Napoleon Hill – The Law of Success

The Law of Success by Napoleon Hill is an outstanding book. Over the course of 16 lessons it teaches you the fundamentals of success that go far beyond the realm of business and will allow you to improve almost every aspect of your life. I can honestly say that it changed my life in a major way and I am more motivated, confident and happy than I was before I started to work through the course.


Overview of the 16 Lessons of Law of Success

The Law of Success will teach you about the power of cooperative effort of 2 or more people, also known as the master mind. It will show you why having a definitive chief aim is essential for achieving success and that you need to develop confidence in yourself and your goals to reach it.

Other lessons explain the importance of initiative and leadership, imagination in terms of visualizing one’s success, enthusiasm for the thing one is pursuing and how to develop the self-control needed to stay focused on the task at hand.

It will help you develop the habits of saving and of doing more than one is paid for. It will go on to show how a pleasing personality is a better suited for leadership than one that is based on fear and authority. Lesson 11 talks about why accurate thought is essential for looking at the world realistically. It explains how to improve one’s concentration and why failure is just part of the process to becoming successful.

Finally it will highlight the value of cooperation and help you build tolerance to each other.

The final chapter explains the definition of the Golden Rule and why it is paramount to living life in a way that will not only bring success to you but benefit everyone around you.


Why I Wrote This Summary

While it is an extraordinary book, The Law of Success is also very long at over 1,100 pages. As I was taking notes while working through the book I decided to share them with you because I feel that everyone should have access to this information. If you follow the advice in this course well and approach it with the right mindset, it will change your life!

While this summary contains all of the essential information of The Law of Success, I encourage everyone that is prepared to take the time to read the actual book or listen to the audio book.

  1. Thankyou for sharing the notes.. Bless you!!
    Has it transformed anyone’s life.. I badly need a transformation in my personality, relations and thinking to achieve my full potential and be confident professionally and stressfree.. Wonder if this book or anything else has helped

    1. Hi Amy,

      You’re very welcome and I’m glad you like the notes.

      Yes the book has definitely transformed my life. What it has done is teach me the right mindset to keep growing as a person and to approach everything in life with the right attitude.

      I think one of the most important things in life is to accept what you can’t change, and to generally be less result-oriented.

      Do your best, work hard for whatever your goals are and don’t get discouraged by set-backs. As far as stress goes, meditation can work wonders for that too.

      Hope this helps, and all the best to you!

  4. Hello. I am almost finished with this book, and absolutely love it. I read Think and Grow Rich many years ago, but this goes much more in depth. Thanks for your summary.

    1. You’re welcome. Think and Grow Rich is still on my list. I hear it contains many of the same ideas as The Law of Success. Would you say it’s still worth reading?

      1. You’re posting this purely for summary and not trying to monetize it? How kind of you. And TGAR is a great book. Must read.

        1. I mainly created this site for myself, as a summary I can always access. I do monetize it now through ads a little bit to cover the cost of hosting.

  5. Thank You very much!!! I enjoyed the book and will be comparing your notes to mine. I’ve skimmed over yours on a break at work and they are very accurate.

    1. You’re very welcome and thanks for the compliment 🙂
      I think working through the book on your own while taking notes will leave the biggest impact. It’s always good to go through the notes from time to time as a reminder, maybe this site can help with that.
