(Napoleon Hill’s Grandson)

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

Dear Readers,

There are both great destinies and obstacles in your future, but you were born with the powers and capabilities that will let you improve your situation and be a success. You have the gifts that will let you make the right choices and take action, with your success or failure hanging in the balance.

Robert Collier penned a wonderful seven-volume set of little books in 1926 called The Secret of the Ages. In one volume, Collier wrote a section on desire, and he asked the question, “If you had a fairy wishing ring, what one thing would you wish for? Wealth? Honor? Fame? Love? What one thing do you desire above everything else in life?”

George Lucas once said “You have to find something that you love enough to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don’t have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you’ll stop at the first giant hurdle.”

You will find that perseverance is much easier when you have selected your purpose in life. Here is where it is essential that you love what you are doing, have a passion for it, and have a belief that you will reach your goal. You will be less likely to give up when you are going after something you care about and doing what you love to do.


I wish you the best,
Don Green

by Napoleon Hill

Love is man’s greatest experience. It brings one into communication with Infinite Intelligence.

When it is blended with the emotions of sex and romance it may lead one to the higher mountain-peaks of individual achievement through creative vision.

The emotions of love, sex and romance are the three sides of the eternal triangle of achievement known as genius. Nature creates geniuses through no other media.

Love is an outward expression of the spiritual nature of man. Sex is purely biological, but it supplies the springs of action in all creative effort, from the humblest creature that crawls to the most profound of all creations, man.

When love and sex are combined with the spirit of romance the world may well rejoice, for these are the potentials of the great leaders who are the profound thinkers of the world.

Love makes all mankind akin!

It clears out selfishness, greed, jealousy, and envy, and makes right royal kings of the humblest of men. True greatness will never be found where love does not abide.

The love of which I speak must not be confused with the emotions of sex, for love in its highest and purest expression, is a combination of the eternal triangle, yet it is greater than anyone of its three component parts.

The love to which I refer is the “elan vital”—the life-giving factor—the spring of action—of all the creative endeavors which have lifted mankind to his present state of refinement and culture.

It is the one factor which draws a clear line of demarcation between man and all of the creatures of the earth below him. It is the one factor which determines for every man the amount of space he shall occupy in the hearts of his fellowmen.

Love is the solid foundation upon which the first of the Twelve Riches may be built, a positive mental attitude, and let us take heed that no man may ever become truly rich without it.

Love is the warp and the woof of all the remaining eleven riches. It embellishes all riches and gives them the quality of endurance, evidence of which may be revealed by cursory observation of all who have acquired material riches but have not acquired love.

The habit of going the extra mile leads to the attainment of that spirit of love, for there can be no greater expression of love than love which is demonstrated through service that is rendered unselfishly for the benefit of others.

Emerson had the vision of the kind of love to which I refer when he said: “Those who are capable of humility, of justice, of love, of aspiration, are already on the platform that commands the sciences and arts, speech and poetry, action and grace. For whoso dwells in this mortal beatitude does already anticipate those special powers which men prize so highly…

“The magnanimous know very well that they who give time, or money, or shelter, to the stranger—so it be done for love, and not for ostentation—do, as it were, put God under obligation to them, so perfect are the compensations of the universe. In some way the time they seem to lose, is redeemed, and the pains they take, remunerate themselves. These men fan the flame of human love and raise the standard of civic virtue among mankind.”

The great minds of every age have recognized love as the eternal elixir that binds the heart-wounds of mankind and makes men their brothers’ keepers. One of the greatest minds this nation ever produced expressed his views on love in a classic that shall live as long as time endures. Robert G. Ingersoll said:

“Love is the only bow on life’s dark cloud.

It is the morning and the evening star.

It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb.

It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.

It is the air and light of every heart—builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth.

It was the first to dream of immortality.

It fills the world with melody—for music is the voice of love.

Love is the magician, the enchanted, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings and queens of common clay.

It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven and we are gods.

Love is transfiguration. It ennobles, purifies and glorifies…Love is a revelation, a creation. From love the world borrows its beauty and the heavens their glory. Justice, self-denial, charity and pity are the children of love…Without love all glory fades, the noble falls from life, art dies, music loses meaning and becomes mere motions of the air, and virtue ceases to exist.”

If a man is truly great he will love all mankind!

He will love the good and the bad among all humanity. The good he will love with pride and admiration and joy. The bad he will love with pity and sorrow, for he will know, if he be truly great, that both good and bad qualities in men often are but the results of circumstances over which they have, because of their ignorance, little control.

If a man be truly great he will be compassionate, sympathetic and tolerant. When he is compelled to pass judgment upon others he will temper justice with tender mercy, throwing himself always on the side of the weak, the uninformed and the poverty-stricken.

Thus he will not only go the extra mile in a true spirit of Fellowship, but he will go willingly and graciously. And if the second mile be not enough he will go the third and the fourth, and as many additional miles as may be necessary.

The Key to Happiness
by Jim Stovall

In this day-to-day existence that we commonly call life, there are those rare and special moments when we rise above the fray and experience our true destiny. When it is all said and done, I believe that—more than anything else—life is about being happy in the active pursuit of making others happy. Most people are too busy making a living to really have a life. Happiness is often elusive and fleeting.

There are three elements that, when combined, always result in happiness. Like a three-legged stool, they work in tandem. Any two of the three are sorely lacking when the third element is absent.

In order to be truly happy in the largest sense of that word, we must have something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to. Given those three things, we will find ourselves experiencing happiness and joy. Take away one or more of these elements, and we are but groping in the dark for that elusive, missing, intangible, undefinable “something” that we only know exists because we don’t seem to have it.

“Something to do” represents the investment of the most precious commodity that we all have—our time. We all have the same amount of hours and minutes each day. Success and happiness hang in the balance based upon how we invest our time. Many people think that paradise would be a wonderful tropical island where there was nothing to do all day. Great literature is full of examples of people on such islands, totally invested in the pursuit of escaping.

“Someone to love” represents the investment of esteem and caring that we invest in others. In order to experience happiness, we must emotionally get outside of ourselves to affect the outcome of other people’s lives.

“Something to look forward to” is the investment of hope and energy we put forward into a time that has not yet arrived. No one can truly be happy who lives only in the here-and-now. We have to accept the fact that there is more to this existence than we currently have in front of us.

The next time you find yourself experiencing that life of “quiet desperation,” examine your soul and determine whether you’re missing something to do, someone to love, or something to look forward to.

Therein lies the key to your happiness.

Today’s the day!
