Find Opportunities Using the Power of People Who Think Like You Do
Hill’s work is mostly about laying down personal targets and goals and about foreseeing success while being rooted in the present. Hill also believed that the positive attitude emanating from a group of positive-thinking individuals would be much greater than the sum of their individual positive attitudes. Hill had reached this conclusion after analyzing all the interviews he had conducted with American millionaires, most of whom were industrial tycoons – every millionaire that Hill interviewed stated that they tasted success only after they saw opportunities and found like-minded people who worked with them and helped them realize their goals. So, the millionaires did not become millionaires merely because they worked hard – they became millionaires only when they hooked up with people who thought on similar lines as they did. Associating with such people gave these millionaires the courage and inspiration to head boldly towards their goals.
Find your opportunities and find people who think like you do. It is the core foundation of the philosophy of master mind groups.
“Think And Grow Rich” teaches you lessons that successful businessmen had learnt from life. It teaches you how to overcome adversity, the importance of planning, the belief and power of oneself, and the importance of not quitting even though the chips are down. Clever axioms such as “Failing to plan is planning to fail”, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve” and “A quitter never wins, and a winner never quits” play on the readers mind and egg him on to at least start believing in himself.
