A Well Defined Purpose Ensures Success


Napoleon Hill interviewed and observed thousands of people over a 25-year span. From these interviews and observations, he wrote Law of Success to be taught as a business course in college (yes, this is what our 16 to Success program is based on). Then he quickly wrote an edited version and titled it Think and Grow Rich.

The principles of success are proven to work. It doesn’t matter if your goal is to become a basketball player for the NBA or a recycling tycoon, the path is the same.

The first principle, upon which all others are applied to, is simple.

Have a Chief Aim, a Well-Defined Purpose

“There is no hope of success for the person who does not have a central purpose, or definite goal, at which to aim,” Hill writes.

If you’re looking to make money from your blog, to build a business that allows you to live the life you want, then you must first clearly define what the end looks like.

You must also prepare yourself for it to happen. How? By making a daily practice of reading aloud your Chief Aim. Cement it in your mind as the goal you want to achieve, the end result of the work you’re about to do. It will keep you focused and help you keep moving forward when the day seems long and your efforts seem fruitless.

Do this and you’ll be ready for the other principles to work for you.
