“Any business whose management has the foresight to adopt a policy which consolidates management, employees and the public it serves in a spirit of team work, provides itself with an insurance policy against failure.” ~Napoleon Hill

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

Dear Readers,

Do you have a hard time saying NO? If so, you are not alone. I believe that most people have this problem and feel it is easier to simply say yes. However, saying NO is not necessarily a bad thing. For instance, if you say NO to a certain task or club membership, this will allow you to exert more time and energy on the goals you truly wish to accomplish.

On most days, we let ourselves become bombarded with communication that may or may not be good for us. Telephone calls are a great way to accomplish the tasks you need to complete in any given day. However, sales calls, surveys, and other telephone calls can consume all of your time, and nothing gets done. It is best to say NO to these calls and move on to something else.

Try to remember that someone who steals your money has only taken a physical asset. You can always earn more money. But, if someone steals your time, you can never get that back. It is important to say yes and take risks, but it is just as important to learn to say NO when it is necessary.


I wish you the best,
Don Green
Executive Director Napoleon Hill Foundation

The Law of Success


by Napoleon Hill

All of us have a single denominator in our fight for success. All of us have an equal amount of time in which to achieve it. Simple rules of health demand that eight hours of every day be spent in sleep. Eight hours more taken up in earning at least the bare necessities of life. That leaves us eight hours more of free time that can be used for whatever purpose we desire.

This is the period you can use to achieve success. Since you work so hard eight hours for the boss, why not put in a few hours more working for yourself instead of spending it idly? Benjamin Franklin once said, “Show me what a man does with his free time and I will tell you accurately whether he will be a success or failure in life.”

The man or woman who doesn’t need to hold down a regular job is doubly blessed for they have twice as much time to devote to their own ends.

Richard Monot found himself in that position. For more than a year, he spent his days in idleness and found–as so many have–that it really isn’t fun to loaf continually. Being a lover of flowers, he bought a tract of land and began growing peonies. His gardens soon became a showplace. More important, they began making more money for him than he’d ever been able to earn in his regular work-hour labors.

You should constantly try to “go the extra mile” during the period of the day the boss pays for your service. This brings promotions and pay raises. But it’s even more important that you go the extra mile for yourself during your free time. How are you spending these hours now? Do you fritter them away or do you use them to achieve success?

First, of course, you must decide upon a definite goal in life and lay out a plan for achieving it. Then use your free time to put your plan into action. Remember, whenever you waste time, you are wasting your life.

The Opinion that Counts
by Jim Stovall

We always live up to the expectations that we have for our lives. Sometimes, these expectations are those we have of ourselves, but too often these are expectations that we allow other people to place upon us. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves winning someone else’s battle while we lose our own war.

For years, societal pressure and the media have encouraged us to keep up with the Joneses. Unless your last name is Jones, there is no practical or logical reason you should set your standards based on theirs.

After many of my speaking engagements, I have the opportunity to meet with people one-on-one about their career and life goals. Too often, these seem to be pre-packaged, cookie-cutter goals that we have all been sold. Sometimes, it’s necessary to get away from all of the external input and pressure to simply reflect on “what is really important to me in my life.”

Assume that money, time, education, and other factors do not enter into your life goals. We all know that eventually these factors do count, but it is important that we not get the “How are we going to do it?” mixed up in the “What are we going to do?” decision.

We spend so much of our time, effort, and energy trying to ensure that others will think the best of us. I don’t think we would worry near as much about what other people thought of us if we realized how seldom they actually do think of us.

The way to build a great life is simply to string together a series of great days. A great day can be defined as one in which, as you put your head on the pillow, you can reflect back on your day’s activities and be satisfied. Ideally, you are not only satisfied with how well you did in pursuing your goal, but you are deeply satisfied that you are pursuing the right goal.

Make a commitment to pursue the things that really matter to you and your family. Let the rest of the world try to keep up with the Joneses, whoever they may be.

Today’s the day!

The Little Book of Leadership



by Napoleon Hill

In this lost classic, the pioneering motivational coach teaches how to make the crucial leap from faith to action in bringing your dreams to life.

Believe in yourself…Have faith. We often hear these expressions. But faith is not enough. We need Applied Faith. In three hard-hitting chapters, motivational master Napoleon Hill teaches you how to transform belief to action, and faith into real-life plans.

Application. Enthusiasm. Action. These are the three keys required to do more than just “believe in yourself”–but to actually BE the person you want to be.

Wishes Won’t Bring Riches provides you with the missing link necessary to go from visualizing your dreams to living them.

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.
