Let s be honest to ourselves and face the truth success in business depends on a complex equation with a lot of variants, such as 1 how well your business idea adapts to the powers of supply and demand, which govern and oppress contemporary society, 2 where you come from economically to begin with I ve seen aromatherapy businesses run by middle class sons of bitches grow and be successful than neighborhood food establishments run by poor honest people , 3 how much investing capital you have at [...]

About his deaf son on page 37 We would not permit him to learn sign language We were determined that he should live a normal life and associate with normal children, and we stood by that decision, although it cost us many heated debates with school officials That stupid statement immediately made me dislike Napoleon Hill As someone who is hard of hearing and can function well in normal society , yet, knows sign language, I take offense to this I take offense that he thinks knowing sign language [...]
I expected a practical guide to managing personal finance, but got something a little kooky On to the next one.
When my dad introduced me to this book he made it sound like every second I wasn t reading it was wasted I was skeptical After all, the book was written in 1960, and I hadn t ever heard of it But I gave it a try, just so my dad would drop it.What I discovered is that rich people are rich because they re eccentric Well, maybe not eccentric, but definitely obsessed with the idea of making money I guess the one good thing this book did for me was help me realize what it would take for me to become [...]
This is the best self help book any entrepreneur could ever read Perhaps the only one they need to Truly transformative I have it on audio too and listen to it at the gym often.Napoleon Hill was tasked by Andrew Carnegie to write a book on what made a successful person succeed, and he spent 20 years researching and interviewing every great name of the day Ford, Woolworth, Edison, etc , plus lots of people who failed because you have to know what doesn t work too This book is the result It basica [...]
Ted, my old boss at KWE Kintetsu World Express first recommended this book to me and told me that it very much changed his way of thinking He said it might do the same to my own thinking I was skeptical and after forgetting that age old phrase of never judge a book by its cover and not reading it for two months even after I bought itI bought it only to appease Ted because I knew he was going to ask me if I had bought itwhich he did I finally sat down to read it and couldn t put it down.I thought [...]

I eat up self improvement books on a pretty regular basis and age or popularity ordinarily does nothing to persuade my interest Given the longevity of this one I, however, relented This was a pretty quick read, gave clear suggestions to improve success, and was full of interesting and inspirational anecdotes.As I continued to read through this book, I found it to become a little samey Like many books of this type there are only a few core elements that the book is structured around The filler of [...]

A lot of people I know speak very highly of this book I disagree It was so terrible I couldn t stomach finishing it This is the early predecessor to the contemporary fantasy called The Secret just think hard enough about what you want and it will happen Sorry to burst your bubble, but that s bullshit Regardless of what Napoleon Hill supposedly researched, desire alone is not a determinant of success Don t waste your time and energy on this book Instead, go read I Will Teach You To Be Rich from R [...]
I have read hundreds of books over the past many years in my quest for success Think and Grow Rich truly stands right near the top It has made a positive impact on my life in many ways Frankly, as with many wonderful books, I have applied the principles in this book and have reaped incredible results.
Unlike Good to Great I don t necessarily see this book as a must read for business I thoroughly enjoyed it myself and found a lot of the advice useful for life and self belief, but as far as a business bible I wouldn t swear on it What I did find enjoyable was sdespite some of the outdated advice, most of the self worth and envisioning thinking goals into existence are still relevant and while people may disagree with the actual effectiveness of them they do help bolster one s self esteem, which [...]
One of the best books I ve ever read It kept me thinking the whole time about the ideas that I ve encountered in this book It talks about the new philosophy of enlightenment with practical applications of it The book talks mainly about accumulating riches, but it could be replaced by any other gaol that one desires This book will probably affect your life greatly if you re not already familiar with the new age of enlightenment If I have to criticize it, it ll be about one thing only that the aut [...]

I d wanted to read a classic self help book, and several modern motivational speakers have credited Napoleon Hill This book was written in the US in 1937, during recovery from the Great Depression Hill asserts that the Great Depression was worsened by mass fear, and this concept seems just as valid in today s economy Much of what is offered in The Secret, including that now trademarked name a term that Hill coined but failed to copyright , is a direct rip off from Hill Hill was challenged by his [...]
DESIRE THE STARTING POINT OF ALL ACHIEVEMENT nu te lasa descurajat de insuccese Dimpotriva acestea trebuie sa te motiveze Wishing will not bring riches But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches To all these I wish to convey the thought that all achievement, no matter what may be its nature, or its purpose, must begin with [...]

Hill accidentally hits on a very biblical theme here you become like what you worship and then works off the assumption that everyone can and should become very rich.At times, I was tracking with him, but he totally lost me with his chapters on sex transmutation using sexual energy to make money and the invisible counselors using imaginary meetings with successful people, such as Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Edison, to gain insight into making money.Somewhat surprisingly, the book actually works th [...]
God seems to throw Himself on the side of the man who knows exactly what he wants, if he is determined to get JUST THAT It all starts in the FAITH Department Published in 1937, this book is the archetype of all contemporary self improvement books Here s why it draws upon the principles of New Thought, its emphasis on positive thinking and the law of attraction The basic premise is this one s external concrete circumstances are nothing than a reflection of one s inner world and dominating though [...]

Do I have to give this a star This is a self help book that has some good ideas, most of which people already know they should be doing to be successful He takes on such controversial issues as never giving up, planning ahead, and the ever progressive and edgy idea talk with smart people to get good ideas The only real problem with the book is he studied hundreds of successful people and that is his research All of the people had their own individual ways of becoming successful, and yet he boils [...]
