Think And Grow Rich

Although Think and Grow Rich may be the writing that Napoleon Hill is most famous for, it was not his first and certainly not his last, either. That book did go on to become one of the world’s all-time best-selling books (selling more than 30-million copies and counting) not only in its genre, but amongst all categories, and it continues to go strong today. The reason is that the message and education offered in Think and Grow Rich is timeless—a message of success and achievement, of making the most of life. It is also a message that is in good company with the rest of the works of Napoleon Hill.

Timeless Lessons From Napoleon Hill

Think And Grow RichIt is virtually impossible to list all of the works of Napoleon Hill. Like most writers, there are many texts that never saw the light of publication day, and also many works that preceded his fame that went without the fanfare and notice of his more important and famous self empowerment works.

Among the first of Hill’s works were countless newspaper articles that he wrote as a “mountain reporter” in Wise County, Virginia, in the United States (the region where Hill was born into virtual poverty). His career as a reporter spanned many years, beginning at the very young age of 13 and continuing on into his early adulthood. Although much of that work has been effectively lost to us today, it did serve set the stage for all of his later works. Had it not been for the reporting assignment that led him to Andrew Carnegie’s door, there would probably be no Think and Grow Rich, or any of Hill’s other treasured works.

As we’ve discussed before, Carnegie encouraged Hill to work to uncover the formula for success that is common among all people of wealth and success. This is the work that later inspired and served as the cornerstone of Think and Grow Rich. But both before and after that book was written, the lessons and information gathered from that experience also birthed other works of Hill’s. The most prominent of those are these following here.

The Many Works Of Napoleon Hill

  1. Hill’s Golden Rule Magazine.
    One of Hill’s first works was Hill’s Golden Rule Magazine, which Napoleon Hill edited and published himself from 1919 to 1920.
  2. The Law Of Success.
    The Law of Success
    was the first work that compiled what Hill learned from his interviews with more than 500 of the world’s most wealthy and successful people. It was originally offered as a home-study course in 1928. The course was also offered through a 17-volume course known as the “Mental Dynamite” series through 1941, but the outbreak of World War II put an end to the series for that time.
  3. The Magic Ladder to Success.
    One of Hill’s next inspiring works was The Magic Ladder to Success, published in 1930 (sometimes referred to as simply, The Ladder to Success). This book is considered something of a pre-cursor and condensed version of the success formula that would later grow to become Think and Grow Rich. It details each of the principles of success that Hill deduced.
  4. Think And Grow Rich.
    Although we have already talked plenty about it, there is no listing the works of the great Napoleon Hill without including this classic empowerment text published in 1937. Think and Grow Rich, the basis for our own Mindset Mastery series, is an even more elaborate and detailed discussion of the principles of success. The book stops just short of actually telling you what the secret to success is, as Hill believed it was more important for you to learn for yourself after careful study of the book and its major principles.

Further Works By Napoleon Hill

Once Napoleon Hill gained fame and momentum from his early works, and most specifically Think and Grow Rich, he went on to produce several other works that were more targeted for solving specific issues relating to success and personal achievement. If you have read Think and Grow Rich or have followed in our Mindset Mastery series, you will see how many of these volumes grew directly from the chapters and pages of Think and Grow Rich. Some of these later works include:

  • How to Sell Your Way Through Life, published in 1939
  • The Master Key to Riches, 1945
  • How to Raise Your Own Salary, 1953
  • Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, 1959
  • You Can Work Your Own Miracles, 1971, published posthumously after Hill’s death in 1970

Think And Grow Rich

Napoleon HillNeither of these lists of the works of Napoleon Hill are at all conclusive of his life’s work, although they do include most of the most important works of his life. In addition to his printed works, however, Napoleon Hill also worked in collaboration with other authors such as W. Clement Stone and also delivered many lectures and educational series and presentations.

Napoleon Hill passed away in 1970, but not before leaving a lifetime’s legacy of teachings. The continued popularity of his works prove them to be the timeless, viable, important contributions that they are, helping people by the millions to succeed and live their best lives possible.

Just as Napoleon Hill did, I encourage you to Think And Grow Rich!

  1. Yet another wonderful synopsis of Hill. Well done Sean!. Thank you for the list of his major works as well. Some I have in my library and some I’m yet to track down. Along with Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’ I think that it is important to ‘READ and Grow Rich’ as well!
    To 2010 and beyond

    Thank you for the article on “Think and grow rich” I read this book 30 years ago, it never made me super rich but made me better able to run a successful business, now I would like my son to read it.

  3. Harry Lynn says:

    Happy New Year Sean to you and your family. Thankyou for this wonderful series of blogs. With this book and SLOA it is impossible to go wrong.

  4. I first read Think and Grow Rich 40 years ago. It is one of the dozen or so books that most contributed to my success as one of the world leaders in my field of expertise. I can still think of the biggest mistake I made in applying the principles (picking the wrong people in my master mind group), but mistakes are valuable when we learn from them. Also the principles that most contributed to my success as a salary earner (persistence, doing that little bit better than the next person, keeping healthy, positive mental attitude). But passion … my passion was elsewhere, and that is where I truly succeeded.

    I hope 2010 brings you lots of delightful surprises.

  5. Dayle Block says:

    Thank you Sean, I am sooo grateful and I am feeling really good about 2010 – it’s going to be THE year!!!

  6. Happy New Year and thanks for a wonderful overview and yes, I am thinking!

  7. Thanks for a great article and Happy New Year to you. One of my favorite Napoleon Hill books is Grow Rich with Peace of Mind. It taught me the importance of having balance in all areas of life, not just pursuing money.

  8. Hi Sean
    I would like to thank you twice for your encouraging words, thougths and hopes for this new year/decade. Looking forward to see great things happening as I believe trully this is the year of the affiliate that I must not waste.
    Cheers for 2010

  9. Jack Kerr says:

    What thinking person could fail to be touched with humility after Napoleon Hill”s interview.To know we have the power of control of our thoughts and therefore our own destiny is one thing,to use it quite another.Eternal vigilance of our thoughts is difficult.Enyone got any advice on how to do it?

  10. A true timeless classic!

  11. Hi Sean, it’s interesting to see what else he wrote. You mentioned also that Napoleon Hill also co-authored books – which made me smile because I suddenly remembered my first contact with Napoleon Hill’s books.
    After I graduated I got a voucher for a book of my choice, and I picked “Success through a positive mental attitude” (ok, I chose the German translation as my english wasn’t very good at that time). And I remember that my classmates looked very strangely at me because of that choice, but I loved it.
    .-= Renee´s last blog ..Overcoming Procrastination =-.

  12. I read Think & Grow Rich around 30 years ago. Although I didn’t go on to have any obvious successes in life as a result, it did start me questioning things more than I would have. I started to question everything and held faith that I could find the truth about stuff if I questioned enough. Out and into 2 careers later, I discovered a path to health I am passionate about. It is so ‘wierd’ that not many would recognise it as containing truth.
    It’s funny that now I am revisiting this book to find many similar principles that coincide between gaining perfect health, and understanding/gaining wealth.

  13. Thanks for sharing Hill’s lesser-known works with us. I, for one, certainly didn’t know about the extent of his writing. What an accomplished writer. One to look up to.
    .-= Lina Nguyen´s last blog ..How to make comments online and build your online persona =-.

  14. Napoleon Hill is certainly a person to look up to as an emerging author. I, too, have countless pieces written and realize more and more every day that it takes just one to spread for an author to seem brilliant and last forever.
    .-= Sarah Butland´s last blog ..I Am Attracting You and Your Vote Via Law Of Attraction =-.

  15. I never realised that he wrote so many different pieces, and so many books 🙂
    What a clever man, to use his words to share with others. I wonder what happened to the books Napoleon Hill wrote but never got published? Are they in a safe place or on display for others to see?
    “Think and Grow Rich” is all in the mindset….change your attitude and you will change your life. I heard from another wealth creater that if you Read TGR a page a day, within a year you will be on your way to changing your life for ever more….
    Thanks for sharing Sean, I love to read and learn
    .-= Lisa Wood´s last blog ..Its Meant To Be =-.

  16. I had no idea that Napoleon Hill had written these. So thankyou for sharing.

    What I learnt is that he didn’t stop at ONE, dust off his hands and say “my job is done.” When you have a passion you keep going, you keep learning, keep stretching yourself. He knew his self worth and then value in his message. And you got to start somwhere with something so why procrastinate thinking you have to wait until you get it all before making a start.

    It’s a real lesson to me, that’s for sure!

    Hi Sean,

    I had no idea that Napoleon Hill had written so many books. I bet that some of these other works are just as valuable as ‘Think and Grow Rich’. I’m going to hunt them down and see how Hill developed as time went on. You would have to think that he would just get better and better, so it’s going to be really interesting.

    Hill really did spend his entire life on projects that were designed to help people learn to better themselves and live fulfilling lives of their choice. He really did live his passion. One life spent in service of millions more. I find that to be very special.

  18. Hi Sean,
    It’s all so overwhelming I’m speechless! So much info for my little brain, Lol !

    Seriously though: Do we have any more on his great writings that is easily accessible? His Think And Grow Rich book, that you have a pic of here is a familiar sight to me. I have a copy here beside me also. I love this book. I became aware of it and purchased it during my property investing days. Not so long ago.

    I also have another 17 of them here that has T&GR purple covers. I bought 20 of them from Stuart Zadel, after a seminar Bought to give away for free with tickets to his next seminar. I only managed to give 3 away but it was an amazing experience.
    1st one I gave to a woman in line at the supermarket and she couldn’t believe it! She shared her experiences with me that she is attracting money and gifts and gave me her contact phone number to keep in touch.
    2nd one, the lady on the cash-register heard and I had another one with me to give to her as well.
    3rd one I gave to an acquaintance at a meeting and she went on to attend Stuarts T&GR seminar and she purchased a $6,500.00 package. So, my original $100.00 investment to buy the books caused me to received over $600.00 in commission from the purchase. I guess I could say Napoleon Hill has been good to me so far and I’m only just starting, Sounds pretty good !

    Not bad for someone who was stuck for words in the begin. Lol ! 😀

    • Hi Jill,

      that sounds like you are living the law of attraction all ready – well done! I am sure you will find 17 more people who will be grateful to you for receiving that book!

          Hi Jill, Renee and Sarah,

          Wow Jill! I think it’s amazing that you took the chance and it’s paid off. It just proves that if we follow the principles, they will work. I think it’s great that you had belief in the product and yourself and you took action.

  19. Thanks for this posting. Like those above me, I have not read other works of Napolean Hill. I will remedy that. He is an inspiring writer, and his techniques work.

    We are all privileged he spent his life as he did, to share with us all – just as we are thankful you are here for us as well.

    May we all pay it forward.

  20. Hi Sean,

    thank you very much for putting this together. I haven’t known the other books yet, so your list is very helpful for me.

    I’m reading the book for the third time now, the first time was a heavily shortened German version. Now I have a complete English version I read together with my mastermind group.

    It’s very intereresting to review one’s own feelings and reactions when reading it again: Something hs definitely changed since the last time, his teachings become more and more real.

    Take care
