The Winners Creed by Napoleon Hill and Kurek Ashley:
I know that I have the ability to achieve my definite purpose in life; therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action towards its attainment, and I here and promise to render such action. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice; therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it effects. I am succeeding by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use and the cooperation of other people. I induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others. I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, Selfishness, cynicism anger and fear by having true love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude towards can never bring me success. I cause others to believe in me, because I believe in them and in myself. This is my creed, my quest. To never stop striving for the top, to always keep moving forward, to always be the very best I can be. I am the power. I am the magic. I can not be stopped. I am a winner. I promise to always be true to myself, because I am the creator and master of my universe, and am responsible for making a positive difference in the world and to the quality of life in it. I live in constant and never-ending improvement.
