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

Dear Readers,

Napoleon Hill published his all-time bestselling book, Think and Grow Rich! in 1937. This book has probably influenced more people than any other so-called self-help book ever written. It has certainly influenced me. The title itself had a tremendous effect on the book’s success. Hill chose Think and Grow Rich! as the title after he had completed the manuscript and sent it to the publisher. No other title could have had the same positive results as Think and Grow Rich! The title tends to jump out at you, and how could anyone who was looking for success not be attracted to it? I think the answer to the attraction that the title Think and Grow Rich! has to a potential buyer of books on self-help, motivation, or a desire to become wealthy is obvious.

 

The book was such a success that even though it was published at the height of the Great Depression, was priced at a then hefty price of $2.50, and lacked the type of advertising that is available today, it sold out in a matter of weeks. It was printed again with a larger quantity and quickly sold out again. Think and Grow Rich! was printed a total of three times in 1937 and has been continuously in print ever since.

Most so-called bestsellers are available in retail bookstores for a period of two years or less, and if you want a particular book with a publication date several years back, you must do a book search to get a copy.

Napoleon Hill’s choice has had overwhelming positive results, and its benefit is still being felt today, not only in the United States, but all over the world. Think and Grow Rich! is one of the most copied titles of all time.

As we go through this time of crisis with the current pandemic and economic insecurity, we are given an opportunity to listen to our “other self.” We are a very outward-focused society in normal circumstances and this current situation has provided us with a time to look deep into ourselves. This is a good opportunity to tune in to the “other self” that Napoleon Hill often writes about. No one likes uncertainty but if there is a seed of equal or greater benefit this may just be it.

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green

Think and Grow Rich

Preface by Napoleon Hill

 

You have been disappointed, you have undergone defeat during the depression, you have felt the great heart within you crushed until it bled. Take courage, for these experiences have tempered the spiritual metal of which you are made—they are assets of incomparable value.

Remember, too, that all who succeed in life get off to a bad start, and pass through many heartbreaking struggles before they “arrive.” The turning point in the lives of those who succeed, usually comes at the moment of some crisis, through which they are introduced to their “other selves.”

John Bunyan wrote the Pilgrim’s Progress, which is among the finest of all English literature, after he had been confined in prison and sorely punished, because of his views on the subject of religion.

O. Henry discovered the genius which slept within his brain, after he had met with great misfortune, and was confined in a prison cell, in Columbus, Ohio. Being FORCED, through misfortune, to become acquainted with his “other self,” and to use his IMAGINATION, he discovered himself to be a great author instead of a miserable criminal and outcast. Strange and varied are the ways of life, and stranger still are the ways of Infinite Intelligence, through which men are sometimes forced to undergo all sorts of punishment before discovering their own brains, and their own capacity to create useful ideas through imagination.

Edison, the world’s greatest inventor and scientist, was a “tramp” telegraph operator, he failed innumerable times before he was driven, finally, to the discovery of the genius which slept within his brain.

Charles Dickens began by pasting labels on blacking pots. The tragedy of his first love penetrated the depths of his soul, and converted him into one of the world’s truly great authors. That tragedy produced, first, David Copperfield, then a succession of other works that made this a richer and better world for all who read his books. Disappointment over love affairs, generally has the effect of driving men to drink, and women to ruin; and this, because most people never learn the art of transmuting their strongest emotions into dreams of a constructive nature.

Helen Keller became deaf, dumb, and blind shortly after birth. Despite her greatest misfortune, she has written her name indelibly in the pages of the history of the great. Her entire life has served as evidence that no one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.

Robert Burns was an illiterate country lad, he was cursed by poverty, and grew up to be a drunkard in the bargain. The world was made better for his having lived, because he clothed beautiful thoughts in poetry, and thereby plucked a thorn and planted a rose in its place.

Booker T. Washington was born in slavery, handicapped by race and color. Because he was tolerant, had an open mind at all times, on all subjects, and was a DREAMER, he left his impress for good on an entire race.

Beethoven was deaf, Milton was blind, but their names will last as long as time endures, because they dreamed and translated their dreams into organized thought.

Before passing to the next chapter, kindle anew in your mind the fire of hope, faith, courage, and toler-ance. If you have these states of mind, and a working knowledge of the principles described, all else that you need will come to you, when you are READY for it. Let Emerson state the thought in these words, “Every proverb, every book, every byword that belongs to thee for aid and comfort shall surely come home through open or winding passages. Every friend whom not thy fantastic will, but the great and tender soul in thee craveth, shall lock thee in his embrace.”

There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.

Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. A great poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines:

“I bargained with Life for a penny
And Life would pay no more
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
“For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
“I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”

The Corona Concepts
by Jim Stovall

 

Whenever I am confronted with a crisis, I always try to invoke The Serenity Prayer. This particular prayer has a great balance in that it calls for strength for those things we can change, acceptance for those things we can’t change, and wisdom to know the difference.

For over 20 years, I have written these weekly columns that are read by countless people around the world in newspapers, magazines, and online publications. Rarely do I have the opportunity to give specific advice as most challenges are regional in nature and dependent upon various government entities and local conditions. However, the corona pandemic seems to find us all in the same boat.

I believe there are three concepts we can all embrace and apply relating to the coronavirus that will serve us well.

  • Follow the rules. One of my favorite definitions of maturity states that maturity is the point in time when we realize that the universal rules apply to us. Medical and governmental officials around the world have offered a number of directives relating to this virus. I believe everyone can agree, we should all wash our hands regularly, apply hand sanitizer often, eat healthily, get some exercise, and be sure to get adequate sleep. Additionally, we should avoid crowds whenever possible and stay calm. The advice to stay calm is not meant to minimize the crisis or its potential impact. It is instead, arguably, the single best thing you can do to boost your immune system. Worry and stress suppress your body’s ability to fight off all sorts of infectious diseases. Once you have done all that you can do, remaining calm and stress-free is a great prescription.
  • It’s not all about you. During this crisis, there will be people isolated in hospitals, nursing homes, and quarantined at their residence. A quick phone call, email, or encouraging greeting card can make a lot of difference. You have friends, neighbors and associates who may need groceries, water, prescriptions, or a variety of other necessities. You can either help them get the things they need or help them get where they need to go. Many businesses and workers are suffering. Find ways that you and your company can help them. Remember, a crisis gives us all the opportunity to serve and succeed.
  • Take advantage of the situation. Many of us will be isolated or out of our normal routine for a number of weeks or months. You can either tread water during this time or you can make quantum leaps ahead in your personal or professional life. Think of those New Year’s resolutions you have abandoned or things you always wanted to do but never quite had the time. This is a great opportunity to eat healthy, start a new exercise regimen, read books, watch documentaries, begin journalling, complete an online course, or a myriad of other activities that can allow you to go from victim to victor.

Please understand I realize this is a life and death health crisis for many people, and in many cases there’s nothing we can do to change that. However, while we don’t always have a choice in what happens to us, we can always choose what we are going to do about it.

As you go through your day today, make the best of a bad situation.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall
