Think and Grow Rich – Introduction (Animated Summary)


Hey there! I want to welcome you to the 13 Steps to Riches
Series! This video is going to be the start of a brand
new in-depth playlist series in which we’ll get to dive into one of the biggest successful
books of all time in the personal development space that has made the biggest impact to
me personally and to millions of people around the world. And that very book that I’m talking about
is called Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Here’s some intriguing facts about it! Originally the book was published in 1937
and surprisingly, by the latest record in 2015, Think and Grow Rich has sold over 100
million copies worldwide. How this book was created is quite fascinating. It was created by a man named Napoleon Hill
who interviewed and studied the habits of more than 500 of the richest men and women
in the early 19th Century, many of them who started life in poverty, with little education
or influence. It took Hill over 20 years to compile all
the wisdom from these interviews into a book containing 13 main principles of how anyone
can change his or her way of thinking and become rich. Among these men were many famous historical
figures such as Henry Ford $200 billion dollars (adjusted for inflation), Theodore Roosevelt
$125 million, John D Rockefeller $318.3 billion, Thomas Edison $170 Millon, Wilbur Wright $10
million. And many more… Almost every successful entrepreneur in today’s
modern age such as Tony Robbins, Dan Lok, Brian Tracy, John Maxwell, has been impacted
from this book. And since this book contains so much powerful
principles, I’ve noticed there’s a common issue for many first time readers finding
themselves not completely understanding couple of the important chapters from the book. So that is why I’m creating this 13 steps
to riches series dissecting each principle aka each chapter into a fun simple format
to help you visually learn the important key lessons that Napoleon hill conveys. So… without further delay, let’s begin. Before we dive into the 1st Step to Riches
which will be in the next video, Hill demonstrates the power of your thoughts and how it has
the power to shape your life and in this chapter, it sets itself up as the foundation of the
book. One of the greatest strengths of this book
that I always appreciated was how Hill used real life stories with the lessons. Let’s take a look how the power of thought
comes into play… There’s a story about a man named Darby,
who became one of the most successful insurance salesman in the country. He used to share a powerful life experience
he had with the Gold Rush back when it was booming. He went there with his uncle and after weeks
of labor, they’ve suddenly struck gold in the midst of their mining. In the beginning, things looked great! It was so successful that they brought a drill,
but then something unexpected happened. There seemed to be no more gold left as they
mined further into the ground. They continued to drill on, desperately trying
to pick up any gold, but unfortunately, there was no sign of it. At the end, they finally decided there’s
no use of trying to mine anymore and so they quit. They sold the machinery to a junk man for
a few hundred dollars and took the train back home. But here’s where the story gets interesting. The junk man who bought the machinery called
in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. An astonishing discovery was made by the hired
engineer that the project had failed because the owners were not familiar with fault lines. And even more surprising was their calculations
showed that the gold would be found just three feet from where the Darby’s had stop drilling
and that is exactly where they found all the hidden surplus of gold. You can already guess what happened after
that. The junkman took millions of dollars of gold
in from the mine all because he knew well enough to seek expert counsel before giving
up. Let’s observe what happened from this story… Napoleon Hill points out that… Darby and his uncle thought there was no gold
left, so he thought there’s no use to continue on and gave up. On the other hand… The junkman thought about not giving up on
the abandoned project, went the extra miles, and at the end, reaped success. Hill demonstrates success comes to those who
are success conscious. One of the most common causes of failure is
the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. In fact, one of the main weakness of mankind
is the average person’s familiarity to the word impossible. To add to this lesson, the 21st Century Revised
Version of Think & Grow Rich provides a modern example about Steven Spielberg, one of the
all-time greatest Motion Pictures directors. There’s a funny story in the movie industry
how Steven broke to University Studios and eventually became a movie director. Before he was famous or anything, Steven took
a Universal Studios tour, which enables visitors to take a good look inside at the movie business. Steven somehow snuck off from the tour group
and hid between two stages until the tour ended. When he left at the end of the day, he said
few words to the gate guard. Afterwards, day after day he went back to
the studio for 3 months. He walked past the guards, waved at him and
he waved back. What’s funny is he always wore a suit and
carried a briefcase, letting the guards assume he was one of the students with a summer job
in the studio. He got to the point of becoming friends with
the directors, writers, and editors. He even got to become friends with the head
of the production of the Universal Studios television arm, and one day got to show the
director his college film project which impressed him so much that he placed Steven Spielberg
under the contract with the studio. Over the next few years, Steven Spielberg
directed several movies including the popular Indiana Jones series, Jaws, and later directed
Jurassic Park which became a hit at the time as the most successful movie in history. And we saw with Steven Spielberg, becoming
a movie director dominated his thoughts so much that we went beyond what others would
do, sneaking into guarded buildings to get the chance to become friends with a directors. Remember this lesson. In order to achieve something great, your
thoughts has a great effect on your actions and habits which ultimately has an effect
on your outcome. That is why it’s important to change our
minds from failure consciousness to success consciousness. So before we continue to the next chapters… Question for you. Assuming wealth is what you want to accomplish,
are you determined enough and willing to try harder to achieve it, no matter what and how
many times you’ll face adversities? Think about that… Hey everyone! If this so far peaked your interest and if
you wish to join along with us in reading this legendary book, perhaps you’re like
many of us who just don’t have that free time to read because you’re always traveling, driving,
or working, but…. let me tell you, I’m so thrilled to share
with you a perfect solution for your situation that will get you the book right now today
for free, thanks to Audible, the world’s largest audio library with over 425,000 audiobooks. Let me share with you why I’m so captivated
by Audible and so will you! Personally, I found using Audible as an efficient
alternative to reading for those times when my eyes are just occupied with different tasks. For example, I usually enjoy listening to
audiobooks the most when I am driving or when I’m at the gym working out which is great
because I can listen as I work out… Sometimes I’ll pause it when I’ll do a
set and then I’ll resume listening to the audiobook when I’m resting. So, let’s say you’re commuting to work or
wherever you’re headed, if you just add the habit of just listening to an audiobook, you’d
be surprised that you can usually finish a book less than a month without having to add
any extra effort or time to your life and that’s obviously an rewarding perk! And let’s say you already have the book, a
mind-blowing hack I love to do which you can try out too is to read the actual book and
listen to the audiobook at the same time at twice the playback speed which is proven to
be an easy way to read faster with better comprehension. I truly believe if more people read or listen
to Think & Grow Rich, the principles learned from it can truly help direct your ambitions
and life goals towards real success! It’s that incredible of a book, which you
will soon realize. So, if you’re interested in checking out

    My Principles on getting rich:

    1. Have faith in God (Remember God is Love and He wants to bless us)

    2. Do your best always (and rest after)

    3. Help people (Give to the poor teach them how to be rich so they can help their fellow poor to be rich)

    4. Take care of your body (Go to the gym, eat nutritious food, be healthy)
    – Stop doing bad habits

    5. 10-20-70 rule (10 percent of your income you give to people who really need it especially the poor, 20 percent of your income you save it, 70 percent you spend it)

    6. Live below your means (If you can't afford it now don't buy it, but have the mindset of "I will find out solutions to afford it.")

    – Don't buy the things you do not need
    – But the things that you want if you are now financially stable to the things that you need

    7. Don't be afraid to fail it's normal and part of the process as Thomas Edison said, "I haven't failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

    8. Positive Thinking and Positive Actions (Smile, Appreciate what you have, Stop hating and start loving, Forgive.)

    9. Education and Entertainment – You can educate and entertain yourself through youtube and google. Entertainment is important because we human beings get bored and we need someone or something to entertain ourselves, as for me I watch K-pop and NBA. Education is important because without it you won't live tomorrow. So it has to be both Entertainment and Education.

    10. Save. Invest, Spend (Correctly and Intelligently), Give and Repeat.

    11. Stop thinking about other peoples negative opinion, they do not determine your future and they don't care about you. Just ignore and forgive them.

    12. Don't hate people just love

    Thank you so much hope this will help you. I am rich and getting richer (God's grace), I have a business and an orphanage. Always remember "You are blessed to bless."

    ⛔ Start living…. It's time to step out from the MATRIX ?⚫‼ To be successful, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with a busy schedule, next to impossible. But the best part is, the more you accomplish, the more you’ll want to do, the higher you’ll want to reach. So as long as you have the hunger for success, you will always have the power within you to achieve it….?From Paul ??????
