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

“Concentration is everything. On the day I’m performing, I don’t hear anything anyone says to me.” ~Luciano Pavarotti

Dear Readers:

The Three Questions, written and illustrated by Jon J. Muth, is based on a story by Leo Tolstoy. In this children’s version, Nikolai is seeking the answers to three questions from Leo, the wise old turtle. Nikolai’s thoughtful questions are:

a. When is the best time to do things?
b. Who is the most important one?
c. What is the right thing to do?

As Nikolai sets out on his quest to find answers to his questions, he encounters someone needing help and someone in trouble. By acting on what needs to be done in the moment, he is led to the answers he seeks while on his own journey.

This philosophical story teaches that we find what we are seeking. By asking the questions and knowingly looking for answers, Nikolai is placing himself on the path of knowledge. He knows what he is looking for and recognizes it when he finds it. The clearer the vision, the more immediate and accurate the outcome. By using controlled attention in order to consciously look for a response, the subconscious mind is also engaged. When the outcome appears on schedule, it is recognized for what it is.

By being crystal clear in your mind as to your intended destination, distractions, blind alleys, and diversions can be avoided. The main ingredient in controlled attention is self-discipline. When a vision is created and self-discipline employed, the road to success is traveled more economically. Missteps are avoided and your course is charted toward success.

In the end of the story, the old turtle sums it up best by saying, “Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is now. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side.”

Wise words to live by. In summary, seek and you will find.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


The Key to Thought Power
by Napoleon Hill

Concentration on one’s major purpose projects a clear picture of that purposes upon the conscious mind and holds it there until it is taken over by the subconscious and acted upon. This is called controlled attention.

Controlled attention is the act of coordinating all the faculties of the mind and directing their combined power to a given end. It is an act which can be achieved only by the strictest sort of self-discipline. Attention that is not controlled and directed may be nothing more than idle curiosity. The word controlled is the key to thought power.

You may achieve controlled attention by the application of the following six factors, through the application of self-discipline:

a. Definiteness of purpose, the starting point of all achievement.
b. Imagination, through which the object of one’s purpose is illuminated and mirrored in the mind so clearly that its nature cannot be mistaken.
c. Desire, turned on until it becomes burning desire that will not be denied.
d. Faith in the ultimate achievement of your purpose. This faith must be so strong that you can already see yourself in possession of the object of your definite major purpose.
e. Will-power, applied continuously, in full force, in support of faith.
f. The subconscious mind picks up the picture conveyed to it by the foregoing factors and carries it to its logical conclusion by whatever practical means may be available, according to the nature of your purpose.

The Little Book of Leadership

Napoleon Hill’s Cookbook for Life

by Napoleon Hill and
and Judith Williamson

This cookbook is meant to be fun and innovative as well as educational. It is a crossover book that serves two purposes: 1) to give the reader immediate access to the wholesome wisdom of Napoleon Hill and his Philosophy of Success, and 2) to share testimonials and favorite recipes of individuals who have used Dr. Hill’s system to enhance all aspects of their lives. The men and women who appear in this Cookbook for Life have experienced many or all of the 17 Success Principles, and have benefited from them. These are ordinary people who, because of their firm belief, persistence, and creativity have done great things with their lives. They are not the type to sit back and whittle away their time watching the world go by without their input. They are doers and creators of their universe. Their testimonials and recipes ring true because they are written in their own words and directly from their own hearts. The old adage reminds us that “the proof is in the pudding.” Our recipe contributors are certainly a “proven” commodity that you can personally use as a touchstone, guiding light, or signpost to your success.

Believe and Achieve

by W. Clement Stone

In 1952, W. Clement Stone and Napoleon Hill joined forces and philosophies. Stone added his Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) concept to Hill’s principles, resulting in the classic book, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. The two men spent the next 10 years writing and lecturing about the story of success through PMA. Their formula was to become the foundation for virtually all modern motivational writing. Believe and Achieve explains exactly how the personal, intellectual, attitudinal, fraternal, and spiritual principles used by the likes of Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, and F. W. Woolworth—as well as modern achievers like Tom Monaghan, Mary Kay Ash, Larry King, and Steve Jobs—Believe & Achieve can be applied by you to reach your goals.

Believe and Achieve is not the last word on creating success; that story will continue to evolve as long as the human race endures. Instead, the Napoleon Hill Foundation hopes that it will be nothing more than the first words in the next chapter of your life: the first of many chapters in which success is the theme.
