What is think and grow rich about for me?


Well it is about becoming extraordinary in all aspects of my life by applying the 13 success principles like a pro.  I read each chapter a few times, I studied everything and even did some more research on every detail and I found gold…

The book discusses the principles each separately, elaborating on how to apply and use each of the principles in detail.

The  13  principles  are  listed  as  follows

with just a quick look at each:
  1. Desire but not just any desire, it must be a burning desire to the point of being an obsession.
  2. Faith. You have to have rock solid unwavering faith in yourself and in what you want to accomplish.
  3. Auto Suggestion is goal repetition to yourself, telling yourself constantly as much as possible that you want and can achieve your goal.
  4. Specialised knowledge is the know how of what you want to accomplish, the know how of where to find your information and knowledge. The know how of what it takes to achieve success on your journey.
  5. Imagination is greater than education. What the mind can conceive, which is another word for imagine, it can achieve.  In other words, if you can imagine it, then you can definitely achieve it.
  6. Organized planning is where you have to have a clear definite planned out plan on how to reach your goals. You have to be detailed in a well structured plan.
  7. Decision, very clear and decisive about your goal and that you will reach it. Which you stick to no matter what.  Once your decision is made you do not go back on it.
  8. Persistence to work and work and work to accomplish your goal.
  9. Power of the mastermind is having a support team. One that can help you with opinions, information and answer questions that you need in order to succeed.  The more minds you have involved the more powerful your mastermind is.  Something in the line of the WA community.
  10. Sexual transmutation in other words sexual energy transformed into energy you can use to accomplish your goal. The kind of energy you use to search for a suitable partner, the same kind of energy.
  11. Subconscious mind that controls everything that happens automatic like bodily functions and breathing. When you change your subconscious mind to be tuned for success your subconscious mind will make sure that it happens.
  12. The brain is where it all happens. We don’t know exactly to a point how exactly the brain works and functions but we know it works like a receiver and transmitter where thought impulses are constantly received and transmitted to and from you and everything around you.
  13. Sixth sense is your intuition, the sense of knowing. Cultivating this sixth sense through meditation and exercises towards what you want to accomplish.

    Think and Grow Rich is one of the amazing books can help you to change the mindset on MONEY. It is really about change yourself to become more wealthy.

    To be honest, as with many books, I have applied the principles in this book and get the great results.

    • admin says:

      Thank you Dic. Think and Grow Rich is exactly as you say, amazing.

      I don’t completely agree that the mindset should be set on money. The mindset should be changed completely, yes, but it should be changed to think and feel positive. The mindset of money is just part of your goals. It all is about a combination of the 13 principles that makes everything a success, not just one or two, but all of the principles together makes the “magic” change.

  • I don’t know why I haven’t heard of this book before, I’ve heard about Andrew Carnegie but not about Napoleon Hill. What he did is amazing, to come from poverty in the time in which he lived, to become an advisor to Presidents.

    For somebody to do this, he practices what he preaches; the 13 principles described above are invaluable for anybody who wants to succeed. This is a book that should be on my bookshelf.

    • admin says:

      Recently when I came to know of the book and I started to read I myself wondered where the book have been all my life? How is it that I only get this knowledge and know how at the age of 36? I don’t have the answer to those questions but I do know that I am grateful that it did come into my life at this time and not much later.

      Andrew Carnegie and Napoleon Hill are both amazing people who did amazing things. Keeping in mind that they were ordinary amazing people just like you and I.
      I hope that the next book you add to your bookshelf is this one. After you read it of course.

  • ToveL says:

    Think and Grow Rich is definitely a book to keep in mind for me. I am learning about personal growth just in this minute and this book is reminding me of a thing I didn’t think about. I am talking about one of the principles in this book: Desire.
    You have to have a burning desire to the point of being an obsession. That’s fascinating. I will think about how I can implement these principles even better than before.
    Thanks for sharing.

  • First time I’ve heard of this book. It sounds similar to “How to Make Friends” by Dale Carnegie. It’s fitting that the two authors were close. This book looks like an inspiring read. The 13 principles in particular are worth reading it for. I love commandment-style lists like those, and rags-to-riches stories even more. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I’ll be sure to nab it as soon as I can.

      “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” – Dale Carnegie. He believed that it is possible to change other people’s behavior by changing one’s behavior towards them. Dale Carnegie is also a man of influence through his writings, he also wrote some really awesome books.

      Think and Grow Rich is filled with rags-to-riches stories, as he uses these to explain or bring across the point he is making. You will love to read it as there are a few names and stories he writes about that we know from history, but there are also many really interesting ones that I’ve never heard but is really cool.

      Its wonderful that I could help enrich your life with knowledge of such a book, I would advise you get your hands on this book ASAP as it is a real life changer. For the better.

      Thank you for stopping by my site and leaving your comment. I greatly appreciate it.
