Think and Grown Rich Napoleon Hill – Book Summary/Notes

Determination, persistency, in order to “grow rich” you must first create the mindset and the thinking process for becoming rich. 

Then, It must become a life obsession. You must think about It, the different scenarios and outcomes and envision It. Feel It see It posses It. 

If you want It bad enough, you must be so determined that you convince yourself you’ll have It. 

Edwin C Barnes – no money no education. He knew that he wanted to be a business partner with Thomas Edison. His thoughts were of confidence, as if It was definite that he would become his partner. 

Burning desire – 

“Wishing doesn’t bring wishes. Desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and mean to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches”

Money conscious – the mind has become completely saturated with the desire for It that you can see yourself already in possession of it. 

This is the mindset necessary for attaining ANY definite goal. 

Auto suggestion – if you repeatedly tell yourself certain things, those things will become your truth and will end up happening in physical reality. You can plant seeds that through constant reminding and repetition will result in millions of seeds of the main focus of thought. 

The master mind principle – surrounding yourself with others who have the same desires and motives, paired with working together in perfect harmony creates an intangible force that allows all to learn from one another, taking the power and teachings that they give you, and becoming successful because of It. All successful individuals have had others in their corner. The smarter the group you surround yourself with, the better off you’ll be. 

Sexual energy – those that can learn to harness and channel this energy and impulse (the strongest of any other kinds, combined) are who end up becoming most successful. Having a woman that you love and being able to mix equal portions of love, romance and sex within the relationship is the most powerful feeling one can have, and allows you to pursue tremendous goals. 

The subconscious mind is your gateway to becoming a genius and gaining access to infinite intelligence. It feeds off of emotions and feelings. If you give It positive thoughts and desires, that is what you’ll get back in return, and vice versa.
