Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
I really enjoyed this book. Mr. Hill wrote it in a very straightforward and flowing manner and it was easy reading. He touted the book as his compilation of moneymaking secrets, and included sixteen different chapters with titles like, The Power of Thought, Imagination: The Work of the Mind, and Power of the Master Mind: The Driving Force. He detailed different ways in which a person could become rich, with each chapter building on the last one.
Although I originally believed that Mr. Hill wrote the book with an eye for material and financial riches, I approached the reading with an eye on how to gain spiritual prosperity. All the same principles would apply, and after finishing the book, I had to ask myself if Mr. Hill had written the book with that exact intent for the reader to discover.
There was so much wisdom to be gleaned from this book, and I have no doubt this is one of those books that I will be reading several times throughout my life. If I had to pick a favorite chapter, it would have to be the one entitled The Sixth Sense: The Door to the Temple of Wisdom. In it, Mr. Hill states, "Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by meditation through mind development from within.” He reiterates, "...the spiritual forces with which the sixth sense is so closely related only mature and become usable through years of mediation, self-examination, and self-thought.”
I know how my morning meditations give me a sense of serenity and clarity throughout the day. That is the only way I can describe it. It is a struggle some days when I wake up and feel like have a million things I have to do, so the last thing I would want is to slow down my mind and do some breathing and meditation. I realize though, especially after reading this book, that I have to make sure that daily meditation is an essential part of my lifestyle.Purchase The Book
