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

Dear Readers,

When Napoleon Hill wrote about going the extra mile, he stated that it was a success principle that could be applied without asking permission from others. We can most assuredly say the same thing about PERSONAL INITIATIVE.

Napoleon Hill quoted Andrew Carnegie when he said, “There are two types of people who never amount to anything. These people are those who never do what they are told and those people who never do anything except what they are told.” The people who are most successful and get ahead in life are those who perform the tasks that need to be done, without being told to do so.

Personal Initiative and going the extra mile go hand in hand, and personal initiative is absolutely necessary if you want to reach your goals. Some of the attributes of personal initiative are:

  • Adoption of a definite major purpose
  • Self-discipline
  • Persistence
  • Imagination
  • Prompt Decision Making

Personal initiative is often contagious and helps create opportunities. Don’t wait for others to push you into action—act on your own initiative and you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts.


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

The Law of Success

by Napoleon Hill

“In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.” ~HENRY WARD BEECHER

One rainy afternoon an elderly lady walked through the revolving door of a Pittsburgh department store. As she walked up the aisle several clerks turned their backs and pretended to be busy with their stock, thinking that she was a mere looker. But one young clerk spoke to her pleasantly and offered to be of assistance. The lady explained, “Oh, I’m just waiting for the rain to let up.”

“Very well,” said the young man, “May I bring a chair for you?” He secured a chair from behind the counter and offered it to the lady. When the rain had subsided, he took the lady by the arm and escorted her outside. As she left him, she asked for his card.

A few months later the owner of the store received a letter asking that this young man be sent to Scotland to take orders for furnishing a castle. The owner replied that this young man did not work in the home furnishing department, but that they would gladly send an expert. The old lady wrote back and insisted on having the young man who had been so courteous to her. Naturally, he was allowed to go, and he received orders for several hundred thousand dollars’ worth of merchandise. The old lady was Andrew Carnegie’s mother, who was planning to furnish Skibo Castle in Scotland.

Because of this incident, the young man was made a partner in a great Pittsburgh store, with an assured future in a profitable business. The important part of the story is that he was not paid to go out of his way to be courteous to old ladies. No one told him to do it. He did it entirely on his own initiative. Yet the ten minutes he voluntarily devoted to this courtesy was responsible for his obtaining a partnership in a great business. It can be truthfully said that those ten minutes of free service paid him more than all the paid service he had rendered before in his entire life. And it made him economically independent for the rest of his life. You see once again how the law of increasing returns works for those who go the extra mile.

Keeping On-Course
by Jim Stovall


There comes a time in everyone’s life when you become extremely frustrated with your progress toward your goal. There are days when you seem to be making incredible strides, and nothing can stop you. Then, there are those days when your best efforts seem to take you nowhere. That is the time to “stay the course.”

Farmers know what it’s like to plant a seed and see no progress for weeks at a time. Then, all of a sudden, a plant pops up through the soil, and hope is renewed. Sailors know what it’s like to stare at the distant horizon for days on end with no apparent progress. Then, without warning, land is spotted, and the destination looms ahead.

Each of us has this same dilemma to face on a daily basis; however, unlike the farmer who knows the crop will grow because it did last year and the sailor who knows his voyage is at an end because he has been this way before, you and I have no tangible landmarks.

Sometimes the only points we have are our starting point and our destination. We don’t get a report in the mail saying, “You are now halfway toward your goal.” The wonderful thing about our life goals is that while progress seems to be delayed or non-existent, your efforts are causing things to work behind the scenes that will allow you a quantum leap toward your destiny.

Remember all the times in your life when things were not coming together, but you kept on trying. Then, out of nowhere, you meet the key person, discover the missing element, or find the shortcut you have been looking for. Those magical moments happen only when you “stay the course.”

You are closer than you think to success. Just like the farmer who has planted the seed or the sailor who has started his voyage, you will reach your destination if you just keep going. Even though there are days when your goal seems a million miles away. For the farmer, the sailor, or you and me, every day of the journey is critical. They all add up to your success.

Remember, what you do today will bring you one day closer to where you want to be—whether you are able to recognize it at this time or not. Keeping the faith today is the price we pay and, as always,

Today’s the day!!

Foundations for Success

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.
