Have you ever wondered what the top 10 most read books in the world are? Well lucky for you (and me!) someone else did the research and even created this wonderful graphic to go along with it. Do any of the results surprise you?
We were not surprised to see Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich on the list. It’s a book everyone in the office has read and one that we ask our clients to read. We even gave it away as a prize on our summer cruise! What we love about the book is the practical advice and solutions that Hill clearly laid out. We have seen the power this book has had in our own lives and we hope you will too!
Hill created the “Law of Success” philosophy that forms the basis of his books. Think and Grow Rich is a 1937 motivational personal development and self-help book inspired by Hill’s work and conversations with Andrew Carnegie. Since its first publication over 70 years ago, the book has helped people succeed…and not just those looking to succeed financially. Though the book deals with how to get rich, Hill explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help people succeed in all lines of work.
As Napoleon Hill says (and Sandy Bonney loves to quote):
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve!
If you are interested in actually listening to Napoleon Hill, there are a lot of YouTube videos, like this one:
Hill’s “Law of Success” (which has recently been called “Law of Attraction”) is really about convincing yourself to become wealthy. It outlines the steps you need to take to be successful and also the steps you need to avoid. It’s that easy.
