    I found your blog while searching for “Think and Grow Rich Success Stories”. You see, I’m in the process of trying to turn my rather haphazard life into a successful, driven and amazing one. Part of that process is reading and implementing the teachings of Napoleon Hill that have helped so many become happy, successful people.

    I plan on beginning yet another blog, I have more than a few, about the process and documenting my trials and successes — similar to what you did here. I hope it works out as well for me as it apparently has for you.

    A bout of insomnia saw me reading through a few years worth of your posts, and after taking so much from you, I felt the need to comment and share something of my own.

    Here’s a song by Xavier Rudd one of your posts made me think of…

    Creating a Dream

    The chorus is one of my favorites.


    Patience, please.

    Patience, please.

    I’m creating a dream.

    Problem is that Napoleon Hill himself died completely broke. If his theories really worked he would have applied them on himself.

      That is false. Just because he did not apply the principles to his own life does not mean that they do not work.

      “Success” is in the eye of the beholder. Some define it monetarily, others spiritually, or through a strong family, good deeds, etc.

      I believe that Hill’s true calling in life was to develop a success manual and give hope to those that believed there was none during the Great Depression of the ’30’s. He undoubtedly succeeded in his endeavor proven by the fact that it is still one of the best selling motivational books nearly a century later.

      Follow his principles TO THE LETTER, and you will see…

      who knows what napoleon Hill wanted? Being Rich didn’t only mean being financially wealthy. It also includes other aspects of life. Napoleon hill wanted to develop a philosophy of success…and he made his goal.

      Think and Grow Rich has created more millionaires and billionaires than any other book. Want proofs?

      Andrew Tan, the forth richest man in Philippine was inspired by the book.

      Opran WInfrey has read the book thirteen times in his life.

      Larry Ellison converted $1200 into $42 billion after reading Think and Grow Rich.

      Frank Giustra, the Canadian billionaire, credits Think and Grow Rich for 95% of his wealth.

      Prem Watsa, Canadian billionaire known as ‘warren buffet of canada’, read Think and Grow Rich and that turned his life all around.

      David Murdock also credited Think and Grow Rich for his success.

      Note, these are only BILLIIONAIRES who credits the book for their financial success. If you start making a list of millionaires…the list would be endless.

      you may find complete story of how the book effected these billionaires on

    I have myself identified many people who acknowledge their success to Think and Grow Rich. I have posted their stories on my blog Surely, the book is fantastic. It is frustrating to see negative people reacting very negatively to the book

    Unfortunately, you did what most people do when they read THINK AND GROW RICH. They don't follow the instructions in chapter 2 on DESIRE.

    Writing out your goals, is not enough to make them happen.

    You must use the principle of autosuggestion to make yourself BELIEVE not only in the goal but in yourself. This fact is stated in more than three or four different chapters.

    Yet most people, don't follow the simple instructions.

    Based on what you wrote you and keep your goals TOP OF MIND.
