Featured Book: How To Own Your Own Mind
Author: Napoleon Hill
Book Publication: Sept. 2017
Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich book consistently appears at the top of business and success book lists; it’s a classic that has been reread countless times and passed down to new generations of eager students. But what if there was a new tome of wisdom from the motivational master?
First compiled in 1941 but forgotten due to the onset of World War II, Napoleon Hill’s 20-year study of the greatest American success stories has been recently rediscovered and is now being republished for a new generation. How to Own Your Own Mind is Napoleon Hill’s study of how to achieve success through organized thinking. Divided into three chapters – Creative Vision, Organized Thought, and Controlled Attention – How to Own Your Own Mind teaches readers how to think before acting, recognize opportunities, define one’s Definite Major Purpose, and then act on this knowledge.
Full of examples of the greatest American minds, such as Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Alexander Graham Bell, How to Own Your Own Mind stresses the importance of thought before action, or your actions will be wasted.
About the Author: Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in Wise Country, Virginia. He worked as a secretary, a “mountain reporter” for a local newspaper, as the manager of a coal mine and a lumber yard, and attended law school before he began working as a journalist for Bob Taylor’s Magazine. This job led to his meeting steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, which changed the course of his life.
Carnegie believed success could be distilled into principles that anyone could follow, and encouraged Hill to interview the greatest industrialists of the era to discover these principles. The resulting book, Think and Grow Rich, has sold 20 million copies worldwide. Hill devoted the remainder of his life to discovering and refining the principles of success.
