Success Habits
by Napoleon Hill

Never-before-published wisdom from famed self-help author, Napoleon Hill


Napoleon Hill, the legendary author of the classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, has been immortalized for his contributions to the self-help genre. In this never-before-published work, Hill shares his principles of success, key habits that provide the basis for life-changing success. Success Habits explains the fundamental rules that lead to a prosperous life. From the importance of having Definiteness of Purpose to the inexorable influence of the Cosmic Habit Force, Hill’s principles offer a new way of thinking about intention, self-discipline, and the way we lead our lives.

Originally a series of radio talks delivered in Paris, Missouri, Success Habits is filled with personal anecdotes and stories and is written in an approachable, conversational style. Hill’s insights apply to every facet of life, inspiring readers to leverage his principles to achieve their own aspirations and create the successful lives they have always dreamed of.

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

Dear Readers,

Throughout The Magic Ladder to Success, Dr. Hill has emphasized the need to work with other people. The lessons on the Master Mind, Enthusiasm, Initiative and Leadership, and Pleasing Personality all stress the importance of working relationships. So, it is no surprise that cooperation forms an essential step on The Ladder to Success.

Cooperation has to be given to be received. With the right attitude, you can win people to your cause for both long-term and short-term efforts. As with so many of the Principles of Success, you’ll discover that the practice of cooperation brings not only direct rewards but many attendant benefits that will be useful in building your dreams.


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

The Law of Success

by Napoleon Hill

This is the fifth in a series of excerpts from Napoleon Hill’s Magic Ladder to Success.

This is distinctly an age of cooperation in which we are living. The outstanding achievements in business, industry, finance, transportation and politics are all based upon the principle of cooperative effort.

You can hardly read a daily paper one week in succession without seeing notice of some consolidation or merger of business or industrial interests. These mergers and friendly alliances of business are based upon cooperation, because cooperation brings together in a spirit of harmony of purpose all the energies, whether human or mechanical, so that they function as one, without friction.

You will observe that some of the preceding Laws of this course must be practiced as a matter of habit before one can get perfect cooperation from others. For example, other people will not cooperate with you unless you have mastered and apply the Law of a Pleasing Personality. You will also notice that Enthusiasm and Self-Control and the Habit of Doing More than Paid for must be practiced before you can hope to gain full cooperation from others.

These Laws overlap one another, and all of them must be merged into the Law of cooperation, which means that one, to gain cooperation from others, must form the habit of practicing the Laws named.

No man is willing to cooperate with a person who has an offensive Personality. No man is willing to cooperate with one who is not Enthusiastic, or who lacks Self-Control. Power comes from organized, cooperative effort!

A few years ago the president of a well known real estate company addressed the following letter to the author:


Our firm will give you a check for $10,000.00 if you will show us how to get the confidence of the public as effectively as you do in connection with the work in which you are engaged.

Very cordially,

To this letter the following reply was sent:

May I not thank you for the compliment, and while I could use your check for $10,000.00, I am perfectly willing to give you, gratis, what information I have on the subject. If I have unusual ability to gain cooperation from other people, it is because of the following reasons:

1. I render more service than I ask people to pay for.
2. I engage in no transaction, intentionally, which does not benefit all whom it affects.
3. I make no statements which I do not believe to be true.
4. I have a sincere desire in my heart to be of useful service to the greatest number of people.
5. I like people better than I like money.
6. I am doing my best to live as well as to teach my own philosophy of success.
7. I accept no favors, from anyone, without giving favors in return.
8. I ask nothing of any person without having a right to that thing for which I ask.
9. I enter into no arguments with people over trivial matters.
10. I spread the sunshine of optimism and good cheer wherever and whenever I can.
11. I never flatter people for the purpose of gaining their confidence.
12. I sell counsel and advice to other people, at a modest price, but never offer free advice.
13. While teaching others how to achieve success, I have demonstrated that I can make my philosophy work for myself as well, thus “practicing that which I preach.”
14. I am so thoroughly sold on the work in which I am engaged that my enthusiasm over it becomes “contagious” and others are influenced by it.

If there are other elements entering into what you believe to be my ability to get the confidence of others, I do not know what they are. Incidentally, your letter raised an interesting question, and caused me to analyze myself as I had never done before. For this reason I refuse to accept your check, on the grounds that you have caused me to do something which may be worth many times ten thousand dollars.

Very cordially,

Crazy and Wise
by Jim Stovall



For the past 27 years, I have run the Narrative Television Network that makes movies, television, and other educational programming accessible to 13 million blind and visually impaired Americans and many millions more around the world. I founded NTN out of my own need, not any knowledge or expertise I had at that time because I, quite simply, didn’t have any. Today, I look back on our company’s growth and success in awe and wonder. We have received an Emmy Award, an International Film and Video Award, and the Media Access Award from the broadcast and cable industry. As I look back on our accomplishments, I am struck by how little we knew when we began.

Steve Jobs may have said it best when he declared, “The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Knowing what you want to do and why you want to do it are infinitely more valuable than understanding how to do something. My late, great friend, colleague, and mentor Dr. Robert Schuller was fond of saying, “Never let how you are going to do it get mixed up in what you are going to do.”

The people we call experts are those who have the best understanding of the current state-of-the-art. These experts’ livelihood, fame, and acclaim come from knowing how things are today and what makes them work; these individuals are, therefore, consciously or unconsciously reluctant to stretch the bounds of possibility as it might relate to breakthrough ideas presented by others. All innovation, invention, and development does not fit into the current world; therefore, if you ask one of these experts about doing something that’s never been done, it is highly likely that you are going to get a negative response.

As I look back on my career in the broadcast, cable, and streaming industries during a time of rapid transition and innovation, I remain grateful that I was clueless. People who can best describe why things work today are often not the best people to evaluate how things might work in the future. When you do find it necessary to seek advice or counsel from people who are experts, it is far better to ask them how they would implement your idea and make it work rather than to ask them if they believe your idea will work.

The late, great entrepreneur and executive Mary Kay Ash said, “People will support that which they help to create.” We must use the expertise of others sparingly and wisely. Someone who knows it all today will be a washed-up antique in a few short years. Those who will succeed in the future will focus more on possibility than on reality.

As you go through your day today, be crazy like Steve Jobs and others who have changed the world.

Today’s the day!

Napoleon Hill’s Golden Rules

by Napoleon Hill



Napoleon Hill’s Golden Rules: The Lost Writings consists of a series of magazine articles Napoleon Hill wrote between 1919 and1923 for Success Magazine, of which he eventually become an editor. Hill’s obsession with achieving material success had led him from poverty stricken Appalachian Mountains with the desire to study successful people.

These articles focus on Hill’s philosophy of success, drawing on the thoughts and experience of a multitude of rags-to-riches tycoons, showing readers how these successful people achieved such status.

Many of his writings such as the chapter on Law of Attraction, written in the March 1919 issue, have recently basis of several bestselling books. Readers will discover principles that will assure their success if studied and put into action.

The Law of Success

by Napoleon Hill



This edition of Law of Success contains 4 volumes, the other three volumes are available on Amazon.com too.

In response to popular de­mand, and with great pride, the Napoleon Hill Foun­dation and its Board of Trustees present this edition of Dr. Hill’s classic course, The Law of Suc­cess. To preserve the integrity of Napoleon Hill’s ideas, the text of his first published work is largely un­modified. Our changes have been small. Specifically, The Law of Success was originally released in eight volumes: beginning with the third edition, the eight volumes were combined into one facsimile volume. Consequently, you will notice that the page num­bers start over every second lesson. Additionally, a few pages where the type had become illegible have been reset for easier reading.

The universal message of The Law of Success remains unaltered, however. Because of changes in customs and word use, the language may some­times appear dated, but the underlying principles are as valid today as they were when Hill first pre­sented them in his dynamic and forceful style. In particular, his use of the masculine gender should be taken to connote “mankind” or “humankind” rather than men alone. No one would have been prouder or more excited by the advances of the women’s movement than Dr. Hill, who advocated equal rights and equal opportunity for all people long before it was fashionable.

The Success Philosophy that Napoleon Hill pre­sents in this course and in his other works has with­stood the test of time. His principles of success have changed the lives of countless women and men from all walks of life on every continent. They can change your life, too, if you will apply them and get into action. This power to change your life is the legacy of Napoleon Hill; that is the standard by which all works of motivational literature and programs are measured.

To attain your goals and know fulfillment in life, study, think, plan, and apply the principles this book has to offer. To merely read and agree with Dr. Hill is to miss the crucial point of his philosophy: Success comes only when you act on what you know and believe.
