Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill - Summary

This book tries to help you find your path in life by giving you hints on why you may lack success in your life. I read this book after reading the predecessor The law of success and can only recommend it. Beneath you can find the notes that I have taken while reading it. I still advice you to read it yourself.

Introduction

Success comes to those who become success conscious Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.

You are "the master of your fate, the captain of your soul," because we have the power to control our thoughts.

Follow steps:

Faith visualization of and belief in attainment of desire

ALL IMPULSES OF THOUGHT HAVE A TENDENCY TO CLOTHE THEMSELVES IN THEIR PHYSICAL EQUIVALENT

Auto-suggestion the medium for influencing the subconscious mind

Specialized knowledge, personal experiences or observations

An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.

SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE is among the most plentiful, and the cheapest forms of service which may be had! If you doubt this, consult the payroll of any university.

The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.

Imagination: the workshop of the mind

Organized planning, the crystallization of desire into action

The relationship of employer and employee, or of leader and follower, in the future, will be one of mutual cooperation, based upon an equitable division of the profits of business.

How to outwit the six ghosts of fear

Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in the form of an impulse of thought . MAN'S THOUGHT IMPULSES BEGIN IMMEDIATELY TO TRANSLATE THEMSELVES INTO THEIR PHYSICAL EQUIVALENT, WHETHER THOSE THOUGHTS ARE VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY

So important:

Worry is a state of mind based upon fear.

Whip the fear of poverty by reaching a decision to get along with whatever wealth you can accumulate WITHOUT WORRY. Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision NOT TO WORRY about what other people think, do, or say.

Without doubt, the most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people.

You have ABSOLUTE CONTROL over but one thing, and that is your thoughts.

It was a great surprise to me when I discovered that most of the ugliness I saw in others, was but a reflection of my own nature

Be the first to know when I post cool stuff. Woof!
