Napoleon Hill’s work has touched the lives of countless thousands through his lectures, teachings and prolific writings. His internationally-known books, including the classic “Think and Grow Rich”, have become the standards of motivational literature against which all others are measured.
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.
The purpose of the Foundation is to :
- Advance the concept of private enterprise offered under the American system.
- Teach individuals by formula how they can rise from humble beginnings to positions of leadership in their chosen professions.
- Assist young men and women to set goals for their own lives and careers.
- Emphasize the importance of honesty, morality, and integrity as the cornerstones of life.
- Aid in the development of individuals to help them reach their own potential.
- Help others overcome the self-imposed limitations of fear, doubt, and procrastination.
- Help others rise from poverty, physical handicaps, and other disadvantages to high positions, wealth and acquire the true riches of life.
- Motivate individuals to motivate themselves to high achievements.
The 17 Principles of Success Dr. Hill quantified in his writings and lectures aid not only the individual who practices them, but all those with whom they come in contact as well. Those principles, along with his lifelong published works and yet-unpublished manuscripts, recording, and courses, comprise the legacy Dr. Hill endowed in the Foundation and which we now offer you through Napoleon Hill Associates
