Think and Grow Rich Book Review: Chapter 4- Autosuggestion

New Photo w Logos

In chapter 4 we learn all the nuances of Autosuggestion.

What are the things that hold us back from attaining what we want in life?

In some respects we are held back by a system that makes us into employees as soon as we are old enough to go to school. Autosuggestion can be a tool that helps us to break the cycle of continuous training for a cubicle world. In 1937 Napoleon Hill was not looking at a culture of cubicles, but was staring down the barrel of a factory populace who trudged off to work every day at the car plant, or the steel mill, or the defense plant, or the Tennessee Valley Authority. They needed Autosuggestion as badly then as we need it now.

What is Autosuggestion?

Our mental capabilities are composed of the conscious day-to-day world which is fed by all of our senses. The underlying drive for who we are and what we can become is contained more in the subconscious then in the conscious narrative. To get to a point where we are bringing success and riches into our lives, we have to focus on building dreams and goals and voicing them repetitively every single day. You have to get to the point where you are repetitively speaking with emotion about your goals and your dreams. Over time, the consistent repetition of voicing your dreams will begin to make them move from only a thought into the concrete world of reality.

Voice your Desires

The example that I gave in my YouTube video was if you know you want to make $30,000 a month by March 2015, then you must repetitively speak to the universe and give voice to the stream constantly. If you can continue to give voice to the stream of consciousness on a consistent daily basis, then this dream will move from dream state to a reality state.

Chapter 4 was the shortest chapter of the book so far, but if length were a measure of importance, then this chapter would not even rank on the list of most influential chapters of this book. But length is not a measure of importance in Think and Grow Rich, and this is probably one of the most important chapters Hill wrote. The central theme of this book, to think and grow rich, cannot occur unless the individual has already established a mindset that attracts and visualizes long-term success. Without a background of fervent desire and an indomitable spirit that fosters a given result, the other tenets contained in the book will not be able to produce results. The dreams and desires that are obsessively believed are the foundation of success in an entrepreneurial venture.

To give a Short summary:

Autosuggestion is the act of continually and repetitively voicing your inner-most dreams and desires. Once these are continually voiced and thought about, the garden of your subconscious will begin to germinate these ideas. Once they have taken root in the fertile ground of the subconscious through constant invoking, the reality will begin to merge with the mind-set to forge a phalanx of success.

Let your DREAMS live and voice them loudly DAILY!

Think and Grow Rich Book Review: Chapter 2

New Photo w Logos A Focused Mind-Set?

What is it in the psyche that makes someone persevere and overcome obstacles?

What talents do you need to have to be successful and get to a point where you are accepting riches into your life?


In the second chapter of Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill gives us a snapshot of just what is necessary to get to your final destination. The first story that he

relayed had to do with the Chicago fire in the late 1800s. After the fire all of the merchants had two different paths that they could follow. They could either stay

and rebuild and make a new Chicago, or they could leave the city completely and go somewhere else to begin business anew. All of the merchants and shopkeepers

decided to leave except for one. Marshall Fields decided to stay in Chicago and rebuild. He even told his fellow business owners that he was prepared to rebuild on

the ashes where his store had once stood. This is exactly what he did, and he fulfilled his promise of making the biggest store in the area once he had completed his rebuild.

Burning Desire

Hill also comments about other people who overcame obstacles because they had what he termed a “burning desire” to succeed. Among those that he named were

Helen Keller, Booker T. Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, and Henry Ford. Taking them one at a time: Keller overcame incredible obstacles in terms of lacking sight

and hearing, while Booker T. Washington overcame racism and intolerance in the post-Civil War South. Abraham Lincoln was completely obsessed and fixated on freeing

the slaves, while Thomas Edison used 10,000 tries to get to a successful electric light. Henry Ford used those around him to build an automobile giant based on the simplicity of interchangeable

parts and an affordable model. What do all of these people have in common? They had a dream and they did not let anything dissuade them from attaining a successful resolution. They used their

obsessions to focus their talents to a laser-light point and complete the journey that they themselves knew was their destiny.

Blair Hill: A Profile in Burning Desire

Another story that Hill told was that of his son Blair. Now Blair Hill was born without ears and also without the auditory structures to enable him to hear. Napoleon Hill and his wife never actually let

Blair know or feel that he was different from anyone else. Even at an early age when he could not hear, Napoleon Hill never treated them any differently and spoke to him with the knowledge that one day his

son would be able to hear. Blair Hill successfully completed his school work and went on to college where he eventually was given a hearing aid that did allow him to hear clearly for the first time. He then

approached the company that made the hearing aid and they were so impressed with the young Blair Hill that he was brought on board the company to be an intermediary with those in the community who

were deaf.

Dream Big and Make Those Dreams Your Reality

Dreams are what we need to keep us whole, and the dreams that we have are the basis for thinking and growing rich. If people who have overcome such great obstacles can succeed in life and in business, then

using your dreams as a touchstone  for successful future is the only way to systematically build wealth. You must have a dream and focus on that dream with laser-like precision.

Our dreams are what keep us alive, and without them life is a barren desert.
