Napoleon Hill
The History of Napoleon Hill and His Secret to Success

Everyone wants to be successful. Napoleon Hill believed that success was within the reach of every person. Our core personal beliefs directly affect how successful we can become. Positive thoughts and ideas attract success. This Law of Attraction, where like ideas attract like ideas, was the basis for the secret of success according to Napoleon Hill.

While Napoleon Hill is best known for his work as a success coach, motivational writer and speaker, his work with the Law of Attraction has helped shape it into the movement it is today. Experts consider him one of the pioneers in this realm of metaphysical knowledge, and even today, people around the world study and follow his philosophies. Mr. Hill's story is interesting, as his own history and upbringing helped to shape his beliefs about success and even his feelings about the Law of Attraction.

"You must get involved to have an impact. No one is impressed with the won-lost record of the referee." - Napoleon Hill

Early Life

Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 to a poor family that lived in a one-room cabin in Virginia. He lost his mother at age 10, but his father soon remarried. After a rebellious period, he got involved in writing at age 13 and began his journey to becoming one of the best-known motivational writers in America's history. Though he faced much adversity as a child, he was able to take these disadvantages and spin them into positive results.

Andrew Carnegie's Influence

Napoleon Hill was already experiencing success as a writer, but had not fully realized his direction in life, when in 1908 he first met Andrew Carnegie. At this time Mr. Carnegie was one of the richest and most powerful men in the world. Hill had the honor of interviewing him for a series of articles about success. Andrew Carnegie shared his belief that success could be achieved by nearly anyone with Hill for the article, and the two found they were

kindred spirits. Hill impressed Carnegie with his writing skills and dedication. Soon the two men were working together to analyze successful men and women and trying to put this information together into a formula for success.

Napoleon Hill's Philosophies

Hill, with help from Carnegie, was able to take the information he learned from his interviews and personal study and create what he called "The Philosophy of Achievement." He found that nearly all the successful people he interviewed embraced the same principles, so he was able to build his philosophies on these ideas. They are freedom, democracy, capitalism and harmony. He felt that while these traits helped build success, there were also traits, such as fear and selfishness that worked counter intuitively to the quest for success. Throughout his motivational career, Napoleon Hill helped regular people harness the positive theories and block out these negative thoughts.

"There comes to your aid and to do your bidding, with the development of the sixth sense, a 'guardian angel' who will open to you at all times the door to the temple of wisdom." Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill and the Law of Attraction

While Mr. Hill encouraged people to achieve success in all aspects of their life, his work with helping people with their earning potential was one of his best known subjects. While he never outright claimed any connection with the Law of Attraction, many people feel that he embraced this philosophy with his books The Law of Success in 16 Lessons and Think and Grow Rich. He describes in Think and Grow Rich how important it is to control your own thoughts to achieve success. He also mentions how the energy of thoughts have the ability to attract the very things we desire, which is nearly identical to the thought process of the Law of Attraction. In Think and Grow Rich, Hill mentions a secret that will help anyone become wealthy. One common belief is that this secret is in fact the Law of Attraction. Send out positive thoughts and ideas to the universe and positive thoughts and happenings will come back to you!
