Think and Grow Rich written by Napoleon Hill. This book was written by author Napoleon Hill after interviewing 500 of the world's most successful people. For your information, let me tell you that it took them twenty years to do all this. One by one, we will discuss all the principles of this book. So let's start with the first principle.
1st Principle - Desire means intense desire to do something
Without will power, you cannot do any work unless you have a strong desire to do it, you will not be encouraged to do any work.
To be successful in any task, first of all, you must have a strong desire for it, So that it inspires you to take steps in that direction.
That is like whatever you give a though to something it will grow and come into existence.
For example if you imagine our mind is like a plant and we have to continuously give water to it in the form of positive affirmation and take actions towards it, So that one day that plant of thought will grow into a massive tree of our thoughts.
Let me tell you the an interesting story about how Edwin C. Barnes had a strong desire to do business with Thomas Edison. This was not just a wish or a wish, as Barnes had a strong desire to work with Edison and was sure he would succeed in doing business with Edison.
When Barnes met Edison for the first time, he did not get a chance to do business with him, but after a few years whenever he met Edison again, his wish was fulfilled and he was Edison's business partner. Friends did not believe that Barnes would ever become Edison's business partner, but due to his intense will and confidence, he managed to do business with Edison.
2nd Principle - Faith means Unwavering Faith
The Second Principle says that when there is a strong desire to get something in the mind, due to that desire there is also an unwavering belief in the mind.
To fulfil any desire, you should have unwavering belief that it is possible and you will achieve it. When you have unwavering faith in the fulfilment of your desire, then you work in the same direction and that desire starts taking shape.
You have to have an unwavering belief in your mind that you will definitely get what you want, because unwavering faith fulfils your desires.
If you have difficulty in believing unbreakable, then repeat the things repeatedly in your mind that you can get what you want and your wish will definitely be fulfilled. Repeating something repeatedly is called affirmation.
When you repeat an affirmation again and again in the mind, that matter sits in your subconscious mind and you start to feel the truth. Repeating something repeatedly builds your unwavering faith in it.
