Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Master Key: privilege of creating, in your own mind, a burning desire for a definite form of riches.

Six Ways to Turn Desire into Gold

1.Fix in your mind the EXACT amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient to just say “I want plenty of money’. You must be definite about the amount, there is a psychological reason for this that we shall discuss in a later article.

2. Determine EXACTLY what you are going to give in return for the money. There is no such reality as something for nothing.

3. Establish a DEFINITE date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

4. Create a DEFINITE plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, ready or not, to put this plan into action.

5. Write out a clear and CONCISE statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money and describe, clearly, the plan which you intend to use to accumulate it.

6. Read you written statement, aloud, twice daily. Once just before you go to bed at night, and again immediately on rising. As you read – see, and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.


e) Ally yourself with a group of as many people as you may need for the creation and carrying out of your plan or plans for the accumulation of money – making use of the “Master Mind” principle described in a later chapter. (Compliance with this instruction is absolutely essential. Do not neglect it.)

f) Before forming your ‘Master Mind’ alliance, decide what advantages and benefits you may offer the individual members of your group, in return for their cooperation. No one will work indefinitely without some form of compensation. No intelligent person will either request or expect another to work without adequate compensation, although this may not always be in the form of money.

g) Arrange to meet with the members of your ‘Master Mind’ group at least twice a week, and more often if possible, until you have jointly perfected the necessary plan or plans for the accumulation of money.

h) Maintain perfect harmony between yourself and every member of your ‘Master Mind’ group. If you fail to carry out this instruction to the letter, you may expect to meet with failure. The “Master Mind” principle cannot obtain where perfect harmony does not prevail.

Keep in mind

– You are engaged in an undertaking of major importance to you. To be sure of success, you must have plans which are faultless.

– You must have the advantage of the experience, education, native ability and imagination of other minds. This is in harmony with the methods followed by every person who has accumulated a great fortune.


The End!
