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

Dear Readers,

It was Einstein who said that imagination was more important than knowledge. With a belief system, you can see images of what can occur in the future. These images will help you to believe in the future, develop plans, and have the persistence to see that those plans become reality.

Events that we are able to bring about happen because the beliefs we develop are so strong that we can hold on to them until our plans and actions can bring them to fruition.

Unless you have strong beliefs in what you want to become and develop those beliefs, it is highly unlikely that you will develop the plans and carry out the action needed to make you a highly successful person.

Wise men of the past realized and spoke of the fact that we are the result of our past thoughts. It is said that the overwhelming majority of people go to their graves without realizing the truth of this simple statement. If a person does not understand the importance of her thought process, then she is not likely to benefit from the proper use of her mind. The thought process has no limitations except those that we place on it. “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you,” wrote James Allen.

There is a saying in Buddhism, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” The simple fact is that your mind and the thoughts that you act on are what make you the person you are—either successful or unsuccessful.

At an early age, before I was of school age, my late father was an underground coal miner, and he told my brothers and me about the plants that grew wild in the mountainous area of southwestern Virginia where we lived. One of the plants was called mayapple, and once it was dug up and left in the sun to dry, it would sell for a few cents per pound. My father told me about the root and showed me how to dig it correctly. I did this and sold the roots for a few dollars; thus, even as a young child, I developed a belief that there was a way to make money. It was the biggest three dollars I had ever seen because I knew I had earned the money. Every event, condition, and thing is first an idea in someone’s mind.

Humans have a creative mind and are capable of creating results that have not existed before. However, a thought must exist before the mind can work. Remember, in all instances, a thought exists before a thing.

It is worth repeating many times that ideas within the mind are limited only by those limits placed on the mind by the individual.

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green

The Law of Success

This is the fifth of a series of excerpts that focus on the “secret” in Think and Grow Rich. What makes these selections so unique is that a keyword was chosen with an emphasis on the secret that Napoleon Hill so often mentioned. I know you will enjoy reading these powerful excerpts.

IMAGINATION
by Napoleon Hill

THE imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The impulse, the DESIRE, is given shape, form, and ACTION through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.

It has been said that men can create anything which he can imagine.

Of all the ages of civilization, this is the most favorable for the development of the imagination, because it is an age of rapid change. On every hand one may contact stimuli which develops the imagination.

Through the aid of his imaginative faculty, man has discovered, and harnessed, more of Nature’s forces during the past fifty years than during the entire history of the human race, previous to that time. He has conquered the air so completely, that the birds are a poor match for him in flying. He has harnessed the ether, and made it serve as a means of instantaneous communication with any part of the world. He has analyzed, and weighed the sun at a distance of millions of miles, and has determined, through the aid of IMAGINATION, the elements of which it consists. He has discovered that his own brain is both a broadcasting, and a receiving station for the vibration of thought, and he is beginning now to learn how to make practical use of this discovery. He has increased the speed of locomotion, until he may now travel at a speed of more than three hundred miles an hour. The time will soon come when a man may breakfast in New York, and lunch in San Francisco.

MAN’S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION. He has not yet reached the apex of development in the use of his imaginative faculty. He has merely discovered that he has an imagination, and has commenced to use it in a very elementary way.

Your imaginative faculty may have become weak through inaction. It can be revived and made alert through USE. This faculty does not die, though it may become quiescent through lack of use.

Center your attention, for the time being, on the development of the synthetic imagination, because this is the faculty which you will use more often in the process of converting desire into money.

Transformation of the intangible impulse, of DESIRE, into the tangible reality, of MONEY, calls for the use of a plan, or plans. These plans must be formed with the aid of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.

…IDEAS CAN BE TRANSMUTED INTO CASH THROUGH THE POWER OF DEFINITE PURPOSE, PLUS DEFINITE PLANS.

Transformation of the intangible impulse, of DESIRE, into the tangible reality, of MONEY, calls for the use of a plan, or plans. These plans must be formed with the aid of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.

If you are one of those who believes that hard work and honesty, alone, will bring riches, perish the thought! It is not true! Riches, when they come in huge quantities, are never the result of HARD work! Riches, come, if they come at all, in response to definite demands, based upon the application of definite principles, and not by chance or luck.

Generally speaking, an idea is an impulse of thought that impels action, by an appeal to the imagination. All master salesmen know that ideas can be sold where merchandise cannot. Ordinary salesmen do not know this—that is why they are “ordinary.”

When the idea (of a success philosophy*) was first planted in my mind by Mr. Carnegie, it was coaxed, nursed, and enticed to remain alive. Gradually, the idea became a giant under its own power, and it coaxed, nursed, and drove me. Ideas are like that. First, you give life and action and guidance to ideas, then they take on power of their own and sweep aside all opposition.

Making the Right Turn
by Jim Stovall

 

Most change and improvement comes in small steps and minute increments. I grow tired of politicians, critics, and commentators who respond to good ideas by proclaiming, “That suggestion won’t solve the entire problem.”

I have a friend and colleague who is a well-known author and speaker. He is fond of explaining, “One hundred 1 percent solutions are as good as a 100 percent solution.” Long-term success rarely comes from the grand-slam home run or the 100-yard touchdown run. It, instead, comes from moving the runner to first base or the football down the field.

Recently I read about an amazing breakthrough improvement made by United Parcel Service. UPS saved over $25 million in a decade, delivered more packages in a shorter time, and improved safety while lowering their carbon emissions impact by simply routing their trucks to cut out left-hand turns. An enterprising person at UPS discovered that by using the computer to establish more efficient routes that incorporated a series of right-hand looping turns instead of left-hand turns which force drivers to cross traffic and wait for lights to change, the company cut costs, improved safety, and increased profits.

Now I can hear the gloom-and-doom critics whining, “What does $25 million over 10 years really mean to UPS?” Any time you run across someone who thinks $25 million doesn’t matter, just tell them to make that check out to Jim Stovall, and they can reach me via the contact information provided at the back of the book.

The breakthrough in the right-hand turn policy is not just the $25 million, the improved efficiency, the increased safety, or the lowered emissions—it fosters a culture of thought, exploration, and improvement. If you can get a group of people to stop criticizing every thought or idea that doesn’t solve the whole problem, and get them to start looking for 1 percent improvements in their own sphere of influence or scope of work, you can change the world.

Great ideas build upon one another. They come about when average people think and act in extraordinary ways.

As you go through your day today, look for the 1 percent right turn in your own world.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall

Think and Grow Rich

 

Master-Key to Riches

Truthful Living

by Napoleon Hill Foreword, Actions and Annotations by Jeffrey Gitomer

 

New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Gitomer brings you the very foundation of Napoleon Hill’s self-help legacy: his long-lost original notes, letters, and lectures—now compiled, edited, and annotated for the modern reader.

Twenty years before the publication of his magnum opus Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill was an instructor, philosopher, and writer at the George Washington Institute in Chicago, where he taught courses in advertising and sales. These rare, never-before-seen lectures were thought to be lost to history. Until now.

Given exclusive access to the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Jeffrey Gitomer has unearthed Hill’s original course notes containing the fundamental beliefs in hard work and personal development that established Hill as a global leader of success and positive attitude.

In Truthful Living, Gitomer has captured Hill’s foundational wisdom for the twenty-first century. These easy-to-implement real-world strategies for life, family, business, and the bottom line prove as energizing and inspiring today as they were nearly one hundred years ago.
