TAGR is the one book that I read from every single day. A small part, or page, or chapter.

Every day.

Mindset is the foundation from which all other success springs from.

And as Napoleon Hill put it best...

"The only limitations in our mind are those we acknowledge. Both richness and poverty are the offspring of thought."

I really love Think and Grow Rich.

There is so much wisdom contained within, and now that I am a trainer for a Marketing Company, I often teach on the mindset of success and how successful people think -- and to get great content, I go back to that book frequently.

I'm also really into Michael Losier and The Law of Attraction.

I interview Michael on HOW to actually apply the law of attraction in a systematic way.

I've been through my copy so many times over the years that it's literally falling apart.

Ditto that :lol: I have mine in a binder, and I also have several paperback copies - including the Law of Success by Hill.

I always get something new out of it, Hill made a great job of writing it. But I did hear that when he died he was penniless I do not know the reason why.

We're going to have to research that, because I'd like to know too - that's the first time I've heard that.

Speaking of, I just received The Purpose Driven Life from NH in my latest Amazon order. Looking forward to checking that out!

i have been intruiged by Napoleon Hill's life and enjoy realizing how he responded to the news of the times. His first book was in the 1930's and he lived a long life going through major changes in the U.S. like all others his age and his last writings in the late sixties, early70's ???? (not sure exact dates off the top of my head) reflect that. His focus never changed but it is like reading the tales of a historian.

Chapter 1:Thoughts are Things

Postby pilpil » Thu Nov 29, 2007 1:49 am

Thanks Lynn for having this wonderful post on the amazing "Think & Grow Rich" book.
I would like to put up a suggestion for the members of this awesome forum to enjoy continuously to learn or to apply what they know about the book.
How about for each month, we have a post on each chapters.
Members can then post about their experiences or application on tips from chapter 1.

For example in chapter 1:
--------------------
Tip:"I will never stop because men say no." It talks about a little black girl that got what she wanted from a usually fierce white man.
Application:I have use this as a metaphor a few years ago to help me keep going when I get a lot of rejection from doing sales.
Now that I am starting internet marketing, I am using it again to help me keep going to get sales from my blog.
-------------------

If it is favorable to start, then we can start Chap 1, beginning Dec, so comments from members are needed and the go-ahead too from Lynn and other moderators.

Thanks.

Philip

I'm another "Think and grow rich" enthusiast!! Actually I'm reading it for second time and writing a blog with each chapter's main ideas so I have no excuse for not applying his principles on a daily basis. You can also read them at http://clickabook.blogspot.com I'll be soon adding more content!

Think and Grow Rich Extra

Postby DebGallardo » Thu Dec 13, 2007 7:51 pm

I posted this on the Clicknewz blog, but meant to post it here. I know. It's a senior moment thing...
----------------------------------------

I went looking on my hard drive for “Think and Grow Rich.” I found 2 copies. Since I’m pretty sure I got them free (bundled with something else) I don’t mind the duplication. It’s just when I’ve bought something I already own that makes me crazy.

Anyway, I also found a workbook to go along with Hill’s book. It’s by Dr. Joe Vitale and a co-author. I haven’t located where this workbook is available. When I do, I’ll let you all know. Meanwhile, at the beginning of Hill’s book is this marvelous quote from 1912:

“When you work simply for yourself or for your own personal gain your mind will seldom rise above the limitations of the undeveloped personal life; but when you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break bounds; your mind transcends limitations; your consciousness expands in every direction; and you find yourself in a new world, a great world, a wonderful world; dormant powers, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a larger man by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
– Christian D. Larson, Business Psychology, 1912

Lynn, whether you recognize it or not, one of your gifts is inspiring others as you teach them.
