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.

“I am a graduate of my Grandfather’s philosophy. I studied Napoleon Hill for years, reading Think and Grow Rich now eight times. I even used his philosophy to change my life —twice! In spite of this, the course pulled the philosophy all together for me and gave me a deeper understanding!”

~ Dr. J.B. Hill
(Napoleon Hill’s Grandson)

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

Dear Readers,

When you have selected your major purpose in life and made plans to reach your goal, you will be less likely to quit if a plan that you previously made fails.

Once you have developed your major purpose in life, the passion it creates will lead you to achieve greater self-discipline, self-reliance, and enthusiasm. Once you begin to work on your plans, you will see personal initiative begin to assist you and recognize that those who have a purpose, a plan, and personal initiative are the true success stories.

Purpose will help you develop a faith, and with that faith, confidence in yourself, and belief, you will succeed in your major purpose in life.

Vision helps us to see things as they can be, not as they are. The Old Testament says, “Without a vision the people perish.” While it is important to study history, I think Thomas Jefferson’s preference for the vision of the future rather than the history of the past reflects the fact that where we are going is much more important than where we have been.

Visualization is “seeing” a positive result and taking action to make that vision become a reality.

Develop a belief such that when you look into the mirror, you can say to yourself, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” Once you believe in yourself, you will take the necessary steps to continue in the right direction and persist until you reach your goal.

In Grow Rich! With Peace of Mind, Napoleon Hill said, “When you speak of failure, you attract failure. When you speak of success, you attract success.”

Napoleon Hill was telling the reader that the people who failed were those who kept on living with their failure. These people lived in the past tense, reliving the pain of what had happened to them in the past.

Those who succeeded spoke in the future tense. Their concentrated attention was in the future. They put failure in the past tense and directed their effort toward the future.


I wish you the best,

I began to plan this book in the closing years of the nineteenth century. It has thus been nearly seventy years in preparation. During those years I have witnessed more vital changes in the affairs of men than had taken place in all the previous years of the history of civilization. I have seen the advent of the automobile, the airplane, radio, television, atomic power, the age of space, industry rise to levels of production beyond nineteenth-century dreams, science and technology enjoy an almost explosive development.

I have seen old nations disappear, new nations arise, jungles give way to paved roads, cities burgeon where sleepy villages once stood. And I have seen people adapt themselves to all these changes and go right on being people, just as they have been for uncounted thousands of years.

You will find this book takes cognizance of the changing world. In speaking of people, however, I speak of the forces which always have moved people and always will. We still see that without sufficient money our lives are mean and hemmed in, so we want success in earning money. And along with money-success we want to be seek peace of mind to make our lives complete. While this book may help you win great wealth, it can help you win peace of mind in abounding measure.

As you will see, when we speak of peace of mind we speak of more than peace as a restful state. Peace of mind is at the same time restful and dynamic, or, we might say, a restful base upon which your life-dynamism stands. It has been called the wealth without which you cannot really be wealthy. It manifests itself in many ways:

It is freedom from negative forces which may take possession of the mind, and from any such negative attitudes as worry and inferiority.
It is freedom from any feeling of want.
It is freedom from self-induced mental and physical ailments of the kind which chronically degrade life.
It is freedom from all fears, especially the seven basic fears we shall expose in all their ugliness.
It is freedom from the common human weakness of seeking something for nothing.
It is possession of the joy of work and accomplishment.
It is the habit of being one’s self and doing one’s own thinking.
It is the habit of checking one’s attitudes toward life and toward one’s fellow men, and always adjusting these attitudes for the better.
It is the habit of helping others to help themselves!
It is freedom from anxiety over what may happen to you after you die.
It is the habit of going the extra mile in all human relationships.
It is the habit of thinking in terms of what you wish to do, instead of thinking of the obstacles which may get in your way.
It is the habit of laughing at the petty misfortunes which may overtake you.
It is the habit of giving before trying to get.

Peace of mind covers a surprisingly broad field, doesn’t it? in every way you use it, it helps you win money-success – and more. Peace of mind helps you live your life on your own terms, in values of your own choosing, so that every day your life grows richer and greater.

This volume is written by a man who has found peace of mind the hard way, by trial and error. Its purpose is to help others find their own peace of mind, along with money-success, by a shorter and less costly route. If some of the episodes seem ultra-personal, please remember that it is the seemingly small events of a man’s life that make up the greater portion of his experiences.

In my own personal experiences, you may see your own. Notice how small experiences conceal both success and failure. They are the first testing ground in which you are given the opportunity to prove that you are the master of your fate, you are the captain of your soul.

Napoleon Hill (1967)

Worry vs. Concern
by Jim Stovall


I believe that concern is worry with action. Worry in and of itself does nothing other than diminish focus. Concern has the potential to release creative solutions to the obstacle that one is facing.

I heard a story about an elderly monk who was training a number of younger monks learning to live their dedicated lives of service. One of his pupils came to him and told him that he was so weighted down with all of his worries that he could not perform his tasks. The old, wise monk said, “I have a gift for you. It was given to me by an old and wise monk when I was your age. This gift has allowed me a life of grace, peace, and focus.”

At that point, the older monk handed the young man a worn and battered wooden box with a slot cut into the lid. The young man barely disguised his doubt when he asked, “What possible good could a box like this do to help me alleviate all of the worries in my life?”

The wise old man explained, “This box is a tool. Like any other tool, in the hands of someone who knows how to use it, it is most useful and effective.” The old man went on to explain that the purpose of the box was to hold all of one’s worries. Throughout the week, when confronted with any trouble, problem, or worry, the old monk would simply write down the issue at hand on a slip of paper and put it into the box. Then, once a week, he would dedicate a morning to going through all of the slips of paper accumulated throughout the week. After 40 years of pursuing this practice, the old monk had discovered that the majority of problems and worries solve themselves long before the week is out.

Problems and worries fall into three categories. One are those that we can do nothing about. Two are those which resolve themselves regardless of our worry. And the third and final group of problems or worries are those that we can affect with our actions. These are the problems where we should focus our energy. Our energy will turn these unproductive worries into productive areas of concern.

Focus and action is the key. Take the worries out of your daily life, and schedule them in once a week. Take your concerns and act upon them immediately.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall
