You may be asking yourself, “What exactly is Accurate Thinking?” When I was studying Napoleon Hill’s Science of Success and got to the 10th principle, that’s exactly what I was thinking. Sounds easy, but what is it? What does it have to do with me-or you? How does this apply to our lives? What does it mean? Well, here’s how Napoleon Hill described Accurate Thinking.
According to Andrew Carnegie, there are two types of people in the world who will never amount to anything. The first is the one who will give only what is asked for or demanded to get a job done. The second is the person who cannot even do what is required to get the job done. In my opinion, there is a third type of person who will have great difficulty achieving anything of lasting importance to themselves, or anyone else - that is the person who does not use good judgment or common sense when practicing personal initiative. Just as personal initiative, performed with logic and common sense will place a person ahead of the crowd, when practiced with poor judgment and a lack of discretion, personal initiative can be a dangerous, even destructive force.

I have associated with the Napoleon Foundation since 2003 and this has been best thing I have ever done for my life both physically and spiritually. I began attending the free - community classes that were offered at the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center located at Purdue University Northwest where Judith Williamson and Uriel Martinez taught the seventeen principles of success. I was so intrigued by the information that I decided to return as often as it was offered, so I returned 7 more times.
Often in life it’s a really good idea to “Go the Extra Mile” and sometimes a little more is required of us -- to be bolder and maybe even a bit louder. Being a leader is what most people dream of becoming. But it is more than being the center of the group, the loudest mouth or even the boss....
Dr. Hill's famous quote, "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve" is often misunderstood. On the surface, what he wrote is nothing extraordinary and is simple common sense. If you can conceive of an idea, and believe that you can make it happen, then you will be able to take the steps necessary to carry out your plan to actualize the goal/idea you have.
What if every time adversity and defeat showed up in our life ... we could change it? You can.... Napoleon Hill has such a great way of helping us embrace and change our view of whatever is happening in our life at any given moment.
