This book will change your mindset in order to become richer. The book is the result of more than 20 years of study of many successful persons.

Here is the lessons will help you to become rich.

1. Burning Desire – 

Napoleon Hill states it, “The starting point of all achievement.” This is the first step towards riches.
Burning Desire is not a hope! It is a keen, pulsating Desire, which transcended everything else. It was Definite.

“The greatest achievement was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.” 


  • 6 Steps to getting riches – 
  1. Don’t say ” I want plenty of money. “Be Definite as to the amount.
  2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire
  3. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
  4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
  5. Write down clearly the amount of money, date of acquisition, what do you expect to give in return and your plans.
  6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning.
2. Faith – 
The second step towards Riches. FAITH is a state f mind may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind.
Your idea, plan or purpose are placed in the mind through repetition of thoughts. Do not fill your mind with fear, doubt, and unbelief in your ability to connect with your ideas, plans, and purposes.
3. Auto – Suggestions – 
When you have Faith in yourself and you repeat your ideas and purposes over and over again, your ideas and thoughts will turn into material things. The psychologists have named this law of “auto-suggestion.”
The law of auto auto-suggestion conveys your thoughts to the subconscious mind. It does not concern whether thoughts are positive or negative. That is why I tell you not to have negative thoughts.
“According to the way you set your sails of thoughts, The law of auto-suggestion will take you to the destination.”
4. Specialized Knowledge – 
You need a piece of special knowledge in order to achieve something great in life. Decide the sort of specialized knowledge you require. To a large extent your major purpose in life, the goal toward which you are working, will help determine what knowledge you need.
It can be gained in below ways,
  1. One’s own experiences and education.
  2. Colleges and Universities.
  3. Public Libraries.
  4. Special Training Courses.
“If you determined to become a wealthy business person, you should acquire specialized knowledge related to business and professional fields.”
5. Imagination – 
“The great leaders of business, industry, finance, and the great  artists, musician, poets, and writers become great because they developed creative imagination.”
Take time and create definite and clear imaginations on all the key dimensions in your life in mind.
It means, imaginations on all what kind of a house you want to live in, the car you want to drive, the lifestyle you want to spend and the amount of money you want to have.
Imagine you have already achieved everything you want to. Practice this daily. Clear mental imaginations draw material things.
Do not discourage, it takes time t to create a world for you. Keep going.
