In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote four steps for gaining the self-confidence necessary to become successful. Below is an excerpt from my book, Summary of Think and Grow Rich: The Wisdom of Napoleon Hill.
The Self-Confidence Formula
1. For 30 minutes a day, concentrate your thoughts on thinking of the person you want to become. Create in your mind a clear mental picture of that person.
2. For 10 minutes a day, demand of yourself the development of self-confidence.
3. Affirm aloud that you will never stop trying to achieve your definite chief aim in life until you gain the confidence for its attainment.
4. Affirm aloud that you will eliminate negative thoughts by developing a love for all humanity. A negative attitude toward others can never bring success. If you believe in yourself and others, others will believe in you.
Learn the Napoleon Hill's "money-making secret" in 20 minutes!
Napoleon Hill was best known for publishing Think and Grow Rich in 1937. In it, he outlines “The Thirteen Steps to Riches,” drawn from his interviews with more than 500 wealthy men. He was originally inspired to work on the book at the encouragement of business magnate Andrew Carnegie, who at the time was one of the richest people in the world. Carnegie taught Hill a “money-making secret” that he said nearly all successful people knew. The secret had been used by the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, and John D. Rockefeller to achieve their goals. Carnegie believed that the secret should be taught in public schools and could revolutionize education. Think and Grow Rich was Napoleon Hill’s attempt to disclose the secret to the general public.
