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

Dear Readers,

As we continue to feature Napoleon Hill’s publications this year, we continue with Napoleon Hill’s and W. Clement Stone’s Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. The following is the Preface to Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by Og Mandino. I think you will appreciate his contribution:

 

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

 

PREFACE

The great Danish philosopher and religious thinker, Soren Kierkegaard, once wrote, “It is the sign of a good book when the book reads you.”

You hold in your hands such a book—one that has not only become a classic in the self-help field, but also has that rare ability to relate to your problems, sympathize with them, and then advise you on their solutions as a wise old friend would.

Still, I must warn you.

Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude will do nothing for you. If you truly wish to change your life for the better, and are willing to pay a price in time and thinking and effort to reach your goals—and if you’re not kidding yourself—then you hold in your hands a diamond plucked from a beach of pebbles, a road map to a better future, a valuable blueprint that will enable you to completely restructure your future.

I speak from experience. Many years ago, through my own stupidities and faults, I lost everything that was precious to me—my family, my home, and my job. Nearly penniless, and with no guidance, I began to wander the country, searching for myself and for some answers that would make my life bearable.

I spent much time in public libraries because they were free—and warm. I read everything from Plato to Peale, seeking that one message that would explain to me where I had gone wrong—and what I could do to salvage the remainder of my life.

I finally found my answer in W. Clement Stone’s and Napoleon Hill’s Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. I have employed the simple techniques and methods found in this classic for more than fifteen years, and they have provided me with riches and happiness far beyond anything I deserve. From a penniless vagrant without a single root I eventually became the president of two corporations and the executive editor of the finest magazine of its kind in the world, Success Unlimited. I also wrote six books, and one of them, The Greatest Salesman in the World, has now become the best-selling book for salespeople of all time; it has been translated into fourteen languages and has sold more than three million copies.

None of these things would have been accomplished without the daily application of the principles of success and living that I found in Stone’s and Hill’s classic. If I could accomplish what I did starting from ground zero, just think what you can do with all you have going for you already.

We live in a strange and fast-moving world; each day a new false prophet arises preaching his own brand of happiness and success attainment. Like hula hoops and pet rocks they will all disappear as quickly as they appeared, and when the fog lifts, the truth of Stone’s and Hill’s book will still be changing the lives of thousands yet unborn.

Do you really want to change your life for the better?

If you do, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude can be the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you. Read it. Study it. Read it again. Then get into action. It’s all very simple, really, if you make up your mind to work at it.

And wonderful things will begin happening to you. I should know.

-Og Mandino

MEET THE MOST IMPORTANT LIVING PERSON
by Napoleon Hill

Meet the most important living person!

Somewhere in this book you will meet him—suddenly, surprisingly and with a shock of recognition that will change your whole life. When you do meet him, you will discover his secret. You will discover that he carries with him an invisible talisman with the initials PMA emblazoned on one side, and NMA on the other.

This invisible talisman has two amazing powers: it has the power to attract wealth, success, happiness and health; and it has the power to repel these things—to rob you of all that makes life worth living. It is the first of these powers, PMA, that enables some men to climb to the top and stay there. It is the second that keeps other men at the bottom all their lives. It is NMA that pulls other men down from the top when they have reached it.

Perhaps the story of S.B. Fuller will illustrate how it works.

“We are poor—not because of God.” S.B. Fuller was one of seven children of a Negro tenant farmer in Louisiana. He started to work at the age of five. By the time he was nine, he was driving mules. There was nothing unusual in this: the children of most of the tenant farmers went to work early. These families accepted poverty as their lot and asked for no better.

Young Fuller was different from his friends in one way: he had a remarkable mother. His mother refused to accept this hand-to-mouth existence for her children, though it was all she had ever known. She knew there was something wrong with the fact that her family was barely getting along in a world of joy and plenty. She used to talk to her son about her dreams.

“We shouldn’t be poor, S.B.,” she used to say. “And don’t ever let me hear you say that it is God’s Will that we are poor. We are poor—not because of God. We are poor because father has never developed a desire to become rich. No one in our family has ever developed a desire to be anything else.”

No one had developed a desire to be wealthy. This idea became so deeply ingrained in Fuller’s mind that it changed his whole life. He began to want to be rich. He kept his mind on the things he did want and off the things he didn’t want. Thus he developed a burning desire to become rich. The quickest way to make money, he decided, was to sell something. He chose soap. For twelve years he sold it, door to door. Then he learned that the company which supplied him was going to be sold at auction. The firm price was $150,000. In twelve years of selling and setting aside every penny, he had saved $25,000. It was agreed that he would deposit his $25,000 and obtain the balance of$125,000 within a ten-day period. Written into the contract was the condition that if he did not raise the money, he would lose his deposit.

During his twelve years as a soap salesman, S.B. Fuller had gained the respect and admiration of many businessmen. He went to them now. He obtained money from personal friends, too, and from loan companies and investment groups. On the eve of the tenth day, he had raised $115,000. He was $10,000 short.

Search for the light. “I had exhausted every source of credit I knew,” he recalls. “It was late at night. In the darkness of my room I knelt down and prayed. I asked God to make the light a sign indicating His answer.”

It was eleven o’clock at night when S.B. Fuller drove down Chicago’s 61st Street. At last, after several blocks he saw a light in a contractor’s office.

He walked in. There, seated at his desk, tired from working late at night, sat a man whom Fuller knew slightly. Fuller realized that he would have to be bold.

“Do you want to make $1,000?” asked Fuller straight out.

The contractor was taken aback at the question. “Yes,” he said. “Of course.”

“Then make out a check for $10,000 and when I bring back the money, I’ll bring back another $1,000 profit,” Fuller recalls telling this man. He gave the contractor the names of the people who had lent him money, and explained in detail exactly what the business venture was.

Let’s explore his secret of success. Before he left that night, S.B. Fuller had a check for $10,000 in his pocket. Today he owns controlling interest not only in that company, but in seven others, including four cosmetic companies, a hosiery company, a label company, and a newspaper. When we asked him recently to explore with us the secret of his success, he answered in terms of his mother’s statement so many years before:

“We are poor—not because of God. We are poor because father has never developed a desire to become rich. No one in our family has ever developed a desire to be anything else.”

“You see,” he told us, “I knew what I wanted, but I didn’t know how to get it. So I read The Bible and inspirational books for a purpose. I prayed for the knowledge to achieve my objectives. Three books played an important part in transmuting my burning desire into reality. They were: (1) The Bible, (2) Think and Grow Rich, and (3) The Secret of the Ages. My greatest inspiration comes from reading The Bible.

“If you know what you want, you are more apt to recognize it when you see it. When you read a book, for example, you will recognize opportunities to help you get what you want.”

S.B. Fuller carried with him the invisible talisman with the initials PMA imprinted on one side and NMA on the other. He turned the PMA side up and amazing things happened. He was able to bring into reality ideas that were formerly mere daydreams.

Meet the most important living person. The day you recognize PMA for yourself is the day that you will meet the most important living person! Who is he? Why, the most important living person is you, as far as you and your life are concerned. Take a look at yourself. Isn’t it true that you carry with you an invisible talisman with the initials PMA emblazoned on one side and NMA on the other? What exactly is this talisman, this force? The talisman is your mind. PMA is a Positive Mental Attitude.

Passing the Torch
by Jim Stovall

 

In 1976, during a routine eye test to enter college, I was diagnosed with a rare disease that would eventually result in my blindness. As a teenager with my whole life ahead of me, the devastation that I experienced was indescribable.

Several weeks later, a family friend called and offered to pick me up and take me with him to an event known as a “Positive Thinking Rally.” I cared nothing about anything having to do with positive thinking, as I was settling into my own form of depression; but for some reason, I agreed to go.

That day, I heard Paul Harvey, Robert Schuller, Zig Ziglar, Art Linkletter, and Ira Hayes. When the lunch hour approached and my host asked if I wanted to leave for lunch or stay and hear a speaker named Dr. Denis Waitley, I was amazed to hear myself say, “I believe I’ll just stay and listen to this guy.”

In the midst of an incredible event with some of the greatest speakers of the 20th century, somehow Dr. Waitley reached forty rows back into that arena and lit a fire in me that has never gone out or even dimmed to this day. His words about the psychology of winning encouraged me to explore the possibilities of my condition instead of the limitations of my pending blindness. We have since formed a close friendship, and he continues to be my mentor to this day.

Dr. Waitley’s inspiring message stayed with me, and although I did eventually lose my sight, I also became a national champion Olympic weightlifter, an Emmy Award winner, the president of a television network, one of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans, and the national Entrepreneur of the Year.

Look around you. Then reach out to someone,
and make a difference in their lives and yours.

The message is clear. In our personal and professional lives, we have the opportunity to reach out to hundreds of people every day—with an encouraging word, an act of kindness, or by simply taking a few moments to truly listen and help. We, as professionals, have a responsibility to positively impact the lives of others not only with our products and services, but by our examples. How much more effective we can be if, from time to time in the midst of our search for excellence, we stop to light a torch and pass it on to another messenger.

Look around you. Then reach out to someone, and make a difference in their lives and yours.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall
