Think First, then Fire Yourself Second

business growth goals personal productivity

Written in 1937, one of the most referenced books of successful entrepreneurs and leaders is Napoleon Hill’s, Think and Grow Rich.  This book examines the psychological power of thought and the brain in the process of furthering your career for both monetary and personal satisfaction.

I actually avoided reading this book for years, since I thought “money” was a dirty word. However, the tips on goal setting alone are worth reading this book. 

Quick Summary of Napoleon's 12 Key Tenets: 

1. The Power of Thoughts:
Your thoughts have the ability to shape your reality. Think positively and visualize your goals, as your mind can attract the opportunities and circumstances needed to achieve them.

2. Desire and Persistence: 
A burning desire combined with unwavering persistence is the key to achieving your dreams. Be clear about what you want and keep pushing forward, even when faced with obstacles.

3. Belief in Yourself:
Believe in your abilities and have faith in your potential for success. Confidence in yourself will help you overcome challenges and setbacks.

4. Setting Clear Goals:
Clearly define your goals and create a concrete plan to achieve them. Specific and measurable objectives will help guide your actions effectively.

5. Mastermind Group:
Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who share your ambitions. A mastermind group can provide support, new perspectives, and valuable insights.

6. Taking Action:
It's not enough to think and dream; you must take consistent and decisive action towards your goals. Inaction leads to stagnation, while action breeds success.

7. Overcoming Fear:
Identify and confront your fears, as they often stand in the way of progress. Overcoming fear is essential for personal growth and achieving success.

8. Learning from Failure:
Treat failure as a stepping stone to success rather than a roadblock. Learn from your mistakes, adjust your approach, and keep moving forward.

9. Imagination and Creativity:
Cultivate your imagination and tap into your creativity to generate innovative ideas and solutions.

10. Persistence and Perseverance:
Success may not come overnight, but with persistent effort and perseverance, you can achieve extraordinary results.

11. The Power of the Subconscious Mind:
Your subconscious mind plays a significant role in shaping your thoughts and actions. Train your mind to focus on positive outcomes.

12. Giving Back:
Achieving wealth and success is not solely about personal gain. Use your success to contribute positively to society and help others along their paths to success.

As you can see, if you follow these 12 strategies, you'll certainly find your way on the path of firing yourself first!
