Learn and Apply Napoleon Hill's 17 Success Principles

"What the mind of man can conceive, and believe, it can achieve." Napoleon Hill

”Thoughts are things, and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for their translation into riches, or other material objects."

Dr. Hill's 17 Principles of Success are timeless. They are the result of 25 years of research and personal interviews with 500 of the most successful men of his time. People like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie (the world's richest man at the time), Thomas Edison, F Woolworth, Harvey Firestone, 2 U.S. Presidents and numerous others.

He was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie to spend his life researching and putting together a practical course on the science of success. His meeting with W Clement Stone helped to spread the word about his message and proved to be a fruitful, profitable partnership for both of them. Today, The Napoleon Hill Foundation carries on his message and work. With the internet, people around the world have been able to communicate and share his teachings with each other.



Speakers like Les Brown, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, Mark Victor Hansen and Tony Robbins have all publicly praised the book Think and Grow Rich and they say it is the book that got them started in their career.



His two most famous books are 'Think and Grow Rich' and 'Law of Success'. Think and Grow Rich has sold over 100 million copies since it was published in 1937. It is one of the 10 Top Selling non-fiction Books of All Time.

Law of Success was published in 1928 and consisted of over 1000 pages.
