Napoleon Hill, Law Of Success: Lesson 4 – The Habit Of Saving

“Form the habit of thinking and talking of prosperity and abundance, and very soon material evidence of these will begin to manifest itself in the nature of wider opportunity and new and unexpected opportunity.” ~
Napoleon Hill, Law Of Success: Lesson 4 – The Habit Of Saving.

A 16 lesson course that was summarized to the now commonly known Think & Grow Rich

“Small, narrow voices cried out that Henry Ford would not last another year, but above and beyond the din of their childish prattle Ford went silently about his business and made himself the richest and most powerful man on earth.

The leader is assailed because he is a leader, and the effort to equal him is merely added proof of his leadership.

Failing to equal or to excel, the follower seeks to depreciate and to destroy – but only confirms the superiority of that which he strives to supplant.

There is nothing new in this.”

I took that from “Lesson 5 – Initiative and Leadership” right off Napoleon Hill’s “Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons.”

Powerful reading “course” that takes me through the principles that, according to Napoleon Hill, will systematically led me to success, guaranteed.

As I am putting him to the test, with this emphasized by Jack Canfield in the audios I’m listening to, it hit me…I honestly did not do EXACTLY as I was guided to do through the self-help books I’ve read in order for me to get from where I am, to where I what to be.

If I were to have followed each step given to me, through books like Think & Grow Rich for instance, like MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT, I would have been under wealthier circumstances than I currently am.

“You have to work the principles in order for the principles to work.” – Jack Canfield.

Like writting down, pen to paper, something you want to achieve as already achieved in a statement you will affirm, with a grateful state of mind of believing you’re receiving right now that which you seek, everytime you wake up in the morning and before going to bed at night.

What is working for me is something that Bill Bartmann taught me in his Nine Steps To Achieve Any Goal audio, in writting my goal/ promise on a card then laminating it so that I can carry it around in my wallet or pocket all day.

That way I can reflect on it throughout the day. Reminding myself on what my intent is.

This exercise of reflecting & taking a moment for ourselves, every chance we get, to visualize with the intention and determination of finding ways of receiving or achieving our goal(s), with the emotions we will have once we receive it – visualizing with emotion(s) increases the speed of seeing it manifest, should be done every day, for a minimum of 30 days straight.

If a single day is skipped, we must then go another 30 days from then.

This is done so to make such an impression on the subconscious mind, the part that holds the images that get projected into our daily lives, so that the images that reside in there change.

And it is in working towards changing the images of the subconscious, the part that actually “runs” our lives, that we change our current state of affairs.

Maybe Robert Collier’s Secret Of The Ages can elaborate on what I said for you in a more detailed manner.

Law Of Success Lesson 3 – Self-Confidence: Napoleon Hill

Let the cycle end with you but here’s an extract I want to bring to your attention:

“Many a man has found his place in the world because of having been forced to struggle for existence early in life.

Lack of knowledge of the advantages accruing from struggle has prompted many a parent to say,

“I had to work hard when I was young, but I shall see to it that my children have an easy time!””


The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons course, along with other POWERFUL ebooks, can be found at – since the link that was suppose to direct you to the abundant FREE success ebook got removed…don’t ask :(.

The best I can do for now is recommend the free download of Napoloen Hill’s Think & Grow Rich at this website.

Please forward the above link to other like-minded “path seekers.”

The Law Of Success In Sixteen Lessons

Napoleon Hill wrote The Law Of Success In Sixteen Lessons which was later compressed into what most know as Think and Grow Rich.
The Law Of Success Lesson 1 is Mastermind and after reading but a portion of it I immediately felt the urge to share what it with you because, well, I love you.

And I can only experience true prosperity by sincerly wanting you to be equally prosperous.

So ja, before I start being in need of something to dry my eyes with, here’s a bit of what I’ve read from Napoleon’s The Law Of Success so far, enjoy.

“You may not like the work in which you are now engaged.

There are two ways of getting out of that work.

One way is to take but little interest in what you are doing, aiming merely to do enough with which to “get by.”

Very soon you will find a way out, because the demand for your services will cease.

The other and better way is by making yourself so useful and efficient in what you are now doing that you will attract the favourable attention of those who have power to promote you into more responsible work that is more to your liking.”

Food for thought.

This Is What I Do On An Average Day

I am reading a chapter – Chapter 9: Persistence – from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, a summarised version of his The Law Of Success in Sixteen Lessons.

I am also steadily going through Wallace D. Wattle’s The Science Of Getting Rich – Chapter 15: The Advancing Person.

I’m also reading Neale Donald Walsch’s website Conversations With God – Book 2.

And every time I go in my car I put on a recorded teleseminar with Alex Mandossian and Bob Proctor which I downloaded from The SGR Website.

My status update on some of my social networks – Facebook then it’s Twitter and MySpace – do not have enough character spaces to allow me to make this update possible, so thought I would get that out of my chest right here.

I feel much better now!!

Think and Grow Rich: Who Is Napoleon Hill?

{This blog contains information I have gathered from various internet sources. With that said I cannot be held liable for possible incorrect information or misrepresentation of person(s) within this blog entry.}

Napoleon Hill: 26 October 1883 – 8 November 1970
Founder of The Science of Success & author of best seller: Think and Grow Rich

Born into poverty 1883 in a room cabin – Pound River in Wise County, Virginia.

At the age of 10 his mother passed away and 2 years later his father remarried.

He became a very rebellious boy, but grew up to be an incredible man.

He began writing at 13 as a “Mountain Reporter” for a small town newspaper and become America’s most beloved motivational writer.

He dedicated more than 25 years of his life to define the reasons by which so many people fail to achieve true financial success & happiness in their lives.

During this time he achieved great success as an attorney & journalist.

His early career as a reporter helped finance his way through law school – Georgetown University Law School.

He was given an assignment by Robert L. Taylor: Former Governor of Tennessee, to write a series of success stories of famous men for his magazine.

And his big break came from his first interview with steel-magnate Andrew Carnegie.

Mr. Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview 500 millionaires to find a success formula that could be used by the average person.

These millionaires included Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, Charles M. Schwab, Theodore Roosevelt, William Wringley Jnr, John Wanamaker, William Jennings Bryan, George Eastman, Woodrow Wilson, William H. Taft, John D. Rockefeller, F. W. Woolworths, Jennings Randolph, among others.

Hill became an adviser to Andrew Carnegie and with his help formulated a philosophy of success, drawing on the thoughts & experience of many a rags to riches tycoons.

It took him over 20 years to produce The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons which led to a summarized version of his better known classic in the personal development field called Think and Grow Rich.

Hill considered freedom, democracy, capitalism & harmony to be important contributing elements.

For without these, Hill demonstrated throughout his writings, personal beliefs are not possible.

Hill considered Fear & Selfishness to be the source of failure for unsuccessful people.

The Secret of Achievement was offered to the readers of Think and Grow Rich, although never named directly as Hill felt discovering it for themselves would provide readers with the most benefit.

The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons, is a course which was summarized into Think and Grow Rich 9 years later.

You probably not familiar with this one due to the heavier content it has in comparison to Think and Grow Rich, and it was originally released in 8, yes 8, hard cover books which in total contained a 16 volume master work.

This master work took Hill 20 years to produce, amidst him losing his occupation more than 2 times, his 3 thriving companies going bankruptcy beyond his control and wrongly accused of fraud and put into prison.

His course was used by hundreds of companies & government to “train” people how to be successful.

Hehehe what I found amusing is the number of times Napoleon Hill was quoted,
which deserves a blog of its own truth be told.

But here is an excerpt of one that really hit home for me:

“…For the wise know the truth: in helping others we help ourselves; and in hurting others we hurt ourselves…”

And that ladies and gents is just a glimpse of the incredible life of an equally incredible, successful writer, teacher, and lecturer of the principles of success.

Today The Napoleon Hill Foundation is publishing his best selling writings worldwide.

Oh yes, a copy of The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Napoleon Hill – for those interested – is also available for you.
