** Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day:

------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

** Act on your own initiative, be prepared to assume full responsibility for your acts.

------------------------------------------------------------

 

One of the primary differences between those who achieve great things in their lives and those who manage only to "get by" is that successful people learned early in life that they were responsible for their own actions. No other person can make you successful or keep you from achieving your goals.

 

Taking the initiative means assuming a leadership role, a position that singles you out for praise – and for criticism. The good leader is one who shares the credit for success with others and assumes full responsibility for failures or temporary setbacks. When you accept responsibility for your actions, you gain the respect of others and are well on the way to creating your own future.

  • ** If you become discouraged, think of Helen Keller, who, though she was deaf, dumb, and blind inspired her more fortunate contemporaries through her books.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

     

    The life of Helen Keller is an outstanding example of the triumph of the human spirit over a physical handicap. Even today, decades after her death, her life stands as a beacon of hope for those who must constantly struggle just to perform routine tasks that most of us take for granted. Whenever you feel fate has been unkind you, all you must do is look around and you will begin to appreciate how fortunate you are. Make sure your life's plan includes giving something back to the community without expecting anything in return. Giving time and effort, not just money, reinforces your connections to your community, provides you with concrete proof of the effectiveness of deliberate action, and reminds you of the inspiring power of determination in human behavior.

    Impossible is for the unwilling.

  • Overly cautious is as bad as no caution. It makes other people suspicious.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Napoleon Hill's wisdom reminds us that excessive caution can be as detrimental as a complete lack of it, inciting suspicions among others. To garner trust and confidence, it's imperative to conduct oneself in a trustworthy manner. Overcautious behavior that inhibits trying novel ideas can mar your credibility, akin to rashly embarking on unthoughtful ventures. Extremes in behaviors are often associated with poor judgment. However, it is crucial not to be immobilized by over-analysis. Distinguishing facts from opinions is key, and decisions should be grounded on dependable information. Therefore, once armed with reliable knowledge, take decisive action.

    Great things never came from comfort zones.

  • Loafing on your job hurts your employer, but it hurts you more.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Some people expend far more energy getting out of work than they would spend doing the job well. They may think they are fooling the boss, but they are only fooling themselves. An employer may not know all of the details of every job or every task an individual performs, but a good manager knows the results of effort. You can be sure that when promotions or plum assignments become available, they won't be offered to loafers.

    If you do your job cheerfully and well, not only are you more likely to be recognized and rewarded, but you also learn how to do your job better. As you become more proficient, you become more valuable to your employer. You also acquire the most valuable of all assets— the confidence that comes from knowing you possess skills that will increase your value to any organization.

  • The privilege of bringing children into the world carries with it the responsibility of teaching them the fundamentals of sound character.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    One of life's greatest joys is a sense of wonder that accompanies the arrival of a tiny new human being into the world. But that joy is accompanied by tremendous responsibility that perfectly encapsulates the need for personal initiative. You can provide children with all the physical advantages of a good childhood, but unless you strive to set a good example for them to follow, you will know only dismay as they reach adulthood and blossom into purposeless drifters.

    Your personal initiative, whether or not you're raising a child, must always incorporate exemplary behavior. You cannot take ethical shortcuts, big or small, without other people observing them and assuming that this behavior is something you wouldn't mind having turned back on yourself. Certainly, you will make mistakes, but if you have always striven for the best course, others will remember it and treat you accordingly.

  • Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    It is possible to go through life without ever accepting any responsibility, but such freedom from the cares of the world comes at an enormous financial cost. If you make it a practice to go out the back door when responsibility walks through the front, you will also miss out on the opportunities that always accompany responsibility. In almost any vocation, profession, or calling, your benefit is directly proportional to the responsibility that accompanies your position.

    Make it a practice to volunteer for more responsibility or simply to assume it. There are times when you must get on with the task at hand without ever being formally told you're in charge of it. If you demonstrate that you are a can-do kind of person, responsibility and the higher pay that accompanies it will come to you.

  • Whatever stifles personal initiative is definitely an enemy of individual achievement.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Large organizations – including businesses, government, in the military – are increasingly discovering that their attempts to standardize procedures and centralize decision-making have created a bureaucracy that stifles innovation and initiative. As a result, they are losing ground to leaner, more autonomous operating units that encourage individual initiative.

    A culture that discourages prudent risk-taking and affixes blame instead of solving problems will surely eradicate mistakes – because nothing will be done! Innovation means trying and failing and trying and succeeding. Seldom is a winning idea perfect when it's first introduced. A culture that account encourages people to take the initiative and try something new nurtures individual and group achievement.

  • Don’t let fear hold you back from the personal and professional success you were meant to enjoy. It’s time to master your fears and increase your resilience so that you can regain control of your life and achieve your vision of success.

     

    Fear is one of the greatest obstacles to your success, happiness, and fulfillment, and it is one of the most difficult to combat. It roots itself deep in the subconscious and darkens your dominating thoughts, coloring your perceptions and, in turn, your actions. But fear does not have to write your story. It is simply an emotion—one that can be mastered and channeled to work for, rather than against, you.

     

    This guidebook contains Napoleon Hill’s best advice for throwing off the chains of fear, finding opportunity within temporary defeat, and living life with intention. You’ll learn how to:

     

    Develop the self-confidence, faith, and willpower you need to overcome even the most challenging obstacle;

     

    Reduce your vulnerability to the negative influences of others;

     

    Conquer the seven basic fears by forming new mental habits;

     

    Filter the noise around you and de-escalate the panic of Fearenza and Worryitis;

     

    Harness the power of Cosmic Habitforce to accelerate your success; and,

     

    Implement the mastermind principle to identify new opportunities for Collaboration and innovation.

     

    “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself!”

     

    This famous line from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural address is etched into the public consciousness, but few people know that its inspiration derived from one of his advisors, Napoleon Hill. Commissioned by the great steel magnate Andrew Carnegie to build a philosophy of individual achievement, Hill spent 25 years conducting research on more than 500 distinguished individuals to uncover a magic law of the human mind that guaranteed personal and professional success. The achievement principles he discovered enabled a generation to break the bonds of fear responsible for exacerbating the ills of the Great Depression and world war and raise themselves to new levels of success—and they continue to do so today.

     

    If there was ever a time in this country when men and women need to recognize the power of their own minds, when they need to overcome frustration and fear, that time is now. There is too much fear spread around, too many people talking about depressions. …Let’s get our minds, each and every one of us as individuals, fixed upon a definite goal so big and so outstanding that we’ll have no time to think about these things we don’t want.—Napoleon Hill
