I have read Napoleon Hill‘s Think and Grow Rich a few times and have listen to Napoleon Hill Laws of Success.
1. Definiteness of Purpose
Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. Without a purpose and a plan, people drift aimlessly through life.
2. Mastermind Alliance
The mastermind principle consists of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common definitive objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others.
3. Applied Faith
Faith is a state of mind through which your aims, desires, plans and purposes may be translated into their physical or financial equivalent.
4, Going the Extra Mile
Going the extra mile is the action of rendering more and better service than for which you are presently paid.
5, Pleasing Personality
Personality is the sum total of one’s a mental, spiritual and physical traits and habits that establish one from all others. It is the factor that determines whether one is liked or disliked by others.
6, Personal Initiative
Personal initiative is the power that inspires the completion of that which one begins. It is the power that starts all action. No person is free until he learns to do his own thinking and gained the courage to act on his own.
7, Positive Mental Attitude
Positive mental attitude is the right mental attitude in all circumstances. Success attracts more success while failure attracts more failure.
Enthusiasm is faith in action. It is the intense emotion known as burning desire. It comes from within, although it radiates outwardly in the expression of one’s voice and countenance.
Self-discipline begins with the mastery of thought. If you do not control your thoughts, and you cannot control your needs. Self-discipline calls for a balancing of the emotions of your heart and the resident faculty of your head.
The power of thought is the most dangerous of the most beneficial power available to man,depending on how it is used.
11, Controlled Attention
Controlled attention leads to mastery in any type of human endeavor, because it enables one to focus the house of his mind upon the attainment of a different objective and to keep if so directed at will.
Teamwork is harmonious cooperation that is willing,voluntary and free. Whenever the spirit of teamwork is the dominating influence in business or industry, success inevitable. Harmonious corporation is a priceless asset you can acquire in proportion to your giving.
13, Adversity and defeat
Individual success usually is an exact proportion of the scope of the defeat the individual experience and mastered. Many so-called failures were represent only a temporary defeat that may prove to be a blessing in disguise.
14, Creative Vision
Creative vision is developed by the free and fearless use of one’s imagination. It is not a miraculous quality with which one is gifted or is not gifted at birth.
Sound health begins with the sound health consciousness, just as financial success begins with a prosperity consciousness.
16, Budgeting Time and Money
Time and Money are precious resources, and few people striving for success ever believe they possess either one in excess.
Developing and establishing positive habits leads to peace of mind, health and financial security. You are where you are because of your established habits and thoughts and deeds.
