Around the World with Napoleon Hill: Self-Discipline

In 1922, Napoleon Hill gave the graduation address to the students at Salem University in Salem, West Virginia. This speech inspired the 1937 publication of the best-selling self-help book of all time, Think and Grow Rich. This is the self-help book that most motivational speakers and authors use as a guide.

In 1957, Napoleon Hill returned to Salem University to again deliver the graduation address. On this date, Napoleon Hill was awarded an honorary doctorate degree. Hill’s speech was titled Five Essentials of Success. Napoleon Hill’s speech featured the five principles he considered essential to a person’s success and self-discipline was one of them. Napoleon Hill spent a lifetime studying why some people are successful and why most others are not. It is a simple fact that you either learn to develop and maintain self-discipline or expect to be disciplined by others.

Napoleon Hill once wrote, “I am convinced that no lesson which my life’s experience has taught me, has been more costly than the one I learned by eternally exacting my ‘pound of flesh’ and feeling in my duty to resent every insult and every injustice.”

I am thoroughly convinced that one of the greatest lessons a man can learn is self-control. One can never exercise any amount of influence over others until they first learn to exercise control over himself or herself. Self-discipline is what connects all your efforts with your personal initiative, positive mental attitude, and controlled enthusiasm. Self-discipline once put into practice causes a person to think before they act. Always remember “Either discipline yourself or expect to be controlled by others.”


I wish you the best,

The Law of Success

by Napoleon Hill

The fourth essential for success is Self-Discipline. That means mastery of self over both the mental faculties and the physical body. Self-discipline begins with a burning desire to become the master of one’s self. The motivation necessary to keep that desire alert and active is recognition of the fact that when one becomes master of himself, he may become the master over many things—including the failures and defeats and problems that we encounter along the way.

Another inspiring motive that should keep the burning desire for self-mastery alive is recognition of the true significance of the gift from the Creator of one’s unchallengeable right to control and direct his own mind.

Milo C. Jones worked a small farm near Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. His hours were long, the work was hard, and every member of his family had to help in order to make ends meet.

Then disaster struck. Milo was stricken down by double paralysis and totally deprived of the use of his body. His farming days were over forever.

His family rolled him out in a wheelchair on the porch each day, where he sat in the sun while other members of the family carried on with the farm work.

One morning, some three weeks after he was stricken, he made a stupendous discovery. He discovered that he had a mind.

Inasmuch as his mind was the only thing he had left with which he could exercise any sort of discipline, he began to put it to work. As a result, he came up with an idea that brought him and his family happiness and wealth.

Calling his family around him, he said, “I want you to plant every acre of our land in corn. Start raising hogs on this corn, and while they are still young and tender, slaughter them and make them into ‘Little Pig Sausage.’”

“Little Pig Sausage” became a household word all over America, and Milo C. Jones lived to see his brainchild make him a very rich man. Although he learned very late, he made the discovery that I trust each of you young people will make early in your career: he discovered that there are no limitations to the power of the mind except those which one sets up for himself through doubts, fears, and lack of ambition or definiteness of purpose.

Your first duty in forming the habit of self-discipline is to try to win full and complete control of your own mind and direct it to definite objectives from which you may gain wisdom as well as material and spiritual prosperity.

Then you will need discipline over the emotion of anger. This you can attain by recognizing that no one can make you angry without your full consent and cooperation. You do not need to give that cooperation.

You will need discipline over your sex emotions, by learning the art of transmuting this profound creative force into channels that will aid you in the calling you have chosen.

You will need discipline over your tone of voice so as to make it gentle, yet convincing.

You will need discipline over everything you take into your physical body in the form of food, and drink, and drugs, and alcohol, and smokes. Remember, your body is God’s temple, given you as a house for the protection of your mind and soul.

You will need discipline over your choice of personal associates.

You will need discipline over your thought habits, by keeping your mind busily occupied in thinking and planning for the things and circumstances you desire and off of those you do not desire.

You will need discipline to avoid procrastination.

You will need discipline over the emotion of love. If you love without your love being returned, be satisfied that you are the one who has gained most because the expression of love has added refinements to your soul. Therefore, don’t waste time over unrequited love—and perish the idea that one can love but once.

You will need to discipline yourself to recognize that whatever happens to you, be it good or bad, most likely had its cause somewhere within you—either by your thoughts, deeds, or your neglect to act.

This is quite an order that I have given you.

But you can fill it if you are interested enough in your future to do so. By the time you will have filled this order you will know yourself, your potentials for success, your weaknesses, and your strengths. And you will be in a position to make the most of the prerogative your Creator has given you to control both your mind and your body.

Experience Life
by Jim Stovall


How often do you hear someone—maybe yourself—respond “I’ve always wanted to do that” after someone else shares about a trip or an experience they have just enjoyed? Think of all the things you have always intended to do. Maybe it’s to visit an old friend or classmate. Maybe it’s an exotic trip, or maybe it’s as simple as going to a museum or a show right in your hometown.

There is a dinner theatre in my hometown that has been performing the same show for decades. Whenever I hear anyone mention that particular production, I hear one of two responses—either “I have been to that” or “I have always wanted to do that.”

We seem to have no trouble planning our professional lives. Our work is usually governed by a calendar or a schedule that ensures we get everything done that we intend to do. We have a plan to make a living. The question we need to examine is “Do we have a plan for living our lives?” The reason we plan our work is because we know that a task not scheduled rarely, if ever, gets completed. The same is true in our personal lives. If you don’t schedule your vacations, your recreational activities, and your cultural or self-improvement times, they will simply slide to another year and another year and so on.

Think of all the things you have been intending to do for five or ten years or maybe even longer. The very thought of these things signals to us subconsciously that we are not getting all we want out of this life. I would encourage you to get at least as serious about how you live your life as the way you make a living. Start a list of all the things you’ve ever wanted to do. This list will, quite likely, be very long and will never be completed. You will always be adding things to your “life list.”

Schedule a time weekly or at least monthly to review your list, and commit to adding one or more of the items from your list to your daily calendar. You will be amazed how the quality of your life will improve and how the time to enjoy the things in this life that are important to you will somehow materialize.

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.
