Think and Grow Rich (1937)
by Napoleon Hill
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Yes, this book will change your life forever. It definitely changed mine. In what concerns to Personal Development Texts, I would say this is the most complete book about the subject in the market. Napoleon Hill, indeed, covers pretty much all aspects about the power of the human mind to materialise anything we desire in life. And, believe me when i say, I have read tons of books about personal development. But so far, this book is the best. However, to make it more clear, this book is not the best in terms of providing detailed information in each and every aspect of the process of manifestation. Nevertheless, it does cover all aspects of it in a reasonable profound manner. Obviously, if your intention is to expand your knowledge in a very specific aspect of the process of manifestation, for example Persistence, or Law Of Attraction, then i would advise you to get a book focusing solely on that specific aspect. Furthermore, If you are new into this type of knowledge, this would be the first book to start with. It will provide you with a general overview of this Power, and will boost your motivation to expand your knowledge about it. After reading this book, i would strongly recommend Bob Proctor's Book "Thoughts are thinks'. Again, another amazing book!
The bottom line is, once you start reading this type of subject, you must continue reading more and more about it. The reason for that is you must imprint this concept into your subconscious mind in order to use this power properly and effortlessly. And, the more knowledge you accumulate, more your subconscious mind will accept it and use it in your favour. Wish you all the best in your personal development journey. And remember, Be ALWAYS Blessed! Be ALWAYS a Blessing!
I've read this one before and enjoy it for the motivation as well as it's historical value.

What Do You Want Most? Is It Money, Fame, Power, Contentment, Personality, Peace of Mind, Happiness? The Thirteen Steps to Riches described in this book offer the shortest dependable philosophy of individual achievement ever presented for the benefit of the man or woman who is searching for a definite goal in life.
"This is not a novel. It is a textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the experiences of hundreds of America's most successful men. It should be studied, digested, and meditated upon." (Dr. Miller Reese Hutchison).
After reading the story, you will realize that you are about to come into possession of a philosophy which can be transmuted into material wealth, or serve as readily to bring you peace of mind, understanding, spiritual harmony and help you master physical affliction..

Well, I’m still kinda a “negative”, analytical (take-apart) person, that’s a strong thread in my makeup, so, I’ll just dive right in. Nappie isn’t perfect. He brings up politics occasionally, and although for the first half of the 20th century he was pretty tolerant and open—and any self-help then was an innovation; the FDR years were when AA was new, actually T&GR is kinda like AA in that they are both spiritual “self-help”, but old-fashioned and terminology-light enough to seem rather neutral and secular to a lot of non-woo woo people—but anyway Nappie also does have that element where he steps onto the soap box in the middle of a pub and harangues people about America and such…. “How much has he had?” “(waves hands) Oh, nothing. That’s just the libertarian.”—….
I mean, examples Are important—which is why there must be a good half dozen books at least of “Think and Grow Rich for (non white male group)”—but…. I don’t know. It’s not Overly important. Basically Nappie lays out the social and spiritual laws of making money, and this is what he does well, and does most of the time. It’s true that some people who have become creators have created imperfectly. But unless you think that Everyone, Necessarily creates imperfectly, that You necessarily create imperfectly, then…. Why not? If it can work, why can’t it work for you?
As for the laws themselves, I guess the ones that are most obviously lacking in my past life (the first 33 years), are—off the top of my head, in no particular order, persistence, the master mind group, and desire. The first time I was in business—I was very young—I kinda half-believed and thought Id really buy in emotionally once it started to work and kinda shuffle around looking the right way till then, and once it really seemed to not work, I gave up. I also didn’t like needing the company of other prosperity thinkers; for a long time in all aspects of success, even emotional regulation books, I was like—Fix me, but don’t change me! (😸). And also, desire. Desire can go wrong, so sometimes we think it can’t go right. Most people IMO are like the guy in John’s gospel who wants to be healed but doesn’t want to take action and doesn’t think Jesus can, either. Resigned, but impatient. (Sitting by the pool for 38 years.) For awhile I got all the way on the other side of this, like I would’ve: You’ve probably had a long day, Jesus. Just sit down; I’ll tell you stories. And the Jewish miracle worker would’ve: Maybe we can futz around later, after I heal you? Do you want that to happen?
You know, it’s like, It’s okay to want money. It’s okay to want money. It can be worth having. It doesn’t mean you have to be attached, like now you think that’s the reason why are you are (or are not) a real man, or that flow bothers you because you have to have it, or anything like that. Just let it go, let it flow. Receive.
And make a plan, take action, conspire with the saints, and persevere.
…. Obviously there are things you wouldn’t believe, in a five minute review.
But I’ll say that Nappie does have some claims to being a liberal, and not only of the FDR years/Lost Generation, you know. (He’s a bit of a libertarian too, but even there there are passages where he claps back against the alarmists. Actually, he does that a lot, in his way.) He’s certainly not the sort Enneagram Six that I’ve been; he’s not into being afraid. “But I thought that fear was God’s greatest gift to Christians!” 😸😵💫
Certainly Christianity in its full flower is nice, but sometimes the church needs to be reminded, and things like AA or the Carnegie secret can be one of those things, that it shouldn’t be a license to frighten people and rag at them, right.
Maybe if you decide to make a million dollars and do it, you’ll need a whole book to decide how to be the most responsible millionaire; of course you will, perhaps. But you also need a book to show you that there are good things in this world, and that living need not be hidden from, or suffered.
