Think and Grow Rich summary

I am working on to tweet book summaries in order for most of us to get quickly inspired, and for that, everybody can share a certain book’s concepts to a worldwide audiences.

The first one was a summary of  the book The Science of Getting Rich, a book that was the major inspiration of the film and the book The Secret.

As for my second project, I summarized one of the greatest book of all time, Think And Grow Rich. The book sold 70 million copies worldwide since it was published in 1937, during the Great Depression. The author was inspired by a suggestion from Andrew Carnegie, a “rags-to-riches” multi-millionaire businessman.

The Science of Getting Rich – Summary

I am working on to tweet book summaries in order for most of us to get quickly inspired, and for that, everybody can share a certain book’s concepts to a worldwide audiences.

For my first project, I summarized the classic book “The Science of Getting Rich”, by Wallace D. Wattles. I had chosen to do a summary of this timeless book because this is my basis for my great wealth attraction. I’m looking forward to share to you the principles to which I always give credit for.

The book consists of 17 chapters. You can read all the chapters below, in brief and “twitter” style, so you will get a quick preview of what the book is all about.

And for the last chapter, the summary of all summaries:

If you like what you had quickly learned and want to get a full experience, I recommend you to get this book, either by buying a hard-copy of it, or by downloading it. I am sure you will not regret it.

As A Man Thinketh Summary

All that we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts. As a Man Thinketh is a classic in the truest sense: few books have been so widely read, have stood the test of time so well, have had such an impact on generations of readers, and have carried such a simple, profound message: You are what you think.

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

thoughts actions habits character destiny

“By the right choice and true application of thought, man ascends to the Divine Perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beast.”

divine perfection

“A man’s mind may be linked to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild.”

cultivate positive thinking

“Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.” “Wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when they harmonise with thoughts and actions.”

the metaphysical secret law of attraction

“Man has to right himself that the universe is right, and during the process of putting himself right, he will find that as he alters his thoughts towards things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.”

“A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances.”

“There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice.” He who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.”

achievement motivation quotes

“The strength of the effort is the measure of the result. Chance is not. Gifts, powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort.”

high effort high results

“Strength can only be developed by effort and practice. . .Adding effort to effort, patience to patience, and strength to strength , will never cease to develop, and will at last grow divinely strong.”

effort practice patience strength

“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil. The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream.”

Dreams are the seedlings
