Why not think rich

If you have never heard of the classic business book that is on everyones list as the top business book of all times, here is your introduction to it.  Think and Grow Rich was written by Napoleon Hill.  It is a great read and has a lot of great advice in it.  Even though this book is classified as a business book it is really a “thinking book”.  It gets you thinking about you and what you can control, which is your own thinking.

Here is a list of some os the great quotes from the book:

  • “Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success”
  • “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.”
  • “Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward.”
  • “The world has the habit of making room for the man whose actions show that he knows where he is going.”
  • “Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.”
  • “Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”
  • “Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
  • “Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle…”
  • “The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.”
  • “The starting point of all achievement is desire.”
  • “The ladder of success is never crowded at the top.”
  • “Education comes from within; you get it by struggle and effort and thought.”
  • “Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.”
  • “Fears are nothing more than a state of mind”
  • “Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach”
  • “If you do not see great riches in your imagination, you will never see them in your bank balance.”

How do these quotes inspire you to think differently today?  Please share with me your thoughts.
