Napoleon Hill was a very successful author-lecturer who lived in the last century and is widely considered to be one of the great pioneers of the personal success movement. Mr. Hill was born into extremely humble beginnings, yet he rose to fame and fortune helping millions of people master the keys to success. What I find most impressive about Mr. Hill was his ability to pick himself up after every defeat, (he had more than a few) dust himself off, and get back in the game. His life story is a true example of how persistence beats resistance. In this video, Mr. Hill places great emphasis on how success starts in your thinking first and foremost, and the need for the proper mindset.
We present a lot of material about the steps to success in start-ups and in crowdfunding here at Vision Launch, but one of the main ingredients that is essential to being an entrepreneur is the mental fortitude to push through all the resistance you will encounter to make your venture a success. You can follow all the steps to success to perfection, but without the mental focus required through the tough times, success will be fleeting at best.
This material and video is not like the usual ones we post on our site, and it’s certainly more esoteric in nature. This subject matter is not for everyone, but I thought it was an important tool worth exposing to our readers who are not familiar with Napoleon Hill’s work. Although the video is dated, the message is as true today as it was over 70 years ago.
This video is based on Napoleon Hill’s bestselling book, “Think & Grow Rich” which sold over 20 million copies at the time of his death in 1970. To date, the book has sold over 70 million copies and is still available, so it’s clearly not a fad. Also, don’t let the title fool you, this topic is about more than just attaining material wealth, it’s about achieving success in all areas of life. The title of the book was changed to Think & Grow Rich for marketing purposes. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking self-improvement in all areas of life. It’s a small book (just over 200 pages) and an easy read, which can be done in a short time.
