A Word of Caution by Napoleon Hill

Keep your major purpose and your plans for attaining it to yourself except in connection with your master mind groups.  The reason for this is twofold:

a. Telling many persons, indiscriminately, will allow negative thinking persons to throw stumbling blocks in your path, or to discourage you from attempting to achieve your definite major purpose.
b. Too much talking about your definite major purpose may tend to dissipate the intensity of your desire to achieve your goal.

Either eventually would tend to destroy your enthusiasm and possibly even deter you from further efforts to achieve your definite major purpose.

So far as we are able to tell, this law of cosmic habitforce is absolutely neutral, just like the subconscious section of the human mind through which it operates.  It will accept and carry out a negative pattern as readily as it will a positive one.  If you allow the fear of criticism, doubt and other people’s negative suggestions to take shape in your mind, it will blot out the picture of your major purpose.

The reason for emphasizing this point is that it is a common tendency of people to boast and to express their greatest enthusiasm in the future tense, by telling what they are going to do.  When you speak of your ambitions, if at all, use the past tense, after they have become accomplishments and are not just words.

A word of caution:  Do not make the mistake of assuming that because you do not understand these principles completely, they are not sound.  Follow the instructions and you will be adopting the method used by some of the greatest leaders ever produced.  These instructions call for no effort that you cannot easily put forth.  They make no demand on your abilities with which the average person cannot comply.

Be sure about what you want from life and doubly sure of what you have to give in return

Napoleon Hill’s Thought For The Day

Examine the lives of successful people, and you will find that they have paid a price that is in direct proportion to the amount of success they have earned. Close examination will almost always reveal years of study and preparation before great success is achieved. This principle is consistent in virtually every field of individual achievement-in the arts, medicine, science, or business. Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily. As you consider your own goals, also consider what you are willing to sacrifice for what you expect to receive. You should be prepared to give generously of your time and talents long before expecting a return on your investment. Many “overnight successes” labored in obscurity for many years before they were finally recognized for their achievements.

You can think your way into or out of almost any circumstance, Good or Bad.

Napoleon Hill’s Thought For The Day

No action takes place unless it is preceded by thought. If you’re unhappy with the circumstances in which you find yourself, you can improve your situation through the power of thought, just as surely as you can destroy a positive life with negative thinking. Success begins with an honest analysis of your present condition, acceptance of responsibility for your own life, and the development of a workable plan to achieve what you desire.

Your own mental attitude is your real boss


Napoleon Hill's Thought For The Day

While your time and your labor may be subject to the demands of your employer and others, your mind is the one thing that cannot be controlled by anyone but you. The thoughts you think, your attitude toward your job, and what you are willing to give in exchange for the compensation you are paid are entirely up to you. It is up to you to determine whether you will be a slave to a negative attitude or the master of a positive one. Your attitude, your only master in life, is entirely within your control. When you control your attitude toward events, you control the eventual implication of those events.

If you don’t know what you want from life, what do you think you will get?

Napoleon Hill's Thought For The Day

The great majority of people in the world drift through life, never realizing that their future will be the one they create for themselves. The minority who achieve great success are people who know what they want and have a plan for realizing their objectives. They know what they want and how they are going to get it. Your goals should be specific, they should be measurable, they should have a deadline for their achievement, and they should be divided into manageable pieces. Know exactly what you plan to achieve, when you plan to achieve it, and how. Review your progress regularly, correct your course when necessary, and never, never give up.

Never tear down anything unless you are prepared to build something better in its place.

Napoleon Hill's Thought For The Day

This rule applies to both individuals and things. It's easy to criticize other people thoughtlessly for their shortcomings, and equally easy to find fault in their work or in situations that are not to your liking. It is far more difficult to be a builder of people and to create works of art, useful products, or profitable businesses. Make sure you are a builder, not a destroyer of people and things. When you criticize the actions or work of others-your children, your employees, or others for whom you are responsible-make sure your criticisms are positive and directed at the act, or the opportunity for improvement, not the individual. Include specific suggestions for their application and focus on the potential for success.
