Have you ever had one of those days in your life when you thought things were really not going your way or that the universe was conspiring against to make your life difficult on that day, we all have right? Did you also ever look back at one of those day and think, aha that is why all of that happened.
I had one of these days very recently, and that was the day I started reading the famous book by Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich.
January 2016 and I had arrived at a friend’s apartment in Spain for the first day of a holiday. As the place where I was staying had no broadband I had ordered a portable wifi hot spot. For various reasons this wasn’t delivered to my home before I left so was to be delivered to the apartment and I was told it could be anytime between 8am and 8pm, great ! No internet for 12 hours, how would I cope? On top of that phone signal was awful and I was told I wouldn’t be called when the courier was due so I had to stay in.
Anyway as the day dragged on and I got more and more agitated at the Spanish courier service I decided that reading a book was the option. That is when I picked up Think and Grow Rich.
I had skimmed through the book before but never truly read it and applied the Carnegie formula. That day changed my life and if it had not been for all of those circumstances coming together I wouldn’t be sitting here right now writing this. I look back at that day and the Spanish courier service with a huge amount of gratitude.
So what am I trying to share with you here. If you have never read Think and Grow Rich, but you would like to create more abundance in your life I urge you to do so. If you have read it but you haven’t applied the principles, go back to it and start again. This book has had an amazing effect on my life and on the lives of many many famous people since it was first published in 1937 and will continue to do so. Since reading this book I have more abundance of time, energy and wealth in my life.
Below is an excerpt from the back cover of the original version.
‘Be prepared, therefore, when you expose yourself to the influence of this philosophy, to experience a CHANGED LIFE which may help you not only to negotiate your way through life with harmony and understanding , but also to prepare you for the accumulation of material riches in abundance. Teaching for the first time, the famous Carnegie formula for money-making, based upon THIRTEEN PROVEN STEPS TO RICHES’.
Whilst writing this I have checked out how to get hold of it and it is available on You Tube for free and in PDF format online for free, but my advice would be, go out buy yourself a copy and work through it slowly one chapter at a time and when you have mastered that chapter move on to the next.
This book will take you to another level.
There is of course another message here and that it that sometimes when things seem like they are not going our week there may be a very good and positive reason why things are the way they are we just haven’t seen it yet.
