Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve

This is an evergreen, wonderful and magnificent book. Ever since I read it, it has revolutionized my mindset and the way I looked toward life, money and in turn changed my attitude about achieving success. I was inspired by all the chapters two of which I can’t forget are ” I will never stop because men say no” a sub of chapter 1 and the chapter on the subconscious mind because that’s the main thing we need to control.
Below are some quotes that caught my attention.

Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.

Both poverty and riches are offsprings of thoughts.

Napoleon Hill was an American author, born on the 26th of October, 1883 and died on November
