Think And Grow Rich

Join our newsletter to get your free copy of Think & Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill


Our best free e-Book download item is Think And Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill’s 1937 classic book. What is it about? It’s a bible, a literal handbook or manual on how to be successful and make a LOT of money!

Napoleon Hill was given the task of interviewing hundreds of highly successful business men, business owners and entrepreneurs. People like Andrew Carnegie of U.S. Steel, and Henry Ford of The Ford Motor Company. Napoleon Hill then extracted the principles of success. He looked for methods and practices – like a mindset, for example  – in common amongst these hundreds of millionaires and industrial tycoons.

My own summary of the book, Think and Grow Rich, is this: Decision, Desire, Faith, Purpose, Passion, Definite Goal and Definite Plan. If a person uses auto-suggestion, self talk or self-hypnosis frequently enough, they can power up the subconscious mind with vibrations of desire and faith, having a definite purpose. Then setting a clear, measurable goal, they will keep setting definite PLANS – and taking ACTION – until the goal is achieved.

The book Think And Grow Rich is a testament to the power of the human will. It is a blindingly strong reminder of the sheer guts and character that were needed to build the large American industrial companies of the Twentieth Century. Back in 1910 to pre World War II were the years of rapid industrial growth in steel making, the automobile industry, chemical and textile factories, banking and more. The scene was The United States of America. Napoleon Hill was very astute. He asked the hard questions. The personal questions, about how a man thinks. What he imagines, visualizes and dreams. Even how he talks to himself, suggesting ideas, concepts, principles and plans for action.

These ideas of Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie, amongst others, persist strongly into this day. The current breed of online marketers have studied these principles, too. With enormous success!  Mastermind Groups are a powerful method used even today. Brainstorming and mutual support groups, in a spirit of harmony and positivity, were employed by industrial giants like Henry Ford. No single man can achieve these things alone!

 Think And Grow Rich

Snippet From Chapter 12 – The Subconscious Mind:

“THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND consists of a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet.

It receives, and files, sense impressions or thoughts, regardless of their nature.”

Comment: So let’s control how we influence and re-program our subconscious minds. Feed the mind the good stuff. For goal achievement in the future.


Snippet From Chapter 10 – Power of the Mastermind:

“This accounts for the fact that some brains are more efficient than others, and leads to this significant statement–

a group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony, will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery.

When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes available to every individual brain in the group.”

Comment: So let’s define our purpose and hold many more brainstorming sessions or mastermind group sessions, in order to be much more successful in business and in life.

Note: your personal details are safe with me. Your privacy is secure.

Faith is a great component of self-confidence. The wonderful thing about Napoleon Hill is his open mind. In his 1937 book, Think And Grow Rich, Hill draws on all the current American psychological knowledge of the time. He adds an urging, a desire. A great sense of purpose. Cause and effect. Synthetic and creative imagination. Things that are still being studied and dissected by this current author, today.

Finally, here’s a very powerful quote for you to ponder, and apply!

Quote from Napoleon Hill:

“Business depressions do not destroy the market for imagination; they merely increase the need and extend the demand for imagination.  The world stands in need of men and women who will use their imaginations.”

You can use your imagination to create your own economy or achieve any reasonable (and in some cases, unreasonable) goal.  We use our imaginations to solve problems.

Being able to achieve any goal is simply figuring out a solution to a problem using your imaginative faculty.

The only limitations that really matter are the ones we set up within our own minds–our own imaginations.

Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose that you HOLD in your mind with persistence, faith, and the determination to turn it into a reality (which is one of the primary uses of affirmations), will EVENTUALLY become clothed in its physical equivalent.

Read My New e-Book



Affirming the power of positive affirmations from e-Books, Geoff takes a long drive through the cold, dark night in New Zealand and has to sleep alongside beautiful Lake Taupo…  What happens then?




I knew it was right, that what you focus on, is what you get. I believed in The Law Of Attraction and I’d been noticing the fact that everyone, for decades, had been repeating the time-honoured theme of ‘Think & Grow Rich,’ the original, 1937 classic by Napoleon Hill. The idea that you must hold a clear picture in your mind of precisely what you want, even imagining and feeling that you’ve already achieved it, was the way to create and manifest your desires.


I had learned many sets of affirmations. I repeated these to myself, hundreds and possibly thousands of times. Some were designed to elevate our self esteem:


I’m high value, highly skilled, special professional in higher harmony!”

I love you – I’m very grateful. Thank you – I believe in you!”

You’re more than good enough..”

You can do anything you set your mind to..”


Some affirmations were love-focused and quickened healing:


Relax. Open your heart and let love’s radiance illuminate the dark recesses of your heart and mind.”

Be madly, insanely, crazily in love!” ~Rumi

Your heart is the size of an Ocean. Go Find yourself in its infinite depths!” ~Rumi


I had studied Buddhist meditation and accelerated forms of this, including brain wave entrainment; also self-hypnosis. I had listened to audios and fully understood the basic processes and principles of hypnotherapy. I had taken part in religious practices of both the East and West, though was often inclined to translate these into psychological terms; everything seemingly pointed to The Unconscious Mind.


The time-honoured theme of Napoleon Hill in ‘Think & Grow Rich’ needed no shrink, no psychologist or paid professional to really make it work: Here is my painter’s summary in a nutshell:


Paint a precise, very clear picture in your mind of exactly what you want! Then keep looking at it … keep visualizing this consistently.”


And a business viewpoint that focuses on your training and self-improvement:


Your best investment, by far – is YOU. Connect here and now into further training. You are an under-valued stock with highly probable ‘upside potential.’


Then the story happened, and kept unfolding. In October, 2011 I had met my true soulmate, online. A wonderful, beautiful, intelligent, simpatico Filipino woman whose actions expressed and resulted in the grace and harmony by which she was named. Suggestions work. Now the story is a road trip. A foolish race against the dimming light of evening and the creeping, frosty cold of a New Zealand winter on the desolate western shores of Lake Taupo.





The Story


I had turned on to Highway 32 in the gathering dusk. The willing Peugeot swept me forward, up hills and around tight N.Z. corners, unaware of my growing tiredness. I had spent too much time in South Auckland, talking to shop owners, searching for a picture frame. I glanced at the speedo: 130kph. Are you crazy? You’re drifting into the holographic emptiness and you’re speeding? I smiled. There was a sense of deja vue. Driving tired was something I had experienced as a night-shift taxi driver, back in Western Australia.


There’s a quiet side road. Perfect. Turn off there. Take a few hours rest. Slip into the sleeping bag in the back seat. Ideas were arriving, on cue. Yes, missed it .. Carry on, find a similar spot … Oh, I must sleep now. I don’t want to drive off the road. Ooops, nearly hit that .. post.


A sign indicated a picnic spot in 400 metres. This is my last sane choice. I slowed, pulled off, stopped. Backed up to a less visible area. The Peugeot’s digital display told me that the outside temperature was just 3 degrees C. Down to 2 degrees in some spots. All was totally quiet and across the lake glimmered the lights of Turangi township and perhaps Motuoapa. It was 8pm now. A few hours sleep in the back seat and I could maybe drive on towards Highway 41 at Kuratau, turn right .. then left into Highway 4, down to Mount Ruapehu and National Park.


Occasionally, a car or truck whoooshed or hammered past like an unknown ghost in the night. Can they see me? Do they have good intentions? All was still. I knew I had a few bars of mobile connectivity. I used the Line app and explained my situation to my soulmate in Hong Kong. Grace was reassuring. This connected World has a safety net.


I went outside to relieve myself. Felt the bitter 3 degrees cold and listened. Nothing. Perfect, absolute stillness like a solace, a protective shield. Alone with Nature. I had clear thoughts. Remembering my bag of royal gala apples, I munched one, in the back seat, under the Kathmandu sleeping back. Locked the car, using the remote button on the key. Stretched out flat, no pillow, but my legs were too long for the little Peugeot 307’s back seat. I love the challenge of hardship. It’s strengthening. Now, what were my two intentions, my goals to ask of God? I would ask again. The Universal Mind would listen in the stillness. Why would it take so long for answers?


How can I get to live with my soulmate?”


GO there!” He thundered.


Well that was answered easily and quickly. Okay, here’s the more tricky part:


How do I make 2.4 million dollars each year?”


The cars had stopped long ago. Quietness … a long pause


Lights again glimmered at me from across the sacred Lake Taupo, as One dancing energy …


The Unconscious connected and spoke. It was crystal clear in the absolute stillness.


Loyalty pays. Collect three high quality books that are classics of the early Twentieth Century. Books of My Universal Harmony… Creation. Give them away to as many people as possible. Ask them to share these 3 mind-changing and LIFE-changing e-Books with ten of their friends, more or less…”


These exact words appeared to me, easily remembered and inscribed deeply in my heart and mind:

Continues …

Remembering my answer, I fell into a deep sleep for six hours. At 2am I awoke suddenly. ‘This is ridiculous. I’m so uncomfortable because I can’t stretch my legs out. I’m very cold in my running shoes. The sleeping bag isn’t covering them. I’m rested now. I can continue ..’


In the frosty air, the Peugeot sprang to life with no difficulty. Air flowed to the windscreen on ‘Auto.’ A setting of 24 degrees for the interior was soon obtained. Air flow irritated my eyes. The drive back was easy, only encountering 3 or 4 semi-trailers near National Park and Horopito. 8Km to Raetihi and I was safe. Tired, triumphant, keen to get started towards my second goal of 2.4 million dollars.


All the elements had been there as if they were waiting for an organizer. It had taken the cold, crisp air, the utter silence and isolation, a small test of survival, one apple and a moment of earnest meditation. I had dialed a connection to The Unconscious Creator, who had answered. The response was instantaneous. I felt a high level of Certainty about the method. Why? It followed all the Laws Of Nature that I was aware of … Virus-like growth, spreading naturally by human word-of-mouth. The giving of knowledge to uplift and help as many people as possible. Those with an open ear and a coachable mind. An expanding heart connected to the Love of The Universe. Music dancing softly in your soul …

Some AfterThoughts …

Relevant to The Future Painter e-Book Gift

P.S. Every problem you might experience, contains the seed of a hidden opportunity. The opportunity always dwarfs the problem, because it’s only a problem in your thinking. The thinking is arbitrary and could always be otherwise! It’s just a model of reality. Magical opportunities abound in every nook, cranny, exponentially multiplying … if you get flexible enough to think that way.


To attain my second goal of 2.4 million dollars, every year, I need to believe these three things:

  1. it’s possible,
  2. I deserve it,
  3. I can reverse engineer it, by calculating the number of sales, referrals, actions, etc., required to achieve it.





Your heart is the size of an Ocean ..
Go find yourself in its hidden depths.”
~Rumi, born 1207 AD.

Your new friend,




Remember I was looking for a picture frame? Would the story have happened the same way,

if I had quickly found a frame that fitted and I had arrived home during daylight hours?

The unique opportunity arose from the ‘problem.’
