What Does Wealth Mean To You?
But first, what does being rich mean to you? Would having the money to buy a luxury car like the Ferrari below cut it? Being rich means different things to different people. Please comment what rich means to you and how it could change your life.
It is hard to imagine Think and Grow Rich was first published in 1937. Napoleon Hill was inspired by Andrew Carnegie to write this book that took 20 years to complete.
He proceeded to interview the business tycoons of his day like Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller, who had what was necessary to build business empires and create enormous wealth.
They used the secret in this book to change the lives of everyone for the better, well into the future. Our lives were forever changed by the utilization of steel and the manufacturing of affordable automobiles.
These tycoons all had this one trait in common – they used the secret to achieve success. You have to make this discovery yourself as you read the book. As I read the book, the secret was revealed to me. It will be revealed to you when you are ready to receive it. Not before.
I cannot tell it to you as it will seriously ruin your experience of discovery. Personal discovery is essential for you to gain the full benefit of the lessons taught in these 15 chapters.
The Secret – Teaser Hints
Would you like a hint? That I can do. Everything starts with your thoughts. You must figure out exactly what you want in life and fuel your desire to own it. This has to be extremely strong. Once you go through this path successfully, the rest will occur naturally to guide you towards reaching your goal.
Suffice to say that the principles taught about how to accumulate wealth today in 2020 applied in the same way as in the early part of the 20th Century. In fact, all successful individuals in history followed these principles in their own way, as they form the foundation to the Universal Laws of Success.
I wrote a series of Blog Posts as part of a Mastermind group in the online business training platform I am a member of. This was a book study where other members shared their experiences and thoughts with the group. The purpose was to learn from each other.
Introduction To The Series
Napoleon Hill had an introduction in the book, entitled A Word From The Author, followed by 15 chapters. Hence, I wrote 16 blog posts where members could read and comment.
The information the members shared was extremely helpful to get a better understanding of the many paths to success.
Education alone on how to achieve something of value will not result in success. It takes dedication and hard work to take the actions necessary to be successful. We need to instill the right habits to make that knowledge work.
That is why there are so many personal development gurus who have evolved over the years. They know this fact and have written books and developed courses to train people to instill these habits in order to succeed.
Think and Grow Rich was a pioneering work in this quest. All subsequent books on personal development were in many ways inspired by this book.
If you asked the authors like Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and Robert Kiyosaki if they read this book, without exception they would say they have.
Since Think and Grow Rich was written in a different era when computers and the Internet didn’t exist, and the successful industrial titans forged businesses in steel, automobiles and finance that are old school. new opportunities to communicate with modern entrepreneurs arose for these modern motivational gurus.
Nevertheless, Napoleon Hill, even his name Napoleon is old school, wrote in a language very easy to read and easy to understand concise chapters, that his work has withstood the passage of time. It will help you develop the habits you need through exercises he lays out in a form easy to implement.
Let me be clear. When I say easy to implement, you have to do the work. It only becomes easy if you have a strong enough desire to get what you want.
This doesn’t have to be only money. It could be about earning a degree. Loose weight. Becoming accomplished in playing a musical instrument. Competing a marathon race. You name it. The lessons in this book will help you achieve it. Even if your goal is to attract a partner in life.
