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

Dear Readers:

Blessings in life seem to occur spontaneously at opportune moments in time. When received, they lighten our load, make our eyes sparkle, tickle our fancy, and bring spontaneous joy to our hearts. Blessings, happenstances, coincidences, synchronicities and grace all find us at certain spots in our lives, but if we pay attention these affirmative mental taps should not leave us where they found us.

Thought habits create the connecting links to the favorable circumstances that occur in seemingly miraculous ways. In our environment, plans are carried out in perfectly natural ways according to the laws of cosmic habitforce. Dr. Hill states that there are no inexplicable miracles in this universe, just natural outcomes of the building blocks of time, space, energy, matter and intelligence that nature uses as She creates all things. When occurrences appear miraculous, Nature is at work creating and manifesting something that we as humans do not yet fully understand. This is Infinite Intelligence utilizing cosmic habitforce to make things happen that at this point in time may appear miraculous.

In his book, You Can Work Your Own Miracles, Napoleon Hill discusses this process in depth. He believes that miracles are natural occurrences that we do not yet fully comprehend given our current knowledge. That is why you can begin to learn the process of creating miraculous outcomes by studying the process that occurs via cosmic habitforce.

By using the gifts that we are given at birth, our time (lifespan), the space we occupy (physical location), our physical characteristics (personality + body) and natural intelligence (IQ + Spirit), we are the microcosm (body+mind+spirit) that can emulate the macrocosm (Infinite Intelligence manifested in Cosmic Habitforce) in order to achieve our picture perfect end result.

Here’s the process broken down:

Time:             When we utilize our gift of time (lifespan)
Energy:          as expressed through our daily actions (activities)
Intelligence:   employing our natural talents and abilities gifted at                       birth (rewards)
Matter:           right where we are for positive end results                       (positive outcomes)
Space:           that benefit not only ourselves but others,                       (outcomes for universal good)

=                    EQUALS

Miraculous:   we become an instrument of the Divine (tool) in much the same way that an acorn grows into a giant oak, a pine nut soars to become the tallest of pine trees, and seeds of wheat grow to feed entire populations.

Our seeds of talent can do the same amazing things if we plant, nurture, and harvest them properly according to the laws of cosmic habitforce. By applying the principles, you will reap your best intended harvest because happen it must both for your good and the good of others.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


How to Convert a Positive Desire into its
Physical Equivalent
by Napoleon Hill

How does cosmic habitforce convert a positive emotion or desire created in the mind of man into its physical equivalent? It intensifies that emotion or desire until it induces the state of mind known as faith. In this state the mind becomes receptive to the inflow of Infinite Intelligence from whence are derived perfect plans to be followed by the individual for the attainment of his desired objective. These plans are always carried out by natural means.

Cosmic habitforce does not directly transmute desires for money into the coin of the realm, but it does activate the imagination to reveal to the individual a way to make the conversion through accepted procedure. This force works no miracles, makes no attempt to create something out of nothing. It helps, or rather — compels, the creator of a strong desire to carry his thoughts to completion through all possible and available natural media.

Often a person is awed by what appears to be coincidental combinations of favorable circumstances as he carries out his plans, but these strange and unexplained things happen in a perfectly natural way. Cosmic habitforce impacts a peculiar quality to your thought habits which gives you power to surmount all difficulties, remove all obstacles, overcome all resistances. Just what this power is, is a secret as profound as the secret which causes a seed of wheat to germinate, grow and reproduce itself, handing back to the farmer a hundredfold measure for his intelligent effort. You do not need to know how it works to follow the simple rules given to you for utilizing it in your affairs of life.

Lyrics to Before the Parade Passes By
from the musical Hello, Dolly!

The wonderful thing about life is that we can all begin again with the time we have left to live. There is no stopping our opportunities to live and to change and to grow and to prosper and to develop and to learn and to touch someone during our lifetime until our time runs out. Like an hour glass, we must use the grains of time that we are given before they are depleted. Take an opportunity today to get a goal and reinvigorate that youthful drive that propelled you in the past. It may be buried, but not so deeply that it can’t be excavated, cleaned off, admired, and polished up for today’s use. See what beauty still exists in you and get busy fixing up your buried treasures! ~ Judy Williamson


Before the parade passes by
Before it goes on, and only I’m left
Before the parade passes by
I’ve gotta get in step while there’s still time left
I’m ready to move out in front
Life without life has no reason or rhyme left
With the rest of them
With the best of them
I wanna hold my head up high
I need a goal again
I need a drive again
I wanna feel my heart coming alive again
Before the parade passes by…
Before the parade passes by
I’ve gotta go and taste Saturday’s high life
Before the parade passes by
I’ve gotta get some life back into my life
I’m ready to move out in front
I’ve had enough of just passing by life
With the rest of them
With the best of them
I can hold my head up high
For I’ve got a goal again
I’ve got a drive again
I wanna feel my heart coming alive again
Before the parade passes by


When the parade passes by
Listen and hear that brass harmony growing
When the parade passes by
Pardon me if my old spirit is showing
All of those lights over there
Seem to be telling me where I’m going

When the whistles blow
And the cymbals crash
And the sparklers light the sky
I’m gonna raise the roof
I’m gonna carry on
Give me an old trombone
Give me an old baton
Before the parade passes by!

The Little Book of Leadership

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.

Napoleon Hill often reminds us that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. This book offers you, the student, an extravaganza of teachers, guides for your journey, perhaps soul mates, who are certain that they have uncovered and applied the secret in Think and Grow Rich in their lives. Not only that, but they have greatly improved their lives due to their reading and application of this profound book. In concluding his book, Napoleon Hill quotes Emerson as he states: “If we are related, we have, through these pages, met.” Likewise, if you are a sincere seeker of the secret that Dr. Hill promises to deliver in his book, you will find the people in Path to Riches as family who will guide you in the direction of your search. Each contributor has given freely without compensation of their time and talent to aid you in your search for the truth. Each has gone the extra mile to contribute the “secret” that they uncovered in the hope that it will serve as a signpost for you as you travel towards life’s riches. May you have a special relationship with our contributors and remember to thank the ones in particular who helped your uncover the secret to your success!
