How to Think and Grow Rich?

Napolean Hill says that you can Think and Grow Rich. In his 25 years of research of more than 500 rich men and women he outlines the principles followed by almost everyone who accumulates riches.

He goes on by explaining the story of Edwin C. Barnes who had a BURNING DESIRE to become the business associate of Thomas A. Edison. He did the most menial work for Mr. Edison for 5 years but he didn’t give up. And eventually through Persistence and Faith he become business patner of Mr. Edison.

The following are the 4 Big Ideas to take away from this book:


The starting point of all achievement is Desire. To accumulate riches first you have decide exactly what you want and how much you want it. Set a particular date by which you wish to achieve it.

This is important as it motivates you and keeps you focused on what is important to you.

Everyday imagine yourself in possession of all that you want and see yourself as the person you want to become.

Keep doing it until your desire becomes a BURNING DESIRE!


Faith is the visualization of and Belief in the attainment of Desire. It is one of the most powerful of all the major positive emotions.

Faith is something which you may not develop in a day. The only way to develop Faith is through Auto-Suggestion. Keep reminding yourself of your desire and imagine yourself already in possession of it.

Any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through the repetition of thought.


Organized Planning is the crystallization of desire into action. When you have a Desire backed by Faith, it is time to really put a plan into action. Find the things at which you are good and work on those which will help you to fulfil your Desire.

Planning is really important it shows you where you are right now and what exactly you have to do to reach your goals.

Market your services, whether it be online through blogs, videos, articles, etc. or offline like ads in Magazines and newspapers.


Persistence is the sustained effort necessary to induce Faith.

It is the consistency in doing something. The reason why successful people succeed is that they are persistent in what they do!. They have the will power to be focused on their plans.

Times may come when your plan may not work as you expected, at that time analyze what went wrong and change your plans but NEVER QUIT!

Those who have cultivated the habit of persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how many times they are defeated, they finally arrive up toward the top of the ladder.
