Yesterday and Today Napoleon Hill Newsletter


This week my friend, and amazing woman, Judy Williamson writes about Napoleon Hill's Gratitude Prayer “Oh, Lord, I ask not for more blessings, but for more wisdom with which to make better use of the blessings you gave me at birth—the privilege of controlling and directing my own mind to purposes of my choice.”

If you are truly pursuing God's purpose for your life you will be more interested in wisdom than an abundance of money. If they both come then all the better however you should strive first for wisdom.

I hope you enjoy this week's newsletter. Consider joining the Foundation's online Mastermind. I am a member and have met some amazing people from it.

"Why You Should Buy Only Foundation Endorsed and Authorized Materials"

By Robert Johnson Napoleon Hill Foundation General Counsel

The Napoleon Hill Foundation is a not for profit charitable institution which uses the revenues it receives from sales of its books and audios for educational purposes. Its principal activities are funding scholarships, professorships and courses at the University of Virginia at Wise, Virginia and Purdue University-Calumet, and instructing adult and juvenile correctional institution inmates in Dr. Hill's seventeen principles.

Unfortunately, there are some publishers of Napoleon Hill's materials who are not authorized by the Foundation. While we do what we can to curtail these publications, we are not able to stop them all. We ask our loyal followers to avoid these unauthorized publications for two main reasons. First, many have been altered, either by deletions or additions to the original text, often undisclosed, and are accordingly not one hundred percent authentic Napoleon Hill material. Second, our Foundation receives no revenue from sales of these materials to use for its educational purposes. How can you know if a book or audio is authorized? There are several things to look for. First, on our newer books, look for our logo on the back cover. Second, many of our newer books were edited or co-written by our World Learning Center Director, Judith Williamson. When you see her name on the cover or title page you can be sure it is authentic. Third, many of our older books and audios are published by Random House and other publishers under licenses signed by Napoleon Hill himself. They do not carry the logo or Ms. Williamson's name. Please look at the "copyright page", usually the first page after the cover of a book, and at the audio packaging or envelope; if it contains the phrase "Copyright 19__ or 20__ by The Napoleon Hill Foundation" you will know it is an authorized edition.

We know the readers of this message are loyal followers of Napoleon Hill and his principles. Please apply one of them and "go the extra mile" to be sure you are buying authorized products. We greatly appreciate your support.
