Positive Mental Attitude:
A System of Success


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.

“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,

In his classic Think and Grow Rich!, first published in 1937, Hill said, “There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.”

Education enables people’s accomplishments, but getting an education does not assure one’s success. The world is full of educated people who do not realize that knowledge is important only when it is applied.

Think and Grow Rich can not only awaken you to a knowledge of your possibilities but create what Dr. Napoleon Hill and other writers have called a burning desire to accomplish the type of great deeds that most people will only dream about. Books can arouse you and others to express the best that is within them rather than being content with lesser accomplishments.

Seek out a mentor. The interesting thing about mentors is that you will find them approachable and willing to share their advice with you. Most successful people have an overwhelming desire to give back to help others. Don’t be afraid to seek help from others, especially in areas where you lack expertise and you know others who have the particular knowledge that you lack.

A person who has Specialized Knowledge plays an extremely valuable part of a Mastermind Alliance. In this lesson Napoleon Hill stresses the importance of not only obtaining Specialized Knowledge but also applying that knowledge to a higher purpose. This is an important key our success!

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green
Executive Director

THERE are two kinds of knowledge. One is general, the other is specialized. General knowledge, no matter how great in quantity or variety it may be, is of but little use in the accumulation of money. The faculties of the great universities possess, in the aggregate, practically every form of general knowledge known to civilization. Most of the professors have but little or no money. They specialize on teaching knowledge, but they do not specialize on the organization, or the use of knowledge.

KNOWLEDGE will not attract money, unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, through practical PLANS OF ACTION, to the DEFINITE END of accumulation of money. Lack of understanding of this fact has been the source of confusion to millions of people who falsely believe that “knowledge is power.” It is nothing of the sort! Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end.

This “missing link” in all systems of education known to civilization today, may be found in the failure of educational institutions to teach their students HOW TO ORGANIZE AND USE KNOWLEDGE AFTER THEY ACQUIRE IT.

Many people make the mistake of assuming that, because Henry Ford had but little “schooling,” he is not a man of “education.” Those who make this mistake do not know Henry Ford, nor do they understand the real meaning of the word “educate.” That word is derived from the Latin word “educo,” meaning to educe, to draw out, to DEVELOP FROM WITHIN.

An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything
he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others. Henry Ford comes well within the meaning of this definition.

Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute DESIRE into its monetary equivalent, you will
require SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE of the service, merchandise, or profession which you intend to offer
in return for fortune. Perhaps you may need much more specialized knowledge than you have the ability
or the inclination to acquire, and if this should be true, you may bridge your weakness through the aid
of your “Master Mind” group.

Andrew Carnegie stated that he, personally, knew nothing about the technical end of the steel business; moreover, he did not particularly care to know anything about it. The specialized knowledge which he required for the manufacture and marketing of steel, he found available through the individual units
of his MASTER MIND GROUP.

The accumulation of great fortunes calls for POWER, and power is acquired through highly organized and intelligently directed specialized knowledge, but that knowledge does not, necessarily, have to be in the possession of the man who accumulates the fortune.

The preceding paragraph should give hope and encouragement to the man with ambition to accumulate a fortune, who has not possessed himself of the necessary “education” to supply such specialized knowledge as he may require. Men sometimes go through life suffering from “inferiority complexes, because they are not men of “education.” The man who can organize and direct a “Master Mind” group of men who possess knowledge useful in the accumulation of money, is just as much a man of education as any man in the group. REMEMBER THIS, if you suffer from a feeling of inferiority, because your schooling has been limited. Thomas A. Edison had only three months of “schooling” during his entire life. He did not lack education, neither did he die poor.

Henry Ford had less than a sixth grade “schooling” but he has managed to do pretty well by himself, financially.

SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE is among the most plentiful, and the cheapest forms of service which may be had! If you doubt this, consult the payroll of any university.

If you have the IMAGINATION, and seek a more profitable outlet for your personal services, this suggestion may be the stimulus for which you have been searching. The IDEA is capable of yielding an
income far greater than that of the “average” doctor, lawyer, or engineer whose education required several years in college. The idea is saleable to those seeking new positions, in practically all positions calling for managerial or executive ability, and those desiring re-arrangement of incomes in their present positions.

There is no fixed price for sound IDEAS!

If you have IMAGINATION this chapter may present you with an idea sufficient to serve as the beginning of the riches you desire. Remember, the IDEA is the main thing. Specialized knowledge may be found just around the corner—any corner!

What Do You Know Now?
by Jim Stovall

 

Have you ever caught yourself or someone else saying, “If I had only known then what I know now…”?
All of us, at one time or another, have realized that sometime in the past, we were in possession of some very valuable information; but we may not have known it was valuable information at the time. Whether it was the hot new stock that we could have bought for a song several years ago or the cheap land right across the street from the newest mega shopping mall, hindsight is always 20/20.

Everything makes sense and is totally clear in retrospect; however, you can’t drive through life while looking in the rearview mirror. While the view in the rearview mirror may be perfect, the result will inevitably be disastrous. No matter how frightening, murky, or uncertain, we have to make our decisions and live our lives in the future.

Genius is often simply a matter of looking at things
a little bit differently than the rest of the world.

If we can accept the fact that many times in our lives we have been in possession of extremely valuable information whether we knew it or not, we can also accept the fact that we are, right now, in possession of some very valuable information that may be unbelievably profitable or beneficial in the near future. You will either take advantage of this knowledge now or someday you will look back on today with the proverbial statement, “If I had only known then what I know now….”

Tomorrow’s “then” is today’s “right now.” The question is not whether you do or don’t have the information. The question is, can you recognize it and act upon it? Wisdom and leadership come from recognizing, anticipating, and acting on facts and details that others overlook.

Genius is often simply a matter of looking at things a little bit differently than the rest of the world, or simply recognizing that there are many treasures all around us that are available to anyone who will recognize them. Don’t wait until it’s too late to recognize your treasures. Look, listen, and act.

Today’s the day!

Master-Key to Riches

Self-Confidence Formula

by Napoleon Hill

Your formula to build a strong sense of self-worth so that you can better recognize opportunity, take action on your dreams, and enhance your resilience.

A lack of self-confidence is one of the greatest maladies of today’s world, one that is responsible for the rampant helplessness, lack of self-control, aimlessness, procrastination, and despair that characterize modern society. But as the venerable steel magnate Andrew Carnegie emphasized to Hill, “Confidence is a state of mind, necessary to succeed, and the starting point of developing self-confidence is definiteness of purpose.”

The time for self-doubt and self-criticism is over. Your faith in yourself and your abilities determines whether you fail or succeed. Napoleon Hill’s Self-Confidence Formula enables you to boost your self-confidence through the application of Hill’s strategies for controlling your thoughts. By implementing these principles, you will not only be able to operate at a higher plane of thought and action—attracting more opportunities, gaining influence, and strengthening relationships—but you will also be able to instill this critical quality in others.

Napoleon Hill’s Self-Confidence Formula gives you the keys to success and fulfillment by equipping you to:

• unlearn fears, insecurities, and limitations acquired in childhood and adolescence
• condition your mind to believe in the certainty of your success
• take bold, confident action on your definite chief aim
• conquer your inferiority complex through the mastermind principle
• build the self-reliance and self-esteem of today’s youth

You are now on the journey to confident, purposeful living. As you implement Hill’s principles, you will cultivate a state of mind primed to accept the abundance reserved for you.
