One of the Greatest Books Ever Written:  Think and Grow Rich

This book can help change the minds and lives of those who desire but have been afraid to achieve their dream.

I have just completed my first round at reading one of the greatest books ever written (besides the Holy Bible), "Think and Grow Rich".  It is one of the most profound books I've ever read.  

This was not my first time reading it.  I read most of it nine years ago.  My mind wasn't ready for what it offered.  I was unsure of my purpose; my finances were a mess (not that it's in the best shape now); I was in the middle of an emotional crisis because of failed relationships; and I was scared and angry at myself and life. Fast forward to today, and I am no where at the point that I was back then. I am more sure of myself. I have a definite purpose, and I know what I want. I am finally getting a grip on my finances, and the desire to be in a relationship is not much of a priority these days.  Not because I'm not interested in dating anyone. It's more so because I am focused on living out my purpose.  If that includes a relationship, whenever he arrives, I welcome him to climb aboard. 

The more confident I began to feel about myself and my future, the more my mind recalled the book.  I finally found a copy online (and a print copy later) and I can't stop reading it.  "Think and Grow Rich" was written By Napoleon Hill in 1937 and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, a Scottish-American industrialist who led the enormous expansion of the American steel industry in the late 19th century. 

This book discusses the personal achievements one can accomplish, whether it be the desire of large sums of money, or other 'definite' personal desires, and how it can be achieved through the 13 principles he explains in detail.  Trying my best to explain this magnificent book in summation, he emphasizes the importance of filling the subconscious mind with habitual definitive and positive thoughts and eliminating all negative thoughts and fears in order to reach well-planned goals or purposes.  

The 13 steps listed in the book are:  1. Desire 2. Faith 3. Autosuggestion 4. Specialized Knowledge 5. Imagination 6. Organized Planning 7. Decision 8. Persistence 9. Power of the Master Mind 10. The Mystery of Sex Transmutation 11. The Subconscious Mind 12. The Brain 13. The Sixth Sense

He also hits on the "Six Ghosts of Fear": 1. Fear of Poverty 2. Fear of Criticism 3. Fear of Ill Health 4. The Fear of Loss of Love of Someone 5. The Fear of Old Age 6. The Fear of Death.

I so wish I could go into depth on the discussions in this book.  I only urge you to pick up a copy of his magnificent book yourself.  I found a free copy of it online and have provided a link to it below.  I do hope you enjoy it.  Please stop by and let me know what you thought of it.  "Think and Grow Rich" has been a life-changer for me, and I will get all that I have set out in my mind to have!  You will too!
