Think and Grow Rich- Book Summary

Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Out of all the books I have read in the last 9+ months, this one really struck a major chord with me. Hill argues that the difference between the highest performers, the ‘rich’ people, the people who are able to ‘achieve success’ all have a mindset of achievement. They decide that they will do something, they do not passively wait for good things to happen for them. Another major thing, and I cannot stress this enough, they have a vision of what success means to them. Hill mainly talks about success in monetary terms, but this goal setting will work with any tangible measure of success. You need to define your life’s purpose to yourself, and obsess over it. Hill uses a lot of money examples since they are the easiest to quantify, but he would argue you need to have almost a mantra that you repeat every morning and afternoon: “I will have a net worth of $2 million by 12/31/2018. I will achieve this by starting a business that _______” you want to paint the picture, you want to visualize it, use all of your senses: what does it smell, feel, look, sound, taste, _____ like. Make it a vivid vision in your mind and do this when you wake up and go to bed. Start your day with this mindset and you will be able to channel your subconscious and what Hill cause the Infinite Intelligence to show you the way to get there. This probably sounds crazy and I am assuming a lot of people would roll their eyes at such advice. This seems to me that it is another form of meditation, one theme that I have picked up on in the last 15+ business books I have read in the last 9 months is the power of mindset in making big things happen. It has been an underlying theme in most of the books I have read. You need to decide what you are going to do, then figure out how to accomplish it. A lot of people go through life without knowing what their life purpose is.. and I think that is the biggest challenge to everyone coming out of this book. What is your life’s purpose??? I am going to ‘try’ to keep this summary shorter than the last few which have all resulted in me basically rereading the entire books. I will go for higher level concepts and see how it goes.

A lot of this book is about how you can translate a desire into reality. There are 13 principles that lead to riches. Hill states “when a man really DESIRES a thing so deeply that he is willing to stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win.” The point is to find your definite major purpose, to know your desire, and to stay determined until you realize it.

Three feet from gold- One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. There is a story about a miner (Darby) who found a vein of gold, which disappeared. He gave up and sold off all his equipment. The Junk man who bought the equipment called in a mining engineer to do some calculating and came back with the calculation that the fault lines behaved in a way that they stopped digging 3 feet from the rest of the gold! How did Darby respond to this huge loss in fortune? He responded by never stopping at the first temporary defeat. He went into insurance sales where he never stops because they said ‘no’ when he asks them to buy. The greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.

“When you begin to THINK AND GROW RICH, you will observe that riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of purpose, with little or no hard work… One of the main weaknesses of mankind is the average man’s familiarity with the word ‘impossible”. This book is about mindset, from failure consciousness to success consciousness. It starts with DESIRE, or knowing what one wants. Henley wrote: “I am the master of my Fate, I am the captain of my Soul” because we have the power to control our thoughts. This power makes no discrimination between destructive and constructive thoughts. We need to magnetize our minds with the intense DESIRE for riches.

Principle 1: DESIRE

  • It takes a keen, pulsating DESIRE which transcends everything else. And it needs to be DEFINITE
    • You may need to ‘burn the ships behind you’ whatever that means for you: quit your job, move, buy a one way ticket… Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win, essential to success.
  • 6 Steps for transmuting Desire into its financial equivalent
    • Fill your mind with the exact amount of money you desire
    • Determine exactly what you plan to give up in return for the money- no such thing as something for nothing
    • establish a definite date you intend to possess the money you desire
    • Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, put this plan into action immediately
    • Write a clear concise statement summarizing everything above
    • Read your statement out loud, twice daily. As you read, see and feel, and believe yourself already in possession of the money.
      •  wake up and go to bed with this desire on your mind. live your desire.
  • All those who have acquired great fortunes did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, desiring, and planning before acquiring it.
  • “Success requires no apologies, failure permits no alibis”
  • You need to be ready to receive this ‘gift’: of infinite intelligence, of useful ideas, of imagination.
    • there is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. – you MUST BELIEVE with every fiber in your body that you CAN acquire it. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.
    • You must have FAITH, which is Principle 2
    • It must be a burning DESIRE for something DEFINITE (DEFINE-IT)

Principle 2: FAITH

  • Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.
  • Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith
  • Do not rely on alibis for failure: “misfortune” or “bad luck”
  • You need to believe it, deceive yourself, use strong visualizations
  • It is a state of mind which can be induced by auto-suggestion (principle 3)
    • create a mantra
    • write it down
    • say it to yourself every morning and every night
      • repeat it until the vibrations of sound have reached your subconscious mind
  • Self confidence formula: 5 steps
    • Demand of yourself persistent and continuous action. promise to render such action.
    • Realize the dominating thoughts of your mind will reproduce outward. Therefore focus on what you intend to become
    • Devote 10 minutes per day to demanding of myself the development of self-confidence
    • I have clearly written my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, i will never stop trying until i have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment
    • I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism by developing love for all humanity, because i know that a negative attitude towards others can never bring me success. i will believe in others, and in myself.
      • Read this formula every day, commit yourself to it.
  •  at the time of the book held more power than any man living. and he did it without any of the orthodox tools of power: money, soldiers, materials, warfare. How did he create it? Answer: out of the understanding of the principle of faith, and his ability to transplant that faith into the minds of two hundred million people.
  • How to create a company:
    • Start with an idea, created through imagination
    • mix faith with the idea
    • formulate a plan
    • put the plan into action
    • apply and follow through on the plan with persistence
    • back it with firm decision until it has been fully carried out
    • Prepared the way for success by a Burning desire for success.
  • Riches begin in the form of thought, and Faith removes the limitations!

Principle 3: Auto Suggestion

  • The subconscious resembles a fertile garden spot, in which weeds will grow in abundance, if the seeds of more desirable crops are not sown therein
  • You do not need to wait for a definite plan to start going through the six steps for transmuting desire. Do the visualization and the plan will appear.
  • Auto suggestion only works if you see yourself in possession of the money, feel it, smell it, imagine what it is like. Faith is the strongest and most productive of emotions

Principle 4: Specialized Knowledge

  • There are two types of knowledge: General and Specialized. General knowledge is the most abundant, but less useful in the accumulation of money. Knowledge will not attract money unless it is organized, and intelligently directed to the definite end of accumulating money. That is the missing link in education systems: how to organize and use the knowledge after you acquire it.
  • Specialized knowledge is what you need in the service, merchandise or profession you intend to offer in return for money. This is where the Master Mind group comes in- principle 9. Specialized knowledge is very plentiful, and cheap too. Just look at the payrolls of the any university: a lot of specialized knowledge for not a lot of money. It pays to know how to purchase this kind of knowledge.
    • You need to decide what kind of specialized knowledge you require. Then where to get it. The dependable sources of knowledge are
      • one’s own experience and education
      • experience and education available through cooperation of others
      • colleges and universities
      • public libraries
      • special training courses
  • The key to specialized knowledge is that it is not the knowledge itself that is valuable. These days it is only a click away. It is that you need to focus on the knowledge that will make your definite desire come true and help you achieve success.
    • The problem with starting at the bottom and working your way up is that you often are so bogged down at the bottom you never have the opportunity to lift your head enough to be seen by opportunity. This is called getting in a rut. It pays to start one or two steps above the bottom and you want to get into the habit of seeing opportunity and embracing it without hesitation.
  • “there is no fixed price for sound ideas!” which leads to principle #5: Imagination. Specialized knowledge may be found just around the corner- any corner. Remember, the Idea is the main thing.

Principle 5: Imagination

  • Man’s only limitation, within reason, is his development and use of his imagination.
  • Two forms of imagination:
    • Synthetic imagination- one may arrange old concepts, ideas, or plans into new combinations. It is used most by the inventor, with the exception of he who draws upon the creative imagination, when he cannot solve his problem through synthetic imagination
    • Creative imagination- the finite mind of man has direct communication with what Hill calls “Infinite Intelligence”. Which is communicated through ‘hunches’ and ‘inspirations’. It is by this faculty that all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.
      • This faculty only functions when the conscious mind is vibrating at an exceedingly rapid rate, as for example, when the conscious mind is stimulated through the emotion of strong desire.
      • It becomes more alert and receptive in proportion to its development through USE (i.e. 10 ideas per day)
    • Both Synthetic and creative imagination are strengthened through use
    • To start, develop and exercise the synthetic imagination as it will be used more often in converting desire to money.
      • you need to give definite concrete form to the intangible desire
    • “Ideas can be transmuted into cash through the power of definite purpose, plus definite plans”
      • “hard work and honesty alone will not bring riches. Riches that come in huge quantities are never the result of HARD work. Riches come in response to the definite demands, based on the application of definite principles, and not by chance or luck…. an idea is an impulse of thought that impels action, by an appeal to the imagination”
      • There is a ton of opportunity on the internet for those who can produce or recognize ideas. The story of nearly every great fortune is when a creator of ideas and a seller of ideas got together and worked in harmony.
      • “SUCCESS REQUIRES NO EXPLANATIONS, FAILURE PERMITS NO ALIBIS”

Principle 6: Organized Planning

  • How to build plans which will be practical:
    • ally yourself with as many people as you may need for the creation, carrying out of your plan or plans for accumulation of money- you cannot do it alone
    • Before forming your ‘master mind’ group, decide what advantages and benefits you may offer the individual members of your group in return for their cooperation
    • Arrange to meet with the group at least 2X per week
    • Maintain perfect harmony between yourself and every member of the group. If you cannot, expect failure
  • “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits”
  • When you hit failure, adjust your plan and set sail once more toward your goal.
  • The master mind should only be composed of people who do not take defeat seriously
  • Grade yourself on the attributes of a strong leader: list in book
  • 10 leadership faults:
    • inability to organize details- you must be the master of all details connected with your position
    • Unwillingness to render humble service
    • Expectation of pay for what they “know” vs. what they do with that knowledge
    • Fear of competition from followers- eternal truth is that men receive more pay for their ability to get others to perform than they could possibly earn by their own efforts
    • lack of imagination
    • selfishness- the great leader claims none of the honors
    • disloyalty
    • emphasis on the ‘authority’ of leadership
    • emphasis of title
  • Do not engage in the pastime of trying to get without GIVING
  • QQS Rating: Quality,  plus quantity, plus the proper shirt of cooperation equals perfect salesmanship of service. – apply it as a habit
    • Quality- service should be done efficiently, and you should aspire to continuous improvement
    • quantity – habit of rendering all the service of which you are capable of, at all times
    • Spirit- habit of agreeable, harmonious conduct, that will induce cooperation from associates and employees
      • Nothing can be substituted for spirit and pleasing conduct.
    • List of 30 major causes of failure and how many of them are holding you back- wrote on bottom of page in book to note the page.
    • There is a list of 28 questions you should answer as a personal inventory
    • Hill considers Capital one of the greatest benefactors of all time. “capital consists not alone of money, but particularly of highly organized groups of men who plan ways and means of using money efficiently for the good of the public, and profitability to themselves
      • Capitalists are the ‘brains of civilization’ because they supply the entire fabric of which all education, enlightenment, and human progress consists
    • We live in a country that boasts freedom- as great as it is, and as far as it reaches and privileges it provides, it does not, and cannot bring riches without effort. Capitalistic America insures every person the opportunity to render useful service, and to collect riche in proportion to the value of the service. The system denies no one the right , but it does not and cannot promise something for nothing… it is governed by the law of economics, which neither recognizes nor tolerates for long getting without giving

Principle 7: Decision

  • Extremely high correlations are between lack of decision and failure. On the contrast there is a high correlation of people who have accumulated fortunes that they have the habit of reaching decisions promptly, and of changing these decisions slowly.
    • People who fail to accumulate wealth, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.
  • Pick a decision quickly and stick with it: Decisiveness and persistence (principles 7 and 8)
  • People who fail to accumulate money sufficient for their needs are often easily influenced by the opinions of others.
    • If you are influenced by ‘opinions’ when you reach decisions, you will not succeed in any undertaking, much less in that of transmuting your own desire into money.  if you are influenced by the opinion of others, you will have no DESIRE of your own
    • You have a brain of your own, – use it and reach your own decisions.
  • Keep your eyes and ears wide open and your mouth closed, if you wish to acquire the habit of prompt decision.
  • “tell the world what you intend to do, but first show it” 
  • History has shown us that the leaders in every walk of life decide quickly, and firmly. that is the major reason why they are leaders. The world has the habit of making room for the man whose actions and word show that he knows where he is going.
  • People are stuck in the spot they are today because they lacked the definiteness of decision to plan a definite position and the knowledge of how to choose an employer.

Principle 8: Persistence

  • Willpower and desire – when combined properly make an irresistible pair.
  • If you are following this book with the intention of applying the knowledge in it, your first test of persistence will be in the six steps described in the second chapter.
  • If you find yourself lacking in persistence, you can remedy this weakness by building a stronger fire under your desires.
  • With persistence will come success, and there is no substitute for persistence. Remember when you fail, that ‘every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent advantage.’ Do not see failure as anything other than temporary
  • Persistence is a state of mind, and it can be cultivated. The definite causes for persistence are:
    • Definiteness of purpose
    • Desire
    • Self Reliance
    • Definiteness of plans – even if they are weak, or even impractical
    • Accurate knowledge – knowing that one’s plans are sound encourages persistence. ‘guessing’ instead of ‘knowing’ destroys persistence
    • Co-Operation
    • Will-Power – the habit of concentrating one’s thoughts upon the building of plans for the attainment of a definite purpose, leads to persistence
    • Habit- Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experience upon which it feeds.
  • The book goes into the 16 symptoms of lack of persistence and asks you to grade yourself on each.
  • Fear of criticism – “too many people refuse to set high goals for themselves, or even neglect selecting a career, because they fear the criticism of relatives and ‘friends’ who may say ‘don’t aim so high, people will think you are crazy'” Moral of the story here is that you are probably not thinking big enough.
  • the harder you work, the luckier you get… make your own luck
  • 4 Steps to Develop persistence
    • You need to start with a definiteness of purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment
    • A definite plan, expressed in continuous action
    • A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances
    • A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose
  • “blessed is the man who has come to know that our muted thoughts are our sweetest thoughts”

Principle 9: Power the Master Mind

  • Power is essential for success in the accumulation of money. You can define ‘power’ as “organized and intelligently directed knowledge
  • Power is required for the accumulation of money, and power is necessary for the retention of money after it has been accumulated.
  • So, if power is organized and intelligently directed knowledge, what are the sources of knowledge?
    • Infinite intelligence- source of knowledge that comes in at a subconscious level, with the aid of creative imagination
    • Accumulated experience – the accumulated knowledge of man- may be found at a public library (or internet)
    • Experiment and research – this is the source man must go to when knowledge is not available through accumulated experience. Creative imagination is also often used in this area.
  • What is the ‘master mind’ : “the coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony between two or more people for the attainment of a definite purpose.
    • Great power can be accumulated through no other principle.
    • you need someone or other people to challenge you, you need people to keep you well-informed. this is the purpose of the master mind
  • How did Gandhi attain his power?
    • He came to power through inducing over two hundred million people to coordinate, with mind and body in a spirit of harmony for a definite purpose! 

Principle 10: Transmutation

  • Transmuting is ‘the changing or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.
  • Hill notes that the energy that we are trying to transmute here is ‘the emotion of sex’ . Which, Hill argues is the most powerful of human desires. Researching men and women of great achievement over the last two thousand years, showed that they had highly developed sex natures.
    • The emotion of sex is an ‘irresistible force’ against which there can be no such position as an ‘immovable body.
    • Sex transmutation will lift one to the status of genius. ‘the emotion of sex contains the secret of creative ability’
  • The Ten Mind stimuli
    • The desire for sexual expression
    • Love
    • Burning desire for fame, power, financial gain, money
    • music
    • friendship between either those of the same sex, or the opposite sex
    • A Master Mind alliance based on the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement
    • Mutual suffering, such as experienced by people who are persecuted
    • Auto-suggestion
    • Fear
    • Narcotics and alcohol
  • Genius is developed through the ‘sixth sense’. The ‘sixth sense’ is what we call creative imagination. A thing that most people either never use, or only use by accident. Only a small number of people use it ‘with deliberation and purpose forethought. When developed, ideas or concepts will flash into ones mind through one or more of the following sources:
    • Infinite intelligence
    • Subconscious mind
    • from the mind of another person who has just released the thought, or a picture of the idea or concept…
    • From the other person’s subconscious storehouse
  • How to create genius???
    • Through the 10 mind stimulants
    • exercise your creative faculty (10 ideas per day)
    • You want to acquire the habit of relying upon the ‘still small voice
    • best ideas come from so-called ‘hunches’
  • Dr. Elmer Gates was a great inventor. his process would be to sit at a table, shut off the lights, and concentrate upon the known factors of the invention on which he was working, remaining in that position until ideas began to ‘flash into his mind in connection with the unknown factors of the invention.
  • Ideas that are received through creative faculty are more reliable, they come from a more reliable source than accumulated experience (which has biases)
  • Gates did two things:
    • Stimulates his mind so that it vibrates on a higher-than-average plane
    • He concentrates upon the known factors (the finished part, or desired outcome), and creates in his mind a perfect picture of the unknown factors (unfinished part)
  • Why men seldom succeed before forty… James Altucher also touched on this during “Choose Yourself”
    • The major reason that has been found is that their tendency to dissipate their sexual energies through a physical expression of the emotion of sex. They do not learn that the urge has other possibilities than mere physical expression.
    • Between the ages of 30 and 40, men begin to learn (if they ever do) the art of sex transmutation.
  • The road to genius consists of the development, control, and use of sex, love, and romance. There is no other road to genius than through voluntary self effort. 

Principle 11: The Subconscious Mind

  • The subconscious mind is the connecting like-minded. Once you accept its existence,  and understand its possibilities as a medium for transmuting your desires into their physical or monetary equivalent, you will understand the instructions given in the chapter on desire. You need to make your desires CLEAR, and reduce them into writing. You will also need persistence in carrying out the instructions given.
  • There are seven major positive emotions: they can only be mastered through use:
    • The emotion of Desire
    • The emotion of Faith
    • The emotion of Love
    • The emotion of Sex
    • The emotion of Enthusiasm
    • The emotion of Romance
    • The emotion of Hope
  • Seven major negative emotions TO BE AVOIDED!
    • Fear
    • Jealousy
    • Hatred
    • Revenge
    • Greed
    • Superstition
    • Anger
  • The Law of habit- apply and use positive emotions as a habit.
    • kill social media
    • kill biased news feeds- balance between well-informed and consumed by world problems you have little to no impact on.
  • Faith and fear make poor bedfellows. Where one is found the other cannot exist!

Principle 12: The Brain

  • The Brain is a broadcasting and receiving station for thought.
    • “The subconscious mind is the standing station of the brain, through which vibrations of thought are broadcast. The Creative imagination is the ‘receiving set’ through which the vibrations of thought are picked up from the ether.” In the book I drew a bit of a crude diagram of what is going on here:tgr

Principle 13: The Sixth Sense

  • The sixth sense is the ‘creative imagination’ or the receiving set referenced in the previous chapter through which ideas, plans and thoughts ‘flash’ into the mind.
  • This is the part that you need to accept, without being skeptical of the stupendous claims in this book. You must master the other principles before you can determine if the claims of principle 13 are fact or fiction.
  • Hill talks about how he held ‘imaginary council meetings’ where he would have people that he believed were most impressive: Emerson, Edison, Darwin, Lincoln, Carnegie, etc. that he would role play out in his mind.
    • He had a definite purpose – to rebuild his own character so it would represent a composite of the characters of his imaginary counselors.
    • He found that this imaginary counsel took on a life of its own, in his mind, and he talks about some of the breakthroughs he had during those ‘invisible counsel’ meetings.
  • The sixth sense
    • is not something you can take off and put on at will- it comes slowly through other principles outlined in the book
    • Seldom does one come into the workable knowledge of the sixth sense before the age of 40
    • The spiritual forces with which the sixth sense is so closely related, do not mature and become usable except through years of meditation, self-examination, and serious thought. 
  • The start of all achievement is desire, the finishing point is that brand of knowledge which leads to understanding: understanding of self, others, the laws of nature, and recognition and understanding of happiness.

How to outwit the six ghosts of fear

  • Before you can put this philosophy to use, you must be prepared to receive it. That begins with study, analysis and understanding of the three enemies you need to clear out
    • Indecision – is the seedling of fear. Indecision crystallizes into doubt and the two blend together to become fear
    • Doubt
    • Fear
  • The Six basic fears
    • Poverty
      • If you want riches you must refuse to accept any circumstance that leads to poverty.  (riches is meant in its broadest sense of financial, spiritual, mental, and material states)
      • Symptoms of fear of poverty:
        • indifference
        • indecision
        • doubt
        • worry
        • over-caution
        • procrastination
    • Criticism
      • The fear of criticism robs a man of his initiative, destroys his power of imagination, limits his individuality, takes away his self-reliance, and does him damage in a hundred other ways. 
      • Symptoms of fear of criticism
        • Self consciousness
        • lack of poise
        • personality
        • Inferiority complex
        • Extravagance
        • Lack of initiative
        • Lack of ambition
    • ill-health
      • Symptoms of fear of ill-health
        • Auto-suggestion (negative)
        • Hypochondria
        • Exercise
        • Susceptibility
        • Self-Coddling
        • Intemperance
    • loss of love of someone
      • Symptoms
        • Jealousy
        • Fault finding
        • Gambling
    • old age
      • Part of this is the possibility of loss of freedom and independence, as old age may bring with it the loss of both physical and economic freedom
      • Another fear of old age is the possibility of poverty
      • Symptoms
        • Falsely believing one’s self to be slipping because of old age
        • The habit of killing off initiative, imagination, and self-reliance by falsely believing one’s self too old to exercise these qualities.
        • fear of criticism for dressing or behaving younger than you appear
    • Death
      • This fear is useless. Death will come- accept it as a necessity and pass the thought through your mind.
      • Symptoms
        • The thought and thinking of dying vs. making the most of life.
          • The remedy is the burning desire for achievement
        • Old man worry- a form of sustained fear caused by indecision therefore it is a state that can be controlled.
  • Fears are nothing more than states of mind. And thought is the only thing man has absolute control over.
  • A state of mind is something that one assumes. It cannot be purchased, it must be created.
  • “Kill the habit of worry, in all of its forms by reaching a blanket decision that nothing which life has to offer is worth the price of worry. With this decision will come poise, peace of mind, and calmness of thought which will bring happiness.”
  • The 7th basic evil: The susceptibility to negative influences
    • To protect yourself, recognize that you have will-power and put it into constant use until it builds a wall of immunity against the negative influences of your mind.
    • Keep your mind closed against all people who depress or discourage you in any way
    • Deliberately seek company of people who influence you to think and act for yourself ~~~Who is the group of 5 people who I want to be the average of??? TF question.
  • Self analysis test questions at the end of the chapter. Answer them honestly and thoughtfully.
  • Remember, you have absolute control over one thing, and that is your thoughts.

Two more things…

  • “Life is a checkerboard, and the player opposite you is TIME. If you hesitate before moving, or neglect to move promptly, your men will be wiped off the board by TIME. You are playing against a partner who will not tolerate indecision.”
  • “The Master Key is intangible, but powerful! it is the privilege of creating, in your own mind, a BURNING DESIRE for a definite form of riches. There is no penalty for the use of the Key, but there is a price you must pay if you do not use it. The price is FAILURE (or, I will add MEDIOCRITY). There is a reward of stupendous proportions if you put the Key to use. It is the satisfaction that comes to all who conquer self and force Life to pay whatever is asked.”

That is pretty much the summary of Think and Grow Rich. 5,000+ words and I do not think I did it justice. I strongly suggest reading this book from a mindset focus. He focuses a lot on money, wealth, material things, power. But this will work with anything you deem your burning desire. The key here is to focus on the 13 principles and you find what you are looking for.
