What Is So Great About Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill?

When I think about the books I’ve read that changed the way I think and feel about my life, one of the top ones is Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, and it can help you in your life, too.

Summary of Think and Grow Rich

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon HillThe book, Think and Grow Rich was, for me, about more than just finding a way to improve my financial situation.

It opened my eyes to the possibility that everything that was weighing my life down could be resolved.

It gave me hope and it inspired me to make some big changes in my life and work.

Positivity Led Me to This Book

I had run across some of Hill’s positivity quotes and wanted to learn more about him and bought the first book of his that I found for sale – this one.

I wasn’t reading it to find out how to fix my finances, though they certainly needed fixing, I just wanted to see more of the man’s work.

While there is so much in the book that you can use to inspire positive change in your life, I feel the key takeaway (if I have to narrow it down to one main thing) is that learning how to communicate positive messages to your subconscious mind can, in fact, lead you to the tools you need to change your life.

The rest of the book gives you an in-depth summary of just how you can make it all work.

Why You Should Listen to Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was given the idea for this book by Andrew Carnegie – the one who was so uber-wealthy and brilliant in business that business students still study him and try to learn how to emulate his business success today.

Hill spent the next few decades researching, interviewing other ultra-wealthy businessmen, studying, and putting the things he learned into practice in his own life.

What You Can Learn About Modern Day Success From an Old Book

It’s easy to glance at an old book like this one, published in 1937, and think that it doesn’t apply to modern life or creating success in today’s world since it’s almost 80 years old, but that  couldn’t be further from the truth.

The principles covered in Think and Grow Rich tap into principles that have been in play since human beings have been around, trying to find ways to survive and thrive in this world – and you can use those principles to your advantage in any part of your life – if you are ready and you choose to.

6 Inspiring Napoleon Hill Quotes From Think and Grow Rich

“The starting point of all achievement is desire.”

“Any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought.”

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”

“Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.”

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”

“The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.”

Personally, I loved Think and Grow Rich, and I found information in it that led me to change far more than my financial situation for the better, and I wish I could quote the whole book to you – but that would be pointless since Napoleon Hill already wrote it.
