What exactly is success? According to Andrew Carnegie, success is “the power with which to acquire whatever one demands of life without violating the rights of others”. To achieve it, the first thing we need to do is look inside ourselves, then link our inner world to our everyday life, and once we have done so, enlist the help of others. This can all be achieved by following the principles of Napoleon Hill, who having learned them directly from Andrew Carnegie, the great American entrepreneur and philanthropist, relates them with great detail, in his book The Wisdom of Andrew Carnegie as told to Napoleon Hill.

American writer and essayist born in poverty in 1883, Napoleon Hill is one of the first authors of the literary genre dedicated to personal success. His most famous work is Think and Grow Rich, which sold 30 million copies in the original edition, but in his career Hill has written dozens of articles and books (including a series of 17 volumes titled Mental Dynamite, used in his training courses). "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve." is one of his most famous phrases.
