Success is a system and not a secret is what I have learned through Napoleon Hill and the Foundation that was created in his name. I have learned that like attracts like and that thoughts become things because what we think about we become. Through our imagination we create plans and put them into action. We go the extra mile in all our interactions. Our motto is, “Do it Now!” The foundational principles for outstanding success are:

1. Definiteness of Purpose
2. Mastermind Alliance
3. Applied Faith
4. Habit of Going The Extra Mile

Napoleon Hill believed in a Master Mind that used the collective consciousness of its members to actively solve problems and create new ideas and plans. It begins with a definite purpose rendered with better service than that for which one is paid, done in a positive mental attitude, and with a creative imagination that is applied with faith. Remember, faith without action is merely a wish.

A definite purpose backed by applied faith, is a form of wisdom, and wisdom in action, produces positive results.

Decide now what you want out of life and what you will give in return for it. Begin right now where you stand. Then as you progress other and better means will be revealed to you.

If you do not have a definite purpose then make your definite purpose to find your definite purpose, date it, and sign it. Dr. Joe Dudley used a 6 hour reading program of Think and Grow Rich once a week to create a very successful international company known as Dudley, Inc.

Napoleon Hill, through his twenty-odd years of creating this philosophy, noticed that 5% of the population that were succeeding had a definite purpose and a definite plan to achieve their aim.

If you are a true student of Hill’s philosophy, become a master by teaching it to others. Thereby you guarantee your compensation in advance. It is well know that the “teacher” learns the lesson better than the students. So, come join us in the Mastermind Online and become a contributor. Experience the exponential growth you can tap. Have faith in the fact that you can give people the opportunity and the knowledge to improve their lot in life just by sharing what you know. This can be profoundly liberating. The Mastermind Online membership desires to put faith into practice so that we may inspire others to take control of their destinies. What a beautiful world it would be if we all had a labor of love to follow.

Through the habit of going the extra mile you can attract to you whatever you desire. Help enough people get what they want and you will automatically get what you want.

10 Major Factors for Confidence
by Napoleon Hill

(pgs. 131-132: How to Sell Your Way Through Life, 1955, Ralston Publishing Co., Cleveland, Ohio.)

By careful observation of thousands of sales people from whom I have learned all that I know about selling, I discovered that ten major factors enter into the development of confidence. They are:

    (1) Follow the habit of rendering more service and better service than you are paid to render.
    (2) Enter into no transaction which does not benefit, as nearly alike as possible, everyone it affects.
    (3) Make no statement which you do not believe to be true, no matter what temporary advantages a falsehood might seem to offer.
    (4) Have a sincere desire in your heart to be of the greatest possible service to the largest number of people.
    (5) Cultivate a wholesome admiration for people; like them better than you like money!
    (6) Do you best to live as well as preach your own philosophy of business. Actions speak louder than words!
    (7) Accept no favors, large or small, without giving favors in return.
    (8) Ask nothing of any person without believing that you have a right to that for which you ask.
    (9) Enter into no arguments with any person over trivial or non-essential details.
    (10)Spread the sunshine of good cheer wherever and whenever you can. No man trusts a joy-killer!

 

Formula for Self – Confidence

  1. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, aggresive,  continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.
  2. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental pictures of this person.
  3. I know though the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression though some practial means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demading of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
  4. I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
  5. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.

I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.

  1. Positive mental attitude

    All riches begin with a state of mind. And remember, it is the one thing over which you have sole control. This is the starting point of all riches, whether they be material or intangible. It attracts true friendship and the hope of future achievement. You labor in the highest plane of your soul, creating. It attracts harmony in home relationships and friendly cooperation. It frees you from fear and provides you with the riches of enthusiasm. It inspires you with the riches of song and laughter, which indicate your state of mind. The joy of knowing that the mind can and will serve any desired end if one will take possession of it and fuel it with a definite purpose. It elicits the riches of play through which one may lay aside all of the burdens of life and become as a little child again. It puts you in touch with one’s “other self” – the self which knows no such reality as permanent failure. The wisdom of meditation through which one may draw upon the great universal supply of infinite intelligence at will. These and all other riches begin with a positive mental attitude.

  2. Sound Physical Health

    Sound health begins with a “health consciousness” produced by a mind that thinks in terms of health instead of sickness. It requires temperance in eating and commitment to physical activity.

  3. Harmony in Human Relationships

    Harmony with others begins with yourself. “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou cans’t not then be false to any man” ~Shakespeare

  4. Freedom from Fear

    Nobody who fears anything is free. The seven basic fears that appear in the mind are poverty, criticism, ill health, loss of love,loss of liberty, old age, and death.

  5. The Hope of Achievement

    The greatest of all forms of happiness comes from hope of achievement of some yet unattained desire.

  6. The Capacity for Faith

    Faith is the connection with the conscious mind and all that is. It is the fertile soil of the garden of the human mind where all riches in life are produced. It is the stuff that gives creative power and action to the impulses of your thoughts.

  7. Willingness to Share One’s Blessings

    Happiness comes only by sharing. Riches that are not shared will ultimately die. All riches may be multiplied by the simple process of sharing them where they may serve others.

  8. Labor of Love

    Labor is the highest form of human expression of desire. The forerunner of all human progress. All labors of love are sanctified because they bring the joy of self-expression.

  9. An Open Mind on All Subjects

    It is only the person with an open mind who becomes truly educated and who is thus prepared to receive the greater riches of life.

  10. Self-Discipline

    The person who cannot master himself may never become of the master of anything else. Those that master themselves become the masters of their destiny. The greatest expression of this is in humility of the hear when one has attained great riches or has been overtaken by that which is called “success”.

  11. Capacity to Understand People

    Comes from the basic understanding that all people are fundamentally like and evolved from the same place. Those who understand what motivates others must first understand what motivates themselves.

  12. Economic Security

    Economic security is not attained by the possession of money alone. It is attained by the service one renders – for this may be converted into all forms of human needs, with or without the use of money.

    As discussed in the previous post on psycho-cybernetics, your future sucess is based predominantely upon the self-image that your currently hold of yourself. This exercise is not word for word because for that you are going to have to buy the book. But I will give you some tips on heading in the right direction with your creative visualizations. I will warn you that you will not achieve results unless these exercises are consistently followed. I suggest 15 minute sessions for the next 21 days then from there you can step it up.  After 21 days, these exercises become a habit and adding more time to your routine is simple.

    1.  Begin with a written outline of the vision you intend to create. This will help you to create a more vivid mental picture. If you want to crystalize this image, continually come back to this outline and refine it. With practice your imagination will become crisp and your ability to create drastically improves. Remember that practice makes perfect!
