(Napoleon Hill’s Grandson)

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

Dear Readers,

THE GREATEST WASTE of all is the waste of our own potential mind power. The famous Harvard professor and psychologist William James estimated that the average person uses only 10 percent of his mental power. He has unlimited power—yet he uses only about one-tenth of it. The power to be what you want to be, to get what you desire, and to accomplish whatever it is you are striving for abides within you. You are the one who is responsible for bringing it forth and putting it to work.

Within you is this power that, when properly grasped and directed, can lift you out of the rut of mediocrity and place you among the few who make large accomplishments in life. You must learn to use this power and realize that the mind can achieve all things.

One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
’Tis the set of the sails, and not the gales,
That tell us the way they go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life:
’Tis the set of a soul that decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

Every sincere person wants to better their condition in life.

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?

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.

In the following excerpt from The Master Key to Riches Napoleon Hill introduces us to “Eight Princes” that are inside of us all, and these “Princes” can empower us to succeed!


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

The Eight Princes
by Napoleon Hill

The princes serve me through a technique that is simple and adaptable.

Every night, as the last order of the day’s activities, the Princes and I have a roundtable session, the Major Purpose of which is to permit me to express my gratitude for the service they have rendered me during the day.

The conference proceeds precisely as it would if the Princes were revealed to me in the flesh, but of course they exist on a higher plane than the physical, and I contact them through the power of thought.

Here you may receive your first test as to your capacity to “condition” your mind for the acceptance of riches. When the shock comes just remember what happened when Morse, and Marconi, and Edison, and Ford and the Wright Brothers first announced their perfection of new and better ways of rendering service. It will help you to stand up under the shock.

And now let us go into a session with the Princes:


Today has been beautiful.

It has provided me with health of body and mind. It has given me food and clothing.

It has brought me another day of opportunity to be of service to others.

It has given me peace of mind and freedom from all fear.

For these blessings I am grateful to you, my Princes of Guidance. I am grateful to all of you collectively for having unraveled the tangled skein of my past life, thereby freeing my mind, my body and my soul from all causes and effects of both fear and strife.

Prince of Material Prosperity, I am grateful to you for having kept my mind attuned to the consciousness of opulence and plenty, and free from the fear of poverty and want.

Prince of Sound Physical Health, I am grateful to you for having attuned my mind to the consciousness of sound health, thereby providing the means by which every cell of my body and every physical organ is being adequately supplied with an inflow of cosmic energy sufficient unto its needs, and providing a direct contact with Infinite Intelligence which is sufficient for the distribution and application of this energy where it is required.

Prince of Peace of Mind, I am grateful to you for having kept my mind free from all inhibitions and self-imposed limitations, thereby providing my body and my mind with complete rest.

Prince of Hope, I am grateful to you for the fulfillment of today’s desires, and for your promise of fulfillment of tomorrow’s aims.

Prince of Faith, I am grateful to you for the guidance which you have given me; for your having inspired me to do that which has been helpful to me, and for turning me back from doing that which had it been done would have proven harmful to me. You have given power to my thoughts, momentum to my deeds, and the wisdom which has enabled me to understand the laws of Nature, and the judgment to enable me to adapt myself to them in a spirit of harmony.

Prince of Love, I am grateful to you for having inspired me to share my riches with all whom I have contacted this day; for having shown me that only that which I give away can I retain as my own. And I am grateful too for the consciousness of love with which you have endowed me, for it has made life sweet and all my relationships with others pleasant.

Prince of Romance, I am grateful to you for having inspired me with the spirit of youth despite the passing of the years.

Prince of Overall Wisdom, my eternal gratitude to you for having transmuted into an enduring asset of priceless value, all of my past failures, defeats, errors of judgment and of deed, all fears, mistakes, disappointments and adversities of every nature; the asset consisting of my willingness and ability to inspire others to take possession of their own minds and to use their mind power for the attainment of the riches of life, thus providing me with the privilege of sharing all of my blessings with those who are ready to receive them, and thereby enriching and multiplying my own blessings by the scope of their benefit to others.

My gratitude to you also for revealing to me the truth that no human experience need become a liability; that all experiences may be transmuted into useful service; that the power of thought is the only power over which I have complete control; that the power of thought may be translated into happiness at will; that there are no limitations to my power of thought save only those which I set up in my own mind.

My greatest asset consists in my good fortune in having recognized the existence of the Eight Princes, for it is they who conditioned my mind to receive the benefits of the Twelve Riches.

It is the habit of daily communication with the Princes which insures me the endurance of these riches, let the circumstances of life be whatever they may.

The Princes serve as the medium through which I keep my mind fixed upon the things I desire and off of the things I do not desire!

They serve as a dependable fetish, a rosary of power, through which I may draw at will upon the powers of thought, with “each hour a pearl, each pearl a blessing.”

They provide me with continuous immunity against all forms of negative mental attitude; thus they destroy both the seed of negative thought and the germination of that seed in the soil of my mind.

They help me to keep my mind fixed upon my Major Purpose in life, and to give the fullest expression to the attainment of that purpose.

They keep me at peace with myself, at peace with the world, and in harmony with my own conscience.

They aid me in closing the doors of my mind to all unpleasant thoughts of past failures and defeats. Nay, they aid me in converting all of my past liabilities into assets of priceless value.

The Princes have revealed to me the existence of that “other self ’ which thinks, moves, plans, desires and acts by the impetus of a power which recognizes no such reality as an impossibility.

The Rear-View Mirror
by Jim Stovall


You may have heard someone say referring to a particularly frustrating or embarrassing moment, “If I had only known then what I know now…” You may have even said or felt this yourself. While it would be nice to be able to relive our past with the benefit of our current wisdom and knowledge, this is impossible. You can’t avoid a bad situation with wisdom you gained from the bad situation you are trying to avoid.

William Blake said, “You must live your life going forward, but you can only understand it looking backward.” This leaves us with the prospect of boldly moving ahead into uncharted waters without any personal experience or understanding of many situations; however, we need not move into the future unarmed. A smart person learns from his or her own mistakes, while a wise person learns from the mistakes and experiences of others.

Virtually everyone is going through their daily lives hoping to have a great idea. The only thing you need to do to have a great idea is to wait for something bad to happen in your daily routine and ask the pertinent question, “How could I have avoided that?” The answer to that simple question is a great idea. Taking it one step further, you can simply ask, “How can I help other people avoid that?” The answer to that question introduces a great opportunity, venture, or business.

You need not experience every problem or challenge in life to learn from it. When you’re driving along a road that you think is only wet but you see that a car in front of you has slid into the ditch, you can gain wisdom from their experience by realizing the road is not merely wet but covered with black ice; you can, therefore, reduce your speed, proceed with caution, and avoid a situation revealed by someone else. Life is navigated looking through the windshield but understood peering into the rearview mirror.

You can meet the wisest people who ever lived and learn their profound secrets gained through their own mistakes, errors, and painful experiences within the pages of many great biographies. Always think before you act, and if you don’t have any personal experience to consider, study the path that others have traveled before you, and avoid the pitfalls.

As you go through your day today, keep your windshield clean and your rearview mirror focused.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall
