Success Habits
by Napoleon Hill

Never-before-published wisdom from famed self-help author, Napoleon Hill


Napoleon Hill, the legendary author of the classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, has been immortalized for his contributions to the self-help genre. 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. From the importance of having Definiteness of Purpose to the inexorable influence of the Cosmic Habit Force, Hill’s principles offer a new way of thinking about intention, self-discipline, and the way we lead our lives.

Originally a series of radio talks delivered in Paris, Missouri, Success Habits is filled with personal anecdotes and stories and is written in an approachable, conversational style. Hill’s insights apply to every facet of life, inspiring readers to leverage his principles to achieve their own aspirations and create the successful lives they have always dreamed of.

(Napoleon Hill’s Grandson)

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

Dear Readers,

My late friend Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, a noted author, world-class speaker, and owner of Executive Books, was a lover, collector, and seller of books. Charlie was so influenced by books that he gave away thousands and thousands of them. When he came across what he considered to be a book with a valuable message, he was likely to send his friends not just a free copy of the book, but a case or more for distribution so that others might benefit from the message.

Charlie also proved his love for books by donating to Lancaster Bible College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where the library is named in his honor.

Someone once said that leaders are readers, and when he said that, he sent a powerful message. As proof of that message, Charlie Jones’s Life Is Tremendous has sold more than two million copies and is a must-read in the personal development field.

Charlie’s daughter Tracey took up his legacy and she is now president of Tremendous Leadership. It is with great pride that I share an excerpt from her book, Beyond Tremendous.


I wish you the best,
Don Green
Executive Director

by Napoleon Hill


We who are in this race for riches, should be encouraged to know that this changed world in which we live is demanding new ideas, new ways of doing things, new leaders, new inventions, new methods of teaching, new methods of marketing, new books, new literature, new features for the radio, new ideas for moving pictures. Back of all this demand for new and better things, there is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning DESIRE to possess it.

The business depression marked the death of one age, and the birth of another. This changed world requires practical dreamers who can, and will put their dreams into action. The practical dreamers have always been, and always will be the pattern-makers of civilization.

We who desire to accumulate riches, should remember the real leaders of the world always have been men who harnessed, and put into practical use, the intangible, unseen forces of unborn opportunity, and have converted those forces, (or im-pulses of thought), into sky-scrapers, cities, factories, airplanes, automobiles, and every form of convenience that makes life more pleasant.

Tolerance, and an open mind are practical necessities of the dreamer of today. Those who are afraid of new ideas are doomed before they start. Never has there been a time more favorable to pioneers than the present. True, there is no wild and woolly west to be conquered, as in the days of the Covered Wagon; but there is a vast business, financial, and industrial world to be remolded and redirected along new and better lines.

In planning to acquire your share of the riches, let no one influence you to scorn the dreamer. To win the big stakes in this changed world, you must catch the spirit of the great pioneers of the past, whose dreams have given to civilization all that it has of value, the spirit which serves as the life-blood of our own country—your opportunity and mine, to develop and market our talents.

Let us not forget, Columbus dreamed of an Unknown world, staked his life on the existence of such a world, and discovered it!

Copernicus, the great astronomer, dreamed of a multiplicity of worlds, and revealed them! No one denounced him as “impractical” after he had triumphed. Instead, the world worshipped at his shrine, thus proving once more that “SUCCESS REQUIRES NO APOLOGIES, FAILURE PERMITS NO ALIBIS.”

If the thing you wish to do is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it! Put your dream across, and never mind what “they” say if you meet with temporary defeat, for “they,” perhaps, do not know that EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALENT SUCCESS.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It and
I Feel Tremendous!

by Tracey Jones


“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying
alive, but in finding something to live for.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky,
The Brothers Karamazov

According to the ancient Mayans, the world would end on Friday, December 21st, 2012. Well, that day came and went and we’re still here. Even if it had happened, though, I’d have been cool with it. In fact, it would have been a tremendous time to go! I had never previously felt this way, but that was before I lived every breath with a committed purpose beating in my heart and pushing me forward.

My life previously consisted of working to make money to live a certain lifestyle, to solve problems and fix things, and to take care of people. And while these are all noble desires and outcomes, in the grand scheme of things they didn’t amount to a hill of beans. Money talks, but it doesn’t say much. No matter how many problems you solve, there’ll always be more. And the only person who can really take care of someone is themselves! Not to say that I wasn’t on a good path and did good deeds, it’s just that I wasn’t on THE path that mattered most: the purpose-driven path.

Then I threw everything I knew away and charged full-bore toward a singular goal: to change the world one book at a time. I no longer care about job titles, active security clearances, living in a hip town, or even having a social life. I no longer worry about the trouble others have gotten themselves and their companies into by not doing the right things, and I have no desire to come in and fix them. I no longer allow people who will not accept responsibility for their attitudes, no matter how many hardships they’ve endured, to be a part of my life. You see, I just can’t anymore. I can’t do that and be true to my purpose.

If I’m going to persuade others that everything we need to live like there’s no tomorrow is found in the people we meet and the books we read, I’ve got to live it. And if the world really does end, I am perfectly fine with that because I am no longer trying to become something in the future; I am finally in tune with being what I am meant to be right here right now. And if the universe decides that I’ve finally achieved total consciousness and it’s time to wrap up this leg of the journey, then so be it! Has it been easy now that I’ve dialed into living each day as if it’s my last? No! I’ve lost some of the people I’ve held nearest and dearest—some of them were family members.

I’ve truly realized that the only person who can do that is myself. I have added more adopted pets into my life, which has made it richer because they reflect unconditional love. My purpose is fed by allowing only the best books and people into my life. So every day, I dine as if it’s my “last meal.”

Bring on the end of the world as we know it! I not only feel fine, I feel tremendous!! And I know the universe is smiling down on me knowing that I can finally exist within it without feeling the angst of the perpetual question, “what the heck am I supposed to be doing with my life and when am I going to get off my butt and do it??”

Goals are great, mentors are marvelous, and dreams are divine. But until you dial into living your life with an all-encompassing purpose, you’ll always be hoping you have more days ahead until you can get it right. Frank Tyger said, “Your future depends on many things, but mostly on you.” If you are at peace with yourself and in tune with your purpose, the timing of the end of the world matters not.
