“Any business whose management has the foresight to adopt a policy which consolidates management, employees and the public it serves in a spirit of team work, provides itself with an insurance policy against failure.” ~Napoleon Hill

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

Dear Readers,

If you are to obtain wealth, you must have the desire for wealth. Once you have this desire to create wealth, then you must achieve a belief that you can do it. If you believe that you can do it—see it as an existing fact—anything you can rightly wish for is yours. Belief is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” This is why the saying “I will believe it when I see it” is incorrect—you will see it if you first believe it. The belief should come first.

One may observe that many people who have accomplished a great deal seem to be no more capable or learned than those who struggle day after day, yet accomplish very little. What is the power that gives new life to those who succeed on the road to success?

The power that makes accomplishments possible
is belief. Belief or faith gives one the power to put
forth the effort necessary to reach success and
to avoid failure.

Your own belief in yourself is a power within you that makes all things attainable. You can do anything that you think you can do. Belief in yourself allows you the expectation that you can solve every problem that faces humanity and obtain everything that is right.

Everything that can be desired is the result of thought. William James said, “The more the mind does, the more it can do.” Getting tired from doing is more a result of boredom than of fatigue from physical exertion.

If you are told repeatedly that you cannot do certain things, you may come to believe that you can’t do them. Remember that success is a state of mind, but also remember that failure is a state of mind. You must see yourself doing the thing you desire because you need to know that you can and will do it. The negative side of belief is that if you believe you cannot do a thing, you will not be able to do it.

It is necessary for you to believe in yourself if you are to make the most of your abilities. It is urgent that you believe in yourself in order to get others to cooperate with you in carrying out whatever tasks you are undertaking.


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

The Law of Success

The Second Step toward Riches

This is the third in a series of excerpts from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich.

FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.

The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all the major positive emotions. When the three are blended, they have the effect of “coloring” the vibration of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, where it is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from Infinite Intelligence.

Love and faith are psychic; related to the spiritual side of man. Sex is purely biological, and related only to the physical. The mixing, or blending, of these three emotions has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the finite, thinking mind of man, and Infinite Intelligence.


There comes, now, a statement which will give a better understanding of the importance the principle of auto-suggestion assumes in the transmutation of desire into its physical, or monetary equivalent; namely: FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind, through the principle of auto-suggestion.

As an illustration, consider the purpose for which you are, presumably, reading this book. The object is, naturally, to acquire the ability to transmute the intangible thought impulse of DESIRE into its physical counterpart, money. By following the instructions laid down in the chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind, summarized in the chapter on auto-suggestion, you may CONVINCE the subconscious mind that you believe you will receive that for which you ask, and it will act upon that belief, which your subconscious mind passes back to you in the form of “FAITH,” followed by definite plans for procuring that which you desire.

The method by which one develops FAITH, where it does not already exist, is extremely difficult to describe, almost as difficult, in fact, as it would be to describe the color of red to a blind man who has never seen color, and has nothing with which to compare what you describe to him. Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.

Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.

Perhaps the meaning may be made clearer through the following explanation as to the way men sometimes become criminals. Stated in the words of a famous criminologist, “When men first come into contact with crime, they abhor it. If they remain in contact with crime for a time, they become accustomed to it, and endure it. If they remain in contact with it long enough, they finally embrace it, and become influenced by it.”

This is the equivalent of saying that any impulse of thought which is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is, finally, accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind, which proceeds to translate that impulse into its physical equivalent, by the most practical procedure available.

In connection with this, consider again the statement, ALL THOUGHTS WHICH HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALIZED, (given feeling) AND MIXED WITH FAITH, begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.

The emotions, or the “feeling” portion of thoughts, are the factors which give thoughts vitality, life and action. The emotions of Faith, Love, and Sex, when mixed with any thought impulse, give it greater action than any of these emotions can do singly.

Not only thought impulses which have been mixed with FAITH, but those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, or any of the negative emotions, may reach, and influence the subconscious mind.

From this statement, you will understand that the subconscious mind will translate into its physical equivalent, a thought impulse of a negative or destructive nature, just as readily as it will act upon thought impulses of a positive or constructive nature. This accounts for the strange phenomenon which so many millions of people experience, referred to as “misfortune,” or “bad luck.”

There are millions of people who BELIEVE themselves “doomed” to poverty and failure, because of some strange force over which they BELIEVE they have no control. They are the creators of their own “misfortunes,” because of this negative BELIEF, which is picked up by the subconscious mind, and translated into its physical equivalent.

This is an appropriate place at which to suggest again that you may benefit, by passing on to your subconscious mind, any DESIRE which you wish translated into its physical, or monetary equivalent, in a state of expectancy or BELIEF that the transmutation will actually take place. Your BELIEF, or FAITH, is the element which determines the action of your subconscious mind. There is nothing to hinder you from “deceiving” your subconscious mind when giving it instructions through autosuggestion, as I deceived my son’s subconscious mind.

To make this “deceit” more realistic, conduct yourself just as you would, if you were ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MATERIAL THING WHICH YOU ARE DEMANDING, when you call upon your subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind will transmute into its physical equivalent, by the most direct and practical media available, any order which is given to it in a state of BELIEF, or FAITH that the order will be carried out.

Surely, enough has been stated to give a starting point from which one may, through experiment and practice, acquire the ability to mix FAITH with any order given to the subconscious mind. Perfection will come through practice. It cannot come by merely reading instructions.

A Light for Your Path
by Gerardo Dominguez



Success leaves clues. Trying to achieve some kind of success in any area of our lives can become a challenge for sure. But trying to achieve success without any path to follow or without some kind of guidance may be equal to wanting to win the lottery without even buying a ticket.

The first time I read about Napoleon Hill I was amazed by how simple and reasonable his philosophy is. To achieve success, you have to follow what others have done. And not only follow what somebody else has done but follow what people who have what you want is the key to achieve real success. And even better if the steps you are following are those that were taken by people who achieved massive success.

There are two principles that changed my life since the first time I learned them. The first one is the Principle of Definiteness of Purpose and the second principle is Accurate Thinking.

You can achieve success in any area of your life as long as you are willing to define clearly the kind of success you want to achieve. The majority of us take this power, of being able to design success in our minds first, for granted and waste precious time and energy focusing on daily routines and hoping luck will change our lives. But the truth is that nothing great happens just by luck in our lives, great things happen when we define our objectives and we make the decision of focusing on them definitely and obsessively until they become our reality.

Once we make the decision of achieving our true purpose, we must guide our thoughts with the right kind of information. Information that makes us grow and makes our purpose grow. It may represent a challenge to get rid of fiction, opinions and unimportant information. It is a common denominator of success that separating facts from all the distracting noise we may hear on a daily basis is key to achieving success.

Definiteness of Purpose and Accurate Thinking will give you an end goal to achieve and a light as you walk through the path you desire for yourself.

Iluminación para el Camino
de Gerardo Dominguez

El éxito deja pistas. Intentar alcanzar algún tipo de éxito en cualquier área de nuestras vidas puede ser un reto sin duda alguna. Pero intentar alcanzar el éxito sin algún camino que seguir o sin algún tipo de guía puede ser igual a querer ganar la lotería sin siquiera comprar un boleto.

La primera vez que leí acerca de Napoleon Hill, me sorprendió lo simple y razonable que es su filosofía. Para alcanzar el éxito, tienes que seguir los pasos que otros han tomado. Y no solo basta con seguir los pasos de otros, pero es el seguir los pasos de quienes han logrado lo que tu deseas la llave para alcanzar verdadero éxito. Y mejor aun si los pasos que sigues son de quienes han alcanzado éxito masivo.

Existen dos principios que me cambiaron la vida desde que los aprendí por primera vez. El primero es el prinipio de un Propósito Definitivo y el segundo es el principio de Precisión de Pensamiento.

Puedes alcanzar el éxito en cualquier área de tu vida, siempre y cuando estés dispuesto a definir claramente el tipo de éxito que quieres alcanzar. La mayoría de nosotros menospreciamos este poder de ser capaces de diseñar el éxito en nuestras mentes, y perdemos tiempo y energía al enfocarnos en rutinas diarias y esperando a que la suerte cambie nuestras vidas. Pero la verdad es que nada ocurre por suerte en nuestras vidas. Las cosas grandiosas ocurren cuando definimos nuestros objetivos y tomamos la decisión de enfocarnos obsesivamente y de manera definitiva en ellos hasta que se hagan realidad.

Una vez tomamos la decisión de alcanzar nuestro verdadero porpósito, debemos guiar nuestros pensamientos con la información correcta. Información que nos haga crecer y que permita crecer nuestro propósito.

Puede representar un reto el deshacerse de de aquello que es ficción, opiniones y poco importante. Pero es un común denominador del éxito que separar los hechos de todo el ruido que escuchamos diariamente, es la llave para alcanzar el éxito.

Un Propósito Definitivo y la Precisión de Pensamiento te darán un objetivo que alcanzar y también iluminarán el camino mientras avanzas hacia la vida que deseas.
