Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was an American author in the area of the new thought movement who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on success. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time. Hill's works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. He became an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1936. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve" is one of Hill's hallmark expressions. How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach of the average person, were the focal points of Hill's books.

“Anything the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

Within this one line is distilled a success formula so simple that anyone can apply it—and yet so demanding that only a minority of the population ever fully lives it out. Upon it was built a success philosophy that explains how human desires can be translated into material reality, a framework that rests upon the power of thoughts to seek expression in physical form. Through this singular concept, the world’s wealthiest and most successful individuals—rich in money, relationships, power, peace of mind, and social standing—have built and maintained their prosperity. It is the foundational principle of Napoleon Hill’s Science of Success program, an achievement philosophy that effectively helped end the Great Depression and that has since made more millionaires, cultural icons, and thought leaders than any other.

Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age thirteen as a mountain reporter for small-town newspapers. In 1908, as a young special investigator for a nationally known business magazine, he was sent to interview the great steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. During that interview, Carnegie shared the secrets that had enabled him to acquire hundreds of millions of dollars—a magic law of the human mind, a little-known psychological principle that was amazing in its power.

Believing that this magic formula should be shared with those who did not have the time or resources to discover it on their own, Carnegie tasked Hill with spending twenty years or more developing this principle into a philosophy of personal success. This research would be conducted without pay; Carnegie merely provided Hill with access to over five hundred of America’s greatest business leaders in order to test his success formula. In 1937, after twenty-nine years of research and writing, Hill published Think and Grow Rich, which contains the thirteen success principles that form the core of the Science of Success. Since its release, it has sold over one hundred million copies worldwide. No literary work in the personal development genre has had a greater creative impact than Think and Grow Rich.
 
Following the success of his 1937 landmark bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote Outwitting the Devil, an exposé on the methods the Devil uses to ensnare and control the minds of human beings. Exploring the innermost depths of the psychology of motivation to understand why so many individuals, including himself, cannot find the initiative and courage they need to consistently implement the philosophy of individual achievement, Hill went so far as to interview the Devil himself. The resulting confession from the Devil made this book so controversial as to remain unpublished for over 70 years. Now it is your turn to break the Devil’s code and free yourself from the hidden methods of control that lead to ruin.

In this reproduction of the complete text of Hill’s original manuscript is laid out the exact nature of the power by which the Devil disarms human beings with fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy so that they do not reach their full potential. This is the same power that paralyzed millions of individuals with fear and despondency during the Great Depression and continues to hold people back from their dreams. Complacency and mediocrity are not the root issue; they are symptoms of deeper ills that we are conditioned by society to accept. But you must open your mind to acquire knowledge and consider facts that might not harmonize with your personal beliefs in order to access a greater truth that will, as Hill said in his original preface, “bring harmony out of chaos in this age of frustration and fear.”

If you have been the victim of lost courage, weakened enthusiasm, and lack of self-discipline—if you are demoralized and plagued by fear, anxiety, overwhelm, or apathy—the seven principles to freedom detailed in this book herald your redemption. You will finally become independent of the causes of failure and misery, break the bonds of destructive habits, and unlock the secret of a natural law as significant as the law of gravity so that you can outwit the devil once and for all.
