Napoleon Hill: Ten Rules To Profitable Self-Discipline

Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970) was an American author in the area of the new thought movement who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on success. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill's death in 1970,Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies).
In this list, Hill states the ten rules to self-discipline, which as we all know, is one of the biggest keys to success.

  • Keep cool when others get hot. 
  • There are three sides to all arguments. Yours, theirs & the right side.
  • Never give directions to subordinates while angry.
  • Treat all people as if they are rich relatives  that you would like to remember you in their will.
  • Look for a seed of an equivalent benefit in any unfortunate circumstance that you face.
  • Learn the art of asking questions and actually listening for the answers. (By asking, “How do you know?”, it will reveal opinion or evidence).
  • Never say or do anything to another without first asking yourself whether it will benefit them or hurt them. (Whatever you do to or for another, you also do to or for yourself).
  • Learn the difference between friendly analysis and unfriendly criticism.
  • Remember that a good leader, in any calling, can take orders just as well as he gives them.
  • Be tolerant in human relationships.
