“I have noticed in my career that people who are successful tend to speak well of other successful people. Failures or those who are on their way to failure often speak of those who are successful with either envy or malice.”

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

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.
~Chinese Proverb

Dear Readers:

Choosing a definite major purpose in our lives is truly a worthy choice. When we create a plan, and work the plan with faith and hope in a positive outcome, we intentionally forecast our life’s end result, its fulfillment. From an acorn to an oak tree, from a caterpillar to a butterfly, from a seed to a blossom, we hold high expectations for potential outcomes for ourselves and others. By considering our early strengths and abilities we may begin to discern the plan for our lives that is being played out from birth. It seems easy enough, but is it?

Well meaning people often typecast their children into roles that they are not made for in life. They “see” a physician when the child wants to be a librarian. The “hold on” to athletic tendencies that appear in high school and label the teenager the next and upcoming great in some sport that the teenager has no interest in pursuing into the next stage of life. They “guide” a child toward the career they themselves could not achieve due to life’s challenges and setbacks.

However, when we consider the fate of the acorn, the caterpillar, and the seeds of various sorts, whatever is unique within each of them plays out to the fulfillment of their abilities. This is the innate blessing from birth. As difficult as it may be to accept, each of us is headed to our special destination from birth, and the journey that gives us peace, contentment, and fulfillment, is the one that matches our blueprint, our genetic code, our uniqueness that is provided at birth by the Creator, Infinite Intelligence, and is the treasure within ourselves.

This week’s children’s story is the adaptation of an American Folktale, The Tale of Three Trees. It is retold by Angela Elwell Hunt and is illustrated by Tim Jonke. It begins with “Once upon a mountaintop, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up . . . .”

As the story unfolds, the wishes, or definite major purpose, of each little seedling is stated.
Little tree one states: “I will be the most beautiful treasure chest in the world.”
Little tree two states: “I will be the strongest ship in the world.”
Little tree three states: “I will be the tallest tree in the world.”

Days, weeks, months, and years pass, and the trees are felled for the three woodcutters’ uses. The story then reveals what happens to each of them. The little trees’ statements of their purpose is fulfilled, but in ways they could not even imagine.

It seems to me that our lives take twists and turns on the rocky roads of life to bring us to our destiny also. Infinite Intelligence hands us the ingredients for our success at birth. Our choices carry us to our fulfillment in due time. Napoleon Hill reminds us to be faithful rather than fearful. Faith and fear cannot co-exist. To be faithful means to believe in the goodness of the Universe and that nothing can interfere with the Creator’s plan for us. Faithfulness eases our trek in life while fearfulness constantly throws up roadblocks and dead ends. Anxiety and nervousness accompany fear, and peace, contentment, and acceptance accompany faith.

Consider the tale of the three trees, and cultivate the true abilities of children who are your own or who you influence. Learn to allow their abilities to grow and compliment them on their movement toward becoming that very precious something unique that they were put here to become at birth.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success

 

Your Mind is Your Master
by Napoleon Hill

You had nothing to do with your coming into this world. You may have little or nothing to do with your leaving it. But you have almost everything to do with your life while you possess that life. You can be the master of your fate, the captain of your soul by the simple process of taking possession of your own mind and using it to guide your own life without meddling in the lives of others.

Notice the connection between mastering yourself and not attempting to master others. A major reason for unhappiness is the tendency to meddle with the lives of others while we take too little time in trying to perfect our own.

Nobody else can do the job of taking possession of your mind, nor should you permit anyone else to try. Your mind is your master; yet your mind can be such a kindly master that it responds to your needs and desires and finds ways to make them come true when they are definite. All other creatures on earth are bound throughout their lives by a fixed pattern of instinct from which they cannot escape. YOU are bound only by the pattern you set up in your own mind. YOU are limited by nothing else.

Dear Students and Friends of the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center,

As Dr. Hill reminds us, each of us is in control of our destiny by the habits we fix in our lives. May all your habits be good ones!

The habit of lifelong learning is shared by almost all fans of Napoleon Hill’s writing. We have three upcoming events in 2015 that mix business, education, and recreation. During our Leader Certification conferences, we study intensely, but we also make plenty of time for socializing and networking with like-minded people.

Have you made the commitment to become a recognized certified instructor of Dr. Hill’s Philosophy of Success?

I hope you will join us for at least one of our major events this year. Our classes typically bring together 30 to 40 people for a life-changing experience.

You’re already reading the Thought for the Day, and if you’re like most subscribers, you’re inspired every morning. Are you ready to receive even more of Dr. Hill’s wisdom and practical advice for realizing your goals?

If so, please consider yourself cordially invited to become part of our group. Just click below to get full details of the 2015 World Learning Center events.

Think and Grow Rich

by Napoleon Hill

As Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, I receive many requests from people wanting the original 1937 copy of Think and Grow Rich. To satisfy those of you who desire to have a 1937 unedited copy, we have reproduced Napoleon Hill’s personal copy of the first edition, printed in March of 1937. The book has the notation, “not to be loaned,” and signed: Annie Lou Hill (the wife of Dr. Hill). This personal copy of Dr. Hill’s was given to me by Dr. Charles W. Johnson, Chairman of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and a nephew of Napoleon Hill. It was Napoleon Hill who sent Dr. Johnson to medical school, and today he is a practicing cardiologist. Charlie refers to Napoleon Hill as “Uncle Nap” and will often makes the statement, “Uncle Nap would be proud of the Foundation today.” The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife.
