Quotes and Notes from Hugh’s book list.
 
Today’s notes are on the 2 Napoleon Hill books on my list:
  1. Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill https://amzn.to/2IenAVY
  2. Napoleon Hill On the Air: The Five Foundations for Success, Napoleon Hill transcriptions https://amzn.to/2Z7YZsS
 
Think and Grow Rich is a classic self-help book which is the basis of much of the teaching coming from self-help gurus in the last century, with Jim Rohn and Bob Proctor being two of the most visible and popular presenters on the wisdom of Hill. It in one of the top selling self-help books of all time. Many other books have been and are continuing to be published thanks to Don Green and the Napoleon Hill Foundation in Wise, Virginia.
 
Hill directs his readers to read chapter 4 every night aloud and to underline passages that impress us to remember and activate his premises for success.
 
Napoleon Hill On the Air is a set of radio interviews by Hill transcribed and also available on Audible. It’s great to hear Hill’s wisdom in his own voice. Hill expands and highlights the themes taught in Think and Grow Rich as well as his Laws of Success and other writings. 
 
The combination of these 2 books gives insight into what Hill learned in his interviews of 500 successful business leaders of his time who were introduced to him by Andrew Carnegie. 
 
Selected quotes from Hill:
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
 
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.
 
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
 
Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.
 
First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
 
First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
 
What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
 
Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.
Every adversity brings with it the seed of an equivalent advantage.

Keep the momentum.
