Stovall to speak at Napoleon Hill Day on Oct. 24

UVa-Wise News - Fri, 09/23/2016 - 5:01pm

National Olympic weightlifting champion and author Jim Stovall, is the featured speaker for the annual Napoleon Hill Day at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise on Monday, Oct. 24.

The event, organized and sponsored by the Napoleon Hill Foundation, is part of the annual commemoration of the birthday of Napoleon Hill, the Wise County native and author of “Think and Grow Rich,” and other motivational books. Stovall’s lecture, which is free and open to the public, begins at 11:15 a.m. in the David J. Prior Convocation Center.

In spite of blindness, Stovall has been an investment broker, President of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network and platform speaker.  He has authored more than 30 books, including the bestseller, The Ultimate Gift, which became a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox starring James Garner and Abigail Breslin.

Five additional novels have been made into movies with two more currently in production.

For his work in making television accessible to our nation’s 13 million blind and visually impaired people, The President’s Committee on Equal Opportunity selected Jim Stovall as the Entrepreneur of the Year.  Stovall has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes magazine, USA Today and has been seen on Good Morning America, CNN and CBS Evening NewsHe was chosen as the International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and recently canonized Saint Teresa of Calcutta as recipients of this honor.

Steve Forbes, president and CEO of Forbes magazine, said, “Jim Stovall is one of the most extraordinary men of our era.”

Napoleon Hill was born in poverty in a one-room cabin on the Pound River on Oct. 26, 1883.  From these humble beginnings, the Wise County native became an advisor to presidents. During the early 20th century, Hill interviewed the nation’s most successful business leaders, including Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford.  From those interviews and more conducted over 20 years, Hill compiled his eight-volume set “The Law of Success,” a collection of the philosophy of individual achievement.  He later condensed his research to compile “Think and Grow Rich,” often called one of the most important motivational books ever written.
First published in 1937, “Think and Grow Rich” has sold millions of copies worldwide and continues to appear on the list of top business books.  In this classic on personal achievement, Hill introduced the concept “whatever the mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.”  Seventeen principles from Hill’s philosophy of personal achievement include cultivating a burning desire, faith, and persistence in the attainment of goals. Hill’s writings are still must-reads for business professionals.

The Napoleon Hill Foundation is a nonprofit educational institution dedicated to promoting Hill’s philosophy. For more information, contact the Napoleon Hill Foundation at 276-328-6700 or by email at napoleonhill@uvawise.edu.
