Napoleon Hill’s timeless classic, Think and Grow Rich, has the distinction of being the best read self–help book of the twentieth century. Not so well known is how Hill earned his livelihood before he wrote ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
Another classic work of Dr. Hill is ‘How to Own Your Own Mind’ which shows the way to stabilise your mind and achieve success in life. As Dr. Hill repeatedly emphasised, action is critical to success. But you must think before you act or your actions will be wasted.
These timeless chapters about the importance of thought before action will prove to be very instructive in helping you attain your own Definite Major Purpose. To do so, you must learn how to own your own mind, and this book will tell you how to do it.
