“The daddy of all self-help, motivational books…”
Napoleon Hill is widely recognized as the founder of the modern genre of personal success literature. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time.
After interviewing over 500 of the most affluent men and women of his time, he uncovered many secrets to obtaining great wealth. These secrets are based on the notion that if we can learn to think like the rich, we can achieve it.
Napoleon Hill’s inspirational book “Think and Grow Rich” was one of the many self-help books I read when I was unemployed, and down on my luck. It really helped me.
Unlike all other other self-help books, Hill actually explains how other people overcame their odds, and explains how to thinking can improve one’s outlook, one’s avenue and view on life, on their job and their career aspirations.
Although a lot of people complain that Hill’s masterpiece was written many decades ago by a man who didn’t live in our time and can, at times, be “politically incorrect” about women – it does not detract from the overall message – which is that to the negative, cyncial thought is conditioned into us at an early age – and to beat it – to become rich and wealthy we must change our cynical minds – believe in one’s self, put faith in our actions – and most importantly take action.
If you’re anything like me, you have to “see it to believe it” — I once read the book and got pumped up, but didn’t do anything about it, but the second time I took action and got results.
The magic of Think and Grow Rich is when you put the ideas into action… you must do something, anything – everything — otherwise you will lose the impact of what Hill is saying.
Think and Grow Rich is a an all-time classic and a must read for anyone serious about success, their dreams or their career.
