Most successful entrepreneurs are avid readers. Daily personal development is crucial for success. We all have books that have helped us along our journey. The first self improvement book I ever read was, ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill. This book is one of the ones I have seen on the recommended reading list of people in the present day that have achieved great success. The book was published in 1937 and it is based on the interviews of 500 of the greatest men of the early 20th century. Just to name a few, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison and John D. Rockefeller. The book was written a long time ago but if you read the revised version, it as just as relevant now.
There are many similarities between successful people and their habits. The truth is, if you want to be successful you need to be disciplined and if you aspire to be like someone you have to copy the things they did to become successful. This book impacted me the most because it helped me to believe that anything is possible if you believe it, and if you are willing to do the work in order to get it. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, “Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve.”
Napoleon Hill writes about how desire is the starting point of all achievement. It taught me how important having a vision is and how to put my vision into pictures where you can look at them every single day. Which is the vision board everyone talks about today. I revisit this book often when I am looking for inspiration, more than any other book that I have ever read. Which is why this is still my tried and true favorite book to this day.
