a mark,
all together many sparks can light a mighty fire!

Teamwork, can make a dream work, if we all pitch in and try.
Teamwork can make a dream work, and no mountain is too high!
If the same great dream, is beating in each heart,
there’s no stopping what a fighting team can start.
For, all together, a team can weather,
any storm they may got through.
Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work
can make the greatest dreams come true.
Teamwork can make a dream work if you’re not afraid to fight.
Teamwork can make a dream work, if you fight for what is right.
Though it seems a dream’s impossible to do,
great teams make it’s possibilities come true.
So when you start out, let all your heart out.
And we won’t stop what we begin!
Yes, teamwork can make a dream work if we have got the will to win.
Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work if we have got the will to win!

The Napoleon Hill Foundation has been the beneficiary of numerous good things from W. Clement Stone’s estate in the past decade. One of the invaluable items gifted to us is a series of “lessons” that Psychologist J. Martin Kohe created in 1952 when conducting his “How to Become a Mental Millionaire” course.

You must integrate the lesson on more than just the knowledge level if you are to make a difference in your life. W. Clement Stone and Dr. Hill both reiterated “action is the key.” Action equals application, and that is precisely what Kohe’s lessons bring to us. Knowledge first, understanding second, and application third. This process guarantees success in any endeavor as long as you are consistent and persistent in your approach.

It is with great pleasure that I bring these lessons to you from the Napoleon Hill archives for your immediate use. Do not let these applications remain untried. Remember, action is the key. Unlock the key to your full potential and become the Mental Millionaire that you are fully capable of becoming. Begin the adventure and reap the reward. Unlimited success to you!


Napoleon Hill’s Timeless Thoughts for Today pairs Dr. Hill’s philosophy with actions that will move you toward success. First chart your course, next plan your method of travel, and third, step into the journey and begin! As you progress, you can then evaluate what actions work best for you. Look at this book as your treasure map. When you follow it to your destination, you will be rewarded with finding the treasure you seek.

Only $25.00 for both, includes shipping in the continental USA! (shipping outside USA is extra)
