If you're a big fan of self improvement or entrepreneurship, you've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book Think and Grow Rich which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide (but if you haven't, now's your chance to get a FREE copy of his book!).
The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals. Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.
To quote the author: "Throughout this philosophy will be found the suggestion that thought, backed by strong desire, has a tendency to transmute itself into its physical equivalent." --Napoleon Hill
Napoleon Hill did not directly state what the Hidden Secret was in his book but did leave several clues in the introduction of his book in order to help the reader discover what it was. (I left a clue as well when I used the word "Desire" in the title of this article - and no, the Hidden Secret is not just to really desire the achievement of your goal and it's not the law of attraction either. There's a lot more to it than that as you'll soon see. )
The Clues To The Hidden Secret
Let me give you another clue that might help you discover what the Hidden Secret is. You can see that Napoleon Hill stresses the word "ready" many times in his list of clues. The question then naturally arises. When is someone ready for a thing? Let Napoleon Hill speak for himself. "No one is ready for a thing until he ______" --Napoleon Hill.
Try to find that quote in Think and Grow Rich and when you do, you're halfway there to discovering the entire Hidden Secret. When you're ready for the Hidden Secret and you recognize it in Napoleon Hill's book, you want to know what the greatest thing about it is? You realize that you've just found the natural process of goal achievement.
What do I mean by that? Let's think about this for a second. When most people first start off on their journey of self improvement in order to achieve their goals, they pump themselves up with books, tapes, or speakers. All those resources are there to tell them "You can do it!" and it's true, you CAN do it. That's the thesis if you will, of all self improvement books, tapes, and seminars.
Then they start going on a huge information binge. They want to learn all the techniques and principles of success: visualization, time management, discipline, determination, persistence, etc. However, they run into a major problem and that is they read and read and read but never APPLY what they learn. Does that sound familiar to you?
You read a book or listen to a tape and get pumped up so you work on your goals for a day, but do nothing after that. You read another book and the same thing happens. You get frustrated because nothing is working so you think that the key to it all is going to found in the next book you read, or the next article, or the next seminar you attend. This leads to a vicious cycle that few people seem to escape from.
You seem to have some small measure of success as you try in vain to "force" yourself to apply what you learn and it works for a little while, but you inevitably slip back. You hopelessly rely on books and tapes to "pump" you up in order to take action on your goals.
The Missing Link To It All
The truth is, deep down inside you know what needs to be done in order to achieve your goals. You've read about the principles of success and know the techniques. You know that you need to be persistent, do hard work, take action, visualize, believe, etc., but it's as if you're missing the link to it all.
What's that missing link? People who achieve their goals do all of that naturally. They believe naturally, they take action naturally, they work hard naturally, they persist naturally, etc. They don't have to rely on books, tapes, or seminars to pump them up.
Remember, long before there were any self improvement books, tapes, or seminars, people were achieving great things without them because the process of natural success was inside them the entire time. That's exactly what The Hidden Secret is. The Hidden Secret that Napoleon Hill referred to in Think and Grow Rich is a process that naturally induces the principles of success in order to help you to achieve your goals. The key is to understand what that natural process is and how we can initiate it within ourselves.
The Hidden Secret In Think and Grow Rich
When I discovered it and began to write about it, I knew for a FACT that The Hidden Secret In Think and Grow Rich would be vastly different than any other self improvement book on the market today.
If you've read enough success type books, you'll realize that they all say similar things. They just list a bunch of "principles of success." They say things like:
Instead of falling for these superficial types of books that just take money out of your pocket, find out what connects all those principles of success you've read about, so that you naturally start to manifest them. So you naturally start taking action, so that you naturally think positive, so that you naturally become persistent, etc. That's the REAL value right there. Not just listing a bunch of principles of success that everybody has heard of.
The Hidden Secret In Think and Grow Rich will provide you with that revolutionary new paradigm shift that will change the way you look at the principles of success. This paradigm shift will introduce a new framework model that will show how the principles of success are all connected so that they can be derived naturally, not forcefully.
This book ties everything you've ever read on self improvement and goal attainment to give you that missing link between them all. In addition it will also explain exactly how to do so in great detail. It will pull all the components together and focus on the specifics of how to do it.
