THINK AND GROW RICH
This is the Ultimate book on success, wealth, prosperity and financial independence.
It was written by Napoleon Hill in 1937, after interviewing, living with and studying 503 of the richest people in America over a 20 year period. Some of them include Ford, Wrigley, Wanamaker, Eastman, Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Woolworth, Darrow, Burbank, Morgan, Firestone, and three United States Presidents.
He was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie (who was then the richest man and the first billionaire in the world) to discover and put ‘the secret’ of success in a book so that all future generations would no longer have to search for it.
Hill distilled his findings into a 13-step formula into one of the most important books of our century – Think and Grow Rich. Think and Grow Rich is the largest selling book in print (other then the Bible and the Quran).
Every single person who is a success once read Think and Grow; and everyone who read Think and Grow Rich and did what it says became a success. Such is the credential of this book among books.
I became acquainted with this great book when I first met my Master the great Guru Bob Proctor (of The Secret fame) in 1992. Bob considers Think and Grow Rich to be his bible of sorts.
THE GREAT SECRET (Dr. Napoleon Hill)
In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill talks about the Great Secret. Right in the forward he makes a promise, ”Those who once acquire it (the secret) and use it, find themselves literally swept on to success with but little effort. And they never again submit to failure.
Hill claims that the working principle behind the working of this secret is Persistence. He goes on to say, “Just get hold of an idea and stick with the idea”.
If you have never read a book in your life from cover to cover or you are not one of those book reading worms, then I advise you – let Think and Grow Rich be the only book that you read and re-read, till you have an ‘emotional understanding’ of the book. And I promise you that your life will never be the same again.
I am going to start you on Step 1: DESIRE. If you truly want to be a success, I suggest you get a copy of Think and Grow Rich ASAP, and thus may I welcome you onto a journey onto untold wealth, prosperity and riches beyond your wildest dreams.
For Hill did say, “When riches come, they will come so fast that it will make your head spin. And you will be wondering where they have been hiding all these while!”
Step One – Desire: The Starting Point of All Achievement
Desire truly is the starting point of all achievement. To achieve any goal in life, first you must want it so much so that you can practically taste it.
Choose a definite goal and place all your energy, all your willpower and all your effort to the achievement of that goal. Leave yourself no way of retreat. Think to yourself that you have to win, or perish in the attempt. Only by doing so will you attain a burning desire to win and that is essential for success at anything.
Wishing alone will not bring riches. You must desire riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession. You must then plan definite ways and means to acquire riches, and back those plans with persistence.
The method by which the desire for riches can be transmuted into actual riches consists of six steps:
Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is insufficient merely to say, “I want plenty of money”.
Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. “Something for nothing” is a misconception.
Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money.
Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night and once after arising in the morning. You must believe that you are already in possession of that money.
That’s it for now, till we meet again in yet another book sharing.
Go get the book… embark upon your journey of Happiness, Health, Wealth and Success like millions have!
