Think and grow rich is one of my top 5 favorite books, and I will explain why in this review.

Does it work

Think and grow rich is a book that covers several topics for those in the pursuit of any for of success, and Napoleon Hill does an excellent job at tying all of these concepts together. If you follow all the steps in this book getting to the goals that you desire will dramatically increase.

Burning desire

One of the greatest lesson in this book is to get to what you want in life you have to have a burning desire to get there. He goes into extreme detail on this topic, talking about having a desire that is so hot it goes beyond red. It is a white-hot burning desire.

Intensity is a necessary if you are looking to get to what you truly want. So it is worth it to take the time to understand what you have a burning desire for.

Mastermind group

In the book Think and grow rich, Napoleon goes into detail of his mastermind group and how they help him. The cool thing is his mastermind group consist both of fictional and non-fictional people. This group helps him stay on track and with decisions on where to go and how to get there.

Have you heard the saying you become who you hang around. Hill Stresses the importance of having a mastermind group, who wants to see you successful. The group must also be a talented group, and each may have their own talents that are stronger than yours in a particular area; Which is a good thing.

Having the right people on your team will only strengthen what desired goal you are looking to obtain.

Love and Happiness vs Doubt and Fear

In another section of the book he lists 10 different things that drive people to act on somethings. It the list Love and happiness are much higher than Fear and Doubt. Stating that people are much more inclined to do something if they love or are happy doing it. Versus being much less inclined to do something if they are in doubt or fear.

So when doing something make sure to do it coming from a positive state, because you only increase your odds to get where you need to if you do.

Have Faith

In this chapter he talks about just having the faith to know everything is going to work itself out. You have put the steps into place so there isn’t a question of if but of when. It will all come together because you did the sowing, now you wait for harvest.

Tie everything together

Since this is a review I did not want to give everything away. I did go over some more important chapters, and the ones I really resonated with. When you tie all the necessary pieces in this book though you are bound to get what you want in life.

I did not really go into detail on taking action, and Napoleon did not stress action in insane detail in his book. I believe this is because if you have a burning desire to see something through, action is secondary. Action will occur naturally if you want something so bad you burn white-hot to get it.

    This looks great. That’s right, if you want something so much and work more than enough, you will get it eventually. This will take time, but it will happen.

    There s also the fact that our thoughts can attract success to us. By concentrating on our goals, we may attract them to ourselves.

    I’ve read these books and they are excellent!
    Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill was the best! I read that many years ago and still read it to this day.
    It changes your life and helps so many people.
    It’s amazing that a book written long ago is still so popular today.
    What do you feel is the best chapter of the book?

      Yes Rob, a truly powerful book that still holds the same merit to this day. One of my favorite sections in the book was having a burning desire, and to create a mastermind group. With those two chapters alone you can go very far. Everything else helps create added bonuses. Napoleon was definitely a man before his time!
