Think & Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Ask any guru for a list of their top 10 books for motivation and wealth creation and the chances are they will include Think & Grow Richby Napoleon Hill.  Originally published in the 1930’s, this book would have been amongst the first in the Law of Attraction Genre together with the other book I reviewed, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles.

When studying the Law of Attraction, there is a consistent negative theme from many, that it doesn’t work.  They assume you just think what you want and hey presto it turns up.  However, there are additional steps needed to make it work. Think & Grow Rich outlines in 15 chapters the processes and activities needed to manifest what you want through Law of Attraction.  For this reason alone, it has become a classic to go reference book.

It’s important to realise, this book was written in 1930’s America, when the country was going through the great depression.  There were successful businessmen such as Dale Carnegie, JP Morgan, JD Rockefeller and Henry Ford who were all part of the Industrial Age Boom.  They became very wealthy very quickly.  As people were struggling during the great depression it was important to offer hope and motivation to the population.  This book was promoted as a self-help and personal development book.  By the time of Napoleon Hill’s death in 1970 the book had sold 20 million copies.  By 2015 it had sold over 100 million copies.

Hill spent more than 20 years studying the rich to determine the qualities, habits and attributes they had in common to achieve their success.  As a result, he wrote the book The Law of Successcovering 19 Principals for success.  Think & Grow Rich has a concise 15 principals

·         Thoughts Are Things

·         Desire

·         Faith

·         Autosuggestion

·         Specialised Knowledge

·         Imagination

·         Organised Planning

·         Decision

·         Persistence

·         Power of the Master Mind

·         The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

·         The Subconscious Mind

·         The Brain

·         The Sixth Sense

·         The Six Ghosts of Fear

While the book is about obtaining wealth in money, the principals within this book will help the reader, who applies the principles to achieve whatever they desire.

As the book jacket says, read yourself into a fortune.  The book will teach you the secret.  It will show you not only what to do but how to do it. If you learn and apply the simple basic techniques revealed in the book you will have mastered the secret of true and lasting success. And you may have whatever you want in life.

The great personal development coach Bob Proctor, says he reads this book every day.  Just look at how successful he has been in his life.  Tony Robbins says his book Awaken the Giant is based on this book.  What can the book do for you?

Having read and practiced the principles within this book and enjoyed some of the benefit I can understand why this book is consistently in the top 10 books recommended.  Think & Grow Rich is a genuine classic whose teachings work if you are willing to learn.




The Science of Getting Rich

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles

For my first book review/recommendation I thought I would start with one of my all-time favourite books.  This is one that I read over and over again.  I also have the audio book playing over and over.  The gems of information in here cannot be underestimated.  If you want to know how to make money then this should be a must read for your library.

The book was originally published in 1910 but the points in the book are as valid today as they were over a century ago.  This is an all time classic in the genre of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

In today’s world, it would be considered a type of Law of Attraction book but offers a bit more insight.  Wattle speaks about the Certain Way of doing things.  It talks about creation rather than competition as the path to generating wealth.

The concept of the book, is that the world has an invisible substance that is part of everything we do.  Wattle refers to a substance that penetrates, permeates and fills every living space and how we need to tap into it. He also covers the way your internal thoughts create your external life.  If you dwell on negative news, for instance, then your world will be filled with negativeness.  I can particularly resonate with this as when I started building my wealth, I totally ignored the newspapers, television and all the people who said “you can’t do this or that”. It works to tune out all of the naysayers around you.

The second concept of the book I particularly like is that you are not in competition with anyone as there is and always will be plenty of abundance to go around.  Your job is to be creative and generate the demand for your products and services so wealth comes to you.  Bearing in mind, the book was first published in 1910, Wattles talks about the opportunities that abound in aviation where there is ample scope for creation rather than competition in the fields of rail transportation which were dominated by Rockefeller at the time.  The other part about abundance, Wattle, discusses how there is no limit on the resources around us.  If we need more soil to grow crops there is more soil available.  If we want more gold or silver those resources will also be found as there is abundance all around us.

If you want a book that gives excellent advice in the principles of creating wealth, becoming rich, this book should be at the top of your reading list.

The Science of Getting Rich is a classic book which stands the test of time in relevance to overcoming the barriers we set ourselve preventing us from the creating the wealth we desire and in using the concepts within the book you can create a better wealthier life.
