My Read of the Month:
Title: Think and Grow Rich
Author: Napoleon Hill
Though published some 50 years ago, the concepts and principles presented in this book are timeless; a product of two decades of research conducted by Napoleon Hill. Mr. Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.
Some of them debunked conventional financial wisdom, and were thought-provoking such as ‘knowledge is not power, but only potential power’; ‘hard work and honesty alone will not bring riches’; ‘money does not make more money’; ‘money is “shy and timid” and need to be attracted’.
However, the most priceless truth I learned from this book which was surprisingly related to achieving riches was about sex! According to Napoleon, the driving force of sex when appropriately harnessed and transmuted “is capable of lifting men into a higher sphere of thought which enables them to master the sources of worry and petty annoyance which beset their pathway on the lower plane.”
And he further added that because of this misunderstanding and misuse of sex (this great force), majority of men had lowered themselves to the status of the lower animals. Don’t you just agree?
Believe it or not, this fascinating and in-depth book is built on biblical principles and truth. That is why I found this book explosive! It really expanded my horizon to receive more from this Infinite Intelligence (a term made in this book in reference to God). And it has to be read with an objective and opened mind.
And whether the principles work or not, give me some time to test them out okay? When I reach my financial goals, I will update here in my blog. Haha…
Who should read it: Everyone should especially for those who desire (and not merely wishing) to get rich- this could also be used in its general sense of financially, spiritually, mentally and materially.
