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

Dear Readers,

While I was working in the finance business, I was offered the job as second in command at a new bank. Once I had the job, I believed that I could become the chief executive officer of a bank. Not only did I compare myself to others in the position of CEO, but I believed that I needed only experience and the opportunity. It was important that I saw myself as a bank CEO. I continued to prepare myself for the job.

I applied my talents with a positive attitude and obtained results in my position that drew attention to me. I asked to be allowed to attend the Virginia Bankers School of Bank Management at the University of Virginia, and permission was granted. I gained a valuable education, but once I had graduated from the school, I was still not content.

I once attended a seminar at the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond, Virginia. Upon reading material from the Federal Reserve, I noticed that the officers of the Federal Reserve were graduates of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers University. Again I saw an opportunity to further my education and better prepare myself for a future opportunity.

I asked for permission to attend the Stonier Graduate School of Banking for three summer sessions, and I was again given the chance to study under some of the best instructors in banking and to work on banking projects with other bankers from many parts of the world.

Approximately three years after I graduated from Stonier, I was offered the CEO job, as I have explained previously. I do not relate this story to boast, because many others have accomplished much more than I did. I relate it to show you that goals are important, along with plans, belief, and a course of action designed to get you where you have had a vision of being.

Formal education is one essential key to continued success but we also need inspirational instruction to motivate us to our higher goals. As the New Year approaches I encourage you to attend Napoleon Hill’s Distance Learning course that begins January 7, 2019. Start the New Year off right with your goals and Napoleon Hill! I wish you a prosperous New Year!


I wish you the best,
Don Green

The Law of Success

This is the fifteenth and the last excerpt of this series that focused 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.

by Napoleon Hill

It Will Bring You Fame, Fortune, Peace of Mind or Whatever You Demand of Life!

In this picture you see the most powerful army on earth. Observe the emphasis on the word POWERFUL. This army is standing at attention, ready to do the bidding of any person who will command it. It is YOUR army if you will take charge of it.


A long, searching study of the lives of 500 great American men and women—as well as actual endorsement from nationally known leaders—proves that there are the basic principles upon which all true and lasting success is built.

POWER comes from organized effort. You see in this picture—in these “soldiers”—the forces which enter into all organized effort. Master these sixteen forces or personal qualities and you may have whatever you want in life.

Napoleon Hill’s Distance Learning Course begins
January 7, 2019.

It is because we sincerely feel that every reader of Think and Grow Rich should go on into this postgraduate course, that we take the liberty here of giving a few brief side lights upon this brilliant work.

This course presents the true Philosophy upon which all lasting success is built. Ideas, when translated into intelligent plans of action, are the beginning of all successful achievement. So the Law of Success proceeds to show you how to create practical ideas for every human need.

It does it in easy-to-understand lessons.

Napoleon Hill spent the better part of twenty-five years in perfecting this Philosophy of Success. During the long years he has worked on it, some parts or the whole of it, have been reviewed and praised by many of the greatest Americans of our times.

Among them are included four Presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Warren G. Harding, Wm. H. Taft; Thomas Edison, Luther Burbank, Wm. J. Wrigley, Alexander Graham Bell, Judge E. H. Gary, Cyrus H. K. Curtis, Edward Bok, E.M. Statler—dozens of glowing names in Politics, Finance, Education, Invention.

We invite you to start the New Year with your goals and Napoleon Hill’s Distance Learning Course.

Make it a prosperous New Year!

The Gift of Dreams
by Jim Stovall


Dreams are the stuff that makes up our lives. We are either in the fortunate group of people who are living out our dreams, or we are those restless, wondering individuals who are living the proverbial lives of quiet desperation.

I am not talking about daydreams or fantasies. We all have those fleeting glimpses of ourselves playing center field for the New York Yankees or the Arizona Diamondbacks, as the case may be, in the final game of the World Series. I am, instead, talking about dreams as a future visualization of how our lives could be or should be.

As young people, we all had those things we wanted to be or do or have. They were the dreams of our youth—the visualizations of our destiny. By the time we are an adult, functioning member of society, most of us have diminished our dreams or forgotten about them entirely.

Young people formulate their dreams as the choices among all the possibilities in the world. As we get older, we narrow our dreaming capacity to those things that we currently have the ability or the wherewithal to achieve. It is important to realize that the biggest dreams we ever had in our lives are still alive and well, and within the realm of possibility.

I always take the week between Christmas and the new year to reconnect with my dreams and goals. Often, throughout the year, it is hard to get away from the day-to-day rush and really think about the things that are important. We are so busy making a living we forget to create a life. The life we’re living right now is not a practice game. This is the Super Bowl and the World Series and the Olympics all rolled up into one. If you do not feel that kind of power and passion each day of your life, this would be a good time to dust off those old dreams and find your unique and fulfilling place in this world.

The Gift of Dreams is just one of the twelve life gifts in my book and movie The Ultimate Gift. I hope you will begin to explore each of the gifts and embrace your life as The Ultimate Gift.

Today’s the day!

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.
