Napoleon Hill [1883-1970] was born in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. When he was 13 he began his writing career as a "mountain reporter" for small town newspapers and went on to become one of America's most beloved motivational authors. He dedicated more than 25 years of his life to define the reasons why so many people fail to achieve true financial success and happiness in their life.
His big break came in 1908 when Robert L. Taylor former Governor of Tennessee and owner of Bob Taylor’s Magazine employed Hill to write “success stories” about famous men. Hill’s first assignment was to interview one of the richest men in the world, the steel magnate Andrew Carnegie.
During the interview Carnegie asked Hill if he wanted the opportunity to organize the World’s first philosophy of individual achievement based upon the principles of success that he and other self-made millionaires had used to accumulate their vast fortunes. Carnegie explained that the task would require years of work and that he would only pay Hill’s expenses because he wanted to make sure Hill would learn the philosophy and prove it worked through his own success and financial achievements.
Hill accepted the task, so Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview over 500 millionaires, and with Carnegie’s help Hill formulated a philosophy of success (The Law of Success), which was a success formula for the average person. Hill’s first publication of “The Law of Success in 16 Lessons” was available in 1925 as a multi-volume study course.
It took Hill almost 30 years to produce “Think and Grow Rich”, which is still one of the best Personal Development books, and since its introduction in 1937 it has influenced millions of people around the world. During his life Napoleon Hill achieved great success as an attorney, a writer, a motivational speaker, and a teacher of the principles of success. He was also an advisor to President Woodrow Wilson and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is one of Hill's hallmark expressions.
Napoleon Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career. His work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation.
