Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

“Everything your mind can conceive, you can achieve” – Napoleon Hill

Even if it is 70 years since the book Think and Grow Rich was written, it is still a highly respected and read book.  It has sold millions of copies and is a “Bible” for people who are searching financial freedom.

First published in 1937 during the Great Depression, it remains the biggest seller of Napoleon Hill’s books.  BusinessWeek Magazine’s Best-Seller List ranked Think and Grow Rich as the sixth best-selling paperback business book 70 years after it was first published.

Napoleon Hill used over 25 years to study over 500 of America’s most successful business men in the start of this century. He took this assignment on from Andrew Carnegie in 1908. Andrew Carnegie was at the time the richest man in the world and had from being a Scottish immigrant with no money, worked himself the way to become a giant steel manufacturer.  Carnegie believed that anyone could achieve the same success as him and wanted his success formula passed on to the world.  This became Napoleon Hill’s life task.

It offers many questionnaires and practical exercises in addition to all the text. It gives you clear guide lines in how to set goals and reach them and how to make clear plans to follow. You are shown how you can realise your highest potential, and succeed in anything you set your mind to.

It also teaches you not to give up, and see all mistakes as learning opportunities. Napoleon Hill teaches that successful people never consider temporary failure as a permanent defeat.

This is a book I have read a number of times and each time I gain fresh insights into my life and new opportunities for success.  This is more than just a must-read, it should be on your “Read every 5 years list”.
