Politeness usually begins at home or it doesn’t begin at all.


Politeness to others is usually born out of respect for the individual, which you learn as a child. When you are treated with respect by other members of the family, you learn to respect them as well. The self-esteem that results from being recognized as a unique person by the people who matter most to you helps you develop the confidence necessary to succeed later in life. Politeness and consideration for others are habits that — once developed — usually stay with you for a lifetime. While common courtesy may seem relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of things, it is a reflection of more basic values. More important, if you develop the habit of respecting others, you are likely to command respect from them.

Napoleon Hill's Pathways to Peace of Mind
Paperback available – February 21, 2023

From the Napoleon Hill Foundation comes a collection of never-before-published writings from Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich and Outwitting the Devil, on obtaining the greatest of all the riches available to human beings--peace of mind.

Although Napoleon is famous for his insight on building financial wealth, he ultimately believed that the greatest success in life was not monetary and that true riches came from the peace of mind one achieves by helping others. The writings contained in this book will guide you toward this priceless asset so you can enjoy:

  • Mastery over all forms of worry
  • Freedom from fear and self-doubt
  • Control over one's thoughts
  • The ability to close the door on the sorrows of the past
  • The magic power of belief
  • And much more!
Included is a manuscript that was discovered by J. B. Hill, Napoleon's grandson and a trustee of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, that had been given to his father in the 1950s. Titled "How to Get Peace of Mind," it was intended to be released as a series of newspaper columns but for reasons unknown was never published. It is presented here for the first time, along with a previously unpublished excerpt from an unfinished autobiographical work by Napoleon written in 1947 and several editorial essays written by Napoleon and published in 1919 and 1920 in his magazine, Hill's Golden Rule. All explore the subject of attaining peace of mind. The final chapter in the book features a previously unpublished transcript of a 1948 radio program in which Napoleon disclosed what single ability is essential to achieving success and happiness.

There is no greater freedom than that which peace of mind brings. Chart your own course to a serene mindset with help from Napoleon Hill's Pathways to Peace of Mind.

Outwitting the Devil: The Complete Text, Reproduced from Napoleon Hill's Original Manuscript, Including Never-Before Published Content


Following the success of his 1937 landmark bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote Outwitting the Devil, an exposé on the methods the Devil uses to ensnare and control the minds of human beings. Exploring the innermost depths of the psychology of motivation to understand why so many individuals, including himself, cannot find the initiative and courage they need to consistently implement the philosophy of individual achievement, Hill went so far as to interview the Devil himself. The resulting confession from the Devil made this book so controversial as to remain unpublished for over 70 years. Now it is your turn to break the Devil s code and free yourself from the hidden methods of control that lead to ruin.
 
In this reproduction of the complete text of Hill s original manuscript is laid out the exact nature of the power by which the Devil disarms human beings with fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy so that they do not reach their full potential. This is the same power that paralyzed millions of individuals with fear and despondency during the Great Depression and continues to hold people back from their dreams. Complacency and mediocrity are not the root issue; they are symptoms of deeper ills that we are conditioned by society to accept. But you must open your mind to acquire knowledge and consider facts that might not harmonize with your personal beliefs in order to access a greater truth that will, as Hill said in his original preface, bring harmony out of chaos in this age of frustration and fear.
 
If you have been the victim of lost courage, weakened enthusiasm, and lack of self-discipline if you are demoralized and plagued by fear, anxiety, overwhelm, or apathy the seven principles to freedom detailed in this book herald your redemption. You will finally become independent of the causes of failure and misery, break the bonds of destructive habits, and unlock the secret of a natural law as significant as the law of gravity so that you can outwit the devil once and for all.
