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

Dear Readers,

W. Clement Stone’s own background provided few clues that one day he would become so wealthy that he could give away several hundred million dollars to charitable causes before he died at the age of 100.

Stone grew up on the Chicago’s rough South Side with his mother, who became a widow before Stone began school. At age 6, Stone was out on the streets of Chicago selling newspapers to contribute to the household income. By the age of 13, he owned his own newsstand. Stone’s life shows the lessons he learned from experience and books while he was growing up.

Stone read Think and Grow Rich! by Napoleon Hill when it was published in 1937. He gave his employees the book, and his insurance firm grew from a $100 investment to a billion-dollar business. Stone spent more than 60 years praising Think and Grow Rich! and its positive effect. He even used as his company’s stock symbol the letters PMA, for positive mental attitude, one of the principles of success.

Napoleon Hill’s collaboration with W. Clement Stone was essential in implementing Positive Mental Attitude as an important principle of success.

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green

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 (positive mental attitude) emblazoned on one side, and NMA (negative mental attitude) 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.

Now the important thing to notice here is that S.B. Fuller started life with fewer advantages than most of us have. But he chose a big goal and headed for it. Of course, the choice of goal was individual. In these times and in this country you still have your personal right to say: “This is what I choose. This is what I want most to accomplish.” And unless your goal is against the laws of God or society, you can achieve it. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by trying. Success is achieved and maintained by those who keep trying.

What you try for is up to you. Not everyone would care to be an S.B. Fuller, responsible for large manufacturing concerns. Not everyone would choose to pay the costly price of being a great artist. To many, the riches of life are quite different. A skill in day-to-day living which adds up to a happy, love-filled life is success. You can have this and other riches too. The choice is yours.

But whether success to you means becoming rich as it did to S.B. Fuller, or the discovery of a new element in chemistry, or the creation of a piece of music, or the growing of a rose, or the nurturing of a child—no matter what success means to you—the invisible talisman with the initials PMA emblazoned on one side and NMA on the other can help you achieve it. You attract the good and desirable with PMA. You repel them with NMA.

Create a Culture of Success with a
Positive Mental Attitude

by Kim Coots

 

As a business leader for the past twenty-five years, I’ve had the privilege and drive to learn everything I can about building and leading a great company that not only makes a profit but also positively impacts the lives of others.

One of the most profound teachings that have shaped my life, leadership, and how I train other leaders is with Napoleon Hill’s principle of Positive Mental Attitude.

The effect that your mental attitude has on the quality of your life, career, relationships, finances, and health is extremely powerful. Essentially, your mental attitude determines how you relate to and experience life, as well as the influence and impact you make in the lives of others.

Your mind is the only thing that you can control. When you take control of our mind and direct it toward desirable goals with a positive mental attitude, you benefit from its many rewards, including a success consciousness, quality of life, peace of mind, healthier relationships, enjoyment in your work, and more.

Likewise, when you neglect the discipline to control your mind and allow yourself to drift into operating from a negative mental attitude, you experience its penalties, including anxiety, fear, stress, frustration, ill health, and other destructive results.

The Power of PMA in Business

As leaders, we have the power to influence many people, and when we do so with a positive mental attitude, we can create a significant positive impact in the world.

My passion for creating a positive culture for success came from the wisdom I gained through experiencing leadership teams of businesses that are effectively implementing the PMA principle, as well as those who are not.

I began my career on the leadership team of a company ranked Inc. 500’s 26th fastest growing company in America. The business grew quickly, and we focused on reacting to handling the growth with little attention to the mindset we were operating from to create it.

Stress, anxiety, people issues, and other dysfunctions were prevalent, but by the time we realized it and tried to shift the culture, it was too late. We could not sustain the success we achieved, and we endured the penalties of not implementing the PMA principle. We were forced to sell the company to a competitor.

Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed many companies struggling with achieving their goals, being profitable, and attracting and retaining the right people on their team. They focused so much attention on systems they need in business but neglected to implement the PMA principle that is critical to shaping the culture for success.

I’ve also witnessed the success of organizations that do implement the PMA principle, creating an award-winning culture that their team thrives in, achieving their goals, sustaining profitability, and enjoying the rewards of the PMA principle.

Creating a Positive Culture of Success with PMA

A positive mental attitude is at the heart of creating a culture of success. When each member of the leadership team in a business organization practices the PMA principle, they can collectively function as a team that attracts and retains the right employees, effectively solves issues, and efficiently implements the systems to achieve goals.

Start by taking an open and honest look at your mental attitude and begin transforming anything that holds you back from authentically living from a positive mental attitude. Watch and enjoy the profound, positive ripple effect you make!
