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

Dear Readers,

At one time, Mr. Stone was chairman of the board of the Napoleon Hill Foundation. He was in his nineties. Always dressed as a successful businessman, Mr. Stone was an imposing figure.

I had read his book The Success System That Never Fails. This is a must-read for anyone who is interested in how to be successful. Mr. Stone grew up on Chicago’s tough South Side, lost his father when he was quite young and was out on the street selling newspapers at the age of 6. He was often beaten by other boys, but he persisted and began to accept responsibility for his future at a very early age.

From being around Mr. Stone (which I considered a privilege), I learned that he spoke of decisions. Decisions were important, but once a decision was reached, then a proper course of action was fundamental to success. You would get the same advice from Stone’s writings: action was critical if you were to travel the success journey.

If you fail to take responsibility for your success, your conversations will be filled with talk of blame, failure, envy, and other negative terms that will take you farther down the road of failure.

You can have high goals, develop good plans and have a pleasing personality and many other desirable qualities. But to be truly successful, you must have discipline. Without discipline, you will be among the majority who will look over their lives and think about “what could have been.”

Positive Mental Attitude: A System of Self-Management Napoleon Hill’s Distance Learning Course

Each principle that you cover in this course will encourage you and help you stay on track with your firm decision to reach your desired goals. Have a positive outlook, make a firm decision and know that you can do it!

DECISION
by Napoleon Hill

 

ACCURATE analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure, disclosed the fact that LACK OF DECISION was near the head of the list of the 30 major causes of FAILURE. This is no mere statement of a theory—it is a fact.

PROCRASTINATION, the opposite of DECISION, is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer.

You will have an opportunity to test your capacity to reach quick and definite DECISIONS when you finish reading this book, and are ready to begin putting into ACTION the principles which it describes.

Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million-dollar mark, disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of REACHING DECISIONS PROMPTLY, and of changing these decisions SLOWLY, if, and when they were changed. People who fail to accumulate money, without exception have the habit of reaching decisions, IF AT ALL, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.

One of Henry Ford’s most outstanding qualities is his habit of reaching decisions quickly and definitely, and changing them slowly. This quality is so pronounced in Mr. Ford, that it has given him the reputation of being obstinate. It was this quality which prompted Mr. Ford to continue to manufacture his famous Model “T” (the world’s ugliest car), when all of his advisors, and many of the purchasers of the car, were urging him to change it.

Perhaps, Mr. Ford delayed too long in making the change, but the other side of the story is, that Mr. Ford’s firmness of decision yielded a huge fortune, before the change in model became necessary. There is but little doubt that Mr. Ford’s habit of definiteness of decision assumes the proportion of obstinacy, but this quality is preferable to slowness in reaching decisions and quickness in changing them.

The majority of people who fail to accumulate money sufficient for their needs, are, generally easily influenced by the “opinions” of others. They permit the newspapers and the “gossiping” neighbors to do their “thinking” for them. “Opinions” are the cheapest commodities on earth. Everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by “opinions” when you reach DECISIONS, you will not succeed in any undertaking, much less in that of transmuting YOUR OWN DESIRE into money.

If you are influenced by the opinions of others, you will have no DESIRE of your own.

Keep your own counsel, when you begin to put into practice the principles described here, by reaching your own decisions and following them. Take no one into your confidence, EXCEPT the members of your “Master Mind” group, and be very sure in your selection of this group, that you choose ONLY those who will be in COMPLETE SYMPATHY AND HARMONY WITH YOUR PURPOSE.

Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning, but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.

You have a brain and mind of your own. USE IT, and reach your own decisions. If you need facts or information from other people, to enable you to reach decisions, as you probably will in many instances; acquire these facts or secure the information you need quietly, without disclosing your purpose.

It is characteristic of people who have but a smattering or a veneer of knowledge to try to give the impression that they have much knowledge. Such people generally do TOO MUCH talking, and TOO LITTLE listening. Keep your eyes and ears wide open—and your mouth CLOSED, if you wish to acquire the habit of prompt DECISION. Those who talk too much do little else. If you talk more than you listen, you not only deprive yourself of many opportunities to accumulate useful knowledge, but you also disclose your PLANS and PURPOSES to people who will take great delight in defeating you, because they envy you.

Remember, also, that every time you open your mouth in the presence of a person who has an abundance of knowledge, you display to that person, your exact stock of knowledge, or your LACK of it! Genuine wisdom is usually conspicuous through modesty and silence.

Keep in mind the fact that every person with whom you associate is, like yourself, seeking the opportunity to accumulate money. If you talk about your plans too freely, you may be surprised when you learn that some other person has beaten you to your goal by PUTTING INTO ACTION AHEAD OF YOU, the plans of which you talked unwisely.

Let one of your first decisions be to KEEP A CLOSED MOUTH AND OPEN EARS AND EYES.

As a reminder to yourself to follow this advice, it will be helpful if you copy the following epigram in large letters and place it where you will see it daily.

“TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, BUT FIRST SHOW IT.”

This is the equivalent of saying that “deeds, and not words, are what counts most.”

Hail, Mr. Churchill
by Jim Stovall

 

Recently, I read a book in which the author attempted to explore and reveal the greatest individual of the 20th century. While there were a number of powerful and influential people suggested—such as Thomas Edison, Charles Lindbergh, Neil Armstrong, and many others—the argument was made that many of these individuals’ breakthroughs or achievements were simultaneously being sought by other people of the era. For example, a number of great inventors around the world were working on projects similar to those of Thomas Edison. Therefore, presumably, many of Edison’s inventions might have been brought to the marketplace a few months or years later if Thomas Edison hadn’t succeeded first. There were a number of other individuals ready, willing, and able to make a trans-Atlantic flight or moon landing if Mr. Lindbergh or Mr. Armstrong hadn’t gotten there first.

The argument can certainly be made that Winston Churchill stood alone in history as the person uniquely qualified and positioned to preserve the free world. One of my favorite authors, Louis L’Amour, often said, “A person can only be judged against the backdrop of the time and place in which they lived.” Tom Brokaw, in his series of books dealing with the Greatest Generation pointed out that the individuals who made up what we call the Greatest Generation were great only because history required them to be so.

I have often wondered what Winston Churchill would think about our world here in the 21st century. One of his quotes seems appropriate for our day and time, “It takes courage to stand up and be heard, but it also takes courage to sit down and listen.” We think of great orators or conversationalists as individuals who are skilled in verbally presenting their position and persuading others. There can be no oration or conversation without someone listening.

My late, great friend and colleague, Dr. Stephen Covey, often said, “Seek to understand before seeking to be understood.” Sir Winston Churchill will go down in history as the individual who made some of the greatest speeches at the time when the world most needed to hear his message. If he were with us here and now, I believe he might just sit and listen.

As you go through your day today, listen first before you consider talking.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall
