It is because we sincerely feel that every reader of Think and Grow Rich should go on into this post graduate course, that we take the liberty here of giving a few brief side lights upon this brilliant work. Napoleon Hill’s Course presents the true Philosophy upon which all lasting success is built. Ideas, when translated into intelligent plans of action, are the beginning of all successful achievement. So this course proceeds to show you how to create practical ideas for every human need. It does it in easy-to-understand lessons. Napoleon Hill spent the better part of twenty-five years in perfecting this Philosophy of Success. During the long years he has worked on it, some parts or the whole of it, have been reviewed and praised by many of the greatest Americans of our times. Among them are included four Presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Warren G. Harding, Wm. H. Taft; Thomas Edison, Luther Burbank, Wm. J. Wrigley, Alexander Graham Bell, Judge E. H. Gary, Cyrus H. K. Curtis, Edward Bok, E.M. Statler—dozens of glowing names in Politics, Finance, Education, and Invention.

Don’t waste your own precious years blindly searching for the hidden road to the heights. Profit by the dearly brought experience of America’s leaders. Over 500 great and prominent men of America were minutely analyzed—their methods, motives, strategy—to find out the secrets that put them on top. No matter whether you are rich or poor—you have one asset as great as the richest man living—and that is TIME. But with each setting sun you become one day older, and have one day less in which to attain the success and wealth you desire. Thousands of progressive people throughout the North American continent have realized this mighty truth, and have sought the help so clearly and inspiringly taught in Napoleon Hill. You cannot afford to let day after day slip into eternity, without getting possession of this course. You will profit greatly from the lessons in THINK AND GROW RICH. You will take even more brilliant and gratifying rewards from this course. The cost is trifling; the benefits are tremendous.

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

Dear Readers,

Over my lifetime, I have read many books and would not trade the knowledge I have learned from these books for anything in the world. I recently read a book called Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World by Howard Graham Buffett. I read the book because of my admiration for Howard’s father, Mr. Warren Buffett.

Forty Chances is composed of forty different stories that Howard encountered because of his love for photography. Through his photography, Mr. Buffett was exposed to many instances of poverty and malnutrition that would be hard for us to even imagine. Millions of people all over the world die from starvation, and most of these people are young children.

One story that I found interesting in Forty Chances was about the relationship between Howard and his parents. We all have heard of what happens with the children of wealthy people. Many of these children are not as successful as their parents, however, Howard Buffett is an exception.

As a child, Howard Buffett developed a passion for toy trucks which led him to a passion for heavy equipment as an adult. He later pursued a career in farming where he enjoyed operating various tractors and combines.

Combining his love of farming with his passion for photography, Howard began to travel the world and documented true hunger in a different light. He decided to find a solution for the hunger problem by taking a different approach than most people. His experience as a farmer and as an employee of Archer Daniels Midland, allowed him to teach farming methods in many parts of the world. Instead of simply giving away food to the hungry, he empowered them to grow and produce their own food.

The book Forty Chances helps to show that anyone, regardless of circumstances at birth, can take a simple passion and use it to make the world a better place in which to live.


I wish you the best in all that you do, 
Don Green
Executive Director Napoleon Hill Foundation

The Law of Success


by Napoleon Hill

The depression brought the world to the very border-line of understanding of the forces which are intangible and unseen. Through the ages which have passed, man has depended too much upon his physical senses, and has limited his knowledge to physical things, which he could see, touch, weigh, and measure.

We are now entering the most marvelous of all ages—an age which will teach us something of the intangible forces of the world about us. Perhaps we shall learn, as we pass through this age, that the “other self” is more powerful than the physical self we see when we look into a mirror.

Sometimes men speak lightly of the intangibles— the things which they cannot perceive through any of their five senses, and when we hear them, it should remind us that all of us are controlled by forces which are unseen and intangible.

The whole of mankind has not the power to cope with, nor to control the intangible force wrapped up in the rolling waves of the oceans. Man has not the capacity to understand the intangible force of gravity, which keeps this little earth suspended in mid-air, and keeps man from falling from it, much less the power to control that force. Man is entirely subservient to the intangible force which comes with a thunder storm, and he is just as helpless in the presence of the intangible force of electricity—nay, he does not even know what electricity is, where it comes from, or what is its purpose!

Nor is this by any means the end of man’s ignorance in connection with things unseen and intangible. He does not understand the intangible force (and intelligence) wrapped up in the soil of the earth—the force which provides him with every morsel of food he eats, every article of clothing he wears, every dollar he carries in his pockets.

TODAY I shall do so much in the years to come,

But what have I done today?

I shall give out gold in princely sum,

But what did I give today?

I shall lift the heart and dry the tear

I shall plant a hope in the place of fear

I shall speak with words of love and cheer,

But what have I done today?

I shall bring to each lonely life a smile

But give to truth a greater birth

And to steadfast faith a deeper worth,

I shall feed the hungering souls of earth,

But whom have I fed today?

The Lack of Lottery Logic
by Jim Stovall

There are few ideas more interesting or thoughts more compelling than instant wealth. Becoming an overnight millionaire and going from rags to riches is the unfulfilled dream of most people.

If you are a regular reader of Winners’ Wisdom columns, you have observed me picking on the lottery and casinos before. My argument is not as much moral and ethical as it is an argument of finances and focus. I have no real objection to someone who wants to buy an occasional lottery ticket for entertainment purposes as long as they are out of debt, and the lottery ticket money doesn’t take food off the family table. I’ve never found anything particularly entertaining, myself, about spending hard-earned money on the immensely overwhelming probability of losing, but if others find pleasure in it, it’s okay with me.

My objection is to the millions of people around the world who spend money their family cannot afford to lose on lottery tickets. This destroys people, potential, and possibilities in several ways. If the average person who consistently plays the lottery and buys tickets in amounts that equal the national average would simply invest the same amount of money each week in an average growth-stock mutual fund, they would be millionaires within 20 years. So it’s not just the loss of the money spent on losing tickets. It’s the loss of the potential they are flushing away a few dollars at a time.

David J. Hand, author of The Improbability Principle, says, “1,167,843 years (or 15 thousand lifetimes) is how long you’d have to play Powerball to have a 50/50 chance of winning a jackpot.” I believe your hard-earned money, your family’s future, and all of your hopes and dreams deserve better odds than this.

The idea of getting rich quick is a pipedream that robs your resources and your possibilities. Creating a wealth plan provides a certainty over time of financial freedom and success.

The index of the entire stock market has averaged nearly 12 percent compounded over the last half of a century, while the lottery requires you to throw away your hard-earned money consistently for more than a million years for an even chance of winning. If the logic and numbers don’t make it clear to you, stay tuned, because I’m sure I will write about it again as I know the casinos and lotteries are going to continue to share their propaganda.

As you go through your day today, invest logically, and get the odds in your favor.

Today’s the day!

Jim Stovall

The Path to Personal Power

by Napoleon Hill

This true lost manuscript from the “grandfather of self-help,” Napoleon Hill provides timeless wisdom on how to attain a more successful and wealthy life using simple principles.

Napoleon Hill first wrote The Path to Personal Power in 1941, intending it as a handbook for people lifting themselves out of the Great Depression. But upon the bombing of Pearl Harbor and America’s entrance into World War II, these lessons were put aside and largely forgotten–until today.

Discovered in the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, this never-before-published work is made up of three easily digested lessons, each its own chapter: Definiteness of Purpose; the Master Mind; and Going the Extra Mile.

This concise book is a powerful road map that leads to a single discovery–you already have the power to attain whatever wealth, success, and prosperity you desire in life. All you need to do is walk the path without straying, and the rest will follow.

Using these lessons, you have principles to live by that will help you stay on your own personal path to power, and achieve success that you never thought possible.
