Napoleon Hill's 17 Success Principles

I'm all about prospering and living abundantly. I have always known that I'm not the one to live an "ordinary" life meaning...I'm the one that believes I'm put here to live abundantly...beyond measure! I'm put here to live in perfect health, wealth, abundance and prosperity! I was born to do great things, to be a great person of influence, to be a person with the means to bless others in more ways imaginable, I was born to live the life of my dreams to help others do the same!!

There are many people in this world living the life of their DREAMS! They are no better or more deserving than you or me...WE ALL CAN LIVE THE LIFE OF OUR DREAMS!! It may take a few years to get there but it's not impossible. With GOD on your side....NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! You have to beleive that despite the obstacles, hardships, nay-sayers, or circumstances!! You have to give to give your time, energy, love, tithes to God and he will come through on your behave more abundantly than you have already seen. I am seeking to do better in my all areas of my life....complain less rejoice more!! Be grateful for what I have....give more of what I have, so that I can receive more of what I want!!

God is not mocked; whatsoever a man sows, that is what he will reap. Galations 6:7

Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

God is our ultimate source and unlimited supply....depend on him for all your needs and wants!!! Know that all wealth comes from God....he delights in our prosperity and want nothing but the best for his children! Believe it and receive it!! It is the truth!!

But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18
And my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:19

Okay...on to the purpose of the post...ha!

I heard of Napoleon Hill from his book Think and Grow Rich...(you can get a free copy of that e-book online everywhere) I have yet to finish the book but I'm always researching online about things relating to prosperity and abundance and how I can reprogram my mind to think like a prosperous person thinks, to keep my mind on God's promises for prosperity over my life, to see how those that ARE or WAS prosperous during their lifetime thought or lived or behaved.

IF you want to be a successful screenwriter then surround yourself WITH successful screenwriters, read about successful screenwriters take the steps that they took or learn from their mistakes...that goes for anything you want to do in life....

There's this affirmation that I say daily: <!--[endif]-->I imitate those who through faith & patience inherit what God has promised! Napoleon has 17 Success Principles that I want to share with you today. I found this article that gives a summary of the principles and what they mean! I found it an interesting read!

You can find the article on

I'm just going to list the principles here go to the site to read the full summary!!

Lesson 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.
Lesson 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 definite objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others.
Lesson 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.
Lesson 4: Going the Extra Mile
Going the extra mile is the action of rendering more and better service than that for which you are presently paid. When you go the extra mile, the Law of Compensation comes into play.
Lesson 5: Pleasing Personality
Personality is the sum total of one’s mental, spiritual and physical traits and habits that distinguish one from all others. It is the factor that determines whether one is liked or disliked by others.
Lesson 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 gains the courage to act on his own.
Lesson 7: Positive Mental Attitude
Positive mental attitude is the right mental attitude in all circumstances. Success attracts more success while failure attracts more failure.
Lesson 8: Enthusiasm
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.
Lesson 9: Self-Discipline
Self-discipline begins with the mastery of thought. If you do not control your thoughts, you cannot control your needs. Self-discipline calls for a balancing of the emotions of your heart with the reasoning faculty of your head.
Lesson 10: Accurate Thinking
The power of thought is the most dangerous or the most beneficial power available to man, depending on how it is used.
Lesson 11: Controlled Attention
Controlled attention leads to mastery in any type of human endeavor, because it enables one to focus the powers of his mind upon the attainment of a definite objective and to keep it so directed at will.
Lesson 12: Teamwork
Teamwork is harmonious cooperation that is willing, voluntary and free. Whenever the spirit of teamwork is the dominating influence in business or industry, success is inevitable. Harmonious cooperation is a priceless asset that you can acquire in proportion to your giving.
Lesson 13: Adversity & Defeat
Individual success usually is in exact proportion of the scope of the defeat the individual has experienced and mastered. Many so-called failures represent only a temporary defeat that may prove to be a blessing in disguise.
Lesson 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.
Lesson 15: Health
Sound health begins with a sound health consciousness, just as financial success begins with a prosperity consciousness.
Lesson 16: Budgeting Time & Money
Time and money are precious resources, and few people striving for success ever believe they possess either one in excess.
Lesson 17: Habits
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.

Hope this was helpful!!

Much love, many hugs, & A TON of blessings!!
