A Quest for the Formula: Hill’s Methodology

Hill, who worked as a journalist as well as a salesperson, spent 20 years interviewing the most influential people in his time. This included Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison. His aim was to find the universal underlying principles that led to their success and then distill the principles into a practical guide for everyone. His objective? To distill universal principles that are the basis for their success into a simple guide. The result was a framework known as “Think And Grow Rich” that is built around 13 fundamental principles. These include belief, desire autosuggestion (auto-suggesting) specific information, planned planning and the power subconscious mind.

Insecurities and Skepticism “Think & become rich” Fall Short

  • Oversimplification and Lack of nuance The focus of the book on individual effort and unwavering convictions can overlook the impact of external factors in success including privilege, access to resources as well as social inequalities. It can be said that this method is over simplified and overlooks the complexity of the process of achieving success.
  • Insufficient scientific support and anecdotal evidence: Although Hill’s personal stories and interviews are fascinating however, they lack the rigor and precision required for research conducted in a scientific manner. This raises questions about the validity of his findings as well as the validity of his suggested methods.
  • The “Get Rich Quick” Mentality: Critics argue that the book’s focus on wealth and material success can lead to the “get rich quick” mindset, which could lead to an unhealthy obsession with money, and neglecting the other elements of personal satisfaction.
