I am here to introduce you to “Think and Grow Rich” a complete philosophy of achievement written by Napoleon Hill.
This classic success book is the result of over twenty years of intense research by the young newspaper man, who at an early age had the opportunity to personally interview Andrew Carnegie, the richest man in the world at the time. During the meeting, Carnegie saw something in Napoleon and was compelled to further the interview three more days where he would expand in depth on how he created such extraordinary financial results.
Upon wrapping up his success story, Carnegie asked Hill if he would be willing to devote over twenty years of research to develop a success philosophy and to interview five hundred of the world’s most successful people. People like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Theodore Roosevelt, followed by persistent effort Hill learned what it takes to succeed in any calling of life, also known in his book as the “secret”.
What is Think and Grow Rich? It is a philosophy to live by, to earn great wealth with and to help gain personal happiness. It has to do with controlling a state of mind of self belief and definiteness of purpose. Napoleon Hill’s main objective is to get you, the reader to take possession of your greatest asset, your own mind. Napoleon Hill stresses the power of the mind is his book, stating that the power of thought is one of the most potent in the Universe. Which is why his first lesson is Desire or also referred to as Definiteness of Purpose. To know what you want and to know it to it’s finest detail and wanting it badly enough to overcome laziness and lack of ambition.
The Secret to Think and Grow Rich
In the authors preface, it is stated that the “secret” to unlocking one’s potential and controlling one’s personal fate is revealed at least once in every chapter. Hill points our that the “secret” may jump to you as quickly as on the first page or on the very last page. After completing the book you will have a greater outlook on your financial destiny and will be able to locate the “secret” whenever it pops up, through a shift in awareness you will catch on to what Hill is preaching. In this book you will learn the “secret” of the mind, and how a Divine intelligence can be harnessed and used for the good of mankind’s upward development and spiritual enlightenment. The powers of mind and thought are explained in depth within the pages of this magic book, and Napoleon Hill not only explains the science behind this power, he shows you how to use it.
Hear these success principles live from the authors mouth
Napoleon Hill was a pioneer in the field of personal growth and wealth creation, ever though he was not the first to learn these principles of success he was the first to organize and classify a philosophy to live by that had an end result of wealth, and still works to this day. He explains that the operations of you and your mind are spiritual in Nature and are acting in accordance to Divine Laws set by the Creator, whether we realized it or not. Which explains the phenomena of the mind and how it influences so many instances not just economically, but also towards the more broader riches in life. The mind controls every aspect of life, and it is our use and control of our minds that will alter and in the end determine our results. A change of mind, or mental attitude can drastically improve one’s results once he or she learns to consciously control that state of mind.
There is a chapter in the book called “Autosuggestion” and this chapter talks about how you interpret your environment and how your mind picks up and also filters incoming sensory data to fulfill the “blueprint on file” so to speak that is your mind’s internal operating system. What makes up this internal operating system is a collection of sensory data fed to your mind whether voluntary or involuntary like through your environment. Reading this classic textbook is the first step towards changing your internal operating system to a more desirable state. It has to do with the spiritual aspect of you. You have a mind that is one of the highest forms of energy known, and you can either control this energy, or be controlled by this energy and lose all your personal dignity and respect. Another name for this energy that you control is called Attitude.
The power of your mind
Napoleon Hill in his philosophy stresses the importance of definiteness of purpose, this is so because of the potency of your thoughts and how holding a clear picture in your mind of your desired outcome drastically changes circumstance and forces environment to bend and fold to its Will. This is so because you are spiritual and have access to Divine forces that can answer your every prayer. The truths contained in Think and Grow Rich are in accordance with Divine law and mental science which operated whether we understand it or not.
The Subconscious Mind
The part of your mind that is linked to Infinite Intelligence is referred to as the subconscious mind, which “consists of a field of consciousness in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through and of the five senses is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled and withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet,” with this profound knowledge of the mind we can see how our minds are conditioned to think according to files and this shift in awareness represents the first avenue of understanding in changing our world. The subconscious mind is the area where prayers are sent and received, the data contained in the prayers will always be in accordance with files that are in the filing cabinet, the files that are programmed into you. Even if we are consciously asking for something good in our lives, if our operating system is programmed with bad files we will experience bad results, we are going to have to change those files and install new ones before we can proceed and further.
How to improve results with a choice
If you aren’t totally happy with your results in life, maybe you’d like to earn a million dollars, cast off a few pounds, get ripped, or maybe find your sweetheart, by studying these principles you will learn how to totally change your internal operating system and auto-tune yourself for success and prosperity.
