Napoleon Hill's 17 Principles of Personal Achievement
Transcript of Napoleon Hill's 17 Principles of Personal Achievement
Principles of Personal Achievement I 7 1 2 3 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. Example: Steve Jobs and Wozniak 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. Faith is a state of mind through which your aims, desires, plans and purposes may be translated into their physical or financial equivalent. Lesson 3: Applied Faith Example: Jesus take the wheel? When you always give more of yourself than is asked you are creating a situation where others are always in your debt. 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. 4 5 Manners is the ability make people feel comfortable. 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. 6 Jim Rohn 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. 7 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 8:
Enthusiasm 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 9:
Self-Discipline 9 Do not trust a source unless you have verified it yourself. 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. 10 "Commit to only one task, and direct all your attention until it is complete.” 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. 11 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. 12 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. 13 Get Serious Focus http://www.businessinsider.com/why-the-fail-fast-mantra-needs-to-fail-2010-3 Honda Failure 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 14:
Creative Vision Sound health begins with a sound health consciousness, just as financial success begins with a prosperity consciousness. Lesson 15:
Health Three Pillars of Success Time and money are precious resources, and few people striving for success ever believe they possess either one in excess. Lesson 16:
Budgeting Time & Money Account for your Time and Money on a Regular basis - Tim’s class 16 15 17 Morning Ritual 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. Lesson 17:
Habits Changing Paradigms Repetition is the Key 8 14 Praxis Integration of belief and behavior In Ancient Greek the word praxis () referred to activity engaged in by free men. Aristotle held that there were three basic activities of man: theoria, poiesis and praxis. There corresponded to these kinds of activity three types of knowledge: theoretical, to which the end goal was truth; poietical, to which the end goal was production; and practical, to which the end goal was action. Aristotle further divided practical knowledge into ethics, economics and politics. He also distinguished between eupraxia (good praxis) and dyspraxia (bad praxis, misfortune) Definition Aristotle held that there were three basic activities of man: theoria, poiesis and praxis Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 - November 8, 1970) Born in a one room cabin

What is good manners? Good manners is the art of making those people easy with whom we converse; whoever makes the fewest persons uneasy, is the best bred man in company. - pg. 160 Readings for Young Men, Merchants, and Men of Business (1866) "Where can I apply these principles?" Please write down your thoughts and share examples during the presentation. Ask Yourself Don’t search for success – commit to grow, commit to become, commit to do what you know to do, and you will attract success. So few people realize this. Success is not something that you chase, it’s something that you turn into. Success comes from growth; it comes from growing bigger than the problems and obstacles that surround you. Disclaimer: I am developing these principles within myself. I have not mastered them by any means. “Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.” (September 25, 1930 - December 5, 2009 "Discipline is Happiness" Darus Trutna “I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.”
- Charles Dickens 1812-1870, Abraham Lincoln Negative self-talk! Would you talk to your best friend like that? Lord Baron Max Aitken Beaverbrook's Judgement, Industry, and Health ? Thomas Jefferson A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
