Written by Napoleon Hill, a pioneer in the genre of motivational literature, “Think and Grow Rich” provides insight into how great wealth starts in the mind. In the early 1900s, Hill interviewed 500 of the most successful people of his time, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Andrew Carnegie. Readers can use the personal experiences and advice that these figures revealed to Mr. Hill to succeed in any line of work. A few such readers who credit much of their success to principles that they learned from this book are Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, and Barbara Corcoran, three self-made millionaire business moguls who also judge and offer funding to startup businesses on a favorite U.S. reality show.
Going beyond the workplace, you can also apply these ideas to build a more prosperous life in general. The tenacity for which Hill advocates applies to many other goals besides making a lot of money. He contends that the right mindset can lead anyone to be virtually anything that he or she wants to be. A best-seller from day one, this book has reached more than 100 million readers and counting. Although nearly a century has gone by, the tips and strategies that these industry titans shared are just as relevant now as they were decades ago.
Although Hill was quite opinionated and shared many controversial ideas, his methods can transform the way that you look at what you previously may have thought was common sense. The 13 steps outlined in the book may be just what you need to discover your real potential. However, even if only a few of the tips apply to you right now, it will still be worth reading. The examples will leave you more hopeful and empowered. With enough of these positive thoughts and feelings, perhaps you can overcome your subconscious fears and gain the untold riches about which Mr. Hill wrote.
