It was 2007.

After learning about it from the most unlikely source, I drove to Borders bookstore and picked up my first copy.

I say “first copy” because I’ve probably purchased a few dozen copies over the years. Mostly to give away to friends and family who’ve expressed an interest in becoming more successful.

It was the book that introduced me to the power of the subconscious mind; how nothing great is ever accomplished without imagination, belief, and a burning desire; how to make decisions quickly and change them slowly.

If I’d never stumbled upon this book, you and I probably wouldn’t know each other. It redirected the course of my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. And for that I’m deeply grateful.

I’ve made it a point to reread this book at least once a year. Every time I read it, I get something new and different than the time before. The words are the same, but I’m not the same. Every pass I make through it leads me to think in new ways. And the application of its wisdom results in continuous growth. Not only in business, but as a human being.

I’m not the only one who’s been deeply influenced by this book. Since it was first published in 1937, over 100 million copies have been sold. Its 13 success principles have been the bedrock for countless achievements in all areas of life. If you haven’t read it, you must.

Today on the podcast, Bob Proctor shares the story of how this book, Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, changed his life some 60 years ago.
