Positive Mental Attitude:
A System of Success

The new class begins this week, sign up today!!!

Dear Student of Napoleon Hill,

This online distance learning course presents and examines the principles of success researched and developed by Dr. Napoleon Hill and others. It provides a framework for students to better understand life’s opportunities and the need for definiteness of purpose.

The class is based on and structured around Hill’s 17 Principles of Success. Each lesson focuses on one principle and contains online reading assignments, points to ponder, chapter quizzes, Napoleon Hill vintage audio and just released video, articles from the Think and Grow Rich and PMA Adviser newsletters, class discussion questions, journal writing assignments and, other activities that help reinforce the principle being studied. Each student in the class has a personalized relationship with a fully accredited and approved instructor for Napoleon Hill Distance Learning Courses. The class concludes with an assignment dealing with an individualized plan for personal success.

It is because we sincerely feel that every reader of Think and Grow Rich should go on into this post graduate course, that we take the liberty here of giving a few brief side lights upon this brilliant work. Napoleon Hill’s Course presents the true Philosophy upon which all lasting success is built. Ideas, when translated into intelligent plans of action, are the beginning of all successful achievement. So this course proceeds to show you how to create practical ideas for every human need. It does it in easy-to-understand lessons. Napoleon Hill spent the better part of twenty-five years in perfecting this Philosophy of Success.

During the long years he has worked on it, some parts or the whole of it, have been reviewed and praised by many of the greatest Americans of our times. Among them are included four Presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Warren G. Harding, Wm. H. Taft; Thomas Edison, Luther Burbank, Wm. J. Wrigley, Alexander Graham Bell, Judge E. H. Gary, Cyrus H. K. Curtis, Edward Bok, E.M. Statler — dozens of glowing names in Politics, Finance, Education, Invention.

Don’t waste your own precious years blindly searching for the hidden road to the heights. Profit by the dearly brought experience of America’s leaders. Over 500 great and prominent men of America were minutely analyzed — their methods, motives, strategy — to find out the secrets that put them on top. No matter whether you are rich or poor — you have one asset as great as the richest man living — and that is TIME. But with each setting sun you become one day older, and have one day less in which to attain the success and wealth you desire. Thousands of progressive people throughout the North American continent have realized this mighty truth, and have sought the help so clearly and inspiringly taught in Napoleon Hill. You cannot afford to let day after day slip into eternity, without getting possession of this course. You will profit greatly from the lessons in Think and Grow Rich. You will take even more brilliant and gratifying rewards from this course. The cost is trifling; the benefits are tremendous.

“Any business whose management has the foresight to adopt a policy which consolidates management, employees and the public it serves in a spirit of team work, provides itself with an insurance policy against failure.” ~Napoleon Hill

“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,

Thinking does not mean idly wasting time. You need to think with a purpose in mind and an end in view: trying to solve a problem. In The Master Mind, Theron Q. Dumont says that thinking is forced upon us when we are deciding on a course to pursue, perhaps a life’s work to take up. This is the kind of thinking that was forced upon us in our younger days when we had to find the solution to a problem in mathematics, or when we tackled psychology in college.

When I talk about thinking, I do not mean holding petty opinions on a particular subject. I mean thinking about significant questions that lie outside the bounds of your narrow personal welfare. This is the kind of thinking that is now so rare—and so badly needed!

Thinking is essential for success but Napoleon Hill goes a step further in saying that we must think accurately. Here in this selection, Napoleon Hill gives us some effective questions we can use to help us think more accurately.

I invite you to go one step further too by enrolling in Napoleon Hill’s distance learning TODAY!

As an added incentive I am offering to those who sign up this month a very special book offer. This book offering can be used as a special gift to a friend or colleague that has not yet heard of Napoleon Hill’s philosophy of success. The Christmas season is coming very soon and you can add this as a special stocking stuffer. I look forward to your participation!

You can choose to get five copies of four titles, or you can choose to get four copies of all five titles. Either way is fine.

These books are hardcover editions.

The accurate thinker scrutinizes everything he reads in books or newspapers, everything he hears, and sees over radio and television. He never accepts any statement as fact merely because he has read it or has heard it spoken. And he knows that statements bearing some portion of facts are often intentionally or carelessly colored, modified and exaggerated to give them an erroneous meaning. Therefore the accurate thinker has definite tests which he applies to the statements of others. If he reads a book, for example, he tests its accuracy by these rules:

a. Is the writer a recognized authority on the subject covered?
b. Did the writer have a motive other than that of imparting accurate information when he wrote the book?
c. Is the writer a professional whose business is that of influencing public opinion?
d. Has the writer a profit interest in the subjects on which he writes?
e. Is the writer a person with sound judgment, and not a fanatic on the subject on which he writes?
f. Are there readily accessible sources from which the writer’s statements may be checked and verified?
g. Do the writer’s statements harmonize with common sense and experience?

Before the accurate thinker accepts the statements of others as facts, he tries to find the motive which prompted the statements, for he knows that no one ever does anything, and seldom says anything, without a definite motive. The accurate thinker examines with care all statements made by people who have obvious motives. He is equally careful about accepting the statements of overzealous people who have the habit of allowing their imaginations to run wild.

Look over carefully the fellow who is trying to sell you his
way of life and make sure his way is as good as your own.

Accurate Thinking
by Larry T. Daniels

The principle of accurate thinking, in the Philosophy of Success, is the most difficult, most interesting, and the most important principle to cover.

Mastering this principle is crucial to our success. We can never achieve anything without learning to think accurately. Our thoughts are the only thing that we have complete control over, and we must choose them carefully.

Accurate thinking is based on two fundamentals: 1. Induction, which is the act or process of reasoning from a part to a whole, from particulars to generals, from the individual to the universal. 2. Deduction, which is the use of inference by which a conclusion necessarily follows from the premises.

We must examine the so-called facts. We must separate the facts from fiction and the opinions of those around us who may be trying to sway us in one direction or the other. We must be the eternal question-asker. Only in this way can we find out if the individual providing the information has an underlying motive.

We must learn to rely on our own judgement. Once we have the facts, it is crucial to separate the facts into two categories: important and unimportant. If the fact directly pertains to our definite major purpose, it is an important fact. If it does not, it is classified as unimportant.

Napoleon Hill teaches, and one of my mentors always suggested, asking the question: “How do you know?” In other words, did someone tell you that, did you read it somewhere, and most importantly did you check to see if it was true before you told anyone about it?

Accurate thinkers allow no one to do their thinking for them. They quietly secure the information needed without tipping off the individual as to why they are seeking this knowledge. Then they carefully review the information to find out if it is fact or fiction.

There are two sources of thought habits: physical heredity and social heredity. Physical heredity is what one inherits from nature and even the character from all the generations of humankind. Social heredity is the environmental influences such as education, religion, politics, experiences, and impulses of thought produced by external stimuli.

Almost all thinking is inspired by social heredity. We must resist the habit of believing something that has little or no evidence. Not only is this foolish, but it can also be dangerous.

The accurate thinker challenges everyone and everything that has the ability to influence him or her. They accept nothing as truth or fact without careful examination. Napoleon Hill said: “If you don’t know, have the courage to admit it and you will be well on the road to learning.”

We must heed Hill’s advice so we can become accurate thinkers and earn the respect of our fellow man, by not being the man who talks just to hear himself talk, but by becoming a man or woman who speaks with authority and conviction on subjects of importance.

Master-Key to Riches

The Master-Key to Riches

by Napoleon Hill

The Master-Key to Riches, a powerful formula for self-improvement, shows you how to harness the powers of your will and mind so that you can achieve mental happiness, business success, spiritual vitality and financial superiority.

Millions of readers all over the world are grateful to Dr. Napoleon hill for his now classic Think and Grow Rich. The Master-Key to Riches provides the key to why some people become successful and how you can become one of them. The Master Key is a marvelous device which, once discovered, may be used to:

• Open the door to sound health
• Reveal the method by which every disadvantage and disappointment can be turned into advantages of priceless value
• Open the door to love and romance
• Renew the spirit of youth
• Lift humble men to positions of power, fame and fortune

Based on the Andrew Carnegie formula for money making, The Master-Key to Riches describes in step-by-step detail the greatest practical philosophy of success. ”Riches means all riches not merely those represented by bank balances and material things,” says Napoleon Hill in the introduction to this master-manual for personal achievement.

This amazing philosophy, culled from the success experiences of many of the world s most powerful and wealthy men, will show you how to succeed in any path of life, whether it be love, wealth, personal satisfaction, faith, or any number of other goals.

The material woven by Napoleon Hill into The Master-Key to Riches has the endorsement of many men whose names have become synonymous with great achievement in the fields of industry, finance and statesmanship.

Andrew Carnegie’s Mental Dynamite

by Napoleon Hill


Based on a series of booklets written by bestselling motivational writer Napoleon Hill, Andrew Carnegie’s Mental Dynamite outlines the importance of three essential principles of success: self-discipline, learning from defeat, and the Golden Rule applied.

In 1908, Napoleon Hill met industrialist Andrew Carnegie for what he believed would be a short interview for an article. Instead, Carnegie spent hours detailing his principles of success to the young magazine reporter. He then challenged Hill to devote 20 years to collating a proven formula that would propel people of all backgrounds to happiness, harmony, and prosperity. Hill accepted the challenge, which he distilled in the perennial bestseller Think and Grow Rich.

Now, more than a century later, the Napoleon Hill Foundation is releasing this epic conversation to remind people that there are simple solutions to the problems troubling us most, everything from relationships and education to homelessness and even democracy. This is revealed in three major principles: self-discipline, which shows how the six departments of the mind may be organized and directed to any end; learning from defeat, which describes how defeat can be made to yield “the seed of an equivalent benefit” and how to turn it into a stepping-stone to greater achievement; and the Golden Rule applied for developing rewarding relationships, peace of mind, and a strengthened consciousness.

Each chapter draws on Carnegie’s words and advice as inspiration, with annotations by Napoleon Hill scholar James Whittaker explaining why they are essential for reaching your goals and prospering—for you, your family, and your community.
