Fundamental Principles From Think and Grow Rich

  • Everything which is tangible began as a thought: Anything that you create in your mind and trust that it is possible, you can achieve.

  • Our minds receive ideas from the universe. The universe feeds us with ideas constantly.
  • If you have a burning desire for something, you can achieve it.
  • Failures don't mean that you have failed.
  • Have faith - an absolute certainty with no fear, that you will succeed.
  • Implementing your idea is the most important step of achieving your dreams.

Napoleon Hill - A Flawed Character

  • He did not publish "The Laws of Success" until he hit rock bottom in his mid-forties. Before this, he experienced very little success and seldom had a steady source of income.

  • He attempted many business ventures related to inspirational writing and publishing projects but to no avail.
