“Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting.” – Napoleon Hill
About Napoleon Hill
Napoleon Hill (born Oliver Napoleon Hill; October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970) was an American self-help author. He is well known for his book Think and Grow Rich (1937) which is among the top 10 best selling self-help books of all time. Hill’s works insisted that fervid expectations are essential to improving one’s life. Most of his books were promoted as expounding principles to achieve “success”.
Hill was born in a one-room cabin near the Appalachian town of Pound in Southwest Virginia.
Hill’s mother died when he was nine years old, and his father remarried two years later to Martha. His stepmother had a big influence on him: “Hill’s stepmother, the widow of a school principal, civilized the wild-child Napoleon, making him go to school and attend church.” At the age of 13, Hill began writing as a “mountain reporter”, initially for his father’s paper.
In 1937, Hill published the best-selling book Think and Grow Rich, which went on to become Hill’s most well-known work.
Hill claimed insight into racism, slavery, oppression, failure, revolution, war and poverty, saying that overcoming these obstacles using his “Philosophy of Achievement” was the responsibility of every human.
Napoleon Hill died on November 8, 1970.
