Napoleon Hill is one of the most well-known authors in the fields of business, motivation, and personal development. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Tony Robbins, and Daymond John all advocate his most well-known book, Think and Grow Rich, and attribute much of their own success to it.
One of Napoleon Hill’s catchphrases, heavily influenced by Andrew Carnegie, is “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” He provided 17 guidelines or keys to success and self-actualization, and they are still relevant in people’s lives today.
In his book “Law of Success,” Napoleon Hill first described his 17 laws of success. Throughout his lifetime, he made numerous changes to those statutes. The whole list of laws is provided below.
Napoleon Hill’s The 17 Laws of Success
1. Definiteness of Purpose
“There is one trait which one must possess to win, and that is . definiteness of purpose, the understanding of what one wants, and a burning desire to get it,” declared Napoleon Hill. Concentrate all of your efforts on achieving a single, distinct life objective. If you try to achieve several conflicting goals at once, you won’t achieve the success you desire in life. Tony Robbins once observed, “Where your focus goes, energy flows.”

2. Mastermind Alliance
Working in perfect coordination with others to accomplish a certain goal is known as a mastermind alliance. Together, two minds can generate concepts that neither one could independently come up with. And the quality of the ideas you generate will increase the more knowledgeable the people you deal with.
3. Going the Extra Mile
Delivering More and Better Service Than You Are Paid For – Napoleon Hill once stated, “Render more and better service than you are paid for, and sooner or later you will reap compound interest from your investment.” You must take significant activity in the direction you want to go in and keep up a strong momentum if you’re stuck in your life and want to make a long-lasting change.
Going the Extra Mile: The Bhagavad-Gita Explanation
Not only in India but also throughout the rest of the world, the Bhagavad-Gita is regarded as one of the most sacred texts. The Bhagavad-Gita is the timeless teaching of spiritual knowledge that originated in ancient India. The Bhagavad-Gita is frequently referred to as the “Song of God” since the words Gita and Bhagavad both mean “Song” and “God,” respectively. It is fascinating to see how this book illustrates the idea of going above and beyond. Lord Krishna instructed Arjuna to “do your duty without thinking about the result” in this book. Going the Extra Mile is possibly best described in this statement alone. Arjuna was commanded by Lord Krishna to act morally upright and according to religious principles. Since you cannot predict the future, you should not consider the repercussions when doing morally. You might or might not succeed in your goal in the end, but thinking about it over and again will just make you feel weak and preoccupied and increase your chances of failing.
Napoleon Hill may have recognized the value of this old text when he wrote the principle of “Going the Extra Mile” as one of the requirements for success.
The Rewards Of Going Above And Beyond Are Explained By Nature
Everyone is aware of how hot water is at 990C. really warm We also know that water starts to boil at a temperature of 1000C. and turns into steam. Additionally, steam has more power and can move an entire trainload of passengers. Consider the fact that hot water only needs one degree more to be powerful enough to operate a train.
One degree is significant. Making just a little more of an effort can make the difference between winning and coming in second place. the distinction between accomplishing your aims and failing to do so. When you go above and above, you have that power. People who are successful perform all that is required of them and then some.
4. Applied Faith
“The mind has no limitations except those which conflict with the laws of nature”, said Napoleon Hill in his chapter Applied Faith. Your chances of success will significantly rise if you think and behave as though you already have all you desire in life. What are some limiting ideas that you need to let rid of because they don’t serve any useful purpose for you? What do you need to believe in order to advance in your life, you could ask?
5. Learning from Adversity and Defeat
Napoleon Hill once said, “Often, opportunities come disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat.” In other words, treat challenges and failure as nothing more than opportunities for growth and signs that your plans need to be adjusted. When you encounter a setback, consider the new avenues for achievement that your new life circumstances are providing for you. Another saying that applies to this concept is this one: “Look for the seed of an equivalent benefit in every failure.” Attempt to approach life from the perspective that it occurs for you, not to you.
The Advantages of Losing
• Losing exposes and destroys unhealthy habits, freeing up your energy for a new beginning with better ones.
• Losing replaces pride and vanity with humility, opening the door for more peaceful interactions.
• When you lose, you must evaluate your financial and spiritual assets and obligations.
• Losing challenges you to exert more effort, which improves your willpower.
Bodybuilders are aware that it isn’t sufficient to simply yank the barbell up; it must also be lowered twice as slowly as it was raised. Resistance training is based on this idea; it demands more control and energy than the flashy work of actually raising the weight. Your resistance training may be defeat. To train yourself to achieve even greater and more powerful development the next time, go back to where you started each time with intention and focus on the process.
Your Mentality About Losing
This introduction has emphasized numerous times that mastering defeat depends on your attitude toward it. You may only consider it to be a loss or a chance to gain. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, in which the assassin Brutus says the negative attitude toward defeat:
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries
6. Pleasing Personality
A pleasing personality is one that normally treats others with respect and friendliness. This law does not advocate becoming a pushover and people-pleaser. But if you want to succeed in life, you’ll probably need to network with other successful people who are farther along than you are in their pursuit of their objectives. They must love being with you in order to develop relationships with you.
Things to Think About
1. The best mental attitude to have in any circumstance is a positive outlook.
2. If you are sincere in your intentions, it will strengthen all of the other components of your attractive personality.
3. Every situation has a proper and improper time.
4. Your most valuable asset is courtesy, and it is totally free.
5. Your mental attitude is reflected in your emotions, which you can control, direct, and
6. Creating a beautiful personality requires constant effort to enhance endearing qualities and
removing undesirable features.
7. Your personality encompasses all you have control over, including your intellect, body, and soul, making it both your greatest strength and weakness.
8. A smile is free and improves your appearance and mood.
9. The three little words “if you please” have enormous power.
10. Make someone else happy in order to be happy!
11. What does a charming personality entail? a captivating personality
12. Without a strong, honorable foundation, no one can have a charming personality.
13. Decide to live a joyful life! People who are happy and those who are unhappy merely differ in attitude!
7. Personal Initiative
One of the most crucial traits you need to possess to be a great leader or entrepreneur is personal initiative. This behavior entails initiating significant tasks and seeing them through to completion. Never hold off on doing anything vital if you need to get someone’s approval or external affirmation.
8. Creative Vision
Creative vision is the practice of picturing the things you want most and the steps you need to take to get them. “All successes, all earned riches, have their starting in an idea,” said Napoleon Hill.
9. Positive Mental Attitude
A positive mental attitude is the practice of always seeking the good in life, especially in the face of failure and adversity. Additionally, in order to pursue our objectives with a clear mind, we must learn to alter our thoughts when we begin to experience unpleasant feelings.
Trust that there will be adequate solutions for all of your difficulties, but be aware that they might not always be what you want. Rely on the accomplishments of others to serve as a constant reminder that any setback is surmountable. The greatest inventor ever lived, Thomas Edison, had only three months of formal education; millions of people were inspired by Helen Keller, who was blind, deaf, and unable to speak. A clear major objective is more powerful than any restrictions.
Accept constructive criticism rather than responding negatively to it. Accept any chance to find out how people perceive you, and use it to evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses. Encourage criticism instead of avoiding it. Form a mastermind alliance with people who share your commitment to the success principles.
Talk about your development and ideas to benefit from a much larger spectrum of experience. Always try to stay upbeat during these talks. Understand the differences between hoping, desiring, wishing, and being fervently desirous to achieve your goal. You can only be driven by a strong desire that can only be stoked by having a good outlook on life.
Enthusiasm is the practice of focusing your life on the things you enjoy most in order to maintain your energy levels. To keep pursuing your goals in the face of failures, you need a lot of energy and excitement.
Self-discipline is the practice of abstaining from actions that will cause you more harm than good. Avoid negative habits that can cause you to stray from your objectives. This one might be a little subjective.
12. Accurate Thinking
Accurate thinking is the practice of creating judgments and ideas that are supported by verifiable facts and evidence. Avoid prejudices and presumptions that might lead you to make poor choices.
13. Controlled Attention
Controlled attention is the practice of setting priorities with your time and attention so that you can keep your attention on what is most crucial and useful. You would require controlled attention to devote at least 20 to 40 hours per week to establishing your side business if you had a full-time job plus one.
Teamwork is the process of collaborating with others to achieve a common objective. Your need for talented people to assist you in achieving your objective will increase as it becomes greater and more ambitious.
15. Maintenance of Sound Health
Maintaining Sound Health is the practice of eating well and regularly exercising to keep your energy levels high.
16. Budgeting of Time and Money
Budgeting of Time and Money refers to the practice of setting aside time each day to advance toward a specific primary goal and saving and investing money to maintain a steady increase in your financial situation.
17. Establishing Positive Habits
Establishing Positive Habits is repeatedly practicing positive thought and behavior patterns until they become automatic and self-moving.
Utilizing the 17 Laws of Success: 3 Tips
Remember that the first four laws are thought to be the most crucial and will probably produce the quickest results.
It could be helpful to focus on mastering one of these principles in your daily life per week in order to integrate them all into your personality.
Any of these laws can be combined with another to produce an even more potent idea. Look through these laws once more, and then use your creativity to identify the two that, if combined, would have the greatest immediate impact on your life. To begin with, consider how much your life would be affected if the “Going the Extra Mile” law and the “Definite Major Purpose” law were merged.
Chapter 1: Definiteness of Purpose
To start, there are 17 fundamental success principles that must all be used in some combination for a person to achieve the goal of his significant activity. To start, this workshop will mention the most crucial. No one has ever succeeded without using it, hence it is at the top of the list of the 17 principles of achievement. It is known as the Definiteness of Purpose Principle. If you examine any individual who is regarded as having achieved lasting success, you will discover that he or she has a clearly defined major goal, a strategy for achieving it, and spends the majority of his or her attention and energy to achieving it.
Everyone aspires to have money, a successful career, notoriety, and recognition; but, the majority of people never move past the “wishing” phase. People who are adamant about getting what they want in life go beyond hoping for it. They turn their desires into a Burning Desire and support it with consistent work carried out according to a well-thought-out strategy.
Chapter 2: Mastermind Alliance
The mastermind alliance is the second of Napoleon Hill’s 17 principles of success. According to the mastermind principle, impossible activities can be accomplished by two or more people working in perfect harmony to achieve a specific goal. According to Napoleon Hill, using a mastermind alliance allows us to access and utilize the knowledge, stature, skills, and money of others. Nobody can succeed for the long haul without using the master mind alliance. According to Napoleon Hill, master mind is the ability to coordinate effort and knowledge in a spirit of harmony between two or more persons in order to achieve a specific goal. Engineers, mathematicians, technicians, and several other technocrats helped great entrepreneurs like Thomas Alva Edison and Henry Ford succeed. They just applied the master mind alliance approach and utilized other people’s skills. Three friends going to the gym together and encouraging each other to attend every time one is feeling bad will serve as a fairly easy illustration of the mastermind principle. According to Napoleon Hill, the mastermind is the key to success, and we can utilize it to unlock the door to the accomplishment of our stated major life goal. The greatest approach to accomplish really large goals is through mastermind alliances, yet most of these alliances have historically failed.
Chapter 3: Going the Extra Mile
This behavior involves going above and above what is required of oneself while maintaining a cheerful attitude. To receive anything, we must first give. The Law of Reciprocity serves as the foundation for the idea of going above and beyond. According to the Law of Reciprocity, if you offer someone something, they will feel compelled to give you something in return. A QQMA formula was used by Napoleon Hill to clarify this idea. Let’s look more closely at the QQMA formula.
a) The first part of the QQMA formula, “Quality of service you provide,” tells us how well we are doing when we serve others. We must not merely make a token effort to assist others. You must give your all when serving the other people.
b) Amount of services provided: We must not restrict our services to a small group of individuals. Always strive to make the biggest impact possible with your work.
c) Your mental attitude while providing services: We must provide services with a positive attitude. Only if we serve others with a positive mental attitude can we experience positive energy.
Twenty years of suffering and Putting the Extra Mile Rule to the Test:
When Dr. Napoleon Hill made the decision to work for the richest man on Earth for a period of twenty years without pay, he put the idea of going the extra mile to the test and found it to be effective. In the beginning, friends and family members dubbed him an idiot and advised him to get his mind checked. But Dr. Napoleon Hill persisted in his research because of a strong conviction, and as a result, he was able to develop what is arguably the best personal achievement philosophy in the entire world.
Summarizing the essence of the “going the additional mile” principle for all aspiring business owners, startups, and organizations: this one principle is sufficient to eliminate, terminate, and wipe out your entire competition, and you will certainly achieve the grand success by truly starting to think & grow rich if you consistently apply it with the right mental attitude.
Chapter 4: Applied Faith
When a desire comes from one’s deepest beliefs and draws those emotions, it also draws faith. You need to believe that a wish will come true in order for it to be fulfilled. A desire begins to take on a physical form when you have genuine faith that it will come true. Even on a subconscious level, people who feel unworthy of love frequently find themselves in a cycle of relationships that they somehow undermine, despite the fact that they may appear to be the victims in it. This is a result of our own ingrained views.
If you want a desire to come true, believe in it and have trust that it will, since our beliefs have such power that they almost always do. You must genuinely feel that you deserve what you want and that it will soon be yours. Wishes come true because of trust. If you find it difficult to believe, keep repeating affirmations that the wish will be fulfilled. If you repeatedly saying something, eventually it will start to ring true and the concept won’t seem so strange.
Keep an eye on your thoughts, and when you notice a trend of self-limiting thinking, choose specific affirmations and repeat them to disprove the limiting beliefs.
Chapter 5: Learning from Adversity and Defeat
What if we had the power to alter every instance of difficulty and failure that occurred in our lives?
Napoleon Hill has such a wonderful way of encouraging us to accept and alter our perspective of whatever is going on in our lives at any given time.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napolean Hill
The good news is that until we accept it as such, there is no such thing as defeat. Napoleon Hill claims that the finest use is to ensure that we adopt a Positive Mental Attitude toward what we otherwise would perceive as “failure” as we navigate the ups and downs of life. Our perspective on everything in our lives will alter if we recast it as simply a “temporary defeat” — naturally.
It’s astounding how failure or defeat offers a lesson that can only be learned via defeat and how we may use this lesson to our advantage in life.
Keep in mind that what is not fixed will eventually happen again. Only once it is accepted as failure does defeat turn into a destructive force! Therefore, it is always a blessing when acknowledged as imparting some necessary lessons.
What can you do to address a situation in your life where you may feel defeated right now? You’ll be pleased you took a moment to reframe it, so stop right now!
Chapter 6: Pleasing Personality
Your distinctive brand is your personality. It determines whether you are successful in marketing yourself or not. There are more than 30 components, all of which are in your control. Your mental attitude is the most crucial element, and it must be positive in order to draw others to you.
Flexibility, the capacity to restrain and channel your excitement, and sincerity of purpose are other crucial elements.
Test your personality against these barriers to attractiveness: interrupting others, sarcasm, vanity, not listening well, finding fault, confronting people without justification, offering unsolicited advice, grumbling, and a superior attitude, as well as poor posture and attire.
There is a reason why you’re unpopular, and you can fix it.
Chapter 7: Personal Initiative
Self-starters make good managers
Good managers, at any level, don’t wait to be ordered to do something if it needs to be done. If it falls within their purview and they have the power to act, they just do it.
If there is any doubt over their authority to take action, they draw attention to the issue, recommend a course of action, and request permission. If it falls entirely beyond of their purview, they diplomatically urge those who do possess the necessary power to take action. The key is that those with initiative feel it is their own obligation to start something when it needs to be done. Others could be as capable and willing to put in a lot of effort, but they lack the motivation to get things moving on their own.
Why do some people balk at taking ownership of making any changes or initiating new initiatives? One of the numerous causes is the worry about taking the fall if the project doesn’t succeed. Another, and perhaps the most regrettable, explanation is that they don’t see it as an essential component of their work.
The behaviors of many recently promoted managers show this attitude to be very evident. New managers may consider themselves to be nothing more than communication channels between their bosses and subordinates when they are suddenly put in the position of giving people directives as opposed to merely following someone else’s. They receive instructions from their employer, which they then relay to their coworkers.
That might be ideal as a starting point. However, managers who never rise above this level are failing to fulfill their obligations.
Self-starters are a must for good managers. They prepare for the demands of their jobs ahead of time and don’t rely on their superiors to think for them. Without needing to be prompted, they take on the task of creating innovative concepts and techniques within the confines of their authority.
Simply said, managers are compensated for their ideas and initiative in a given field. That is the essence of leadership. They are expected to provide it by organizations, supervisors, their coworkers, and everyone else. They aren’t performing their duties if they don’t do it.
Chapter 8: Creative Vision
Many businesspeople misunderstand what being innovative actually entails. They typically discuss creativity as if only artists and filmmakers possess it in any kind of meaningful amount or quality.
Even though this point of view is widespread, it doesn’t mean that the observation is true.
On September 19, the well-known self-help author Napoleon Hill will republish his previously unheard-of book How to Own Your Own Mind. According to the publisher, it was “originally compiled in 1941,” after which it was lost. Whatever transpired is back and is worthwhile reading.
Hill lays out a methodical approach for realizing a creative goal in it. Anyone who invests the time and effort should be able to make it work. The narration is greatly aided by the parts from the author’s Q&As with steel mogul Andrew Carnegie (who was then the same business world star as Microsoft founder Bill Gates is now).
The main issue is that in order to be creative, you must produce something. That is to say, if you have a ̶
