Napoleon Hill’s 6 Steps to Success

Napoleon HillI was just re-reading Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think And Grow Rich’ and came across a very simple formula for financial success – which, of course, could also be applied to anything you want in life.

Hill states:

“Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money, wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches.”

Hill’s 6 Steps are as follows

  1. Focus on the exact amount of money you want – It is not enough to say “I want plenty of money.”, you need to be specific.
  2. Decide what you are going to give in return. There is no such thing as “something for nothing.”
  3. Set an exact date to achieve this goal.
  4. a. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire; b. Begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
  5. Write the above steps down as a statement.
  6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily: once before bed time, and once after you get up in the morning.

Could this be any more clearer than that?
