THE 17 PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT
(from Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success)

1. Develop DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE—with PMA
You should have one high, desirable, outstanding goal, and keep it ever before you. (Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, you can achieve—when you have PMA and apply it)

2. Establish a MASTERMIND ALLIANCE—with PMA
A mastermind alliance is two or more minds working together in the spirit of perfect harmony toward the attainment of a specific objective.

3. Assemble an ATTRACTIVE PERSONALITY—with PMA
Your personality is your greatest asset or greatest liability, for it embraces everything that you control: mind, body, and soul. (Do unto others as you would have others do unto you)

4. Use APPLIED FAITH—with PMA
Faith is a state of mind through which your aims, desires, plans, and purposes may be translated into their physical or financial equivalent. (Prayer is your greatest power!)

5. Go the EXTRA MILE—with PMA
Render more and better service for which you are paid, and do it with a positive mental attitude. (Make going the extra mile with PMA a habit!)

6. Create PERSONAL INITIATIVE—with PMA
Personal initiative it the inner power that starts all action. It is the power that inspires the completion of that which one begins. (Use and develop the self-starter—DO IT NOW!)

7. Build a POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE
A positive mental attitude is the right, honest, constructive thought, action, or reaction to any person, situation, or set of circumstance that does not violate the laws of God or the right of one’s fellowman. (Maintain the right attitude—a positive mental attitude)

8. Control Your ENTHUSIASM—with PMA
A person without enthusiasm is like a watch without a mainspring… To become enthusiastic about achieving a desirable goal, keep you mind on that goal day after day. (To be enthusiastic…act enthusiastically!)

9. Enforce SELF-DISCIPLINE—with PMA
Self-discipline enables you to develop control over yourself … [and] begins with mastery of your thoughts, what you really are, what you really do. (Direct your thoughts, control your emotions, ordain your destiny with PMA)

10. THINK ACCURATELY—with PMA
Separate facts form fiction or hearsay evidence. Separate facts into classes: important and unimportant. (Truth will be truth regardless of a closed mind, ignorance, or refusal to believe)

11. Control YOUR ATTENTION—with PMA
Controlled attention is the act of coordinating all the faculties of the mind and directing their combined power to a given end or definite objective. (Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want)

12. Inspire TEAMWORK—with PMA
Teamwork is the willing cooperation and the coordination of effort to achieve a specific objective. (That which you share will multiply; that which you withhold will diminish)

13. Learn from ADVERSITY AND DEFEAT—with PMA
Every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit for those who have PMA and apply it. (The worst thing that happens to you may be the best thing that can happen to you if you don’t let it get the best of you)

14. Cultivate CREATIVE VISION—with PMA
Man’s greatest gift is his thinking mind. It analyzes, compares, chooses. It creates, visualizes, foresees, and generates ideas. (What can be conceived can be created—with PMA)

15. Maintain SOUND HEALTH—with PMA
You are a mind with a body. To maintain a health consciousness, think in terms of good physical health, not in terms of illness or disease… what your mind focuses upon your mind brings into existence, whether it is financial success or physical health. (I feel healthy! I feel happy! I feel terrific!)

16. Budget your TIME AND MONEY—with PMA
Inventory yourself and your activities. Intelligently balance your use of time and resources, both business and personal. (You don’t always get what you expect unless you inspect—with PMA)

17. Use COSMIC HABITFORCE—with PMA
All of us are ruled by habits. These are fastened upon us by repeated thoughts and experiences … We create patterns of thought by repeating certain ideas or behavior until the Law of Cosmic Habitforce takes over those patterns and makes them more or less permanent unless or until you consciously rearrange them. (Sow an act, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny)
