Think And Grow Rich

How To Think And Grow Rich

“More Gold Has Been Mined From The Thoughts Of Men Than Has Ever Been Taken From the Earth.”*

I first discovered Think And Grow Rich {<Free Copy} by Napoleon Hill while perusing self-help books at a bookstore. The title intrigued me, so I immediately bought it, took it home, and started reading it.

Within a few nights I had finished it. Then I started reading it again. Since that first time, I’ve read it and listened to it so many times that I can’t recall.

I was blown away that such a book even existed, and I wondered why it wasn’t taught in schools. Right away I started to apply its principles to my life, and the results were quick and amazing.

First, I attracted and seized hold of opportunities that I might have otherwise let slip by. I went the extra mile, and pretty soon my finances were turned around. Soon I had more money, possessions, and purpose than ever before.

Abundance and good fortune just seem to flow to me now. You see, the first seed that this book planted in my mind was a money consciousness. I began to realize that I could become wealthy if I first believed that it was possible, and if I determined that it would be so.

By using Hill’s principles of achievement, which he first disclosed in The Law Of Success, I opened my mind to the universal supply, and abundance flowed to me, just like it does to everyone who uses Hill’s principles mixed with the universal laws of mind mixed with action.

The Carnegie Secret

Andrew Carnegie urged Hill to spend 20 years of his life interviewing over 500 of the most successful people, inventors, and entrepreneurs of his era in preparation for this classic self-help book because he wanted Hill to produce a formula for getting rich that could be taught to the average person.

Carnegie, one of the richest men in the world, disclosed his “Carnegie Secret” to Hill. Which Hill hints at throughout the book, but he leaves it for the reader to figure it out on their own.

I understand the Carnegie Secret to have two parts. First, you must have a burning desire to accomplish something, and be wealthy and successful. Second, you must develop your definite major purpose.

Having these two core essentials instilled within will lead you naturally to developing the other principles. For example, your burning desire to succeed will give you the determination, perseverance, and the positive mental attitude that it takes to succeed.

And knowing what your definite major purpose is, will set in motion the powerful forces of the imagination, cosmic habit force, and the development of specialized knowledge, etc. All of which Hill discusses in depth.

The Fires Of Desire

Stoke the fires of your desire by frequently using the law of visualization. See it frequently in your mind’s eye, and use the law of assumption to live it, feel it, and breath life into it.

Then with all of your heart and soul, discipline yourself to work towards your definite major purpose with faith, determination, and perseverance. Indeed, welcome the disciplines by chipping away at the stone, day by day.

Your desire for riches and success will cause your subconscious mind to come up with creative ideas. One of which will grow into your definite major purpose. Then by launching it, you’ll start to attract opportunities and knowledge. And the how to do it will unfold itself unto you.

“What you need to know is how to acquire the state of mind that will attract riches”*

Here’s 2 more Free Books that will help you to develop the money consciousness that Hill speaks of:

Believe In Yourself

Hill writes a lot about faith and believing in yourself and your major purpose. A great Free Book to help develop this power is The Magic Of Believing {<Free Audiobook} by Claude Bristol.

Use Hill’s Mastermind principle to find like minded people who will help you to achieve your major purpose. Unfortunately, I can’t find anyone like minded, so I’ve formed a mastermind alliance with my subconscious mind, Infinite Intelligence {God}, and the laws of mind. But I do delegate things to others when I can, so that I can concentrate on my talents more.

Join The 3% Club

Write your definite major purpose down along with the plans for its obtainment, then read them daily. Remember that only 3% of the population ever writes down their goals, and those same 3% have more wealth than the other 97% combined.

There’s a chapter on the subconscious mind titled “The Connecting Link.” A great book is The Power Of The Subconscious Mind  {<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy.

The Bottom Line

“If you want to be wealthy, study wealth.”**

This is #3 of my Top 10 self-help books because of its insights into wealth building success principles, and also for its sheer historical value.

Everyone I meet would love to be rich and successful, but I’ve never met anyone personally who ever even heard of this classic, let alone read it. What a waste.

But, now that you know there’s a proven formula for wealth and success Think And Grow Rich {<Free Copy}, I’m sure that you’ll at least check it out.

Then again, maybe there’s a reason that Hill said, “The ladder of success is never crowded at the top”
