The First Thoughts of the Father of American
Achievement and Wealth
by Jeffrey Gitomer

In 1917, 20 years before the publication of his magnum opus, THINK AND
GROW RICH, Napoleon Hill began his career as a teacher, philosopher, and
writer at the George Washington Institute in Chicago. There he taught
courses on advertising and selling, but rather than focusing on the more
technical aspects of those subjects, he structured his courses around the
notion that attitude, belief, hard work and personal development were the
keys to achievement.

As a teacher and a writer he intuitively understood that in order to get his
students to succeed, they had to start with the foundation of believing in
themselves, having a positive attitude, and making a plan before they could
ultimately achieve their purpose.

Mindful of the potential legacy of these teachings, and proud to have created
them, Hill wrote, typed, and hand signed each lesson.
Over the next two decades, Hill would go on to hone his craft and
substantiate his original thinking by interviewing and writing about the most
successful people of his time: icons like Edison, Firestone, Burroughs, and
Schwab. Over the course of 45 years, Hill expanded the positive principles he
wrote about and spoke about in 1917; penned ten books that have sold more
than 100,000,000 copies; delivered thousands of talks and lectures; and
became world renowned as the leader in self-help, personal development and
positive attitude. One hundred years later, he still holds that global position.
But what of those original lessons on life Napoleon Hill taught in 1917? Long
the subject of rumors and speculation, they were thought lost to history – until now.

THE BOOK: TRUTHFUL LIVING
A few years ago, the Napoleon Hill Foundation uncovered Napoleon Hill’s
ORIGINAL writings and teachings. These are not just Hill’s first writings,
they represent the fundamental and foundational thinking that created his legacy.

Napoleon Hill began his career as a college professor in Cleveland delivering
lectures and lessons, and had the presence of mind to document them. These
lessons and lectures were penned 20 years before the immortal Think and
Grow Rich was published. These are in fact the first documented writings of Napoleon Hill.

These are Hill’s original thoughts and ideas about how to focus on your
major goals, have a great attitude, and become successful. These are his first
lectures, lessons, and writings. At the same time Hill was teaching
advertising and selling, he was focusing on attitude, self-belief, writing,
persuading, and philosophy of life and living.

These pages of Truthful Living contain Hill’s original writings and lectures
from 1917. Think and Grow Rich was published in 1937. And Hill’s
immortal sales book, How to Sell Your Way Through Life, was published in
1939. The original lessons and lectures in Truthful Living served as the
foundation of his philosophy, strategy, and thinking for his entire body of
work. Genuine classics. Genuine genius.

I have been given the honor by the Napoleon Hill Foundation to edit and
annotate these writings for the 21st century. With as much integrity as I
possess, I have stayed true to the concepts and meaning that Hill was trying
to transfer. Here’s why. . .

In 1971 when I was first exposed to Napoleon Hill, I was a member of a
fledgling sales team and less than impressed with the prospect of learning
about “positive attitude.” In training with my fellow salespeople, I was
literally forced by my peers to study Hill’s book every day. We had a
morning sales meeting where each of us was assigned one chapter in the book
to “report” on. After a while I began to “get it” and during the second read of
the book, only one month later, and daily group discussion with my fellow
salespeople, I became both aware and enlightened that Think and Grow Rich
was a book designed and destined to change my life.

Actually, I read Think and Grow Rich 10 times that year – studied and
implemented both the principles and the directives. The result for me has
been an unbreakable positive attitude and steadfast march toward success
over the past 45 years.

I have had a decade-long affiliation with the Napoleon Hill Foundation. I
create Hill’s weekly newsletter, Napoleon Hill Yesterday and Today, and for
the past ten years have grown it to more than 50,000 readers.
As a result of my positive long-term connection with the Napoleon Hill
Foundation, I have been asked and authorized to compile and annotate the
ORIGINAL writings (1917) of Hill in producing this book.

As eloquent as Hill was, his words were spoken and written 100 years ago.
Not only has time changed, so has the language and lexicon.
With the rare endorsement of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, we are honored
to present TRUTHFUL LIVING – a century-old, modern-day classic.
This book contains the first (annotated) writings of Napoleon Hill that will
impact and inspire you and readers all over the world.

There are twenty-three lessons and lectures about truth, focus, integrity,
desire, decisions, attitude, beliefs, goals, and living. Although written 100
years ago, all of them are timeless gems that have been lightly edited and
annotated where appropriate into 21st-century words and strategies, while
still maintaining the energy and importance of the work as written in 1917.
These are Napoleon Hill’s ORIGINAL thoughts, and FIRST delivered works.
At the end of each lesson I will give you real-world strategies that are easy to
implement, and will have a huge impact on life, family, business, and earnings.
Truthfully yours,
Jeffrey Gitomer
