Think and grow rich – a six step plan to become rich!
Posted August 31, 2010on:
I always thought that a person should work hard, earn more and grow rich.
However, Napoleon Hill suggests that first, change your thinking if you want to earn money and become rich. Once ‘organized thinking’ is cultivated, achievement of the goal to beome rich turns easier! Do you believe this?
Generally it is considered that being rich means being wealthy i.e. having lots of money. However, in the all time best-selling book: Think and grow rich, Mr. Hill has advocated that all the blessings of almighty including our ability to work, a sense of happiness, joy, peace of mind, strength, courage, wisdom and of course money – all are ‘riches’ and hence, one can achieve richness by ‘thinking’ first and then working towards them.
Think and grow rich is the book which took 25 years in making!
Story of the book is quite fascinating. One day Mr. Hill was asked by one of the billionaires of his time, Mr. Andrew Carnegie, to work for him – free!
What was the work? Mr. Hill was asked to meet and interview rich people of that time. Mr. Carnegie thought that much of what is taught in schools cannot make a person rich. Rather its the school of experience and life through which people can learn on getting more in life. Mr. Hill was asked that once he started working on the project and if the project’s spirit is correct, Mr. Hill will become rich in the process. What did Mr. Hill do? He accepted the challenge!
After completing the book and its publication, it became one of the all times best selling book which made Mr. Hill rich and wealthy.
This book is considered to be as one of the best in harnessing our thoughts and taking an organized approach towards ‘thinking’. The first line of the first chapter is: Truly “Thoughts are things” – This reminds us of the best selling book: “The Secret” (You can read about Rhonda Byrne’s international best seller from: http://wp.me/pHUHq-4q)
Before we explore the ideas from this book, in this post, let me share with you a six step process explained by author to become rich.
Let me know of your thoughts. More ideas from this fascinating book will be published in coming week:
First step: Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you want. It is not enough to say: I want plenty of money.
Second step: Determine exactly what you intend to give in return of money you want. There is no reality as ‘something for nothing’
Third: Establish a definite date by which you need money
Fourth: Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and then, begin at once, to put the plan into action.
Fifth: Write out a clear, concise statement of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for acquisition and what you intend to give in return and describe clearly the plan of action
Sixth: Read your written statement twice a day – aloud!
Now, its easy to believe and practice the above and at the same time, it is easy not to practice the above, terming this as non-sense. Choice is ours. However, I was just thinking: There is no harm in trying.
