I’d like to begin by giving Brian Kim the credit he deserves here. For he really opened my eyes on ‘The Hidden Secret’ within the book, ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
Although anyone can read this book and come up with their own view on what ‘The Hidden Secret’ might be to them. Brian Kim’s version is by far and best that i have ever read.
I will do a review on his version here…
First I would strongly recommend that you buy and read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ as i have done. I actually purchased two copies. I wasn’t happy with the first copy, so i purchased a second copy, titled ‘Think and Grow Rich! The original version, restored and revised.” I’m happy with this copy.
Second, I would like to inform you that I am closing in on the half-century mark and have owned and ran different successful businesses over the years and believe I bring a great deal of experience to the table.
I’m glad your hear, now let’s get down to business…
First thing you realize about this book is that it covers most/all principles that over 500 wealthiest people use to achieve their goals, unlike many other self-improvement/goal-achievement books that focus on maybe one or two principles.
This will be a condensed version of Kim’s work. If you want the full version, just click the ‘Contact’ tab above and I will forward you a copy of Kim’s ‘The Hidden Secret in Think and grow rich – PDF’
‘The Hidden Secret’ in Think and Grow Rich
- Have a RAGING desire to accomplish your one major definite purpose.
- Have faith that you will succeed.
- Organize a definite plan and take action.
- Never give up until you achieve your one major definite purpose.
The Secret Sauce: Consistency in all steps.
Now before you get all bent out of shape thinking … That’s it? That’s the secret?. No, there’s way more to it than that. Read on and you will see that there is much, much more to it.
Here is one Key instruction, that will make the above work like magic…
Each step must be followed in the correct order… complete #1, then complete #2…
and be done consistently.
Follow the instructions above and a natural flow or synergy will result. You will naturally want to work hard, have a positive mental attitude, seek and find the data you need, be creative, be persistent.
Have you narrowed it down to One Major Goal? Have you made it Definite? Is your Desire strong enough? Do you have Faith you will succeed? Do you lack Desire? If so, you will run out of steam. How can you be consistent with all your steps?
There are in fact 2 different “Secrets”. Secret #1 is in The Laws of Success in 16 Lessons and that same Secret is also in the book, Ask and It Is Forgiven. The other Secret, that Napoleon Hill refers to is in Think and Grow Rich. Secret 2: Is a natural process: Step 1: Desire of accomplishment of one major purpose(well at least one major purpose at a time–because some people can have more than one major purpose i.e Arnold Schwarzenegger. Step2: Faith that you will succeed, Step 3: Organize a written plan (w/deadline or i.e timelines: daily/weekly/monthly/etc.. especially if it feels good to do so), read it twice daily (once upon arising and once before going to bed), see, feel, taste, touch, smell and believe you have accomplished your major aim or purpose and take action (inspired is the best action). 4: Never give up until you achieve your major, definite purpose. The Secret Ingredient: Consistency in all steps. Remember the power of Decision and The Mastermind.
