The Law Of Success By Napoleon Hill

The Law Of Success

The Law Of Success By Napoleon Hill

The Law Of Success – About The Book & Author

Many people know that Napoleon Hill was chosen by Andrew Carnegie to study the habits of the most wealthy and successful men of their era, and to document his findings so that future generations would be able to use this information as tools to reach their own endeavors.

What you may not have heard is that The Law of Success was the original text which was written by Hill, and published in 1928.

Think and Grow Rich, which is currently his most widely read book, was not published until 1937.

Both books relay similar information, although The Law of Success is truly a more in-depth version, which acts as multiple courses of a class on achievement and prosperity.

Think and Grow Rich, though, is about half as many pages and can be carried around more easily for quick reference.

You must understand that these are books that you can read over and over, and always learn from.

The Law of Success is organized into sixteen original principles, or lessons.

All of them are listed below:

#1: The Master Mind – Telepathy, ether, vibration, and how it all is the basis for how the world functions. A master mind is the alliance of two minds joining in a harmonious way.

The power that is formed from two or more minds coming together is more powerful than one alone. This is strictly for minds who trust each other and are interested in the good success of all parties involved.

#2: Your Definite Chief Aim – Do not underestimate the value of this due to its simplicity. You need to set an objective before you can achieve it. Not having a solid aim to focus on can not possibly get you to it. You have to know what you want so that you can start receiving it.

#3: Self Confidence – Believe that you are worthy of success and that you can attain it. Without this simple understanding- truly understanding it- you will probably get nowhere with most of your goals. If you are not confident, then you cannot sell yourself in life.

#4: The Habit of Saving – Stop trying to get a Cadillac if you feel more comfortable paying for a Ford. You are on the path to easily affording a Cadillac.

#5: Initiative and Leadership – Addresses the importance of leadership skills (yes, they can be habituated and you don’t have to be a born leader). Here, Hill acknowledges the penalties of leadership. Leaders are not always spoken of sweetly.

This should not deter you from becoming a leader. It is only “genius” that attracts the attention of critics. Nobody bothers slandering a person who isn’t somewhere near the upper rings of the ladder of success.

#6: Imagination – Dream, and use your imagination to help lead you to the attainment of your goals. The making good decisions comes with use, and your intuition will always lead you toward your dream. Dreams and actions are closely related.

#7: Enthusiasm – Compels you to act. Mix enthusiasm with your work- do something you are enthusiastic about- and you will not get tired nearly as quickly. Hill explains the things that can contribute to enthusiasm, one being to wear nice clothes.

Basically, if you look like a million bucks, you’ll feel like a million bucks, and you will likely find yourself around a million bucks. The opposite is also true, and this is to be avoided. Feel good about your appearance, because it also affects the first impression of you on others who can be instrumental in your path to success.

#8: Self Control – Auto suggestion is like reprogramming your subconscious mind to believe what you want it to believe- to replace your old beliefs with new ones that will serve you better. This takes self control. Have you ever tried to change a habit?

It makes sense. When you take control over the thoughts you are thinking, then you can take control of your success. Make these thoughts the ones you want to believe, and see yourself the way you want to see yourself.

#9: Habit Of Doing More Than Paid For – If you are going to whine about your work, then you are not going anywhere. Do the work you have in front of you, then ask what else you may do. By doing this, you make yourself valuable, and you will surely reach a point where you are being paid handsomely. Valuable employees are… valuable.

This is also and especially true when you are working for yourself.

#10: Pleasing Personality – Have one. Don’t point things out on people, don’t hang your head and say “I’m tired”. Mediocrity does not care if you are pleasant or not. Success does.

#11: Accurate Thought – Sort “facts” from “information”, and use auto-suggestion in conjunction with focused thoughts.

#12: Concentration“Concentration is the act of focusing the mind upon a given desire until ways and means for its realization have been worked out and successfully put into operation” (p 438). That about covers it.

#13: Cooperation – The implementing of cooperation between you and others who are going to help you get to your goal (the top of the ladder of success is never lonely, because you can’t help but bring others with you).

Cooperation must also exist between your conscious and subconscious mind so that they may work harmoniously in your favor.

#14: Failure – Yes! Fail, and be happy that it is bringing you one step closer to success. Failure is inevitable, and it is a great step towards the right direction. Replace “failure” with “temporary defeat”.

#15: Tolerance – Don’t practice prejudice or racism. It is ignorance, and it is a barrier to success. Just see the best in people and situations, and focus only on your goal and the good for all.

#16: The Golden Rule“Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you.”

Also, “Think of others as you wish them to think of you.”

Leaders Are Readers | Recommended Books

Leaders Are Readers

Written by Jeorge Ambler

Original source:


Reading has always been a habit of great leaders.

It’s one of the most powerful sources of growth, inspiration and new ideas. Reading is a great investment in your personal development.

If you want to improve your leadership you need to read.

Effective reading is a habit that goes beyond just skimming or scanning.

Effective reading requires you read deeply, understand and apply the ideas and lesson to the challenges of the day.

Here are some habits that will help you get the most out of your reading:


Leaders Read Quality

To get the most out of your reading time requires you read books of quality.

Quality books nourish your mind and inspire your heart.

Effective reading requires you read right and that you read quality.

As they saying goes “garbage in, garbage out”, we need to as careful what we feel our mind as we are about what we put into our bodies.


Leaders Read Broadly

Don’t limit your reading to a single genre, such as business or fiction.

Develop the habit of reading broadly include books from a broad range of genres such as, biographies, philosophy, history, science, literature and the social sciences.

This helps leaders broaden their worldview and become multi-dimensional thinkers. If you have traditionally only read business books why not commit to read two or three books outside of your comfort zone this year?


Leaders Share Insights and Inspire Others

Take notes from the books you read to share with your team.

This is a great way to share ideas, initiate innovative discussions and spark action.

A benefit of sharing your insight is that it inspires a culture of learning, reading and personal growth.

Another great way to share and help others is to start a book club. To do this pick a book, invite a number of people to read it with you over the next month, then hold a group discussion to share insights, reactions and views.


Leaders Re-read Great Books

There are many books that you will gain significant more insight and understanding on the second reading.

This is especially true for quality books; they usually require a second reading.

Then there are a number of books that you many want to consider reading every year, especially books with ideas that you need to keep top of mind.


Leaders Read and Leaders Write

Whilst reading is a critical leadership habit, in the same way writing should be considered as important.

Writing is the best tool for sorting and organizing your thoughts and ideas.

Combining reading and writing helps to improve the value you get from what you’ve read.

So once you have completed a chapter take time to write down a summary, your thoughts and reactions.


Leaders Never Stop Learning and Reading

Reading great books stimulates a leader’s thinking and is a source of new ideas and insights. Leaders are always on the lookout for great new reads.

Reading is to the mind as exercise is to the body.

It keeps the brain active, healthy and productive.

Reading is one of the best ways for a leader to keep learning, growing and impacting the world around them.

Original source:

I found this article above very useful so I wanted to share it with you.

Reading, or at least listening to audio books (personal development) is important to grow personally and spiritually as well as financially.

Your income can grow only to the extent you do.

Commit to reading for at least 15-30 minutes per day for the next 30 days and just watch how your life will change! ;-)
