Do not expect something for nothing. Be willing to give an equivalent value for all that you desire, and include in your plans a definite provision for doing so. –Napoleon Hill

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

Dear Readers,

Have you ever felt that you have reached the end of your wits? Like giving up? Ready to throw in the towel? Unsure of where your next path will lead? Depressed because even though you have tried your hardest, you still are fighting an uphill battle? If you have answered "yes" to any of the above questions, welcome to the world.

Knowing that there is a pit in every cherry, bones in the Lake Perch, and husks on the sweet corn doesn't stop us from making a delicious dinner from the ingredients. Likewise, the sidebars, detours, and hassles in life should not deter us from becoming the success we were born to be. Sidestepping the potholes, and enduring the turbulence will bring us to our destination more quickly if we accept the fact that all going is not smooth. Sailing through life problem free does not enhance the journey. Think of those who are fortunate and can supposedly cast their cares aside. Although from the outside looking in, their lives seem rich beyond compare usually the veneer falls away when they are truly tested. The old saying that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence is nothing more than a matter of perspective.

By gaining perspective on our life, we can focus on what truly matters and ignore the rest. All battles need not be fought, nor every concern of the day addressed. By focusing on our passion in life, the sidebars can be intentionally overlooked and more progress made.

In Dr. Hill's Philosophy of Personal Achievement, he authored the Ten Commandments of Success. Read through the commandments daily and this will ensure that you are acquainting yourself with the basic success principles. If you use this list as a guide you will begin to rise to any height of success to which you aspire as long as you do not violate the rights of another human being.

Be Your Very Best Always,
Judy Williamson

The Law of Success


The Commandments of Success
By Napoleon Hill


1. Set your head and heart upon a DEFINITE MAJOR PURPOSE and go to work, right where you stand, to attain it; and begin NOW.

2. Adopt and follow the habit of GOING THE EXTRA MILE by rendering more service and better service than you are paid for, thus enlarging the space you may occupy in the world.

3. Control your MENTAL ATTITUDE and keep it always positive and free from the spirit of defeatism.

4. Apply the GOLDEN RULE in all your human-relationships, no matter what others may do.

5. Learn all that others have discovered in connection with your occupation, job or business, and profit by their experience, thus saving yourself both grief and loss of time.

6. Eat sparingly, of the right combination of foods, and make sure that your "system" is always free from toxic poisoning.

7. Keep your dominating thoughts upon the things you desire and demand of life, and off the things you do not desire.

8. Learn to transmute your sex emotion into the attainment of your DEFINITE MAJOR PURPOSE, at will, remembering that this is a creative force of unknown, unlimited possibilities.

9. If you work for another person, do your work HIS WAY, not yours, and do it in a gracious, pleasing manner.

10. Instead of criticizing others (no matter how much they may deserve it) devote your time to the discovery of traits of your own which should be corrected lest they provide the basis of just criticism against you.

If followed, in a spirit of sincerity, these ten rules will help you to occupy all the space in the world which your talents, education and experience entitle you to enjoy, and they will bring you that sort of peace of mind which surpasseth understanding.

Dependable People

by Jim Stovall

Jim Stovall

The world could be divided very simply into two distinct groups of people. There are people who you can trust to get things done, and there are people you can't.

All of us have a myriad of things to do each day in our personal and professional lives. How we prioritize these items and get them done on a regular basis will determine how successful we will become. Even if you work or live by yourself, you are dependent upon other people for each of the tasks you want to accomplish on your daily list. In some cases, you are waiting on other people to bring you the tools or information you need to move ahead. In other cases, you are delegating responsibilities to others so that you can oversee a project or work on other aspects of it at the same time.

Recently, I went through several weeks of my daily list of tasks and realized that about 80 percent of the items I work on each day are dependent upon others. If the people whom I had delegated items to or venders I had depended upon were totally reliable, my days would be much freer and clear than they are.

Recently, I was talking to a friend about a business professional he was dealing with on a project. He had glowing recommendations for this individual. As he told me the story, it basically boiled down to the fact that he had arranged to have this person perform a job in a certain way, with a particular budget, with a definite deadline. The person he was praising had, indeed, done what he said he was going to do, within the allotted time, and within the prescribed budget.

It is sad to realize that in the world we live in today, if you do what you say you're going to do, in a reliable and dependable fashion, it becomes noteworthy, and you become legendary among your customers or circle of influence.

As you move toward your goals and objectives in life, seek to surround yourself with people whom you can depend on. This will help you avoid the redundancy of asking someone to do something and then being forced to follow up to see if it was actually completed and done properly.

As you go through your day today, strive to be a person who is dependable and reliable, and surround yourself with people who hold themselves to the same standard.

Today's the day!

Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill Napoleon Hill's Road To Success Empowered Millionaire The Little Book of Leadership


Outwitting the Devil

By: Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill wrote this book in 1938, just after publication of his all-time bestseller, Think and Grow Rich. This powerful tale has never been published, considered too controversial by his family and friends.

Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Napoleon Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching personal goals: fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy, as tools of the Devil. These hidden methods of control can lead us to ruin, and Hill reveals the seven principles of good that will allow us to triumph over them and succeed. Annotated and edited for a contemporary audience by Rich Dad, Poor Dad and Three Feet from Gold co-author Sharon Lechter, this book is profound, powerful, resonant, and rich with insight.



Napoleon Hill's Road to Success

By: Napoleon Hill

Hill wrote a series of fifteen articles he titled Billboards on the Road to Success. The articles in Napoleon Hill's Road to Success are exactly as Hill typed them on his old manual typewriter. The articles written more than ninety years ago are as relevant today as when Hill penned them.

The book you are about to read will provide you with valuable writings on success before Hill published his first book. Remember it was 1908 when Hill interviewed Andrew Carnegie, but twenty years before he published his first book. During this twenty year period Hill was writing, speaking, teaching classes on the principles, and publishing his own magazine. Hill published Napoleon Hill's Magazine and Napoleon Hill's Golden Rule Magazine. Articles from these magazines compose the book you are holding and give valuable insight to some of Hill's earliest writings, whether you are a reader of Hill's famous works or this is your first time of reading Hill's writings, you will gain valuable insight that will help you in life.
