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.

  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.

    Imagination is creative soul power that turns dreams into reality. Every other lesson in the Law of Success is made possible through the constructive use of imagination. Start by imagining yourself being imaginative. Begin by carrying around a small notebook with you to write down ideas that come to you as often as possible. You must learn to focus your imagination and act on the right ideas that you develop. For this to work at its best, the six basic fears should be confronted and a chief aim must be decided.

    I know that I mold, fashion, and create my own destiny. My faith in God is my destiny. I cherish an abiding faith in all things good. I live in joyous expectancy of the best; only the best comes to me. I know the harvest I will reap in the future, because all my thoughts are God’s thoughts, and God is with my thoughts of good. My thoughts are the seeds of goodness, truth, and beauty. I now place my thoughts of love, peace, joy, succeess, and goodwill in the garden of my mind.

    The entire seventeen lessons harmonize and blend with each other so that they constitute a perfect chain that has been built, link by link, out of the factors that enter into the development of power through organized effort.

    Leadership is something that you must invite yourself into; it will never thrust itself upon you. If you will carefully analyze all leaders whom you know, you will see that they not only exercised initiative but they also went about their work with a definite chief aim possessed by self-confidence.

    In these lessons you are taught to secure your definite chief plan and lay out a complete plan to turn this aim into reality. Then backed by confidence, take initiative to put your plan into action. Organize a master mind that in harmony, promotes the interests of everyone in the group.

    If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

    Joseph Campbell – The Power of Myth

    Now, I came to this idea of bliss because in Sanskrit, which is the great spiritual language of the world, there are three terms that represent the brink, the jumping-off place to the ocean of transcendence: sat-chit-ananda. The word “Sat” means being. “Chit” means consciousness. “Ananda” means bliss or rapture. I thought, “I don’t know whether my consciousness is proper consciousness or not; I don’t know whether what I know of my being is my proper being or not; but I do know where my rapture is. So let me hang on to rapture, and that will bring me both my consciousness and my being.” I think it worked.
