“Make measurable progress in reasonable time” – Jim Rohn. It’s one of my favourite quotes, and something I’ve lived by after reading Think and Grow Rich.
In this post I’ll explain how the book that has created more millionaires than any other book changed my life. But first if you haven’t already done so please read Think and Grow Rich, whether you read one word, one page, one chapter or the whole book you’re sure to get something of value. You may only need one more idea to totally transform your life.
The book reignited my belief. If this was the only thing of value I took from the 1937 classic I’ve have been more than happy, ecstatic in fact. How did it give me belief I hear you ask. At the time I felt like a failure, my business was going down hill and I believed there was nothing I could do to turn it around. I thought wrong and the book showed me examples of successful people from history, who struggled and then became successful. People like Henry Ford,… and Andrew Carnegie, who gave Napoleon Hill the idea for Think and Grow Rich.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit” – Napoleon Hill
It all started here…
My personal development journey started here. Without this book I may not have been inspired to invest more time and money in myself than in the business. As Jim Rohn says one of the keys to success is to “Work harder on yourself than you do your job”. It also sparked the turnaround in my business as I was able to bring in over 500 new customers in 2014. After reading Think and Grow Rich I have read over 150 self improvement books and listened to hours of audios!
I’d love to know if Think and Grow Rich had an impact on your life, please leave a comment with your story! Thanks again for reading and I’ll see you soon.
