How To Think And Grow Rich? Learn These Three Steps

Many people have read this book and didn’t have the desired effect. After finishing the book, the question left in their mind, how to Think And Grow Rich?

The philosophy is broad, compromised of 13 individual steps. And it is hard to truly understand its points after one or two readings. It is called philosophy for a reason. It has to be studied.

What is simple it can be complicated, and what is complicated can be made simple. My mission was, after reading this book for many times (and still reading), to try to simplify it so it fits on one or two pages. Every time I read the book over it has more and more sense to me.  I just don’t get a better understanding of it, more I read it,  I get better results in my life.

If you ever wondered how to Think And Grow Rich, this post can be of great help.

Think, Feel, Grow Rich

Think and Grow Rich is a practical philosophy, a simple step-by-step guide for more happier, successful, fulfilled life.  I have spent time and time analyzing it, reading, meditating, and practice it, in order to improve my life. And now when I look back, the results are amazing!

These three steps are known for a long time, and they are not something I have created. In essence, this is how we operate, whether we are aware of it or not. This is what the whole Napoleon Hill’s philosophy is about.

Step 1 – Think

The God-given ability of thinking separates us from the all living beings in our surrounding world. The power of our mind to think, and with this I mean to think positive, is the first step towards success.

The majority tend to think negative. That is how the world is. If you get negative results in your life it means you think in wrong way. And the get better results, you will have to get better thoughts. This is where the Napoleon Hill’s book can help a lot. It is filled with great stories of success, positive thinking, imagination and real facts.

I did a lot of thinking about this book. Eventually, I have realized it pulled my mind back to the positive side of life. I discovered the Secret in this book, that Napoleon talks about at the beginning. You see, my mind was magnetized with negative thinking and fear.

Later on, I started to practice this kind of thinking more and more. Few simple mental tools can help you reverse your thinking pattern.

How To Think Grow Rich



I created 10-20 min daily routine (sometimes even longer) in the morning to clear my mind of any kind of thoughts. That way when I finish I can be focused on positive thoughts all day and effectively eliminate any kind of negative thoughts from my mind.

There is no trick in meditation. Don’t think it is something only crazy people and Buddhists do. Just sit in the chair, breathe in and out, and in and out, for ten minutes trying to focus only on your breath.

I can assure you that once you get the habit of doing so, you will feel and see a change in your mind. And you will get complete control over your mind, not the other way around. Then, use this control to dream. Get into the habit of doing so.


Again, don’t mix this with religion. Affirmation is just positive statements to yourself. When there is nobody to make you positive, you can do it for yourself. If you practice affirmation for, let’s say, one month, you will be amazed by their power.

When there is nobody, try to say to yourself lines like, I am happy, I am healthy, I am wealth, I am grateful, I am powerful, I am great… Repeat them for a minute or two and continue with your day. After some time you will see the difference.

Reading, watching, listening.

Think and Grow rich is positive material. Reading it often will only benefit your mind. Furthermore, inspirational movies, success stories, all of those will influence your subconscious mind as well. You can use this on purpose to magnetize your mind to Think Rich.


“Whatever the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve.” Napoleon Hill


Step 2 – Feel

Felling of faith and self-confidence must be present if we want to accomplish anything in our life. Without it, we will only get back to the status-quo. You can develop a strong feeling of self-confidence using one or all three suggestions I gave you before. Napoleon Hill even created a Self-Confidence Formula to help his readers.

Try to use that formula. Furthermore, you can meditate some more. As you get better you will be able to quickly clear your mind of any kinds of thoughts. You can then start to practice visualization. In more simple words, daydream. You can try and imagine yourself happy, healthy and wealthy. If you will use the affirmations as well, even better.



“The cave you fear to enter holds a treasure you seek” Joseph Campbell


Use these practices to imagine good feelings of great and positive future. Keep on repeating this every day at least once. Remember nothing comes without practice. Practice builds confidence and character.

This way you will attract more of the same, which leads me to the final step.

Step 3 – Action!

So, the first two steps suppose to teach you how to Think Rich. This is where you will Grow Rich.

Do you know that action brings attraction? Whatever you think about will attract the results of your thinking into your life. Go back to some previous experience and think about it. Try to remember some good results you have got and how did you get them.

If we mix positive feelings or emotions such as faith, with our thinking, and make some action on it, we will eventually get a positive outcome in our life. The dream will come true.




“You can’t win in life when you are losing in your mind. Change your thoughts and it’ll change your life.”  Tony Gaskins


The action is, therefore, the last key in the process. However, it must be practiced as well as first two. Continuous action based on our thoughts and feeling will grow your confidence bigger and bigger. Without action, it will remain only a dream in your head. If you never do it, how will you ever know what else you are capable of doing?

How to, Practical Example

Let’s say your dream is to buy a new house for the first time. This is something positive and can make your life better. Since you never bought a house before, you don’t believe you can do it. Your logical thinking justifies this by saying stuff like “I can’t afford it. It’s not going to happen for me. How will I ever get the money for it?”

Now, by following the instructions from above, you can dream about it all the time. Dreams are free. They don’t have a price. It cost you nothing except a little bit of your day. Try to do this first thing in the morning, and before you go to bed. Think about it, meditate, feel happy.

As you do this, do some action such as research of the market, prices, go and see a few houses. Just browse around. Feel the house when you are there, stand inside and smell it, touch the walls, imagine it is yours, make a dummy offer… Take those good feeling with you, and keep the dream alive!

When you feel confident enough, just go for it! Of course, don’t just irrationally do it. Instead, do some real planning, talk with the bank, see a real estate agent, make a deposit, in other words, do all things necessary to properly organize and plan your further action.

All of these will attract that house to you. If you don’t believe me, try with something smaller then. Think about your favorite food right now. I’ll bet you, you’ll eat that pizza very soon.

Believe in You and There is no End to You

I hope this resolved your concern regarding how to Think and Grow Rich question in your mind. This is something I practice when I want to go for my dreams and goals. Never before I believed I will be able to do some things which I am successfully doing today, simply by following these steps I learned by studying Think and Grow Rich and everything related to this kind of thinking. If I can do it, who can say that you can’t do even better than me?!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

  1. i have read your post, “Think and grow rich” , i found it very enlightning and very informative, i would like to wish you good look, i will be following you with interest.

  2. Hello, Ivan! Amazing article!
    I prefer meditation.
    There is a good reason meditation has endured and even grown in popularity far beyond any religious context. Meditation has tremendous benefits for virtually every aspect of life and those who integrate it into their daily lifestyles can experience those benefits virtually as soon as they start. You don’t have to be a guru at meditation to realize benefits from the very first time to give it a try.

    • Hi Mario!

      I agree. However, every religion has its true concept based on a form of meditation. A prayer, for example. Getting in touch with your spirit in your internal world to be able to express that spirit outside. Once a person gives it a go like you said, the benefits, tangible and intangible, will be visible immediately.

      Cheers for the great comment!
      All the best,

  3. Hey Ivan very well written. I really liked this post as it is very natural and full of information, A person who is relating to it while reading would definitely got a solution to his/her problem. I believe that positivity matters a lot in every situation whether you want to get richer or want to achieve anything or want to solve anything. You must remain positive and to remain positive you have a lot of techniques to apply. Like meditation helps a lot in expelling negativity out. So, your positive thoughts always help you to take further favourable actions. Thanks for sharing this post.

  4. Hey Ivan! I stumbled across your blog and HAD to stop and read! I love Napoleon Hill. I’ve read this exact book and listened to his audio cd’s several times. I really like how you broke all his views down into a readable and understandable PAGE! It’s awesome! And for someone like me that’s familiar with his work, it just reminds me to get back at it! Great post:)!

  5. Ah, Think and Grow Rich. Such a great, great book! It’s one that I bought to study, just as Bob Proctor does. There is so much wisdom in that book. I love how you broke it down here. Thinking –> Feeling –> Action. I think people think that Law of Attraction is just wishing. In reality, it’s seeing what you want VERY CLEARLY and then acting on inspiration.

    One of the things I most took away from Think and Grow Rich is to make a FIRM DECISION. (I’m pretty sure he even puts it right upper case letters just like that. It’s THAT important.) Without that, you know what happens. wishy-washy results.

    Great article, and I enjoyed reading it very much!

  6. Hi great post the power of positive confession is a great tool and has to come from a renewed mind, as a man thinks in his heart so is he, we need to remain and stay focused and on purpose think positive as we live in a word that is constantly feeding us negative information.

  7. This is an excellent article Ivan! Think and Grow Rich is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and you’re absolutely right, it has to be studied, not just read once.
    In my opinion, all three steps are equally important. How we think, we will feel and vice versa. We take action (or don’t) according to our thinking and feeling, so we have to make sure to feed our minds with positive and empowering thoughts and our bodies with positive emotions, in order to take action which will lead us toward positive results. Cheers!

    • Hi Blanka,

      This is an excellent comment! Thank you very much.

      Yes, we have to be in alignment in order to achieve a positive outcome. Mahatma Gandhi said it:

      “Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.”

      All the best,

  8. Great post as always Ivan, my father gave me Think and Grow Rich when I was 18 and I left it on my bedside table for over a year, when I finally picked it up I never put it down. I now have it in Audio book format and listen to it every few months. The most important thing in my opinion is what we what tell ourselves when nobody is around. After reading this book my intrinsic motivation is always on point. Thanks for sharing man.

    • Hi Marvin,

      It is nice to see you again. Thank you for your comment. I too found a neverending value in affirmations or auto-suggestion. In fact, the whole Think and Grow Rich concept is around influencing your subconscious mind through your five senses. It is amazing how it changes one’s life.
