The Wealth Generating Art of Thinking (Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich") (book review)
On this Hub, we will have a book review about a classical self-help book that has changed countless lives, especially, on its entrepreneurial sense.
This invaluable book is called, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
Our society is accustomed to embrace mediocrity. People believe that having a decent job is a safe and secure way to live your life.
But Napoleon Hill, the author of the book believes that we have the capacity to create wealth. And it is through the process of thinking. Yes, thinking. You’ve read it right.
However, if you are used to receive a bi-monthly paycheck just by showing up on your 9-5 job daily. Chances are, you’ll get skeptical. You might be saying, “Thinking can make you rich? Oh come on, dream on bro!”
Yes, thinking can generate great wealth, but the art of thinking is easier said than done.
If you like to kickstart a business, you need to come up on creating a tangible and visible value that you need to distribute to your target market, a unique product that people will find valuable and useful.
You can outsource freelancers to provide you a particular service you need to complete your project. Perhaps, a unique chair you want to market, or an Ebook you want to sell.
You can hire a carpenter that can make your sketched design come into reality. Or have a deal with a ghostwriter for you to produce your e-book you want to distribute.
Yes, you can hire these people. Outsource freelancers that can gladly be paid to complete your project. But the only thing you can never outsource are your thoughts. The art of thinking is a very important tool for us to generate wealth. The ideas, the plans and the strategy your mind is capable of generating to run a successful business.
Imagine how Steve Jobs became a business tycoon as well as a billionaire. What is the difference between Steve Jobs and the people he hired to create the iPhone?
The differences are his thoughts, his plans and strategies to run Apple. As he came up with a breakthrough product and introduced the iPhone to the world, he focused on “what to create”, rather than “how to create”.
The people he hired to create the iPhone could have profited ten times than what they have been paid for, if only they had the ideas Jobs has generated by his thoughts.
But you might ask, “If thinking can make you rich, why are there so many unsuccessful daydreamers?”
Yes, nobody can ever be prosperous just by reading books and thinking all day. Unless you have figured out how many doors of wealth generating opportunities you can open by your thoughts and ideas. You’ll eventually realize how essential the process of thinking is.
Sadly, the art of thinking are undervalued. People will prefer a “safe and secure” 9-5 job. "Just show up daily to your nose grinding boss and you’ll never starve".
You can embrace mediocrity and be "safe and secure" till your last breath.
However, if you want to take the risk and hopefully achieve greatness, one great advice I would like to tell you:
"Think and Grow Rich!"
