Napoleon Hill on Personal Development

It was Napoleon Hill, author of Law of Success, who once said, What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Hill was born in the late 1800s and died in 1970. He was an American ahead of his time and one of the most influential forefathers of the personal development movement. Today he continues to be one of the best read authors on how to achieve success. Hill was coached by Andrew Carnegie (not to be confused with Dale Carnegie), the most successful business tycoons of the 1800s, and known as most notable philanthropists of all time.

Hill was reluctant when Carnegie chose him to give the world the first practical philosophy of personal success. Hill thought because of his youth and lack of education and lack of finances he didn’t have a chance. Hill credits Carnegie for having delivered a lecture which changed his life and paved the way for helping to change the lives of millions of people, some of them not yet born.

Hill expressed it was Carnegie who called his attention to the possibility of a great power which is under our control, a power which is greater than poverty, greater than the lack of education, greater than all of our fears and superstitions combined. It is the power to take the session of our own mind and direct it to whatever ends you may desire.
