Welcome back! In today’s episode, I’m reading chapter one of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. The original 1937 version of this book is in the public domain, so I’m very happy that I can legally read this to you all. 😉
If you’re not familiar with this book, Think and Grow Rich is probably one of the most top-recommended books for self help and personal achievement.
It’s all about the thirteen principles that lead you towards riches and personal achievement.
These steps were documented by Napoleon Hill at the request of Andrew Carnegie who wanted these money-making secrets brought to the world. As a result, Hill analyzed over 500 of the highest performers at the time including Charles M. Schwab, Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller.
And, just to clarify, even though the end goal is building wealth, these steps can actually be used to achieve any type of ambition you may have.
In this first chapter, you’ll learn success mindset strategies including desire, persistence and how to put temporary defeat into context. (Given that we’re a bunch of super driven people here, I’m sure that failure is no stranger to anyone!)
I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so much for your support. In the next podcast, we discuss Chapter 1 and dive deeper into what Napoleon Hill calls “the art of converting defeat into stepping stones to opportunity.”
(Instead of publishing transcripts for episodes where I read Think and Grow Rich, I’ve linked the public domain version of the Think and Grow Rich PDF here. This is the version of the book that I’m reading on the podcast. 🙂 )
