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

Dear Readers,

In 1937, when Napoleon Hill published Think and Grow Rich, he described the power of the Master Mind as the driving force toward riches. He also defined the Master Mind as the collaboration of knowledge and effort in a spirit of harmony between two or more people for the attainment of a Definite Purpose.

A Master Mind is often composed of many individuals and a group leader is essential to have an efficient meeting. It is the Master Mind leader who is responsible for ensuring that individuals are a good fit for the group and will be able to blend in a spirit of friendliness and harmony.

One example of the Master Mind that Napoleon Hill wrote about was Andrew Carnegie, who had very little formal education but selected knowledgeable individuals for his Master Mind. This group of men later went on to develop one of the most successful steel corporations in the United States.

Carnegie selected the best people he could find who had the various skills necessary to manufacture steel. Some of these positions were lawyers, chemists, and marketers. Though Carnegie did not have the skills necessary himself, he used the Master Mind principle to achieve his definite major purpose.

Additionally, Henry Ford, used the Master Mind principles in the automobile industry. Ford, like Carnegie, had very little formal education. He relied on men who had the knowledge that he did not in order to obtain his place in history.

I have used the Master Mind principle in my own business ventures such as banking, cable television, dry cleaning businesses, land development and others. My business partners and I could never have achieved our level of success on our own. We combined our resources and talents that helped accomplish our goals.

The values of a Master Mind cannot be overstated.


I wish you the best,
Don Green

The Law of Success

The Master Mind
by Napoleon Hill

This brings us to the second of the five essentials of success, known as the Master Mind principle. It consists simply of an alliance of two or more persons who coordinate their efforts in a spirit of perfect harmony for the attainment of a definite purpose.

It was Andrew Carnegie who first introduced me to this principle when I asked him to describe the means by which he had accumulated his great fortune. He answered frankly that it came through the efforts of other men—the men who belong to his Master Mind group. Then, one by one, he named the members of the group and what each contributed to its success.

Carnegie made clear to me that while any individual can achieve success, far greater success can be achieved through a group working in perfect harmony so that their talents, education, and personalities complement one another.

The Declaration of Independence was created by the most profound Master Mind alliance this nation has ever known. It consisted of the fifty-six brave men who signed the document, knowing that they were risking both their lives and their fortunes. Here was perfect harmony at its highest level—and its results have, to a large extent, changed the destiny of the entire human race.

There are three points of contact at which I urge you to relate yourself with others on the Master Mind basis: in your home, in your church, and in your place of occupation or business. Do this faithfully and you will have gone a long way toward ensuring your prosperity, peace of mind, and sound health.

Time and again I have seen how the Master Mind alliance—the group working in harmony—produces astounding results.

Could one man, for example, ever have accomplished the scientific work that resulted in the production of atomic power? Never! Each of us can accomplish only so much in a single lifetime. But by working in a harmony with others toward a single goal, results that normally would take centuries can be achieved in a relatively short time.

The Banner of Success
by Jim Stovall


Each of us is born with unlimited potential and unlimited options. As infants, we are quite certain that the entire universe revolves around us. Things are only important as they impact or relate to our lives. It’s almost as if we were born with a banner that proclaims I’m lovable; I’m capable, and I’m able to do anything I set my mind to.

As time goes on, we make the mistake of allowing other people to write things on our banner. And they will write things such as you’re ugly; you’re stupid, or you will never amount to anything.

By the time we are through with our education and ready to commence with our lives, we are so burdened down with graffiti on our banner that the original message is often totally obscured.

No one can write on your your banner or put a message into your mind that you will not accept. But in our own inadequacy, we often accept criticism from everyone and praise from no one. When people around us who know us well tell us we are special or valuable, we too often minimize this by simply stating I’m lucky or I’m really not that great. On the other hand, when a total stranger is rude or inconsiderate to us, we have a tendency to embrace their venom as something we deserve and embody.

Please remember that you were born lovable, capable, and able to do anything you set your mind to. Any other messages that you carry around with you are messages that you allowed someone else to write on your banner. Some of us need to begin to use the biggest mental eraser we can find in order to reveal the simplicity of the original message.

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.

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.
