Would you like to Think and Grow Rich?

The book 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill offers an insight into how the conscious mind can be manipulated to help you to achieve wealth. It might be considered as the ultimate guide for getting rich. The book examines 500 individuals commonly considered to be the greatest men of the early 20th century. Having sold over 70 million copies, this book is the all-time best-seller in the personal success genre of writing. In this article, we consider some of the top tips you can take away from Think and Grow Rich.


Desire is the starting point of all achievement

The first principle in this book is that you have to want something to get it. You will not get rich unless you have a desire to be rich. This desire is more than a wish and relies on you having an intense and burning desire to achieve your goals. Napoleon Hill suggests that you must fix in your mind exactly how much money you want, what you are willing to give to get it and how you intend to get it. With this decision made, you've started your journey to wealth.

Have faith in yourself

The subconscious mind must, of course, believe in the goals that you have set for yourself. Napoleon Hill states that faith is a state of mind that can be induced by affirmation of instructions repeated to the subconscious mind. By telling yourself repeatedly that you can achieve your goals, you will be more likely to achieve them.


Obtaining specialised knowledge

According to Napoleon Hill, the key to wealth generation is that of specialised knowledge. The possession of general knowledge is in itself fairly useless at generating income, but a specialised skill is what can turn knowledge into wealth. For example, the knowledge of how to fix a leaky faucet allows you to charge people for the service of fixing a faucet. Hill goes on to demonstrate that the key to turning knowledge into wealth is imagination. While you don't need to know how to fix the faucet yourself, you do need the imagination to determine how you can turn this knowledge into wealth for yourself.

Mastering procrastination

Napoleon Hill finds one key failure in the stories of all unsuccessful people he examines and that is indecision. For Hill, the lack of decision is tantamount to failure and he asserts that prompt decision making is a common trait in all successful people. The ability to decide comes from knowing what you want to achieve.


Persisting in your aims

The sustained effort needed to induce faith is the final core principle of Think and Grow Rich. Persistence in pursuance of your desires is essential and is a state of mind that you can cultivate by being definite in your self-reliance, knowledge, willpower and habit.

Think and Grow Rich is an insightful book that has helped many people to shoot for the stars and succeed. If you want to get rich and achieve the dizzying highs of wealth you should read Think and Grow Rich. Hill himself suggests you should read it in full three times to start your journey to learn how you can get rich.
