Dedicated to making the world a better place to live
On August 21, 1962, Dr. Hill and his wife, Annie Lou, founded the Napoleon Hill Foundation to make available in perpetuity the success principles he spent a lifetime identifying and sharing with others. The Napoleon Hill Foundation is dedicated to making this world a better place in which to live, for this and future generations.
The Foundation, a not-for-profit Educational Foundation, was established to foster, perpetuate, and disseminate throughout the world, by publication and instruction, the lifetime research, writings, and teachings of Dr. Napoleon Hill.
An Essay on Life
By Napoleon Hill
Life, you can’t subdue me because I refuse to take your discipline too seriously. When you try to hurt me, I laugh — and the laughter knows no pain. I appreciate your joys wherever I find them; your sorrows neither frighten nor discourage me, for there is laughter in my soul.
Temporary defeat does not make me sad. I simply set music to the words of defeat and turn it into a song. Your tears are not for me, for I like laughter much better, and because I like it, I use it as a substitute for grief and sorrow and pain and disappointment.
Life, you are a fickle trickster — don’t deny it. You slipped the emotion of love into my heart so that you might use it as a thorn with which to cut my soul — but I learned to dodge your trap with laughter. You tried to lure me with the desire for gold, but I have fooled you by following the trail which leads to knowledge instead. You induced me to build beautiful friendships — then converted my friends to enemies so you may harden my heart, but I sidestepped your figure on this by laughing off your attempts and selecting new friends in my own way.
You caused men to cheat me at trade so I will become distrustful, but I won again because I possess one precious asset which no man can steal — it is the power to think my own thoughts and to be myself. You threaten me with death, but to me death is nothing worse than a long peaceful sleep, and sleep is the sweetest of human experiences — excepting laughter. You build a fire of hope in my heart, then sprinkle water on the flames, but I can go you one better by rekindling the fire — and I laugh at you once more.
You have nothing that can lure me away from laughter, and you are powerless to scare me into submission. To a life of laughter, then, I raise my cup of cheer!

From Judith Williamson
Director of Napoleon Hill World Learning Center
To believe in something prior to actual manifesting requires a person to have determined faith in overcoming the impossible.Faith is a prerequisite to achievement. Applied faith is the very next, crucial step. When you apply your belief, you are then stepping into your future. A person with a purpose and a plan is undefeatable if this formula is leveraged well.
When our faith is in exquisite shape our end performance will be profound because we are removing all doubt about the picture perfect end result we have envisioned in the conceive portion of the formula. Faith is an elixir that performs exactly to our expectations. When the container of Faith is opened and the elixir is released, the essence is not easily coaxed back into the bottle. So, we must expect the very best when we unleash our faith in the outcome, and then apply steps to make our dream perform right up to our expectations. It’s as easy as ABC but only in reverse!
Conceive It! Believe It! Achieve It!
