This course was created for the purpose of teaching people how to negotiate their way through life with harmony and poise, free from the destructive effects of disagreement and friction which bring millions of people to misery, want and failure every year.”

Napoleon Hill – The Mastery of Procrastination

Napoleon Hill – The Mastery of Procrastination

Napoleon Hill – The Mastery of Procrastination.  The famous author Napoleon Hill wrote many books on success principles. His epic classic Think and Grow Rich tackled many important topics on success. In chapter 8 of the book entitled Decision: The Mastery of Procrastination, Hill discusses the importance of decision making and why it is one of the keys to success.

Hill cites  that one of Henry Ford’s outstanding qualities was his ability to come to quick decisions. In fact, Ford was known for this characteristic and one of his most famous decisions was to manufacture the Model T automobile over the objection of many of his advisers.

Hill notes that many successful people are quick to come to a decision and slow to change their minds. In fact, Hill cautions that many people that fail to accumulate wealth, do so because they are easily influenced by the decisions of others.

Napoleon Hill – The Mastery of Procrastination

Hill is a proponent of making up your own mind and then sticking to it. He advocates not sharing your opinions or plans with your friends and loved ones. He relates that your loved ones, will try to talk you out of accomplishing your plans. They will do this thinking that they are doing what is best for you. If you are easily persuaded than you will never have a plan of  your own.

Therefore, rely on your own research. Look at the example of others. Build a group of close associates that you can share your ideas with. These associates should also be successful people that Hill refers to as a mastermind group.

The main point is that you should formulate a plan and be persistent in carrying it out. When you continuously change from one thing to the next, the odds of your success are dim.

Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, contains a gold mine of advice to attract success. Napoleon Hill’s – Mastery of Procrastination is a great chapter in a great book. You can get a copy of the book by clicking the link HERE or on right of this blog post.

 

Napoleon Hill and the Power of Persistence

Napoleon Hill and the Power of Persistence

Napoleon Hill and the Power of Persistence. Napoleon Hill is the father of the concept of Success Principals. He has performed thousands of case studies on what are the ingredients for success. Has analyzed this subject from both sides by looking at the elements of success and the elements of failure. He is highly qualified based on his research to discuss this topic. As a mater of fact Hill has written a library of books on the topic. His book Think and Grow Rich is one of his greatest works on the topic of success.

In Chapter 9 of Think and Grow Rich, Hill discusses Persistence. He starts of the chapter by stating that “Persistence is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting desire into its monetary equivalent.” This is the theme of Hill’s book how to turn your thoughts into money. Persistence is one factor out of many, that Hill points to that is essential to a person being able to become rich.

Napoleon Hill and the Power of Persistence

Hills believes that you must mix will power and persistence with your stated desires and this will insure the attainment of your desires.

Hill identifies eight definite causes that are responsible for establishing the persistence needed to form success. These eight principles are:

  1. DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE: Knowing what one wants is the first and perhaps, the most important step toward the development of persistence. A strong motive forces one to surmount many difficulties.
  2. DESIRE. It is comparatively easy to acquire and to maintain persistence in pursuing the object of intense desire.
  3. SELF RELIANCE. Belief in one’s ability to carry out a plan encourages one to follow the plan through with persistence.
  4. DEFINITENESS OF PLANS. organized plans, even though they may be weak and entirely impractical, encourage persistence.
  5. ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE. Knowing that one’s plans are sound, based upon experience or observation, encourages persistence; “guessing” instead of “knowing” destroys persistence.
  6. CO-OPERATION. Sympathy, understanding, and harmonious cooperation with others tend to develop persistence.
  7. WILL POWER. The habit of concentrating one’s thoughts upon the building of plans for the attainment of a definite purpose, leads to persistence.
  8. HABIT. Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds. Fear, the worst of all enemies, can be effectively cured by forced repetition of courage. p. 143

Napoleon Hill and the Power of Persistence

Hill encourages us all to take inventory of ourselves and to determine whether we possess these qualities that lead to persistence. A good honest self analysis will let us know where we are deficient and later in the chapter Hill discusses how to strengthen yourself where you are weak.

Persistence is an important key to success because without it, we would all give up too soon and never forge ahead when it appears that an obstacle stands in our way. Think and Grow Rich is a must read for everyone that is trying to break through to realize a truly rich life.
