Napoleon Hill's Principles of Success

Just to share with all something I found at Napoleon Hill's website.

1. Definiteness of Purpose

Successful people move on their own initiative, but they know where they are going before they start.

2. Mastermind

No man can become a permanent success without taking others with them.

3. Applied of Faith

You can do it if you believe you can.

4. Going for the extra mile

The most successful people are those who serve the greatest number of people.

5. Pleasing Personality

It is essential that you develop a Pleasing Personality - pleasing to yourself and others.

6. Personal Initiative

Today's employer usually is yesterday's employee who found opportunity waiting for him at the end of the second mile.

7. Positive Mental Attitude

Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don't. Remember an old Proverb:"Be very careful what you set your heart on, for you will surely achieve it."

8. Enthusiasm

To be enthusiastic, act enthusiastically.

9. Self Discipline

Direct your thoughts. Control you emotions. And ordain your destiny.

10. Accurate Thinking

Truth will be truth, regardless of a closed mind, ignorance, or the refusal to believe.

11. Controlled Attention

Keep you mind on the things you want and off the things you don't want.

12. Teamwork

Harmonious cooperation is a priceless asset which you can acquire in proportion to your giving.

13. Learning from Adversity and Defeat

REMEMBER: every defeat, every disappointment and every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.

14. Creative Vision

The imagination is the workshop of the soul wherein are shaped all the plans for individual achievement.

15. Maintenance of Sound Health

"A sound mind in a sound body, is a short but full description of a happy state in the world." - John Locke

16. Budgeting Time and Money

Tell me how you spend your spare time and how you spend your money, and I will tell you where and what you will be in ten years from now.

17. Cosmic habitforce

You are where you are and what you are because of your established habits, thoughts and deeds.
