Do not expect something for nothing. Be willing to give an equivalent value for all that you desire, and include in your plans a definite provision for doing so. –Napoleon Hill

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

Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
~Sir Winston Churchill

Dear Readers:

During children’s early years they have many imaginary adventures. These pretend happenings are enthusiastically embraced and can even develop into imaginary friends, imaginary tales of adventure, and imaginary journeys that place the child in the role of the main character or hero of the tale. These flights of fancy permit a youngster to wander into many different landscapes that would never occur in everyday life.

Opportunities to develop enthusiasm and even uncontrolled enthusiasm encourage boys and girls to try on different roles that may be eventually abandoned or hold lasting appeal for a latter day career choice.

How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and illustrated by David Shannon is an adventure on the high seas as imagined by Jeremy Jacob. While on a holiday with his family, Jeremy sees a pirate ship in the distance and then encounters the pirates in person as they row to shore. Looking for the Spanish Main the pirates take a wrong turn and end up at North Beach. Needing a mate to bury their treasure, they add a willing Jeremy to their crew and haul him aboard. Jeremy is agreeable to the enlistment, as long as he is back for soccer practice the next day.

The story develops as Jeremy imagines the daily lives of the pirates in detail, but around bedtime Jeremy is missing his usual good night kiss, a good night story, and is lonesome for his parents. The tide literally turns as a storm develops, and Jeremy sees pirate life through enlightened eyes. It is decided that the treasure needs to be buried before the pirate ship can turn back to safety. Fortunately, Jeremy offers a practical solution and is able to return home with the treasure that he buries in his backyard. All the while, Jeremy learns through imaginary experience that a pirate’s life can have both positive and negative aspects!

Think back and reimagine some of your childhood adventures. Did any turn out to embrace the career that you now hold as an adult? I bet in most cases parallels between what you enthusiastically imagined and what you are today have some similarities. So, in review, play aids in predetermining our outcomes. Play approached with enthusiasm allows children to try on certain roles before committing to these roles in reality. Play with enthusiasm can forecast what takes place in a child’s future development. Take time today to encourage someone to develop the magic of enthusiastic play within and magic will surely happen for all to see on the outside too.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


Attract Happiness and Good Fortune
by Napoleon Hill

Remember, every person lives in two worlds: the world of his own mental attitude, which is greatly influenced by his associates and his surroundings, and the physical world in which he must struggle for a living. The physical world in which you make a living may be beyond your control, but you can, to a great extent, shape the circumstances of your immediate physical world. It can be done by the way you relate yourself to your mental world, for your mental attitude attracts to you those aspects of the physical world which harmonize with your mental attitude. Thus, pessimism will attract misery and ill fortune. But enthusiasm, properly controlled, will attract happiness and good fortune.

Enthusiasm is a great leavening force in your mental world, for it gives power to your purpose. It helps to free your mind of negative influences and brings you peace of mind. It wakens your imagination and stirs you to shape the circumstances of your physical world to meet your own needs.

But no amount of enthusiasm can replace definiteness of purpose. A man without a definite major purpose resembles a locomotive without a track to run on, or a destination toward which to travel. And if he lacks enthusiasm to back his definite major purpose, he is like a locomotive without fuel.

Enthusiasm may be expressed in two ways: passively, through the stimulation of emotional feeling which inspires you to meditate and think in silence; and actively, by the expression of such feeling through words and deeds.

The Little Book of Leadership

Patterns for Inhabiting Success
book and cards

Introduction by Dr. J.B. Hill
Forward and Compilation by Judith Williamson

Success is best understood as a series of related habits which are deliberate actions taken over time that because of repetition become rote. Once these success habits become rote they perform right on schedule for us because they have become a downloaded pattern housed in our subconscious mind. Once entrenched in our subconscious mind, these routine habits have the determination and persistence of weeds, but conversely these now deliberatively cultivated habits are higher functioning and productive. They are the children of our thoughts, and they are intentionally placed inside our inner psyche to produce offspring that complement who we are and what we still intend to become. What more marvelous gift could anyone other than a benevolent God give to His children? Once the key is found to this Treasure Chest, all the goodness of the universe will be ours for the asking. The simple directive – Knock – Seek – Ask – has always been there for us!

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judith Williamson, Director Napoleon Hill World Learning Center Purdue University Calumet

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.
