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,

Nobody can define success for someone else, but the desire to be successful is the starting point for everyone.

Success should bring you personal contentment with your own life while you strive to make the world a better place in which to live. A personal commitment to do something that you have a passion for will help you to develop a life that truly matters.

James A. Brown, Jr., gave me my first job in banking, and I remember the interview as if it were today. “Jim” told me, “If you do a little extra for a day or for a week, it might not matter, but over a period of years, it will separate you from the rest, who will only dream of success.”

Going the Extra Mile is only one of the seventeen principles of success that Napoleon Hill says will separate you from the rest. I encourage you sign up for this seventeen-week course that will provide great value on your journey to success.


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

The Law of Success

Going the Extra Mile
by Napoleon Hill

It is a well-established fact that men who make themselves indispensable in any job, business or profession generally write their own price tag and the world willingly pays it.

This chapter covers a subject which, more than all others, describes the method by which one may make himself indispensable. Therefore, the chapter may be of priceless value to all readers who earn their living by rendering service to others.

Reduced to its simplest terms, Going the Extra Mile means the rendering of more service and better service than one is paid to render. When adopted and followed as a habit, this principle gives one the benefit of the law of increasing returns. Stated conversely, failure to apply this principle as a habit handicaps one through the operation of the law of diminishing returns.

A man who has been prominently engaged in the business of helping men and women to market their personal services to best advantages once said that a strict observance of the habit of doing more than one is paid to do is one unbeatable method by which an individual may promote himself to whatever position he is capable of filling.

Inasmuch as Andrew Carnegie founded the largest industrial organization in the United States, the great United States Steel Corporation, and during his business career became one of the largest employers of men, his views on the subject of this chapter should be of great help to the reader.

Not only was Mr. Carnegie one of the largest employers of men, but it is a well-known fact that he was one of America’s keenest judges of men. It is believed that he helped his men relate themselves to one another and to the business so efficiently that he made more millionaires than any other American industrialist, therefore he became an authority on the ways and means by which men market their service to best advantage.

It is worthy of note, also, that all the more than 500 distinguished leaders in industry and business who collaborated in the organization of the Philosophy of American Achievement emphasized the value of rendering more service and better service than one is paid to render by scrupulously following this habit themselves.

I call attention to these facts at the beginning of this chapter because of the widespread and growing tendency of people in America to reverse this principle by rendering as little service and as poor service as they can get away with.

Economic law makes it impossible for any man over a long period of time to take out of a job or commercial enterprise more than he puts into it. This law is not a man-made law entirely. It has its roots in the laws of nature, as there is evidence everywhere in the realm of nature that nature frowns upon the attempt to get something for nothing, or anything for less than its value.

Those who respond to this admonition are sure to discover that sooner or later they will be rewarded adequately for their wisdom, and the reward will consist of their receiving compensation far greater than the actual value of the services they render. The compensation will consist, not only of material gain, but it will be evidenced by greater strength of character, improved mental attitude and the development of self-reliance, initiative, enthusiasm and a reputation that will create an enduring market for their service.

There is a growing tendency on the part of a large number of people in America toward the habit of trying to get something for nothing. This dangerous trend began at the end of the First World War. It has been so definitely intensified during recent years that it now threatens to undermine the entire American way of life.

This trend has already begun to whittle away at the foundation of American industry, which is the chief source of employment.

No industry can operate successfully where men group themselves together in blocs and, by sheer strength of their numbers, or coercion, force the wage scales upward, and the quality and the quantity of service they perform, downward. There is a point beyond which this practice cannot be carried without bankrupting industry, and that point has just about been reached.

As this chapter is being written America faces the greatest crisis since that which gave this nation birth, 165 years ago. We are in the beginning of a great National Defense program which is dependent, entirely, upon American industry. The program cannot be successfully carried out by men who selfishly demand a full day’s pay for a poor day’s labor.

If there has ever been a time when every loyal American should do more than he is paid for, that time is now. The present emergency demands that the people of America forget their selfish interests and throw themselves wholeheartedly into the job of saving their right to liberty and freedom.

The time is at hand when every citizen is called upon to do more than he is paid for, not merely to promote his own private interests, but to contribute his part toward saving the American form of democracy which provides us all with our privilege of individual liberty and freedom.

The habit of Going the Extra Mile is, and always has been, the very hub of all personal promotion. No noteworthy success has ever been attained without following this habit. But the time has come, now, when we must go the extra mile to save the institution of Americanism.

If we wish to continue our enjoyment of a system of government that has given us the highest standard of living known to civilization, we must protect the foundation stones of that government and make them secure. This is a task which makes it not only desirable for us to Go the Extra Mile, but an absolute necessity.

Those of us who lack the ambition to do more than we are paid for as a means of self-promotion must adopt this habit as a means of self-protection. We may not wish personal luxury, but we surely have not sunk so low that we do not want personal liberty.

Liberty, like everything else that is worth having, has a price. We cannot buy liberty by doing as little as possible and demanding in return for this the fruits of liberty. No, the time is at hand when the American people will either take up and apply the spirit of the pioneers who risked their lives and their fortunes to give us liberty, or find themselves once more under the bondage of a foreign dictatorship which knows nothing of justice and liberty.

The U.S. Open Comes to a Close
by Jim Stovall


Millions of people around the world spent the middle part of June totally focused on the U.S. Open Golf Tournament. As the various stories unfolded, there were many lessons to be learned. People who thought that Tiger Woods was unbeatable learned that, while he may be the best in the world at what he does, no one is ever invincible.

Thousands who were present and millions watching on TV saw three elite, professional golfers at the top of their game miss short putts on the final hole that would have won the tournament. I have heard many people in the media and in-person say, “I could have made any of those three-putts.” In reality, if you took away the pressure, the tension, and everything that was at stake, any of us probably could have made those putts. But life doesn’t work that way.

Those three players each made in excess of 275 shots during the week that virtually no one else in the world could have made. Their high level of skill brought them to the last hole on the last day where they each missed the most simple shot of the week. This points out the old adage “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.”

Often in business and in life, it is the little, mundane details that are overlooked which cause us to experience a poor performance. Think of the people you know or the companies you do business with that impress you. Chances are, if you’ll really explore what makes the difference, it is the little things. A courteous greeting, a polite thank you note, or simply going the extra mile as a normal course of business could make all the difference.

Many of us fly with the airlines as a normal part of our routine. Travelers often speak of good flights and bad flights. If you ask them to define the difference, generally it will come down to a warm smile, a polite greeting, or a standard of professionalism just slightly above average. As you go through your day today, remember that the big things are important and they are what we focus on, but quite often, like the three golfers in the U.S. Open, you will be remembered for and live and die based on the little things.

Today’s the day!
