"Think and Grow Rich" - Napolean Hill...
"Think and Grow Rich," by Napolean Hill is the foundational book to read for financial success.
How do you create a GREAT life?
One fulfilling your definition of success and financial independence or financial freedom?
Seeking out GREAT people and learning what makes them tick is a trait of successful people. They research, are constantly learning, open to listening to people who have succeeded in the area they want to master, and focus on what they want.
They also ask high quality questions... and get high quality answers.
Some of these questions asked of successful people include: What habits do they create to set themselves up to win? What do they read? Who do they shadow for greatness also? What thoughts do they regularly focus on?
There are many ways to find a mentor. Seminars, Coaches, Mentor Groups and Individuals, Audio, Web and Books.
...BOOKS are a MUST for expanding the mind. Reading high quality content on success, finance, mind-set, over-coming challenges, biographies and auto-biographies of great people fills the mind with possibilities and stretches the boundaries of your own self-limitations. These sort of books exercise the mind, like running or weights would strengthen the body.
What sort of books are you reading? What is the quality of the content you choose to put into your mind each day? How much t.v. do you watch? Is it really serving you? Could you use that time instead to read or listen to an audio program that will serve you at a higher level?
My last blog (Creating a Sea of Abundance) generated quite a few personal responses directed to me, "Where's the money!?" "I don't have any!" and many more inquiries. I thought the best way to respond is to share the magical gift of a particular book that was a Turning Point for me in my financial life some 15 years ago.
If you have not read "Think and Grow Rich" yet, now is a great time!
What we create in our inner world (through beliefs and visualization) is what we manifest in our outer world, what we call our 'reality'. "Think and Grow Rich" is possibly one of the most powerful books I have read and re-read many times over the years. It has ALL the answers, and each time you read it (and grow) you 'see' new answers each time.
There are many versions available from Amazon at a great price. You can purchase it in it's old English form or in it's up-to-date version for today's language patterns. ...Click here... for the direct link.. It is a MUST on the Winner's reading list.
