I’m re-reading Napoleon Hill's "Think & Grow Rich" and I gotta tell you, it gets better every time I revisit it! Napoleon reveals a proven formula for using your most powerful asset (your mind!) to dream big and achieve those dreams — a formula literally anyone can use.
What’s the formula?
Here are 12 quick-hitting takeaways about how you can THINK and grow rich. 🙂
🎯 Definiteness of Purpose
"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
Get clear on your goals and know what you want in life. Clarity is the key to success!
🔍 Mastermind Principle
"No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind."
Surround yourself with like-minded people who can help you grow and achieve your goals.
"Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession."
Visualize your goals daily and use the power of repetition to make them a reality.
💡 Specialized Knowledge
"Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into definite plans of action and directed to a definite end."
Focus on learning and mastering the skills that will help you reach your goals.
"The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man."
Use your imagination to create innovative ideas and solutions to problems.
"Enthusiasm is a state of mind that inspires and arouses one to put action into the task at hand."
Be passionate about what you're doing and keep your energy high to motivate yourself and others.
🏃♂️ Persistent Action
"Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success."
Don't give up when things get tough; keep pushing forward and learn from your mistakes.
"The majority of people who fail do not do so because they lack the ability, but because they procrastinate."
Be decisive, take action, and don't let indecision hold you back.
💪 Personal Initiative
"Initiative is the power which starts all action; it is the directing and controlling agency which makes the law of success work."
Take charge of your life and be proactive in achieving your goals.
"Harmony is the key to cooperative effort."
Build strong relationships and work together with others to achieve mutual success.
💰 Money Consciousness
"Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought."
Develop a positive attitude towards money and recognize its importance as a tool for reaching your goals.
🧠 The Subconscious Mind
"The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant desires in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect."
Feed your subconscious mind with positive thoughts and beliefs to support your journey to success.
