The motto of the Napoleon Hill Foundation is, “Making the world a better place in which to live.” If you believe that life has purpose or meaning, then you can leave a legacy that helps make the world a better place. The decisions that you make—or do not make—will help determine the type of legacy you leave behind. Whether you are part of the solutions to the cries for help or part of the problems that confront the human race will be a result of your actions on a daily basis...

Factors that determine success are offering a service or a product that is desired in the market. Note that I did not say a service or product that people need. Ray Kroc made millions by selling hamburgers; this was not necessarily a product that people needed, but it was something they wanted. The degree to which you do something better than others and receive just rewards for your service or product will determine your success...

At one time, Mr. Stone was chairman of the board of the Napoleon Hill Foundation. He was in his nineties. Always dressed as a successful businessman, Mr. Stone was an imposing figure. I had read his book The Success System That Never Fails. This is a must-read for anyone who is interested in how to be successful. Mr. Stone grew up on Chicago’s tough South Side, lost his father when he was quite young and was out on the street selling newspapers at the age of 6. He was often beaten by other boys, but he persisted and began to accept responsibility for his future at a very early age...

Here is the system that I have personally used for many years to set goals; it will work for you. Each year, toward year-end, I spend some quiet time with a legal pad and pen and write down what I would like to accomplish in the next year, three years, five years, and ten years. I may list many things, but studying them will allow me to determine which are the most important to me. Next, I list the goals on 3 x 5 index cards...

I remember that when I was a young person, several weeks before Christmas, I was not thinking about toys or clothes that I might receive as gifts. I was thinking of ways to make money. I would think of holly, Christmas trees, and mistletoe that could be found in the woods and brought to the highway to sell to people who were traveling at this time of year. The thought of making money was so strong and I pictured it so vividly that its fruition seemed assured, as if it had already happened...

John Ruskin, the nineteenth-century English writer, wrote: “You will find that the mere resolve not to be useless, and the honest desire to help other people, will, in the quickest and most delicate ways, improve yourself.” I must admit that at the beginning of my career, it was money, money, money that motivated me, because I never thought I had enough. As I grew older, I learned what philosophers...

When you have selected your major purpose in life and made plans to reach your goal, you will be less likely to quit if a plan that you previously made fails. Once you have developed your major purpose in life, the passion it creates will lead you to achieve greater self-discipline, self-reliance, and enthusiasm. Once you begin to work on your plans, you will see personal initiative begin to assist you and recognize that those who have a purpose, a plan, and personal initiative are the true success stories...

Every day we have an opportunity to be grateful for something or someone in our life. But do we always do it? This time of year, here in the United States, we are reminded to be grateful for all that we have as we celebrate our humble beginnings through the National Holiday of Thanksgiving...
