Think and Grow Rich

This Book Could be Worth a Million Dollars to You
by Napoleon Hill | 256 pages

This uber-best-selling classic is basically the granddady of self-help books. It's about a lot more than making money and in this Note, we'll have fun looking at the power of a strong desire (whether you're the Buddha seeking enlightenment or an entrepreneur creating something awesome, you better have a strong desire!), persistence (!), self-confidence, faith, and just doing it.


“When you begin to think and grow rich, you will observe that riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of purpose, with little or no hard work. You, and every other person, ought to be interested in knowing how to acquire that state of mind which will attract riches… Observe very closely, as soon as you master the principles of this philosophy, and begin to follow the instructions for applying those principles, your financial status will begin to improve, and everything you touch will begin to transmute itself into an asset for your benefit. Impossible? Not at all!”

~ Napoleon Hill from Think and Grow Rich

Described as the best-selling success book of all time, Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich was originally published in 1937.

The classic has sold over 15 million copies, is known as the “Granddaddy of all Motivational Literature” and has influenced nearly every great modern self-development teacher (including Esther and Jerry Hicks—Jerry says he’s read the book *hundreds* of times and used it as the Bible for his businesses for decades).

Of course, when Hill refers to “riches” he’s speaking of wealth in the broadest sense—material, emotional, spiritual, and all that jazz. This is one of the more challenging books to profile because there are sooo many Big Ideas!! So, let’s get to play! :)
