Rare Napoleon Hill Writings: January 1921

Napoleon Hill is the author of the always-in-print classic, Think and Grow Rich.

I’ve found writings of his in the public domain at Google Books. I’m not an expert in his work, but I have to think this material is rare and possibly hasn’t been seen since it was first published.

This is the sixth post of this series with his rare writing.

This one is another odd appearance. It’s a trade magazine for the glove industry. Hill’s work is basically a short filler.

Rare Napoleon Hill Writings: June-July 1918

Napoleon Hill is the author of the always-in-print classic, Think and Grow Rich.

I’ve found writings of his in the public domain at Google Books. I’m not an expert in his work, but I have to think this material is rare and possibly hasn’t been seen since it was first published.

This is the third post of this series with his rare writing.

A note first of all. The cover of the June 1918 issue of Modern Methods was not in the PDF. I don’t know if Google ScanOps missed it or if there was no cover. The July cover will stand in for it, since this Hill piece ran in both June and July issues. Also note the July cover is monochromatic, not color. Again, I don’t know why.

Napoleon Hill writes about something he knows very well: Selling your personal services!

When Limits Strengthen

After the break, a video you don’t want to miss and will want to share with others!

This is Napoleon Hill’s adage in action in real life!

Start where you stand, work with whatever tools you have at your command, and you will acquire better tools as you go along.

Interesting Challenge, This

You don’t really want a million dollars

[I]f you’re not the type of person who can create freedom without a million dollars, you probably aren’t the kind of person who will get a million dollars.

Napoleon Hill famously said:

Start where you stand, work with whatever tools you have at your command, and you will acquire better tools as you go along.

And he also observed:

Gandhi had no money, no home, he did not own a suit of clothes, but he did have power. How did he come by that power?

Napoleon Hill At Internet Archive

Lay off. He fascinates me. I’ve read his biography. Have you?

Anyway, some rare goodies there and the usual suspects (and some are rather suspect; did pirates infiltrate the Archive?):

The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons (1928)

Think and Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill about the Wisdom of Andrew Carnegie

And these I thought were pay-for only. If they’re pirated, it’s up to the Internet Archive to break these links:

Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude

Think and Grow Rich: The 21st-Century Updated Edition

Law of Success: 21st Century Edition
