The Think and Grow Rich Thread

Have you read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill :?:

What are your general thoughts on the book? Have you read any other work by Hill? Did it impact the way that you set goals, or did it have an effect on you in any way?

Hi Lynn,

I love Think and Grow Rich. It has to be one of the main contributors to my success. It refined my thoughts and directed me toward my path in life.

One of the main reasons I love this book so much is because it is directly in line with my coaching practice. I give it away to my clients and they love the book as much as I do.

Great book

Hi Lynn,

I've read it several times and I believe it's almost required reading for success. It's been a while so I think I'll read it again soon. Another book I think is great is 'How to Win Friends & Influence People' by Dale Carnegie.

Yes, it’s a success classic, for anyone going into business for themselves its required reading.

One your first pass, take notes, underline and tag the pieces you feel that are important. When you feel like throwing in the towel go back and see what you marked. You will need the recharge.

Writing my thoughts on ‘Think & Grow Rich’ and about its author Napoleon Hill is just like writing about a very dear and respected teacher.

I first read this book when I was a teenager in College. Right from there I can’t recollect how many times I re-read this wonderful masterpiece on success. Whatever little success I have achieved in my life till date, a major portion of that is because of books like ‘Think and Grow Rich’

I have read two more books by Napoleon Hill. One is ‘You can work your own miracle’ and the name of another I can’t recall. However, both these two books are also excellent and highly recommended to all.

This book taught me that human mind is the most important and powerful tool in this world. Through this tool, we can achieve almost anything in life.

Many people are not aware that the son of Napoleon Hill was deaf by birth. However, Napoleon did not admit him to special school for such children. He insisted that his son should study in a normal school. He kept feeding his son with the inputs of positive thoughts and self-confidence. And one day his son regained a partial capacity of hearing by using the process of ‘bone conduction of sound’ (which was unknown at that time). You can read about it in detail in the book ‘You can work your own miracle’.

Here are my favorites inspiring quotes from the works of Napoleon Hill :

“Every adversity, every failure, every misfortune and every defeat has in itself the seed of a greater or equivalent benefit.”

“What human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”

“There is nothing which life has to offer is worth the price of worry”

“Life battles don’t go to the fastest or the strongest man, sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can ! “

On this website you can download the PDF version of Think and Grow Rich.

On my website you can download this book in html format (.exe) for free.

Here is the link : http://www.meditationiseasy.com/downloads/

In my opinion whenever any attempt to build a list of best success books of all times will be made, this wonderful book ‘ Think and Grow Rich’ will be in Top ‘3’ Books.

Regards
Eklavya

Hi Lynn!

8) That is an excellent book. We read it chapter by chapter, week by week in our 30 Day Mental Cleanse class. We read one chapter a week then send in what we got out of each chapter to the person who does the call. On the call several people speak up and say what they got out of that particular chapter and then we all talk about it. It's Masterminding. It's a great way to read the book and to learn so much more by hearing about it through others to hear different points of view that maybe we may not of even thought of. Anyone is welcome to be a part of it. Just go to http://www.30DayCleanse.com we'd love to have you on! :D

TAGR is a timeless classic and I can't even begin to express how it has impacted my life.

One of the most astounding things to me after reading it for the first time was the realization as to how many of these priciples had already been at work in my life before I was ever able to place an actual label on them. The book brought clarity and purpose to a lifetime of positive thinking and action based outcomes.

Once I realized what I had been doing all along was an actual method or process, TAGR assisted me in better defining and applying it within my life to an even deeper degree. And as a result, that has also enabled me to motivate and inspire others to achieve levels of success that were previously not within their realm of consciousness.

Most recently, reading it again also inspired another notion of how technology has entered into the realm of what Hill was teaching. To this end, I was moved to create one of my most successful products to date -Mind Mastery Virtual Desktop System. The gratification I have received from people who have implemented this in their lives and experienced powerful results has been awesome!

If empowering yourself to attain your highest potential is part of your action plan, then look no further than my signature below...

Have Fun & Fortune!

Think and Grow Rich is a powerful book. I read it thrice. Every time I read it again, I gain distinction. It shows me how I can create what I want in my life.

Napolean Hill was so persistent, he went through those adversity, but he became the man he wanted to be. I learnt to never give up on life.

This book help me to realign my goals and myself. That's why I started on my internet business. And also shift the model of my training business.

Pick a copy if you have not read tis book.

Thanks, Lynn. I just pulled the paperback edition of T&GR off my bookshelf and dusted it off. I was trying to recall when I purchased it. The publishing notes indicate this particlar edition was in it's 15th printing November 1990 and I had sticky notes in it with a company logo from a former employer. I remember now; I hated that job!!

I had three chapters bookmarked; Chapter II "Desire", Chapter III "Faith" and Chapter VII, "Organized Planning" ... There's never a bad time for a refresher -- Goes great with morning coffee.

Yes it does :D

I have it printed and bound in a 3-ring binder, with a legal pad full of personal notes in one pocket... and many posties, highlights and scribbles throughout. I refer to it often ;)

I also have it on audio, which I just let play sometimes - either in the car or while working on other things at home. It seems I get something new out of it each and every time!

I agree; I learn something new every time I read this book.

I just finished re-reading TAGR last month; I've read it at least two times per year for the last 20+ years.

I finally got around to ordering a copy of his "Law of Success" book last month and it's going to take some time to read the approximately 1,000 pages.

If I get even a fraction of what I've gotten from TAGR from the Law of Success, it will be a very valuable investment of a little money and a sizable chunk of time.

I've given TAGR away to several dozen people over the years and many have thanked me for the positive change it made in their lives.

All the best,

JD

I'm also got the book Law of Success recently.

Do not intend to read it, but study it. 1/4 into the first chapter, find that it's a book of in-depth success that requires in-depth understanding and thinking.

Truly it is the father of all modern success books.

Hi Lynn,
I really liked that book by Napoleon Hill. One of the great things about it is that a person can apply it to financial goals, and yet, a person can also apply it to other areas of life which would benefit from more self-directed learning. I would highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it before. I would also encourage people to refer back to it as time goes on. After all, we see and understand differently at different phases of our lives. :lol:
