If you’ve never discovered ‘Think and Grow Rich” maybe today’s the day?
THINK AND GROW RICH, the book by Napolean Hill, is one of my favorite books on Success, Money, Mindset and Imagination. A new book, “Right to be Rich” has recently been released with some of Napolean Hill’s quotes on his Success Principles. This is a book you might want to consider for your MINDSET library. Here’s a taste…..
“Whatever it is that you lack in education or knowledge or influence you can always obtain through somebody who has it. Exchange favors and exchange knowledge is one of the greatest exchanges in the world.”
2) Go the Extra Mile
“I don’t know of any one quality or trait that can get a person an opportunity quicker than to go out of his way or her way to do somebody a favor, or do something useful.”
“If you want the mind to pick up an idea and to form a habit so that the mind will automatically act upon that idea, you’ve got to tell the mind what you want, over and over and over again.”
“The subconscious mind only knows what you tell it, or what you allow other people to tell it or what you allow the circumstances of life to tell it…it accepts the things that you send over and if you send over predominating thoughts on poverty and failure, that’s exactly what you’ll get.”
“Don’t take it seriously no matter what it is. During the Depression, I had four of my friends commit suicide. Two of them jumped off tall buildings , one shot himself and another one took poison. They did it because they lost money. I lost twice as much as they did, but I didn’t jump off any building, I didn’t shoot myself, I didn’t poison myself…My mental attitude toward it was to start immediately looking for that seed of improvement.”
6) Thinking accurately
“The truth of the matter is that your emotions are not reliable at all. The emotion of love, is the greatest and the grandest of all the emotions, and yet it can also be the most dangerous. More trouble in human relationships grows of misunderstanding the emotion of love than all other sources of difficulty combined.”
7) Being Enthusiastic
“If you want to do something, work yourself into a state of wild enthusiasm and go to work where you stand, even if it’s nothing more than drawing a picture in your mind of the thing you want to do, and keep drawing that picture, making it more vivid all the time.”
“One of the best things that can happen to you is to meet problems, circumstances and incidents that force you to think, without a motive, you might not do much thinking anyway.”
“Just think of all the things the mind of man has brought forth to introduce people to one another.”
10) Self Discipline
“Be Careful what you set your heart upon because, if you set your heart on anything and stand by that decision, you’re going to get it.”
