Napoleon Hill (1883 – 1970) was a famous American author and pioneer in the field of personal development. One of his most notable achievements was his iconic book Think and Grow Rich.
Where did the book come from?
It was published in the Great Depression (1937), Hill based ‘Think and grow rich’ on studying and working with business mogul Andrew Carnegie and his mastermind group.
Carnegie was born in Dunfermline, Scotland and was famous for being the richest person in the world. He owned the Carnegie steel industry.
This book is now available in the public domain and can be downloaded for free. There are many benefits to reading think and grow rich.
But it’s not a get-rich-quick book. And there are no money making schemes or ways to make your first million/billion.
The purpose of the book reveals the mindset of millionaires. Hill outlines the thirteen principles of success.
Change your limiting beliefs?
Another gem 💎 in the book is how to change a limiting belief. Many people grow up having limiting beliefs about themselves.
This is an idea that no longer serves you.
For example, there are people who believe they’re stupid because their schoolteacher told them that ten years ago.
As a result, they’ve never learned much since. They’ve avoided learning opportunities due to the underlying limiting belief.
Understanding limiting beliefs
Have you ever wondered why changing a belief is never easy? This is because your beliefs have an emotional connection.
In other words, you don’t want to let go of them. It’s almost as if they’re part of your personal property.
But what if one of those beliefs really doesn’t serve you? And causes conflict with your goals and your life as a whole?
Auto-suggestions or affirmations?
By practising positive affirmation’s correctly, you can change a belief. An affirmation is a direct command to the subconscious mind.
Your mind can be divided into conscious and subconscious parts. You think with your conscious mind all day long.
But the greater subconscious mind is the key to changing a limiting belief. Because it controls your behaviours and actions.

In Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, affirmation’s are referred to as Autosuggestions.
“AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.”Napolean Hill – Think and grow rich
