In 1908 a young journalist, Napoleon Hill, interviewed billionaire industrialist Andrew Carnegie, who at the time was one of the most powerful men in the world. Carnegie believed that the process of success could be captured in a simple formula that could be duplicated by the average person. Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview over 500 successful men and women, many of them millionaires, in order to discover and publish this formula for success.
His book “Think and Grow Rich” was published in 1937
Hill concluded that to emulate the most successful people it was necessary to follow these principles:
Define your Sense of Purpose and All-Consuming Goal
Create the Self Confidence and Belief that you can Achieve what you Desire.
Master the Principles of Success.
Acquire the Specialized Knowledge that will Achieve your Goal.
