First published in 1937, during the Great Depression, it’s the book that a large number of hugely-successful people credit with helping them rise to that status.
I hope that Napoleon Hill’s classic, Think And Grow Rich is in a very visible place in your personal library, highlighted, underlined, well-notated and dog-eared. I also hope that you’ve read it numerous times and that you continue to do so. It’s principles are timeless and its lessons are invaluable.
A very well-known authority on both Napoleon Hill and Think And Grow Rich is my friend, Tony Rubleski, a marketing maven known best as the author of the Mind Capture series of books. In conjunction with the Napoleon Hill Foundation, he is also the host and creator of the upcoming, historic event, “Think and Grow Rich Summit 2013.”
In this chat, Tony and I discuss several things, including what we each believe were the two all-encompassing big ideas (of many) that weaved its way throughout the fabric of the book. We’ll then look at the biggest detriment to individual success.
And, we’ll discuss the book Hill wrote in 1938 as a follow-up to Think And Grow Rich, but never published…until more than 70 years later.
Entitled, “Outwitting the Devil” the book ranks right up there with its predecessor. But, the back story regarding why it was kept unpublished for so long is both heart-breaking and enlightening. Tony will explain.
Enjoy our chat!
Can you imagine the conversations that took place between Napoleon Hill and Mrs. Hill, and eventually the relatives about whether or not to allow Outwitting the Devil to be published? One can only imagine how much not publishing it tore at Dr. Hill’s heart, knowing that he had information that would keep so many people from succumbing to what I referred to in our discussion as “The ‘D’ Word” (and, no, the D does not stand for devil) Turns out, it’s much worse. 🙂
* Be sure and check out the information for the event, including a complete list of those who will be presenting. I have a feeling this is going to be a fantastic three days!
